Levi Roberts was born February 26, 1815, in Deerhurst, Gloucester, England. He married Harriet Ann Hefford and they joined the Latter-Day Church in their native land. Soon after they were baptized and came to America. They went to Nauvoo where he served as a bodyguard to the Prophet Joseph Smith, in the troublesome times of that period.

Levi joined the Mormon Battalion at Council Bluffs in Company "E" and crossed the plains and mountains to California. After his discharge he returned to Council Bluffs where the family made preparations the next two years to come West. They arrived in Salt Lake City in the fall of 1850 and settled on a farm in Kaysville. Levi made baskets of willows that grew on Kaysville creek and took them to Salt Lake City to sell. He was also proficient in the art of grafting. Whenever a new variety of fruit was brought to Utah he procured a slip and grafted in into one of his seedling trees. He named the fruit trees after the person who gave him the slip.

Mr. Roberts passed away at his home in Kaysville, Utah, January 22, 1894. - Robenia B. Christensen
