Elizabeth Harris Browett

Her birth date is confirmed by the Utah State History Cemeteries and Burials Database and the Patriarchal Blessing Index. Church ordinance records confirm her arrival in Utah prior to February 1848. The 1897 Deseret News article cited below says Elizabeth traveled to Utah in Parley Pratt's 1847 Company. While it is true that Parley Pratt was in this company, he was not the captain.
