Evidence from census records proves that Taylor came to Utah sometime between 1851 and 1852. He does not appear on the 1850 Utah census. The first documentation to place him in Utah is a rebaptism in the Provo 2nd Ward on 1 September 1852. He likely traveled in 1851, the same year his parents and siblings, but further research is needed to verify that.
