The UFO Family Brand

This is a bit of a personal post from a member of our UFO Team. On his son's first birthday, he got a tattoo on his leg. His son is named after his great-great-grandfather, William Richard. The brand is a "Bar Q" brand, currently registered in a mid-western state by living family members.

Our UFO Team member neglected to ask how long the brand has been registered and in use, but he believes it to date back to his grandfather.


  1. Yes, it hurt, a lot.
  2. No, the shaved area will not stay shaved in an effort to "better display the tattoo."
  3. It's a brand, as in a cattle brand, not a cereal or shoe brand.

- Numerous facts were gathered from the private Richard Family Estate collection. These facts span numerous sources of information and contain genealogical data, photos, and newspaper articles.
