Meet the Pioneers: Jameson, Mary and Craig

No comments

Three more pioneers journey west: Jameson Woodling (Allen Fitzpatrick), Mary (Taryn Darr) and Craig (Eli Lotz). Jameson Woodling is the husband of Cayla, until she frees herself from him. (Allen is pulling double duty, also portraying Craig’s Dad.) Mary is one of the ladies who comes to town after the miners have set up camp. (Taryn is also pulling double duty, starting out as Sarah Woodling, the second wife of Jameson Woodling.) Craig is a young man who travels west with his father, both hoping to make a new start for their family.
