The traveled by wagon train with another missionary couple. It was a hard and long journey. At last, they finally arrived on the site that they had chosen. The Cayuse called the site Waiilatpu (Wy-ee-lat-poo), this means “ the place of rye grass”. The Whitmans kept the name for their mission.

  12. Life in Waiilatpu • Using their own strength and some hand tools, they built a house and some other buildings at Waiilatpu. They planted wheat, potatoes and, corn. They held church services several times a week. Marcus took care of sick people and Narcissa had a children's school. Life was very difficult for them and very lonely. Narcissa wrote a letter to her sister Jane, and brother, Edward on September 29, 1842. People then got upset with Dr. Whitman saying he only cured white children. This fight caused both Marcus and Narcissa to be killed.
