Ransom Van Leuven
Traveled with his wife, Lucinda, and children. In 1850, the Van Leuven family was living in Missouri, according to census records. By 1860, they were located on the Utah census. His birth and death date come from a personal, online family history without any accompanying documentation. Further evidence is needed to prove their accuracy.
The family's travel to Utah in 1852 is confirmed by the obituary of Eliza Jane.
