Mary Wright

Although she isn't listed on the Gates company roster, her daughter, Ellen, later wrote that she was in the same company as her children. For some inexplicable reason, Mary's name is on the Gates company roster. The Gates and Spencer companies departed from Keokuk, Iowa, on the same date. The Gates roster, dated Sep. 1853, is more detailed than the Spencer roster.
