About Geroge Roberts Grant

Mormon Pioneer

"...Grant, George R. – (4th Ten) Born July 14, 1820, in New York. He is noted as one who captured a young eagle on the way west. He returned to Winter Quarters that fall and was one of the signers of a petition to the government requesting permission to establish a post office on Pottawattamie lands. He returned west, it is believed, with Brigham Young in 1848 and established a home in Kaysville, Davis Co., Utah in 1852. He was among a group sent to establish the Salmon River Mission in Idaho in 1855. They preached to the Flathead, Bannock and Shoshone Indians and attempted to teach them farming and how to build houses. The mission was successful for two years but in winter of 1857-58 the mission was closed when other whites influenced the Indians to be hostile to the missionaries. He moved to Carson City, Nev., where he attempted to establish a shipping business. He died July 22, 1889, in California, at age 69..."
