This article is about the Mormon pioneer. For the English composer, see Joseph Holbrooke.

Joseph Holbrook (January 16, 1806 – November 14, 1885) was a Mormon pioneer in the U.S. territory of Utah.

Holbrook was born in Florence, New York, and died in Bountiful, Utah Territory.[1] Before Bountiful, Holbrook was in Clay County, Missouri, and was affected by the 1838 Mormon War.[2] Holbrook used his wagon to transport one of the cornerstone of the Far West temple;[3] the temple was never built and the four cornerstones remain in place in a park of sorts owned and managed by the LDS CHurch in Far West today. He was a member of Zion's Camp.
