George Romney

Evidence from census, genealogical and newspaper records proves that the Romney family traveled to Utah in 1850. They may have come with the 1850 Edward Hunter Company, but further research is needed to confirm the name of the company they traveled with.

His birth and death dates are confirmed by his death certificate.
