During the mad rush to California for gold in the early fifties, Smith Deskins, her husband,
started for California, went as far as Larmer, nebraska, took cholera and died and was buried

"I am completing work on a book manuscript dealing with deaths on Oregon/California/Mormon Trails, 1841-65 and encountered your post for the death of Smith DESKINS http://www.coalexchange.com/smith/mcdowella/pafg723.htm "On October 7, 1850, the St. Louis Missouri Republican published a list entitled "Deaths On The Plains." One of the names was "Duskins, S, age 35", who died June 23, 1850 of cholera at Ft. Laramie and was from Grundy County, MO. "Although the family name is spelled slightly differently (not uncommon in old newspaper accounts) this entry clearly refers to the death of Smith Deskins as there is no "Larmer", Nebraska and "Lamar", Nebraska is far south of the trail used in the overland travel era. "Larmer" is a garbled version of Laramie..."
"...Thank you for your recent e-mail on Smith Deskins. I have added your comments in my Notes for Smith Deskins. My son, who is the GPS Coordinator for the NPS, and I visited Ft. Laramie some 3 to 4 yrs ago. He talked with the Park Superintendent about any problems that he could help them with and as it turned out my son thru aerial photography and GPS helped them locate an old graveyard at the Fort. This could be where Smith Deskins was laid to rest..."
