English pioneer families in San Bernardino

In 1857, eleven English families traveled from Salt Lake Valley, Utah Territory to San Bernardino, California, arriving in May, and camped for a time along the Santa Ana River. They were seceding from the Mormon church. The heads of these families were: Captain James Singleton, Isaac Bessant, J. Rebbeck, W. Watts, W. Whitby, Ambrose Hunt, Henry Goodcell, Sr., J. Whitworth, George Cooley, Sidney Nee and a Mr. Williams. Several of these families appear as neighbors in the 1860 US census for San Bernardino.
If anyone has information about their journey from Utah to California, I'd like to hear from you. Or if you have an interest in any of these families, I'll be glad to share what little I know. Henry Goodcell, Sr., was my great great grandfather.
