  • Notes 
    • Richard Snow Badger gives birthplace as Salt Lake City, UT, and has her middle initial as B. Her daughter, Clara Peacock Anderson, tells the tale that soon after the family arrived in Manti, UT in the company of Brigham Young, this 3rd child was born. Andrew asked if he could name her, but when he chose the name of his 1st wife, Syrena Evans Moffitt, the mother's eyes filled with tears. Brigham Young asked, "Don't you like the name?" Margaret replied, "Oh, she is such a teeny little thing to have such a big name." She was called Teeny all her life. According to Clara, Syrena and her 2 older brothers were all married on the same day, 29 Jan 1876, and all left on a mission to help settle Arizona on Feb 16, 1876 with oxen and mule teams. Birthdate also given to LDS records as 20 Apr 1855. It may be that there was a daughter born in 1855 who did not live; hence the name was used for this child also.
