He was baptized March 9, 1835, gathered with the saints to Ray county, Mo., in 1836, and moved to Daviess and Caldwell counties. Together with the rest of the saints he was expelled from Missouri in the winter of 1838–39. Next he settled in Illinois in 1840 and there passed through the difficulties and persecutions which the saints had to encounter in that State. He migrated to Utah in 1852 and was ordained a Bishop and set apart to preside over the Spanish Fork Ward in 1856. This office he filled at the time of his death, which occurred April 10, 1860, at Spanish Fork, after a lingering illness. He was 52 years and 2 days old when he died, and left a large family to mourn his loss. He carried with him to the grave the affections and confidence of all the members of his Ward.   From
