Elias Edwards

Brother of Esaias Edwards. 

At some point they moved to Goshen, Utah. The Goshen ward records indicate that Elias and Esaias joined the Church in 1849 and were each baptized by Edward Edwards.

He sailed to the United States in 1857 (a year after Esaias). A rebaptism date of 1858 is consistent with an 1857 overland trek experience. More research is needed to identify which company Elias traveled with in 1857.
