Title Footsteps to Zion
Description half-starved people. Some of the children's feet were frozen so badly they had to lie down all the while. My little brother, James, lost half of both feet. Others lost toes from frost-bite and suffered greatly The good people of Springville will never be forgotten for their kindness to us. Father Bird, who was our family doctor, came to our home every day for months and dressed the wounds, with the help of mother and others who supplied our needs. [The church gave a generous plot of land that had a cabin on it to the Kirkmans, to help them adjust to this new life.] In the spring of 1857 Mother married Charles Hulet. He was a fine man and provided us with a nice home and took good care of us. Mother had two children by him named Margaret Ann and Mary Frances. He died in May 1863. Mother married a third husband, Joseph Wood Cook, but was divorced from him before their child, Viola, was born. Mother was good, kind and devoted to her family, full of faith and, in spite of all her suffering and sacrifice, she never uttered a word of complaint There was one thing she could never endure and that was the sight of a handcart It brought back such sad memories of the past and she could never be induced to join a handcart parade. Her life in Springville was of the noblest. She took part in the church work and was loving and sympathetic to those in need. [Mary Kirkman served as the first Primary president, until she was abruptly released when her daughter married a non-Mormon! She was also very active in the Relief Society] 63
