Jim, I am most pleased to see this 1903 article by a bemused Grace B. Ward. The article and author have escaped my notice. I am always eager to find anything on cowboy verse that predates Thorp and Lomax. As you say the words are almost identical to Thorp's presentation and it may not be outside of reason to think that this article may have been Thorp's source.
