His surname appears as "Gails" on the 1870 Utah Census, and his wife Jane appears with him. However, we have not been able to determine when she came to Utah. She is not listed with him on the 1868 Colorado ship manifest, and he is listed as purchasing only one ration's worth of food in the memorandum book.
Birth date listed was found in a personal, online family history record (such as FamilyTree, Ancestry, or My Heritage), without any accompanying documentation. Further research is needed to verify its accuracy.
