      BIOGRAPHY: "Alvah Jedathan, son of Alvah and Phoebe Houston was born 21 September 1831 at Northfield, Vermont. The family joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and moved to Nauvoo, Illinois. They were close neighbors to the Prophet Joseph Smith. The children of both families played together. Alvah was 13 years old when the prophet was martyred. He went with his father to meet the body of Joseph when it was taken from Carthage. Alvah came to Utah with his parents in October 1852 in the Captain Harmon Cutler company. He was acting Bishop of Midway Ward 1902-1903."
