Daddy Sam Oglesby wanted to be a cowboy. In 1883, when he was 16, he rode a stagecoach from Virginia to West Texas. On the last night, they made him ride on top because he was the youngest rider.
His hat blew off one night while and he lost it. He got off the stagecoach in Mertzon, Texas. With his last five dollars he bought a new cowboy hat from a 14 year old girl at the General store. Two years later they eloped against her father’s strong and reasonable objections!
He mortgaged his horse to pay for the train tickets to San Angelo Texas. At the courthouse, they interrupted a trial and asked the judge to marry them. The judge stopped the trial and the jury served as witnesses.
Then they went home to face the music.
They were married for over 50 years and raised eight children on a ranch with no running water and no electricity.
Everyone called him Daddy Sam.
Daddy Sam’s Bar-B-Que Sawce was born on his ranch in West Texas. The Oglesby family had a lot of family picnics and made a lot of Barbeque. Carefully nurtured through the generations, this great sawce is now available to you. We hope you like it.
