Resided in the 11th Ward of Salt Lake City, 1852 - 1861
From: Encyclopedic History of the LDS Church:
SALT LAKE CITY 11TH WARD, Ensign Stake, Salt Lake Co., Utah, consists (1930) of the Latter-day Saints residing in that part of Salt Lake City which is bounded on the north by South Temple St..., east by 12th East and Elizabeth streets ..., south by 3rd South St ..., and west by 6th East St.
The 11th Ward was one of the nineteen ecclesiastical wards into which Salt Lake City was organized in February, 1849. John Lytle was chosen as Bishop. He acted without counselors from 1849 to July 13, 1851, when the ward was more fully organized...
The early settlers of the 11th Ward rented a log cabin for $2.50 a month to be used for school and ward purposes, which served until an adobe school house, 20x30 feet, was erected during the winter of 1854-1855. A rock meeing house was erected in 1873-1875, which served for meeting and school purposed until 1914... The 11th Ward belonged to the Salt Lake Stake of Zion until 1904, when it became part of the Ensign Stake.
"The two forts that were built in the valley were the Sage Bottoms Fort, in 1866 just south of Peoa in the Woodenshoe area, and the other was the Rhoades Valley Fort in Kamas in 1867"
"The Roades Valley Fort was built on the block now occupied by the DUP Relic Hall, the fire station and the Kamas Town Hall. [The fort covered most of the block surrounded by Main Street, Center Street, First West and First South. Beaver Creek runs through the northeast corner of the block.]... According to the brass plaque on the front of the DUP building, it was 'erected 1866-67 for protection against hostile Indians... Was 30 rods square with walls 16 feet high, built of logs that formed the back walls of the houses, with gates in the east and west walls. There was about 47 families who lived in the fort from the time of its erection until it was abandoned in about 1870."
Andrew Jenson, Encyclopedic History of the Church?
KAMAS WARD, Summit Stake, Summit Co., Utah, consists of Latter-day Saints residing in the central part of the Kamas Prairie. The town of Kamas is located on Beaver Creek, close to the mountains on the east side of the valley, 14 miles east of Park City, 17 miles northeast of Heber City (in Wasatch Co.) and 25 miles southeast of Coalville, the stake headquarters.
Kamas Prairie or Rhodes Valley, as it is sometimes called, was settled by Latter-day Saints in the spring of 1860. Among these settlers were Thomas Rhodes (in whose honor the valley was named) and George W. Brown, who with their two families were the only ones who spent the winter of 1860?1861 in the district. They had a considerable amount of stock, and at that time there was much danger to their herd from depredations of bears and other wild animals which roved in the vicinity. It also became necessary in 1866 to erect a fort as a protection against hostile Indians, near the present center of Kamas. Other settlers joined the first-comers and Thomas Rhodes (affectionately known as ?Father? Rhodes) had general supervision over the settlement. In 1861 Wm. G. Russell was appointed [p387] presiding Elder. He was succeeded in 1866 by Peter Carney, who was succeeded in 1867 by Ward E. Pack, who was succeeded in 1868 by Willet S. Harder. In 1869 the saints at Kamas erected a substantial bridge across the Weber River, which was a great benefit to the settlement and to the surrounding country. In 1870 Bishop Samuel Frank Atwood was called to preside at Kamas, although no ward organization at that time had been effected, but on July 9, 1877, Kamas was organized as a ward with Samuel F. Atwood as Bishop. He acted in this capacity until 1901, when he was succeeded by Dan Lambert, who was succeeded in 1908 by Merrit Newton Pack, who was succeeded in 1916 by George Christensen, who was succeeded in 1920 by Vincent Shepherd, who was succeeded in 1924 by Lorenzo Sargent, who was succeeded in 1928 by Oscar Edwin Eskelson, who presided Dec. 31, 1930, on which date the ward had 406 members, including 91 children. The total population of the Kamas Precinct in 1930 was 558, of whom 491 resided on the townsite.
As this settlement is scattered over considerable ground, for the purpose of this history, we will speak of the valley of Kamas, which extends from the Weber where it comes out of the mountains on the east of the valley, ten miles south to the Provo River, which is the southern limit of Summit County. This Kamas valley, may however, be considered the continuation of the valley of the Weber River. It is about five miles in width east and west. It nestles like a gem in the bosom of mountains that are romantically grand and beautiful. It is 1,600 feet higher than the city of Provo. Thomas Rhodes, the hunter was the pioneer of the valley. He reported to Brigham Young that he had killed bears there and wished to settle in it. He was given the privilege of doing so on condition of getting others to go with him. About 25 men went with him, among whom were Wm O. Anderson, George Smith, Theodore Smith, Robert and Sandy Watson, Alfred Fullmer, Peter McCue, George Brown, Horace Lamb, Charles Lambert, Wm. McClellan, George Brabbet, and Horace Drake. They built a stockade near a spring one mile north of town. This was accomplished in the spring of 1857. After the fort was built, on account of dissatisfaction among the Indians, the men returned to Salt Lake City. John Lambert, Samuel Turnbow, James Davis, Samuel Williams, and William and Charles Russell and others went into the valley in 1861, and found Mr. Rhodes with his family already there.
For four years but little grain was produced for food and that was of poor quality. In the winter of 1861-62, the only machinery for grinding this poor wheat was an old coffee mill. This, though kept running day and night could not supply the needs of the people, and some of the wheat had to be boiled to make it available for food. There was little to eat except the wheat, but doubtless the cold weather, good health and short diet gave a relish to this poor food. The first school-house was built on the north side of Bean Creek as early as 1863, in which Mrs. Betsy Ann Deluche taught the first school. Wm. Russell first directed the affairs of the valley as ecclesiastical president. As stated in the history of Peoa, Kamas joined that settlement in forting up in the spring of 1866. They returned to Kamas in the autumn and built a fort of hewn logs 20 rods square and 16 feet high. The old school-house was moved into the center of the fort to answer the double purpose of school and meeting house. The yard for animals were as usual in such cases arranged around the fort outside. The first postmaster of Kamas was George B. Leonard.
Twice a city plat was surveyed and the location changed. The final survey was made in February, 1871, by A.F. Doremus, under the direction of Bishop S.F. Atwood, whose ward at that time included Kamas, Peoa, Rockport, Wanship and Parley?s Park. A good frame school-house 24 by 40 feet, was erected in 1874. When the Summit Stake of Zion was organized, S.F. Atwood was installed local bishop of Kamas. The good morals of the people are evidenced by the fact, that although there have been efforts made to establish the sale of spiritous liquors, those efforts have not been sustained by the people sufficiently to be a success.
The character of the country insures general good health to the people and the increase of population is rapid. The Co-operative Mercantile Institution takes the lead in business. There are immense pine forests in the surrounding mountains, and the making of lumber is a leading industry. It mostly finds a market in Park City. As with other settlements on the upper Weber, stock-raising was at first the principal source of profit to the people, but owing to the favorable change in the seasons, farming is assuming considerable proportions. Some fruit has been grown and there is a prospect of partial success in this direction. The people of Kamas valley number about 1,000.

Andrew Jenson, Encyclopedic History of the Church:
PEOA WARD, Summit Stake, Summit Co., Utah, consists of the Latter-day Saints residing in the village of Peoa and a number of scattered settlers along the Weber River. The Weber River makes a short bend from a westerly to a northerly direction about one mile south of Peoa, and the settlement is located in the bend of the river thus formed. The ward meeting house, a rock building, is located about 15 miles southeast of Coalville and 12 miles northeast of Park City.
It is claimed that in 1857 Judge Wm. W. Phelps, with others, came on to the grounds where Peoa now stands with a view to making a settlement there and that Bro. Phelps drove stakes into the ground and named the place Pe-oh-a, the Indian word for marry. This name (Peoa) was retained by the later settlers. In 1860 several families came, put up log houses and took up their residence there. David O. Rideout was the first presiding Elder. He was succeeded in 1862 by Abraham Marchant, who was shortly afterwards ordained to the office of a Bishop and presided over the southern part of Summit County, including Peoa, Rockport, Wanship and Kamas, as well as acting as local Bishop of Peoa. When the Summit Stake of Zion was organized [p650] in 1877 Abraham Marchant was continued as Bishop of Peoa and acted in that capacity until his death, Oct. 6, 1881. In 1882 he was succeeded by Stephen Walker, who was succeeded in 1901 by Arthur Maxwell, jun., who was succeeded in 1916 by Abraham Franklin Marchant, who was succeeded in 1923 by James A. Maxwell, who was succeeded in 1925 by Hyrum A. Jorgensen, who presided Dec. 31, 1930, on which date the ward had a membership of 190, including 45 children. In 1930 the Peoa Precinct had a total population of 211.

Notes: SECOND COMPANY -- North America, about 200 souls. Saturday, September 5th, 1840, Apostles Brigham Young and Willard Richards went from Manchester to Liverpool, and in the evening organized a company of Saints bound for New York, by choosing Elder Theodore Turley, a returning missionary, to preside, with six counselors, among whom was Elder William Clayton, one of the earliest English converts. Apostles Brigham Young and Willard Richards went on board the North America on Monday the 7th, and remained with the Saints on board over night. On Tuesday morning, about nine o?clock, the vessel was tugged out by a steamer. The Apostles accompanied the emigrants about fifteen miles and then left them in good spirits. The company had a prosperous voyage to New York, where they arrived in the beginning of October, and from there they continued the journey to Buffalo, New York. Owing to the expensiveness of the route many of the emigrants fell short of means to complete the journey to Nauvoo, they therefore divided at Buffalo, a part going to settle in and around Kirtland, Ohio, while the balance, under the leadership of Theodore Turley, continued the journey to Nauvoo, to which place Joseph the Prophet states he had the pleasure of welcoming about one hundred of them, about the middle of October, 1841.

With regard to your request to add John Lambert's family to the 1850 Lorenzo Young company in the pioneer database on the Church web site:
We had the Lamberts in the 1850 unidentified company category with a note that they might have traveled in the Young company. However the John Lambert 1893 statement proves that they were in the Hawkins company. If he traveled "in the company of Thomas Johnson," then he was in the Hawkins company because Johnson was a captain of fifty in that company. I am including the portion of his statement referring to his crossing the plains on our web site, too. I don't know why his daughter, Elena, stated that her father came in the Young company, but John Lambert's statement is a much more contemporaneous record. In instances when we have a conflict in documentation, we are much more apt to accept his word than the word of a daughter [Elena] who didn't actually go on the journey, but was born 13 years afterwards.
John Lambert?s statement:
?[I], John Lambert, first heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints preached by Frances Moon (a missionary) in England [in the] year 1837. [My sister, two brothers and I] emigrated in the fall of 1840 on the sail ship North America, [a] 32 day voyage. [We] landed in New York, took [a] steamboat on the Hudson River 160 miles to Buffalo, then took the Lakes to Chicago, 1000 miles. Then went by wagon (horses, I think) to Dixon's Ferry, 110 miles to Rock River. Then [we] built a flat boat and sailed down Rock River to the Mississippi, about 150 miles, then down the Mississippi River to Commerce (Nauvoo), remaining there until the spring of 1846.
?Then [we] went to Saint Joseph [Missouri] by ox team, then to Jackson County [Missouri] by team to visit my first wife's (Adelia Groesbeck) folks in Sugar Creek, Iowa. [We] visited my brother, Richard, in Hancock County, Illinois, returned to Jackson County, remained there until in the spring of 1850. Then [we] went to Bethleham, north 350 miles, to the Missouri River, traveled with ox team. Then [we] started for Salt Lake City, Utah, with ox team in the company of Thomas Johnson. [We] arrived in Salt Lake City, Utah, 11 Sep 1850. [We] lived there eleven years in the second ward and fenced the first lot in this ward. [We] moved to Kamas, Summit County, in the spring of 1861, April. I had been there six or eight months before.?
Thomas Johnson Company
Source: Nelson, William Goforth, Reminiscences, in Journal History of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 9 Sept. 1850, 6-7.
Two companies of Saints arrived in G. S. L. City. William Goforth Nelson, who was with one of these companies wrote as follows:
It was on the 8th day of May, 1850, that we started from Mt. Pisgah to Council Bluffs and thence crossed the plains to Salt Lake Valley. We started with two good wagons and good ox teams. We also had a number of cows. We traveled pretty much alone until we had come four miles west of Council Bluffs, where we found a camp of Saints, and on June 4th the camp was organized with Thomas Johnson as captain.
The following day we were ready to start on our journey west. There were fifty wagons in the company. ... Our journey was quite a pleasant one. We had good luck, no Indian trouble whatever, and only three deaths occurred in our company on the trip. The first one of these was a woman, the wife of a man named Wilkinson. She was buried on the west side of the mouth of "Ash Hollow". The second was my cousin, Dr. Thomas Goforth, who was buried a little east of "Chimney Rock". The next, a few day later, was a Brother Borum. Melvin Ross and I dug the grave and buried it. These persons were buried in graves made with a vault in the bottom. The bodies were wrapped in a quilt, blanket or wagon cover, whichever could best be spared and would then be placed in the vault; timbers put across and hay spread over and then covered with dirt... While on the plains we saw a great many herds of Buffalo. When they were on their trails leading to watering places, they would not get out of our way, and if they were trailing across our road, we would be compelled to stop our teams until they would have time to pass. But if they were feeding we could not get near them.
We reached Salt Lake City, Sept. 9, 1850, and camped on the public square for two days.
The L. D. S. Church emigration of 1850 came to Utah in ten companies under the direction of the following captains: Milo Andrus (A); Benjamin Hawkins (Ha); Aaron Johnson (J); James Pace (P); Edward Hunter (H); Joseph Young (Y); Warren Foote (F); Wilford Woodruff (w); Stephen Markham (M); and David Evans (E). Many independent companies continued to emigrate to the west (I).

There are some wagons quite too heavy. Those brought from St. Louis are good, but too heavy. A heavy wagon with a stiff tongue is unsuitable for the journey. Let no person hereafter buy a wagon for this trip unless its tongue has a joint in the hounds forward of the axletree. Light wagons that will bear from sixteen to twenty hundred pounds, are the most suitable for this service. These heavy lumber concerns should be left here, and not used by our people, neither by anybody else, unless they choose.
The number of California wagons that have crossed at this point, is about 4,500 averaging 3 men to the wagon, making 13,500 men, and about 22,000 head of horses, mules, oxen, and cows.
Our own emigration to Salt Lake Valley will amount to about 700 wagons as nearly as we, at present, can determine. They take two new carding machines in addition to one sent last year, besides much other valuable machinery. They also take about 4000 sheep and 5000 head of cattle, horses, and mules.
With the facilities for improvement that are already in the Valley, and those that are now going, we may expect to see that hitherto, desolate region, growing rapidly into importance, and consideration. Success to the West, and to Western enterprize, to Western men and measures! "Let the Wilderness and the solitary place be glad for them, and the desert rejoice and blossom as the rose."
