He attended Rrighant Young-accompanying hint on the just completed expedition to Salmon River. Sprague filled a mission for the Mormons to Scandinavia in 1863-66. He died in Salt Lake in 1900. Jensen, Riographical Encyclopedia, 4~374. "2Parley P. Pratt, brother of Orson, was one of the great explorers, orators, and missionaries of the Mormons. He joined the Mormon church in the year of its organization, 1830, and became one of Joseph Smith's original Twelve .4postles. Hc came to Utah in 1847 and in 1848-49 carried out an extensive survey of the southern part of the territory-returning with reports of good farm land and mineral deposits. He opened a less steep road into the valley in 1850 to serve the forty-niners. The canyon through which his Golden Pass Road crossed the Wasatch Range still bears his name. Pratt served the church on numerous missions, to Chile and California in 1851 and again to California in 1854 where he met Mrs. Eleanor McLean (also spelled McLain and McLane) who was having marital problems. She left her husband and small children and came to Salt Lake where she became a polygamous wife of Parley on November 14, 1855. In 1856 Pratt was called on a mission to New York. His new wife accompanied hirn- hoping en route to regain her children. Since there had never been a divorce, Hector H. McLean took after the "wife stealer" and shot him as Parley P. was ttying to flre from Arkansas.
