Hey, Gang, thought you might like to know about this, since it has come up in
our discussions about those who went to California! I borrowed this from
Washington County, AR List.

Subj: [ARWASHIN] Gold Rush 49ers from Washington Co.
I received a copy of CHEROKEE TRAIL DIARIES by Fletcher, Fletcher, and
Whiteley this weekend. This is a terrific 400 page account of both the 1849
and 1850 trips and well worth the $29.00.
On pp. 24 and 25, there are the names of Washington Co. folks who were on
the 1849 trip to CA. I found my gg grandfather, Jacob Myers, who was not
mentioned in the Flashback article that I saw.
Here's a list of the names from the book which includes others not mentioned
