George Mortimer Brown
The Brown family traveled to the Salt Lake Valley with the Henry Bryant Manning Jolley Company in 1852. The Brown family included George and his wife Elizabeth Mills, and their children Thomas, George Mortimer, Joseph Moroni, William H., and Elizabeth.
Being a former Missionary to Denmark, George Mortimer was an interpreter for the Danes in the Andrew H. Scott Company in 1866. He also served as the company Chaplain. In the Scott company records, it shows that he purchased two adult food rations for the overland portion of the journey. His PEF record indicates that other person was "Eliz. O. Hgn." This was the woman he married while serving his mission and brought home with him.
