Mormon Pioneer Overland Travel 1847–1868 Unknown Companies (1847-1868)

Age at departure: 24

Also Rescue Companies (1856)

Approximate age at departure: 27

When Brigham Young learned on October 4, 1856, that more than a thousand people in two handcart and two wagon companies would be arriving very late in the season, he began a rescue effort to help bring them to Salt Lake City. It involved hundreds of men, teams, and wagons. There is no single record of who went out on this rescue effort so the names of the men who participated in this act of charity comes from various sources.
