Title Dear Ellen, Page 083
Description Notes lection are her letters sent to arid received from other members of the family, letters received from friends (including Ellen Spencer Clawson), and a diary of the period of the return from the Society Islands, February 14 to October n, 1852. Especially important is the journal of her mother, Louisa Barries Pratt, in the possession of the editor, published in an edited form in Heart Throbs of the West (Salt Lake City: Daughters of Utah Pioneers), volume 8 ( 1947), pages 189-400. The journal of Ellen's aunt, Caroline Barnes Crosby, preserved by her granddaughter Mae C. White and in the custody of the Utah State Historical Societv, is also important for Ellen's biography. The journals of Addison Pratt, in the possession of the author, eover essentially his memoirs before his marriage and his missions to the Society Islands, 1843-52. For a brief account of that experience see S. George Ells-worth, Zion in Paradise: Early Mormons in the South Seas (Logan, Utah: The Faculty Association, Utah State University, 1959)- In addition to the biographical and genealogical information available in the Addison Pratt Family Papers and the Hiram B. Clawson Papers, searches have been made in the Archives of the Genealogical Society of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for biographical and genealogical data, which have proved very helpful. The records of Beaver County, Territory of Utah, Beaver County Courthouse, arc important for tracing land acquisitions and sales, as well as civil actions. Important points in the history of members of the Pratt family are found in the Recorder's Office and the Clerk's Office.
