About Eric McArthur Glines

Mormon Pioneer

"...Glines, Eric – (7th Ten) Born Oct. 5, 1822, in New Hampshire to John and Maria Glines. He was reared in Churchville, Ontario, Canada, where his family stayed until 1839. He was appointed to be one of the foot hunters. He didn't follow Brigham Young's instructions when he chose to remain behind with a group at the North Platte River ferry. Later he changed his mind and followed the company, camping one night alone and then with a company of Missourians. He was among four men sent back to guide the rearward companies and pilot them across the Green River in Wyoming. After reaching Salt Lake Valley, he went to California where he pioneered in Sacramento Valley and reared a large family. He was known as a daring scout and made several trips across the continent before the railroad was built. He died in Santa Rosa, Calif., on May 4, 1881, at age 58..."
