Mary Ellen Paquet

Evidence from genealogical records, census, and church ordinance records proves that the Paquet family traveled to Utah in 1850.  Martha Ann was born in Iowa 25 January 1850.  The family appears on the 1850 Utah census, which was taken in the Spring of 1851, and Charles was rebaptized 11 May 1851, which was prior to the arrival of that season's emigration.  Further research is needed to determine the name of the company they traveled with.

All of the census records show the family's surname as "Packett."
