About George Scholes

Mormon Pioneer

"...Scholes, George – (5th Ten) Born Feb. 2, 1812, at Chadderton, Lancashire, England, to George and Sarah Scholes. He was baptized Nov. 3, 1839, and immigrated to Nauvoo, where he built a brick home and planted an orchard. While in Nauvoo, his wife and three children died. In the original company, he was assigned to the crew that brought the cannon. After arriving in Salt Lake Valley, he immediately prepared the land and planted vegetables and helped construct the fort. He returned to Winter Quarters and was then sent to St. Louis, Mo., to conduct business for the Church. He returned west in 1850, bringing his wife, Mary Spencer Scholes. They settled in the Cottonwood area. He died Aug. 14, 1857, in Cottonwood, at age 45..."
