William Roberton Gallacher
William and his siblings crossed the Atlantic on the ship Colorado in 1868. A secondary source says they then traveled westward by railroad as far as they could and finished their journey to Salt Lake City by ox train, arriving on 5 September 1868, but William was not with them because he had been assigned to help herd cattle and arrived later. There were four companies that arrived in Salt Lake in September 1868, but we have no record of one arriving on 5th.
