Orrin Porter Rockwell was born 28 June 1813 in Balchertown,Hampshire,Mass.he died 9 June, 1878.He had 3 wives, Lunan Hart Beebe born 3 Oct. 1814 in Lebanon, Madison, NY: Mary Ann Neff and Christina Olsen.His parents wer Oren Rockwell and Sarah Witt.He had 3 children by Luana: Emily Rockwell (my G G Grandmother) born abt. 1835 in MO.; Orrin Porter Rockwell B: 27 oct. 1839 Nauvoo, Hancock, Ill.; Caroline Stewart Rockwell B: abt. 1837 in Independence, Jackson, MO. and Sarah Rockwell, B: 25 Mar. 1840/1 in Independence, Jackson, Mo.
These children were sealed to Alpheus Cutler second husband and to their mother Luana Beebe, 21 Jan.1852. Mother sealed to second husband 14 Jan. 1846.The story in my family is that Orrin ran away with one of Brigham Youngs wives and Young sent 6 of his guards after them.Orrin was to have killed all 6 men.This is not documented on paper but is in the family stories.
I hope this helps.
