  • Name Moses DEMING  [1
    • "Deming Genealogy": Moses Deming with his wife moved from Williamstown to Michigan, and for many years his relatives heard nothing from him. It was finally learned that he had joined the Mormons, and emigrated with them to Utah. It is said that he had a daughter by his first wife, who died young, and that his wife soon followed her. Whether or not his affiliation with the Mormons occurred before her death, is not known. After diligent inquiries in Salt Lake City, the following facts have been learned: Moses Deming did not come to Utah with the first colony of Mormons,but was a member of the band called the "Seventies," which left Nauvoo, Ill., in 1848. He acquired some prominence in the Mormon church of "Latter Day Saints", and possessed considerable property, owning at his death about twelve acres in the city limits. He had three wives, including the one he married in Massachusetts who may have did before he married his second wife. B his first wife he had one child, and by the second wife three children, all of whom are dead. By his third wife, who is still living in Salt Lake City, he had six children, three of whom are living; Granville and Frank in Coalville, Utah, and Miles in Salt Lake City. His second wife was Maria Kitter, but his third wife, who came from England, refuses to give her family name. [1]
