That came from the written 'oral' history we have from Margaret Cutshall. She said Zachary was educated at a NO monastery, then, in his 20's, he was taken to Colorado by a man named Young. Supposedly he took him there so he could restore his health and learn to ride horses. Maybe fresh air and horseback riding was considered a 'cure' back then? I wonder what illness befell Zachary and who Mr. Young was? I went to the trouble to trace the name "Young' and there was a store clerk names Young but I don't know if it was him. I also checked the names of Mormon agents in N.O. thinking that perhaps Brigham Young or, his sons were in N.O. at the time. Brigham Young did aid thousands of converts who were primarily streaming into N.O. from Europe at the time. And, he did order metal grill-work from artisans there but, there is no record of him spending time there. I had the thought Zachary might have traveled to CO, to a new Mormon settlement that sprung up after they left Iowa. But Zachary seems to have settled in Caldwell, KS and then, Indiana, where he met Margaret. But, I haven't found any further census records or evidence of his travels outside the one that mentions him working as a 'cow herder' and the marriage record, from KS. So, he remains a puzzle. He got a pretty good education while in New Orleans so, he may have finished his education at one of their several monasteries. So many records must be lost by now!
