The Liverpool and Great Western Steamship Company, known commonly as the Guion Line, was a British passenger service that operated the Liverpool-Queenstown-New York route from 1866 to 1894. By 1870 the Guion Line ranked third in the delivery of immigrants to New York, with 27,054 steerage passengers, but only 1,115 first class.

The Wyoming was built in 1870 and in service until 1893

The Wyoming made 64 trips to New York. This page is for the 19 April 1879 - 30 April 1879 voyage. There were 172 passengers, all LDS converts and immigrants from England, Ireland, Sweden, and Norway. The church kept detailed notes about the passengers, the amount needed for passage, and their destination.

"DEPARTURE OF THE FIRST COMPANY OF THE SEASON. -- The first installment of this season's emigration left Liverpool, on the Guion S. S. Wyoming, on Saturday, April 19th, for the land of Zion. Early on the afternoon of that day, a meeting of the elders on board was called by President Budge, and held in one of the saloons of the vessel. Besides the missionaries released to return home with the company, there were present, President Budge and Elders John Nicholson, Francis Cope, James L. Buinting, George H. Taylor and Henry Rolapp."
