Jonathan Wilbur Green

Evidence from genealogical and newspaper records proves that the Green family traveled to Utah in 1851. Thomas and Harriet were married in Kanesville, Iowa in April, 1851 and the obituary of Jonathan states that he came to Utah in 1851. Further research is needed to determine the name of the company they traveled with.

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