Joseph Moroni, was born 25 Dec. 1836, the night his family was driven from their home in Farr West, Clay, Missouri. His parents are Amanda Armstrong Fausett and Moses Martin Sanders Sr.

Joseph was baptized on his eighth birthday, December 25, 1844 in a hole cut out of the ice of the frozen Mississippi River just out of Nauvoo.

Joseph Moroni married Hulda Charlotte Zabriskie, the daughter of Lewis Curtis Zabriskie, on August 20, 1860 at Fairview, Sanpete, Utah. His parents, Lewis Curtis Zabriskie and his wife, Mary Higbee, came to Utah with the Garden Grove Company in 1851, and eventually settled in Spring City, Utah, which was originally called The Allred Settlement.

Their first child, Mary Amanda, was born at Fairview, September 10, 1861, and on February 26, 1864 a son was born which lived only two days.

In 1865 his father, Moses Martin Sanders, and his family were called to the Dixie Cotton Mission. It was found that cotton could be raised quite successfully here, and there had been a factory built at Washington where the cotton could be turned into yard goods, some ready made clothing, and blankets which could be exchanged for other products throughout the state.

Joseph Moroni and his brothers obtained land in the Washington fields, and his father, Moses Sanders bought the Middleton Ranch and built a house there just east of the bridge, which still stands in good condition.

Their daughter, Nettie Ann Sanders died in 1960.
