                   CALIFORNIA EMIGRANTS

California Emigrants:  Atchison Co., like almost every section of the country in the United States, 
during the years 1849 and 1850, was afflicted with the gold mania, and so prevalent did it become,

population caught the infection and took up their line of march for the golden shores of California.  
Among the pioneers who wended their way thither, braving the dangers of the long and lonely route, were the following:
