One of the pioneers was my ancestor. Chauncey Griswold Webb owned a blacksmith shop in Ohio, then moved with the Latter-day Saints to Nauvoo, Illinois. The shop still stands in Nauvoo and we visited there a few years ago.
He built the covered wagon that Brigham Young used to journey west and accompanied him into the Salt Lake Valley on July 24, 1847. Chauncey was related to William Shakespeare. You never know who you’ll run into in the Wild West.
