      Members of Amos Kendall's family later moved to Little Lake, now called Willits [Mendocino County], California. They were involved in the biggest gunfight in the West. In 1867, Little Lake was split even after the Civil War, then called the War Between the States, between Southern and Northern sympathizers. The Frosts were the pro-South faction and the Coates clan from Wisconsin, strongly pro-North. When the gunfight between the two families ended-it lasted 15 seconds-six people were shot dead: the Frosts lost Elisha, and the Coates lost Joseph, Wesley, Abraham, Thomas and Henry. [I've just returned from Willits and the Little Lake Cemetery, and, indeed Elisha Frost is buried there, along with the Coates. But I'm having trouble with the name, Elisha, and the other Frosts buried there: Elijah, for instance-neither name appears anywhere else in my line, but both names appear in other lines. Perhaps, then, this sad event belongs to another Frost family. Obviously, I need to do more research].
