_____________________
Note of interest: Horace' sister, Eliza, was married to Henry Harmon Spalding. Henry and Eliza's daughter was the 1st white child born west of the Rockies. Little Eliza grew up amongst the Nez Perce Indians and could speak their language well. She was taken to the Whitman Mission to get more "civilized" education. The very next day the Whitman Massacre took place. Little Eliza was used as an interpreter between the Indians and the Calvary when the Calvary went to rescue the hostages the Indians took during the Whitman Massacre.

Horace was at the Lapwai Mission in Idaho when the Whitman Massacre took place.
