    Notes 
    • Born between June & Dec 1846. Death date from Kay Hatfield; we don't know the primary source yet. According to Logan Price's obit, Mary died 4 weeks after they arrived in Oregon and they went to Oregon in 1887. Janet Griffith has a picture of "Fred, Bill, Carrie and Preston Price" with Logan Guinn and a woman we first thought must be Mary but now think is Elizabeth, taken after Logan Price brought the children back to Belle Plaine in 1891.
