Major Gordon Praw brought to TX from KY. He was later sold to Mr Hayner, Red Oak, TX. He is the sire of at least five Sellman foundation mares bred to Major Gordon, their 1/2 brother.
Other information says: Young Octoroon 1715 was said to be by Octoroon 302 and out of a mare by old Joe Brown, son of Davy Crocket; 2nd dam was the Dr. Runyon saddle mare from upper Kentucky. It is not said which Davy Crocket. If from the Davy Crocket family of Blackburnís Davy Crocket 603, then there was a good dose of pacing blood, for Blackburnís Davy Crocket was believed to be of the Dansereau family of pacers. In any case, Young Octoroon ran, trotted and paced, winning races at those three gaits.
