Alonzo Orson Perry

Although documentation is scant, the Perry family likely traveled to Utah in 1850. They are listed in the 1850 Utah census and other family members are documented as coming to Utah that year.

Alonzo later participated as one of the rescuers that were sent out in the winter of 1856 to assist the members of the Church stranded in Wyoming.
