Henry Woodville Wilson

Henry's obituary states that he came to Utah in 1852 with his parents and sisters. Further research is needed to determine the name of the company they traveled with. He later participated as one of the rescuers that were sent out in the winter of 1856 to assist the members of the Church stranded in Wyoming.

His birth and death dates are confirmed by the Utah State History Cemeteries and Burials Database.
