Mary Tabitha York

Mary was included on the company roster found in the Journal History.  Her biographical sketch, written during her lifetime indicates that she drove an ox team all the way and part of the way drove five cows along with the oxen. Her mother died in Nauvoo and father never joined the Church so it seems she was traveling without family.
