Maria Jane Vaughan
Although, Maria's family traveled to Utah in the John Smith Company (1860), it is believed that Maria traveled in the Walling Company (1860). Maria was not listed with her family in the John Smith Company roster, but a "Maria Vaughan" was listed in the Walling roster. Maria Jane Vaughan was the only Maria Vaughan listed in the Mormon Migration Database. Also, the Maria Vaughan listed in the Walling company was the same age as Maria Jane Vaughan. Finally, family tradition from Family Tree at FamilySearch.org states that Maria married David Brand on 29 April 1861 in Utah, which suggests she came to Utah sometime before the above mentioned date.
