“Additions and Corrections”


By Ella Jane ALLISON McCarley

Gt. Gt. Granddaughter of John K. KENNEDY
We are trying to continue to complete the Roster of those that were actually on the train, and new information will be added to the Roster as it is received. Names in Boldface were on the Train.
The nucleus of the Kennedy Company was Iowa farm families, bound for northeastern Oregon, Walla Walla or the Powder River gold mines. They were among the earliest Companies whose destination was the Oregon country east of the Cascades. More important than plows and gold pans in those covered wagons the Kennedy Company brought the structure of civilization and a sense of History. On August 9th, 1862 they were four miles behind two smaller trains attacked by Indians at what became known as Massacre Rocks, Idaho. They came to the rescue at the cost of two lives and several wounded, something not all wagon trains would have done. The Kennedy Company understood that civilization doesn’t come cheap.
In later years, most former emigrants recorded themselves simply as having crossed the plains Veterans of the Kennedy Company, added “with the John K. Kennedy Company” making this wagon train easier to reconstruct than most. Three immigrants of the Kennedy train kept journals (two journals still exist in the entirety). An unusual number later wrote reminiscence and more journals were kept in other trains that traveled with the Kennedy Company in the larger consolidated train that crossed southern Idaho together for protection against Indians. This has to be among the best recorded of the Wagon Trains.
On Jun 10the there were 88 men, 46 women and 86 children, totaling 220 immigrants in the Kennedy Company. They traveled with 52 wagons, 315 cattle and 38 horses and mules. (Scott Journal). More joined as they crossed the plains. The 170 persons identified, or partially so below have been recorded as traveling with the Kennedy Company at one time or another
Framework of the reconstruction came from a list of family names written, or perhaps copied by Hattie Barns, daughter of Woodson Cummins and attached to her copy of the Scott Journal and others have been added from the Diaries and Family records.
Ella Jane Allison McCarley, Everall Cummins and Marti Ellis are doing further research for this ongoing project. Detailed information about the Kennedy, Cummins and Ellis families can be obtained from them. Goldie Mae Raley Caviness supplied material on the Raley Party.
Additional information is requested from other descendents of the Kennedy Train.
