Re: Voices of Indian Territory
In Response To: Voices of Indian Territory ()

My great grandfather, Henry Taylor, sailed from London, Engand, to the Americas in 1862 and returned to Liverpool in 1867. He kept a journal which I have. In it there are three or four references to Dick Brashears. Here's the first:

"May 23rd 1864
"Went with one Dick Brashears to Crystal Spring Hotel, which is kept by a Yankee named Tony Oakes.
"June 6th 1864
"Returned by stage trail to the City (San Francisco).
"June 13th 1864
"Took service on ship for six months as Officers' Steward on the U.S. Surveying Cutter William and Mary".

If you think it may the Dick referrred to you may be the same as the one you refer to I would be happy to email you other extracts, or even the whole journal, if you would like.
