Lydia was buried as a Knight, and her McClellan desendants have entered her in FAG under that surname. Her full name was Lydia (Goldthwaite) [Bailey] [Knight] [Dalton] McCellan. Let all who claim her as a grandmother praise her.

Your life exhibits "Faith in Every Footstep" almost beyond belief. Such a glorious legacy for us who follow you.

I heard about your life on "History of the Saints" on KSLTV in June 2015. You were an amazing woman and an example to me to endure our trials to the end. Death is but a moment in eternity.
