Thomas Wilson Russell

Thomas arrived in Utah sometime before the 1850 federal census was taken.  He appears as a 19 year old laborer living with the Alexander Hill family.  Further research is needed to determine exactly when and with whom he traveled to the Salt Lake Valley. 

At the end of a mission, Thomas returned home with the John W. Berry Company in 1858.
