Jacob V. Babbitt
The first documentation to place Jacob in Utah is his rebaptism on 14 March 1851 in Salt Lake City. His name does not appear on the 1850 Utah census. Further research is needed to determine the year of his arrival and the name of the pioneer company he traveled with.
His birth date is confirmed by his re-baptism record in the Salt Lake Stake Record of Members, which also shows his birth place as Lenox, Berkshire, Massachusetts.
The Territorial Militia Records show his name as "Jacob Babbit" and the date is 18 September 1852.
