Capt. Edward Martin's handcart company, detained by the unusual early snow storms of the season, was met by Joseph A. Young, Daniel W. Jones and Abel Garr, at a point sixteen miles above the Platte bridge. Three days later the company arrived at Greasewood creek, where four wagons of the relief company, in charge of Geo. D. Grant, loaded with provisions and some clothing for the suffering emigrants were awaiting them.
