From the life of Lydia Catherine Haws Haskell Curtis: Lydia Catherine was the fourth of nine children. The western movement was taking place country wide and her family was part of it.
Lydia’s father was a farmer and he moved his family around often. They moved to Jackson County, Illinois, then Cass County, where they were approached by missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They joined and were baptized.
In the spring of 1852, they headed to Utah. It had been said that Lydia and her sister, Mary Eliza, carried a ‘sad iron’ with them crossing the Plains so that they could look nice with ironed clothes.
