Transcript for Jacob Peart autobiographical sketch, circa 1913, 6-7

1847 we started for Winter Quarters but arrived too late to join the company starting for Utah.

We remained there until 1848 when we started for Utah in President Brigham Young’s company. Although I was only 13 years of age I drove three yoke of cattle across the plains arriving in Salt Lake City, Sept. 20th, 1848.
