In the Nineteenth Century, with the single thought of providing a better life for their families, husband and wife brought their families West to mine gold, silver and copper. At this time, The West was "anywhere west of the Great Lakes region. Colorado, for instance." Many sailed to New York, others to New Orleans, then up the Mississippi River to Missouri.
 
Unable to afford oxen, many Cornish immigrants pulled handcarts thousands of miles for months. The deformed hands of these men appeared as "eagle claws" upon their arrival.
 
Not all immigrants survived the trek.
