Burgess, Mariah Pulsipher, [Autobiography], in Terry Lund and Nora Lund, comp., Pulsipher Family History Book , 45.
We enjoyed ourselves, although I was not able to leave my wagon much. We camped one night on a sand hill without feed and water. I was taken sick. As soon as daylight came we went about six miles, found water and feed and stopped. There my first son was born, after dinner we traveled on. I kept in bed about two weeks, then was able to get around. I felt able and willing to go through suffering to find a resting place where the Saints could worship the Lord with none to molest.
When we got to Salt Lake we camped out.
