    Notes 
    • History of Jane Brown (I found this story on Ancestry.com about Jane)

      Jane Brown was born in St Michaels, Southampton, Hampshire, England on 9 Aug 1772.

      She married John Wild on 29 Oct 1795 in Owslebury, Hampshire, England.

      When the Mormon missionaries proselyted in her area of southern England, she accepted the gospel they taught and was the first in her family to be baptized. Her husband had already passed away by this time.

      Emigration to America, "the literal gathering of Israel", was a commandment of God given to the British Saints by President Brigham Young. In obedience to this command, Jane Brown, her son Henry Brown Wild and his family, and her daughter Mary Wild Snelgrove left Hampshire, England and landed in America in 1851.

      The rigors of the sea voyage and the malarial fevers of the Mississippi River, were too taxing for Jane who was then 76 years old, and she died in Jackson County, Missouri, the site from which the body of the church she had recently joined, had been expelled some 13 years earlier.

      Jane Brown Wild was a woman of uncommon faith demonstrated by her courage in leaving her native England to commence upon so long and harsh a journey so late in her life to gather, as God had commanded, with the body of the Saints high in the Rocky Mountains of Utah.

      After burying their mother, Henry Brown Wild and his family, and his sister Mary Wild continued their travels. After crossing the plains, they arrived in Salt Lake City in 1852.
