Alice C. Baggett

I'm looking for info about Alice C. Baggett.
According to family myth, she was born on a wagon train in Arizona, c1850. The family ended up in Mariposa, CA and the parents(names and particulars unknown)both died. Instead of being sent back to wherever she came from, a woman named Cathey in Cathey's Valley, CA. raised her. Alice married a Mariposa man, William H. Simpson, in 1869 and died in the Bay Area in 1886.
Extra clues:
1. a man named Andrew Dever Cathey lead a wagon train from Benton and Collegeville, Arkansas to california c1852.
2. Alice named her only son Russell McCaskill Simpson, so there may be a McCaskill connection, too.
Thanks for the help!
