Transcript for Haderlie, Charles Henry, Autobiographical sketch, [ca. 1932], 1
With four head of mules we left for the overland journey July 15, 1866, everything went well without any serious mishaps except while crossing the Platte River in Neb., one of the mules laid down in the water which was over three feet deep and it took considerable time to get him on his feet again. Proceeding on, our trip, my little Sister
Emily, <Anna> took seriously ill of fever and ague and died somewhere in the neighborhood of Evingston, [Evanston] Wyoming. A little casket was made out of a mess-box of a wagon and she was laid away in a lonely grave.
We arrived in Salt Lake City, Sept. 16, 1866.
