About Daisy Belle Catherine Brown Pier Goldsby Ackley

Find a Grave

Author of "Wagon Wheels A'Rollin' "

Daisy Bell Catherine Brown was only eight years old in 1880, when her physician father, her mother, grandmother, siblings and other relatives decided to join the wagon train in May Day, Kansas, and head for Oregon on the Old Oregon Trail.

Wagon Wheels A'Rollin', which she began writing seventy-two years later when she was eighty years old, is the story of the trip. In her lifetime she married three times: First to David Pier, at the age of sixteen, to whom she bore eight children. When he died, she married Al Goldsby, and after his death, Charles Ackley, whom she also outlived. She died at the age of ninety-three. Daisy saw it all, from a wagon train crossing the plains to astronauts in space. She tells how it was on the American frontier, when men were men and women were glad of it.
