Washington Bolivar Rogers
He was in the Council Point, Iowa Branch in 1847. Evidence from land records proves he traveled to Utah in 1848. At some point, he continued on to California, because he is seen on his return trip in 1857 with the Thatcher Company.
The name of his wife, Sarah Jane Snell, appears with him on the 1860 Utah census, and may have traveled to Utah with him in the 1857 Thatcher Company. However, we do not have a roster for that company, so we will need a primary source in order to add her name with him in the Thatcher company. Her name now appears in the 1847-1868 Unknown Company list.
