The Gerber family traveled to the Salt Lake Valley sometime in 1854. The family consisted of Johannes Gerber and his son John Gerber, as well as John’s family. In 1854, John was married to Anna Maria Ackeret, his fourth wife. His first three wives had died. John’s family included his children from his previous marriages, Maria Susanna Wilhemina Gerber, Lewis Emanuel, and John Theophilus. It also included his current wife, Anna Maria Ackeret, and their children Helena Ellenora, and Julia Ann.
Circumstantial evidence from newspaper, and genealogical records proves the Gerber family traveled to Utah in 1854, however, further research is needed to determine which company they traveled with.
