The short answer is that the Mormons kept moving in an attempt to find somewhere they could live in peace. Despite various reasons raised by non-Mormons for their moves, the Saints declared that the PRIMARY reason for the need to uproot and move were mounting persecutions of various kinds, including literal slaughter and burnings of homes and properties, although other circumstances regarding each move were slightly different.
The Mormons moved west in search of a new home, not a new phone. Phones weren't even invented yet (this was in the 1840's). The Mormons had been persecuted and kicked out of Ohio, Missouri, and Illinois, so they went further west into what was then Mexico in search of a place where they could live in peace.
The Mormons faced extreme persecution across the east and midwest, being kicked out of their homes and in some cases ordered to leave by the government. They moved west to a land that was both outside of US control (at the time) and which was sparsely populated so that they could have the freedom to practice their religion in peace.
The Mormons moved west from New York to Ohio to Missouri to Illinois and finally to Utah (which was then part of Mexico) in search of a place where they could practice their religion in peace.Throughout the United States, the Mormons faced severe persecution for their religious practices and political beliefs. Mormons were not only mocked and had lies spread about them, they were robbed, beaten, forced from their homes, and killed. After the US government said that they could do nothing to protect the Mormons, they decided to move to Mexico in search of religious freedom. Shortly after settling near the Great Salt Lake in 1847, the area was acquired by the United States in the Mexican-American War and the Mormons were again in the United States. Utah became a state almost 50 years later in 1896.
The first members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints the "Mormon" church to arrive in what is now Nevada came in 1852 to establish a trading post there. In 1855, the first Mormon missionaries were sent to Nevada, and later groups of Mormons established cities throughout southern Nevada. During the Great Depression, Mormonism further spread in Nevada due to Mormons moving there in search of better economic conditions.
Nobody. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) was founded in the US - so the first Mormons were already in the US! :) If you are speaking of the first Mormons to move from another country to the US, rather than the first Mormons ever in the US, the answer is still nobody. The first Mormons to move from another country to the US came from Canada, and were not 'brought' by any specific person, only encouraged to move so that they could be nearer to the main body of the church.
