From the life of Cleo Heavener: My grandpa was James Madison Pierce, who joined the Mormon Church in Rochester, Stratford, New Hampshire. He loved to tell me that he’d held a knife to Parley P. Pratt’s throat more times than he could count. Grandpa was a barber, and Parley P. gave him the missionary lessons while Grandpa gave him a haircut and shaved his beard. Grandpa went to Nauvoo, Winter Quarters, and on to Utah and settled in Springville.
