Cragun Family
Tradition in the family of Jean (Cragun) Tombaugh, tells that our ancestor was originally of Scotland and the name was McCRAGUN. Also, that Caleb Cragun moved from England to Ireland where he married and had children, one of whom was a son PATRICK, who came to America about the time of the Revolutionary War.[1], [2]. So, right or wrong, we will begin with the Craguns of Scotland.

Daniel Mark Burbank, Jr.
Daniel Mark Burbank, Jr.
Daniel was born June 10 1846 in Farmington Iowa in a frontier home with scarcely the necessities of life. -

(After the death of the Prophet Joseph Smith and Hyrum Smith, there was a time of peace, but not for long. the mob soon began their plunder of homes, burning them, -killing the animals and all kinds of horrible crimes. Daniel Mark Burbank Senior says " I rode for some time under Colonel S. Markum on Bear River, Green Plains and also Cartage and Warsaw, and in our scouring of the country, we saw much destruction on homes, animals and crops. In this we received no redress from the governor nor from the president of the United States and found a home where best we could. We started in the wilderness amidst rain, snow, and much high water; and most excess exposure, leaving our farms, orchards, homes and Temple. Many of our people were very poor and destitute for the comforts of life, yet we must go on or be killed. So, trusting in God, we prayed often and after a while came to Farmington Iowa.")

Joseph William Rawlins - Poem by Virginia Hanson
Did you ever hear of the man they called Jode,
Who had a tough journey on Life's stony road?
Those with less grit would have died long ago,
But Job was a sissy, compared with this Jode.
