1001 Governor of Ohio, Judge, U.S. Diplomat. Born in Middletown, Vermont, he moved to Canada to live with his uncle when he was 15 years old. He was conscripted to serve in the Canadian Army during the War of 1812. He deserted, fled back to the United States, and joined the Army near the end of the war. After the war, he returned to Vermont and studied law. He was admitted to the bar and commenced to practice as an attorney in Vermont. Wood moved to Cleveland, Ohio in 1818 and resumed his legal profession. Elected to the Ohio State Senate as a Democrat in 1825, he served until he was elected by the Ohio General Assembly as Judge of the Court of Common Pleas. In 1833, he became a Justice of the Ohio Supreme Court and served in that capacity until 1847. Wood was elected as Ohio's 21st Governor and served from 1850 to 1853. He campaigned against slavery, was strongly opposed to the fugitive slave laws, and favored hard currency. He resigned on July 13th to accept appointment as United States Consul to Chile. He returned to America in 1855 and retired to his farm near Rockport, Ohio. Known as the "Old Chief of the Cuyahogas," he died at his residence in 1864. He was initially buried at his farm in Cuyahoga County and was later removed to Woodland Cemetery in Cleveland. His father, Reverend Nathaniel Wood, was a minister and Chaplain in the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. (bio by: Kevin Guy)

1009 Hanchetts from Odell Book by Harry Odell
The Hanchett family in England is a unit, small in number and compact geographically, and the common relationship of all the different branches is very apparent. Thus we may say with considerable confidence that at the time of the birth of Deacon Thomas Hanchett, all the Hanchetts in existence could be found within a fifty mile circle having for its center the point of junction of the shires of Cambridge, Herts and Essex.
Also generally known is that all American Hanchetts descend from Deacon Thomas Hanchett, who first appears as the owner of a house lot in Wethersfield, Massachusetts Bay (now Connecticut) in 1642. He must have been a young man probably about 21-31 years, and had been here for several years before this first notice. There was also a John Hanchett of Roxbury and Boston, who was here as early as 1634. John's line died out in the second generation as to male issue of the name Hanchett, he is supposed to be Thomas's brother.
Both John and Deacon Thomas were Puritans and Deacon Thomas was founder and deacon of the celebrated church at Northampton.
The name Hanchett is English and the family has been there over 200 years. In the 1400 the family went by the name of Hanchache, but in the year 1392 the then head of the family was beheaded for treason on account of having taken part in the insurrection and his estates were forfeited to the crown.This event may have led to the changes, at anyh rate the Hanchett's thereafter generally used the name in present form.
The original name Hanchache and the Hanchett name is not loosely guesswork but established fact.
The earliest location of the family is at the little parish of Shody Camps, which is the extreme southern portion of Cambridshire, very near the junction point of that shire and Essex and Suffolk. R. A.H. Johnson tells us that two or three miles from Shody Camps there is today a small moder farmhouse that goes by the name of Hanchett Hall, and that a corner of the road not far off is called Hanchet End.
In July 1861, Deacon Thomas was on the payroll for a mill dam at New London. He was there 3 years. Also Thomas' sons John and Thomas, Jr. each received 40 acres, Suffield when Thomas, Sr. got his 60, these being among the original Proprietors of Suffield.

1018 Has Edward II killed in Thomas De Berkeley Castle, Thoms is his son-in law, tried and killed.
Roger de Mortimer, 8th Baron of Wigmore, 3rd Baron Mortimer and 1st Earl of March (born 1287? - died 29 November 1330, Tyburn, near London, England) lover of Isabella, the wife of Edward II of England: they invaded England in 1326 and compelled the king to abdicate in favour of his son, Edward III; executed.

From The Execution of Roger Mortimer by Kathryn Warner (2006):

"Roger Mortimer was a fascinating man who deserves to be much better known. He was intelligent, competent, and ruthless, and, in the end, proof of the adage that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Power went to his head at least as much as it did to Hugh Despenser's, and he repeated the avaricious and tyrannical mistakes of the previous favorite, and added a few of his own."

"Thanks to Edward III's lack of vindictiveness, however, Roger's descendants thrived in the later fourteenth century. His grandson Roger was restored to the earldom of March in 1354, his great-grandson Edmund married Edward III's granddaughter Philippa of Clarence, and his great-great-grandson Roger was heir to the throne of England in the late 1390s."

Biographical summary
(mostly from Wikipedia retrieved 03 May 2014)

The descendant of Norman knights who had accompanied William the Conqueror, he inherited wealthy family estates and fortunes, principally in Wales and Ireland, and in 1304 became 8th Baron of Wigmore on the death of his father, the 7th baron. He devoted the early years of his majority to obtaining effective control of his Irish lordships against his wife’s kinsmen, the Lacys, who summoned to their aid Edward Bruce, brother of King Robert I of Scotland, when he was fighting to become king of Ireland. In 1316 Mortimer was defeated at Kells and withdrew to England, but afterward, as King Edward II’s lieutenant in Ireland (November 1316), he was largely instrumental in overcoming Bruce and in driving the Lacys from Meath.

In 1317 he was associated with the Earl of Pembroke’s “middle party” in English politics; but distrust of the Despensers (see Despenser, Hugh Le and Hugh Le) drove him, in common with other marcher lords, into opposition and violent conflict with the Despensers in South Wales in 1321. But, receiving no help from Edward II’s other enemies, Roger and his uncle Roger Mortimer of Chirk made their submission in January 1322. Imprisoned in the Tower of London, Roger escaped in 1323 and fled to France, where in 1325 he was joined by Queen Isabella, who became his mistress. The exiles invaded England in September 1326; the fall of the Despensers was followed by the deposition of Edward II and his subsequent murder (1327), in which Mortimer was deeply implicated.

Thereafter, as the queen’s paramour, Mortimer virtually ruled England. He used his position to further his own ends. Created Earl of March in October 1328, he secured for himself the lordships of Denbigh, Oswestry, and Clun, formerly belonging to the Earl of Arundel; the marcher lordships of the Mortimers of Chirk; and Montgomery, granted to him by the queen. His insatiable avarice, his arrogance, and his unpopular policy toward Scotland aroused against Mortimer a general revulsion among his fellow barons, and in October 1330 the young king Edward III, at the instigation of Henry of Lancaster, had him seized at Nottingham and conveyed to the Tower. Condemned for crimes declared to be notorious by his peers in Parliament, he was hanged at Tyburn as a traitor, and his estates were forfeited to the crown.

Roger Mortimer was born on either 25 April or 3 May 1287 at Thornbury, Herefordshire, son of Sir Edmund Mortimer, Lord of Wigmore, and Margaret de Fiennes. On 29 July 1304 the wardship of his lands was granted to Piers Gaveston. On 30 December 1304 Roger had permission to pay off his father's debts at the rate of £20 a year. On 9 April 1306, although still under age, he was given control of his lands, apparently having satisfied Piers Gaveston by paying him 2,500 marks for licence to marry.

On 22 May 1306 he was made a knight with many others by the king at Westminster at the same time as the prince of Wales. Before 6 October 1306 he married Joane de Geneville, daughter of Piers de Geneville, 2nd lord Geneville, and Jeanne de Lusignan, dame de Couhe et de Peyrat. Twelve children would survive into adulthood, four sons and eight daughters, of whom one son Edmund and six daughters would have progeny. Some time in 1306 he performed service in Scotland, and in October his lands were seized, as he was one of those who left the king's service there without permission. However, he was pardoned in the following January and his lands were restored at the intercession of Queen Margaret, Marguerite de France, widow of Edward I Longshanks.

On 15 December 1307 the justiciar of Ireland was ordered to deliver to him the lands of his inheritance in Ireland, although he was still under age. By inheritance and through his marriage he became a great magnate in both Wales and in Ireland. At the coronation of King Edward II he was one of the four bearers of the royal robes. He was summoned for military service against the Scots in 1308 and in 1309. On 28 October 1308 Roger and his wife went to Ireland and took possession of Meath, his wife's inheritance.

In 1316 he was defeated in Ireland by Edward Bruc

1031 Hi, MY name is Eva Lapree Horn. I was born September 5th ,1920 in Medical Springs, Oregon. I am the 3rd daughter born to Joseph Horn and Katie May England. At the time of my birth my family was living on a 140 acre ranch, that my dad was helping farm.
My family moved to Cashe Valley, Logan, Utah when I was very small, My first years of school was there. I think I was in the 4th grade when we moved to Rupert Idaho which is where I grew up. I remember the years of growing up on the farm helping my dad herd sheep and when he cut the hay using our horses, Gub and June, to pull the swather. My mom, my sisters and I would put the hay in big round piles by hand so dad could rake it up. My dad took us to school on a horse pulled wagon. Going to school was a real hoot. We were always getting in trouble with the boys. My favorite sport was baseball and track and math was my favorite subject. I graduated in 1938 from Heyburn. I liked going to the Art exhibits that were held at the Heyburn school every spring. In fact that is where I met my future destiny....
This day that I am writing this is April 6, 1993. The remembrance of my life with Father and mother the two lovely man and women who brought me to this world was named Joseph Horn and Katie May England. My father was age of 28 and my mother at age 26, living on a ranch at Medical Springs Oregon,l the day of September 5th 1920 at 11:30 pm. I was the third child and my father and mother named me Eva Lapree. It is hard to remember my age, I would guess, 4 years old, my mind goes back to Cash Valley Utah on a farm at Logan, Utah. I remember a church Christmas party there was a big green tree decorated up pretty colored lights all lit up. A person in a red suit, white hair and a beard was by the tree he was giving out gifts and calling out names. He gave me a package and when I unwrapped it there was a pair of pretty blue necklaces. I thought how could he know my name. Rememberance of school, daddy as I remember took us 2 miles to school in a wagon pulled by horses, the school was called Young school. Now on the farm in Logan, Daddy had pure bred white faced panama sheep. He would always sheer them for wool to sell. My dad had us girls heard them on ditch banks on the farm. I remember my dad out plowing with two white horses named June and Gub. Daddy would hum a song as he was doing his farming watching the dirt roll over. Daddy cut his hay down using the only mower he had, June and Gub pulling it. Then when the hay dried, he raked it into ferlos, then us girls, Zylpha, Gladys, Delva and I and also mother, would put the hay into round piles to dry. Our mother was always out worling in the fields. She would go to the house and fix inner, us four girls took turns doing the dishes. I remember us arguing whose turn it was, that day to do dishes. Our mother had us girls take turns mixing bread in a big round pan with a live yeast mix of potatoe juice. She kept it in a qt jar, our Dad would take us to school on a sled with horses pulling it. on the way we would pick up other kids. some of them is my cousins, Benches also living in Burley. We had a herd of sheep in Logon, us girls would herd them around our farm, also cows, I tried to milk a cow one night and she had hobbles on, but still kicked over the bucket and spilled the milk. I cried over that so dad said for me not to milk again. O boy I was about 6 or 7 then. My mother, Dad and sisters always worked together on the farm, thinning beats topping them, and hauling them in a wagon pulled with the horses. We all picked potatoes together.

1033 History - In 1841, Mary's parents joined the Mormon Church, and she moved with them to Nauvoo. She recalled some of the early persecution there, and the death of Joseph Smith.
She remembered their making preparations to leave the city, selling their belongings for very little. And she remembers the start of their journey:
"I think I shall never forget that long lonely day; waiting on that vast undulating prarie that stretched as far as the eye could reach, covered with grass and flowers. It must have been a lovely scene that bright spring morning, but I hardly think it was properly appreciated by the little band who were so bravely leaving home, friends, country and kindred to take their toilsome march across the rocky mountains. The oxen were detached from the waggons and feeding lazily among the green grass, knowing nothing of the future that lay before them...My childish heart knew as little as they of the hardship that lay before us."
Mary Jane was 10 when they arrived in the barren Salt Lake Valley in the fall of 1847.
The first real home for the family was a crude cabin Joseph Mount built in the canyon, where he was also building a sawmill.
They eked out a sparse living, fighting off crickets and harsh weather, for two years. When news of the gold discovery in California reached Salt Lake, Joseph determined to seek his fortune.
He left his family in the care of his partner, agreeing to send the partner half of what he made in the gold fields. He did do reasonably well there, but this move cost his family much suffering both while he was gone and from the later consequences of the move.
"We had a sack of flour which we had kept very carefully and would not use it as long as we could get it other ways; for my mother had learned to look out for emergencies. She had smelled something unusual, and, as she was not accustomed to foul odors about the house, set to work to learn the cause. Finaly she traced it to the flour sack where she found a dead mouse. The smell had impregnated the flour and rendered it unfit for use.
"To those who have plenty, and never knew the wretchedness of hunger and privation, this may seem a little thing; but to us it meant bread which is the staff of life and we scarcely knew how to replace it."
In 1851 Joseph sent for his family to come to California, but they did not feel they should leave the valley. When Joseph heard this he became very angry, and thus began a little drama that changed the lives of the Mount family. Joseph demanded a divorce. Elizabeth, feeling abandoned and at a loss to know how to care for her family, obtained a divorce and soon after became the second wife of a Stillman Pond. By the time Joseph calmed down and came to make peace with the family, it was too late.

Joseph also married again, and for a time Mary Jane lived with him, but felt a great sense of aloneness, not quite fitting in with either family. Eventually her father moved back to California, a bitter man. Her mother didn't find happiness, either, leaving Stillman Pond a few years later, and marrying a third time, to Timothy Foote.
In 1856 Mary Jane married Myron Tanner, a young Mormon from San Bernardino whom she met on one of his trips to Salt Lake City. They were going back to California, but on the counsel of Brigham Young, decided to stay in Utah. They lived in Payson for a time, then moved to Provo, where they spent the rest of their lives.
Myron and Mary Jane were the parents of nine children, three of whom died in infancy.

Ten years after he married Mary Jane, Myron took a second wife, Ann Crosby.

"Of this I will say but little. It is a heart history which pen and ink can never trace. It was a great trial, but I believed it to be a true principle, and summoned all my fortitude to bear it bravely."
A cordial relationship existed between the two families for a time, but it eventually deteriorated into discord and bitterness because, said Mary Jane, of the interference of Ann's family. In later letters, however, she always defended the practice. And the insight she offers into the realities of polygamy is fascinating.
Throughout her life, Mary Jane suffered from poor health. In 1842, after the birth of one of her children she became very sick from "childbed fever." It was then, and during the lengthy convalescence which followed, that she decided to become a writer.
"God had given me a taste and a tallent for writing...and I determined then that if God gave me health I would not prize His gift so lightly, but would do all in my power to cultivate my 'tallent' and not 'lay it away in a napkin.'...As soon as my strength and time permitted I gathered and arranged my little poems and coppied them in a book."
Her "Fugitive Poems" volume was published in 1880. She also contributed numerous pieces to Church publications and women's journals of the time. She made no great mark in the literary world, but did become known as the "Utah County Poetess."
Her devotion to the Church never wavered. Myron served as bishop of the Provo Third Ward for a great many years; at the time she completed her autobiography, Mary Jane had served as president of the Relief Society for 15 years.
She died on Jan. 8, 1890, "ending a useful and honorable career," as the newspaper account read. "She left a large family and a wide circle of friends to mourn her departure."
And in her writings, particularly the fragments so choicely and skillfully presented in this book, she left a precious legacy, a fascinating view of Mormon life as it was a hundred years ago, seen through the eyes of a devout and caring woman.

1034 HISTORY OF EDWIN WHITING, Compiled by Jennie Bird Hill, daughter of Abby Ann Whiting, daughter of Edwin and Hannah Whiting, 1919

“About the year 1800, in the little town of Lee, Berkshire County, Massachusetts, near the border of New York, lived the family of Elisha and Sally Hulett Whiting. Elisha Whiting's father was a sea captain and lived in Connecticut. He died when Elisha was very young. His mother, not knowing what else to do, bound him to an old Quaker, who was very cruel to him, and after a few years, he ran away to Massachusetts and worked on a farm with a wheelwright. Here he was married to Sally Hulett. They were highly respected, honest, generous and firm in their convictions.

Elisha Whiting followed the trade of wagon and chair maker and did his work well. His wife was very gifted in making prose and poetry, a characteristic that has been bequeathed to many of the Whiting descendants. To Elisha and Sally Whiting, twelve children were born, eight sons and four daughters as follows: (1) Charles, (2) William, (3) Edwin, (4) Charles, (5) Katherine Louisa, (6) Harriet, (7) Sally Emeline, (8) Chauncey, (9) Almond, (10) Jane, (11) Sylvester, and (12) Lewis. Edwin Whiting was born September 9, 1809, the third child of this family.

When he was six years old, his parents moved to Nelson, Portage County, Ohio. At that time, it was the western frontier of the U.S.A. but probably the very thing his father wished to be to get a suitable timber for his trade, for the support of his large family.

Edwin Whiting's chance for education was very limited, but they were all taught the “3 R’s”,Readin', Ritin', and Rithmetic, and he wrote an legible hand, an extraordinary feat for his time. At an early age, he wrote credible verse. His early life in the forest, no doubt, accounts for his love of the out-of-doors, the beauties of nature, the trees, the flowers, the mountains and the desire to hunt. One Sunday morning, when but a small boy, he decided to go hunting. He knew this was contrary to his parent's teachings, so he tried to draw his gun through the cracks between the logs of his bedroom and go unmolested. His gun caught and was discharged, inflicting a serious wound in his left arm. This, he said, was a lesson to observe the Sabbath Day and to obey his parents.

He learned the chair making trade from his father and his workmanship was considered very good. In 1833, when Edwin was twenty-four years old, he married Elizabeth Partridge Tillotson, an Ohio girl of French descent. She was a highly educated school teacher, quite an accomplishment for those days.

In 1837, the Gospel was brought to the Whiting family. Edwin and his wife, his father and mother and some of his brothers and sisters joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They were baptized by Thomas Marsh in 1838. Here, as in the time of Christ and His Apostles, the humble, hard-working class of people were the ones to listen and accept the Gospel of truth. They were among the early members of the church and soon joined the saints in Kirtland, Ohio.

Testimony of Joseph Smith

By Edwin Whiting My children, I have guarded the prophet Joseph Smith while he slept; I have guarded him while he walked the earth. I have slept at his side. I have felt the power of God in his life. I have seen the mantel of the Holy Ghost hover over him. I have received the witness that I know that he is and he was a prophet of the living God, and I want you children, may family to honor him and to honor each succeeding prophet following him because your security in the kingdom of God and your security in the church depends upon your full allegiance in the prophets in the earth. This testimony I leave with you and I know that he was indeed a prophet of the living God.

It was here that their trials, hardships and persecutions began and it took true manhood, womanhood and faith in God to endure. They were forced to leave their new comfortable home, complete with furniture, orchards and land in Kirtland, Ohio, and took only their clothing and a few valued relics and went to Far West, Missouri. By this time, Edwin and Elizabeth had four children: William, Helen Amelia, Sarah Elizabeth and Emily Jane. They were only in Far West a short time and had just built a new home, when the mob, several thousand strong, ordered them out. Every house in the village was burned except father Elisha Whiting’s, which was spared because he was so sick they could not move him. We remember of hearing aunt Elizabeth tell how she sat on the pile of bedding far into the night with little daughter Jane in her arms. Little Jane died soon after from exposure and lack of proper food. Sarah clapped her hands at the big bonfire the mob had made with their fences and the select wood from her father's chair shop. They were compelled to flee again so they joined the saints at Lima in father Morley's branch, where Edwin Whiting acted as counselor to brother Morley.

For Several years, the saints were happily building up the city of Nauvoo, and their temple. Here they worshiped God without so much persecution as they had experienced at Lima. Edwin was appointed Colonel in the Nauvoo Legion and was an active worker at all times for the up-building of His Church. Through the advice of those in authority, and for a righteous purpose, he entered the law of plural marriage. On January 3rd 1845, he married Almira Meacham. The following year, January 27, 1846, they were sealed in the Nauvoo Temple, and also to Mary Elizabeth Cox, his third wife.

That same year, he was called on a mission to Pennsylvania and was there at the time of the martyrdom of the Prophet Joseph and Hyrum Smith. He soon returned home and took up arms with his brethren to protect his property and the lives of his family.

During the battle of the Crooked River, his brother Charles was killed. Still a greater test awaited him, his brothers, Almond, Sylvester, Chauncey and Lewis and his sister, Louisa did not feel that Brigham Young should be the leader of the Church so they followed Alpheus Cutler and called themselves "Cutlerites" and moved up into Clitherall, Minnesota. To this day they hold tenaciously to the teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith. They still correspond with the children of Edwin Whiting, and have given us, for temple work, an extensive genealogy of the Whiting family.

Edwin Whiting, his families, his father and mother stayed with the saints, who were compelled to move west as far as Mt. Pisgah, (now known as Talmadge) Iowa. There they stayed to prepare for the journey across the plains. The dreaded disease, cholera, took the father and mother of Edwin, his little brother and little daughter, Emily Jane. Their names are on the monument lately erected at that place in memory of those who died there. So many of his family were sick at one time, that there was no one well enough to get the sick ones a drink, but even in those trying times, they still had faith and rejoiced in the Gospel, for the Lord was with them.

Emeline, a sister of Edwin, married Fredrick Walter Cox and the two families were as one big family for years. They established a chair factory and hauled the chairs to Quincy, Illinois where they were sold. From this and their crops, they prepared to come west. Aunt Mary taught school two terms and helped the family some. While at Mt.Pisgah, three children were born. Albert Milton was born to Mary. Oscar Newell was born to Elizabeth, and Catherine Emeline was born to Almira.

In April, 1849, Edwin and Emeline, the only children of Elisha and Sally Whiting who stayed true to the Church, started westward in brother Morley's company. Volumes have been written of the westward journey of the saints, and as Congressman Leatherstood has said, “It is the greatest emigration trail that was ever blazed, and our pioneers will, some day stand out in history as the greatest pioneers of the world.” They fought Indians, had their cattle stampeded, suffered for lack of proper food, and even though tired from that long and tedious trek, still they went on. After reaching the Black Hills, a heavy snowstorm came and for three days they were shut in. Many of their cattle died and perhaps they would have died had not the teams and provisions sent by President Brigham Young come to their aid.

On October 28, 1849, they reached Salt Lake City, which looked like a haven of rest to that travel-worn company. Aunt Mary said, “I have never beheld a sight so good and so beautiful as Salt Lake City. We were so thankful our journey was at an end.” But their rest was of short duration, for in a few days Edwin Whiting, the Morley's and the Cox's were called to settle the San Pitch River, now known as Manti. Again they journeyed on. It took three weeks to go from Salt Lake City, because they had to build their own roads. Provo was then a village of about six homes.

As they passed Hobble Creek, afterwards known as Springville, Edwin Whiting remarked, “This is a fertile spot. I would like to stop here.” They arrived in Sanpete county on December 1, 1849, with almost nothing to eat, no food for their cattle, no shelter to keep them warm, and cold weather upon them. They made “dugouts” on the south side of the hill where the Manti Temple now stands. It was a severe winter, with snow so deep the cattle could scarcely get grass and most of them died. Food had to be divided with the Indians to keep peace. President Young had promised them provisions and help, but none came, so Edwin and Orville Cox put on snow shoes and with a little parched corn in their pockets for food, placed their bedding on a sleigh and started toward Salt Lake City for help. When they reached Nephi Canyon, they met their help, brother Dace Henry, his wife, her brother, Mr. Doge and an Indian, snow bound. Their cattle had died and their wagons were all but covered with snow. The young wife was very sick, so Edwin gave them the sleigh to pull her to Manti. They put their quilts on their backs and walked on to Salt Lake City and reported conditions to President Young. Aid was immediately sent, but some of that company went back to Salt Lake City.

Edwin's family now numbered fourteen. They lived in a large room in the wall of the hill with their chair factory in one end. The men and boys hauled wood from the hills on the hand sleighs.

The following spring (1850), there were three girls born. Harriet Lucinda was born to Mary Elizabeth in April, Louisa Melitia was born to Elizabeth in May, and Cornelia Dolly was born to Almira in June.

For several seasons, very little was raised. It became necessary to build a fort to protect themselves from the Indians, for they felt that the white man had stolen their land. The gates of the fort were locked while the men went to the fields with their guns. From this developed the Walker War. Edwin was appointed Captain of the Militia. Twice the Indians drove his cattle off and stole whatever they could.

Edwin often told us of one big old ox that he owned. The ox would rebel whenever an Indian tried to drive him. He would turn on his captors and break their defense and come home. He hated Indians and would always lower his head and challenge them if they came near. Edwin tried planting fruit trees, shrubs and flowers, but they could not survive the very cold winters. Their crops were poor, but they managed to exist and were a happy family in spite of their hardships.

In 1854, he was called to Ohio on a mission and was gone for two years. While he was away, the grasshoppers came and took everything they raised. They faced starvation, but miraculously, where the crops had been, a patch of pig weeds grew and they lived on them until the corn ripened in Utah County. A strange thing it was, for the Indians said those pig weeds had never grown there before, nor have they grown since. Walter Cox divided with his brother's (brother-in-law) family while Edwin was away.

Edwin, upon his return, brought many kinds of fruit trees, (some from his father's farm that he helped to plant when a boy) shrubs and flowers, and again tried to grow them, but the climate was too cold.

On the 8th of October, 1856, Edwin married Hannah Haines Brown. Abby Ann Whiting was born to this couple at Manti in 1858 and Lorenzo Snow Whiting was born at Manti in 1860.

On the 14th day of April, 1857, he married Mary Ann Washburn. Two children were born to the family while they resided at Manti. Daniel Abram was born in May, 1858 and Monroe Finch Whiting was born in November, 1862.

While he lived at Manti, Edwin was among the foremost men in religious and civic affairs of the community. He was councilor to the Stake President. He was mayor of the city from 1857 to 1861. He was a member of the legislature for two terms, and as stated before, he was Captain of the Militia in the Walker War.

After finding the climate of Manti unfavorable for raising fruit, his special work, he was advised by President Young to try out his nursery at Springville. He moved to Springville in 1861 and was able to plant and grow all kinds and varieties of fruit trees, vegetables and flowers. People used to come from neighboring communities to see his flowers.

He built a home on the lot where the Springville Second Ward Church now stands. That old two story adobe home will stand in the memory of the members of the Whiting Family as a place of many happy evenings and of fun and amusement. Aunt Mary also taught school there.

He transplanted, in different towns, many evergreens from the mountains. Those around the old Court House in Provo, those at the Springville City park, and one large evergreen that stands southwest of the Manti Temple which can be seen for miles around. He once said “I brought that in my dinner bucket and I think it was the first evergreen transplanted in Utah.”

His life was typical of this great tree. A poem written by Emmay Whiting, wife of Daniel Whiting, describes his life and this tree as being similar. Edwin had one of the largest families in Utah. Many of those stand at the head of Stake and Ward organizations in our Church. Among his descendants, we found seven bishops.

In his later life, he did temple work for his dead relatives in the Salt Lake Temple, St. George Temple, and in the Logan Temple. He lived the principles of his religion. He was honest, charitable, and never accumulated great riches. He was thrifty and loved his wives and children and gave them the comforts of life. He died at Mapleton, Utah on the 9th of December, 1890 at the age of eighty-one years. He was firm in his belief and testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel. His descendants are numerous and are found in Idaho, Arizona, Mexico, California, New York, and in Utah. [1919]”

Edwin arrived in Springville, Utah County, Utah in 1861 along with his wife, Hannah and her children. Other family members remained behind in Manti until homes were constructed. During the first winter, Edwin, Hannah, and their children, lived in a lean-to that was made by placing boards against the 12-foot high wall of the Springville Fort. Edwin later secured property near Main Street and 400 South in Springville and built two identical homes out of adobe with a fifty foot space in between. A third structure was eventually constructed between the two smaller homes, and the completed home became known as the "Big House." Edwin was active in community life in Springville.

In 1861, Edwin Whiting's family were all living in Manti where he had been sent by Brigham Young to organize the San Pitch River. Finding the climate too cold for his occupation as nurseryman, he asked permission of Pres. Young to come north, which was permitted. He left all his wives and children in Manti except Hannah and her children and moved to Springville. Their home for the first winter was a lean-to by placing boards against the old 12 foot high fort wall. Edwin bought a strip of land extending from Main street extending to where the High School now stands. (The high school is no longer standing but it was east of the present Art Museum).

On this land he soon made homes for the rest of his family. Two homes exactly alike were built of adobe leaving a space of fifty feet between, later filling in this space and joining onto the previously built and we designated it as the Big House, a two story structure with spacious windows and doors, large airy rooms, broad halls and broad steps of native sandstone transported from the quarries of San Pete by ox team by the older sons. Choice fruits and berries grew in his orchard near the house. These budded from eastern varieties. A school was taught in one of the rooms until a suitable house could be built. There all lived in love and harmony.

Heritage Tree: Red Juniper Tree planted on the Edwin Whiting Property:

Family tradition holds that Edwin was responsible for planting several trees throughout the city and Utah County. Many have become diseased or have been removed due to other construction, but one significant specimen still stands at this location, approximately 445 South Main Street. I t would likely have been near the front of The Big House. Edwin's biographers, including his daughters, say that he got many of his trees from the Utah Mountains east of Springville. This tree measures just under 13 feet in circumference and stands about 40 ft. high. It is much bigger than any other Juniper in the area and could have been purchased elsewhere. Other records we have tell us of Edwin purchasing trees in Salt Lake. We are not quite sure where the name “Juniper Red” comes from. Juniper Red is not a Utah Native Tree. There is a plaque at the base of the tree placed by the Daughters of the Pioneers. Several photos over the years show the development of the tree and the changes in the buildings surrounding it.

The "Big House" was later demolished and in 1913, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints built a chapel on the property. Extensive remodeling on the historic church building was completed in 1998 and the building was rededicated by Gordon B. Hinckley, then president of the Church. The building was extensively damaged by vandals in 2006, who set fire to the structure. It was demolished as a result. The juniper tree still stands (2011).

Edwin Whiting Beekeeper

There are two articles about Edwin Whiting and his association with a group known as the “Utah County Bee Keepers Association”. The first one lists Edwin first as one of two Vice Presidents of the group. The lengthy article lists some of their activities and problems with bee keeping. It can be found at : The article is in the Deseret News 3 Aug 1870, pg 12 under “Correspondence”.

The second of an even longer article titled, “Report of Committee on Bees”, at the very bottom, refers to “One Swarm kept by Whiting of Springville, Utah Co., paid a profit of $125.00, estimating young bees $25.00 per stand and honey 50c per pound,” Source: Deseret News Online 27 Dec 1870, pg.3.

Wayne Johnson, a grandson of Edwin has sketched several items about the house and yard of Edwin, one of them is labeled "The Apiary", which is a place where bees and their hives are kept. This image can be seen in this site at Historic Places, Driving Tour of Springville.


Edwin Whiting Manti Grows Cabbage in Manti, September 15, 1852:

Editor News: I have often heard it stated, that the valley of San Pete would nor produce melons. This story has probably originated from the fact that the brethren have heretofore not succeeded in bring melons into maturity. This has been laid to the door of Jack Frost, but this is not the sole cause, for it is well known that while there from one to five hundred Indians in our midst during the greater part of the summer, and while they are allowed to travel over our fields, gardens, & unmolested and unrestrained, we can do but little in the way of raising melons.

This season, many of the brethren have their city lots fenced, and are living on them; those that are thus situated, are blessed with fine melons, squashes, pumpkins, tomatoes, & articles that have not been raised with any degree of successes, previous to this year. I had a squash from the garden of bro. Holden a few days since, that was equally good as any I ever saw in Great Salt Lake Valley.

Bro. Edwin Whiting showed me a number of heads of cabbage a few days since, that equal any that ever grew in Buncombe, N.C. He raised his cabbage from the seed last season, (‘51) cut the heads from the stalks and buried the stocks in the fall so as to protect them from the winter frosts. In the spring he took them up and set them in rows, from 20 inches to two feet apart; after they had started the many shoots that usually come out on an old stock, he selected the healthiest and most thrifty bud or shaft, and broke the others off. The buds so left, have sprung into large, hard, white heads of cabbage; in fact, this cabbage is better headed than any I have ever seen in the valleys. Bro. Whiting has tried this experiment two seasons, with good success, and recommends this process of raising cabbage very highly.

We have had a high frost on the bottoms, but none to injure any sort of vegetation in this city as yet. We had a very severe hail storm in this place, this morning; but as the harvesting is almost over, it could have done but very little damage. After the hail, it rained a fine shower, which will hasten the growth of turnips, &c.

I am yours, AND. L. SILVER

Death of Edwin Whiting

The death of Edwin Whiting, son of Elisha and Sally [Hulet] Whiting occurred at Springville, Utah County December 8, 1890. Deceased was born September 9 1809 at Lee, Berkshire County, Massachusetts. When six years of age his father moved with his family to Portage County, Ohio. Brother Whiting was married to Elizabeth Partridge Tilotson in 1833, moved westward in 1837 and was baptized by Thomas M. Marsh August 1838.

He was one of the brethren who were compelled to lay down their arms at the order of the mob. He listened to the infamous speech of General Clark and was forcibly expelled with the saints from the State. Locating in Lima, in the Morley settlement, he there became counselor to father Morley. Deceased was on a mission in Pennsylvania at he time of the Prophet Joseph's martyrdom and was recalled that year.

After the burning of his house by a ruthless mob he was driven to Nauvoo. In the year 1846 he journeyed with the saints for the great west, staying at Mount Pisgah. He was President of that branch for one year. In 1849 with a family fourteen in number he went to the valley of the Great Salt Lake, before reaching which he enrolled his name with a company (of which father Morley was president) to go to Sanpete, there to establish the settlement of Manti, where he remained twelve years, and became counselor to the president, also mayor of the city and a member of the Legislative Assembly of Utah.

He was likewise captain of militia during the Indian troubles. All these positions he filled with much honor. He went on a mission to Ohio in 1855-6 and moved to Springville, Utah County in 1861. The deceased was well known as a successful fruit grower and brought the first of a number of varieties of fruit to Utah. He worked eight successive winters in the the Temple, for the dead.

Brother whiting was the father of twenty sons and sixteen daughters, twenty five of whom are living. He had 135 grandchildren and twenty-nine great grandchildren.

1035 History of Wilford Woodruff, Millennial Star 27 (1865), In tracing the history of my fathers, I find it difficult to obtain a satisfactory account of the Woodruff family for more than three generations. My great grandfather, Josiah Woodruff, lived nearly one hundred years, and possessed an iron constitution, and performed a great amount of manual labor nearly up to the time of his death. His wife's name was Sarah; she bore to him nine children, as follows:--Josiah, Appleton, Eldad, Elisha, Joseph, Rhoda, Phebe, and [two names not given.] My grandfather, Eldad Woodruff, was the third son of Josiah. He was born in Farmington, Hartford County, Connecticut, in 1751; he also possessed a strong constitution. It was said that he performed the most labor for several years of any man in Hartford County, and from overexertion in hewing timber, he was attacked with rheumatism in his right hip, which caused severe lameness for several years before his death. He married Dinah Woodford, by whom he had seven children--viz., Eldad, Elizabeth, Samuel, Aphek, Titus, Helen and Ozem. Eldad married Lewey Woodford; Elizabeth, Amasa Frisby; Samuel, Miss Case; Aphek, Beulah Thompson and Azubah Hart; Titus, Louisa Allen; Helen, Amos Wheeler; and Ozem, Acksah Merrill and Hannah Hart; all of whom had large families. My grandfather died in Farmington, with the spotted fever, in 1806, aged 55 years. My grandmother, Dinah, died in 1824, in the same place, with a cancer in the left breast; her sufferings were very great. My father, Aphek Woodruff, was born in Farmington, November 11, 1778; he married Beulah Thompson, who was born in 1782, November 29, 1801. She bore three sons--namely, Azmon, born November 29, 1802; Ozen Thompson, born December 22, 1804; myself born March 1, 1807. My mother died with the spotted fever, June 11, 1808, aged 26 years, leaving me fifteen months old. My father's second wife, Azubah Hart, was born July 31, 1792; they were married November 9, 1810; they had six children--viz., Philo, born November 29, 1811, and died by poison administered by a physician November 25, 1827; Asahel Hart, born April 11, 1814, and died in Terrahaute [Terrehaute], October 18, 1838; Franklin, born March 12, 1816, and died June 1; Newton, born June 19, 1818, drowned September 1820; Julius, born April 22, 1820, and died in infancy; Eunice, born June 19, 1821. I married her to Dwight Webster, in Farmington, Connecticut, August 4, 1841. My father was a strong-constitutioned man, and has done a great amount of labor. At eighteen years of age he commenced attending a flouring sawmill, and continued about 50 years; most of this time he labored eighteen hours a day. He never made any profession of religion until I baptized him, with all his household, into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, on the first day of July 1838. He was a man of great charity, honesty, integrity and truth, and made himself poor by giving to the poor, and accommodating his fellowmen by loaning money and becoming surety for his neighbors, and always saying yes to every man who asked a favor at his hand.

1037 Holger Reedtz, Holger Christian Reedtz, 14.2.1800-6.2.1857, diplomat, minister. Født i Odense (Knuds), død på Palsgård, begravet i Assens, Bjerge hrd. R. blev student fra Odense katedralskole 1818 og cand. jur. 1823. På en afhandling om de af Valdemarerne erobrede Østersøkyster vandt han 1821 universitetets guldmedalje og fortsatte sine historiske studier med udgivelse af Repertoire historique et chronologique des traités conclus par la couronne de Dannemare depuis Canut-le Grand jusqu'å 1800, 1826. Hans undersøgelse i München 1827 af det af Christian II bortførte arkiv førte til nogle afskrifter, men - uvist af hvilken grund - ikke til nogen udgivelse. R. vendte sig derefter fra historisk forskning og ansattes 1828 som volontør i udenrigsministeriet, blev sekretær 1831 og tog sin afsked 1842 da han følte sig krænket ved Christian VIIIs indgriben i en sag han behandlede. Han trak sig tilbage til Palsgård som han var blevet medejer af ved faderens død, eneejer fra 1845, og beskæftigede sig med astronomiske studier fra et observatorium han lod opføre. 1847 valgtes han til Viborg stænderforsamling, men deltog ikke i dens samling 1848 da han 8.4; genindtrådte i statstjenesten som depechesekretær i udenrigsministeriet. Under treårskrigen anvendtes han især til ekstraordinære sendelser. Han ledsagede tidligere gesandt ved den tyske forbundsdag Fr.v. Pechlin til drøftelser i London om våbenstilstand i juni, udenrigsminister F. M. Knuth til Malmø juli-aug. hvor våbenstilstand aftaltes og undertegnede i Berlin erklæringen af 27.9. der gav Preussen og derigennem slesvigholstenerne adgang til at udpege fællesregeringen som skulle styre hertugdømmerne under våbenstilstanden. Denne erklæring som de nationalliberale ministre D. G. Monrad, Orla Lehmann og L. N. Hvidt stemte imod i statsrådet, hindrede et tillidsforhold mellem R. og de nationalliberale.

Kampene 1849 afsluttedes med R.s undertegnelse i Berlin 8.7. af våbenstilstanden og præliminærfreden med Preussen. Han overskred her sin kompetence idet han gav større indrømmelser end hans instruks tillod. Hans bevæggrunde var tilskyndelser fra russisk og engelsk side og egen vurdering af de storpolitiske forhold under de fremtrængende reaktionære strømninger. Hans handlemåde vakte megen misfornøjelse i Kbh., men regeringen accepterede de trufne aftaler og accepterede også at R. på Pechlins udtrykkelige forlangende fulgte ham som anden befuldmægtigede til de afsluttende fredsforhandlinger i Berlin juni-juli 1850. Derefter udnævntes R. 14.7. til direktør i udenrigsministeriet og overtog 6.8. udenrigsministerposten som konseilspræsident A. W. Moltke havde beklædt siden F. M. Knuths afgang nov. 1848. R. havde adskillige forudsætninger for at fylde posten. Han var en øvet og kyndig diplomat, men savnede smidighed og talefærdighed hvad der gjorde det vanskeligt for ham at hævde sig over for rigsdagen. Han stod Carl Moltke nær og var afgjort helstatsmand. Det lykkedes ham at afspore det såkaldte notabelprojekt, udarbejdet af nationalliberale ministre. Det gik ud på at en gruppe af monarkiets ansete mænd (notabler) skulle drøfte Slesvig-Holstens forhold ud fra et ejderpolitisk synspunkt. Holsten skulle adskilles fra Slesvig og kun have konge, diplomati og hær fælles med monarkiet. Dog gjordes der helstatsmændene den indrømmelse at Slesvig ikke skulle indlemmes i Danmark. R. erklærede at projektet var uigennemførligt og at han ikke kunne arbejde for det. Efter en rundrejse til Warszawa hvor han forhandlede med den russiske kejser, til Wien og Berlin forsommeren 1851 kunne han over for statsrådet berette om europæiske strømninger der stærkt gik imod ejderpolitik og nationalliberalisme og havde ladet ham forstå at det ville være gavnligt at regeringen fik en ændret sammensætning. Under disse forhold meddelte han i statsrådsmøde 27.6.1851 at han ikke længere kunne fortsætte som udenrigsminister. Han fremkaldte dermed regeringens demission, men indtrådte 14.7. påny som udenrigsminister i A. W. Moltkes 3. regering. Af nationalliberale var nu kun J. N. Madvig i regeringen. R. kunne imidlertid ikke udnytte sin sejr. De tyske magters krav voksede og han veg tilbage for en kamp med rigsdagen. Kun Carl Moltke støttede ham og 18.10.1851 tog han sin afsked, afløst af C. A. Bluhme. 1849-51 var R. medlem af landstinget for 10. kreds og sad 1854-56 i rigsrådet, men spillede ikke mere nogen politisk rolle. - Medlem af Danske selskab 1828. - Kammerjunker 1824.

1040 Hugh Day's ancestral line goes back generations to Robert Day who was born in Ipswitch, Suffrolk, England in 1606 and came to Cambridge, Massachusetts in about 1634 and died in Hartford Connecticut in 1648. He and his wife Mary had a son named Thomas Day who was born in Cambridge in 1634 and died in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1711. Next was John Joseph Day (1676 -1752). Then came three Williams, William Day (1714-1777), William Day (1742-1815), and William Day Jr. (1773-1815). The latter moved to Vermont and from there to Leeds, Ontario, Canada.

Hugh Day was born in about 1810 in a place called Bastard in Leeds, Ontario, Canada. He married Rhoda Day Nichols there in 1830 and there they had five children. Three, Almeda, Lydia, and William were born before their parents joined the Church in 1835. John was born and died the same day in Jefferson County, Illinois in 1837. and (Rhoda) died at an early age after they moved to Illinois. In 1844 in Nauvoo Rhoda died while giving birth to Rhoda Ann who also died.

Hugh married Susannah Judd in Florence Nebraska in 1846 and they had two children while living in Pottawatamie, Iowa. Hugh took his family to Utah in the William Snow and Joseph Young Company of 1850. The group included Hugh and Susannah, their two children, Almeda age 18 and her husband (William McLellan), Lydia Maria age 17, and William Sheldon age 14. The next year Lydia married Benjamin T Mitchell. During the next 20 years they had 11 children, but only 6 lived beyond childhood. Lydia and Benjamin Mitchell's 4th child, Alonzo Abraham, married Marion Ross Young, daughter of Phineas Young and Eleanor James. And that is how the Day, Mitchell, and Young families were linked together. Hugh Day, Phineas Young, and Benjamin Mitchell were prominent men in Salt Lake City.Lydia Maria Day was the sixth wife of Benjamin T Mitchell. She was was born in Leeds, Ontario, Canada. Her parents were Hugh Day and Rhoda Ann Nichols. She had an older sister named Amanda.

Her fathers ancestry in America goes back six generations. Robert Day and his wife Mary were both born in Ipswich, Suffolk England in1604. In 1629 at age 25 they were married in Kilburn, Yorkshire, England. They soon emigrated to the United States and were living in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1634. For a while they also lived in Ipswich Massachusetts at the time of his death in 1648 he was living in Hartford , Conneaut.

William Day Jr was born in Rutland , Vermont in 1773. In 1796 at the age of 23 he married Elizabeth Johns of Leeds, Ontario Canada and they moved to a place called Bastard, Leeds Ontario, Canada. (That Place is now called Rideau Lakes.) A child, Elizabeth, was born in 1897, Loldica and Joel were born in 1801, Loura was born in 1803, Hugh was born in 1909, and Sarah Ann was born in 1811. William Day Jr died in 1815. Elizabeth lived until 1830.

Hugh Day was only 6 years old when his father died. In the year his mother died he was age 21 and that was when he married Rhoda Ann Nichols. Her parents had also moved from Rutland Vermont. Her ancestors were from England and Wails but had been in the United states for six or seven generations.

Hugh and Rhoda had six children Amanda was born in 1831, Lydia was born in 1833, and William born in 1835 were born in Leeds.

That was when the Church came into their lives. Parley P Pratt was serving a mission in Ontario, Canada and several people significant in church history such as John Taylor, Wilford Woodruf, and the Fielding Family came into the church. Hugh was baptized on 29 December 1835. Rhoda was baptized 30 December 1836. After they joined the Church the headed for Nauvoo. John was born in LeRay, Jefferson Illinois in 1837.

Day, Hugh (I87120)
1041 Hugh Hilton, was born in Bolton, Lancashire, England on July 10, 1821. He came from a family which is said to be `the oldest family entitled to bear arms in Great Britain" (Reference: Encyclopedia Americana, V 16, p. 168). Hugh Hilton's grandfather was William Hilton of Bolton, born in 1765. He was a weaver and was married to Martha Taylor. Hugh's father was also named William, born 1796. His wife was Sarah. They had nine children; Hugh was the third.

Hugh was born in Bolton on July 10, 1821. His father William was a brewer. These were very hard times in Bolton and the early childhood of Hugh was quite pathetic. When he was a young child, Hugh’s mother spread sandwiches and laid them on a shelf with his cap on it; then his shoes were put in line. At 5:00 AM he would get up, slip into his clothes and shoes, grab his cap and lunch and eat as he hurried to work. If he was late, he was whipped or sent home to stay until 8:00 and his wages were docked. He worked from 5:00 until 8:00 then had half an hour off for breakfast, then he worked until 12:00 when there was an hour off. He worked again until 4:00 and then there was a half hour off for tea; after which he worked until 8:00 PM. On Saturdays he quit work a little earlier. He could read and write although he went to school only at night and to Sunday School. As an older boy, Grandpa bought eggs and sold them on the streets, but people would always pick out the biggest eggs and he had to discount the little ones that were left and so lost his profit. Later on he worked in the brewery; when he got asthma, it was thought to have been brought on by working over so much steam in the brewery.

Hugh was the first Hilton to respond to the call of the missionaries who brought the message of the restored Gospel to Bolton. He was 18 years of age at the time of his baptism, which was on February 27, 1840. On the same day a young lady named Jane Hewitt was also baptized.

Hugh and Jane were married five years later on February 8, 1845. They were very active in the Bolton branch and the records indicate that Hugh performed several priesthood ordinances between 1840 and 1851. During the Bolton years Hugh and Jane had four children. Two died in England one died at sea and the one surviving child, Charles Hewitt Hilton, went with his father to Utah. Hugh Hilton was a weaver, a schoolmaster and brewer. Despite his very limited education, his small account book is very easy to read, with excellent handwriting, and gives evidence of considerable self-education.

Hugh and Jane left Bolton for America, sailing to St. Louis, Missouri by way of New Orleans. They arrived in St. Louis on March 26, 1851 with their one surviving child Charles. Jane only enjoyed America for three months and passed away in St. Louis on June 18, 1851. Isabella Pilkington Frost was also a member of the Bolton branch having been baptized in 1849, and also came to St. Louis. Hugh married Isabella approximately ten months after the passing of his first wife Jane.

Hugh was just slightly under average height, 5 foot 10 inches, had very dark brown eyes, black curly hair, and had heavy eyebrows. He usually wore a full beard. Their brief stay in St. Louis was dominated by their intent preparations for their trip across the plains to join the Saints in "the valley," that is the Great Salt Lake Valley.

Hugh, Isabella and Charles arrived in Salt Lake City in November 1852. 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.

Because of the threat of Johnston's Army, Salt Lake City was vacated and Hugh's little family joined the exodus as they all moved to the community of Lehi, located near the shore of Utah Lake. They stayed there for four years. At this time Hugh made a beverage referred to as beer, and it is assumed that this was the non-alcoholic type. He sold this to the soldiers who were located at Camp Floyd about ten miles away. During the general conference of October 1861, the Hugh Hilton family was among several called on a mission to move to southern Utah and establish a new community near the Virgin River. The purpose of this mission was to raise cotton because it appeared that the normal source of cotton from the southern states would be interrupted due to the Civil War.

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.

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.
