Bishop Gardner Snow, July 15 1848

has notes: This branch is clearly separate from the other Big Spring, but it has several members in common with Carterville, including the 1848 bishop and president. Almost all mentions of this branch are before any mentions of Carterville. Thus it is possible that Big Spring either turned into or was merged into Carterville Branch.
