Mahonri was born to Reynolds Cahoon and Thirza Stiles. "While residing at Kirtland, Elder Reynolds Cahoon had a son born to him. One day when President Joseph Smith was passing his door he called the Prophet in and asked him to bless and name the baby. Joseph did so and gave the boy the name of Mahonri Moriancumer. When he had finished the blessing, he laid the child on the bed, and turning to Elder Cahoon he said, the name I have given your son is the name of the Brother of Jared; the Lord has just shown or revealed it to me. Elder William F. Cahoon, who was standing near heard the Prophet make this statement to his father; and this was the first time the name of the Brother of Jared was known in the Church in this dispensation." ("The Jaredites", The Juvenile Instructor, [1 May 1892], p 282). He had six siblings: William Farrington, Lerona Eliza, Pulaski Stephen, Daniel Stiles, Andrew, and Julia Amina. Mahonri married Sarah Romney 22 November 1853 in Salt Lake City, Utah. They had seven children: Mahonri Moriancumer, Elizabeth Thurza, Miles Reynolds, John Farrington, Nancy Rosella, Sarah Lorett, and George Earnest. Mahonri died in Murray, Utah and is buried there.
