About Levi Newell Kendall

"...Kendall, Levi Newell – (8th Ten) Born April 19, 1822, in Lockport, Niagara Co., N.Y., to Levi and Lorena Lyman Kendall. He accepted the teachings of the Church in Michigan, and was ordained a seventy in 1844 in Nauvoo by Joseph Smith Sr. and was sent on a mission to Michigan. He was called home after the martyrdom. With the first pioneer company, he was assigned as a guard. On June 5, 1847, he and John Eldredge were guarding the camp when they saw about 15 Pawnee Indians entering the enclosure. Kendall fired over their heads frightening them away. The stocks stampeded but were turned by the alert guards and disaster was averted. He returned to Winter Quarters in the fall of 1847 and traveled west to the Salt Lake Valley the following summer. He married Eliza Clements in 1848. He moved to Springville, Utah, in 1856 and helped build canyon roads and dig irrigation canals. He was called to go east in 1861 to escort poor immigrants to the valley. Later he moved to Mapleton, Utah Co. He died March 10, 1903, in Springville, Utah, at age 80..."
