Narrative

[viea.ged]
[Rayburn, Duran.GED]
Raised horses for the Civil War in Colorado. Left for Montana in 1875, during the Indian uprising. They thought too many white men were taking over the land. History of Montana says they arrived in Yellowstone Country near Fort Ellis in 1874. The family says 1876. They had stopped off in Wyoming or Idaho for the birth of Monte and had to wait for another wagon train going to Montana.
He built a cabin to live in, and because of the Indians they had to build a "fort" which the family went to when the Indians came around. They put the cattle in too because the Indians stole them otherwise. The stage coach stopped there for fresh horses, and a meal which Eliza prepared. The Pony Express also stopped there. It was a going concern when John B Morris came by - he knew a good thing when he saw it!
According to the obit, it says was 50 miles from the nearest Post Office, 10 miles to a white neighbor, and 550 miles to the nearest RR station, the only mark of civilization being the U.S. Government postage line which passed their ranch twice a day, carrying supplies to the Gov Soldiers who were holding the hostile Indians at bay near this point. He died of ulceration of the lungs, being sick but a short time. He had suffered from asthma most of his life.
