Elizabeth Hannah Parkes

She was listed on the ship manifest prepared by the Liverpool office of the British Mission as scheduled to sail on the ship Juventa in 1855. Listed with her were her mother, father, and her sister, Ann. Her mother died prior to the voyage so Elizabeth stayed in England for another year to settle her mother's estate. Her father and sister came ahead in 1855 as far as Mormon Grove where her father died. In 1856, Elizabeth sailed to America and became a member of the Martin company.
