What would the most likely mode of transportation have been for a large group of people to travel from Schuylkill Co., PA to Clearfield Co., PA in about 1855? I know that it could have been by horse and wagon but was it possible to do this trip by raft or boat? Train?

I have an early mention of "landing in Clearfield from Dauphin Co.

My Heberlings, Hands, and Kesslers traveled from Schuylkill Co. to Clearfield Co. (Sandy TWp.) in about 1855. All opinion Welcome. Thanks Doreen
