Hannah Williams Rickards
Uriah Rickards arrived in New York on 31 May 1865 via the ship Belle Wood. His family (wife, Hannah and children, Lorenzo, Ann, and John) followed him the next year on the Arkwright. Both Ann and John died prior to the departure of the overland company, leaving only Uriah, Hannah, and Lorenzo to cross the plains in 1866. This is confirmed by the notation in the Thompson company records that Uriah purchased three adult food rations for this part of the journey.
Birth year extrapolated from age given on ship records. Further research is needed to determine exact birth and death dates.
Many later sources spell the family name as "Richards."
