Malinda Allison Kelley joined her husband with Company A of the Soldiers of the Mormon Battalion. Her husband died with the Sick Detachment in Nov 1846, and then in Feb 1847 she gave birth to their daughter at the Sick Detachment campsite in Pueblo Colorado.
It appears that both her and her husband were distant cousins to Jefferson Hunt (1803-1879), captain of Company A.
