Captain's records indicate Brunton was traveling alone, as he purchased only one adult food ration, and that he left the company at O'Fallon's Bluff. It is uncertain if he joined another company at that point or if he continued his journey alone.
It is possible that this man was John Brunton (birth date 7 November 1836), who died in Salt Lake City in 1918, but further research is needed to verify this.
