John was a member of a Mormon Battalion sick detachment. After he returned to Winter Quarters, he proceeded on to the valley with his family as Captain of 2nd Ten in the James Pace Company. Though his wife and children are not specifically documented in the company, they are in Utah with him at the time of the 1850 census so it is assumed they traveled with him.
