I have a relative who was a survivor of the wagon train. She was a small girl. Her name was Martha Jane (Mattie) Ball-Cromwell. Her father and uncle were two of the Ball men who were killed at the massacre. I would love to have a complete list of the survivors. She used to tell stories of having survived in the desert eating berries and such and then remembered that the nice people who offered to help, made them pay $2.00 per person to help them. She would be my great-great-great grandmother. She lived to be in her seventies and died in California.
