David Udall Family Reminiscence

From His Journal

Many dates and some names on this record are erroneous.  These genealogical abstracts were collected and composed in December 1850, between David Udall and Eliza King’s marriage and their departure to America.  A few dates were added to the text later.  There is also a list of names for whom LDS Temple work was done in 1870.


Udall Family
