|John Van Cott|
After his return, he yielded obedience to the law of plural marriage and took five wives, by whom he became the father of twenty-eight children. At the time of the move in 1858 (this refers to the incident involving the Saints and Johnson’s army), he was one of the men deputized to remain in the city and set fire to the property, in case the soldiers on their arrival in the Valley should prove hostile.
