William's name does not appear on the 1856 Utah census, and the first documentation to place him in Utah is the 1860 Utah Census. That census was taken on 9 July 1860, which was prior to the arrival of that season's emigration. Thus, it is likely that he came to Utah between 1856 and 1859. Further research is needed to confirm the date of his arrival in Utah and the name of the pioneer company with which he traveled.
After arriving in Utah he married Rhoda White, a widow who came to Utah from England in 1855 with her three children. William and Rhoda's names appear on the 1860 Utah census, along with Rhoda's children from her first marriage.
His year of birth is calculated from the 1860 census, which shows his age as 53.
FamilySearch shows his name as "Jones William, which is incorrect. He is listed as "William Jones" in the 1860 Utah census.
