Joseph Henry Randall

Joseph initially traveled to the Salt Lake Valley in the Jacob F. Secrist/Noah T. Guymon Company in 1855. Evidence found in Church financial records confirm that he came in 1855. However, he later participated as one of the rescuers that were sent out in the winter of 1856 to assist the members of the Church stranded in Wyoming.

On many records, Joseph used his middle name of Henry.
