birth of their only child, William Washington Bloyd.  William Riggin
Bloyd later married Lydia Thurber, daughter of James Thurber of Hancock
County.  Five children were born of this marriage, then Lydia Thurber
Bloyd also died.
After the death of his second wife, William Riggin Bloyd crossed the
plains to California in 1852, in company with his brother Benjamin Bloyd
and nephew Frank Bloyd.  They went to Siskiyou County, which is about 20
miles south of the Oregon line.  There they engaged in the business of
preparing and selling mining and building timbers.
In 1855 they returned to their old home in Illinois via the Isthmus of
Panama and New York.  William Riggins Bloyd purchased 320 acres of land
near Centerville, Iowa.  A year later he sold the land and returned to
Illinois and purchased 280 acres a short distance south of Tennessee, in
McDonough County, from a man named Mourning.  About 1860 he sold this
land, as he was then planning on another trip to California.
The Bloyd Immigrant Train
The lure of the West always had a strong appeal for William R., and in
1861, he organized a company to cross the plains to California.  His
previous experience, combined with his natural leadership, made him a
competent commander.  The principal members of the party were the four
children of Levi and Barbara Bloyd who had come up with their parents
from Kentucky to Illinois thirty years before.  On this trip William R.
took his orphan children along. 
Just as soon as it was safe to travel, those members of the party who
started from Illinois gathered at the home of Joseph and Nancy Foster
Bloyd Goodell. Their home was at the old Abijah Tyrrell mill site on the
east branch of Crooked Creek.  Nancy had married Abijah Tyrrell and they
had four children, after which she was left a widow.  She then married
Joseph Goodell.  Also in the party was William Riggin Bloyd's sister,
Charity Winn Bloyd.  She had married her cousin, Emerson Bloyd, in
Hancock County, Illinois.  They had six children, three of whom lived to
be grown.
The party drove as far as Centerville, Iowa, where William Riggin and
his son William Washington Bloyd  and family joined them.
Continuing their westward journey about one day's travel, the company
was increased by three families of the Gumms, who had come up from
Missouri by previous arrangement.  The Bloyds, Gumms, and McCubbins were
old friends from Kentucky.(If you recall, Thomas and David McCubbin each
married Gumm sisters.)

Now that the caravan was complete, it contained about 35 persons:
William Riggin Bloyd, who was the captain of the company.

Sharon Ray, who had been an employee of William Riggin Bloyd in Illinois.

Only three men in this train had crossed the plain once before:
William Riggin Bloyd, Benjamin Bloyd, and Frank Bloyd.  Benjamin Bloyd,
brother of William Riggin Bloyd, was going to California for his health.  He
left his family in Illinois and returned after two years, fully restored.


Articles of equipment on this trip included the following items: 
William R. Bloyd had two wagons and eight yoke of oxen.
Emerson Bloyd had one wagon and four yoke of oxen.
Joseph Goodell had one wagon and four yoke of oxen.
Nathaniel Thurber had one wagon and four yoke of oxen.
Gilber Tyrrell had one wagon and two yoke of oxen.
Adam Barnes had one wagon and one yoke of oxen.  Hitched in with his
team was a yoke of cows that belonged to William Riggin Bloyd.
James Gumm had one wagon and one team of mules.
Hardon Gumm had one wagon and one team of horses.
Sharon Ray drove one of William Riggin Bloyd's teams of oxen.
Benjamin Bloyd had two fine horses.
There were nine head of loose stock.

Joining Forces

The Bloyd train traveled as a unit until they got well out on the
plains where they joined another small wagon train that was under the
direction of Captain Gillis.
On one occasion, a band of Indians stole about a dozen of their horses,
including the two fine horses that belonged to Benjamin Bloyd.  As soon
as the stock was missed, a detachment of men went in hot pursuit.  They
soon overtook the Indians.  As the stock they had stolen were all slow
moving, the Indians had to abandon their loot in order to make good
their own escape.
When this augmented train neared the Rocky Mountains, they felt they
would be safer with more men for defense, and they joined with a larger
train, making a combined train of about two hundred wagons.  This long
train remained as a unit until they got well into Nevada.  There the
combined trains with which the Bloyd train had first united branched off
and went north, and passing through the Honey Lake Valley, camped at
Susanville, California. 
At Susanville, the two small groups divided and the Bloyd section drove
over the mountains to McCloud River, and from there to Red Bluff, Tehama
County, their destination.  It was now September, 1861, and the train
had been on the road nearly six months.

I have been trying to straighten out a couple of loose ends, one of them John Bloyd (born 1803 in Green County, KY) who married Devotion____ , children's names included Rhoda and Emberson. To me this would suggest that he is a descendant of John Bloyd Sr. However, he can't be John Bloyd Jr. because he has different spouses and children... So, I thought, thought I, what if this marriage I have been attributing to John Bloyd Jr. to Matilda ______ (before 1810) had offspring, among them John III, also maybe the James and Levy? (about 1810, no later than 1821).

Also then, we have been told that Emberson Bloyd (b 1823) , who married Charity Winn Bloyd, daughter of Levi Bloyd, was her cousin; in fact that her father and his father were brothers. That means Emberson's father was either John Sr. or Eli.   Lo and behold, my stray John Bloyd has named his children Emberson, Rhoda and Elijah (also Alfred..). Most of those names are definitely "our line." So perhaps he fits on the family tree with John Jr. as his father, though how he got born in Indiana is a big
question mark to me. I will follow up on the Indiana census to see what Bloyds we have there.
Anyway, just speculation...

Leander B. Bloyd Obituary
     Walla Walla, Washington Bulletin 8/26/1916

     Headline: L. B. Bloyd Killed in Automobile Accident
     Prominent Columbia County Farmer Crushed When Car Crashed Over Cliff.
     Was Only Occupant of Auto Accident Yesterday Ten Miles From Prescott.

     Leander B. Bloyd, wealthy Columbia County farmer and veteran of the Civil War, went to his death yesterday morning when the automobile in which he was driving backed over a cliff on the main road about 10 miles northeast of Prescott, near the Columbia County line. The car turned over four times  during the descent, crashing downwards for a distance of 150 feet. Mr. Bloyd, the only occupant of the machine, was killed instantly.

     The accident occurred at about 6:30 o'clock yesterday morning. Mr. Bloyd left his home about nine miles northeast of Prescott at 6 o'clock to visita neighbor. He urged his wife to accompany him, but she decided to  remain at home.  The car, a new Overland, had been purchased by Mr. Bloyd this summer, and he was inexperienced at driving.  Yesterday is said to have been the first time he had it out alone.

     The hill where the tragedy occurred is about a mile from the Bloyd home,and it is thought the accident happened by Mr. Bloyd throwing the car into reverse when about halfway up the hill, instead of putting it into low as he  intended. Responding to the gear, the car jumped backwards over the  cliff before the driver had time to get it under control. When examined later, the machine was found in reverse gear with the emergency brake set.

     At about 7:30 a visitor from the ranch which Mr. Bloyd had gone to visit stopped in at the Bloyd residence and when questioned declared Mr. Bloyd had not arrived when he had left and that he had not seen him on the road.

     Mrs. Bloyd, becoming anxious, made telephone inquiries at the farm houses along the road. No one living past the hill had seen him. Deciding that her husband had had trouble on the hill, which is about a mile from the house, Mrs. Bloyd set out, accompanied by a neighbor. When she neared the  hill she saw the machine at the bottom of the canyon.  She was the first to reach the scene of the accident, and  found her husband dead beneath the machine, crushed to his death. He had been killed instantly.

     Coroner J. W. Cookerly was summoned and arrived on the scene within a short time. He found that the accident  had happened a mile inside the Collumbia County line, but upon a telephone order from the Columbia County  prosecuting  attorney, he took charge of the body anyway, bringing it to this city.

     The deceased was one of the wealthiest and best known farmers in Columbia County. He was born in the Middle West 66 years ago, and crossed the Plains with his parents at eleven years of age settling in California. When the Civil War broke out, he enlisted with the northern forces at Vancouver, Wash., and served throughout the conflict. He has been an active member of the G.A.R. during late years.

     Eighteen years ago, he came north with his family, locating in the Walla Walla valley. For the past 14 years he had lived continually on his farm ten miles northeast of Prescott. The extent of his farming operations is shown by the fact that on Saturday he disposed of 30,000 bushels of wheat,a portion of his total holdings, at $1.20 per bushel.
     Besides his wife, he leaves three daughters, Mrs. A.B. Ronderma , Mrs. O.M. Mall, and Mrs. F. C. Fender, all  residing near Prescott.

     The body has been removed to the Cookerly and Cantonwine chapel, and the funeral will be held from there tomorrow afternoon, the exact hour to be announced later.

     Note from the transcriber: Leander Bloyd was the son of William Riggen Bloyd and Lydia Thurber. He was born      March 08, 1851 and died August 25,1916.

It's at the Webster Cemetery, Webster, Hancock County, IL.  I believe Sandi and I had found this at the Hancock Co. Historical Society.  I wonder if he could have been the son of Emerson (Emberson) and Charity Bloyd?
