Winter Quarters

Posted by Paul On July - 31 - 2017

While attending the July 2017 IPMS Nationals in Omaha Nebraska, my son Jared and I took one morning to visit the Winter Quarters Museum across town.  It was here that thousands of LDS saints camped before begining their treck across the country to what is now Salt Lake City Utah.  It is the largest migration in our countries history.  My great great grandmother, Maria Normington was among those who made the treck.  She lost her husband and a baby boy on the journey.  Her story is related in this section, and is well worth reading.
