The first group of Mormon pioneers arrived in Salt Lake City in late July, 1847. Pioneers and convert immigrants continued to settle in Salt Lake City and surrounding cities u…ntil the early 1900's, when the Church began to encourage it's members to stay in their homelands and build up the Church there.
Brigham Young lead the first group of Mormon pioneers into the Salt Lake Valley after the death of Joseph Smith. Joseph Smith had prophesied that the Church would one day move… to the Rocky Mountains.
Brigham Young was the Prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Later Day Saints by the time the Mormon migration reached Utah.. Prior to Brigham Young, Joseph Smith, orig…inator of the LDS led the Mormons until he was killed by a mob in Carthage, Illinois, in 1844. The first group of Mormon Pioneers was lead to the Great Salt Lake by Brigham Young. Later groups were lead by experienced trail guides who had traveled with Brigham Young previously.
Their prophet Brigham Young.
The Mormon Pioneers had established several successful cities in the Midwest previously and knew how it was to be done. The reason they did not stay there was due to persecuti…on by mobs in neighboring towns. Their homes were burned down, their men were beaten, and they were forced out of town. When they moved to Utah, there wasn't anyone to persecute them for miles around. They were organized, hard-working, creative, and industrious. Once they got established, the U.S. Government sent a group of men there. While many Mormons feared they would be kicked out of their homes again, the government men largely left them alone. They were just sent to keep an eye on them.
After the Church was founded in New York, most Church members moved to Ohio. Due to persecution, they moved from Ohio to Missouri to Illinois. Once they were asked to leave Il…linois, they moved to Utah. The trail they took to Utah is now called the "Mormon Trail." Once the railroad was completed, converts from Europe and the Eastern U.S. could take a train from New York to Utah.
\nAfter being persecuted in the east, they decided to build Nauvoo, a large city in Illinois. Then they got persecuted there and Brigham Young sent a few members out to check …put Utah. No one was really over there, so they figured no one would be there to persecute them. They traveled to Salt Lake City and that became the LDS church headquarter, which still is.
If by non-Mormon you mean most liberal and containing the mostdiverse people, I'd suggest Sugarhouse. However, anywhere north of5000 south in Salt Lake County would have the l…owest percentage ofLDS church members. . Mormons tend to stick to the south end of the Salt Lake Valleyand Utah county in the newer developments, which are moreconservative and family-oriented. There will, however, probably beseveral LDS members in your neighborhood, no matter where youlive.
The first wagon train took over 1 year and 5 months . The first wagon train left Nauvoo, Illinois in Feb. of 1846. They crossed Iowa and camped for the winter at a place they… called Winter Quarter, Neb., which is near Omaha, Neb. In the spring of 1847 the first wagons departed Winter Quarter for the west (April 14,1847) and arrived in Salt Lake City, Utah, on June 24, 1847 (that portion took over 3 months). The original distance traveled was 1,300 miles. After the first wagon train, others followed for the next 20 years and the time became much quicker. By 1857 handcart companies crossed the plains in about 3 1/2 months. Those traveling individually on horsback or in light buggies could make the journey in just a few weeks.
because people kicked them out of their land everywhere else they went, they are a religious group that basically believe the same thing as Christians, except that theirs a li…ving prophet in today's times.
In short, the purpose of emmigrating was to find a safe place topractice their religion. The Latter-day Saints (Mormons) weresubject to a great deal of persecution, and even m…ob attacks andmurders, wherever they settled -- initially in New York, then Ohio,Missouri, and Illinois. The governor of Missouri even issued anextermination order authorizing the murder of Mormons in the state. After the murder of their prophet and president in 1844, theMormons emigrated along the Mormon Trail to the valley of the GreatSalt Lake, which was mostly uninhabited by anyone, and began tosettle the territory there.
The Latter-Day Saints, or "Mormons", originally settled in Independence, Missouri, but were quickly driven out by its other occupants. They then settled in what became Nauvoo,… Illinois, but were driven from that home as well. Their leader, Joseph Smith, was arrested and martyred in Carthage, Illinois. An army actually showed up with a cannon to drive them out of Nauvoo, Illinois. They crossed the frozen Mississippi River and established a temporary settlement before they really knew where they were going. They considered Oregon and California before they heard reports about the valley of the Great Salt Lake.
Salt Lake City is located in Utah and is a city in Utah.
In Salt Lake City
Of course! In my experience living in the Salt Lake City area forthe past 26 years, I would say that approximately 40% of thedoctors are practicing members of the Church of Je…sus Christ ofLatter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church). Of course doctors are notrequired to reveal their religious beliefs and therefore it isimpossible to know which are Mormon unless you ask them.
There are more Mormons living in Salt Lake City than in ParkCity. While both cities are quite liberal by Utah standards andhave lower percentages of Mormons than the rest of n…orthern Utah,Salt Lake City has more.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon"church) does not publish membership statistics for any area smallerthan a state. However, I do know that the Salt …Lake City metro areahas many more Mormons (both in actual numbers and percentage) thanthe Boise metro area. I would assume, with Salt Lake City properhaving a higher population and being the headquarters of theChurch, that it has more Mormons than Boise.
