Thomas Charles Davis Howell
Thomas initially traveled to the Salt Lake valley in 1847, but after returning east for his family he in 1852 captained his own company, bringing his family and additional members of the church to Utah. His death date is from a document found in his "memories" section on Family Tree wherein the government pension office dropped him from his military pension.
