David Savage

The Savages initially traveled to the Salt Lake Valley with the Daniel Spencer/Perrigrine Sessions Company in 1847.  The Savage family included David, a daughter from his first marriage, Amanda Polly, his wife Mary Abigail White and their daughter Mary Theodocia.

Then, in 1857, he traveled with the Amasa M. Lyman/Charles C. Rich Company.

As an out-and-back teamster, he traveled across the plains in 1860.  Further research is needed to determine which company he specifically traveled with. 

His birth and death dates are confirmed by the inscription on his gravestone.
