Ole Pearson

Evidence from emigration and church (Perpetual Emigrating Fund) records and newspaper records proves the Pearson family traveled to Utah in 1863. The family's surname is spelled "Persson" on the 1863 John J. Boyd ship register. A daughter, Anna Pearson, born 1854, came to America with an aunt on the 1862 Electric ship. A younger brother accompanied them, but died at sea. She is listed with the 1862 Unidentified Company.
