Priscilla Abbott Lemmon

Circumstantial evidence from genealogical records proves the Lemmon family traveled to Utah in 1862. One of the Lemmon children, Minnie, was born in Nebraska after the 1861 emigration departed and died in Utah prior to the arrival of the 1863 emigration. This proves they could have only traveled to Utah in 1862. Priscilla was living with the Allumbee Lemmon family in Nebraska according to the 1860 census. She probably traveled with them to Utah.Death date is confirmed by her obituary.
