    • DEATH: Lost on the plains near Fort Laramie, Wyoming in July 1852.

      Elizabeth Mainwaring, daughter of Peter and Jane Molyneaux Mainwaring, w a s born 22 May 1808 at Liverpool, England. She married Isaac Brockbank , Sr . in the year 1835 in Liverpool, England. She was a devout Methodis t an d when her husband embraced “Mormonism”, she was quite upset.

      She was a loving mother and a devoted daughter. When her mother needed e x tra care, Elizabeth and her husband moved into her mother’s home that s h e might take care of her.

      When her husband decided to come to America, she tried to influence he r c hildren to stay in England with her. When they would not, she agree d to g o for the sake of the children but she told some of her family tha t if th ings didn’t work out, she would return.

      Quoting Isaac, Jr., “In the latter part of July as we journeyed along a n d having passed Fort Laramie, my mother seemed more reconciled. Just be fo re noon, we came to a very steep hill and those who had been riding i n th e wagons got out and my mother did the same. She gave the baby to m y sist er and Preceded down the hill.

      “There were many wild currant bushes and quite a patch of them at the bo t tom of the hill. This is the last place she was seen by anyone of the c om pany. We did not miss her until we made noon camp. I rode back to thi s pl ace but could find no traces of her. In the morning, my father and B ro. L ayton, Assistant Captain, rode back and though they found her foots teps a round a spring and some on the road to Laramie, they could not fin d her.”

      “Three or four men who had left a sheep camp told of seeing a woman on t h e road but when she saw them, she left the road. They traveled back t o La ramie but found no trace. Authorities there promised to notify the m if an y thing turned up. “

      “She was always willing to bear everything for the sake of her childre n a nd I cannot think, even at this time, that she willingly went away.”

      She must have been of strong character and strong in her belief of wha t w as right and wrong.
