Evidence from genealogical records proves that the Williams family came to Utah in 1856. A daughter married in Utah in Mar. 1857, prior to that season's emigration. The obituary of another daughter says she was a handcart pioneer of 1856. Secondary sources say the family traveled with the Edward Bunker Company, however, none of their names appear on the published roster of this company (Deseret News [Weekly], 15 Oct. 1856, p. 254). Further research in primary sources is needed to verify this.
