Lee, Primrose Shields, [Autobiographical sketch], in Pioneer Pathways [1998- ], 6:392.
In the early summer of 1852, our family started across the plains in Albert Merrill's company. Just after we had crossed the Missouri River (into Nebraska), Father [John] was run over by a big wagon, heavily laden. We expected his life to be crushed from him, but the elders administered to him, and he was made whole by the power of God and was able to walk most of the way to the Rockies.
We arrived in Salt Lake City on Saturday, October 12, 1852.
