Jensen, Ole Andersen, Reminiscences and diary, 1863-1920, 2.
Some thought they had too big a load, and many valuable things were unloaded and left there on the plains. One day in August our oxen took fright and ran away; three people were killed by them and one wagon was broken. Two men were burried in one grave, and I helped to bury them. There were no coffins but they were dressed and burried neatly. By this time we were good teamsters, and after this we had good success.
We were six weeks crossing the Atlantic Ocean. We landed in Salt Lake City 12 September 1863, and heard Brother Brigham Young preach and shook hands with him . . .
