Yesterday’s answer:
A   Sego Lilies
From the life of Frances Ann Otten Crossland Adams:   Frances Ann and her husband joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in May 1851. They decided to take their three young girls to join the Saints in Utah. Frances was expecting her fourth child. While they were in Keokuk, Iowa, just four days before they began their journey across the Plains, Frances Ann gave birth to a baby girl. It was not an easy birth and she was confined to her bed in the wagon through much of the trip. The long and arduous journey was exceedingly difficult for her husband and proved to be fatal. He became ill with Mountain Fever and died near the Bear River in Evanston, Wyoming.
Suddenly, Frances Ann found herself a widow. She was still weak and ill from childbirth. She was alone with three little girls and a baby.
They arrived in the Salt Lake Valley about September 26, 1853. She found a meager dwelling and tried to find work.
They found themselves totally without food during the cricket invasion of crops. She determined that they would seek the Lord’s help. They all knelt and prayed all night for assistance. The next morning they saw that the whole back yard was covered with sego lilies.
