Kirkham/Culver Family Tree CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS RALL COMES HOME | Chris Rall put his tool chest, his fiddle, his Shakespeare and his Bible into a wagon, kissed his wife and children good-bye and took off for California with the forty-niners to gt rich. | For the first ten years of his wandering, Christopher Columbus Rall sent letters to his wife, Elizabeth (Kirkham) back in Iowa and admonished their children to obey and help her and repeated his promise to "come home when he had made his 'find' and could" Then the letters stopped. For nine more years Elizabeth waited, steadfast in her belief that he yet lived and would come home at last. | The Rall children, except for the youngest who was killed when a sand bank caved in on him when he was ten, were grown and married. After nineteen years, Chris Rall came home. He resumed his place as head of his house and with his hands, again began building houses and making coffins, providing for Elizabeth and their home. | Christopher Rall had stopped writing when word came to him that Elizabeth had taken the report that another man and he had been caught in the rapids and drown when rafting on a river and she in time had remarried. He had no wish to complicate her life with word that he escaped drowning. He headed north and in the eighteenth year of his being away, (he was in British Columbia), Christopher met a man from Iowa who knew Elizabeth and told him she had not remarried and as far as he knew, she was waiting for his return. Christopher's trip home took the best part of a year.
