Jane Gertrude Howard Wilson

Circumstantial evidence from genealogical records proves that the Wilson family traveled to Utah in 1857. A child was born in California in November 1856. The first documentation to place them in Utah is the birth of another child in March 1858, 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.Her death date is confirmed by her obituary.
