- Unsettled Homesteaders
The party reached the Dellmon Ranch later that evening. The ranch consisted of three large buildings that had a make shift wall connecting the three buildings and a large gate that roughly aligned with the compass directions. A stone brick house lied to the north with a thatch roof, a forge along the western side, a large barn to the south, and the gate to the east. It was apparent that many of the farmers had been busy digging ditches around walls as a means of slowing down any raiders from assaulting the hurriedly made compound.
