George John Taylor
He is the son of John and Leonora Taylor. He initially traveled to the Valley in 1847 and was re-baptized by his father in the Salt Lake Valley on 5 December 1847. In 1862 he was a returning missionary from England when he again crossed the plains. Further research is needed to identify the name of the company that he traveled with on that return trip.
