Me again. In my frustration in trying to get my messages sent (technical problems I suppose), I failed to rewrite it as it was. I was tired; I didn't reread it. I missed informing of the connection among the names, Mema, Goldianne, & Polly. The full title of the book is:
PIONEER LIVING WITH MEMA: THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF GOLDIANNE (GUYER) THOMPSON
I hope this makes it clearer. Also, I'd like to add that she refers to other family members who travelled to other states. I recall CA, specifically. And there was a Welsh bride in there somewhere.
