Sarah Barton Murphy was determined to follow her late husband's wishes and with the help of her sons and step-son, she took all her belongings on a flat-bottom boat, went down the Holston River to the Ohio River and up the Mississippi to arrive in Ste. Genevieve along the river in 1802. Her sons David & Richard & stepson William had already set up the settlement arriving in 1800. . . .
