      THORNBEE [sic], Jane <1825>, age 16, Origin: Downham, England, Occupation Weaver

      Ship: Sheffield
      Date of Departure: 7 Feb 1841
      Port of Departure: Liverpool, England
      LDS Immigrants: 235
      Church Leader: Hiram Clark
      Date of Arrival: 30 Mar 1841
      Port of Arrival: New Orleans, Louisiana

      Notes: FOURTH COMPANY -- Sheffield, 235 souls. The following is culled from the History of Joseph Smith. Saturday, February 6th, 1841, a council meeting was held at Brother Richard Harrison's, Seventy-two Burlington Street, Liverpool, for the purpose of organizing a company of Saints going to New Orleans on the ship Sheffield. Captain Porter, Apostles Brigham Young, John Taylor and Willard Richards and other officers were present. Elder Hiram Clark was chosen president, and Thomas Walmsley, Miles Romney, Edward Martin, John Taylor, Francis Clark and John Riley, counselors to President Clark. Edward Martin was appointed clerk and historian of the company. President Clark and his counselors were blessed and set apart for their mission. The Sheffield sailed from Liverpool, bound for New Orleans, with two hundred and thirthy- five Saints on board, on Sunday the 7th ... ... After a passage of fifty-one days the company landed in New Orleans; three deaths and two births having occurred on the voyage. On arriving at New Orleans, Elder Clark made a contract with a steamer to carry the company to St. Louis for two dollars and fifty cents each, including baggage. From St. Louis to Nauvoo they secured a passage on the Goddess of Liberty for one dollar each. About thirty of the emigrants who had become disaffected through false reports, tarried at St. louis. The bulk of the company landed in Nauvoo, April 18th, 1841, about eleven o'clock in the evening. Notwithstanding the late hour, quite a number of the brethren stood on the shore to welcome these new arrivals from the old world."
