This is my ancestor who was in the Mormon battalion

Samuel Hollister Rogers (1819-1891) was a member of the Mormon Battalion.

Samuel H. Rogers was born on March 1, 1819, in Palmyra, Ohio, to parents Chandler Rogers and Amanda Hollister. In 1837, when he was nineteen-years-old, he was baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Shortly after, in 1838, he and his family moved to Far West, Missouri, to be with other Church members. In 1840, Rogers was called and ordained as a member of The Quorum of the Seventy. He married Anna Matilda Doolittle on March 7, 1850, in Salt Lake City, Utah, and together they had eight children. He and his family helped build and guard the Nauvoo temple in Illinois and went west with the Saints when they immigrated to Utah. He was also a private in Company B of the Mormon Battalion.

Samuel Hollister Rogers died on September 22, 1891, in Snowflake, Arizona.
