The exiled colonists of Old Mexico found blessed relief in El Paso Texas. A lumber yard was given for temporary housing for the group of refugees. Calvin & Achsah McOmber and their two sons Calvin & Emerson, along with grandma Marinda Clark, and the Stouts, Cox, & Clark families were there. Aunt Viola said that when they had the evening prayers that night, they all sang "Come Come ye Saints" and wept. Viola's father, Bishop Byran Allred, died during the exodus of a heart attack.
