Joseph was a veteran elder in the church. He and his wifewere baptized about 1840 and traveled across the country by wagon to Kirtland, Ohio, where they remained a short time and then continued the journey to Nauvoo, Illinois. They arrived the early part of 1841. After Joseph's death, the family remained until the exodus of 1846. One of the sons contracted a severe cold swimming cattle across the Missouri River at the time of the exodus--he died. He was the first man buried on the Nebraska side of the river. The family now consisted of the mother and her two sons, Nymphas Cordion and Joseph Stacey. They settled temporarily at Winter Quarters before coming to Utah in the Ira Eldredge Company of 1847. Comments: #21. Joseph was listed on the Continuing Church Record at Nauvoo.[2]
