George Dixon Snell
The Snell family traveled in their own little company to the Valley, leaving from Wisconsin. At some point, they continued on to California because in 1857, they are seen coming east, back to Utah in the Thatcher Company.
The obituary of William Smardus Snell confirms the family's travel to Utah in 1854.
