Title Ezra Clark, page 021
Description EZRA THOMPSON CLARK 21 Old Fort was abandoned and President Young laid out the city of Salt Lake in 1849. Ezra Clark decided that Farmington should be his per- manent home. In the spring of 1850 he moved his family to Farmington and planted ten acres of wheat with five bushels. Th e enormous yield was five hundred bushels. Ezra's four brothers-William O., Barret B., Homer, and Wesley Clark-and their sister, Rhoda, with her fam- ily arrived in Salt Lake Valley in 1850. William 0.`~ diary reads : "July 12. At 3 o'clock we came down out of the moun- tain and landed in the city of the Saints. The first view presents nothing in the shape of a city of six thousand in- habitants, but as you come to go over the city you will not dispute the population. The crops look fine. We camped near the Warm Springs. The 13th we took up the line of march to my brother's, arriving at 3 o'clock p.m. They made us glad. Found them all well. In all the valley they seem to enjoy good health. Sunday, July 14: We drove down to the city to Church, which was a great bowery on the temple block." According to the United States census returns for the year 1850, the population of the Valley of Great Salt Lake was 11,354 persons. Ezra Clark supplied his brothers with fresh teams. After resting a week, visiting with friends, and preparing to con- tinue their journey, William 0.2 party joined a train of two hundred wagons on their way to California, which countrv William 0. refers to as the "Land of Gold."
