He was accompanied by is brother, Orson K. Whitney. The rest of the family arrived Oct. 8, 1848. He served as a major in the Topographical Engineers of the Nauvoo Legion. When Johnston's army marched through the empty Salt Lake City in 1858, he was one of the guards who stood ready to burn the city if the army stopped. He was for many years a member of the Deseret Dramatic Association, both at the Social Hall and the Salt Lake Theatre. A gifted musician, he played in the orchestra. He learned the printer's trade while in Nauvoo and when the Deseret News was founded in 1850, he set the type for the first edition and became its printer. He served in the management of the newspaper for 21 years, a period of tremendous growth for the newspaper. He died Nov. 22, 1884, in Salt Lake City, Utah, at age 61..."
