Title Eliza
Description U. S. Marshals, are waiting for me on the bridge, and will catch me if we cross." My father answered, "I'm sure that my splendid Sarah Jane and KoKo can swim the river!" And swim the river they did! For horses to swim together, in harness, hitched to the double trees of a buggy, is no small feat. In fact, it was a most unusual undertaking, and it's accomplishment doubtful, if it weren't for the assistance of our Heavenly Father. You know we are told that...God works in a mysterious way. His wonders to perform, as seems to be the purpose be-hind the God-given pony. After this miraculous deliverance, and many arduous hours of driving, they arrived in Richfield where Brother Cannon was delivered safely to the home of President Siegmiller. Several days later, Marshal Clawson met father and said, "Peter, you spirited Brother Cannon away from us, but I wish your brown mares had drowned." Through the years, this remarkable team made many trips similar to this helping the brethren elude the forces of per- secution that were pitted against the church and its members.
