In 1926, Sarah Findley Radford, daughter of James Lindsay Findley, described a baby born when her parents went over the Oregon trail in 1847 as part of the Buell wagon train. "They reached the Platte some twenty miles below what is now Grand Island.One night, when encamped on that river, a terrific storm was experienced.Keen flashes of lightning rent the air, accompanied by peal after peal of reverberating report, and a torrent of rain fell. “Within a tent, during the storm, were nurses wading around a bedside placed upon chairs, ministering to the mother andnew-born babe. The little maid, whose birth occurred that night on the Platte, a real, though tender pioneer of Old Oregon Country, became, in the course of time, an early settler of eastern Washington Territory, and is, at the present time, an estimable resident in a thriving town of that state." There was a large group of Findleys traveling to Oregon in 1847, most of them not with the Buell train, but Josiah Osborn wrote in a letter in 1848 that he saw several of them over the course of a few days. So, even if they made campfire with different trains, they were probably fairly close to each other.
Does anybody know the name of the girl born in 1847 who moved to eastern Washington?
