taken from the Diary of William W. Meguire

April 30, 1845: The Nauvoo Temple was dedicated to the Lord (30 April 1846).  The meeting continued for four days.  The exodus of the saints from Nauvoo is continuing.

May 13: Margaret Tweed came to live with us.

May 27: Robert Wright started from Nauvoo with a load, part his, Bushman’s, Kearn’s and mine.

June 9: Col. Williams now warned the saints to leave Nauvoo and the vicinity so as to vacate by the 15th

June 12: Charlotte Meguire and Margaret Tweed started with Perry Whitlock with two wagonloads.

June 14: Brother Kearnes and Bushman, and I started and crossed the Mississippi River.  Traveled to the west two miles and camped till June 27; traveled to the farm of Bonnel and brothers (about 18 miles west of Nauvoo).  A large camp of Mormons were here to harvest grain, Bonnels having 530 acres to harvest, gave $1.25 per acre, part cash and one-half store pay for putting grain into shorts. I earned some over $10 harvesting.  I got my lame leg hurt and was unable to use it for three weeks.
September 1: I started from Bonnels with several others and traveled to four miles beyond Buonapart and camped September 10-12.  The burning of houses, etc. by mobs out from Nauvoo commenced in September.

September 17: Three others were shot.
Mid September: Brother Anderson and his son were killed. About the middle of September, Nauvoo was taken by the mob.

October 12th:   Eliza Bushman died. Martin Bushman, John Ely with their families (of our company) turned back. 
October 14th:   Irwin Whitlock started for Missouri.
