Note: Email letter from Deb Wake swake@earthlink.net 30 Nov 1999 19:57:
Adam Lewis (#12112423) was born August 31, 1878. On April 7, 1901, he married Effie Lee Earman in the home of Rev. H.C. Early. [Lillian provided the place.] Effie's parents were James Capoke "Jim" Earman and Margaret "Maggie" Carpenter. I know nothing more than their names. My cousin Jim tells me that the Carpenters all died of TB. Last night, I also met a Carpenter via the internet. He has some that tie into Keezletown. I hope to learn more from him, from my cousin Jim, and from the cemetery. I'm thinking that my mother saw Carpenters near the Harrisons tombstones, but didn't realize that they might be relatives. After corresponding with the Carpenter last night, I decided to look in the book for them and then in your stuff. I didn't go into it, but I noticed that you have quite a few listed. I can't help but feel that they may have travelled down from Oyster Bay with the Harrisons, Lincolns, Tallmans, and the lot. Jim knows who has the Earman family Bible and my mother knows the families too. Jim feels certain that they will share the information with me--so, another source. Good thing, because I'm finding very little about Earman. I'm wondering if they changed their name. Jim did tell me that it is German. Effie was born December 1, 1878 and died March 28, 1962. Adam died in 1952. They raised my mother and I know where their house is. I will tell you a little about their children, many of whom I've met, all are now dead.

Johnson on 13 November 1863.1 Catharine E. Harrison married Frances Marion Hostetter, son of Abraham Hostetter and Mary Burns, on 1 January 1873.1
Note: Letter written by Lenus J. Hostetter:

"Mr. W. H. Harrison and family left Waubeek, Iowa, April 20, 1858, and finally landed in Red Bluff, Cal., Oct. 20, 1858, just six months later. At Council Bluffs, two families, the Ballis and Hart families, joined them.
As they crossed the plains they met with a party of Sioux Indians. Black Bear, the chief, was a Mason, and when Mr. Harrison gave him a sign, the chief embraced him and that night the Indians and Mr. Harrison formed a circle and smoked the pipe of peace. Black Bear gave Mr. Harrison a war club made of a steel ball with a long handle, covered with raw hide with a buckskin loop at the end to carry it with. This is still preserved in the family.
This friendly chief went on ahead of the emigrant train next morning to tell his warriors not to molest the party, saying he would return in three days, which he did and advised Mr. Harrison that he and his party would be safe as long as they were in Sioux territory.
At Bear River, two more families, the Jacob Smith and Goose families, joined the party.
At the City of Rocks, six Indians came up to the train on their ponies with bows strung and quivers filled with arrows. All the men with guns in Mr. Harrison's party were put under cover in the wagons and Mr. Harrison rode ahead and told the Indians to get out of the road, which they did and asked for biscuits, which were given them and they rode away, although signal lights were being sent up all around by the tribe.
That night the emigrant train overtook the 6th Infantry, U.S.A., also on its way to California, and the Indians disappeared. This was a fortunate meeting as provisions were getting scarce and Lieut. Harris issued rations to them and gave them a guard each day; they could not march as rapidly as the mule teams of the soldiers but would overtake them at night.
An old Mormon joined the party for a few days, riding an old white pack horse, but decided to travel by himself. After an absence of a couple of days, he came up to them without shoes, hat or horse, having been robbed by the Indians as well as shot at. Being foot-sore and unable to walk he was taken in one of the wagons.
At Thousand Spring Valley, Utah, while camping over night, a party of Indians stole one of the oxen; proceeding the next day through a canyon, the missing ox came out of the brush to them, covered with blood where the Indians had prodded him in their efforts to make him go.
The 6th Infantry was with the emigrants until they reached Humboldt Valley, Nevada, here the latter turned off the trail to Honey Lake Valley, Lassen Co., Cal., where most of them settled."

Mrs. Hostetter's first husband, Thomas Benton Johnson, was born in Missouri, crossed the plains in the early '50s and afterward sojourned in various places in California and Nevada. The day after their marriage in Humboldt Co., Nevada, they started for California and settled later at Red Bluff from which place in 1871 removal was made to Susanville. Her second husband, Francis Marion Hostetter, was also born in Missouri, crossed the plains in 1862, and settled in Lassen Co., taking up land then wholly unimproved, but under his supervision was transformed into a valuable estate. He also owned and operated a sawmill; later he sold his ranch and bought 160 acres, now owned by his widow. This tract presented a dreary aspect of sagebrush, destitute of even the slightest attempt of improvement, but is now highly improved as well as a later purchase of forty acres. Mrs. Hostetter is intensely interested in matters agricultural and has her entire estate under cultivation and devoted to alfalfa, dairying and general farm products.2
