    Notes 
    • UtahTerritorial Pioneer
      Of Naggshead Dorecoate Street, Stocton-on-tees, Durham,England
      Emigrated from England leaving Liverpool 31 Mar 1855 on the ship "Juventa" with his wife, Elizabeth
      and five surviving children arriving at Philadelphia 5 May 1855.
      The company then proceeded by rail to Pittsburgh and from thence by steamboat down the Ohio river
      to St Louis. Traveling from St Louis to Florence Nebraska they outfitted themselves and joined the
      Richard Ballentyne Company of Ox-teams to cross the plains arriving at Salt Lake City 25 Sep 1855. Some confusion arises from the fact that Richard Ballentyne was in charge of emigrating saints from England,leaving Liverpool 17 Jan 1855 on the ship "Charles Buck" arriving at New Orleans about
      14 Mar 1855 and then arriving at St Louis 27 Mar 1855. Richard Ballentyne then led an ox-team company across the plains to Salt Lake City arriving there 25 Sep 1855. Those parties in the ox-team company were not exactly the same as those crossing the ocean even though the total numbers match closely.
