Ann Eliza Logan Secrist

The Secrist family traveled to the Salt Lake Valley in the Edward Hunter/Jacob Foutz Company in 1847.  The family consisted of Jacob Foutz Secrist and Anna Eliza Logan, and their daughter Louisa. 

At the end of a mission to Germany, Jacob traveled to the Salt Lake Valley as Captain of the Jacob F. Secrist/Noah T. Guymon Company in 1855.  He died of Cholera en route on 2 July, on Ketchum’s Creek, between Kearney and Leavenworth.  A tin coffin was made with the intention of bringing his remains to the Valley.  However, it was insufficient, and he was buried on 4 July.
