* Heart Throbs of the West, Kate B. Carter, Vol. 2, p. 205

Lieut. Samuel L. Gully of Company E was a great friend to the men of the Battalion. He had taken a stand against the non-Mormon officers who were ill-treating the men. When two of the men, John D. Lee and Howard Egan started for Council Bluffs with the checks of the Battalion, it was thought an opportune time for Lieut. Gully to resign and return to his family. Accompanying these men and Roswell Stevens, he left to join his family. The next year he started for Salt Lake City, but died on the plains.

* Death of Captain James Allen
Treasures of Pioneer History, Vol. 4, p. 421

From their first acquaintance with Captain James Allen, the men of the Battalion, as well as the leaders of the Latter-day Saint Church, trusted him, as in every respect he had kept his word. When he was taken ill, in the month of August, there was not a man or woman in the Battalion who did not pray for his speedy recovery. But on August 23rd, 1846 at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas he passed away. Lieutenant James Pace and Lieutenant Samuel Gully remained with him during his last hours.
