We started across the plains 2 July 1861 in Captain Joseph Young’s Company. We all walked to keep up with the oxen. I had a baby to carry. We used buffalo chips when there was no wood. Our provisions were given out once a week, which was flour, bacon, died apples, tea and sugar.
We arrived in the Salt Lake Valley 20 Sep 1861.
