About George Matthews

Mormon Pioneer Overland Travel, 1847–1868

Matthews, George

Birth Date: 16 Dec. 1846 Death Date: 6 Apr. 1887 Gender: Male Age: 7 Company: 1847-1868 (Unknown Year of Travel)

Pioneer Information: The Matthews family came to Utah in either 1854 or 1855. They likely came in 1854, the year they sailed to America. But the first documentation to place them in Utah is a child born in July 1856 prior to that season's emigration. Further research is needed to narrow the year of their travel.
