Genealogical and church records confirm that the Davenport family arrived in Utah in 1850. Their son John was born in Iowa in January 1850, and Madora was rebaptized in Salt Lake City 23 May 1851, which was prior to the arrival of that season's emigration. Further research is needed to determine the name of the pioneer company they traveled to Utah with.
We know that the family left Utah for California by 1853 because of the birth of children there in 1853 and 1855. By 1857 they were back in Iowa, where another child was born.
Madora's gravestone shows her birth date as 18 April 1831, but the Salt Lake Stake Record of Members shows the date as 18 April 1832. We are using this date because she would have personally given her date of birth at the time of her rebaptism.
