"...Kendall, Levi Newell – (8th Ten) Born April 19, 1822, in Lockport, Niagara Co., N.Y., to Levi and Lorena Lyman Kendall. He accepted the teachings of the Church in Michigan, and was ordained a seventy in 1844 in Nauvoo by Joseph Smith Sr. and was sent on a mission to Michigan. He was called home after the martyrdom. With the first pioneer company, he was assigned as a guard. On June 5, 1847, he and John Eldredge were guarding the camp when they saw about 15 Pawnee Indians entering the enclosure.
