The son of noted rancher Burk Burnett, for whom the nearby Town of Burkburnett (18 Mi. NE) was named, tom L. Burnett (b.1871) became one of the leading area cattlemen. Trained on his father's 6666 (Four Sixes) Ranch, Tom later owned the local Triangle Ranch, as well as rangeland in Cottle and Foard Counties. A prominent civic leader and philanthropist, he was known for his friendliness to Indians, including the famous Chief Quanah Parker.
