About George Prince

George Prince was born in England. He moved to South Africa at the age of 26 because the English government was giving away tracts of land to make new settlements. George was always looking for the restored gospel and knew he would recognize it when he heard it. In treasures of Pioneer History an experience of his is related as follows "One evening at the end of a hard day’s travel as he was making him rounds to see that everything was all right for the night, someone called him by the name of ‘George.’ He turned and beheld a personage clothed In a long white robe, who told his that the Gospel had been restored and would be brought to him by two men, warning him to heed their teachings and accept them. He was told that he would know the men immediately upon seeing them. The gathering of Israel was also explained to him and urging that it should be done speedily lest part of his family be left behind."12 As George related the experience to his wife, she laughed calling his as visionary a man as Abraham of Old. Two years later as Billy, George’s son, was playing outside two men came up the path. Billy, upon recognizing the two men from his fathers vision ran into the house announcing the arrival of the men. The men were Mormon missionaries who taught and converted the Prince family. The Prince family immigrated to Utah in 1860 where they continued faithful in the Church.
