Street, Ann Kay, Autobiographical sketch, 1.
My uncle John Howarth lost his pocket book before we started on the plains. My uncle sold his violin and other things to buy food. We crossed the plains with ox teams, our Captains name was Thompson. There were 15 people for our wagon, me being the youngest I got to ride all the way. We were 9 weeks and 2 days crossing the plains. When we got in Echo Canyon, John Crook, Noah Mayoh and George M. Giles met us and took us to Heber City.
