About William Lewis Perkins

Mormon Pioneer Overland Travel, 1847–1868

Perkins, William Lewis

Birth Date: 18 June 1819 Death Date: 7 Jan. 1899 Gender: Male Age: 30 Company: Warren Foote Company (1850)

Pioneer Information: The Perkins family is mistakenly recorded as traveling in the 1848 Brigham Young company on a typescript non–contemporary list in Journal History (Supp. after 31 Dec. 1848, p. 7). The best evidence places them in the 1850 Foote company including the fact that the family was not on the list of those who received property in Salt Lake Valley in 1848.
