BRIEF HISTORY
Jeremiah , with his parents, were converted to the Church in 1839 and baptized in 1840 . Many other members of the family were baptized at the time. Soon after, the family moved to Nauvoo where they suffered the persecutions with the rest of the saints. After his marriage in Nauvoo , he returned east on a mission. He was there when the Prophet was martyred. The deaths of several members of his family were attributed directly or indirectly to the persecutions of Nauvoo . The deaths occurred in or near Winter Quarters . Jeremiah and his two brothers went to St. Joseph, Missouri , and opened a blacksmith shop, and earned enough to make the trip to Utah . Jeremiah was called to be an Indian Agent in Lehi in 1852 , in Nephi in 1854 , and Manti in 1856 , and Moroni in 1860 . He was then called to settle Smithfield . His wife Louisa died there in 1869 . After her death, he served a mission in Vermont . He married the daughter of a family he had converted there. Upon his return, he and his sons Alva and Lorenzo , and all their families, were asked to go to Mexico in 1876 . Two boys went but Alva and Jeremiah were allowed to take time to sell their property in Cache Valley . At this time Jeremiah took a polygamous wife, Henrietta Clark . At conference, their call was rescinded. They went to Heber City to visit. While there they heard of Ashley Valley in the Uintah Basin . After seeing it, they purchased ground there. The small town that resulted was eventually named Vernal . In 1892 he received a mission call to Moab where he was bishop for five years. He returned to Vernal and lived out his life there. He was a colonizer, Indian peacemaker, missionary, bishop, patriarch, and much more to his friends and family.
