Transcript for "Pioneer Sketch. Mr. and Mrs. George Sant," The Journal, 26 February 1927, p. 11

We took a steamboat for St. Louis, where we arrived January 22.  We stayed in St. Louis until May 10, when we took a boat up the Missouri river for Mormon grove, near Atchinson [Atchison], Kansas.  There we secured teams and wagons for the long journey across the plains.  I drove four yoke of cattle for Peter Burgess.  John Hindley was our captain.  We left Mormon Grove about June 10th.  There were 46 wagons and 200 Saints.  We reached Salt Lake September 3rd.
