    Hey! Melissa is my 4th-great-grandaunt! Her sister, Alzina Lucinda, is my 4th great-grandmother.

    I love this series.

    Hi Lindsay. I enjoy your podcasts and was especially interested in the Melissa Lott podcast #32 as she was a relative of mine and I remember my Grandfather telling us about her as he was in her home often as a child! I have read todd Compton’s book where he talks about her, but your podcast has much more information! Would you mind sharing your sources?
    I was disappointed tthat you did not get her husbands name right. His name was Ira Willes and he and his brother Sydney Willes served in the Mormon Battalion, his brother married Melissa’s sister Alzinda Lott.
