Mahalia Ann Rebecca Matthews Holladay

Evidence from genealogical and newspaper records proves that the Holladay family traveled to Utah between 1857 and 1859. A child was born in California in June 1856. The first documentation to place them in Utah is the birth of another child 2 Mar. 1859. The obituary for the father, John Daniel, states that they came to Utah from California in 1860, which is likely incorrect. Further research is needed to confirm the year they came to Utah and the name of the company they traveled with.
