James Perkins Brooks
This may be the James Brooks who appears in a Deseret News [Weekly] article on February 8, 1851, page 204 and in the "Registry of Names Of Persons Residing In The Various Wards As To Bishop's Reports, Great Salt Lake City, December 28th, A.D. 1852." Church Ordinance records definitely place him in Utah by December 11, 1853, however. Further research is needed to identify the exact year he crossed the plains and the name of the pioneer company with which he traveled.
