My Grandfather told a story about when he moved to New Mexico. His name was Robert Irvin. He talked about being in a wagon. He told me he was about 12 or 13 years old. He was born in 1909 in Poteau Oklahoma, which sets next to the Arkansas line.
He was traveling with an older brother George Irvin, his wife Pearl and a sister, Beulah Irvin. I'm not sure that they were in this wagon train in 1923 but it seems possible. I would like to know If you might have some kind of a list of the families that traveled?
