John Brown (1820 - 1896) Profile

John Brown

John Brown traveled with the Mississippi Saints as far as Fort Pueblo in Colorado, where they stopped for the winter. In the mean time, he returned to Mississippi to collect the rest of the Mississippi saints. Brigham Young sent him word to leave them there for another year, but to come to Winter Quarters to travel with the vanguard company of 1847, which he did, serving as captain of the 13th ten. After arriving in the valley, he immediately returned to Mississippi,  collected a small group of members, and took them back to Winter Quarters, where they joined with the 1848 Willard Richards Company. He served as Captain of the 4th ten in that company. 

In both 1851 and 1853, he captained his own emigrant companies. 

He was a returning missionary from England in 1862.

Some of his travels are mentioned in the obituary of his daughter, Martha.

John's date of birth was listed as 23 October 1820 in "John Brown's company of 10, report, 1848 June."
