A Famous Freighting Firm

In the years 1855-1861 this firm was a major factor in the settlement of the West. Using thousands of teams, and both wagons and stagecoaches, it hauled supplies and passengers to Army posts and settlements west of Fort Leavenworth. Members of the firm started the Leavenworth & Pike's Peak Express Company, which later became the Central Overland California & Pike's Peak Express, parent company of the celebrated Pony Express of 1860-1861.
