Missing membership/ordinance information
Would it be possible to locate the original baptism date for my ancestor?
Cynthia Elizabeth Damron
9 August 1837 – 7 December 1872 • LLQK-DKY
Currently, the baptism is listed as 19 February 1985 Dallas Texas Temple, but she was confirmed 4 March 1856. She was an early Texas convert and part of the Homer Duncan Pioneer Company of 1857. Initiatory and Endowment were completed 11 May 1861 in the Endowment House, although her sealing to spouse was 20 December 1857.
I would expect that her original baptism date was 4 March 1856, the same date as the confirmation.
Cynthia Elizabeth Damron was listed as "Betsey" on the list of those belonging to the Ellis Co. (Texas) Branch on June 1st 1856, as recorded in the Diary of Morris J. Snedaker, 1855-1856. (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)
