This is a list of books I have found valuable in my search to know my ancestors. Check with the author or distributor for current prices and availabilities.

Contact Heidi Bingham to purchase: firstname.lastname@example.org. The cost per book, at this time, is $50.00. There are only a few copies left. We can have more copies printed but the publisher will charge us more for small orders, so the cost may increase a bit.

Cross Bywater, Mary, Quilts of the Mormon Migration. This book contains pictures of Samantha and Permelia and some of their grandchildren in the book. (They are the wives of Warren Marshall Johnson) Permelia and Samantha made a quilt square for a quilt that is now on display at the new Cowley, WY museum. I just found the book on Amazon. It’s a little pricey but there are used copies that are affordable. http://www.amazon.com/Quilts-Women-Mormon-Migrations-Bywater/dp/1558534091/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpt_3
LaVerle Neves’ book Their Roots were Long and Deep was published by Stevenson Genealogy. It can be ordered through their website for $20.25- a bargain for the wealth of information! I’m not sure on the shipping costs. Stevenson Genealogy also published two other books you may want to add to your family history library:
Nelson: Mansel H. Nelson; 1363 W. Thurber Place, Tucson, Ariz. 85705; Nelson Family History; 1970, 306 pp; $18.25
Asay: Flossie W. Asay; Rt 2 Box 114, Provo, Utah 84601; Descendants of Joseph and Sarah Ann Asay; 1965, 488 pp; $25.50
There are other Neves’ books however, they are not a direct line. They are related though, and many are available through Stevenson’s Genealogy.
