Chester Allen Arthur Byers was born January 18, 1892, in Knoxville, Knox County, Illinois, the son of Jessie and Eliza Jane Gray Byers. About 1895 the family moved to Mulhall, Logan County, Oklahoma. Chester, or Chet as he was later known, remembered walking with his father in Mulhall and seeing men riding into town fitted out with chaps, ropes, and big hats. He thought growing up to be a cowboy would be the most wonderful thing in the world.
