Elizabeth Seddon

She traveled to Utah with her father and sister.  She was not a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at the time.  Elizabeth sailed to America as a single woman with her father and sister  in 1856 on the ship Horizon, and they came to Utah in 1856 with the Edward Martin pioneer company.  Apparently, she returned to Nebraska and married William Showell there.  Three children were born to them in Nebraska before coming to Utah.
