Levi W. Hancock/Jefferson Hunt/James Pace/Andrew Lytle Company

1847

This company was composed of 117 returning Mormon Battalion veterans. They traveled over the Sierra Mountains from the Cosumnes River near Sutter's Fort in California. From the beginning, they divided and traveled separately in small groups, but generally within a few day's distance from each other. After crossing the mountains, they followed a course which took them to Fort Hall and then to Salt Lake Valley.
