About Eli Harvey Peirce

"...Peirce, Eli Harvey – (4th Ten) Born July 29, 1827, in Uwchland, Chester Co., Pa., to Robert and Hannah Harvey Peirce. His parens moved to Nauvoo in 1841 and were baptized March 27, 1842, by Joseph Smith. He received his endowments in Nauvoo in 1846 and was ordained a seventy the same year. At age 20, he was part of the pioneer company as a teamster. After arriving, he helped build the settlement in Salt Lake Valley. On his return to Winter Quarters, he met his parents and other relatives coming west in the Edward Hunter Company, so he returned with them. He was commissioned to travel to California to obtain seed grain that fall, which he did with Jefferson Hunt and others. He married Susannah Neff in 1850 and they moved to Brigham City, Box Elder Co., Utah, in 1851. After living in the Brigham City fort during Indian hostilities, they moved into their own home. He was ordained the second bishop of this settlement in 1855. He crossed the plains eastbound with a handcart in 1857 as a missionary bound for Europe. A year later he returned to his father's home and succumbed to an illness contracted while serving his mission. He died in Salt Lake City, Utah, on Aug. 12, 1858, at age 31..."
