About Barnabas Lathrop Adams

Mormon Pioneer

"...Adams, Barnabas L. – (2nd Ten) Born Aug. 28, 1812, near Perth, Upper Canada, of Vermont parentage and was converted to the Church at age 23. He came to Missouri with the "Canada Camp," under Elder John E. Page. In 1846, he married Julia Ann Banker. Adams was elected for the original company and became a night guard over the animals. Once hired to float logs down the Mississippi River from Iowa to St. Louis, Mo., he used his experience during river fordings. After crossing the plains with Brigham Young's company in 1847, he immediately returned to Winter Quarters for his family. He brought his family into the Salt Lake Valley in 1848 and settled in the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon. Adams furnished lumber for the Salt Lake Tabernacle, the Salt Lake Theater, and other public buildings. In 1869, he injured himself internally while lifting the bed of a wagon and died June 2, 1869, at age 56, leaving a large family..."
