Footnote to death date in record states that it was reported to the High Council, March 7, 1847."

      Also stated in above record for Hyrum S. Turley son of Theodore Turley, "Hyrum S. Turley; age 4 mos., 24 days; son of Theodore and Ellen Turley; deceased April 29, 1847; disease croup; brithplace Winter Quarters; birthdate Dec. 5. 1846; grave no. 95; footnote states: in grave with 95."

      Also stated in record above for Princetta Turley daughter of Theodore Turley, "Princetta Turley; age 1 yr., 1 mo.; daughter of Theodore and Sarah E. Turley; deceased Sept. 2, 1847; disease fever; birthplace Nauvoo, Ill.; birthdate Aug. 2, 1845; grave no. 148." Transcriber's note: Princetta Turley was buried in grave 148 with her mother Sarah E.

      Transcriber's note: Francis was buried in grave 20 with Francis A. Daniels wife of Cyrus Daniel. Both Francis Daniels and Francis Turley were born in Birmingham, England perhaps they are mother and daughter, also in grave is Francis G. Daniels who apparently was a baby who died at birth. So there may be mother, daughter, and grand-daughter in the same grave.

      Name transcribed from Winter Quarters Wards Membership Lists 1846 - 1848. Taken from a variety of historical sources. They are not complete, and because of the difficulty reading handwriting, may not be entirely accurate. Most of the lists seem to be from the winter of 1846 - 47, but some are from later. In addition, people often moved to better housing, thus changing wards. Sources for these lists are: bishop's reports, high council meeting minutes, tithing records, and 'census' reports of widow, soldier's wives and other unassigned members of wards. The original records are available at the Historical Department, Archives Division, of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Salt Lake City Utah.
