Mormon Pioneer

"...Boggs, Francis – (8th Ten) Born May 17, 1807, in Belmont Co., Ohio, to Alexander and Hannah Martin Boggs. He was baptized by missionaries who came to his home May 17, 1841. He married Evalina Martin in 1842 and the family moved to Nauvoo where his carpentry skills were used helping to build the city. His family left Nauvoo in the exodus of 1846 and traveled to Winter Quarters. There, he was chosen to go west with the first group. His family followed, arriving in Sept. 1847. They lived in the Salt Lake Eighth Ward, then moved to Springville in 1850, and later to Fillmore and Parowan, all in Utah. He was sent on a mission to mine lead and farm in Las Vegas, Nev. In 1861, he took his family to Washington, in Washington Co., Utah. He filled positions in various communities and served one term in the Utah legislature.
