Susannah Thain

Although her name does not appear on the original hand-written roster, she probably traveled with the Dan Jones/John A. Hunt Company together with John and Margaret Edwards Price. In a biographical sketch of her parents Margaret Price Evans wrote: "Susanna Thain came with Father and Mother and helped care for John William who was just four years old. She walked through the snow in the cold and this crippled her so she was crippled the rest of her life. After they got to Salt Lake, John married her.
