Yesterday’s answer:
C   Brigham Young
From the life of Ann Holmes Burton:   In 1865, Ann’s husband sailed for America, leaving his family in England. The following year he sent for the family. Ann and the four living children prepared to leave. They went to the train with their oldest son, Joseph. He had to remain in England for two more years to finish his apprenticeship as a shoe maker. They were all sad and Ann sobbed as they parted.
Ann and the children sailed on the ship “Arkwright,” leaving Liverpool on 30 May 1866. There were four hundred and fifty members of the Church on board. They endured many storms at sea. Sometimes the wind would blow them back from where they had already sailed. One of these times, the Captain of the boat, Daniel P. Calkin, walked below deck and said, “You Mormons had better hope that the wind changes or you will never see Brigham Young.”
