Sarah Goode Marshall 1821-1904
First Handcart Pioneer to enter the Salt Lake Valley - Sept. 26, 1856



Beginning June, 9, 2009,  Lynn "Doc" Cleland reenacts the 1,400 mile historic journey made by his great-grandmother, Sarah Goode Marshall.  She was one of almost 3,000 hardcart pioneers that traveled on foot from Iowa City, IA to Salt Lake City, UT between 1856 and 1860.  Pulling a handcart constructed from the original specifications, Lynn is following his ancestor's footsteps, eating only what they ate, sleeping in a replica 1850's canvas tent, wearing period clothing, and following the Mormon, Oregon, California trail as closely as possible.
