William Henry Darger

Evidence from newspaper and genealogical records proves the Dargers traveled to Utah in 1852. They had a child born in Utah in Dec. 1852.  William's in-laws and their children are on the original roster of the McGaw Company of this year but William and his wife (Martha Jane Soper) are not.  Additional research is needed to discover the name of the company with which Martha and William traveled.


Company Unknown (1852)Approximate age at departure: 36
