Title Band of Accomplishment
Description Toquerville. The second day we pushed and pulled up the Black Ridge. It was very steep I The journey home was made in six days. Our goal had been accomplished. We twisted our gold bands round and round on the third finger of our left hands to remind us of that. We were very happy to see our families again, especially to be with them at Christmastime. Now life began in earnest. Church Chronology, by Andrew Jenson. List of children and birthdates, born during polygamy to six wives, found in the History of Fredrick Walter Cox and His Family. All information related to horses and wagons given by Edgar Merriam of Manti. "Women's Diaries of the Westward Journey," by Lillian Schlissel, pages 98-99. Trip to St. George, the people involved, daily travel schedule, and other interesting information given by Charles Adelbert Cox, one of the brothers married on Wednesday, December 1, 1880. He wrote the account on a brown paper sack when he was 81 years of age for his son C. Ross Cox of Manti. 6From the history of Julius Jensen, a Utah pioneer who freighted to the silver mines. Taken from a letter received from National Climatic Data Center, Asheville, North Carolina, dated January 1, 1985. "NCDC has temperature records for November and December, 1880 for Coalville, Fort Douglas and Salt Lake Citry, Utah. The images of the old weather recording forms are stored on microfilm^ Record-keeping in Utah did not really get organized until 1887. There are no records for Manti and St. George. The records that we do have for 1880 are a rare find." 55.
