Dugald and his wife Jane crossed the Atlantic on the ship Yorkshire in 1843. Dugald was reportedly age 23 and a silversmith. He and Jane received Patriarchal Blessings at Salt Lake City on 22 August 1852; at the time they were living in the 16th Ward. Dugald was a member of the 33rd Quorum of the Seventy. On 7 November 1854 he sold land in Salt Lake City. In 1855 he paid tithing at the Ogden, Utah Second Ward and is listed in the record as a farmer; in 1856 he paid tithing at the Ogden Third Ward. He also donated $392.00 to the L. D. S. Church while in Ogden. His given name is sometimes spelled "Dougald" or "Dongal." Dugald and Jane's names do not appear on the 1850 Utah census, so it is likely that they arrived in Salt Lake in1851 or 1852. Additional research is needed to identify the year he and his wife crossed the plains and the name of the pioneer company with which they traveled.
