William Wallwork

The company roster shows his name as "Walworth." Through the PEF, we see that James Blackham sent for William and his father, Thomas. They traveled with James' mother, Martha Blackham and her family. When his father died on the trail the Blackham family took William into their home and he died the following March in Salt Lake City.
