Family home Weber County, Utah.

Began working as apprentice in shipyard at fifteen years of age after having received common school education and continued at this trade seven years. His father had preceded him to America and he, likewise, turned his all into money and on March 21, 1860, set sail for New York City. Reached St. Louis May 15, 1861. Joined a company of immigrants who were starting to Utah, arriving in Salt Lake City September 8, 1861, and locating at Ogden the same year. There, after much hard labor, with the characteristic energy for which he was noted, he placed his family in comfortable circumstances. Soon after arriving there he decided the teachings and principles of the Mormon faith were so entirely contrary to his idea and belief that he withdrew from this church and never had anything further to do with it. However, he took an active part in developing and building up that section of the west. He took up a homestead just west of Ogden, making this his permanent home. Helped to erect the first schoolhouse built in this section, and labored incessantly in the upbuilding of the industrial life of Ogden. He died in September, 1894, and his wife passed away four years later. His son, George Sewell, was drowned November 30, 1861, while fording the Weber river with a yoke of oxen. Of the three remaining sons none ever had any connection with the Mormon church, and like their father, were opposed to the teachings of that faith.

His early training was amid the scenes and vicissitudes incident to his father’s martyrdom and the driving of the Latter-day Saints to the Rocky mountains from Nauvoo, Illinois. With his mother he left Nauvoo in 1846 when only 8 years old and drove an oxteam across the state (then territory) of Iowa to Council Bluffs. The following year he drove an oxteam from the Missouri river to Salt Lake valley, enduring all the hardships of the journey over the plains and barren country intervening, and performing much labor that was required of the men. His opportunities for schooling were limited, and his early education was chiefly acquired from his mother. She left him an orphan at the age of 14 years. In 1854 he went to the Hawaiian Islands on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, where he remained four years, mastering the native tongue. After returning in 1858 he officiated as sergeant-at-arms in the Utah territorial legislature (1858-59), and upon its adjournment went to England with his cousin, Samuel H. born Smith, there laboring in the ministry. In 1864, after his return from England, he again went to Hawaii and continued his ecclesiastical labors. Upon returning to Utah he served as a member of the Salt Lake City municipal council and as a member of the territorial legislature, and in 1882 was president of the legislative council. He presided over the constitutional convention held in Utah in 1882, but was debarred as a legislator by the Edmund’s law. He served eight years as a clerk in the historian’s office and was active in church work, serving as a missionary for the church and in various positions in Davis and Salt Lake stakes of Zion. He went on a second mission to Great Britain in 1874, and on a third mission in 1877. He was ordained an apostle July 1, 1866, and became a member of the council of the twelve in 1867. In 1880 he was chosen to be second counselor to President John Taylor and also served as counselor to President Wilford Woodruff and later to President Lorenzo Snow. Following the death of the latter he was sustained as president of the church, which office he now holds.
