Emeline Parker

Although a non-contemporary typescript list in Journal History (Supp. after 31 Dec. 1851, 6A) lists the Kesler family as coming in the 1851 John Brown company, Kesler's autobiography states that he was a captain of the 2nd Ten in Orson Pratt's company. Pratt was a nominal leader in the Cummings company so the Kesler family must have traveled in the Cummings company, not the Brown company.

Her birth date is verified by her obituary, and also confirmed by  the inscription on her gravestone, which shows her name as "Emeline Parker Kesler."
