He was a member of the company of Latter-day Saints numbering 230 persons organized by Orson Pratt, who went around Cape Horn in 1846 and anchored in San Francisco harbor July 31, 1846. The company started the journey to Salt Lake valley in the late summer of 1848 and joined the Utah pioneers who had been here a little more than a year. After living in Salt Lake a few years the Austin family moved to Centerville, Davis county, where Mr.Austin's mother died.

In 1864 the family moved to Paris, Bear Lake, Idaho, being among the first to go to that section. It was at this place that Mr. Austin married Sarah Jane Wilcox in 1866.To them were born eight sons and one daughter.
