Zerah Pulsipher

He was a captain of hundred. A printed version of Zerah Pulsipher's recollections mistakenly transcribed the date of his coming to Utah as 1847. The original manuscript clearly records the year of his travel as 1848, not 1847.  His birth and death dates are confirmed by his obituary and the inscription on his gravestone.
