From John Bushman’s Journal:

“On 14 October [1884] John took part of his children and some melons and went up the road about four miles to meet his older brother Jacob Bushman and family who were moving to Arizona. The brothers were overjoyed to see each other and all enjoyed the melons. Included in Jacob’s party were the families of H. Wilcox and John Sabey. John showed the visitors around for two days and let them have some corn and molasses, after which they went to Snowflake and later to St. Johns to locate.”
