  • Notes 
    • PARENTS: Alternative John Long and Eleanor/Ellen Walker (IGI), submitted by Thomas Woolley.

      MIGRATION: There is a 'John Walker' listing in Elder John M. Kay's Company on the Hudson. The Hudson left London 3 Jun 1864, arrived at New York City 19 Jul 1864. The company then departed Brooklyn and arrived at Wyoming, Nebraska 2 Aug 1864. Due to the fact that John traveled solo, it is difficult to verify whether this is in fact him. If in fact he was present in the John M. Kay Company, John Kay is identified in the Warren S. Snow Company from Wyoming, Nebraska to Salt Lake City, Utah.

      OBITUARY: Searched Salt Lake Tribune 1-10 Oct 1886 and Deseret News 6 and 13 Oct 1886 without identifying a record pertaining to John Walker.
