Frontier and pioneer life
Found in 7 Collections and/or Records:
Sanford Fulton's papers consist of one booklet entitled "The Life of William Fulton," written by Sanford about his pioneer grandfather in 1922. It includes a list of descendants of William Fulton, and an introduction by Sandford's brother, Merritt Fulton.
This collection contains correspondence for the most part addressed to John Strange of Oneida, Eaton County, Michigan, and to his spouse Orinda (nee Sprague), from members of their families in Massachusetts and New York.
The letters are concerned with family matters -- births, deaths, and marriages -- and flavored with pious comments. Beginning in 1849, the correspondence includes much discussion of California and the Gold Rush, and of travel to the West.
