Moses Martin Sanders

Moses initially emigrated to the Great Salt Lake Valley in the 1849 Allen Taylor Company with his second wife, Mary Jane Sanderson Sanders; his step-daughter, Mary Louisa Sanderson; and his son, David Walker Sanders. The rest of his family came a year later in the 1850 Warren Foote Company.

Several years later, Moses also participated in the group of men that rescued the handcart companies that were stranded in Wyoming the winter of 1856.
