James Harwood

Although Samuel Harwood and his children are also listed on the Outhouse roster, that company experienced divisiveness and for much of the way, each ten in the company traveled independently. Lang captained one of those tens and the Harwood family traveled with him.

Later, James participated in the effort to rescue the members of the Church stranded in Wyoming in the winter of 1856.
