MRS. CELIA TAYLOR PIONEER PASSES ON

She was a consistent member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The immediate cause of death was cancer of the stomach.
The funeral was at 10 o'clock on Thursday morning at the First Ward house and was conducted by Bishop Hyrum Calder. The speakers were President Don B. Colton and John N. Davis. The music was funished by a quartet. Burial was at the Rock Point Cemetery.

AFterwards she went to Winter Quarters, where in 1856 she was married to Alma Taylor. In 1887 the husband came to Ashley Valley and a year later the wife followed.
