Eliza Pratt

Eliza sailed to America in 1861 with her husband and two children on the 1853 Falcon, had a baby in Missouri 24 August 1860, and was rebaptized in the LDS church in November 1861. Further research is needed to determine the name of the company she traveled with.  In January 1865 she was baptized into the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and moved to Arapahoe, Colorado, and then to Council Bluffs, Iowa in 1866.  Her birth and death dates are confirmed by the inscription on her gravestone.
