Edmund Marchant

Proof that Edward Marchant brought his family to Utah in 1853 is based on him not appearing in the 1852 bishops' report and receiving a church ordinance in June 1854 in Salt Lake City, prior to the arrival of that season's emigration. Further research is needed to determine the name of the company he traveled with. His travel to Utah in 1853 is confirmed by his wife's obituary.
