Biographical Summary

The Roundy family moved to Onondaga County, New York, by 1815. Records show that Shadrach was baptized as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on 23 January 1831; no baptism was recorded for Betsey at that time but she was confirmed as a Church member on 1 January 1832.

The family accompanied LDS Church prophet and founder Joseph Smith to Kirtland by 1834, where Shadrach began serving as bodyguard to Joseph Smith; they moved to Far West, Missouri, by 1838 and were expelled from Missouri in 1839, along with the rest of the Church. Locating temporarily in Warsaw, Illinois, they moved to Nauvoo about 1840; leaving Nauvoo for Far West in 1846. Traveling separately to Utah, Shadrack arrived in Salt Lake Valley July 1847, with Betsey and the children arriving two months later.

Betsey died on 28 March 1880, at Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, Utah Territory, United States.
