Richard H. Brett

Richard, a blacksmith, sailed from England twice: once on the ship Chimborazo in 1855 and again on the ship Underwriter in 1860.  In the 1860 U. S. census he was a forty year old man living in Nebraska with twenty-two year old Eliza R. Brett, presumably his wife.  In 1861 Brigham Young received word a Richard Brett had joined  the Morrisites in South Ogden, Utah.  The Morrisite-L site on roots web verifies that this is Richard H. Brett.
