The Joseph Thorn family originally went to Utah in 1847. However, at some point they returned to Iowa, and they stayed there until 1853. After arriving in Utah in 1853, with other extended family members, they bid them farewell, and Joseph took his family to California.
Birth date and death date listed were found in a personal, online family history record (such as Family Tree, Ancestry, or My Heritage) without any accompanying documentation. Further research is needed to verify its accuracy.
