Transcript for Chandler, James J., Reminiscences and diary, 1882 Apr.-1910 Jan., 5-6
Arriving at St. Joe, we continued our journey up the Missouri River by steamboat to Wyoming. There we attached ourselves to Horton D. Haight's train owing to the teams from Willard City, the residence of my brother, being there. We remained at Wyoming waiting for this train for about six weeks. The wagons were loaded principally with wire for telegraph lines. We were ten weeks crossing the plains, but at last when at Coalville we were met by my Brother George Facer who came to meet us.
On the 15th of October 1866 we arrived at Salt Lake City and
on the 17th reached Willard City, the home of my brother.
