Title Gentile Account, page 011
Description Tuesday. We had a distinguished company to dinner today at our little round table. Hitherto we have eaten in the long dining- room with all our travelling company. We claimed the right to select one from among them to be our caterer and standing messmate-an old friend of my husband's, whom none of our invited guests will not be glad to meet, but there are several whom I shall miss, particularly my Welsh friend Mrs. Jane.`O In the evening Mrs. A quoted a Mormon version of the old Nursery Rhyme, making it run "My mother's my mother all the days of my life, "But my father's my father, only till he gets a new wife." She has been baptised, she told me, several times, once for the remission of her sins, once for the restoration of her health, Roysc and hIary Ann Oatman and their family of seven children, while traveling the Santa Fe Trail alone to Fort Yuma, lvere attacked by renegade .I\pachcs and all of the family killed except for fourteen-year-old Lorenzo, \vho sur\i\ed his clubbing. and Olive and Mary, \vho the Indians took tvith them. Later the two girls Lvere sold to the hlojaves. Olive survived the six-year ordeal but the younger girl died. Lorenzo in Fort Yuma heard of t\vo girls being held captive by the Indians and arranged for the release of his surviving sister. Reunited with I.orenzo, she visited relatives in California and Oregon and became acquainted with a Reverend Royal R. Stratton cvho published a book on her experiences titled Cuptrvit\l of the Outman Girk (San Francisco: Whitton Towne SC Company, 1857). ?"hIrs. Jane is the wife of Lorenzo I)o\v Young, Brigham Young's brother. She traveled. nith her husband, to St. George from Salt Lake in the Kane party. and although she was identified as a Lvifc of Lorcnzo Dolv Young, Lvhich one \vas never determined. Lorenzo Dory Young \vas married five times-to Persis Goodall in 1826, Harriet Page Wheeler Decker in 1813, Hannah Ida HeLvitt in 1856, Eleanor Jones in 1856, and Anna Larsen in 1863.
