The colorful ranching history of Don Wagensen and his sister, Opal Marquiss, families’ extends back in time nearly 100 years. Don and Opal were raised on the west part of their ranch known as Three Mile Creek. Their father, Fred Wagensen, then purchased the old G Bar M Ranch on the Belle Fourche River. The G Bar M dates back to the Morton Sheep Company of the late 1800’s and the very early 1900’s. Then after John Morton passed away he left the G Bar M to this trusted range manager, Bill Bishop. Known for raising and selling horses, Bishop sold the ranch he’d been given and within a few years Fred Wagensen acquired the G Bar M Ranch. It has remained with the Wagensen and Marquiss families for over 60 years.
NOTE: The West Parcel of the Flying T Ranch has sold.
