George Edward Sirrine

Evidence from genealogical and census records proves the Sirrine family came to Utah in 1858. They had a child born in 1855 in California and they are not on the 1856 Utah census. They have a child (Emiline) born in April 1858 in Utah (according to information given in the 1900 Arizona census). They likely came to Utah from San Bernardino after the Saints received counsel to travel to Utah during the Utah War.His birth and death dates are confirmed by his obituary and the inscription on his gravestone.
