[Hosea Stout Diary] Saturday July the 4th 1846. This morning I proceded on my journey slowly for my team was very weak and the weather hot & sultry. After traveling about six miles we came to another Creek at which there was a small grove.
This was called Cag-Creek [Keg Creek]. Here my oxen was about given out again.We turned here and rested and watered our cattle and remained untill five oclock and then started again in the cool of the day[.] We traveled about three miles and encamped in the prairie.There was a hard storm & rain to night but we did not get wet.
