Zacheus Cheney

A veteran of the Mormon Battalion, Zacheus Cheney, a settler of Utah in 1857, lived and died respected and esteemed by a wide circle of friends and acquaintances.  His birthday was April 22, 1818; the place Sempronius, Cayuga county, New York.  His parents were Elijah and Achsa Thompson Cheney.  He lived in Cayuga county until six years of age and then moved with his father's family to Scott, Courtland county, where he attended school.  When old enough, he helped his father in clearing the timber from his land.  It was a good farm of fifty acres and a very comfortable home.  Elijah Cheney, a veteran of the war of 1812, had been baptized a Latter-day Saint and ordained an Elder in 1833, and it was he, with Zera Pulsipher, who introduced Mormonism to Wilford Woodruff, the future Apostle and President.  Zacheus was baptized in May, 1834.
