      6. FHL film 702: "Journal of John Stoker, b. 1817; Journal starts November 1, 1869." John was the son of David Stoker and Barbara Graybill. The first 35 pages detail his mission taken from Utah to Virginia and Tennessee through Council Bluffs, Iowa, which I have summarized and included with his notes in this database. Pp. 36-227, the balance of John's journal, are genealogical notations of family. Many pages are blank. Besides family, the journal also notes many other unrelated Stokers who were probably gleaned from books and other sources. It appears as if maybe his son David may have taken over the book later. Many entries are repetitive at different times. Pertinent data for this family or individual is quoted verbatim as follows:
      P. 51: "Sarah Hales, Henry C. Hales, 22 St. 1st house east of Tebot(?) Park."

      7. Copy of letter received from Dave Frye and on file with me addressed to Sarah Gibbs by Ellen DeGraw Frederick (wife of David Frederick, Jr.) with a mention about Martha Catherine Frederick, David Frederick Sr. (Dad) and David Frederick Jr. Martha had evidently just left Michael Stoker and the two children were Mary Grace Shoemaker and Sarah Catherine Stoker. A copy of the envelope with a two cent stamp is included with the letter - it is addressed to Miss Sarah Gibbs, Salt Lake City, 123 N. 40 W. St." with note penciled "rec'd June 27, 1885." The transcription:
      "Glendale, June 24th, 1885. Dear Sarah, I recieved [sic] your kind and welcome letter and was glad to hear from you but was very sorry to hear of you looseing your little brother. It must be a terrible blow on your mother. Dad is not here now. He went to Parowan in April to see about his pension. He wrote back that he got there all right and found many warm friends. I also received a letter from Martha. She has left her husband again. She has got two children. I have got a baby boy 13 months old. Dad alway said that he reminded him so much of Frankey that he could not help loving him. David is not at home at present but I think he will be home in a few days then we are a going to move to Castle valley. There is not much new to write. Hoping this finds you as it leaves us all well. I remain as ever your friend. Ellen G. Frederick. You must not forget to write again. Please direct to Muddy Creek, Emery Co., Utah."
