Orson Pratt
Birth: Sep. 19, 1811
Hartford
Washington County
New York, USA
Death: Oct. 3, 1881
Salt Lake City
Salt Lake County
Utah, USA

Apostle of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and brother to Apostle Parley P. Pratt, whom he was broght the news of the restored gospel. Orson was informed of his own call to the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles by a newspaper while serving a mission in Columbus. He left immediately for Kirtland, and arrived at the meeting the same moment they were discussing his call. Some even prophesyed his attendence, he with his brothren of the original Quourm were all called that very day.
In the Nauvoo era, both Orson and his wife Sarah were decieved by apostate John C. Bennett and were excommunicated thereafter. Orson fell into such a depression he nearly became suicidal but by the love shown by the Prophet Joseph himself, the Pratt's were rebaptized by the Prophet.
Elder Pratt served with all his might the rest of his life, never afraid to give his opinion, even if it opposed President Brigham Young's.
His early death was brought on by constant physical exertion in 1881. (bio by: Chad Stowell)
