Title Ezra Clark, page 019
Description EZRA THOMPSON CLARK I9 lard Richards. Each division was divided into companies with one hundred wagons, and these into companies of fifty wagons, and ten wagons, every company under the direction of a captain. The first division, led by Brigham Young, consisted of 1,229 persons, with 397 wagons, 74 horses, 91 mules, 1,275 oxen, 699 cows, 184 loose cattle, 411 sheep, 141 pigs, 605 chickens, 37 cats, 82 dogs, 3 goats, IO geese, 2 hives of bees, 8 doves, and I crow. Ezra Clark was one of the captains in the second company under the leadership of Heber C. Kimball. There had b een a mild winter in the Salt Lake Valley in 1847, and it was possible to do late plowing. Most of the Saints remained at the Old Fort during the first winter. This fort consisted of ten acres of land on which was erected small adobe and log houses which were so ar- ranged that the people would have protection against an attack by Indians. Pioneer Park in Salt Lake City is situ- ated on the site of the Old Fort. The following spring, with the application of the mountain streams and the culti- vation of the land, the prospect of a bountiful supply of vegetables and grain was apparent on every hand. With this bright promise from the land of their new home, the pioneers were suddenly faced with a plague of crickets which mowed their crops down with every hour. Their helplessness in a situation where starvation might be their lot made them the more conscious of their dependence upon the Lord. The new manifestation of His love when the seagulls appeared in great swarms and devoured the crickets has been told many times. Something like half of their crops was saved. The arrival of the First Presidency in the fall of 1848
