The company passenger list in a newspaper article in the Deseret News (26 September 1866) lists William, his wife, and four children (Elizabeth Jane, Sarah Ann, Emily Rosine, Mary Ellen). However, the company roster in William Chipman's notebook states that William was the head of house of five persons, meaning that one of the family members was incorrectly unaccounted for in the company roster.
