LDS Baptism date for my 2nd great grandmother
My 2nd great grandmother, Elizabeth Bird 19 October 1815 – 18 May 1896 • KWJF-1T1 was born in England. She married John Cushing in England in 1836. John and Elizabeth and their youngest daughter, Laura, immigrated from England to the US and to Utah in 1874. Elizabeth is listed in Family Tree (FT) with an Endowment in Sep 1875, in the Endowment House. But her baptism date, listed in FT, is 1999, more than 100 years after her death. 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? In her Memories, there is a Story, Incidents in the life of Laura Cushing, written in 1933 by Laura Cushing. Laura was born October 1853. In that story, it says: My dear Mother was baptized into the LDS Church shortly before I was born. So the baptism date for Elizabeth should be in 1853.
