They saw indians but no trouble came. When they arrived in Wallowa, they had only 75 cents. To earn money, they thrashed oats and sold them in Walla Walla, Washington. They homesteaded in Wallowa and got a few head of cattle, then later acquired a good herd of cattle and opened a store called the General Mercantile.
