Records indicate that Julia Anne Grant was buried forty miles from Mormon Grove, Kansas on the Pioneer trail to Salt Lake City, Utah. For more details about her life, see the notes for her husband Edward Cyrenus Baglley. The Kansas History Website reports that: In 1855 four or more trains were organized at Mormon Grove totaling perhaps 1500 Saints. Their route across Kansas appears to have been northwest on the "New Ft. Laramie Road" to the vicinity of Kennekuk, and then continuing on the "Old Ft. Laramie Road" as established by Maj. Wharton in 1844 to the head of Walnut Creek in present Brown County. Near present Fairview they chose to follow Col. S. W. Kearny's 1845 trail to Baker's Ford about nine miles north of present Seneca. The Eli Williams family from Atchison County, Missouri, settled on Deer Creek in Nemaha County in 1855, and reported many Mormon wagon trains passing. Cholera took a heavy toll in both 1853 and 1855. Some of the converts had died of the disease before arriving at the jumping-off place, and sanitation at the base camp was of the most primitive sort. A cemetery at Mormon Grove contains about 50 unmarked graves, mostly cholera victims. (http://www.kansasheritage.org/werner/party.html)
