Circumstantial evidence from emigration and church records proves that Clegg traveled to Utah in 1852. He crossed the Atlantic on the ship George W. Bourne to New Orleans with three women: Sarah Clegg (age 67), Kitty Clegg (age 33) and Sally Clegg (age 27). Their intended destination was Utah Territory. The fate of the three women is unknown; but John was re-baptized on 6 November 1852 at Salt Lake City by a Thomas Taylor. According to the 1852 Bishop's Report both men lived in the Salt Lake City 15th Ward.
Additional research is needed to identify the name of the pioneer company with which he crossed the plains.
