Lorenzo Pettit, and with his wife, he started west in February, 1846, with the first company of exiles from Nauvoo bound for the Rocky Mountains. After spending several months at Winter Quarters, he continued the journey to G. S. L. Valley, where he arrived in October, 1848. He lived in the "Old Fort" about two years and cultivated the land upon which the City and County Building now stands. Later the Pettits moved west of the city, living on the present site of the Copper Plant for nearly forty years. Bro.
