Thanks for your notes and sorry for the delay.

Ok, Elizabeth died on 10th October 1864 (according to the Millenium file).

However, although its a Citation there is NO information from where this came, making the Citation worthless. I have even contacted the Authors of the Millenium File and they have no idea. I am afraid tht the Millenium File is worthless and totaly discredited and should withdrawn.

I have researched every Journal/Diary for the Train. I know where it was for every day of its journey across Nebraska/Wyoming/Utah.

I have visited Salt Lake City and researched in the Church History Library. Came up with her loan from the Perpetual Emigration Fund and her and her husband Robert Rucks LDS baptism by Wilford Woodruff at Haws Croft, Redmarley on 9th April 1840. It was probably he who was being baptised when the stone hit Wilford Woodruff on the head and nearly knocking him down (Wilford Woodruff Journal).

I have spent hour and hours trying to find information on her death and where 10th October 1864 came from. If that is the correct date the Train was at Point of Rocks. If she was buried 3 days later (if you visit Point of Rocks you will understand if they did not bury her there) that would put her at Green River.

Details of date and place of birth are useful when identifying a person.

My original query still stands and unfortunatly no one, as yet,including Ancestry have no idea of the origination and proof of her death.
