Sorry, Ray. I was a bit preoccupied for a day or two.

I looked up one of the families, and they came were attached to Amasa M. Lyman's company at Winter Quarters which wasn't a handcart company.

But another family was in the ill-fated James Willie Company. That one must be where the family legends come from.

I can't see anything on the others, tho they were mostly English immigrants who ended up in Utah somehow. :) And all in the mid 1800's.

It's astonishing how much of my family history I'm locating on the web. I surely can find a scrap or two on the others.

I did some geneology a while back, and it was great fun. I ought to get into it again. Let's see. I suppose I could belong to the Mayflower Society, if they take offspring of plural marriage. And best of all to me, one of my ancestors traced back to Llewelyn the Great of Wales, who is not only one of my favorite historic figures, but it means I've a teensy bit of Welsh blood in me.

The other family book I found seems to be of my father's family - an autobiographical account of my grandfather's sister in law. It's pretty interesting as well.

What a fun walk down my ancestral road!
