      John came to Utah September 11, 1850 in the Lorenzo Young [sic] company. [See immigration notes] John was a member of the 9th quorum of Seventies. He settled at Salt Lake city in 1850, moved to Kamas in 1861. At both places he took an active part in the upbuilding of the country. Member of Nauvoo Legion; Echo canyon war veteran; worked on Salt Lake Temple.
      ----------------------------------
      Resided in the 11th Ward of Salt Lake City, 1852 - 1861

      From: Encyclopedic History of the LDS Church:
      SALT LAKE CITY 11TH WARD, Ensign Stake, Salt Lake Co., Utah, consists (1930) of the Latter-day Saints residing in that part of Salt Lake City which is bounded on the north by South Temple St..., east by 12th East and Elizabeth streets ..., south by 3rd South St ..., and west by 6th East St.

      The 11th Ward was one of the nineteen ecclesiastical wards into which Salt Lake City was organized in February, 1849. John Lytle was chosen as Bishop. He acted without counselors from 1849 to July 13, 1851, when the ward was more fully organized...

      The early settlers of the 11th Ward rented a log cabin for $2.50 a month to be used for school and ward purposed, which served until an adobe school house, 20x30 feet, was erected during the winter of 1854-1855. A rock meeing house was erected in 1873-1875, which served for meeting and school purposed until 1814... The 11th Ward belonged to the Salt Lake Stake of Zion until 1904, when it became part of the Ensign Stake.

      KAMAS

      Andrew Jenson, Encyclopedic History of the Church…
      KAMAS WARD, Summit Stake, Summit Co., Utah, consists of Latter-day Saints residing in the central part of the Kamas Prairie. The town of Kamas is located on Beaver Creek, close to the mountains on the east side of the valley, 14 miles east of Park City, 17 miles northeast of Heber City (in Wasatch Co.) and 25 miles southeast of Coalville, the stake headquarters.

      Kamas Prairie or Rhodes Valley, as it is sometimes called, was settled by Latter-day Saints in the spring of 1860. Among these settlers were Thomas Rhodes (in whose honor the valley was named) and George W. Brown, who with their two families were the only ones who spent the winter of 1860-1861 in the district. They had a considerable amount of stock, and at that time there was much danger to their herd from depredations of bears and other wild animals which roved in the vicinity. It also became necessary in 1866 to erect a fort as a protection against hostile Indians, near the present center of Kamas. Other settlers joined the first-comers and Thomas Rhodes (affectionately known as "Father" Rhodes) had general supervision over the settlement. In 1861 Wm. G. Russell was appointed [p387] presiding Elder. He was succeeded in 1866 by Peter Carney, who was succeeded in 1867 by Ward E. Pack, who was succeeded in 1868 by Willet S. Harder. In 1869 the saints at Kamas erected a substantial bridge across the Weber River, which was a great benefit to the settlement and to the surrounding country. In 1870 Bishop Samuel Frank Atwood was called to preside at Kamas, although no ward organization at that time had been effected, but on July 9, 1877, Kamas was organized as a ward with Samuel F. Atwood as Bishop. He acted in this capacity until 1901, when he was succeeded by Dan Lambert, who was succeeded in 1908 by Merrit Newton Pack, who was succeeded in 1916 by George Christensen, who was succeeded in 1920 by Vincent Shepherd, who was succeeded in 1924 by Lorenzo Sargent, who was succeeded in 1928 by Oscar Edwin Eskelson, who presided Dec. 31, 1930, on which date the ward had 406 members, including 91 children. The total population of the Kamas Precinct in 1930 was 558, of whom 491 resided on the townsite.
      ---------------------------

      Andrew Jenson, Encyclopedic History of the Church:

      PEOA WARD, Summit Stake, Summit Co., Utah, consists of the Latter-day Saints residing in the village of Peoa and a number of scattered settlers along the Weber River. The Weber River makes a short bend from a westerly to a northerly direction about one mile south of Peoa, and the settlement is located in the bend of the river thus formed. The ward meeting house, a rock building, is located about 15 miles southeast of Coalville and 12 miles northeast of Park City.
      It is claimed that in 1857 Judge Wm. W. Phelps, with others, came on to the grounds where Peoa now stands with a view to making a settlement there and that Bro. Phelps drove stakes into the ground and named the place Pe-oh-a, the Indian word for marry. This name (Peoa) was retained by the later settlers. In 1860 several families came, put up log houses and took up their residence there. David O. Rideout was the first presiding Elder. He was succeeded in 1862 by Abraham Marchant, who was shortly afterwards ordained to the office of a Bishop and presided over the southern part of Summit County, including Peoa, Rockport, Wanship and Kamas, as well as acting as local Bishop of Peoa. When the Summit Stake of Zion was organized [p650] in 1877 Abraham Marchant was continued as Bishop of Peoa and acted in that capacity until his death, Oct. 6, 1881. In 1882 he was succeeded by Stephen Walker, who was succeeded in 1901 by Arthur Maxwell, jun., who was succeeded in 1916 by Abraham Franklin Marchant, who was succeeded in 1923 by James A. Maxwell, who was succeeded in 1925 by Hyrum A. Jorgensen, who presided Dec. 31, 1930, on which date the ward had a membership of 190, including 45 children. In 1930 the Peoa Precinct had a total population of 211.

      Notes: SECOND COMPANY -- North America, about 200 souls. Saturday, September 5th, 1840, Apostles Brigham Young and Willard Richards went from Manchester to Liverpool, and in the evening organized a company of Saints bound for New York, by choosing Elder Theodore Turley, a returning missionary, to preside, with six counselors, among whom was Elder William Clayton, one of the earliest English converts. Apostles Brigham Young and Willard Richards went on board the North America on Monday the 7th, and remained with the Saints on board over night. On Tuesday morning, about nine o'clock, the vessel was tugged out by a steamer. The Apostles accompanied the emigrants about fifteen miles and then left them in good spirits. The company had a prosperous voyage to New York, where they arrived in the beginning of October, and from there they continued the journey to Buffalo, New York. Owing to the expensiveness of the route many of the emigrants fell short of means to complete the journey to Nauvoo, they therefore divided at Buffalo, a part going to settle in and around Kirtland, Ohio, while the balance, under the leadership of Theodore Turley, continued the journey to Nauvoo, to which place Joseph the Prophet states he had the pleasure of welcoming about one hundred of them, about the middle of October, 1841.

      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. I don't know why his daughter, Elena, stated that her father came in the Young company, but John Lambert's statement is a much more contemporaneous record. In instances when we have a conflict in documentation, we are much more apt to accept his word than the word of a daughter [Elena] who didn't actually go on the journey, but was born 13 years afterwards.

      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.

      John Lambert's statement:
      "[I], John Lambert, first heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints preached by Frances Moon (a missionary) in England [in the] year 1837. [My sister, two brothers and I] emigrated in the fall of 1840 on the sail ship North America, [a] 32 day voyage. [We] landed in New York, took [a] steamboat on the Hudson River 160 miles to Buffalo, then took the Lakes to Chicago, 1000 miles. Then went by wagon (horses, I think) to Dison's Ferry, 110 miles to Rock River. Then [we] built a flat boat and sailed down Rock River to the Mississippi, about 150 miles, then down the Mississippi River to Commerce (Nauvoo), remaining there until the spring of 1846.

      "Then [we] went to Saint Joseph [Missouri] by ox team, then to Jackson County [Missouri] by team
      to visit my first wife's (Adelia Groesbeck) folks in Sugar Creek, Iowa. [We] visited my brother,
      Richard, in Hancock County, Illinois, returned to Jackson County, remained there until in the spring
      of 1850. Then [we] went to Bethleham, north 350 miles, to the Missouri River, traveled with ox team. Then [we] started for Salt Lake City, Utah, with ox team in the company of Thomas Johnson. [We] arrived in Salt Lake City, Utah, 11 Sep 1850. [We] lived there eleven years in the second ward and fenced the first lot in this ward. [We] moved to Kamas, Summit County, in the spring of 1861, April. I had been there six or eight months before."
