WILLIAM HARRISON BARGER- W-Ferraby Frost 6/15/1837 in Fairfield. He was one of the young men who
enlisted in the Mormon Battalion and marched from Council Bluffs to San Diego, CA. Following his discharge on
7/16/1847, he traveled to Sutter's Mill in Northern California. William was at the mill the day gold was discovered
and it has been reported that he was the first man shown the precious metal by the finder. In 1848, he migrated to
Fremont County to live with his family. On 7/23/1858 he was returning from the funeral of his friend and school
teacher neighbor Vince Pease (who had been hit by lightning) when he accidentally fell off the foot-log bridge
spanning Walnut Creek. Although the water was only 3-4 rods wide, his wet clothes and the swift current kept him
from keeping his head above water and he died. At the time he had eight children; the ninth-his daughter Charlotte
was born the following December. He was buried in Chambers Cemetery.
