Cyrus H. Wheelock
After marrying his wife, Mary Ann Broomhead Wheelock, in England, he sailed to America in 1848 on the ship Carnatic. Mary Ann came to America on the ship Ellen Maria with her daughter, Kate Ethlind Wheelock, and her father, William Broomhead, in 1852.
Cyrus initially traveled to the Salt Lake Valley as Captain of the Cyrus H. Wheelock Company in 1853. However, he crossed the plains again in 1856 as a returning missionary. Immediately after arriving, he turned around and went back out to participate as one of the rescuers that were sent out to assist the members of the Church stranded in Wyoming.
Andrew Jackson Wheelock was a brother of Cyrus H. Wheelock.
