COMMENT:
1. Since Martha's husband, Vinson, died in 1842, the records show the property being sold in 1846 by Martha Knight.
2. 26 January 1846 Martha was sealed to the Prophet Joseph Smith for eternity.
3. 26 January 1846 Martha was sealed to Heber Chase Kimball for time.
4. In 1920, descendents of Vinson Knight petitioned President Joseph F. Smith to restore Vinson's family to him. This was done and the families sealing to the Prophet Joseph Smith, Jr. was nullified.

Name transcribed from Winter Quarters Wards Membership Lists 1846 - 1848. Taken from a variety of historical sources. They are not complete, and because of the difficulty reading handwriting, may not be entirely accurate. Most of the lists seem to be from the winter of 1846 - 47, but some are from later. In addition, people often moved to better housing, thus changing wards. Sources for these lists are: bishop's reports, high council meeting minutes, tithing records, and 'census' reports of widow, soldier's wives and other unassigned members of wards. The original records are available at the Historical Department, Archives Division, of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Salt Lake City Utah.

Note: Stated in record above; "2 in the family, widow"
