Langley, ed., To Utah mith the Dragoons and Glimpses of Life in Arizona and California, 1858- 1859 (Salt Lake City: Universty of Utah Press, 1974). Langley was a private and gave more detail to the matter of deserters. (See pp. 22, 25, 26, 50, 105, 120, 129, 139.) William A. Cureton in his autobiography describes encounters with the army and deserters in his camp in 1858. Cureton, "Trekking to California," Bancroft Library, p. 53. `5The case of Thomas B. Marsh, his defection and return to the church, is an interesting one. Marsh, born in Acton, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, was a Methodist who in 1830 became a Mormon. In 1831 he moved to Kirtland to be at the seat of the church, but in 1832 moved to Jackson County, Missouri.

Archives), the incident that caused his defection was a quarrel between Mrs. Marsh and Mrs. George W. Harris over pooling milk and making cheese from the joint enterprise. Mrs. Marsh was accused of skimming off the cream before the milk was delivered for the cheese. The husbands, Thomas B. and George W., became involved in the dispute. The case went to the High Council where Joseph Smith decided against Marsh and his wife. Marsh claimed Joseph was wrong
