Accessible through this web page are copies of many original and supplemental historical documents and other resources on the lives of Utah Pioneers Gilbert Belnap, Adaline Knight, Henrietta McBride, their descendants, and their ancestors.
Materials available through these links include many previously unpublished or otherwise generally inaccessible materials.  Contributions and corrections are welcomed.
When reviewing information below, it might be helpful to note that Gilbert Belnap's wives, Adaline Knight and Henrietta McBride, were first cousins to each other.  In addition, due to intermarrying among various Mead branches of Adaline's and Henrietta's shared McBride ancestry, the majority of Henrietta's ancestry is also shared with Adaline, although only half of Adaline's ancestry is shared with Henrietta:  Of Henrietta's 16 great great grandparents, 11 (69%) are shared with Adaline, whereas only 8 (50%) of Adaline's 16 great great grandparents are shared with Henrietta.
