Zerah Pulsipher was known as a pillar of the early Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He baptized the man who would become one of the most powerful influences on Mormon history (Wilford Woodruff), served as a president of the Quorum of the Seventy, and helped lead Saints across the continental United States--both from Kirtland, Ohio to Far West, Missouri and from Winter Quarters, Nebraska to Salt Lake City, Utah. While far from perfect, he made contributions to every community he settled in, serving others, building up the Kingdom of God as best he knew how, and providing valuable leadership. Most importantly, he left a large family to the world that has continued to give valuable contributions wherever they may be found.
This website's primary purpose is to provide all the documents available about Zerah Pulsipher in an easily-accessible format. It is hoped that this will increase understanding of both family and LDS Church history as it relates to the Pulsipher family. It is also hoped that this website may become a forum for Pulsipher family activity as well.
Please note that this is a work in progress and will take some time to bring up to full potential.
