Lars Hansen

Local church financial records clearly state Lars traveled with the Thomas E. Ricks Company. However, the Deseret News roster lists the rest of his family and another individual traveling with them who is only identified as "A. Larsen." Lars' name is not listed with his family. It is believed that the "A." was mis-transcribed, and it is actually representing Lars, the head of the family.
