David Cazier, autobiography, typescript, BYU, Pg. 1

There was one man in camp by the name of Orten Burns who had married Josiah Miller's daughter Harriet, and all the property he had was one cow. While we were on the bank of the Mississippi waiting for the ferryboat, he concluded not to go any further, so he kissed his wife, took his cow and went back. I remember as a boy seeing his wife crying. She stayed with her father and gave birth to a boy child in the winter of 1846. After crossing the Mississippi we moved on and passed as it was a new found country, for we were now in Iowa, which was sparsely settled at that time. We hadn't gone far till we had to make our own roads. It rained and we traveled and camped sometimes a week in a place and then move on again.
