Abstract:

Stephen Allen Bemis (1828-1919) left Massachusetts for Chicago, Illinois, in 1846 and spent the years 1852-1854 and 1860-1867 in California. Recollections of a long and somewhat uneventful life (1932) are Bemis's reminiscences of his 1852 trip to California and Panama crossing but shed little light on his first stay in the West. He provides more details of his second California residence: an overland crossing driving a herd of livestock in 1860, reunion with his wife and children in San Francisco, where he tried a variety of businesses, and his 1867 removal to St. Louis.
