Thomas C. Smith

Evidence from newspaper and genealogical records proves that the Thomas family traveled to Utah in 1852. They had a child born in Iowa in October 1851 and Thomas's name appears in the 1852 Bishop's report in Utah. Further research is needed to determine the name of the company they traveled with.
