Histories & Photographs

Accessible here are links to many original and supplemental historical documents, certificates, civil records, letters, photographs, and other resources on the lives of Utah Pioneers Gilbert Belnap, Adaline Knight, Henrietta McBride, their descendants, and their ancestors–organized by individual.  Materials available through these links include many previously unpublished or otherwise generally inaccessible materials.  Contributions and corrections are welcomed.

When reviewing information below, note that Gilbert Belnap’s wives, Adaline Knight and Henrietta McBride, were first cousins to each other.  In addition, due to intermarrying among various Mead branches of Adaline’s and Henrietta’s shared McBride ancestry, the majority of Henrietta’s ancestry is also shared with Adaline, although only half of Adaline’s ancestry is shared with Henrietta:  of Henrietta’s 16 great great grandparents, 11 (69%) are shared with Adaline, whereas only 8 (50%) of Adaline’s 16 great great grandparents are shared with Henrietta.  Click on an individual name to access helpful resources.  (Names marked with an asterisk (*) are direct-line ancestors of descendants of Gilbert Belnap, Adaline Knight, or Henrietta McBride.)
