CHAPTER X

Hyatt7, Early Pioneer
of Ohio and Illinois

MADONNA OF THE TRAIL

This memorial is a fitting tribute to the thousands of pioneer mothers of the covered wagon days who did much to build America. Betsy Hazard Bunn was one of those honored mothers. She walked and carried her infant son, William Benton Bunn, Sr., many weary miles on the four hundred mile family emigration from east central Ohio to east southeast Illinois. This was necessary to protect the life of her babe. Emigrant caravans enroot during droughty periods stirred up terrific clouds of dust.
