Title Gentile Account, page 147
Description the Mormons had to abandon it. I suppose some of her own citizens wanted it for three or four of the squatters at once moved in. Last year they raised 15000 bushels of wheat on the fields the Mormons had irrigated. So poor E came back penni- less, and "looking like a broken old man, though he is only 30," to his old place as book-keeper, having lost six years out of his life for nothing.127 Mrs. Harriet was easily persuaded to tell me her own experi- ence of the flight from Nauvoo. They were among the last who left, for the whole family were down with fever and ague, and her mother clung to the shelter of a roof as long as possible. After they started indeed they had to stop at Farmington Illinois, 118 designing to pass the winter there. On the journey, she said, "many of the sick would have died but that God fed us with quails. I recollect sitting up in the wagon and watching them. They came morning and evening and flew right up against the wagons and hurt themselves so that a tap of a stick killed them. At Farmington we hired rooms for the winter, but Mother and I had hard times to buy provisions, not on account of our poverty only but because of the hatred felt against us as Mormons. People bade Mother keep her eye on the old man, Father that `?TAfter the boundary dispute MYIS settled in favor of Nevada, most of the Mormon colonists on the Muddy River west of St. George left. Some went to Glendale and some to Orderville, as well as St. George. `Vrobably Farmington, Iowa. There are several references in pioneer literature to the Iowa community and no mention of an Illinois settlement. R. H.
