John and Jane Smith Tidwell were the "Pioneers of the Month" in March of 2009. The link can be found below. However, in searching Seely Family History by Montell and Kathryn Seely I discovered a more detailed account of the overland trip to the west, where John Tidwell was Captain. The account is part of the Sarah Seely Tidwell history. Sarah Seely married Jefferson Tidwell, a son of John and Jane Tidwell.
