      Conquerors of the West, Sons of the Utah Pioneers, pp 1373

      Arrived in [Salt Lake] Valley: 11 Sep 1850

      John worked in a lumber yard and assisted his father in building the first house in Kamas. He learned to plow, helping his father father whenever needed. He only had three months formal schooling, but he became a well-educated man.

      When he was 20, he taught school in Kamas, where he met his future wife, one of his students. He helped his father by hauling wood from Lamb's Canyon. He also trapped beaver in Beaver Creek.

      He followed bands of Indians who stole horses and returned them to the owners on several occasions. He was a veteran of the Black Hawk Indian War. He was active in public affairs as a justice of the peace, school trustee, notary public and first mayor of Kamas, and other positions.

      John was a farmer and stock raiser. He dug canals, built beidges and saw mills, herde cattle and most important, he made sure his children were well educated. He remained in the church serving as ward clerk for many years.

      When he was 50 he developed kidney problems as a result of being kicked by an ox when he was younger. This was the cause of his death.

      Andrew Jenson, Encyclopedic History of the Church:

      MARION WARD, Summit Stake, Summit Co., Utah, was organized May 1, 1909, from the north part of the Kamas Ward and the south part of Oakley Ward. It contains a fertile farming district extending across Kamas Valley from the mountains on the east to the mountains on the west. The ward extends north to the Weber River and south to Kamas. The meeting house, a concrete building, erected in 1913-1914 at a cost of $7,000, stands on the east side of the main road running north and south through the ward and is about three miles north of Kamas. Seth C. Jones was the first Bishop of Marion Ward. He was succeeded in April, 1913, by Joseph E. Nelson, who was succeeded in December, 1913, by Cornelius S. Green, who was succeeded in 1915 by George Boyes Andrus, who was succeeded in 1916 by Joseph Boyes Andrus, who presided Dec. 31, 1930, on which date the ward had 188 members, including 40 children.

      With regard to your request to add John Lambert's family to the 1850 Lorenzo Young company in the pioneer database on the Church web site:

      We had the Lamberts in the 1850 unidentified company category with a note that they might have traveled in the Young company. However the John Lambert 1893 statement proves that they were in the Hawkins company. If he traveled "in the company of Thomas Johnson," then he was in the Hawkins company because Johnson was a captain of fifty in that company. I am including the portion of his statement referring to his crossing the plains on our web site, too.

      Thomas Johnson Company

      Nelson, William Goforth, Reminiscences, in Journal History of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 9 Sept. 1850, 6-7.

      Full Text:

      Two companies of Saints arrived in G. S. L. City. William Goforth Nelson, who was with one of these companies wrote as follows: <(Thomas Johnson Co)>

      It was on the 8th day of May, 1850, that we started from Mt. Pisgah to Council Bluffs and thence crossed the plains to Salt Lake Valley. We started with two good wagons and good ox teams. We also had a number of cows. We traveled pretty much alone until we had come four miles west of Council Bluffs, where we found a camp of Saints, and on June 4th the camp was organized with Thomas Johnson as captain.

      The following day we were ready to start on our journey west. There were fifty wagons in the company. My brother Price met us at Council Bluffs and came to the Valley with us, but Hyrum came in another company later the same year. Our journey was quite a pleasant one. We had good luck, no Indian trouble whatever, and only three deaths occurred in our company on the trip. The first one of these was a woman, the wife of a man named Wilkinson. She was buried on the west side of the mouth of "Ash Hollow". The second was my cousin, Dr. Thomas Goforth, who was buried a little east of "Chimney Rock". The next, a few day later, was a Brother Borum. Melvin Ross and I dug the grave and buried it. These persons were buried in graves made with a vault in the bottom. The bodies were wrapped in a quilt, blanket or wagon cover, whichever could best be spared and would then be placed in the vault; timbers put across and hay spread over and then covered with dirt. When we were at Sweet Water, my Father contracted the mountain fever from which he never fully recovered. While on the plains we saw a great many herds of Buffalo. When they were on their trails leading to watering places, they would not get out of our way, and if they were trailing across our road, we would be compelled to stop our teams until they would have time to pass. But if they were feeding we could not get near them.

      We reached Salt Lake City, Sept. 9, 1850, and camped on the public square for two days.
