David P. James
The first documentation of his arrival in Utah is his rebaptism on 22 September 1850 while living in the Salt Lake City 9th Ward. It is likely that he arrived in Utah between 1847 and 1850. Further research is needed to determine his identity and the year and name of the pioneer company with which he came to Utah. The name "David P. James" does not appear on any census record.
In 1852 he was living in the Utah Palmyra Ward, which became the Spanish Fork Ward.
