Sarah Raymond Herndon ↠ 8 ReadThis first person account tells the story of Sarah Raymond Herndon crossing the plains in 1865 Sarah her mother and brothers decided to leave war stricken Missouri for the west in hopes of improving their circumstances Sarah was twenty four years old when her family began the long trek which would lead them to Virginia City Montana a mining town She was well educated and kept a diary with a clear account of what happened on the four month journeySarah viewed life through the lens of a strong Christian whose beliefs eflect those of the mid nineteenth century faithful Through this lens we see her appreciation for the beauty of God s creation and her great compassion for her fellow travelers Also in the pages of the book is Sarah s love of iding her pony Dick her care and nurturing of those who fall sick and her admirable love and loyalty for her friendsSo many of Sarah s stories eveal details and events one would scarcely imagine Two weeks into the journey one of the men in the wagon train is shot and killed accidently by a gun that was believed to be inoperable The funeral was held at a local Presbyterian Church and Sarah has this to say about the Presbyterian faith of the mid nineteenth century What a precious what a comforting satisfying faith the Presbyterian faith must be According to their belief one never dies nothing ever happens without God s providence approval and foreknowledge that it will happen in just that way I wish I could accept such a faith and believe it but I cannot I do not believe it was ordained that Mr Milburn should die in and believe it but I cannot I do not believe it was ordained that Mr Milburn should die in way and at that time I believe it was an accident that might have been prevented by the most trivial circumstance The laws of nature are inexorable If a bullet is shot into a vital part of the body it kills When the wagon train progressed to the area of Fort Kearney in south central Nebraska it passed the graves of eleven men that were killed the previous August by the Indians Fourteen people made up the party of twelve men and two women who were wives of two of the men When one of the men was away fetching water from a creek the other eleven men were killed and the two women were taken hostage The Esperanza renace remaining maneported the incident to a nearby station Soldiers pursued the Indians and escued the women One of the women had seen her husband killed and was insane She died a short time later The other woman was the wife of the man who had been at the creek That couple was from St Joseph MissouriExcitement could crop up in the blink of an eye Mr Morrison s team an away one afternoon after being frightened by an ant hill The ant hill was the size of a chicken house Several men were nearby and caught up with the American Masters of the Mississippi Gulf Coast: George Ohr, Dusti Bonge, Walter Anderson, Richmond Barthe runaways stopping them just as the front wheels went over the bank of aiver Sarah says Mrs Morrison did not scream or try to jump out nor did she allow any of her four children to do so Instead she acted like the sensible woman that she is Sarah was a keen observer of the beauty along the way and did her best to put it into words Here is a glimpse of what she saw on July 18 The masses of fleecy white clouds with the brightness of the morning sun shining upon them as they floated around and over the top of the mountain made an ever changing beauteous panorama that I cannot describe As the clouds ose higher and higher they seemed to mass over the top of the mountain as in benediction glittering in the sunshine until they seemed to melt away Neelie one of Sarah s dear friends on the move west came down with mountain fever Rocky Mountain spotted fever is caused by ticks which introduce bacteria Nowadays it is easily treated if the treatment begins soon after the symptoms appear fever headaches aching muscles ash Sarah wondered what caused the fever and whether it was contagious an indication of how little was known at that time Sadly Neelie died three weeks before the end of Sarah s journeyAbout two weeks before the end of the journey Of The Raymonds Oxen Became Poisoned "of the Raymonds oxen became poisoned a weed he ate s brothers tried to treat the animal to no avail Sarah and her mother put on their big aprons and began their work to save Joe They melted a uart of lard and put it in a long necked bottle They cut up a lot of fat bacon into strips and took a bucket of cold water When they got to Joe they put.
