At the age of 16 Oscar hopped a freight train and headed west to South Dakota where he worked as a cowboy. In 1911 he removed to Wyoming and laid claim to land near Alcova for homestead purposes. In the beginning he worked the land with his father and brother, Frank, but after they left to go back to Illinois, he bought their claims and his ranch eventually encompassed 8,500 acres. He was a veteran of World War 1, and served with the United Staes Army. When Oscar left his homestead to join the army, he left his saddle and tent rolled up on a mound of rocks to stake his claim. When he returned his possessions were exactly as he had left them, undisturbed.
He started spelling his middle name with the "E", although he was born Oscar Truman Annis.

Richard and Oscar Annis are no longer buried at Highland Cemetery (Casper). They were disinterred on 13 Jun 2008 and buried at the family ranch as well as the other Annis family members. They also gave me the names of Elizabeth Ruth Annis (D: 26 Aug 1937, age 37), Mrs. Esther Annis (D: 20 Sep 1937, age 26), and Carol E. Annis (D: 26 Aug 1937, age 45).
