  • Notes 
    • Notes for JOSEPH WESTWOOD, JR.: Was heard to say he had fathered 24 children. Some Westwoods may have gone to Massachusetts. Excerpt from Westwood History, Pg 219. Joseph Jr. sold all his property and with his family and a boy friend of Hannah's boarded a sail boat at Liverpool. Now we heard that there were other Saints on the boat. They arrived in New Orleans the 20 April (1849) and boarded the boat called THE CONSTITUTION to go up the Mississippi to St. Louis where many of the saints landed. About a day out of St. Louis, Joseph left the boat to get bread, and the boat pulled out and left him. Phillip tried to get the skippper to go back and pick him up but he wouldn't. He (Joseph) looked quite forlorn standing there as the boat pulled out. Hannah said in her letter she was feeling sorry for him too. He came to where they were the next night. Phillip's wife took sick and when they arrived near Cairo, IL, she died. The boat stopped at Cairo. Elizabeth Wilks, Phillips (Westwood) wife, was buried the next night. She died 26 April 1849 and was buried the 27 of April. Hannah said it was a sad funeral. She said when her father Joseph arrived there were sevral dead on his boat. She thought that was how he contracted the cholera which was bad at that time. He got sick and so did his wife Ann. She gave birth to a baby girl on the lst of May and it died the 4th. Joseph died the 3rd of May and his wife died the 6th of May. The boat was put in quarantine and the bodies were all buried on the bank of the Mississippi River at St. Louis. William Hurst had a child about a year old, Betsy Ann who died about the same time. Susannah Hurst had another girl about a year after. " Believe family's trip was financed by the "Perpetual Emigration Fund" as they are also listed in that book. On Ashland's list of passengers, a Sarah Salter, aged 70, also appears listed along with Westwood family. She may have been a relative.
