First name of Cheyenne Bodie (Clint Walker), a towering frontier scout and drifter on the western adventure CHEYENNE/ABC/1955-63.

As a baby, Cheyenne was found at the site of a wagon train massacre by Chief White Cloud (Richard Hale) who spared the baby’s life and named the white boy Grey Fox because he was so quiet and reserved.

When Grey Fox turned twelve-years-old, he left his Indian family to pursue his white heritage, taking the name of Cheyenne to honor his Indian benefactors.

Note: On the syndicated drama RENEGADE/SYN/1992-96 Kathleen Kinmont costarred as Cheyenne Sixkiller, the stepsister of native American bounty hunter, Bobby Sixkiller (Branscombe Richmond).


Born in Philadelphia, Jerome Alphonse Holst worked 30 years as a librarian. He has since retired and lives in Greensboro, North Carolina.
