. . . we all crossed the plains together as one family in that same year . We came in Joseph Horne’s company, my husband driving the second team. They were church teams and he paid our fare for the trip. I believe there were fifty nine wagons in the company and at night we formed a ring or coral. I was sick nearly all the way across having mountain fever. We were organized into companies of ten with a captain over each company. We arrived in Salt Lake City September 13th, 1861.
