Henry Carrigan

Henry and his family  (parents James and Ann, and brother James) began their overland journey with the Justus Morse Company in 1850.  When that company was dissolved due to contention, they joined the Shadrach Roundy company that was passing by. 

Henry's birth date is verified by information on his death certificate. There is no evidence that he had the given name "Benjamin," contrary to information in the New FamilySearch/Family Tree.
