Bradley Glen McPeters, who was Father Murphy in Little House in the Prairie, states "Notes from Brad McPeters: My dad Rex Ree McPeters isn't the singer, Rex Allen, although they grew up together in Arizona. I believe Rex Allen's dad married a distant cousin (I'm not positive on this one.) I remember going to Uncle Cactus's house in North Hollywood with my parents and Rex Allen, Glenn Strange and Curtis would play & sing for us. It was great. Uncle Curtis had a band way back when. It was called "Cactus Mac & the Arizona Sun". They played at rodeos and such. They later became the "Sons of the Pioneers". Not all were the same members, though. Cactus played for a while with them. Also Festus", Ken Curtis, played with the "Sons". He was not a relative, though. He lived up here about 30 miles from in Clovis, California. He passed away a few years back. They have a statue of him there in Clovis. Boy!, could that guy sing. You would never of thought it by his voice on "Gunsmoke". "
