Daniel Wood

Daniel initially traveled to the Salt Lake Valley with his wives Mary and Penina and his children in the Brigham Young Company in 1848. In that company, he served as Captain of Fifty. The family's travel to Utah in 1848 is also mentioned in the obituary of his daughter, Elizabeth.

Daniel 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.

His birth and death dates are confirmed by the inscription on his gravestone.
