Cyrus Hubbard Wheelock

It's a long story, and I won't bother telling here why I started the project, but I've been working on a major tangent, the history of early Mormon missionary and leader Cyrus H. Wheelock (1813-1894). (No relation.) 

I'll be guest posting all week on Keepapitchinin about his history, his family, his well-known hymn, "Ye Elders of Israel," and the poetry of Hannah Last Cornaby, a member of his 1853 pioneer company. One of the stories featured in the material for the week comes from the collections of my great-great grandmother Mary Linton Morgan.
