Evidence from church, newspaper, and genealogical records proves he traveled to Utah in 1851. He appeared on the 1850 Iowa census, enumerated in Oct. 1850. He was on the 1852 Bishop's Report. He received his endowments in Salt Lake in March 1852. These events narrow the window of his travel to Utah to 1851. Other family traditions claim that he came in the 1852 Uriah Curtis company, but that is incorrect. He could have only traveled to Utah in 1851. Surname is spelled "Elmore" in the PEF ledger.
His birth and death dates are confirmed by the inscription on his gravestone.
