Josiah W. Hawkins
Journal History and Deseret News sources both indicate the person in this company was "Josiah W. Hawkins." The Deseret News specifies that he was traveling with his family. It is only the James Pett autobiography that says that his given name was "Joseph."
It is quite possible that this individual is the same as the "J. W. Hawkins" that led his own small company this same year. It is possible the Hawkins Company left on its own as a small, independent company, and joined up with the Peterson company at some point in their journey. Further research is needed to confirm this.
