Cogswell of the journey from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City between August 20 and November 15, 1870, by members of an acting troupe including Cogswell, E. B. Marden, Jared Carter and his wife Carrie, their two children, and Gedion Carter under the "Spiritual Influence" they received through a planchette.
