Anyone know of a book (articles/stories) relevant to this particular wagon train? My ancestors travelled with these folks, and I'm looking for more information about them. I've secured a few stories from the DUP & list of names from the LDS website, but am also looking for other sources. Thank you.

My ancestors are:

John Depew, William Depew,
Sally Williams, (she was an Elmer),
Ira B. Elmer, Hiram Elmer, William Elmer, & all the children listed on the Overland listing. These folks traveled with Uriah Curtis wagon company.

John Elmer & wife Harriet Brunson (Gould) may have traveled a different wagon train. We cannot find them on Overland list. John Elmer was the grandfather to the above Depew boys. On the wagon train the Depew boys were in the care of their Aunt S. Williams till they got to Utah. Then the 1860 census shows them in the care of their grandfather J.Elmer. My main focus is on the Depew's and I can get tidbits about them by looking at lateral family trees. They were neighbors to the Curtis & Child families as well.
