An 1884 Tennessee Emigrant in Salt Lake City.

I’ve puzzled over this for a couple of days, wondering if there are any clues in John Morgan’s journal about the November 13, 1884 emigrants Bruce wrote about here. Perhaps these entries hold a clue about one Tennessee emigrant.

November 17
John Morgan visited several schools throughout the day, … Returned home about 3:30 p.m. Storming and raining during the entire day. A number of Elders from the mission and some going to the mission called to see me. Also sister Pheobe Church from Tenn.

November 18
Went up to the Historians Office and set brother W. C. Snow apart for a mission to the southern states, and ordained him an Seventy …

November 19
Wrote brother [B. H.] Roberts and received a letter from him. Sent check to him for Sister Church’s baggage.

My recent post missed this interesting note.

  1. Pheobe was from Shady Grove, TN. I've read her name in passing in a few places. Her family was large and very interesting. Some went to Utah, others stayed in Tennessee. I didn't know she went to Utah. Sounds like it's time to research more about Pheobe herself.
