Joseph, his wife Louisa, children Henry, George, Emma, Thomas and William came from England in 1863 on the ship Amazon.
The Wilson family came to Utah between 1863 and 1866. They likely came in 1863, the year they took a PEF loan for their emigration and sailed to America. But the first documentation to place them in Utah are church ordinances performed in June 1867 which was prior to the arrival of that season's emigration. Further research is needed to narrow the year of their travel.
His death date is confirmed by the burial record.
