    For those interested in more information about Benton, OK, read the book Fifty Years on the Owl Hoot Trail by Jim Herron. This is an autobiography edited by Harry Chrisman and published by Prairie Books, Meade, Kansas. ISBN 978-0-9746222-4-8. Jim Herron was the first Sheriff of "No man's land," designation of the area now called the Oklahoma panhandle. He owned a hotel in Benton and a ranch near by. Jim married Alice Groves and their daughter, Ollie Dot, was born there.
