Per Morris [1971:7]: "Charles Broach (1.) and his wife Polly settled after 1820 in Walton Co., Ga. But later, during the time of the California Gold Rush, he and his family left Walton Co. and headed for California in a train of 42 wagons. After six months travel they reached Arkansas where they decided to stop and settle at a spot near the present day towns of Fordyce and Kinsland, Arkansas.
     "Several years later their son James and little grandson both died of typhoid fever, and the widow, Mrs. James Broach, took a surviving son and three daughters back to live in Walton Co., Ga. She lived there with her father who was George Broach (3.), brother of Charles."6
