Baptism date of my great grandmother
My great grandmother, Laura Cushing 8 October 1853 – 3 March 1945 • KWJF-1TB, was born in England. The Cushing family immigrated from England to the US and to Utah in1874. Laura married in SLC in Feb 1876, to Henry Charles Cushing, in the Endowment House. She is listed in Family Tree (FT) with an Endowment in Sep 1875, also in the Endowment House. But her baptism date, listed in FT, is 2 Sep 1884. Likely she was baptized in England before immigrating in 1874, and surely she was baptized before she was endowed in 1875. How can we get the earlier baptism date to appear in FT? That baptism date of 2 Sep 1884 was the baptism date of her oldest son, at age 8.
I see her older siblings have infant baptism records and I also see that her birth date may be in October 1854 not 1853. Possibly the birth record now attached, for the 4th quarter of 1853, pertains to another baby with the same name.
So, I would search for an infant baptism in the same collection as her siblings.0

Regarding individuals/persons, from the 1800s, from OTHER Countries, who were "Baptised" in their respective Countries; as, Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints; BEFORE, they Migrated to the United States of America ...
IF, I recall; THEN, many of the EARLY (post 1830) "Baptisms", of the Saints, in Other Countries, the records, are not available/lost; and, as such, when the Saints, came to the United States of America, they had to be Re-Baptised.
It may be quite possible, that your Great Grandmother's, "Re-Baptism", was in 1884, when one of her Children was "Baptised", maybe not.
