"Applegate was with the first large party of settlers who journeyed to Oregon in 1843 when he was but eight years old. His story was first told in 'Recollections of My Boyhood.' Mrs. Porter traveled to Denver in 1860 but was so appalled by the people and conditions there she persuaded her husband to continue on to California. Her first person account was originally told in 'By Ox Team to California."
