early writing

of several different instruments, he is most known as a piano and keyboard virtuoso. A formally trained musician, Gary began his musical endeavors early, writing music and performing live as a young teen. Gary moved to California in 1973 and toured with the final incarnation of the L.A. rock band Blues Image (of "Ride, Captain, Ride" fame). After several years, the rigors of life on the road and the constant stress of touring resulted in problems in his personal life. However, it was this very life crises that brought Gary to a spiritual awakening and with it the realization of his great need for a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. This awakening was so powerful that it not only came to encompass his private life but his musical career as well. He dedicated himself completely to God's call and became a "music evangelist." For a couple of years, he performed as an indie artist. He was born in on a cattle ranch near Kent, Kansas to John E. O'Sullivan and Josephine Kluh O'Sullivan on May 31, 1883.

Location scenes included street and buildings on Main Street in White Cloud, Kansas, viewed from a distance from both sides of the Missouri River, and Hays, Kansas and Saint Joseph, Missouri. Dating the stories In a first-season episode Adams says the war has been over for five years (suggesting the first season takes place in 1870, although, in "The Major Adams Story", part 1, it is clear that Adams had taken trains west in previous years, commencing "as soon as the war was over"). In season two, reference is made to the war ending six years earlier (1871) and to the presidential nomination of Ulysses S. Grant (1868), a neighbor of Adams before the war and eventually his commanding officer. In season three (in "The Vincent Eaglewood Story") Grant and Colfax are identified as the current President and VP, which dates it as Grant's first term (March 1869 to March 1873). "The Bernal Sierra Story" (first season) made extensive reference to the ongoing revolution in Mexico pitting Benito Juarez against Maximillian I of Mexico (aka Emperor Maximilian)--but that uprising ended decisively with Maximillian's capture and execution in 1867. "The Cathy Eckhardt Story" (fourth season, broadcast November 9, 1960) clearly shows the year is 1870, but in "The Charlene Brenton Story" (late third season, broadcast 8 June 1960) reference is made to Bill Hawks' having read the novel ''Ben-Hur'', which was not published until 1880. The First Transcontinental Railroad was completed in 1869, following approximately the same route as a wagon train from St. Joseph (St. Joseph, Missouri) to Sacramento. This would have made wagon trains obsolete by the time most episodes in the series take place; however, little reference is made to railroads in the West during the series. Youth Parley Pratt was born in Burlington, New York, the son of Jared Pratt (Canaan, New York, 25 November 1769 – Detroit, Michigan, 5 November 1839) and wife (m. 7 July 1799) Charity Dickinson (Bolton, New York, 24 February 1776 – St. Joseph, Missouri, 20 May 1849), a descendant of Anne Hutchinson. The stockyards were built around the facilities of the Central Overland California and Pikes Peak Express Company which had outfitted travelers on the Santa Fe Trail and Oregon Trail following the Kansas River.
