Subject: [CA-GOLDRUSH-L] Most Wanted: William Furgeson CARTMILL
I seek information and descendants of William Furgeson CARTMILL, who departed Randolph Co MO in 1850 and arrived in CA about August 1850. He was located first on the North Fork of the American River, along with Benjamin Franklin BARNES. Barnes died of cholera in November of that year. CARTMILL returned to MO and married Sophia Barnes, sister of his former partner. He and his new bride returned to CA by boat down the MS, across the Gulf of Mexico to Nicaragua, across Nicaragua and by boat to San Francisco. They went by stage to the goldmines in Amador Co. Later they lived in Tulare Co. I would like to contact descendants of the CARTMILLS and learn more of this family. James Craig (email@example.com)
