Joshua Stephenson

Joshua sailed to America from England on the 1856 Horizon.  The ship manifest shows his surname as "Stevenson," but the hand-written company roster and the roster in the Deseret News shows his surname as "Stephenson."  We have not been able to locate him on a census or on any death records.
