Thomas Witton Ellerbeck

Church records prove that Thomas arrived in Utah in 1851. His obituary says he was in the Orson Pratt Company. However, Orson Pratt's family traveled somewhat independently although he was initially organized as a leader in and a part of the James W. Cummings's company. Pratt traveled at some times with and assisted John Brown's company. He arrived in Salt Lake City on 4 October.
