James and Joreen Ludeke settled in Wichita County in 1954 and raised their 6 children on their ranch located on the former site of the Four Sixes Horse Ranch and the North West Oil field. Their film collection features scenes of farm life set against a backdrop of North Central Texas prairie, the Red River, and Oklahoma in the distance. Also included within the collection are special events, such as family trips, holidays, family weddings, the 1968 HemisFair in San Antonio, and the Texas Sesquicentennial celebrations held in 1986 in Wichita Falls. This home movie footage (c. 1960), documents various combinations of the five young Ludeke children playing in the Red River bottomlands on their Burkburnett ranch, as well as in the front yard of the Kocureks' home.
