JOHN J. MONROE and THE FINLEY RIVER STRAIN




In trying to document the history of the treeing walker breed I have to dig in a lot of old magazines and pictures and letters people send me to try and help with this process. One of the important players in the treeing walker breed is John Monroe and the Finley River Strain. I guess it would be fair to say that it is the oldest active strain still going today. There is still heavy bred Finley River hounds today even though it has been 55 years since Chief was born.

The credit for the Finley River Strain of Treeing Walkers can be given to a number of people. To John Shetler for having the top stud of his day Shetler's Sonny Boy, that people wanted to bring their good females to breed to him. To Glenn Bixler who had the foresight to breed his future Hall Of Fame female Bixler's Supreme Sally to Shetler's Sonny Boy. To Herb Carsten of Springfield, Missouri who brought a five week old pup named Corn Belt Chief home in a shoe box. Herb changed the pups name to Finley River Chief and the name of a strain was born.

In 1965 John Monroe had the foresight to buy a hound called Finley River Spot. In the fall of that year Spot was the World Champion Coon Hound. In November of that year John also had the foresight to pay $3000.00 for an 8 1/2 year old hound named Finley River Chief, Spot's daddy. John owned Chief almost 7 years to the day with Chief dying at 15 1/2 years of age.

Through those 7 years and the many years after John J. Monroe promoted the Finley River Strain not with hype but honor. He not only advertised Finley River Chief and Spot at stud he offered many of the top hounds of the Finley River Strain through the years to follow. FINLEY RIVER PETE, MONROE'S FINLEY RIVER JOE, KENTUCKY RIVER CHIEF, MONROE'S LITTLE CHIEF, BEAVER LAKE LIGHTING, FINLEY RIVER CHIEF JR., HI WAY 13 RUFF, BUFFALO RIVER ACE, LONE PINE DEWEY, FINLEY RIVER SMOKY, FINLEY RIVER ZOOM, SILVER LAKE CHIEF, BUFFALO RIVER TANNER. Just some of the dogs John has advertised at stud through the years to promote the Finley River Stain.

For sure when someone is talking about Mr. Finley River they should be talking about John J. Monroe. Not because he was responsible for the birth of Chief, not because he named Chief. But he was responsible for taking Chief at 8 1/2 years of age and promoting him and his offspring in such a way that Finley River Chief and the Finley River Strain would become a very important part in the Treeing Walker Breed. John Monroe had the foresight to see how good this strain was and he gave it a chance to prove itself to the public.

I have known John Monroe I guess around 42 years. I have always found him to be an honorable man through all these years. If he said something or made a deal with you a contract wasn't needed. His word was his bond and it still is today. I am sure there are some people who don't like John. Being in this sport someone always don't like someone else. So after being in the business for so long I am sure everyone isn't a fan. But if you have ever taken the time to try and get to know John you will find out he is one of the good guys even if you don't agree with him completely.

Mr. Finley River - John J. Monroe

I voted simply by guessing and name recognition. I voted for the Lone Pine one. Only because I had as my first pup one out of Houses Bawlie and a bitch that carried Bixler's Supreme Sally and Shetler's Sonny Boy. Motley's Missouri Major was somewhere on on side or other too.
He was good but weak mouth but i did not care because I was young and probably never more than a hundred yards behind him when he treed. Wasn't any sitting on the tailgate watching cartoon drawings if you wanted to have a coondog back then.
Back to Lone Pine, which was many years later, I got one out of Hickory Nut Harry X Lone Pine cross that is probably my dog of a lifetime.

There was, JMO, as much difference in Old Harry and Stylish HNH as there was between Old Sackett and JR. I wouldn't have bet a nickel on Jr.

I'm just reminiscing and guessing where I went wrong.

I didn't vote because I know nothing about either. The one on the left is built like an old Smokey River blue tic I use to have. I sure like the old long ears.

You might want to check this link. EVERY dog I mentioned John Monroe owned and advertised at one time. And I could add more then what I listed. As for Bellar's dog I think you are thinking about Kentucky River Buck aren't you?

Monroe stud dogs

One you left out was Finley River Pete, He's in the Treeing Walker Hall Of Fame for good reason, He and Duvall's Lone Pine Lady are the foundation of the Lone Pine dogs.

John did own Kentucky River Chief, I was standing there when he bought him off Mr. Elmer Harrod of Frankfort,Kentucky. He bought Finley River Joe off Mr. Harrod as well and Knob Creek Lead from Richard Masterson, Lead was out of Chief. John also did have the Lone Pine Dewey dog, I hunted with him while John owned him. Every dog on that list was owned and advertised at stud by John Monroe at one time or another.

As far as other Finley River Breeders, none of them would be in business if it weren't for John having Finley River Chief, he gave $3000 for the old dog at nine years old and the majority of the pups out of Chief were bred after John bought him.

Tom, it wasn't intentional. I was planning on putting Pete in the poll and thought I had, but didn't go back and check the poll members before I published it. Sorry. Finley River Pete should have been and was intended to be in the poll. Pete and his brother Finley River Spike were both bred to Duvall's Lone Pine Lady. From these two crosses came a number of dogs that I think were important to the foundation of the Lone Pine Hounds.

Spike and Lady produced Lone Pine Satan, Lone Pine Eagle and Wolfe's Tree Picking Bill.

Pete and Lady produced Tall Oakes Spot, Finley River Sport and Magill's Lone Pine Jill.

Lone Pine Jill was bred to Mears' Finley River Dan to produce Logan's Wild Julie.

Lone Pine Jill was also bred to River Bend Flag to produce Logan's Wild Jeanie.

Logan's Wild Julie was bred to Owen's Hardwood Bozo to produce Logan's Wild Clover.

Clover was bred to Jeanie to produce Wessel's Wild Casey, Tony's Wild Clover, World Ch. Tony's Wild Joey.

Finley River Pete

Don:

There was another top hound from the Pete/Lady cross, Gr. NT.Ch. Finley River Sport, you put an ad on him on one of your other posts. I owned Pete from the time he was 8 until he died and also owned Sport, sold him to Mr. Don Boles in 73 or 74 for $3000 which was a pretty good price back then.

John hasn't got near the credit for what he's done for the Walker breed over the years, Lone Pine, Clover, Buck Creek, Yadkin River and a lot of other lines originated because of Old Chief. He helped the English breed as well, Hardtime Speck was out of a Chief female if I remember correctly. I've known the man for well over 40 years, bought some top dogs from him and he never once lied to me, he's blunt and hard headed like a lot of us but he's a gentleman.

Thanks for reminding me Tom, I made the correction. I also ran across the ad the other day announcing the sale of Sport. I'll try to find it again and scan it so I can put it up. Would that ad had been in the Cooner or Full Cry? I have also asked one of the moderators if they could put Pete in the poll in place of one that hasn't gotten any votes. Hope they can do that.

The one we are talking about here was owned by Tom Humphrey. Hope I spelled his last name correct. He is barrelmaker on here.

There is another Finley River Sport that John also offered at stud but the one we are talking about on this thread is out of Finley River Pete and Mr. Humphrey owned him before he sold him to Mr. Boles.



NITE CHAMPION FINLEY RIVER SPORT
