Adventurers, gold seekers, people seeking a fresh start, people running from debt or the law, second and third sons who wouldn't inherit, Mormons seeking to practice their religion without interference, the reasons for some will remain unknown.

Returning Confederate soldiers, who lost everything during the war, headed west in order to start a new life; former slaves went, too, in order to seek a new life as free men, and many other groups traveled west to seek fame and fortune, as the west had abundant quantities of minerals, including gold and silver.
