Photocopy of a microfilm reproduction of a typed manuscript. The item is a biography of Anson Call by an unnamed author. The date of composition is uncertain. Anson Call was born in Fletcher, Franklin County, Vermont on 13 May 1810. Call married Mary Flint and later joined the Mormon Church. "He was closely associated with the Prophet Joseph [Joseph Smith, 1805-1844], and with the saints was driven from his home. He had a great love the the Prophet and did all he could to protect him from the mobs." Smith once said of Call: "There is Anson. He shall go [to the West] and shall assist in building cities from one end of the country to the other." Call started West in a company led by Brigham Young, the second president of the Mormon Church. Call came to Salt Lake City, Utah, in 1848. He helped settle Bountiful, the Little Salt Lake Valley, "Pauvant Valley" (Fillmore), Box Elder and Davis Counties, all in Utah, and Carson Valley, Nevada. "The prophetic words of the prophet Joseph were literally fulfilled in his behalf."
