      This is a trail excerpt written by Margaret Salmon the 10 year old:

      Mormon Pioneer Overland Travel, 1847?1868

      Read Trail Excerpt:

      Arriving at Omaha, we camped at Fort Benton, awaiting Captain Mumford and Captain Holman, who were to bring the wagons to take us to Utah. Mother walked nearly all the way as father was sick most of the time and had to ride[.] Mother helped to care for many of the sick on the vessel and on the plains. There was much sickness all the way to Zion. Oh! what a joy when Robert Salmon, father's brother[,] met us at the head of Echo Canyon and conveyed us to our new home, a two room log house, across the Weber River, where now the Echo Dam is located. It was now late in September.
