Ship Brooklyn
A Virtual Cemetery created by: Carl W. McBrayer
Description: In 1846 Saints of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 70 men, 68 women, and 100 children, 238 persons total, answered the call of their leaders to "gather to Zion." On 4 February 1846, they boarded the Ship Brooklyn and began an epic voyage that would eventually sail around Cape Horn, land at San Fernando Island off the coast of South America, deliver and gather supplies at the Hawaiian Islands and eventually arrive in Yerba Buena (now San Francisco) on 31 July 1846. The voyage lasted six months, covered 24,000 miles and endured two massive storms, and landed only twice before reaching their destination. They experienced a crowded and harsh existence for these six months and buried fourteen of their number on the way. When reaching their destination they began expanding the city of San Francisco, and it has never stopped. They introduced many "firsts" to California and established a thriving farming industry. They participated in the discovery of gold in 1848, along with the Mormon Battalion veterans, and were first in the mines. Many of them felt they needed their faith and religion more, and left the gold fields, traveling to Utah where they pioneered many new cities.
