      NAUVOO RECORDS:
      Nauvoo Temple Endowment Register, p 183
      70 's Record, p 426
      Members, LDS, 1830-1848, by Susan Easton Black, Vol 42, pp 326 - 328

      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 for Agnes Swap daughter of Wm., "Agnes Swap; age 3 mos; da. of Wm. and Elizabeth Swap; deceased Sept. 16, 1846; disease chills and fever; birthplace Pottawatomie Nation; birthdate June 16, 1846; grave number 4"

      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; "2 in the family, labourer"
