Wikipedia Biographical Summary:

"...Hazen Aldrich (January 10, 1797–1873) was an early leader in the Latter Day Saint movement. After the death of Joseph Smith, Jr., Aldrich went on to lead a small denomination of Latter Day Saints known as the Brewsterites. Aldrich was born in Lebanon, New Hampshire to Andrew H.

Aldrich died in El Monte in 1873, and was buried in Rosemead, California..."
