Joseph Hyrum Levi is my Great Great Uncle on my mother's side of the family.
Joseph Hyrum Levi was the son of Frederick Levi, who was born 17 Oct. 1800 in Essex, Canada. His mother was Julia Ann
Carroll, born 16 Oct. 1800, at Cork, Ireland.
Born to them were the following children: David Levi born 18 May, 1833 at Essex Co., Canada; Mary Ann Levi born 3 July
1835 at Toronto, Canada; Charlotte Levi born 20 Dec. 1839 at Chilic, Hancock, Canada; Barbara Jane born 24 July 1837 at
Toronto, Canada; Joseph Levi born 30 Dec. 1844 at Keg Creek, Illinois.
Soon after the first Missionaries of the Church were sent into Canada, they made many converts. Barbara Jane's father,
mother, and their little family were converted, and it was around eight years between the time they left Canada until they
joined other Saints who were also going to Church Headquarters in Illinois.
Their youngest son was born at Keg Creek, Illinois. They lived in Nauvoo a short time when the Saints were leaving Nauvoo
for the trek westward. In 1852 the Levi family started West-going through all of the trials of pioneering. The Frederick
John Levi family traveled from Keg Creek, Iowa to Salt Lake City, Utah in the James Holt Company.
Members of the company were the following:
