  3. 3. "SIXTY-SECOND COMPANY. -- Golconda, 321 Saints. Under the presidency of Elder Jacob Gates, three hundred and twenty-one Saints sailed from Liverpool, on board the ship Golconda, January 23, 1853. Among other prominent elders on board there were Claudius V. Spencer, A. M. Harmon, R. Rostron, W. Speakman and John Carmichael, who had acted as pastors and presidents of conferences; some of them had been in the missionary fields for many years. Among those who emigrated in the Golconda, were the late Thomas King and his wife, Hannah Tapsfield King, who assisted quite a number of poor Saints in emigrating to Zion. After a prosperous voyage of forty-four days, the Golconda arrived at the Balize, at the mouth of the Mississippi River, where they waited twelve days for a steam tug to take them up to New Orleans. During the voyage, half an hour's storm despoiled the gallant vessel of her three top masts. Four births, two marriages, and two deaths occurred on board; the health of the Saints was very good generally during the entire passage. On the twentieth of March, Elder Spencer baptized Erik M. Caste, a Swedish sailor, who accompanied the Saints to the Valley. The conduct of Captain Kerr gave great satisfaction to all the company, and before the parting a vote of thanks, with three cheers, was tendered him. On the twenty-sixth of March the vessel arrived safely in New Orleans, where the emigrants boarded the steam packet Illionois, on which they continued the journey to St. . Louis, Missouri, and thence, soon afterwards, to Keokuk, Iowa. (Millennial Star, Vol. XV, pp.105, 282, 288, 392.)" http://history.lds.org/overlandtravels/trailExcerptMulti?lang=eng&pioneerId=14459&sourceId=19264 Harriet Ann Thompson, Reminiscences "We came to Utah in 1853, crossed the ocean in the old style sail-vessel "Galconda" [Golconda]. Mr. Bwerker was the sea captain. It took 70 days to cross from Liverpool to New Orleans. We were detained in mid-ocean because of a severe storm. From New Orleans we traveled to Keokuk, Iowa waiting at this point 3 weeks for ox teams to be fitted out for crossing the plains. The next move was to Council Bluffs, Iowa then on to Salt Lake City. They put ten outfits in a company. Each company having a captain. Our captain was Joseph W. Young.
  4. 4. My father, William P. Thompson, a sick Mother, a cripple, with four young children, set out on this long trip. At night Father stood guard against the Indians, he drove ox team during the day. Mother and baby 10 months old, Sarah Ann, rode. The other members walked full distance. Well I do remember our feet, sore and blistered with walking. Also fear of the Indian attacks. One time they stole Father's watch. Again on the journey Mother was real ill. She had mountain fever. Being to[o] sick to travel, they camped on the Platte River. Joseph W. Young, our captain, administered to her and promised her she would be better and live to see Salt Lake Valley, and she did. We arrived there (Salt Lake City) in the month of October, after a nine month journey http://history.lds.org/overlandtravels/trailExcerptMulti?lang=eng&pioneerId=14492&sourceId=6365 1853 Joseph W.
