Bob Lilly === That is not correct. Lilly was the Cowboys' first draft pick, but that was in 1961. The 1960 team was stocked via an expansion draft. They got 32 players from other NFL teams, but it wasn't in a round-by-round draft. The Cowboys did not participate in the college draft because they were awarded the franchise after the college draft was held.
So its hard to say who was the FIRST Cowboy.
Oilman Clint Murchison, Jr., and Bedford Wynne were the first owners of the Dallas Cowboys when they received the rights to the new National Football League franchise in 1959. Murchison later sold the team to another oilman, H.R. "Bum" Bright.
If you mean what is the name of the first pro football team in Dallas, it was the Dallas Texans of the American Football League. They later moved to Kansas City and renamed to the Chiefs.

The Dallas Steers
The Dallas Cowboys' first year in the National Football League was 1960. In 2014, they will be competing in their 55th season.
A Cowboys owner did once. Supposedly, the Cowboys' prospective owner Clint Murchison traded the rights to the song for Redskins' owner George Preston Marshall's support for an NFL franchise in Dallas in 1960.
There never was a female owner
The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders are a part of the Dallas Cowboys organization, so their paychecks are issued by the NFL team. Charlotte Jones Anderson, daughter of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, is the president and overall supervisor of the Cowboys Cheerleaders hierarchy.

The Dallas Cowboys joined the National Football League as an expansion team in 1960.
The Dallas Cowboys first met Pittsburgh Steelers in 1960 and played at the Cotton Bowl, which was the Cowboys home field for 11 seasons (1960-1971). It was also the Dallas Cowboys first game in the NFL.
Tex Schramm never owned the Dallas Cowboys. He was the team's president and general manager from 1960 to early 1989. But he literally was as powerful as an owner. For years, he operated the football program with little or no interference from the Cowboys' original owner, Clint Murchison.
