Elizabeth Drown

Evidence from newspaper records proves that the Drown family traveled to Utah in 1849. A secondary source states that they came with the 1849 Ezra T. Benson Company, but further research is needed to confirm the name of the company they traveled with.

The obituary of David Tarvel Drown states that he came to Utah in 1849 with his father, stepmother and half-sister.

Elizabeth was born en route and her travel to Utah is mentioned in the obituary of David T. Drown.
