    From Our Crandall and Beckstead Ancestors:

    "The families of David Crandall and his in-laws, the McBrides, remained close and moved from one place to another together. David and his family heard the Gospel in the home of his mother-in-law. [...] The family moved from New York to Kirtland, Ohio, in 1835. Late in 1835, David, Margaret and Daniel Mead Crandall went to Pike County. Most of the family remained in Kirtland. It is in Pike County where their youngest child was born. Daniel returned to Kirtland that year and David and Margaret remained in Missouri. They went through the same persecutions as did the other Saints there. [...] From Missouri, David and Margaret moved to Quincy, Illinois in about 1838, and met up with the rest of the family. They stayed in Quincy for three years. In 1841, the moved to LaHarpe, Illinois, twenty three miles east of Nauvoo, where there was a thriving branch of the church. [...] David and Margaret were endowed on August 24, 1843, in Nauvoo, in the office of the President.

    "David Married Mrs. Jerusha Smith sometime between the death of Margaret and when the Saints left the area in 1846. She had children from her first marriage. [...] Two reasons kept David in LaHarpe: his youngest daughter, Margaret Ann, had mental limitations and he knew that she would not be able to handle the arduous trip west; and his second wife, who was not a member of the Church, refused to go. [...] In 1853, his daughter, Margaret Ann, died."

    David married Margaret Ann McBride about 1810. Margaret (daughter of Rev. Daniel McBride and Abigail Mead) was born on 1 Jun 1792; died on 24 Aug 1845 in La Harpe, Hancock, Illinois. [Group Sheet]

    She is probably the Sarah Reynolds shown as born 11 Aug, year not known, to George and Hannah Reynolds of North Kingstown, in Vital Records of Rhode Island 1636-1850, first series, volume 5, page 95. Hannah could be a mistake for Joanna. She was definitely a daughter of George and Joanna Reynolds; George called her "Sarah Wells" in his will.

    Notes:

    The Gardiners of Narragansett has Peter Wells and his wife Elizabeth Sweet dying, respectively, 16 Sep 1757 and 13 Sep 1757, but a correction on page 249 says that these are the death dates of a different Peter Wells and Elizabeth Sweet, who m. 2 Jul 1746. This other Peter was the son of Jonathan Wells of East Greenwich and the other Elizabeth was the daughter of Richard Sweet of West Greenwich.

    We are a little dubious about Roscoe L. Whitman's claim (citation details below) that this Peter Wells lived to be 98 years old.

    Peter married Elizabeth Sweet on 11 Dec 1733. Elizabeth (daughter of William Sweet and Thankful Hamilton) was born on 14 Nov 1713 in East Greenwich, Kent, Rhode Island. [Group Sheet]
