When the exodus begun in 1846, leaders of the church called upon Erastus to make the roads, build the bridges, and plant the crops the Saints would need in their trek acroos Iowa. His wife, Olive and his two small children joined him in Council Bluffs, with the main body of the church, just in time to hear the call for the "Mormon Battalion".

Erastus was president of the 38th Quorum of Seventies. In 1858, having served in the Mormon Battalion and then in state militia, Erastus was called to serve again, with the rank of Major, in the Echo Canyon campaign against Johnston's Army.

In 1860, Erastus took his second wife, Susan and her small children to Slaterville, where he farmed and herded cattle. He served the Lord as a missionary in St. Johnsbury, Vermont, to many of his cousins which lived in the area. By 1879, polygamy laws made it difficult to live in South Fork, so he moved Olive (his first wife) and Susan (wife #2) to southeastern Utah. They then moved to Macious, Colorado and finally Tucson, Arizona.
