The memoir is a twenty-one page typewritten account of a wagon train journey taken by Emma Frances Dugan - including 3 photographs
(most likely herself and her husband), along with her husband and three small children. They travelled from Corydon, Iowa
to Walla Walla, Washington - leaving Iowa on May 7, 1862.
Emma Frances Dugan left on her journey in 1862 - while a young wife and mother. As she writes her memoir in 1893, she notes
it has been 41 years since her journey. From the memoir, it appears that her husband was a lawyer, because along the way he
sells his law books to lighten their load in Omaha - all she kept was a Bible given to her by her father. No other information
is given in her memoir about herself, or even names of her husband and children.
