Zerubbabel Snow was an early leader in the Latter Day Saint movement, a Mormon pioneer, and an Attorney General of the Territory of Utah. Snow was born in St. Johnsbury, Vermont. Snow was taught about Mormonism from missionaries Orson Pratt and Lyman E. Johnson. He was baptized into the Church of Christ in 1832. On August 23, 1832, Snow and Amasa M. Lyman were ordained to the priesthood office of elder by Joseph Smith, Jr. and Frederick G. Williams, and the two of them immediately departed on a proselytizing mission. In 1833, Snow returned to Vermont and married Susan Slater Lang. He remained in Vermont until 1834, when he went to Ohio to become a member of Smith's Zion's Camp expedition to Missouri. His wife Susan Slater Lang died in Ohio after delivering their only child, a daughter, Susan Lizette Snow born March 14, 1841 who was later the wife of Orson Pratt Jr. After the death of his wife Susan, Snow married Mary Augusta Hawkins on August 25, 1841.
