About Stephen Hezekiah Goddard

Mormon Pioneer

"...Goddard, Stephen H. – (Captain of the 5th Ten) Born Aug. 23, 1810, in Clinton Co., N.Y., to Stephen G. and Sylvia Smith Goddard. Ordained a Seventy June 9, 1845, he became senior member of the 27th Quorum of Seventy. On the trek west, Goddard, described as the handsomest of the pioneer company, was on the cannon crew. He had an excellent singing voice and led the singing around the campfire. Upon arriving in the valley, he eventually became the first conductor of the choir that met in the old tabernacle. He lived at Main Street and First South until 1897 when he moved to Fruitdale, Alameda Co., Calif., probably for his health, and died a year later. He died June 9, 1898, at San Bernardino, Calif., at age 87..."
