Evidence from census, church, and genealogical records proves the Tuckfield family traveled to Utah in 1861. They were enumerated in June in Boston in the 1860 Census--too late to then get to the outfitting place to travel to Utah that year. Upon their arrival in Utah, they were rebaptized in the 17th Ward on 17 Nov. 1861. These events prove that they could have only traveled to Utah in 1861. She also married in Salt Lake in March 1862, further confirmation that she had to have arrived in 1861.
