Isaac Voorhees

Evidence from church records proves that the Voorhees family traveled to Utah in 1852.  Further research is needed to determine the name of the company they traveled with.

A note on the Find a Grave website indicates that his came to Utah with the 1849 Warren Snow company, but this information is incorrect.  There was now Warren Snow company in 1849.
