|William D. "Bill" Fossett is a man many have heard of but no one knows. After carving out a career as a cowboy, cattleman and peace officer in early-day Kansas, Fossett became Kingfisher's first homesteader during the 1889 land run. A frontiersman of long experience and without fear, he rose to the position of Chief Deputy and, ultimately, U.S. Marshal for Oklahoma Territory.
W.D. "Bill" Fossett, Pioneer and Peace Officer, brings to life the exploits of a man considered by Pulitzer Prize winning author Marquis James to be, "one of the great, though unpublicized, peace officers of the powder-stained Southwest; a man to mention with Wild Bill Hickok and Bat Masterson."

"The Logan County History"
1978, Published by the History Committee of the Logan County Extension Homemakers Council, Helen Freudenberger Holmes (now deceased), chairman and editor.
This is a 2 volume set with volume 1 containing the histories of Logan County families who submitted the information to the committee. It is not comprehensive and the quality and quantity of information varies significantly from family to family. It is a very good source of information if there was anyone left of the family to submit family story. However, many of the early families are not represented because there is no one left in the area. Volume 2 contains a general history of the early years of Logan County. The books are no longer in print and used copies that are in good condition sell for around $500 if you can find them.
"Cowboy Flats, from Cow Country to Combine"
Written by M. C. Rouse.
Published in Coyle, Okla, 1972. 61 Pages and Illustrations.
