I was recently notified by Family Search (the Mormon genealogy site) that a relative through my maternal Grandmother's paternal side, Cyrus Winget, was among the first pioneers to arrive in Salt Lake City to establish the LDS Church there. He traveled with the Charles C. Rich Company for 103 days, departing from Elkhorn River, NE, on June 1847 at the age of 32.

Cyrus Great-Grandmother was my maternal Grandmother's Great-Grandfather's Great-Grandmother, Sarah (1744 - 1830).
