Isabella Quinn

The Quinn family initially traveled with the Willie Company as far as Florence, Nebraska, where they dropped out. Some went on with the Martin Handcart Company that same year, while others, including Isabella and her parents, remained in Florence until 1860, when they crossed the plains with the Joseph W. Young Freight Train.

The family sailed to America in 1856 on the ship Thornton.  Her given name is listed as "Isabella" on the ship manifest, and she was seven years old.

The inscription on her gravestone in Montana confirms her death date and shows her name as "Isabell Cammock."
