  • I agree, and I believe the only one that I have read about a SE Missouri group make a trip to California during the big gold rush.

  • It's the only instance I know of that involved a local group going West to try its luck in the gold fields. A quick search of our files shows that John G. Juden left this county in 1849 and spent six years in California looking for gold. He, too, returned to this area and died in the county in 1912.
