Myron Tanner, son of John Tanner and Elizabeth Beswick, was born June 7, 1826 in Bolton, Warren County, New York. Myron was baptized into the Latter-day Saint Church at an early age. On Christmas Day, 1834, the family left for Kirtland, Ohio to join with the Saints in that place. Myron enlisted in the Mormon Battalion in Company "D." On the march he became ill with chills and fever, then contracted the mumps. After this seige of illness he suffered much from an abscess in his head. During the march the men were forced to carry 16 pounds of equipment and when he could not keep up any longer with his comrades, his load was put on a wagon and later he was put in the wagon on the tops of barrels. This so injured his back that he suffered for years and was never able to do manual labor. Myron was sent with the sick detachment to Pueblo and was one of the Battalion boys who came into Salt Lake Valley on the 29th of July, 1847.

In August of that year he was sent back to the Missouri River to help immigrants coming into the Valley. In 1850 he went to work in the gold mines of California. In the year 1856, Myron married Mary Jane Mount and was sent to help in the settlement of Payson. In 1860 he moved to Provo where he married Ann Crosby in 1866. He was Bishop of the Third Ward for twenty-seven years. Mr. Tanner died

Myron Tanner, born in Bolton, New York, came to Salt Lake in 1847. Later he bought the Kelton Mill and home in the northwest part of Provo and moved his family there. It was a small molasses mill and was run by the Keltons for only a short time. Myron built onto it, remodeled and improved
it and added machinery necessary for grist milling. The mill was run by water power which he secured by changing the course of a ditch and running it down Sixth West street. The mill was located just west of Sixth West and between Third and Fourth north street. This new venture proved to be a very successful one. He soon made himself familiar with the milling business, bought two new farms, and kept teams moving almost constantly for years hauling flour from Provo to Salt Lake City.

Abraham O. Smoot called on Myron and expressed a desire he put his mill into the new organization. "The factory needs the mill," he told him. It already had one, but it was President Smoot's intention to make Myron Tanner superintendent of both his own mill and the one owned by the woolen factory. The proposition was not very acceptable. Myron Tanner had business ideas that were somewhat peculiar, and he preferred to keep his own mill, which was bringing him in a large income. The desirability of the new movement was urged upon him and had become so strongly associated with the religious spirit of the
time, that it seemed almost like religious indifference to withstand the very general counsel to act in an organized manner through the medium of business corporations.

As a result, President Brigham Young decided that if Myron Tanner would exchange one-half of his mill for stock in the Provo Woolen Mills that would be satisfactory, and that he should have the privilege of managing his own mill. This proved, in a measure, a financial disaster. What, however, was as great, was the unwillingness of the new corporation to permit improvements that the progress of the milling industry absolutely demanded, and after many years of such dissatisfaction he finally sold out his share of the gristmill. During this time the mill had earned thousands of dollars for the factory, but the factory brought comparatively nothing to Myron Tanner. The old gristmill was finally sold to a Mr. Nestler who operated Provo's first and only brewery. - Marion Tanner

Dudley went to Hallowell, Maine where he served an apprenticeship with his elder brother [Samuel Greenleaf Ladd] at the tinsmith trade. In 1815 he removed to Salisbury East Village, (now Franklin) where he began the manufacture of lead pipe in the old Silas (?) Eastman iron wire workshop, standing near the outlet of Webster Lake Brook, near the Clement carriage shop; his shop was carried away during one of the great freshets. He did much piping for aqueducts in this state, as well as in Vermont and Maine, and much of his work is still seen about the village of Franklin, which speaks well for his usefulness and thoroughness. When the statehouse was built at Concord, in 1818, he took the contract for the tinning of the dome, which he did from a swinging stage. While working there one cold windy day his staging caught fire and but for rare presence of mind would have burned so as to have precipitated him to the ground. In 1833 he built the residence of Edwin C. Stone, and the store; the latter was not rented for some years after its completion because he would not allow liquor sold on its premises. As a man of wealth, he erected a number of buildings and did much for the prosperity of the place. Mr. Ladd was a strong anti-slavery advocate and often secreted slaves on their way north to liberty, for which he was once arrested, but the case never went to trial. He was honorable in his dealings, a strict temperance advocate, and a devout Christian, being one of the pillars of the Congregational church erected at that place, having united with the church in 1837. He died March 20, 1875. The first stoves in aforesaid church were a gift from him, being cast at his foundry, which stood near the present Taylor foundry. He was chairman of the committee on building the church and gave personal and pecuniary aid in its alteration, about 1834. He married (1) May 21, 1823, Charlotte, daughter of Ebenezer Eastman, who died Jan. 30, 1826. Married (2) Dec 24, 1837, Amanda Palmer of Orford, who still resides at Franklin [1890]."

Isabella's mother, Ann Pilkington came from a well known family. She was a descendant of Sir Alexander Pilkington. Ann was baptized at age 46, on July 22, 1841. Isabella would have been 16 years old at the time of mother's baptism. Isabella was baptized at age 23 on June 27, 1849. No doubt she was well acquainted with the young married couple Hugh and Jane Hilton who lived in their same area. Little did she realize that she would someday become Hugh's second wife.

Isabella was described as being of medium height and weight with large blue eyes and light brown hair.
Hugh, Isabella and Charles arrived in Salt Lake City in November 1850. The marriage of Hugh and Isabella was eternalized as they were sealed in the endowment house November 13, 1855. In November 1857 the Saints were shocked to hear of the impending invasion of Johnston's army. Hugh was called to go with Major Lot Smith eastward in a effort to delay the progress of the Army. While he was away their child John Hugh was born on November 17, 1857.
Hugh, Isabella and their young family moved to Virgin in November 1861. They had two large wagons which they had purchased from the army as well as a large army tent. The pioneer world of Isabella was very demanding and she developed great skills to cope with this primitive culture such as carding wool, spinning yarn, weaving cloth, making clothes, making soap and tallow candles, and weaving carpets. She also enjoyed raising flowers for both the yard and the interior of their home. Isabella was an accomplished hostess. In 1863 Isabella and Hugh had the opportunity to entertain President Brigham Young and his party as they traveled through Virgin City.
She was a good soprano singer, and participated in the ward choir. She also joined with Hugh in dramatic presentations. She was always faithful in the Church and very active in the Relief Society.
Hugh passed away 19 September 1873. Isabella died four years later on June 4, 1877. They were buried side by side and there is now a dual marker placed over their graves.

16 "Americana, Volume 10: Some Heroic Women of the Revolution", pg 896-9: "Susanna Keith - The picture of this courageous woman, though inanimate, seems in the strength and beauty of the features to tell the story of a useful life more perfectly than can any written words. The picture has an especial interest for the writer [J.C. Pumpelly because it was loaned to him by his much esteemed friend and compatriot, Mary Vanderpoel, the granddaughter of Susanna Keith and the regent of the Mary Washington Colonial Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Susanna Keith was the daughter of Captain Joseph Keith of Taunton, Massachusetts, and she came honestly by her fighting blood, for her grandfather on her mother's side was Captain Benjamin Williams, who commanded a company in Colonel Thomas's regiemnt and took part in the bloody battles of Lake George and Crown Point. It was destined that little Susanna Keith should save old Taunton town by her quick wit, from the savages of the British when in 1776, they were marching down from Concord to forage in the name of the crown. The story of this episode has been so well told by Mrs. Julia Hubbell Treat, historian of the chapter of which Miss Vanderpoel is regent, in a poem called "a Tale of Taunton Town," that I give it here in full.
A Tale of Taunton Town.
The news was flying through Taunton Town,
'To-morrow, the British are marching down
To Concord, for forage in name of the Crown.
Lescinton first may be their goal,
Up, up! ye captains, and call the roll
And gather the men from meadow and knoll.
Now who is this who hither runs?
'Tis Captain Keith, and his stalwart sons
Are just behind, with their swords and guns.
'Muster the men,' the Captain cries,
As the summons about the village flies,
'Or the English will take us by surprise!'
They left the mill, the loom, the plough,
They heeded not the lowing cow,
The only thought for them, was how
By road and forest, hill and dale,
They'd soonest reach the peaceful vale,
Ere long to echo with the wail
Of wife bereft, of sonless sire,
Of tramp of redcoats coming nigher,
And call of 'Steady men, now fire!'
To the powder-house with one accord
They rushed to view their cherished hoard
Of shot and powder, gun and sword.
But oh, alas, for their hope and fear!
Three charges only, for each appear!
What news, for valorous men to hear!
The women had followed with faces pale;
Though brave as the men they did not quail;
And the children's courage too did not fail
For out stepped little Susanna Keith
Wither kerchief and cap, and eyes beneath
Swimming with tears, but not of grief.
'I know a way, my father,' she said,
Drooping a little her dainty head;
'Come all with me;' and away she sped.
To her father's house upon the green---
As fine a house as e'er was seen---
With leaded window, and pillars between.
To the dresser she led the gaping crowd:
'There are your bullets!' she cried so proud
That her childish voice range clear and loud.
Upon the shelves stood the pewter plates
With coats-of-arms, and early dates
Of sixteen twenty and thirty, mates
Of teapot, and creamer, pitcher, and bowl.
All were perfect, and bright, and whole,
Stamped with a unicorn, 'cheek by jowl.'
The pride of the house, the dower which came
To Captain Keith's fair stately dame,
Descended fro fam'ly of noble name.
All turned to the mistress in great surprise--
'Take them!' she said, with bright, flashing eyes,
'Thank God for a child so brave ans wise!'
The cheers went up from the men until
The rafters rung, and then with a will
They melted the pewter, the moulds to fill.
All through the night, till the glimmering day
They worked, and the child worked hard as they,
Till their pouches were full, and they marched away.
So this is the tale of Susanna Keith,
In honor of whom I lay this wreath
Of humble verse, on her grave beneath
The Taunton skies, by the river fair,
Near the ancient house still standing there,
To tell what a child may do and dare!
For she lived, and wedded in Taunton Town,
And sent her brave blood coursing down
Through the veins of many of fair renown
Till her grand daughter's child, with eyes as blue,
And spirit as earnest, and purpose as true,
Is, my friends, your Regent, now looking at you!"

20 "John English, master mariner, was a typical English seaman during the time of iron men and wooden ships, when Britannia ruled the waves and the sun never set on the British Empire. Born of a family of surgeons, his father, William, and his grandfather, Thomas, were both practicing surgeons in South Blyth, Northumberland. John was expected to follow in their footsteps, but his heart was at sea, and as a lad he shipped before the mast as a cabin boy and worked his way up through the ranks until he was a Sea Captain in the mighty merchant fleet of Great Britain.
" July 15, 1849 John died the night following his boarding the ship in Amsterdam, Holland, and was buried at sea."

24 "The late Doc Sorensen was a man of many hats - football player, veterinarian, politician, mayor, legislator, law enforcement officer, but mostly, he was a cowboy.

"He and the late Everett Colborn founded the Colborn & Sorensen Rodeo Co. in the early 1930s and produced rodeos throughout the Northwest. When Colborn moved to Texas, Sorensen and his family created the Flying U Rodeo Co. and produced the Las Vegas (Nev.)

After 30 years in the stock contracting business, Sorensen sold the outfit to Cotton Rosser of Marysville, California.

"Sorensen attended Colorado A&M, where he played football and graduated with a doctorate of veterinary medicine. He had a vet practice for several years. Sorensen stayed very busy by serving as a state brand inspector, an Idaho State Legislator, Idaho State Director of Law Enforcement, Mayor of Roberts, Idaho, and the director and manager of the Idaho State Fair, where he later served as the Grand Marshal of its parade. He was named Jefferson County Senior Cattleman of the Year in 1981, due in part to being the first person to have Black Angus cattle in the state of Idaho. He was inducted into the National Cowboy Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City in 1988 and was inducted into the Idaho Hall of Fame in 2000.

pages 15-17
Thomas^1 Fox of Concord, Mass., was an Englishman who emigrated to America prior to March, 1644, at which time he was elected a freeman of the Massachusetts Colony. His name appears on the rolls of the Concord church. According to one authority he came to America in 1630, in the train of Governor Cradock. Thomas of Concord was married twice. By his first wife, Rebecca, he had children: Mary^2, born September 18, 1642, Elizabeth^2, born September 18, 1642, twins; Eliphalet^2, born 1644.
Rebecca, his first wife, died May 11, 1647.
Thomas married for his second wife Hannah Brooks, daughter of Henry Brooks, of Woburn, Mass. They were married December 13, 1647, and had children: Hannah, born September 25, 1648; Thomas, born February 26, 1649-50; Samuel, born 1651; John, born about 1653; David, born about 1656; Isaac, born October 17, 1657.
It will be noted that the above assignment of children to the second wife of Thomas^1 Fox of Concord, does not follow Savage, the genealogist, who made a manifest error in including a daughter Mary.

According to the book, "History of the Kimball Family in America..." which can be found online here: (see page 51), Samuel Kimball married September 20, 1676, Mary Witt, daughter of John and Sarah Witt of Lynn, Massachusetts. This is true. However, other sources claim that Mary Witt, daughter of John and Sarah, married at Lynn one Samuel Stocker, 6 June 1666, and it was her sister Martha, born 5 March 1658/9, who married Samuel Kimball in 1676. (For example, see The Witt Genealogy, which can be found online here: This is false. The Mary who married Samuel Stocker in 1666 was this Mary's sister-in-law, the widow of her brother Jonathan. There is ample evidence of this, including the fact that after his death, Jonathan's daughter picked her step-father, Samuel Stocker, as her guardian.

There is no birth record for Mary. There is, however, compelling proof that the wife of Samuel Kimball had to have been born about 1660, or perhaps just a little before.
If Mary was born about 1660 she would have been about 16 years old when she married Samuel Kimball. Her first child was born in 1677 and she continued to have children until Jerusha was born in 1703. If she was born in 1660 then she would have been 43 years old at the time her last child was born. This is probably about the right time frame - women in the 1670s would not likely have been married any earlier than about 16 years old, and could not have children any later than about 43 years old. She spent more than 26 years having children, which is about the absolute maximum possible.
In Wenham vital records, the following marriage record appears:
Kimball, Samuell and Marah Witt, Sept. 20, 1676.
This name, Marah, looks not quite like Mary, and not quite like Martha.
Several of Samuel's children have birth listings in Wenham vital records:
Kimball, Samuell, s. Samuell, Aug. 19, 1677. CTR
Kimball, Sarah, d. Samuell, 6: 7m: 1678. CTR
Kimball, John, s. Samuell, Nov. 13, 1687. CTR
Kimball, Thomas, s. Samuel and Mary, Feb. 22, 1695-6.
Kimball, Benjamin, s. Samuel and Marey, Apr. 17, 1698.
Kimball, Abbigall, d. Samuel, sr. and Marey, May 25, 1700.
Kimball, Jerushah, d. Samuell, sr. and Mary, Apr. 30, 1703.
In addition to the above information in Wenham vital records, the above-referenced book on the Kimball family supplies a birthdate for the "first' Martha of 24 May, 1680.

In all, this couple had 13 children - a very large family. The other children have only estimated birth dates in the Kimball book. See page 51.

So, it is a fact that in the birth records of many of his children, Samuel Kimball's wife is listed as "Mary" or "Marey" and not Martha. There is a record in Lynn for what is likely the birth of her younger sister, and it looks like this:
Witt, Martha, d. John and Sara, 5: 1m: 1658-9. CTR
John Witt's will, written in 1675 (see his listing on, mentions married daughter Ann Barnitt (Barney), daughter Elizabeth, daughter Sarah, unmarried daughter Marye unmarried daughter Martha, son John Witt, son Thomas Witt, wife Sarah, grandchild Hester Witt (and her father Jonathan Witt).
I am not sure when she died. There is a listing in Wenham vital records that looks like this:
Kimball, Mary, wid., at Beverly, Oct. 28, 1729. CR
and I think this is her husband's listing in Wenham vital records:
Kimball, Sameul, Ens., Oct. 3, 1716. 
Witt, Mary (I102944)
