About Seeley Owen

Mormon Pioneer

"...Owen, Seeley – (6th Ten) Born March 30, 1805, at Milton, Rutland Co., Vt., to Ethan and Hannah Owen. He married Lydia Ann Owen. She died during the exodus from Nauvo in 1846 and was buried at Winter Quarters. In crossing the plains with the original company, he was assigned to the crew that hauled a cannon. The cannon was fired a few times as a warning while in Indian country, but was not used against the Indians. After arriving in Salt Lake Valley, he returned to Winter Quarters. His daughter was brought west with relatives, and he soon returned to Salt Lake Valley. For a time he lived in Provo after which he was called to help with the settlement of Wallsburg, Wasatch Co., Utah. He later moved to Arizona where he died at age 76, in 1881 near Flagstaff in an accident while working for the Atlantic Pacific Railroad..."
