Jorgan Foss

The company he traveled with was noted in local church financial records. In some sources his name given name is "George" or "Jurgen" and surname is "Voss". Jorgan married Sophia Charlotte Rasmussen Foss on board the ship. In the Deseret News, Sophia is shown traveling with an "Inger." Jorgan is not listed. Further research might prove that "Inger" is misspelled and supposed to be "Jorgan."
