Missing early membership/ordinance information
Hello. Would it be possible to locate the early missing membership and ordinance information for the following ancestor and his wife?
George Washington Damron
8 February 1830 – about 1871 • G99Q-9S9
Susan Elizabeth Stewart
20 September 1833 – 20 March 1872 • LH1N-C1L
Currently, all of the ordinances for George Washington Damron are shown as either being completed in 2019 or reserved in 2019.
Susan Elizabeth Stewart's ordinances indicate baptism and confirmation in 1939 Salt Lake Temple; initiatory and endowment 10 August 1861 in the Endowment House and sealing to parents and spouses as 2017, 2019 and 2016, respectively.
I would very much appreciate locating the early ordinances for this couple. Evidence of early ordinances is recorded, as follows:
George and his wife, Susan, were early converts to the Church in Ellis County, Texas. They are listed as members of that Branch on June 1, 1856 by Elder Morris J. Snedaker: George Damron & Wife. (Snedaker, Morris J. “The Diary of Morris Jackson Snedaker, 1855-56,” Norman B. Ferris, ed. Southwestern Historical Quarterly, v. 66, pp. 516-46, April, 1963) See Shultz and Damron Narrative Biographies on the Memories page.
The biography includes the following information about the early ordinances:
"It is obvious from reviewing the records, that George and Susan participated in the meetings with the Mormon missionaries who taught the Damron family late in 1855, and early in 1856 in Henderson County, Texas. Family History Library Film Number 183404, Record of LDS Church ordinance (living or proxy) lists George Washington Damron as being baptized in 1856, and Susan Eliz. Damron, born 20 Sep 1833 in Nashville, Davidson, Tennessee, daughter of Charles & Catherine Stewart, as being baptized April 1856. In addition to FHL Film 183404, another record indicates George W. Damron’s baptismal date as 4 February 1856 and his priesthood ordination in 1859:

George accompanied his mother, two brothers and two sisters on the pioneer trek to Salt Lake Valley, arriving in September 1857 with the Homer Duncan Company.
