Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 18, 1879
Moroni
Sanpete County
Utah, USA
Death: Aug. 31, 1879
Utah, USA

At 5 months old, while traveling with his pioneer family from Moroni to Castle Valley in a covered wagon, Erastus passed away in the area above Joe's Valley. He was carried with his family in a hand-made casket and was buried on his grandfather Curtis' farm. Erastus was later moved to the Castle Dale Cemetery, being one of the first to be buried there.

Note: The characters "Joe & Tilda" in the Castle Valley Pageant, who (in the pageant) loose their young baby while traveling to Castle Valley in a covered wagon, are based upon upon Erastus Curtis Boulden & his parents, Joseph Louis & Matilda Caroline (Curtis) Boulden.
