Nathan Williams Packer

Circumstantial evidence from newspaper, census, and genealogical records proves the Packer family traveled to Utah in 1850. They may have come in the 1850 David Evans Company, but further research is needed to determine the name of the company they traveled with. His birth and death dates are confirmed by the Eastern Idaho Death Records Database and the inscription on his gravestone.
