      Taken from the book " Ancestry and Genealogy of Thomas Grover"
      Mentions Marcus Holling as part of this Missionary Group.

      "He started from Alt Lake City on this mission, on 12 May 1867, crossing the plains most of the way by foot, and occasionally by oxteam. His own immediate group of missionaries were: Nephi Pratt, John S. Lewis, Levi W. Richards, Willard B. Richards, and himself, the other missionaries in the large party, most of whom were going to Europe, were: Karl G. Maeser, M. Holling, Octave Ursenbach, James Sharp, Wm. H. Harner, Christian Fjeldsted, , (???) Mortensen, (???) Olson, (???) Reese, (???) Jensen, (???) Peterson, and (???) Johnson. Due to the deep snows in the canyons, and snow and mud in the high valleys of the Rockies in eastern Utah and Wyoming, even at this late period o spring, their travel was quite slow, many days making only ten or twelve miles, while on better days they sometimes made as much as twenty five or even thirty miles each day. The weather was fine for the most part, his record states , though they had a few small storms and considerable wind, but most nights were quite cold at that high altitude and in the open country. He and the others soon learned at first hand just what their parents and the other pioneers had encountered fifteen to twenty years before. The night of Firday , June 7th, while camped on the "Muddy Creek", (evidently just southeast of Wamsutter, Wyoming), Indians attacked their camp, killing the herdsman and night-guard, a Brother Christian Jensen, and made off with the four horses they had. After burying Brother Jensen, they proceeded slowly onward being more careful, and doubling the night-guard over teh oxen. Tavel from there on was by foot for all of them, with only occasional travel in the wagons when the going was easier. Their oxen became poisoned from eating certain weeds along the trail, and they lost a very ffew of the cattle, doctoring the sick with emetics, and then loading the sick cattle into one or two of the large wagons, and proceeding on their way. The sick oxen soon recovered, and they lost very few, while other parties of ox-trains were loosing many of their best cattle due to the poisoning from bad feed along the trail. Monday, July1, 1867, they arrived at Julesburg, Colorado, which was then the western terminus of the Union Pacific Railroad, then being pushed westward across the courntry as radily as possible. From Julesburg to Omaha City, then from Council Bluffs to Chicago, and onto New York City they traveled by "the luxurious comfort of an elegant railway carriage", changing cars and trains three or four times en-route, as they changed from one railroad to the other, reaching their destination, New York City, on Saturday, July 6th, where they took in the sights of the big City for a few days, though he acknowledges they "all soon tired of such a City lif". Wile in New York City they met Brothers Orson Pratt, Brigham Young JR., Mrs Young, John W. Young, Geo D. Watt, and others , who were en-route home to Salt Lake City, after ahving just returned from England. Friday, July 12, Brother Maeser procured their tickets for passage to England on the SS. Manhattan, sailing the next day. The following several days of grandfather's Journal states how terribly sick he was, learning all about sea-sickness and steerage life, and became convinced he was very poor material for a sailors life. Friday, July 26, 1867, they landed 'on good old terra firma" in Liverpool, England and were met by Brothers Franklin D. Richards, W. B. Preston, and C. W. Penrose. ".......
