Evidence that the Stephen and Mary Wells came to Utah in 1851 is based on their marriage in Kanesville in June 1851 and the birth of a child in Salt Lake City in May 1852, prior to the arrival of that season's emigration. They had to have traveled to Utah in 1851. The DUP application listed below says Stephen and his wife were in the Alfred Cordon Company. Cordon was a Captain of fifty in the James Cummings Company.
