I am interested in information about an Anthony Ivins LDS Pioneer company that left Tom's River, Ocean, New Jersey.
I found this:
The "History of Toms River" also tells us: "In 1852 many of the Mormon converts in Ocean County began to prepare for their departure to Salt Lake City, Utah, to join others of their faith. William Applegate spent the winter of 1852 making wagons to be used in transporting the household goods and personal belongings of the Mormons across the plains. They gathered in a caravan in the woods on Main Street on April 1, 1853 to start the trek westward."
So far I know that William Huggins and Emeline Aker Huggins, Israel Ivins and Anthony Ivins and William Applegate were in this wagon train. They are not noted on the Mormon Pioneer Overland Travel, 1847–1868 database. I am looking for other people who came with this company.
Can anyone help with this puzzle?
