Lucy Ann Henderson was born 28 Feb 1835 in Missouri. She was the first of ten children born to Robert McNeese Henderson and Rhoda Carpenter Holeman Henderson. Lucy was 11 in 1846 when her parents started out from Missoui to cross the plains to Oregon. She describes problems on the trail: torrential rains, heavy winds blew the tents over, stampeding oxen, Indians stealing hot bread off the campfire and her mother hoping "it burned him well." At one point , she watched the Indians doing their war dance and was frightened by their actions and nakedness. She also tells of how her little sister drank a bottle of "laudanum" (opium in alcohol) and died before they realized what had happened. She was buried by the trail. Three days later another sister, Olive, was born. (Olive became Mrs. Edward Failing of Portland.)At Fort Hall, the wagon train was met by Jesse Applegate who convinced them to take his new southern route. After surviving the trip through southern Oregon, they finally arrived in the Willamette valley at Christmas time where they stayed with an uncle until spring, when they moved to Oregon City. This is where Lucy met Matthew Paul Deady. They married 24 Jun 1852, Lucy was 17 years of age. To this union four children were born; Edward, Henderson, Paul and Mary. Lucy lived to be 88 years of age. She died 27 August 1923 in Portland, Oregon.
