Title Caratat Conderset Rowe and the Mormon Battalion Sick Detachment
Description Utah, heading due north for Fort laxamie, west to Fort Bridger, and thence to Salt Lake. Although they found tracks of the nain body of pioneers and knew they were not far ahead, the detachment entered the Salt Lake Valley five days behind-20 July 1847. Their enlistment had expired on 16 July 1847. They were officially nustered out of the Army and once again came under the concand of Bri^iam Young, the nan they had followed for their beliefs. The erapty cabins at Pueblo were never occupied hy others. On 16 August 1847, 71 men, with 33 wagons and 92 yoke of oxen, some horses and miles, left the Valley and returned to the Missouri River area to rejoin the families they had left behind, Caratat anong then.15 There he narriec Jiary Napier, a demure red-haired Scottish lass; ti/o children v/ere born before they returned to Utah. Three more children were bom in what is now Payson, and their last child was born in Mt. Pleasant, where they went in early 1860, less than a year after its settlement. There Caratat died on 12 February 1904, not quite two years after Mary's death.14 His cousin William died 25 July 1905 and was buried in Thayne, Wyoming. Although Caratat and William did not make the long ?arch with the I'orcon Battalion, they left a heritage of commitment and loyalty, of responding to the call of their leaders. As 3. H. Roberts wrote: Since the Battalion march has not been equaled by any march of infantry. . . it is not likely ... that the i:orraon Battalion inarch across more than half the Uorth American continent v/ill ever be equaled.15 Caratat and V/illiam were a part of that march. Note: Caratat Conderset Roue was the author's great grandfather. 13
