Elizabeth J Walker
At this time, Elizabeth J Walker the daughter of (William and Elizabeth Russell Walker) has been placed in the William Walling Company. Family tradition from Family Tree at FamilySearch.org states that Elizabeth married John James on 19 November 1860, which indicates that Elizabeth traveled to Utah sometime before the above mentioned date. Elizabeth traveled with her parents to the United States aboard the Underwriter (1860). However, she was not listed with them in the Daniel Robinson 1860 1st Handcart company roster. Elizabeth J Walker's age and the age of the Elizabeth Walker listed in the Walling Company roster are about the same. Also, Elizabeth J Walker was not located in the database in any other company.
Birth date listed reflects family tradition from Family Tree. More research is needed to confirm it. Death date is confirmed by an newspaper article in the Deseret News (1 January 1868).
