Matthew Bristow Wheelwright
Matthew and his family crossed the Atlantic on the ship Windermere in 1854. A daughter, Mary Jane, died in Kansas while en route to Utah. The family's travel to Utah is mentioned in the obituary of Joseph Farrar Wheelwright, a son. Additional research is needed to identify the name of the pioneer company with which they traveled.
