Family home Fillmore, Utah.

John A. Ray and family arrived in Fillmore, Utah, in the spring of 1854, where they found about 20 families who had built a mud wall 10 feet high around 50 acres of ground for the protection of their families against Indians. These Indians were known at that time as the Walker band. After the death of Walker, however, the notorious Black Hawk dominated the tribes for many years. These Indians were very numerous and committed many depredations, stealing stock and killing many people. John A. Ray was the first Indian agent in this part of the country, getting his appointment in 1858. This gave his son, Joseph E. Ray, a splendid opportunity to learn the ways of the red man. He became at a very early date an expert with the bow and arrow and sported with them in all their pastimes; in fact, almost lived with them until he was 15 years of age. He developed into a splendid shot and a good horseman; in fact, was as wild as the Indians themselves. Later he joined the state militia and continued in the service for four years and until honorably discharged. During these early days the white boys and Indian papooses had many battles, using slings for weapons. That with his early experience with the bow and arrow, associated with a natural inclination to the use of firearms, was responsible for the fact that he developed into an expert shot, and in later years he killed a great amount of game of all kinds; probably 3,000 deer. As a young man he was engaged in the cattle business, and he made two trips; one to Abilene, Kansas, in 1870, the other to Cheyenne, Wyoming, in 1877.

After he grew to manhood he assisted greatly in ridding the country of many outlaws, among whom were the “Ney” and “Ben Tasker” gangs. Following closely upon the days of Indian outbreaks came a period when the early settlers had nearly as much trouble with the white outlaws. Among some of the thrilling experiences in which he figured conspicuously was the capture of eight highwaymen about January 20, 1883. These outlaws had held up a Southern Pacific train at Montello, Utah, about 100 miles west from Ogden. They first captured the station, stampeding eight Chinese section men who fled into the hills and froze to death. This was one of the coldest periods in the history of the state, the thermometer reaching 40 degrees below zero. These highwaymen flagged the incoming express train and undertook to rob it. The messenger, however, barricaded himself in his car, fought several hours holding the robbers at bay, while they were riddling his car with bullets. When the incoming train came in sight they retreated in a southerly direction. The next day they were pursued by the sheriff with a posse, who were waylaid and captured by the robbers and their horses and firearms, etc., taken away, and they were privileged to return home afoot. On their retreat through the country the robbers committed a number of other crimes. At Deep Creek they robbed the Devine store, and also entered a woman’s house and robbed her, who soon after died from fright.

About this time, J. E. Ray was making a farm at Deseret. One day six men, heavily armed, rode into the town of Deseret, and from their general demeanor it was immediately assumed by the citizens that there was something unusual in their visit. W. A. Ray, an older brother, was at that time running a store in the small settlement, and he informed his brother Joseph that these strangers were buying large quantities of cartridges, and that this action on their part looked very suspicious. These men made arrangements with the people of Deseret, by which they were to take care of their horses on the range. This, however, was only a ruse, and given for the purpose of hiding their identity. It developed later that they had prepared a strong fortification in the top of the mountain range which lay to the northwest of this community. John Sharp was a leading railroad man in the territory, and knowing that J. E. Ray and G. W. Crapper had at different times captured outlaws, wired them to be on the alert, and described these strangers. Messrs. Ray and Crapper knew immediately that he had reference to the suspicious men in question. They at once organized a party to go out and intercept them or attack them in their mountain fortification.

This party left Deseret at one o’clock on the morning of January 20, 1883, and rode about 70 miles in a northwesterly direction. As they approached the mountains they stopped and sent two of their men, Edward Craft and Charles Webb, on a scouting expedition. These scouts were captured by the outlaws and held until the next day, when they were relieved by a rescuing party. “The party” traveled until sunset in a northerly direction when they saw two men riding up a long draw or hollow. Upon the first sight of these men they dropped back under cover, hitched their horses and cautiously slipped over the hills to a point of advantage. As “the party” came to the hill top they looked down into the hollow below, and at a distance of 250 yards again saw these two men. The pursuing party was then directly south from, and above them. They called to them to throw up their hands. Instead of surrendering, however, they slipped off their horses, dropped their guns across the saddles and opened fire. There was a lively exchange of shots for a few minutes, the result being that both robbers were badly wounded and their horses killed. At this juncture two more outlaws came in sight, and they also were captured. The posse was then about seven miles from the fortification, and the weather extremely cold, it being 20 degrees below zero. They could not make a fire, for fear the four uncaptured men now in the stronghold might see the smoke and escape. They waited until twelve o’clock at night for a detachment from their party, to get a wagon and return so that the wounded men might be sent to the railroad. At three o’clock in the morning, the pursuing party was re-enforced by 15 other fighting men from all over the country. They then proceeded to the fortification, seven miles distant, and there they captured the remainder of the gang. These men were all sent to Carson City prison for from 12 to 15 years.

He was one of the pioneer movers in the opening up of lands by means of reservoir irrigation systems, and took an active part in purchasing and cultivating large tracts of dry farm land. He has also assisted in developing mines at Rico, Colorado, and in other places.

It has always been claimed and tacitly acknowledged by authorities, that he was really the first of the advance party of “Mormon” pioneers to gaze upon the beauties of the great Salt Lake Valley, on the 23d day of July, 1847. He was hunting for some of their driving stock that had strayed away during the night. Arriving on the top of the mountain, which afterward was called Little Mountain, he beheld that strange and wonderful body of water. Great Salt Lake. On looking back toward the camp, he is said to have discerned Orson Pratt coming up toward his view-place on the crest of the mountain. When Pratt came up, the two stood and gazed upon and admired the exquisite panorama spread out in a marvelous scenic expanse. He then went on and drove in the stock, and with them returned to camp. He afterward found that Pratt had had Thomas Bullock record him as the first to see the valley. The characteristic of the man was duty before glory or notoriety, and the incident seemed forgotten, as proper credit was never rendered. It was always said that Heber Chase Kimball acknowledged that Redden was the first of the advance company of “Mormons” to see the valley.

He staked and laid the overland route from Salt Lake City to California, and the Overland Stage Company “got away” with the road, but retained the same names he had christened the rivers, creeks, peaks, hills, fords and loitering places in that vast overland expanse until then practically unknown. The commerce of a great nation now rolls over this highway. He was at one time Justice of the peace in Tooele county, and three times at Summit county. He was US deputy marshal under Leonard Phillips and was known in all the pioneer camps as a bold and fearless man. He possessed and exhibited those traits of character which were essential to blazing a trail or performing the miracle of reclamation now greeting the tired eye of the traveler. He was a member of the 35th quorum seventies at the time of his demise, and had joined the church when very young. He was private detective and bodyguard to Joseph Smith, saving him from many serious and threatened troubles. He returned in 1847 to Winter Quarters. Justice of the peace in Tooele county, and in Summit county, Utah; deputy marshal under Leonard Phillips. Died August 30, 1891, Hoytsville, Utah.
