Alexander Wilkins

Evidence from census and newspaper records proves the Wilkins family traveled to Utah in 1851. They appear in the Iowa census in 1850 (taken in October) and in the bishops' report in 1852 in Utah. Further research is needed to determine the name of the company they traveled with.
