Biographical Note

James Henry Martineau (1828-1921) was a Mormon convert who is perhaps best known as a territorial, federal, and railroad (Union Pacific) surveyor. He was, as well, a settler, clerk, cartographer, photographer, and engineer. Although Martineau was acquainted with many upper-echelon Mormon leaders (including Brigham Young), he did not attain high-ranking status in the Church. Eventually he did, however, have four plural wives and more than twenty children.

Martineau arrived in Salt Lake City in 1850 while on his way to California from New York. While in Utah he converted to Mormonism. He completed a variety of surveys in southern Utah before serving as an officer in the Nauvoo legion during the Utah War of 1857-58. In 1860 he settled in Cache Valley as the county surveyor and the U.S. deputy internal revenue collector. In 1888 he moved his families to Colonia Juarez in Mexico, although in 1903 he moved back to Salt Lake City.
