Kent Kane recognized the historical value of Elizabeth Kane's journal, and he told his family and associates of his desire to have the Kane family papers which he had collected placed in the custody of the Mormon church for historical purposes. Sybil Kane, his daughter and executrix of his estate, made possible the transfer of the Kane family papers to the Archives of the Harold B. Lee Library, Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah. Library Archivist Dennis Rowley and his assistant LeGrand Baker, cataloged and inventoried the papers, after assisting in the purchase. Dr. Rowley provided continuing assistance to the editor with frequent suggestions and by making needed papers from the Kane Collection available. Donna J. Bowen, while assisting in Kane family research, found and read the journal of Mrs. Kane and urged her hus- band and her daughter, Mary Karen Bowen Solomon, to prepare it for publication. Sybil Kent Kane, Kane family historian, frequently assisted in checking the accuracy of family information. [Sybil Kane died December 18, 1994, two years after the editor of this pub- lication.] She is one of the few remaining family members who personally knew her grandmother Elizabeth Dennistoun Wood Kane. Other granddaughters, Mrs. Virginia Kane Africa of Warren, Pennsylvania; the late Mrs. i'irginia Kane Engstrom of Lake Worth, Florida; and the late Mrs. Florence Kane Johnson of Kushequa, Pennsylvania, and family members too numerous to name also assisted with family remembrances. James Allen of the Brigham Young University History Department encouraged this project in its early stages, as did
