William Worthington Lassengree Smith, Bridgeport

I am looking for information on a William Worthington Lassengree Smith, born in Bridgeport, Connecticut on April 22, 1821. He married Anna Scott Evans Smith (born in Evansville, Ill.) on May 19, 1845. They came to California from Illinois by wagon train in 1853, via the Nobles Trail, and settled in the Shingletown area. Smith was 31 years old when he led the wagon train without mishap from Illinois to California. They left old Fort Kearny, Alton, Illinois on March 22, 1853 and arrived in the Sacramento Valley on August 8, 1853.
