The Provost family traveled to Utah in 1856. However, at some point they headed back East. Luke Provost died in Iowa in 1863, and evidence from biographical and church (Perpetual Emigrating Fund) records proves that the rest of the Provost family returned to Utah in 1863. Further research is needed to determine the name of the company they traveled with.
