William Gibson Walker

Walker first traveled to the Salt Lake Valley with the Jacob Gates Company in 1853. He was called to serve a mission and at the end of his mission, he and his wife traveled back home in 1857. It is possible they traveled with teh 1857 Israel Evans Company, but further research is needed to verify that information.
