Records relating to wagon trains

Classification: Query
Surnames: Huffaker, Milburn
I am trying to find any newspaper or other records relating to wagon trains formed in 1852-1853. My ancestors Jacob Huffaker 1808-1867 along with several of his minor and aduly children and son in law David Milburn left Morgan County Ill. For Texas during this time period. From what I've read the huffakers were rather prominent and i thought their departure might merit mention in the local newspaper. If anyone has some idea which newspapers might have been published in that time period and locale and where i might access or contact someone for help it would be greatly appreciated.
