Bradfield, Joseph, Reminiscences. (Trail excerpt transcribed from "Pioneer History Collection" available at Pioneer Memorial Museum [Daughters of Utah Pioneers Museum], Salt Lake City, Utah. Some restrictions apply.)
We reached the New York harbor July 15, after spending two days there we proceeded by train to Laramie. Then started by team to Utah, in the John R. Murdock Co., stopping two days in green River[.] It was a long tiresom journey but we had many enjoyable times dancing and singing around the camp fire at night.
My companion Billy Williams and I walked from Bear River to Salt Lake City one day ahead of the company as I was very anxious to locate my brother who had sent us the money to come to this beautiful land.
