Lets try this again. I am looking for any info I can as to what paper this was in, and if there were any follow up articles. I would also be interested in info on any of the names mentioned. Willie Myers was my hubby's grandfather.
I think the MA should be MD.
Thanks for any help

Mar 28, 1900
A crowd of several hundred persons thronged the railroad depot at Westminster Monday evening to witness the departure of a number of Carroll Countains for Rugby Junction, ND. Many shed tears on departing. They party consisted of Elder David Shorb, who is the leader, his wife and six children; Joseph H. Shorb, Arthur Georger S. Myers, William E. Myers, Samuel Lum, William S. Petry, William E. Wolfe, Engler, wife and six children; Miss Fannie Routzahn, Daniel Culbertson and wife, C.S. Myers and others. They will do their own cooking on a special train which has been provided with enough provisions to last them during the trip.
