William Walter Wilson

Evidence from emigration and genealogical records proves the Wilson family traveled to Utah in 1854. They sailed to America in 1854, but the first documentation to place them in Utah is the marriage of William in July 1855, which was prior to the arrival of that season's emigration. Further research is needed to determine the name of the company they traveled with.
