  • Notes 
    • Name transcribed from A "Grave" Experience at the Mormon Pioneer Winter Quarters Cemetery. By Carlyle B. Jensen and Gail Geo. Holmes, Published by Authors October 1999. Quoted from with permission of Gail Geo. Holmes. The record is a "List of the Deaths and Burials in the Camp of Israel at Cutler's Park, after Sept, 1846. Spellings, dates and etc. are as written in the original record - mistakes and all."

      Stated in record above Elizabeth Sprague daughter of Sarah Spears, "Elizabeth Sprague; age 21 days; da. of George and Sarah Spears; deceased Oct. 31, 1846; birthdate Oct. , 1846; grave no. 46."

      Stated in record above for George Spear(s) husband of Sarah N. Spears, "George Spear; age 47 yrs., 1 mo.; husband of Sarah N. Spears and son of Hirum and Mary Spears; deceased Nov. 12, 1846; disease chills and dysentery; birthplace Birkshire, Scotland; Oct ., 1799; grave 59"

      Note: "Stated by transcriber George's surname is given as Spear but his wife and parents are listed as Spears. I believe the s to be left out of George's name and so I added it." Terry Latey

      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.

      Note: Stated in record above; "5 in the family, widow"
