Evidence that he came in 1856 is confirmed in information found in 1857 Church financial records. He traveled with his wife, Sarah, and sister, Jane. Several years later, he was one of the teamsters from Ogden that assisted in an out-and-back company.
He sailed to America in 1856 on the ship Horizon.
