History of Romania Bunnell Pratt, Utah
Taken from the Jared Pratt Family Family Association. (Links Added)

In the fall of 1874, Romania Pratt sold her most prized possession, a piano, for enough money to travel East.  Her destination – the Women’s Medical College of New York.

Such a journey was a daring undertaking back in that day and age for a sheltered Mormon wife and mother of five.  But Romania was determined to become a doctor.  The young woman felt a deep commitment to helping the sick and injured.  She also felt a personal responsibility to answer Church President Brigham Young’s command: “Women must come forth as doctors in these valleys of the mountains.”
