Elizabeth Davis

Nicknamed "Betsey." In 1847, Elizabeth was in the Garden Grove, Iowa Branch of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints with her son (Francis M.) and her daughter (Emeline). At the time of the 1850 federal census all three were in Decater, Iowa. None of them appear in the 1852 Iowa State census while all three are in Weber County in the 1856 Utah Territorial census. Francis and Emeline both crossed the plains with the Harry Walton/Garden Grove pioneer company of 1851; Elizabeth was almost certainly with them.
