About Loren Hotchkiss Roundy

Lauren initially traveled to the Salt Lake Valley in the Abraham O. Smoot - Samuel Russell Company in 1847. His name is also listed on the roster for the Willard Richards Company that arrived in the Salt Lake Valley in 1848.

   He later participated as one of the rescuers that were sent out in the winter of 1856 to assist the members of the Church stranded in Wyoming. 
   In some sources his given name is spelled "Lorin" or "Loren."
   Various sources give a wide discrepancy in Lauren's birth date. The date used in this record was the one recorded in the Missionary registers, when he was called to serve a mission.

First child and eldest son of Shadrach Roundy (1788 - 1872) and Betsey Quimby (1793 - 1880), Lauren Hotchkiss Roundy (also spelled 'Loren') was born 21 May 1815 at Spafford, Onondaga County, New York. A Mormon pioneer, Lauren and his first wife and two sons traveled to Utah Territory with the Abraham O. Smoot - Samuel Russell Company in 1847. Loren served his church as a Bishop and High Councilor, was an Indian War veteran, a farmer, and a husband to three wives with whom he had a total of 13 children. Although a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints during the time that some in the church practiced polygamy, Lauren was never married to more than one woman at a time. He died 11March 1900 at Knightville, Juab County, Utah, at the age of 85 and is buried at Evergreen Cemetery, Plot: Sec. B Lot 87, Springville, Utah County, Utah.
