Milton Datus Hammond

He traveled with his father from Michigan en route to California, but arrived in Salt Lake City on 22 July and stayed in Utah where he joined the Church after a few months. A non-contemporary typescript list (Journal History, Supp. after 31 Dec. 1848, 5) places him coming to Utah in 1848 with Brigham Young by mistake.
