Solomon Chamberlin

Solomon made two trips to the valley, first in 1847 with Brigham Young's company. He then returned to Winter Quarters after only a month in the Valley, to collect his family. Further research is needed to determine the name of the company he returned with in 1848.

His death date is confirmed by his obituary and his surname is sometimes spelled "Chamberlain."
