Evidence from census, and genealogical records proves that Esther traveled to Utah in 1851. She does not appear on the 1850 Utah census but Church ordinance records proves she was in Utah by 20 Oct. 1851. A secondary source says she traveled with the Hyrum Dayton family. Further research is needed to determine the name of the company with which they traveled.
