Garner, Ann Eliza Coffin, Autobiographical sketch.
When the time came for us to leave Council Bluffs we did so & journeyed on, walking most of the way. In crossing the Platt[e] River my brother Nathan was washed down stream. My mother stood out on the wagon tongue & threw the whip to him to catch, he missed it the first time[.] she threw it again & he caught it[.] She succeeded in pulling him to her by guiding the oxen down stream & reaching out and getting a hold of his hand & brought him to safety. She put him on the upperside of the oxen again & by holding to them & with her assistance he succeeded in driving them across the stream[.] We came to Utah 1 Oct. 1852 in Harris 10 company[,] Cutlers Co of 50[.] Settled in Ogden in 1852.
