  • Notes 
    • About 1896, Hamp began his career as a cowboy and ranch hand on the Tamblyn-Todd-Moore Ranch at Checotah, Oklahoma. His personal land allotment onthe ranch adjoined that of Will Rogers, another part-Cherokee hand, and they shared a room, soon becoming good friends.

      After about eighteen years with the same firm, serving much of the time as foreman, Hamp went into farming and ranching on his own, eventually acquiring a spread of about 2,000 acres and becoming highly successful.
