Elder. First locatea at Heber City, moved to Provo,
and returned to Heber City and was the miller for the
Abram Hatch Milling Co. In 1879 moved to Ashley Valley,
at which place, during the winter the people nearly starved
to death; he took stones and made burrs for the grinding of
what grain they had; the horses and cattle nearly all died
of starvation, and those that were living were so weak
they could not work, so the men pulled the sweep that
turned the burrs for the grinding of flour and thus pre-
vented starvation. He was the pioneer miller at Vernal,
which he conducted until 1911. He was one of the original
locators of the mineral veins at Park City, Utah. Black
Hawk Indian war veteran.
