Samuel Jefferies Holbrook
Samuel's obituary indicates that he, his mother, and two sisters traveled to the Valley in 1863. It also indicates that he crossed the plains again in 1866 as a teamster for an out and back company. Further research is needed to identify the two companies he traveled with, both in 1863 and 1866.
