Samuel Layton

Evidence from emigration, census, and genealogical records proves that Samuel traveled to Utah sometime between 1851 and 1855. He sailed to America in 1850 on the ship James Pennell, arriving in New Orleans 23 November 1850. The first evidence to place him in Utah is the 1856 Utah census, taken in February 1856, which was prior to the arrival of that season's emigration. Further research is needed to determine the year he came to Utah and the name of the company he traveled with.
