Mary Jane McClellan Head

Circumstantial evidence proves she traveled to Utah in 1851. She is listed in the 1850 Iowa census which was taken in November 1850 and she had a child born in Utah in January 1852. Her obituary mistakenly states she came in the 1850 William Snow company. If she had come to Utah in 1850, she would be in the 1850 Utah census, but she is not listed there.
