About Thomas Gates

Thomas Gates and his wife Patty relocated from Saint Johnsbury, Vermont, to Kirtland, Ohio soon after they joined the Mormon Church.

In 1834 Thomas went with Joseph Smith to Jackson, County, Missouri, but then returned with him to Kirtland. In February 1835, Thomas was appointed a member of the Second Quorum of Seventies.

Thomas Gates was in Missouri again in 1838. But in 1839, Thomas settled in Nauvoo after being expelled from Missouri with the rest of the Mormons. In 1846, he accompanied his daughter, Lucinda, and her husband, Erastus Bingham, to the camp at Swift River in Iowa.

On August 8,1846, Thomas and Erastus were both named High Councilors to George Miller, who presided over the saints in that location.
