Biographical Sketch of Zaccheus CHENEY (1818-1898)
Source:  Andrew Jenson.  1901.  LDS Biographical Encyclopedia: a Compilation of Biographical Sketches of Prominent Men and Women inthe Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  Andrew Jenson History Co., Salt Lake City, UT (online at Ancestry.com).
Cheney, Zaccheus, a member of the Mormon Battalion, Company B, was born April 22, 1818, at Semponeous (sic), Cayuga Co., New York, a son of Elijah Cheney.  His father served one year in the war of 1812.  Jared Carter preached, baptized and organized a branch of the Church in Onondaga County, N.Y., Elder Cheney's father being one of the number.  In 1835 the family moved to Kirtland, Ohio, where Zaccheus first saw the Prophet Joseph Smith.  Elder Cheney worked on the Temple, attended the Hebrew School, and was a member of the Nauvoo Legion.  He was in Nauvoo when some of the saints crossed the Mississippi River on the ice, and soon after Nauvoo was nearly evacuated.  He crossed the river at Fort Madison, May 3, 1846, and overtook the saints at Mount Pisgah, where he joined the Mormon Battalion and marched with them to California.  After his discharge he remained in San Francisco and helped to burn the first brick made in that city.  He married Mary Ann Fisher July 11, 1848, and on Dec. 25, 1850, his wife gave birth to a daughter. The wife died Jan. 1, 1851, and was buried near the San Jose Mission.  Brother Cheney came to Utah in 1857 (Nov. 3rd) and died at Centerville, Davis Co., March 7, 1898.
