    Anecdote
    • In hope of visiting his cousins, the Rulisons before returning
      to Parish , Charles was on a raft trip, which was difficult.
      When he reached St. Joseph, MO, he was very ill and had to
      enter the St. Joe's hospital operated by Dr. Thomas Mount.
      There he had a nurse, Mary Jane Mount (daughter of the doctor)
      and the two young people fell in love. We do not know how long
      Charles was in the hospital, but on June 26, 1866 they were
      married at St. Joes against the violent objection of the Mount
      family. She was disowned by the family for marrying a Damn
      Yankee and she never saw them again. On the Kansas side of the
      river was an almost continuous line of Indian tribes. the
      couple eventually reached Wyandot, Kansas, home of the Wyandot
      Indians, a village that was later to become Kansas City,
      Kansas. There their first child, Clara Alma was born March 16,
      1868.
      The family then traveled southwesterly to central Kansas where
      they hoped to farm and to obtain work as a builder. They found
      a place called Agnes City near Emporia and four more children
      were born: Charles E., George, Jan, Alice Fern and Janet Dove.
      One interesting episode on their travels was when the notorious
      female bandit Calamity Jane rode into camp one evening and
      wanted to spend the night. She was placed under heavy guard
      and the next morning a band of horsemen took her back along the
      trail for 50 miles and sent her along her way with a dire
      warning to keep going.
