Becoming a convert to "Mormonism', he was baptized Oct. 20, 1845, enlisted in July, 1846, in the Battalion, marched to Santa Fe, N. M., where he was placed with the sick detachment and marched to Pueblo, where he spent the winter of 1846-1847. The following spring (1847) the sick detachment of the Battalion and the company of Mississippi saints who had also wintered at Pueblo, continued the journey to the "Valley," where they arrived a few days after the Pioneers. Bro. Brimhall helped to make the first adobes in the "Valley," passed through many of the Indian troubles as a military man and experienced the hardships which fell to the lot of the early pioneers. After changing residences several times, he died at Glendale, Kane Co., Utah, Dec. 18, 1906, at the age of 82 years. By his wife, Anna Retta Harris, he had ten children, eight of whom were living at the time of his death.
