Statistics of the Winter Quarters Thirteenth Ward

All family members of the head of the household living within the Ward boundaries are listed prior to their departure West or through 1853, whichever occurred first. Some of these children may have been married or died and were not living with the family when the Ward census was taken. The Winter Quarters wards were only in place from 1846-1848, at which time the government required the Latter-day Saints, who were on Indian lands, to move back to the east side of the Missouri River.

#Indicates members of the ward as listed by Ron Watt Lists: 1846-1848”.
( ) indicates spelling, if different.
The list of members includes only widows, soldier’s wives, and one other and is therefore incomplete.

The term "widow" does not necessarily mean the husband has died.  It just means that the woman is living alone.

Those members in “bold type” are most likely the ones in the current family.

Multiple wives are indicated by ( ) after the name.
