- Death Date
Jane was baptized while in the Salt Lake City Seventh Ward on 30 October 1852, and again on 24 March 1854. The Seventh Ward records show her surname as "Johnson," and the Salt Lake Stake Record of Members has her surname listed as "Johnston." We have not been able to locate any further information regarding her. She does not appear on the 1850 Utah census under either name, so apparently she arrived in Utah by 1852. Her name does not appear on any ship record. We do not know of Johnson or Johnston was her married or maiden name. She would have been about 36 years old at the time of her 1852 baptism, so it is likely that she was married. Her birth date and place of birth, Priestley, Renfrewshire, Scotland, is confirmed by both baptism records.
Further research is needed to fully identify Jane, the year of her travel, and the name of the pioneer company with which she traveled to Utah.
