Cyrus was about four years old, his sisters, Emma and
Hettie had been left alone while their father went
into town. During the day, they had heard about
Indians being in the area and without their father,
they took the scare seriously and hid out in the
pasture. Deciding that they could make it to their
closest relative but knowing they couldn't carry
Cyrus, they found a scoop shovel and had him get on it
as they dragged it 5 miles across the prairie to their
Uncle George Craig, in the dark. Of course, there were
never any Indians."
