Wordless Wednesday - platter brought by wagon train from New York to Illinois 1857

On Thanksgiving, November 1856, was this serving platter used? Who were the other families that traveled by wagon with the Elisha T. COUCH family? The families traveled from Oneida County, New York to LaSalle County, Illinois arriving January 1857.  This plate is in the MOREY family collection. Family tradition is that it survived the wagon ride.
