|When I first read the field notes of Annie Alexander and Louise Kellogg, I was fascinated by the descriptions they wrote about the places they went and the plants and animals they found there. By publishing my field notes on the Internet I hope to follow a little bit in their tradition.|

A Link to Past Gone
Mrs. Ella Turner's kin founded church
Book of Mormon was written in home of Woman's Great-Grandfather
Mrs. Ella Turner, 96, who was buried in Richmond, Mo., was a frail woman whi kept close to her home at 4115 Bell Street, but for the nearly 2 million members of the Monmon churches, she was a link to their beginnings.
In the home of Mrs. Turner's great-grandfather, Peter Whitmer, the Mormon church was founded. In that small frame home in Fayette, N. Y., Joseph Smith sat and dictated to her two great uncles, Oliver Cowdery and David Whitmer, the Book of Mormon.
Time passed, and the persecuted Mormons moved from New York to Ohio, then Illinois, then to the west. Mrs. Turner's kin settled in Richmond. David Whitmer still had the manuscript of the book.
Hard times followed David's death and his son, George Schwiech, took a loan from the Reorganized Church of the Latter Day Saints. The book was his security. Schweich never reclaimed the book. Today it is in the vault of the City National bank here.
Mrs. Bessie Marston, Mrs. Turner's daughter, took her mother to see the book several years ago at the R. L. D. S. auditorium in Independence. Elders of the church knew of Mrs. Turner, and told her to stay and look at the book as long as she liked.
Mrs. Turner died Thursday.
