Although Alfred's family came in the John Smith (1860) wagon company, evidence seems to support that he traveled in the Robison (1860) handcart company. The Handcart Veterans Association scrapbook, folder 7, states that he came in the Robison company. Also, Alfred is not listed with his family on the John Smith (1860) company roster, which suggests that he was not traveling with them. Henry Jeager's reminiscences list his name as "Albert Gunn."
