Mention of Eph Hanks in a discourse by Heber C. Kimball
26 September 2004 23:45

Sherry Smith sent me a copy of a talk given by Heber C. Kimball on 4 December, 1856. The event was the funeral of President Jedediah M. Grant. As this was shortly after the rescue of the handcart companies, President Kimball mentions the efforts of Eph Hanks and a few others who helped in the rescue.

You can find the talk in the Journal of Discourses Volume 4, page 135. But as I would assume most folks don't have the JD lying around on their shelves, the talk is given in its entirety in the link above. I've also placed a link to it from the Ephraim Hanks page. Eph is mentioned in paragraphs 22 and 23.

I'm Carlie. Ephraim Hanks is my 3rd great grandfather. His wife Thisbe Quilley Read is who I am through. I am actually walking as Thisbe on trek. :) I love genealogy and especially the Hanks side.
