Orrin Alonzo Perry

He traveled with his son and his brother's family. The Hindley company report states that a man named "A. Perry" traveled in John Coward's company of ten along with Henry Perry. The company report also records the presence of "W.A. Perry." Orrin Alonzo Perry is located in Utah in both 1860 and 1870 census records, along with his wife Jane McLaws Perry. Jane also traveled in the Hindley company. Evidence that he came to Utah in 1855 is confirmed by information found in Church financial records. Due to the combination of evidence, it is assumed that "W.A. Perry" and "A. Perry" are actually "Orrin Alonzo Perry."
