Can you name all these Sixties child stars in Bonanza?

Any Boomer knows these famous TV faces, but can you remember their names?

Bonanza was as much a family drama as it was a Western. Sure, there were plenty of shootouts, saloon fights and cattle rustlers, but the dynamics between brothers Adam, Hoss and Little Joe, plus their tough but wise father, Ben, made this Old West series different than many of the others on TV at the time.

The Cartwrights were always willing to lend a hand to anyone in need, and in doing so welcomed many kids to the Ponderosa. Some were lost, others just passing through Virginia City. 

Here are 10 kids from Bonanza that you may recognize from other TV and movie appearances. How many can you name?

If they asked the names of the characters they played I would have done better 7/10
