Stories From the Farm and Ranch

Pat Sauble 1921-2019

Pat Sauble was a lifetime Chase (and Marrion) County, Kansas, farmer and rancher who was proud of his pioneering ancestry. The Sauble ranch, that Pat ran until his death, was homesteaded by his grandfather in 1856. It is one of the oldest continuously operating ranches in the state. Mark Feiden and Jim Hoy met with Pat on May 8, 2019, in Newton, Kansas.

NOTE: When I started thinking about this project several years ago, there were two people on the top of my list to interview and Pat, well known for both his storytelling and wealth of knowledge, was one of them. I regret that I didn't get started sooner as Pat had been through a rough patch when we finally sat down to talk. I don't think that this one story we recorded represents Mr. Sauble all that well—but I thought it was important that he be included in the project. I am very pleased to have arranged with Pat's biographer, Bonnie Lynn-Sherow, to share select stories from her many hours of taped interviews. We'll be working to get these on the site in the coming months.—Mark Feiden
