    Elias assisted in finishing the Nauvoo Temple, and in 1846 took part in the exodus from Nauvoo. Elias witnessed the starting of the Mormon Battalion and spent the winter of 1846-47 in aiding the families of those who were in the Battalion. In 1849, Elias crossed the plains in William Hyde's company. In September, 1854, he was called by President Brigham Young to take a relief train (ox-teams and provisions) to the immigrating Saints on the plains. In April, 1857, Elias was called to accompany President Brigham Young and about one hundred others on a visit to the Salmon River Mission, called Fort Limhi. In 1857, the government of the United States stopped all mails coming into the Territory. President Young called upon Elias to run the mail from Salt Lake City to Salt Creek (or Nephi) Juab county, which he did for one year without remuneration. In 1858, he assisted in the great "move" south. In September, 1859, Elias was called, together with six other brethren to take a mission to Great Britain and Scandinavia. They were the first Elders sent out after the trouble with the goverment.
