Hello Bill - Fred Clarke was originally a baseball player for the Pittsburgh Pirates, hence the name of the ranch. If my memory is correct, the Courier ran a long story on him during the 50's. For his player and manager stats, check out

See ya, Charlie Hauber

Bill - from the baseball reference, Fred was born on 10/03/1872, so in the middle fifties, he would have been in his early 70's. Also, I remember that his daughter's family lived in Bartlesville, Okla. Her husband, I believe, was with Phillips. The pirate ranch was north of Winfield and a little south of the Udall turn off. Good river bottom land with the creek and a lot of trees, set up against the bluff that ran through the property. Just the place for an old ball player to retire.
