I have a song wandering through my head tonight. It is The Wells Fargo Wagon song from the musical The Music Man. I was in this musical when I was in High School and talk about some of my memories in my post: The Music Man
What initially drew my eye was a Wells Fargo Stage Coach. I found out that there are a number of Wells Fargo museums across the country and some of the others also have stage coaches on display.
The wagon in The Music Man would probably have been an overland wagon that was used more for freight.
This display in the museum made me think of my 2nd great-great uncle L. L. White. He was a Wells Fargo Express agent and helped prevent a train robbery in Texas in 1898. I talked to the manager at the museum and he had heard of L. L. White. At one time they had a picture of him on display that was on loan from his family.
For more details about the train robbery and how I found out about it visit my post: The Great Mid-Texas Train Robbery
I am hoping to find out more about L. L. White and his career with Wells Fargo.
I may visit the museum again tomorrow when I go to pick up my passport.
