Ransom Abraham Stevens

Evidence from newspaper and genealogical records proves that the Jordan family traveled to Utah 1851. Lois Ann Coon Jordan's obituary states that they came in 1851. A son was born in December 1851 and a church ordinance was performed in Utah in March 1852, which was prior to the arrival of that season's emigration. Ransom traveled with his mother, Lois Ann Coon Stevens Jordan. Further research is needed to determine the name of the company they traveled with.
