Joseph is said to have suffered an illness that caused a very high fever which damaged his brain in about the year 1846-47. After that he was never again ?normal,? but he was able to work on his mother?s farm and take care of the livestock, etc. He was found dead of a gunshot wound in the pasture where his mother?s and brother?s cattle grazed on the east bench of Salt Lake City in 1855.

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.?

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).
