Some sources say James was on the ship Brooklyn in 1846 with his mother and brother Alondus, but his own obituary says he arrived in Utah in 1854. This is substantiated by Church ordinance records and by the fact that a James Buckland (age 21) appears in the 1850 census of Vermont not far from where James D. was born.
