Evidence from emigration, newspaper and church ordinance records proves that Thomas and Hannah Woolley traveled to Utah in 1855. They sailed to America in 1855, and a church ordinance was performed in Salt Lake City 17 June 1856, which was prior to the arrival of that season's emigration. Further research is needed to determine the name of the company they traveled with.In some sources, his surname is spelled "Wooley."
