About Artemas Johnson

"...Johnson, Artemas – (7th Ten) Born April 18, 1809, at Remsen, Oneida Co., N.Y., to Artemas and Abia Johnson. At a conference in Nauvoo, about Oct. 6-8, 1839, he was sustained to be an elder. One June 12, 1847, he started off for hills that appeared to be a mile distant but were actually 8-10 miles away and did not return to camp. Searchers found him safe and brought back the antelope he had killed. After reaching the Salt Lake Valley, he returned to Winter Quarters that fall. He received a patriarchal blessing from Isaac Morley on Dec. 2, 1847, at Council Bluffs, Iowa. It is believed that he returned to Utah..."
