Note*On 06 October, 1875, Charles married Lulu Belle Dewing in Egan, MoodyCounty, South Dakota. They moved to Eau Claire, Eau Claire County,Wisconsin, where Lulu Amanda was born on the 12the of August, 1877. In 1878 they moved to Dakota Territory near Egan, where Charle's parentshad filed on land by 'Squatters Right.' Charles also filed on land and asod house was erected on the rolling prairie. Belle twisted tall prairiegrass to use for fuel along with cow chips. Charles freighted fromFlandreau, Moody County and Egan, Moody County. Here, two children wereborn, Lana, 09, July, 1879 and Victor Mahon, 01, June, 1881. Their neighbors, Mr. and Mrs. Louis M. Hulett and family decided to gowest with California as their destination .... However, the country westof the Black Hills proved very favorable after a three hundred and fiftymile journey. With winter soon to be upon them, they decided to settleon what was later named Hulett Creek, northwest of the Litter MissouriButtes in northwest Wyoming Territory. They enlarged a trappers dugoutin which they spent the winter. The next spring they moved to Black TailCreek, the first family to settle in the area. Huletts wrote to the Frenches about the wonderful opportunities here, andencouraged them to come where there was plenty of land for farming, goodstreams, plenty of timber for building and firewood, wild game and furbearing animals. In June, 1883 the Frenches, accompanied by Charlie Pettit, an elderlyone-armed man, and twenty-seven year old Charles Dunlap, started forWyoming in a covered wagon containing a large wall tent, cook stove, andother belongings, pulled by a span of large mules. Twice theyencountered Indians with whom they shared their food and were left totravel on. They arrived at the Huletts on the 9th of June, 1883. Alongthe way they had met the Dae Derrickson and George Richards families,also going to the Black Hills. The tent served as their home while the men erected a log house near thepresent town of Hulett, Crook County, Wyoming. The five large logs foreach side were rolled up with the mules, smaller logs were split for theroof, the covered with hay. A half window and lumber were purchased inSpearfish, South Dakota for one dollar and fifty cents. Wooden hingeswere made for the door. The next spring French, Pettit, and Dunlap returned to the DakotaTerritory never to head west again, taking the wagon, mules and tent.This left Mrs. French and the three children with only an old white horsebought from the 'D' cattle ranch for ten dollars. With a garden and meatsupplied by the cowboys and others, the family managed very well. Mrs.French also made gloves from tanned skins which she sold to the cowboysfor one dollar a pair. The following year the concern for a school resulted in a meeting withWilliam Draper of Sundance. He had been appointed to see about schoolinterests in what later became Crook County. The interview provedsatisfactory and they allowed five dollars for a schoolhouse and fiftydollars for a period of six months for a teacher. Mrs. French consentedto teach, however, she was required to take an examination before thenearest County Superintendent of Schools in Deadwood Dakota Territory.The journey was made on horseback. The papers were forwarded to theSuperintendent of Schools in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Lulu Belle (Dewing)French became the first school teacher in the Hulett, Wyoming area. Mr. Hulett, with the help of cowboys, built a log Schoolhouse withbenches and a table. Pupils were Mattie, Tom and Morgan Hulett, Lulu andLana French and Billie St. John, sixteen year old who came from Texaswith a trail herd and was staying at the 'D' winter camp in Barlow Canyon.

Note*Lana (French) Colvin, the daughter of Lulu Belle (Dewing) and Charles W.French, was born 8 July, 1879 at Egan, Moody County, Dakota Territory. She had an older sister, Lulu, and a younger brother, Victor. The family lived on the prairie near Egan for about four years. During this time the mother and children were alone much of the time. About the only visitors were Indians who would stop by expecting a meal even though there was little to eat. However, before long they would be back with fresh game for their hostess. Prairie fires were a terror for settlers. One time a fire headed for the house where the Frenches lived. The mother took the children and wrapped them all in wet blankets and laid down directly in front of the flames.The fire quickly went over them without doing any harm to them. In 1883 the French family moved to Wyoming Territory by covered wagon and mule team. They settled near their former neighbors, Mr. and Mrs. L.M. Hulett, who had come to Wyoming in 1880 from Egan, Dakota Territory. Incidents of the journey as remembered by a little girl - The family had camped near a creek one evening with water only in the holes and Lana and Lulu went to wash their hands and faces in a nearby hole. Lana started to slip into the water, she grabbed onto Lulu and both girls fell into the water. Lana managed to get out and ran to the wagon all wet. Fortunately Lulu was rescued and all ended well. Another incident happened when the wagon tipped over going up a steep bank after crossing the belle Fourche River. A pail fell over Lana’s head and she was almost smothered before it was removed. Living in a tent, then a log house was different then living in a sod house in Dakota. Dirt didn't’t keep falling into everything. Other settlers soon began to arrive with large herds of cattle and, of course, cowboys. Entertainment consisted primarily of the Saturday night square dances. Many rode twenty to thirty miles on horseback and stayed all night. There were very few young ladies and many cowboys so the ladies did not lack escorts. The gentlemen furnished the saddle horses. The ladies wore long divided riding skirts and rode side saddle. Some of the settlers who were arriving were J.C. Ryan, Leander Ripley, Moore, Storms, Cunningham, and George and Ed Barnard. Ed later was shot by a 'D' ranch cowboy. On 9 April, 1899, Lana and Ben P. Colvin were married at his homestead in Red Canyon by the Reverend J.S.F. Wood. Those attending the wedding were her mother and stepfather, Mr. and Mrs. Dan Ruland, and their son Dillon, Victor French, Ernest and Walt Willson, Mrs. Ella Pollock and Mrs. Sanderson of Deadwood, South Dakota. Lana Colvin became a charter member of the Beaver Creek Homemakers Club in July 1935 with eighteen members. Lana was always willing to lend her services to either relatives or neighbors in case of sickness or whenever help in any way was needed. She spent her life helping others. At the present time, 1978, Lana is living in the Dorsett Home in Spearfish, South Dakota. She will celebrate her ninety-ninth birthday this summer (1981). More on the life of Ben and Lana Colvin can be found in the history of Ben Pollock Colvin. Ben and Lana were parents of two daughters, Marjorie Ann, born 24 December, 1903, and Mildred, born 24 October, 1905.

Note*Victor Mahon French was born at Egan, South Dakota on the 1st of June,1881 to Charles Worthington and Lulu Belle (nee Dewing) French. He was third born and joined two sisters, Lulu Amanda and Lana. In early 1883,the family loaded their covered wagon, and headed west, for the Black Hills. Some very dear friends of theirs, the Hulett family, from Egan,had already decided to settle in the Black Hills, along the Belle Fourcheriver, and had written the French family to see if they would not jointhem. The covered wagon was pulled by two mules, named Bueguard andBonaparte. It took the family six weeks to make the journey. In July,1883, the French family set up their tent in the Hulett’s yard, and livedin it until their log cabin was built, nestled in the trees at the edgeof what now is Hulett. Mr. French set out in search of new frontiers,and the last that was heard of him, he was a guide in NorthernMinnesota. The family never knew what happened to him. Mrs. French rodehorseback to Deadwood, South Dakota, to take an examination, so that shecould teach school, and she became the first teacher in Crook County, in1884. She had to take the children to school with her, and they wouldride one horse, one child in front of her and two behind. Victor Frenchgrew up and attended school in the Hulett area. He was a sixteen yearold boy when he started as a cowboy. He rode for the 3V and the Doutfits, as well as other ranches in the area. He attended businesscollege in Grand Island, Nebraska. French homesteaded in Red Canyon,and in 1907 was married to Grace Coffey. They spent years on the ranch,and some time in Seattle, Washington before moving to Alva to make theirhome. They had three children, Russell, Celia (Mrs. Lee Howard), andGeraldine (Mrs. Willie Beard). Grace French passed away in 1917. In1921, Vic was married to Delia Foley, in Belle Fourche, South Dakota.She was the daughter of Morris and Jane Foley. Her parents had bothpassed away when she was young, and she was staying with the John Mahoneyfamily near Alva. Mr and Mrs. French continued to make their home inAlva, Wyoming, and two children were born to them, Eleanor (Mrs. RayEgan) and Jean (Mrs. Ted Rounds). The Frenches were very active in thecommunity, and were always ready to lend a helping hand. Many timesneighbors would call on Vic to help with veterinary problems, when theyhad sick or injured livestock, and he was always glad to help build thelittle community church at Alva. He was foreman on the construction ofthe Forest Service road into the Bear Lodge from the Gordon ranch, andhorse-drawn equipment was used to build the road. For many years, Mrs.French had the telephone exchange in their home and many people wereserved by this, as it was the only telephone in the area, and messageswere delivered this way. The Frenches farmed and ranched at Alva, usingthe brand IV on their horses and cattle. Mr. French passed away inOctober, 1967, in Rapid City, South Dakota. He had been active on theranch right up until the time of his death. Mrs. French passed away inSeptember, 1973, in Cheyenne, Wyoming, where she had been hospitalized.
