Karren, Thomas, a member of the Mormon Battalion, Company E, was born May 1, 1810, on the Isle of Man, a son of Thomas Karren and Catherine Clark. He moved to Liverpool in 1830, and joined the Church in May, 1842. He was ordained an Elder in Liverpool, emigrated to Nauvoo, Illinois, in 1844, was ordained a Seventy by Jacob Gates in 1844, and became a member of 20th Quorum of Seventy at Nauvoo.

He joined the Mormon Battalion in 1846, spent the winter of 1846-1847 at Pueblo, and arrived in Great Salt Lake Valley July 29, 1847, soon after the original Pioneers came.

Cannon and others. He returned to Lehi in 1855, and later was chosen as first counselor to Bishop David Evans, which position he held until his death which occurred April 12, 1876.
