Our Pioneer Heritage, Volume 1, Women and Children of the Mormon Battalion

Robert H. Brown, son of James (Polly) Brown and Eunice Reasor, when a young boy, was one of the teamsters for the Mormon Battalion. At the time the Battalion left Fort Leavenworth, Robert was ill and his father was permitted to drive his team. One night a terrible storm arose. All the tents were blown down except one. The cover of the wagon in which Robert was lying was split asunder and the rain came upon him in torrents. He was soon lifted out and placed under the wagon and later removed to the one remaining tent which was held intact by six men. The fury of the storm was finally spent and the camp removed to a more desirable camping ground, where they took a day off to dry their wet bedding. He accompanied his father who was sent with the sick detachment to Pueblo to help prepare shelters for the women and children. In the spring they came into the Valley with Captain Brown's company.
