A passenger aboard the Thornton, Mary Ann James Dangerfield, wrote, “Death claimed our little Jane and we were obliged to place the precious bundle in a watery grave. Mother’s heart strings were torn, but the brave little mother that she was felt not to murmur against the will of Him who gave.”

Her family crossed the plains with the Willey and Martin Handcart Companies.

"We were met at Camp Iowa by Elders from Salt Lake, with tents, handcarts and provisions, we were told that all must walk that could and pull our baggage and provisions. The emigrants were divided into four companies. The company in which we traveled was the Willie Company and numbered about 500 souls. We left Camp Iowa July 15th and the first 200 miles of our journey was filled with pleasant memories. After leaving Council Bluffs, Iowa, we started on what is known as the remarkable journey recorded in the annals of history."
