    Henry Pike Hoyt married Irene Elizabeth Lincoln at Nauvoo, Illinois when he was age 27. They had a son Don Carlos Hoyt in 1844 and then the family moved with the Church westward and settled in Mills county Iowa. When his son was two years old, Henry and his brother, Timothy Sabin Hoyt, joined the U.S. Mormon Battalion as a Private in Company A, and left his family in Iowa. He endured all the hardships of the 2,000 mile march and was discharged in Los Angeles. After reaching the Sierra Nevada Mountains east of Sutters Fort, he because sick and died, Sept. 3rd, 1847. He was burried on the trail about 80 miles east of Sutter's Fort near Bear Valley, Mariposa, California. Maybe because of this tragedy, his family never completed the trek to Salt Lake City and remained in Iowa. His widow married another of his brothers, and his son later married Harriet Mary Cary and had seven children and settled in Pioneer, Graham, Kansas. I've found he was a 7th cousin 3R to me. ~Vern Taylor.

    USMB Reddick Newton Allred was Henry Hoyt's brother-in-law. They traveled north from Los Angeles to Sacramento before turning east.

    We moved out a few miles from Los Angeles and camped about a week organizing for our return trips. Bro. Hancock assumed with Father Pettegrew the responsibility and organized us in tens, fifties and hundreds. Wm. Hyde, Captain?50; Daniel Tyler 2nd and 3rd with Andrew Lytle over all.

    July 20th my company being ready we moved up 20 miles to Gen?l Pico?s Ranch. It crossed a spur of mountains to San Francisco where we remained till the 29th waiting for the other two companies to come up?meanwhile we were jerking beef for the journey. We employed a guide to a place called Hot Springs. August 1, 1847 we camped in a beautiful valley where we found the name of Peter Lebeck who was killed by a grizzly bear Oct. 17, 1837. After our guide left us we missed the Walker Pass and turned down the "Toolary" Valley to Sutter?s Fort on the Sacramento River where the city now stands.

    We reached there on the 26 Aug. 1, 1847, 600 miles from Los Angeles without accident. We found a few families of Saints that came on the ship Brooklyn from New York expecting to meet the Church in California until we told them they were settling in Salt Lake Valley. The Burr family was there. We rested a few days and then took the old California Road?crossed the American Fork and found a daughter of widow Murphy, one of the ill-fated Hasting party. Bro. John King and I visited her to find her married to one Johnson.

    Henry Pike Hoyt was taken sick. I stoped with him a couple of days?the company going on to Bear Valley; 8 men stayed with me. The third day he said he could go, but after we crossed Deep Hollow he got so bad we took him off his horse as he was apparently dying. Twice we administered to him and he revived so much he said he could go, but got so bad again I had to hold him on and finally I had to break his hold of the horn of the saddle. He said, "No, go on?" his last words, for he was dead in 15 minutes. We wrapped him in his blanket and laid him 12 mile from Deep Hollow two rods below the road, having nothing but a hatchet to dig down in the hillside, and to build up the lower side. Over the top we put rocks and sticks and marked on a tree, "Henry P. Hoyt died on the 3rd of Sept. 1847 after 9 days? illness with jaundice, 80 miles from Sutter?s Fort."
