William David Pritchett
Though only heads of household are listed on the company records, the documentation that William purchased 3 1/2 adult food rations indicate that his wife (Margaret) and three small children (Mary Elizabeth, Louisa, and Hannah) accompanied him on the overland journey. It is likely they also brought an infant daughter named Cynthia, but further research is needed to confirm that.
