      From a letter written by his son, John E. Carlisle: "He went to American when a young man between 20 and 30 yrs of age."

      From Alma Carlisle: "Some years ago I was talking to Ben Carlisle when he was in Provo. We were discussing the Martin Handcart company and Margaret Kewley. He said it has always been a tradition on his side of the family that John Carlisle was one of the rescuers sent by Brigham Young in 1856. As I remember it, he said that John Carlisle brought Margaret back to Salt Lake on his horse. However, you have indicated that another version of this story is that he brought her back in a wagon. Since he had driven a wagon across the trail for Godbe and he knew something of both wagons, teams as well as the Oregon/Mormon Trails it would be more plausible that he had a wagon rather than just a horse.

      Assuming this story is correct, and it probably is since different
      branches of the family have heard it and Ben said that his family heard it from Margaret Kewley herself, the next issue concerns where he might have first seen her. I don't imagine that he could have first made contact with her anytime before the company left Martin's Cove. There's a possibility he could have reached the company somewhere along thetrail between Martin's Cove and South Pass, but he may not have reached the handcart group prior to their arriving at Fort Bridger. My guess, although it's pure speculation, is that he met the company somewhere around South Pass. As I remember, there is one account which indicated that by the time the Martin Handcart Company arrived at South Pass there was enough transportation for everybody to be able to ride and nobody had to walk after that. I hope this helps."
