Abstract

“I believed in the principal [sic] of the gathering and felt it my duty to go although it was a severe trial to me, in my feelings to leave my native land and the pleasing associations that I had formed there; but my heart was fixed. I knew in whom I had trusted and with the fire of Israel’s God burning in my bosom, I forsook my home.”1 So wrote Mormon convert Jane C. Robinson Hindley, who gathered to an American Zion in the mid nineteenth century
