Age 3

Many people started their 2,170-mile West trek to settle the land found by Louis and Clark. They used large-wheeled wagons to pack most of their belongings and were guided by trails that were made by the previous trappers and traders who walked the area. Over time the trail needed annual improvements to make the trip faster and safer. Most of Interstate 80 and 84 cover most of the ground that was the original trail.

Name Meaning

English and Scottish:1. status name, from Middle English yoman, yeman, used of an attendant of relatively high status in a noble household, ranking between a Sergeant and a Groom , or between a Squire and a Page . The word appears to derive from a compound of Old English geong ‘young’ + mann ‘man’. Later in the Middle English period it came to be used of a modest independent freeholder, and this latter sense may well lie behind some examples of the surname. 2. topographic name, an expanded form of Yeo .
