Thomas Axton

Emigrated from England. His son's obituary states that he died en route at Laramie, Wyoming. Some family sources indicate that it was in July of 1856, but if he died in Laramie, it must have been closer to August or September since the company didn't leave Florence, Nebraska until July 30th.
