Anelia Carter Van Ausdal

I have received a few comments about Anelia. She and her family were amazing. I wanted to let everyone know that the book, "Carter Pioneers of Provo, Utah" compiled by Arthur D. Coleman, is available in a reprint version. I found it at the following link.

The following is copied from the website where you can order the book:

A biographical, genealogical and historical account of the Dominicus and other Carter Families. Born in Maine early in the nineteenth century, Dominicus and his siblings joined the Latter-day Saints in their westward migration, through the Ohio, Missouri, Illinois, Iowa and Platte River valleys and across the Rocky Mountains of North America to the Great Salt Lake Basin and Provo, Utah.
