Editor’s note: This is the first in a two part series.

In September 2019, “The Lone Ranger,” TV’s first western using the theme of the Texas Ranger, turned 70 years old. Since the earliest days of the film industry, Hollywood has made many movies about the Texas Rangers. Dozens of the earliest silent films were centered on a Ranger as the main character. Those under the age of 40 probably only know the name “Lone Ranger,” but not much about the story.

Floyd McKee is a native of Seguin. He is a retired Air Force Colonel and eight of his ancestors were among the 33 Rangers that organized and developed Walnut Springs and Seguin.
