About Joseph Teasdale Egbert

"...Egbert, Joseph Teasdale – (1st ten) Born in Vincennes, Ind., March 10, 1818, to John and Susan Hahn Egbert. The family joined the Church and eventually moved to Nauvoo. On Dec. 6 1840, he married Caroline Allred. Selected to accompany the original pioneer company, Egbert was appointed to drive Orson Pratt's wagon and to cook. On the trail, he once found several buffalo, and shot two. However the other animals circled and Egbert crawled away to avoid being attacked. He returned exhausted to camp and others recovered the game. He joined the advance party that entered the valley July 22, 1847. He returned to Winter Quarters that fall and brought his family to the Great Basin. One child died while crossing the plains. He later settled in Kaysville, Davis Co., Utah, building a large home and planting some of the first fruit orchards. He was roads supervisor of the district for 35 years and constable of the town for two years. He died March 24, 1898, in Ogden, Weber Co., Utah at age 80..."
