Gilbert Belnap Born 22 December 1821 at Port Hope, Ontario Canada Entered Salt Lake Valley 17 September 1850
      In Nauvoo, Gilbert met Adaline Knight, and, on December 21, 1845, was married to her by Heber C. Kimball. The young couple left the city in February 1846 along with the thousands of Saints who evacuated the area at the time, crossing the Mississippi, according to family history, on a horse which jumped from one block of ice to another to reach the Iowa shore. They stayed at Winter Quarters until June 1850, when with Gilbertas a captain of ten, they began the trek across the plains. Three months later,they arrived in the Salt Lake Valley.

Adaline Knight Belnap Born 4 May 1831, at Perrysburg, Cattaraugus County, New York. Entered Salt Lake Valley, 17 September 1850
      Adaline Knight Belnap was the third of six children born to Vinson and Martha McBride Knight. As a child of three, she left the family farm in Perrysburg, New York, with her parents and journeyed to Kirtland, Ohio, to be with members of the Church. She lived through the hardships and persecutions in Kirtland, Missouri, and Illinois as she grew up. She was present at the meeting in Nauvoo when the mantle of the prophet fell upon the shoulders of the new leader, Brigham Young. Then on December 21, 1845,at the age of 14, a short time before the exodus from Nauvoo, she married Gilbert Belnap, a convert to the Church who had arrived in that city just six months before.

      The trek across Iowa was a difficult one, but the couple eventually arrived at Winter Quarters. They were joined a short time later by Martha Knight. They remained there until 1850. Adaline's first child, Gilbert Rosel, was born there in January, 1847.Tragedy befell them shortly after their departure for the west when their second son,one-year-old John M., became ill, died, and was buried along the trail in his father's tool box. Three months later, in September, 1850, the company arrived at the Salt Lake Valley.
