Lorania Eldredge

The company records indicate that Lorania's husband, John, was traveling with "family." The 1860 Utah census records, taken a year after his arrival show his wife and two daughters so it is assumed they are the "family" accompanying him in the 1859 Haight Company. Additional evidence of this is that a "Mrs. Hogan" was mentioned in Horace S. Eldredge's journal. John's wife, Lorania Eldredge Hoagland was Horace Eldredge's sister.

Other documents show her given name as Lorena, LoraineLurena, or Lurana.
