Chauncey Loveland - Farmer

Chauncey Loveland was fifty years of age when he made the trek to Utah with the pioneer company. He was born in Glasgow, Connecticut in October 1795, the son of Levi and Esther Hill Loveland. He married Nancy Graham at Madison, Ohio and here six children were born.

Later they moved to Carthage, Illinois and during the time of their residence in that city his wife and a son died. In the spring of 1846 he married Sally Horn Crockett. Up to this time he had not affiliated himself and family with the Latter Day Saint Church, but was kindly disposed toward the Elders and aided them whenever he could. Soon after he accepted their teachings and while living at Mt. Pisgah, he was baptized into the Church.

When the roster was made up for the men who were to accompany President Young on the initial trip to the Rocky Mountains, Chauncey Loveland's name was on that list. After his arrival in the valley, he stayed only a short time, then accompanied President Young back to Winter Quarters for the purpose of bringing his family to Utah. They located in Bountiful on a tract of land and he engaged in farming and breeding fine horses.

From the time of his arrival in 1848, Mr. Loveland proved himself a conscientious and energetic pioneer as well as being of an adventurous nature. When the gold rush to California was at its height, he decided to join the gold seekers to explore the mining regions of that state. It is said that he traveled quite extensively but records left by his family fail to say whether the venture was successful.

He returned to Utah and resumed his farming activities. Mr. Loveland passed away August 16, 1875 at the age of 79 years. He was a kindly, unassuming man never aspiring to positions in public life.
