    Notes 
    • Elizabeth was born in Sheffield, England on December 19, 1832. She married George Allen Wadsworth on April 18, 1953 in the St. John’s Cathedral in Sheffield, Yorkshire, England.

      They became members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and desired to emigrate to America. They sailed from England on the ship “Horizon,” on May 25, 1856 and arrived in Iowa City on July 8, 1856.

      Her husband was called to be branch president of the Iowa City Branch during the winter, so their westward trip was delayed until 1857. They crossed the Plains in the William G. Young Wagon Company and arrived in the Salt Lake Valley on September 26, 1857.

      Elizabeth and her family were among the first settlers of Toquerville, Utah where the family hid from detectives who were searching for her step-son, James Allen Wadsworth, so they could return him to England.

      Elizabeth’s family moved to Panaca, Nevada two years after it was first settled. She served as visiting teacher and Relief Society President in Panaca for many years. Her grandchildren remembered her as a tiny woman who was kind, patient, and an excellent knitter.
