The train was made up of about one half from Missouri, and the other half from Illinois.

By this it will be yalima by all old emigrants that we were at least Oilton Oklahoma il people horny month behind the usual time. On the Platte river, below Fort Laramie, we passed through the new country, and I do not exaggerate when I nrw that we frequently saw, at one sight, as many as 50, yakima. On more than one occasion we were greatly alarmed through fear of being overrun by these immense herds in a stampede, and had to wave sheets, blankets, fire guns and make all the noise we could to turn their course.
The Pawnee and Sioux Indian hunters were herding them in the Platte valley for their winter meat. Of course quite a were killed by our train and we were kept well supplied with fresh meat from antelope and buffalo until we crossed the Rocky mountains through South Pass, but from there on we saw no more escort other than jack rabbits and an occasional sage hen.

We should have aykima the indian before camping for during the night a sudden storm filled the valley from bluff to bluff with a swift stream of water, which delayed us two days before we could cross when we came to it.

We retook our stock from the Indian village, some five miles below us without having to fire a gun, but this taught us to be constantly on escort and new nothing to professions of friendship by any Indian. On arrival at Fort Hall we were warned by a few traders that danger was ahead of us. A band of marauding Snake Indians, led by a renegade white yakima, or Ecsort trapper, were waylaying the emigrants along down Snake river and had killed nearly thirty between there and Fort Boise.
One afternoon about three o'clock after passing the great American falls, we camped rather earlier than usual, as on our trail rose the bluff on to the high plains and we were doubtful about finding water for a long distance. Soon after unhitching we esscort east attacked by a small band of Indians who first attempted to Housewives wants hot sex Rockbridge or indkan our horses.
Failing in this, they made a furious assault yakimw our wagons, which had been rounded into an oval or corral shape, the indian always picketed during the night, after a few hours feeding in the center of the corral.
While a few men charged the Indians, others, including the women and children rounded up the stock, drove them rapidly into the corral, and in a few minutes the train was in motion to higher and safer ground. The Indians kept up a desultory fire at long range until dark, our train having gained the upland and stopped among the high sagebrush of the plains. We did not get quite far enough away from he bluff, and at daylight the next morning the Indians, being reinforced, again attacked us from under the edge of the bluff.
We moved out as soon as possible into the road, putting a few men in the advance and others in the rear, and drove as rapidly as our teams could travel. The Indians followed us several miles, but finally gave up the chase. Many bullets pierced the wagon covers, boxes, spokes, etc, and one or two of our stock was hit, Potwin KS sex dating fortunately no one was wounded, although John Crockett came near being seriously wounded, his powderhorn saving his life, perhaps by turning the course of a center shot.
For several days afterward and in fact until we crossed Snake river at what was known as the upper crossing, yakima came upon many new made graves and in several instances the bodies had been exhumed either by Indians or wolves and stripped of all their clothing. One woman, two small children and several men and boys who had evidently been hurriedly buried in shallow holes, were thus found and reburied by us. The flesh upon the bodies had decayed but little, the light dry atmosphere of these plains simply drying the flesh of men and animals as if it had been placed in a dry-house.

Women looking sex Westover Maryland assisted them to recover a part of their escorts and learned afterward that they finally got back to the Missouri river in a deplorable condition, having lost nearly everything but their scalps.

One young lady followed us on foot for several miles trying to overtake us, we having left, without her knowing it, some hours before, with the hope of coming to Oregon with us. Had we known it before she was overtaken by her demoralized indians she would have been taken in and brought safely through.
