Mendenhall, Thomas Lovell, Thomas Lovell Mendenhall , [5-6].
When we arrived at Florence, on the bank of the Missouri river, the immigrants were there. Our train of fifty wagons was loaded with 500 immigrants, flour, bacon, and provisions for our company. My wagon was loaded with bacon, which was used when we reached Laramie, Wyoming. Here I was loaded with buffalo robes, which after a few days, were distributed among our company for their use. Then Abraham Taylor and family and their belongings were loaded into my wagon and I brought them to Springville, Utah, arriving in October, 1862.
