Her dad got the word that his grandfather had been killded in the war and he left his family in the hands of their housekeeper and her family to go aid his grandmother, whom was dying. But he never returned. The rance they lived on had been given to him because he supported the South and he and his lawyer partener were in business together, but he had no idea what his partener was trying to do.
When the REAL owner of the ranch returned from the war William Barnett was suprised to find someone else was living in his house. He stayed on for the time being and helped Hannah and the others run the farm and to try and keep the Indians from attacking.
