Horne Company,  Well I feel really dumb. after reading further I answered my own question.
            Leaving Liverpool, they sailed 28 March 1857, taking passage on the ship “George Washington”, with 616 members.  He came to America with J.P. Parks as leader of the company and with him came his wife and two daughters and landed in Boston six weeks later.
            He and his family left Boston, Massachusetts, 2 May 1859, going to Florence Nebraska, now known as Omaha Nebraska.  Again he was called to preside over a branch of the church in Omaha Nebraska.  He and his family left that city 9 July 1861 with 350 members and 62 wagons and came to Utah with the first company with Joseph Horne arriving in Salt Lake City Utah 13 September 1861 settling in Farmington, Davis, Utah where he made his home.  He was made a teacher in Sunday School which he held until the time of his death from 1865 to 1870.
