Miles Park Romney
His birth date is confirmed by the missionary register.
The Romney family traveled to the Salt Lake Valley with the Edward Hunter Company in 1850. The family included Miles and Elizabeth Gaskell, and their children Elizabeth, Sarah, Joseph Gaskell, Brigham, Miles Park, Hiram Thomas Gaskell, and Mary Ann.
Miles was rebaptized in salt Lake City on 26 October 1851.
At the end of a mission Miles Park returned home with the Miner G. Atwood Company in 1865. Peter Anton Nielson lists him as Lewis Romney. There is no such person, and all references say it was Miles Park Romney.
