Lizzie Johnson accomplished many things in her life. She was
a teacher, accountant, investor and independent businesswoman. However, her best
know persona was that of a respected cattlewoman but she was still very much the
lady. She earned the status of an early Texas “Cattle Queen” by registering her
cattle brand under the name of Elizabeth Johnson in 1871 and is thought to be
the first woman in Texas to ride the Chisholm Trail with a herd of cattle that
she acquired under her own brand.
Hear tales of cattle drives, her unconventional marriage
including a premarital contract and the history of Texas from the early 1860’s
through the end of the cattle era.
