Raised a crop and hauled wheat to Camp Floyd for U. S. soldiers on contract of President Brigham Young. This paid their immigration transportation. Moved to Richfield March, 1866. 128 claims of 20 acres each were distributed among the settlers, and they surveyed and built with spade and shovel a canal, nine miles long and nine to twelve feet wide, to irrigate this land; the first water reached Richfield March 22d. Food was very scarce, the nearest grist mill being at Manti, so wheat was ground in a hand mill. Tea was $15 per pound and money almost unknown, taxes and salaries being paid in produce. In 1866 the Indians started their depredations, killed many settlers, drove the people in from Glen Cove and other outlying settlements, necessitating placing the. town under guard, as also the herds, and men had to work together in squads for protection. In April, 1867, Richfield was abandoned, and the settlement moved to Fountain Green. Missionary to Denmark in 1871, and visited his father. Had charge of Hjorring branch of the church at Osth; traveling elder in Aalborg. Returned to Richfield June 22, 1872, bringing with him his youngest brother. Set apart first counselor to William H. Seegmiller April, 1877; ordained bishop of first ward July 25, 1877, by Erastus Snow, remaining bishop until 1894, when the wards were united, and he was set apart as first counselor to Bishop Theodore Brandley, which position with that of acting bishop he held until March 25, 1899, when he was ordained high councilor, until September 18, 1910. He was made patriarch September 24, 1899; member prayer circle 28 years; superintendent Sunday school first ward three years, released on account of polygamous prosecution; arrested for unlawful cohabitation May 24, 1888, sentenced to four months in state penitentiary and a fine of $200; again arrested August, 1892, and discharged; again on October 11, 1894, sentenced to 30 days in penitentiary; again October 21, 1899, and fined $160 by Judge W. M. McCarty; all of these offenses were for “unlawful cohabitation.” Is the father of 22 children, 14 of whom are living and appear in this genealogy.
