Robert P. Wilson

Although his name appears on a non-contemporary typescript list in Journal History (Supplement after 31 Dec. 1849, 5A), that is in error. There is much evidence to show that he traveled to Utah in 1848, not 1849. In Utah prior to the arrival of the 1849 emigration, he received a patriarchal blessing, was granted property, and was rebaptized. His obituary also makes it clear that he traveled to Utah before 1849.
