About Nathaniel Thomas Brown

"...Brown, Nathaniel Thomas – (10th Ten) On the way west, he associated with Porter Rockwell in hunting and in searching after lost animals. He returned to Winter Quarters in the fall of 1847. After returning to Winter Quarters, he was accidentally shot at Council Bluffs, Iowa, in February 1848, just as he was preparing to return to the Salt Lake Valley. Distressed by the accident, Brigham Young was said to have remarked, "Brown's old shoes were worth more than the whole body of the man who killed him."
