The Kendrick Family

TRAIL END WAS home to the John B. Kendrick family. One of Wyoming's most successful rancher/politicians, Kendrick was a self-educated Texan who began his career as a penniless cowboy and ended it as a United States Senator. In between, he was a rancher, banker, land developer, entrepreneur and Wyoming Governor. His wife, Eula Wulfjen Kendrick, was also from Texas. Along with their children, Manville and Rosa-Maye, John and Eula led colorful lives, both in Wyoming and our nation's capital.
