John Burton

"I sent our colored man, John, with some feed grain and provisions to raise something for us to come to. He went as a teamster for a brother with the pioneers. . . They arrived in the Great Salt Lake Valley, 1847 . . . . We descended and entered the valley the first of October, 1848. . . . The next day I went south six or eight miles to see some corn that John our colored man had raised." (Joseph Lee Robinson, History of Joseph Lee Robinson, 65, 78)
