Pioneer Information: Evidence from emigration and genealogical records proves that the Taylor family traveled to Utah in 1853. They sailed to America in 1853, and the first documentation to place them in Utah is the birth of a child 7 June 1854 in Provo, Utah, which was prior to the arrival of that season's emigration. Further research is needed to determine the name of the company they traveled with.
