Eliza Creswell

The Creswells, Eliza, and her parents, William and Sarah Woolley, traveled on board the “Cynosure” from Liverpool to New York on 30 May 1863, and landed on 19 July.  Eliza's future husband, Edward Cliff, also traveled on the "Cynosure" as a returning missionary.

Further research is needed to determine which company they traveled with.  However, evidence from emigration and Perpetual Emigrating Fund records proves Edward and the Cresswells traveled to Utah in 1863.
