Rebecca Herrod Beesley (1839 - 1909) Profile

Rebecca Herron Beesley

Came to Utah with her parents. Rebecca's obituaries confirm that the Beesley family, including Deborah Miller, reached Utah by August 1862. More research is needed to confirm the company with whom they traveled. 

Rebecca's autobiographical sketch found in her "Memories" on FamilySearch states, "We came to St. Joseph Missouri by railroad. At that place my Father bought his outfit to start across the plains 1000 miles. We started on that tedious journey with Ox teams on the 7th of June 1862 and arrived in Provo City Utah on the 28th of August of the same year almost three months travelling in wagons."

In her autobiographical sketch, she records her own name as "Rebecca Herron."
