From the life of Elizabeth Marriott Burton: They soon made their way to Kaysville where Robert set up a blacksmith shop. They had four more children and spent the rest of their lives in Kaysville. Their home was used as their meeting house until the church was completed across the street from their home.
The family had to move south at the time Johnston’s Army was approaching the Valley. When they returned, they found that Indians had occupied their home, using the wooden floor for firewood, and they had turned their horses to feed in their wheatfield.
