About this Art:

In this scene of the Martin Handcart Company, I have depicted my relatives. The woman holding the infant is my great, great grandmother, Elizabeth Steele, from Scotland. The baby is James E. Steele, about one year old at that time. Her husband being buried is James Steele. They were converts and had just lately arrived in America in great expectation of a grand future in Zion. James had literally starved to death giving all his food to his children and wife. He died on the windswept plains, hundreds of miles from Zion, but with Zion close to his heart.
