Book Synopsis
The life of John Chamberlain Badger began at a time of great spiritual awakening in the United States. While just a young boy, his parents became converts of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints when the faith was still in its infancy. John was an eye witness to the growth of the church, the many religious persecutions that took place, and became personally acquainted with most of its leaders including the prophet, Joseph Smith, Jr. and his family. He lived in Kirtland, Ohio, Far West, Missouri, Nauvoo, Illinois, Winter Quarters, Nebraska and Salt Lake City, Utah Territory as the spiritual center of the church moved westward.
“n many ways he was a paradox. While it is known that he had some education, was a reader of the scriptures, and could speak some Native American languages, he didn’t leave any kind of journal or even a written word beyond a signature on an army payroll.

About The Author
Author bio image
David Von Badger was born and raised in Rupert, Idaho where he still resides with his wife Kristie. He holds degrees from Utah State University and Lesley University. He was a German teacher and librarian at Burley High School for 31 years. Since retiring in 2016, he has been working on family history projects.
As a child he often attended the John Chamberlain Badger Family Reunion, but was never clear about who John was. In 1981 Lenore Rose published a book entitled “John Chamberlain Badger Families” which provided basic information about the man, but many colorful details of his life were yet to be discovered. After years of research, this book more completely tells his story.
