James Connell

James is mentioned in the PEF record for a Samuel Connell, who also traveled in 1863. It is uncertain what their relationship was and if James traveled with Samuel's group.

The 1900 census indicates that he emigrated to the United States in 1863 and Parowan Ward records document a rebaptism on 2 January 1864, which was prior to that year's emigration season, so he must have crossed the plains in 1863. However, further research is needed to identify the name of the company he traveled with.
