Notes

Includes bibliographical references and wives' burial index.

"This is a compilation of the lives 150 wives of the men who served in the Mormon Battalion during the Mexican War conflict as shown in journals and histories from the respective families. The stories usually begin at the time of birth of the wives and ends at the time of their death.... "The stories follow the hardships and trials encountered by the families as they were driven from state to state.... Some of the stories reveal how the women survived on the prairies while their husbands were away. "The book also gives an account of the Mormon Battalion after they were mustered out of service in July of 1847, and the various ways in which they traveled to locate their families... The stories continue on by relating the events in their lives after the Mexican War..."Verso, Back Cover.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
