AMARIAH KALLOCH III - He was a scout in the Union Army during the Civil War, moved to Kansas, then established the Kalloch Stagecoach & Freight Lines from Kansas west and provided horses for the new Pony Express.  At the Cherokee Strip rush, over 50 of his wagons were used by homesteaders to stake their claims.  A ghost town near Caffeyville, Kansas, is named "Kalloch."  He later moved to the west coast, engaged in wharf work in San Francisco, then moved to Washington territory where he set about logging towering timber on his claim and cleared land for a farm.
