February 28th

On Sunday, February 28, Marcus and Narcissa and the Nez Perce boys were in Rushville, visiting his mother, Mrs. Calvin Loomis, and other relatives. Narcissa wrote, “I had made for me in Brother Augustus’ shoe store in Rushville, a pair of gentlemen’s shoes and from him we supplied ourselves with what shoes we wanted.” She apparently felt that no shoes normally worn by a woman would be suitable for the trip.

Traveling by sleigh, they left Rushville on Thursday, March 3, heading to Pittsburgh by way of Elmira, NY and Williamsport and Holidaysville, PA. Perhaps they took what is now route 14, a scenic, winding road, 72 miles to Williamsport
