James A. Garrett
The obituary of his sister, Sarah Hannah, states that she came to Utah with "a sister, brother and grandmother." He initially traveled to the valley in 1862, but four years later, again crossed the plains as a teamster for Daniel Thompson's out-and-back company.
James' parents and many of his siblings came to Utah in 1866. It is uncertain which company they traveled in.
