About James Isaac Case

"...Case, James – (Captain of the 7th Ten) Born May 4, 1794, at Litchfield, Conn., to Joseph and Lydia Case. He worked at an outpost near Plum Creek, Neb., in 1845 or 1846 as a $300-a-year government farmer. When he was baptized, his Army commander refused to give him his final paycheck. When the pioneers came to this now-abandoned station while crossing the plains, Brigham Young allowed Case to take the equivalency of pay in abandoned iron, such as a stove, plows and iron bars. He was required to send a letter of explanation to his former employers, however. He later served as a missionary in the Indian Territory of Oklahoma. He arrived for service in St. Louis on Nov. 10, 1855, and "all [missionaries] suffered from want of clothing and proper food, as the Indians among whom they labored were very poor." Elder Case was called to preside over the Creek Nation, and organized the Princess Branch. This branch struggled from lack of local leadership. The handful of missionaries in this mission were ill, and a few died while serving in this mission. Perhaps the effects of this illness claimed Case, as he died in Sanpete Co., Utah, in 1858, soon after returning from his mission..."
