Roy Rogers “King Of The Cowboys” From Ohio

With election day tomorrow, we’ve heard over and over again how important Ohio is as a swing state in the presidential election. As they’ve been saying, “Ohio, Ohio, Ohio”. So, I thought it appropriate to celebrate the birth date of the “King Of The Cowboys”, Roy Rogers (real name: Leonard Franklin Slye) who was born on this day in 1911, in Ohio! Roy died in 1998, but would have been 101 today.

According to Wikipedia:

“Leonard Franklin Slye was born to Andrew (“Andy”) and Mattie (Womack) Slye in Cincinnati, Ohio, where his family lived in a tenement building on 2nd Street. (Riverfront Stadium was constructed at this location in 1970 and Leonard would later joke that he had been born at second base.)”

Here’s a brief tribute video to Roy Rogers, “King Of The Cowboys” and his wife Dale Evans, “Queen Of The West”:
