Jesse Small

Evidence from emigration and her obituary proves that Jessie traveled to Utah in 1854. She may have come with the 1854 Darwin Richardson Company but a primary source is needed to confirm that information. Her name appears as "Jesse" on the 1854 John M. Wood ship manifest and as "Jessiey" on her obituary. Her birth date is confirmed by Lehi Ward records.
