Thomas Davis Giles
Later known with prominence as "The Blind Harpist," his family all began traveling in the Bunker company, but his family halted in Florence while he continued on with the Bunker company. His family joined another company and followed behind him that same year. An infant daughter, Maria, died in Chicago and his wife and new-born daughter, Elizabeth, died on the trail. His surviving sons arrived in Salt Lake with the Hunt company under the care of Hannah Evans, who he would later marry.
