About Zebedee Coltrin

"...Coltrin, Zebedee – (5th Ten) Born Sept. 7, 1804, at Ovid, Seneca Co., N.Y., to John Jr. and Sarah Coltrin. He joined the Church soon after it was organized. He married Julia Ann Jennings. After she died, he married Mary Mott. After crossing with the first company, he returned for his family. However, because of lack of sufficient funds, they did not come to the Salt Lake Valley until 1851. He settled in Spanish Fork, Utah Co., Utah, and during the Indian conflicts, moved his family into a fort there. He helped survey the city site, helped build bridges, make roads and erect schools and meetinghouses. He was described as "one of the oldest members of the Church and was identified with many of the earliest incidents in the days of Kirtland. He was closely associated with the Prophet Joseph and has often testified of having been a witness of and participant in many marvelous spiritual manifestations." He served as one of the first Seven Presidents of the Seventy until it was learned that he had earlier been ordained a high priest. He died July 21, 1887, at age 82 in Spanish Fork, Utah..."
