Price Family

Alex Price and his two oldest sons, Clay, and Doug were very good cowboys and did a great deal of cowboying during their lifetimes. Alex was a charter member of the Upper Green River Cattle Association and ran his cattle in the upper Green River area as early as 1904. Alex and Mary Woods were married on December 9, 1907. They had three sons, Ellis “Clay,” Clarence “Doug,” and Alexander “Bill.” Doug and Bill lived on the ranch with their parents. Clay began to realize his dream of being a cowboy when he was only in his teens. He got a job working for the Upper Green River Cattle Association looking after cattle in the summer. He was the rough stock rider in 1943 when he became the horse wrangler and guide for the GP Bar Dude Ranch. He later owned his own ranch. Doug rode with his father and brothers until World War II when he served with the Seventh Infantry as a cannoneer in the Pacific Theater. Back home in the Green River Valley after the war, he again worked as a cowboy. Doug was one of the best cowboys on the Green River. This unforgettable character, with his bowlegs, indescribably, floppy, cowboy hat, and can of Copenhagen, was a very honest, intelligent, thoughtful, and helpful person.
