Amilla Jane McFerson

Evidence from census, newspaper, and genealogical records proves the McFerson family traveled to Utah in 1851. They appear on the Iowa census, enumerated in September 1850. A daughter is born in Utah in Jan. 1852. These two events narrows the window of the travel to 1851 and prove they had to come in that year.
