Elisha H. Groves
Elisha Hurd Groves (November 5, 1797 – December 29, 1867), at times misidentified as Elisha B. Groves, was a 19th-century mid-level leader in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) and a member of the first Utah Territorial Legislature.
Groves joined the LDS Church in the early 1830s and was involved in missionary work in Kentucky, Tennessee and Missouri. He served as a missionary with Morris Phelps in Calhoun County, Illinois in 1834, where they baptized 16 people. In 1840 he was one of the earliest LDS missionaries to serve in Wisconsin Territory.
