John Jackson

John arrived in New York on 14 July 1868 via the ship John Bright, along with his wife Mary, and nine children. First documentation to place the family in Utah is John and Mary's rebaptism, along with that of several of the children, on 4 October 1868. A secondary source states that the family came to Utah in the 1868 John R. Murdock Company, but further research is needed to confirm this. Birth date is confirmed by Lehi Ward records.
