    Autobiography volume 1, 1894.
    Description:
    Volumes contain reminiscent account written from memory and from earlier notes and journals. In many cases Maughan appears to have copied earlier writings into her autobiography, although it is possible that at some point she began making contemporary journal entries in the third volume. Account includes information about her early life in England and her 1840 conversion to Mormonism; her 1841 emigration to Nauvoo, Illinois via Canada, with a seven-week stopover in Kirtland, Ohio; her marriage to and life with Peter Maughan until his death in 1871; their 1850 journey to Utah; her activities in Tooele County, Utah; and her activities in Cache Valley after 1856, where she resided at Wellsville and later at Logan. Maughan writes of the forty years she spent as a Utah midwife, her work as a Relief Society leader and a worker in the Logan Temple, her children and extended family, and her involvement in later life in old folks' excursions and activities. Autobiography includes copies of an acrostic dedicated to her, as well as poems written for her birthdays.
