Walter Lindsay

The Lindsay family, originally from Scotland, included their widowed mother, Janet McLean, and siblings Marion, John, Walter, Christina, and William.  Janet, Marion, Walter and William traveled on The Underwriter from Liverpool on 23 April 1861 and arrived in New York on 21 May.  More research is needed to determine how and when John and Christina traveled to the United States.

The Lindsay family traveled to the Salt Lake Valley with the Lewis Brunson Company in 1862.
