Edward Stevens

Evidence from census and newspaper records proves that Edward Stevens and his son Edward Edwin Stevens traveled to Utah in 1857. They sailed to America in 1855, but do not appear in 1855 or 1856 Utah church records or the 1856 Utah census. The father's obituary states that the two of them came to Utah in 1857. They may have traveled with a handcart company, but further research is needed to confirm this and determine the name of the company they traveled with.
