Local woman recalls pioneer family’s travels to California

From page A4 | January 10, 2014 |

Lynne Gough of Sacramento will talk about her great-grandfather’s adventures on a wagon train from Pennsylvania to Yolo County at the Jan. 26 meeting of the Yolo County Historical Society. Her talk is titled “Yolo Pioneers On a Gold Rush Wagon Train.”

Gough was born in Woodland, and is among the fourth generation of the Morris family to call California their home. She is a descendant of two old Yolo County families, Morris and Eddy. Her great-granduncle Asa W. Morris was a renowned Holstein cattle breeder in the early 20th century and owner of the world-famous dairy cow, Tilly Alcartra.

Gough has always loved history. In 2008, she discovered the grave of a second great-granduncle at Mary’s Cemetery. This discovery led to a family diary and the story of the “Jefferson California Company” wagon train that came from Waynesburg, Greene County, Pennsylvania, to California for the Gold Rush.

After an unsuccessful two-year stint in the California gold mines, Morris settled in Yolo County. He became a successful farmer and paved the way for other family members to follow.

The society will meet at 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 26, at Mary’s Chapel on County Road 98 at the southwest corner of County Road 15. This event is free and is co-sponsored by the Mary’s Chapel Support Group. Refreshments will be served.
