In 1933, Emily Steele Jensen applied for membership in the Wiltshire Camp of the Los Angeles Company of the Daughters of Utah Pioneers organization. She cited several pioneers in her lineage, including John Steele Jr, Catherine Campbell Steele, James Jepson, Eleanor Nightengale Jepson, Mahonri Moriancumer Steele and Mary Ellen Jepson Steele. She was admitted on 12 June 1933 by the then-president Cornelia S. Lund, of Salt Lake City, Utah.
Emily's application shows her pride in her pioneer heritage as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Her membership number 5972 indicates a rather small quorum in 1933, although today DUP boasts of over 88,000 members. I was happy to show this old application to my fellow members here in the Yellow River Camp of the Gwinnett Company of DUP here in Georgia.
