In 1867, six adolescents made the arduous journey to the new state of Kansas leaving behind their home state of Georgia. Their misfortunes and decisions shaped their lives and for some even influenced the next generation.

They started their travel west with very little in the way of material resources but carried with them an abundance of hope. The chance for prosperity, marriage, and employment was their encouragement. Poverty and loss of the familiar held many back but not this selected few. Survival skills and help from someone who had made the journey before them helped them start a new life in Kansas.
