Two typewritten copies of excerpts from an autobiography. Some of the account is written in the form of a diary. Pectol writes about his conversion to the Mormon Church, his migration to Utah in 1850, and his life in Manti, Utah, starting in 1850. Pectol describes life in Manti including disagreements with his wife and encounters with the local Ute Indians before, during, and after the "Walker War" of 1853 to 1854.
Handwritten lists of names and dates when temple work was done for them. The item records when persons were given Mormon rites by proxy in an unnamed temple, probably the Manti Temple in Manti, Utah. The records were apparently kept by Soren Sorensen and Karen Sorensen.
