    Sacramento Valley Mormon History

    Rhoads Family Pioneers

    In 1846/1847, Brigham Young led the main body of the Mormon Church westward. Many church members attempted other enterprising ways to make their west. One was Thomas Rhoads and his family.

    Rhoads was a Mormon convert living in Missouri after the Mormon extermination order there. In 1846 they came to California in the same wagon company as hated ex-governor Lilburn Boggs, traveling across the Sierra Nevada just a few weeks ahead of the ill-fated Donner Party.

    This group settled somewhere east of Sutter's Fort. Two sons were involved in the efforts to rescue the Donner Party. The family also discovered gold well ahead of the famous discovery by John Marshall at Sutter's Mill.

    Brown's Tavern

    Legendary Mormon frontiersman, Orrin Porter Rockwell, came to this region during the years of the gold rush. He found the hard work of gold mining distasteful, and soon opened three California Saloons, including one named Brown's Settlement or Brown's Tavern on Alder Creek, located about two miles south of Folsom. He used the alias of Brown since there were many former Missourians in the region who accused him of attempting to kill Governor Boggs a decade earlier. Brown's Settlement was used frequently for LDS church meetings held amongst the gold miners in this area. Apostles Lyman and Rich visited here frequently.

    Early Mormon Settlers

    Aaron and Mary Garlick
    LDS converts that immigrated from Great Britain in 1857 in poverty. Their home at 108 2nd Street was the site of numerous church meetings. For awhile he left the LDS branch to join the RLDS Branch and was even their branch president for a time before returning to the LDS branch in 1870.
