To Leslie Jones;
I have vol. 4 of Enduring legacy and there are several pages beginning on 333 -344 on your Bertelsen family, in fact, about nine pages. I have read through it, and it tells that they came to America on ship "Constitution" under the direction of Elder Christensen, a packet under a Capt., Turkey. They sailed for 8 weeks arriving in early July in the New York Harbor, but I haven't found any place that tells which Pioneer company they came to Utah on. Sorry!

You may want to check the Pioneer wagon trains that left Florence Neb. in early July 1863 to see if you can find any that may give you some leeds.
If you would like me to copy the 9 pages of the history in this book and snail mail it to
you, I'd be happy to do that. If so, write back to me at and send me you home address.

My maiden name is Jones also, Leslie. My Jones's are from Merthyr Tydfil, Glamorgan, Wales.
Best Wishes,
