Edward Cyrenius Bagley

Edward and his wife Julia Ann had a son George Ford Bagley, born 26 April 1838, who died at Council Bluffs, Iowa and is thus not included on the list of those who traveled west.  The family started across the plains with the Seth M. Blair/Edward Stevenson Company but other family members soon died from cholera so they stopped at the Big Nemaha River "to clean up the wagon and selves."  They then continued on to Utah with the Richard Ballantyne Company.

Birth date is confirmed by Provo 2nd Ward records at the time of a rebaptism on 8 July 1855.
