Jane McGavin Wilson


Evidence from genealogical and census records proves that the Wilson family traveled to Utah in 1858 or 1859.  Their daughter Canette was born in Massachusetts in February 1858.  The first documentation to place the family in Utah is the 1860 Utah census, taken 8 June 1860, which was prior to the arrival of that season's emigration.  Further research is needed to determine the year they came to Utah and the name of the company they traveled with.
