-- History of Knox County, p 840

[216] In the 1830 Census, there is one male noted as 20-30 years old, two female 20-30, and one female 40--50. The male is likely her son, Ronald Aaron Noble Phelps. Interestingly, her brother Riley Root is listed in the census as the next head of household immediately after Clarissa. There were neighbors.

In the 1840 Census for Knox County, p. 359, she is listed as living in Township 11 N, 1 E. Age 57. Her son Ronald is listed immediately above her in the census, now having apparently established is own household.

History of Knox County Founding of Log City

"The historic canal boat trip of the spring and summer of 1836 was made up of a series of vicissitudes and disasters seldom paralleled in the history of pioneer emigration. John C. Smith, of Oneida County, New York, one of the subscribers to Mr. Gale's enterprise, was the owner of a number of boats on the Erie canal. It occurred to him that such a boat could be utilized in making the trip by water to their far distant future home in Illinois. Accordingly he consulted with others of the subscribers, with the result that a company was formed to buy a canal boat on shares, fit it up for passenger service and embark in it for a trip of a thousand miles or more over an untried water-way, untried, at least, in so far as that kind of a venture was concerned. A strong team was bought which could be used on the tow-path, and all preparations being completed they loaded their goods, stowed them away in the men's cabin and embarked. The company numbered thirty-seven, and was made up of men, women and children, ranging in age from a babe of three weeks to men and women of forty or fifty years. Mr. Smith was the captain of the boat and backer of the party; his wife at first did the cooking and the housekeeping, but these duties proving to be too heavy in so large a family, the cooking was afterward shared with two others, Mrs. Phelps and Mrs. Mills."

The persons making up the party were Captain Smith and wife; Miss Catherine Ann Watson, a niece of Mrs. Smith, and two little sons of Dr. Grant, a Nestorian missionary, who came under their care; Mr. and Mrs. Mills, two sons and a daughter; Miss Hannah Adams, a sister of Mrs. Mills; a girl named Mariah Fox, and a negro boy named Harry, who was under the charge of Mr. Mills; Mr. Lyman, his wife, two sons and two daughters; Mr. Orrin Kendall, his wife and two little sons; John Kendall; N. H. Losey, his wife and one child; Henry Hitchcock, a brother of Mrs. Losey 's; John Bryan and a negro who steered the boat. This negro expected to stay with the colony, but when he heard that the law of the state required some one to be responsible for his behavior he went back to New York."

-- History of Knox College 1837-1912 By Martha Farnham Webster. Galesburg, Ill, Wagoner Printing Company 1912 p. 32

[10941] Seraphina came to Knox County "with her mother [Clarissa Root] in 1836, her father having died six years before. They settled in what is now Galesburg, where the mother died in 1856."

-- History of Knox County, p. 840

Mr. Avery's marriage was celebrated Jan. 24, 1839, in Knox County, when he was united in holy matrimonial bonds with Miss Seraphina Princess Mary Phelps, a native of Massachusetts. She was the daughter of Col. Aaron N. and Clarissa (Root) Phelps, natives of Westfield, Mass. The Phelps family is one of the oldest in New England. Two brothers landed in America May 30, 1630, coming from England on the ship "Mary and John", commanded by Capt. Squibb. Aaron N. Phelps was a colonel in the War of 1812. Mrs. Avery was born Jan. 19, 1815 and was the eldest of a family of three children. The others, who are deceased, were Mrs. Sybelana Kilbourn and Royal A. N. Mrs. Avery came to this county in 1836 with her mother, her father having died six years before. They settled in what is now Galesburg, where the mother died in 1856.

Mr. and Mrs. Avery have had born to them seven children, as follows: Robert H., President of the Avery Corn-Planter Company of Peoria; John T. a farmer of Rio Township, this county; Mary, now Mrs. Rev. William R. Butcher of Wataga; Cyrus M. of Avery & Co. of Peoria; Phebe T. now living at home; and George, a farmer of Kansas. Fredrick Arthur died when about three years old. Robert H., the eldest son, married Miss Sarah P. Ayers; they are the parents of five children—Minnie E., Fredrick A., Sadie T., Cornelia, and Ellen K. Robert enlisted in Co. A, 77th IL Vol. Inf. in 1862, and served until the close of the war. He was taken prisoner and placed in Andersonville prison, where he remained for about eight months. He is the inventor of the Avery Corn-Planter, as well as other useful implements, and owns a controlling interest in the factory at Peoria. John T. took to wife Mrs. Flora Olmsted. Mary became the wife of Rev. William R. Butcher, and they have five children—Harry E., Mary Z., Etha, William, and Irene. Cyrus M. married Miss Minnie E. Bartholomew, and to them have been born three children—Elvira P., George L, and Grace O. George married Miss Ada Wood, and they are the parents of three children; the name of the only one living is Edith L. Cyrus M., who is now Secretary of the Avery Corn-Planter Company, graduated from Knox College, standing No. 1 in his class.

Mr. and Mrs. Avery are consistent, sympathetic Christians, and are connected by profession of faith with the First Church of Christ. Mr. Avery is a stanch Republican and Prohibitionist.

--1886 Portrait & Biographical Album of Knox Co., IL.

[3306] Aaron, his mother Clarissa Root Phelps, and his wife Sarah Adams Phelps were founders of the religious community established at Galesburg, Illinois.

In 1870, the census reports the value of his real estate as $15,000, and his personal effects as $500.

-- "History of Knox County"

The "Phelps Family in America" gives his name as "Roger." His grandson, Harold "Bart" Bartle Phelps, penciled this out and inserted "Ronald". Bart also corrected Ronald's birth year from 1812 to 1819. The book also gives his death at Wataga, Illinois, which Bart crossed out, but did not correct.

"Mr. Phelps was born in Westfield, Mass., September 8, 1819. He came, with his mother and two sisters, to Galesburg in 1836. They were among a group of 25 initial settlers." According to the Knox College history, "On June 2, the first colonists arrived in a wagon train and settled temporarily at Log City [near current Lake Storey], three miles northwest of the present site of Galesburg." They later founded the pioneer First Church of Christ.

"At the time of Mr. Phelps' arrival in Illinois, the amount of his worldly possessions at that time was enough to buy a box stove and a cow, valued at $30. The eldest daughter [Seraphina Princess Phelps] became Mrs. G. Avery, of Galesburg, and the youngest [Sybelana Phelps] the wife of B. Killbourn, of Wisconsin. The mother died at Galesburg, November 29, 1855. The father, Aaron Noble Phelps, had died previous to the family's moving west, at Westfield, Mass., in March 1830. He and his wife (Miss Clarissa Root) were married in 1814. Their only son, A. N. Phelps and Mrs. Sarah J. Adams were married March 29, 1847, and moved to their present home in 1856, which has since taken the premiums already mentioned." ("History of Knox County," p. 489)

Galesburg was home to the first anti-slavery society in state of Illinois founded in 1837, and was a stop on the underground railroad. Railroads play a key role in Galesburg -- the first railroad came to Galesburg in 1854.

The Family Farm in Knoxville, Illinois

"Section 8 also includes the premium farm owned by A. N. Phelps, Esq., and contains 200 acres without a foot of waste land. This farm was granted the first premium by the Illinois State Agricultural Society in 1868, and again in 1870. It had been awarded the first premium by the Knox County Agricultural Society previously for five successive years. [The "premium" was a silver-plated coffee service, described below.]

"As an indication that Sparta [Township -- later Knox County -- ] is a rich agricultural locality, capable of producing a great quantity as well as a great variety of crops and having in it many enterprising stock-raisers, besides being well watered by natural streams and springs, may be noted the fact that A. N. Phelps' two-hundred acre farm now owned by William Robson on Section 8, took three first prizes from the State Agricultural Society." (p. 836)

-- "History of Knox County"

"The canal around the rapids at Louisville had just been com­pleted, so they were able to get by where formerly travellers by steamboat had been transferred to another vessel. Between Louisville and the Mississippi lay the bottom lands of Egyptian Illinois with their dreary water-logged deadly towns, Shawnee­town, Ft. Massac, Golconda, lawless, disorderly, and inhospitable, hardly safe for such unworldly pilgrims to stop at. In caves along the river lurked bands of pirates who robbed and murdered de­fenseless travellers by water."

In the Mississippi there was constant delay. Even experienced river pilots are often fooled by this treacherous stream. The pro­peller refused to work. Parts of it continually dropped off into the river, and Noble Phelps acquired such experience in diving that when Captain Smith lost his watch over the side, he went in and recovered that also. At St. Louis they refused an offer of $1000 for their boat; it would have been wiser to have accepted. Slowly they worked north while the sick lay in their bunks and longed for land."

--"They Broke the Prairie: Being some Account of the Settlement of the Upper Mississippi Valley by Religious and Educational Pioneers, Told in Terms of One City, Galesburg, and of One College, Knox." Published 1937 C. Scribner's Sons. 451 pp

The 1850 Census shows Ron Phelps, age 31, residing with Sarah J. age 27, and Alfred A, age 1.
The "History of Knox County" was published in about 1870, so by this time Ronald was no longer farming, as the history indicates William Robson now owned that land. His name is given as "Ron," and his occupation is carpenter.

"Noble Phelps, as he grew to mature manhood, acquired large landed interests and developed them so skillfully, scientifically and successfully that his extensive farm, a few miles north of Galesburg, successively took the first prize as being the most highly cultivated and perfectly kept farm in Knox County, and in 1869 he had the satisfaction of owning the State Premium Farm of Illinois."

-- History of Knox College 1837-1912 By Martha Farnham Webster. Galesburg, Ill, Wagoner Printing Company 1912 p. 36-37

About The Phelps Family Silver Coffee Service

For many years, it graced the top of the buffet in my grandmother's formal dining room, usually wrapped in plastic to ward off tarnish. The center piece of the collection was the intricately engraved coffee server with the delicate spout. It had been won as a prize, I was told. As a child, I could only stare curiously and wonder about the shiny pot with the elephant-ear handles.

When first Grandpa and then Grandma Phelps passed on, the silver service was passed to me by my father. Up close, I finally read the engraving: "Table Sett Awarded by the Illinois State Agricultural Society to Mrs. A. N. Phelps 1871."

"A. N. Phelps?" I wondered. A quick check of my family history files turned up Roger Aaron Noble Phelps, of Wataga, Knox County, Illinois, my fourth great-grandfather, and his wife, Sarah Jerusha Adams of Painesville, Ohio. He was born in 1819 and they were married in 1847, so we can assume Sarah was at least 44 years old at the time she won this prize. A continuing puzzle is why a prize for the farm was apparently given at least in name to Thadeus' wife.

About the Pieces Themselves

The pieces appear to be stamped by two different manufacturers. The fact that the pieces were given as prizes and are silver plated suggests to me that the pieces may have been manufactured in quantity. The engraving is date 1871. The pieces are stamped on the bottom 1881, which refers to the style. The two stamps are:

"Quadruple Plate Wilcox Silver Plate Co. 1881 W" encircling crossed hammers

"New Haven Conn. Rogers Smith & Co. 1881"

The pieces have been appraised as being "Egyptian Revival" style.

According to the "History of Knox County (p. 489)," the farm "had been awarded the first premium by the Knox County Agricultural Society previously for five successive years."

The coffee service has seven pieces. Each is silver-plated; the base metal appears to be nickel and lead, as it is visible on a couple of pieces where the silver plate has worn away. Each piece is engraved with a vine or ivy motif. The tops of the handles and legs are decorated with what appears to be an Indian-head. The pieces are:

A large bowl 8" high and 10" across. This bowl is different from the others in that there is no vine design on the bowl, and the lid is engraved with clusters of leaves. The side of the bowl has what appears to be a holder for the lid.

A sugar bowl, 4 1/2" by 7"

The coffee pot, 15" tall, 11 1/2" across, with a spigot and kerosene warmer

A creamer, 4 1/2" by 7", with a hinged lid

A small bowl, 6" tall and 5" across, with a lid and handles

A matching small bowl 6" tall and 5" across

A medium bowl 7" high and 9" across, with a lid and handles

The Next Part of the Story

While these are the facts about the service, there is an interesting story behind them and how they survived through the generations of our family.

During World War II, many Californians feared they would be invaded by the Japanese. This fear was so strong within our family that they buried the table set at their cabin in the mountains outside Los Angeles. They remained hidden there for a number of years until after the war, around 1953. My parents were visiting my father's Aunt Helen. A single piece of the silver service was in the house. My mother admired the piece, and Aunt Helen told of the remaining pieces were buried in the Los Angeles forest. She told Annabeth that they ought to be hers now.

My mother passed on this story to her mother-in-law, Betty Phelps. The next year, as my parents prepared to visit Aunt Helen again, Betty asked Annabeth to please do her a favor and pick up a box that Aunt Helen wanted Betty to have. The box contained the silver service. Thus it remained in my grandparent's home for the next 40 years, until they both passed away and my father gave it to me.

[1477] William W. Phelps (1792-1872) was born at Hanover, New Jersey. Well educated, Phelps was an aspirant for the office of lieutenant governor of New York at the time he first learned of Mormonism through reading the Book of Mormon and talking with Sidney Rigdon. He visited Kirtland in 1831, was baptized, and became active in editorial work, establishing the "Evening and Morning Star". One of the Prophet's scribes, he assisted in preparing the first hymnal. Excommunicated in 1839, he returned to fellowship in 1841 and fulfilled a mission to the eastern states. He was implicated in the difficulty surrounding the destruction of the Nauvoo Expositor and was summoned to be tried for treason with Joseph Smith at Carthage. He accompanied the pioneers to Utah, where he became one of the first regents of the University of Deseret and a representative in the Utah legislature.

LDS Church Hymns by William W. Phelps include the following:
"Gently Raise the Sacred Strain"
"Now Let Us Rejoice"
"Hosanna Anthem" ("The Spirit of God")
"Praise to the Man"
"Vade Mecum"

From "The Phelps Family of America and Their English Ancestors," by Judge Oliver Seymour Phelps & Andrew T. Servin. (Eagle Publishing Company, Pittsfield, Mass., 1899).

JUDGE WILLIAM W. PHELPS, b. Dover, N. J., 7 Feb., 1792, removed with his father and family to Homer, N. Y., in 1800, m. Stella Waterman (now called Sally.) Mr. Phelps had a common school education. When quite young he removed to Ohio, soon returning to Homer, N. Y., where he started a paper called the "Western Courier. " From there he removed to Trurnansburgh, Tompkins Co. N. Y., and started the publication of a paper called the "Lake Light." From there he removed to Canandaigua, Ontario Co., N. Y., where he published a paper in the interest of the Anti-Masons, called the Ontario Phoenix. While he resided there the "Book of Mormon" came before the world. He was infatuated with their new religion, abandoned his paper and removing his family to Ohio, joined the Mormon church, and went to Missouri with the first Mormon missionaries. In the fall he returned for his family, purchased a printing press in Cincinnati, and removed with his family to Independence, Jackson Co., Missouri., then a new Mormon settlement.

In the fall of 1833 the Mormons were banished from Jackson Co., removing and settling in Colville Co., Mo. From here they were soon routed and removed to [Nauvoo,] Hancock Co., Ill., where they flourished for some time and built a Temple. In 1843 they were again banished.

Their next location was Salt Lake City, after which their history is generally known. Mr. Phelps removed and settled with them in Salt Lake City, where he was quite a prominent man, holding for many years the position of Judge. He died there 6 March, 1872 in his 78th year, leaving a widow, his first wife, Sally Waterman, and several children, His widow, Sally, says there are three children in Salt Lake City, the rest in the states; as to the number of wives he took and as to his children we have no full records.

The following is a copy of a letter to Mr. O. S. Phelps from Mrs. Phelps on the death of her husband. This shows how deeply the people are infatuated by their religion:

Salt Lake City, 18 Mar., 1872

Dear Friend: I received your kind letter and was glad to hear from you. I have to inform you that Mr. Phelps died the sixth day of March, and will have a part in the first resurrection of Saints and Apostles.

Through all his fightings and doing he has died at a good old age. Peace to his memory. His works will follow him. He is with Joseph and Hiram, the Blessed Martyrs, who died for the Testimony of Jesus, who believed in Revelation and Resurrection literally fulfilled. God is our Judge and our (here there are three or four words obliterated) are free Jesus and his Apostles were thought not fit to live on the Earth, and were slain for their religion, but we fear not what man can do unto us knowing that God is on our side. Should like you to come to Salt Lake City and see and hear for yourself. Should like to hear from you often. Accept my best wishes and may Peace attend you and yours, I remain your friend and well-wisher.

Sally Phelps

Early in life he was a candidate for the office of lieutenant-governor of New York. He was baptized into the Church in June, 1831, and undertook a mission to Jackson County, Missouri, where he located as a printer, and published a monthly paper, "The Evening and Morning Star," the first number of which appeared in June, 1832. While he was attending to his duties at the printing office, on July 20, a mob attacked his house, which contained the printing equipment, and pulled it partly down, seized the printing materials, destroyed many papers, and threw his family and furniture out of doors. Again on July 23, the mob renewed their depredations, and William W. Phelps and others offered themselves as a ransom for the Saints, being willing to be scourged, or to die, if that would appease the anger of the mob. The mob would not accept this sacrifice, however, but continued to utter threats of violence against the whole Church.

This persecution culminated in the Saints being driven from their homes in Jackson County, in November, 1833. Mob leaders warned Brother Phelps and others to flee for their lives, or they would be killed. Despite repeated appeals, which Elder Phelps helped to frame, to the governor of Missouri, and to the president of the United States, no protection or redress was ever given them.

When the exiled Saints in Clay County were organized into a stake, David Whitmer was chosen president, with William W. Phelps and John Whitmer as counselors. He took a prominent part in all matters pertaining to the welfare of the Saints in Missouri.

In the early part of 1835, he and his son Waterman were called to Kirtland, where they made their home with the family of the Prophet Joseph Smith and assisted a committee appointed to compile the "Book of Doctrine and Covenants." About this time, Elder Phelps subscribed $500 toward the erection of the Kirtland Temple. When the Church purchased the Egyptian mummies and papyrus from Michael H. Chandler in 1835, William W. Phelps served as one of the scribes in the translation by Joseph Smith of the "Book of Abraham."

[4091] In 1726 on March 16, Noah Phelps was born in Enfield, Hartford, Connecticut, son of Israel and Rachel (Clark) Phelps. Noah became a farmer and settled in Enfield, Connecticut.

At the age of 26 in 1752 on November 15 he married widow Hannah (Abbe) Geer. She was daughter of Thomas and Mary Abbe, and was b. Enfield 27 March, 1723. She was widow of Thomas Geer, who settled in East Windsor, and by whom she had two children, Thomas and Elihu Geer. She died in East Windsor, Connecticut, 12 Sept., 1818.

Noah and Hannah had a son Noah Jr. in 1753, a daughter Hannah in 1755, a son Daniel in 1759 who died later that year, a daughter Abigail in 1760,a son Daniel in 1763, and a son Obadiah in 1767. All children were born in Enfield, Hartford, Connecticut.

In 1773 Noah Phelps purchased land in East Windsor, Hartford, Connecticut and built a two room cabin on the property. Then in 1774 he moved his family to East Windsor. Later that year at a Town Meeting the first Monday of December Erastus Wolcott moderated the creation of the Committee of Safety in East Windsor.

In 1775 on March 22, East Windsor donated grain supplies for Relief of the Boston Sufferers by the Port Bill. Then on April 19, British Regulars marched from Boston to Lexington & killed some of the inhabitants. On Friday, April, 21, Captain Lemuel Stoughton, who then commanded the company of militia in the north part of the town of East Windsor, gathered his men and names were called for volunteers to march to the Relief of Boston. The next day on April, 22, Sergeant Noah Phelps among approximately 45 other men formed the North Society (Scantic Train Band), and marched from East Windsor in response to the Lexington Alarm.

April 24, Monday, the company reached Shrewsbury, Mass. where it was met with the news that the urgent necessity for its presence at Boston had passed. Ebenezer Watson, Jr. asked for volunteers to push on to the front. Eighteen men stepped forward and then and there chose Ebenezer Watson, Jr., to command them as Lieutenant and Noah Phelps as Sergeant. On Tuesday April 25, the company left Shrewsbury and reached headquarters in Roxbury on Wednesday where it was recorded that "Mr. Ebenezer Watson, Jr., appeared at Roxbury with a party of men under his command, did duty as a Lieutenant and was accepted as such by the general Officers". Lieutenant Watson's men were probably consolidated with Captain Hezekiah Parson's company who commanded that portion of the Enfield Lexington Alarm party which decided to push forward to the scene of action. June 6, Noah was recorded as having served 40 days as a Sergeant which would indicate his service ended about May 29.

In 1776, January - March, Noah enlisted in Colonel E. Wolcott's State Regiment, Captain J. Wells' Company at Boston and from July - August, he was enlisted in Captain E. Wolcott's Company.

In 1777 on January 1, Noah is recorded in the 2nd Connecticut Line, commanded by Charles Webb.

Sergeant Noah Phelps died in 1793 between May 16 and June 29. (There is some confusion between Noah and his son who both served in the Revolution. Noah Jr. died in 1778 in service.)

Noah Phelps is buried in Town Street Cemetery, East Windsor, Connecticut. Headstone Inscription:

[10580] Excerpted from "Autobiography of Anson Call":

I resolved to prepare myself for the conflict by investigating the two books. I accordingly furnished myself with the Book of Mormon. I then commenced the Book of Mormon and the Bible, compared the two and read my Bible from Genesis right through, praying and searching diligently for six months. When I finished the two books I became a firm believer in the Book of Mormon. I was then taught by the spirit to obey the principles of the gospel. My feelings were not known by any but my wife. I was proud and haughty and to obey the gospel was worse than death. I labored under those feelings for three months, becoming at times almost insane.

To be called a Mormon, I thought, was more than I could endure. I lamented that my lot was cast in this dispensation. My dreams and my meditations made me miserable. I at last covenanted before the Lord that if he would give me confidence to face the world in Mormonism, I would be baptized for the remission of my sins; before I arose from my knees the horrors of my mind were cleared; I feared no man, no set of men.

The next day I went to the Methodist meeting and declared unto them the truth of Mormonism. I told them I should obey it as soon as I could get to Kirtland. I accordingly went immediately there and was baptized by William Smith, Joseph's brother. My wife accompanied me. I was confirmed in the Kirtland Temple by David Whitmer. I immediately returned to Madison and was then prepared to tell my Methodist brethren many things they were strangers to. I improved every opportunity in their meetings, class meetings not excepted. There were my brothers, my mother and my schoolmates. I was much desirous that they should obey the gospel with me.


Anson Call, Lesson On Obedience

(Compiled and written by David Kenison, Orem, Utah, dkenison@xmission.com)

In the winter of 1838-1839, Anson Call and his family had been driven from their home in Far West, Missouri by the enemies of the Church. The Saints were preparing to move to Illinois, and Anson intended to go with them. However, he owned property at a place called "the Three Forks of Grand River," about 30 miles from Far West, and hoped to sell it in order to better provide for himself and his family during their upcoming journey.

Anson asked "Father Joseph Smith," father of the Prophet, and Brigham Young for counsel in the matter. They both advised him not to go to Grand River. But Anson decided to make the effort anyway - "I did not want to be burdensome to others." The following account from his journal tells the result of that effort:

=====

December 31, 1838, being anxious to obtain means to make a team, that I might be able to go with the Saints, I this morning mounted the only horse I had left, and started for the Three Forks of Grand River.

I arrived at my farm on new year's day, and learned that a man by the name of George Washington O'Niel had it in his possession.

I passed on two miles further to a family by the name of Day, who had come in from the Eastern States a few weeks before I was driven away. This family had taken no part with the mob. I found the lady at home, and received from her a history of my property. She informed me that O'Niel and Culp, Missouri mobbers, had said that if ever I came to the place they would kill me; and that one Henderson and others would help them.

When on my farm I had sold store goods to a number of the citizens, who were to pay me for them at Christmas. She said she had heard many of them say that if I came there, they would pay me just as "Mormons" should be paid.

Just at this time O'Niel and Culp came into the house. They demanded of me my reasons for being there. I told them that I was attending to my business. They said I had no business there, and if I got away from there I would be smart.

I replied that I was a white man, that it was time enough to be afraid when I saw danger, and that I should go when I pleased.

They told me that they would as soon kill me as a dog, and that there would be no more notice taken of my death than if a dog were killed. This I very well understood.

They then told me that they supposed I had come to get my property.

I informed them I had; to which they replied that there was no property for me.

After repeated threatenings I became convinced that it was in vain to think of obtaining anything, and started for my horse, which was hitched at the yard fence about five rods from the door.

They followed me. O'Niel picked up the end of a hoop pole which Mr. Day had left there, he having been hooping a barrel. With this pole he struck me a blow upon the head, which nearly brought me to the ground. I looked around for a club with which to defend myself, but there was none in sight. He continued striking me, and would doubtless have killed me, had it not been for a very thick woolen cap on my head.

Mrs. Day threw open the door and cried murder. I ran for the house to get something, if possible, to defend myself with; but before I reached the door, he struck me repeatedly, and gave me one blow over the eye, the scar of which I carry to this day.

As soon as I got into the house I clutched the fire shovel. At that moment Mrs. Day closed the door, so that I could not get out nor O'Niel in. He and Culp then passed the window, on which Mrs. Day supposed they had started for their guns, so I mounted my horse and rode for Far West as fast as I could.

My head and face soon commenced swelling. On my way home I washed myself, and resolved not to inform any one what had happened, as Father Smith and President Young had both told me not to go.

I reached home about eleven o'clock at night, and went to bed without making a light. In the morning I arose, and just as soon as I got out of bed, I fell upon the floor. My wife was alarmed and screamed. I told her what had happened; but told her to keep the matter from my family. Father Smith, however, soon heard of the occurrence, and came to see me. He hoped, he said, that the lesson would do me good, and that he was glad that I was not quite killed.

Had I obeyed the words "do not go, but stay at home," I should not have fallen into this trouble. May you who read this be wise, and in this particular, profit by my experience.

Anson Call, Missouri Persecutions, Settling in Utah

(Compiled and written by David Kenison, Orem, Utah, dkenison@xmission.com)

Anson Call and his family settled in Missouri in 1838, in spite of threats from the local residents that the Mormons would soon be driven out. It was not long before the Saints were forced to evacuate Far West, many of them moving to an area near Adam-ondi-Ahman. Anson and his family made their escape, leaving most of their possessions behind. The Missouri mobbers followed them, and continued to make threats and accusations. One "guard" confronted Anson in front of his family, called him a liar and put his gun to Anson's face and cocked it; the family screamed in horror, but the man uncocked the gun and rode off. The next night, six inches of snow fell - "My children nearly froze to death. One of them froze his fingers so that he lost a part of his nails." The cold did drive the mob away, but the persecution continued: "They killed our cattle, stole our horses, burned our houses, constantly killing and abusing all that they met with, insulted our women and murdered some of our children."

In December 1838, Anson made his way to Ray County to attempt to sell some of the corn he had left in the fields. He was taken captive by some of the mobbers, and ordered to disarm himself - when he proclaimed he carried no weapons, they forced him to empty his pockets and searched his clothing. It was December 24. Anson recorded:

"One of them by the name of James Ogle said that he had suffered by the Mormons and that I had to atone for it. He said they had felt my back and they would see it bare before morning and I would feel hickory upon it. He then commenced beating me with the flat hand in the face. He then said he would not abuse a man that was not armed. He threw his butcher knife at my feet and told me to pick it up and fight. I told him I did not wish to fight. He said I had to fight or die. He then picked up the knife and put it to my hand and told me to take it. I discovered all the rest of them had their knives in their hands. I refused to take it and leaned up against the side of the house. I then said in my heart, 'Oh Lord, preserve me or they will take my life.' I immediately became satisfied that I would be delivered from their hands. He thrust a knife within an inch of my breast and said he would rip my guts out. He then struck me repeatedly between my eyes with the back of his knife. He tantalized me in this manner for over two hours and struck me in the face with the back of the knife and his flat hand about 50 times. He said it was getting near night and we must make a finish of the business."

Anson was taken into the street and told he would be stripped and tied to a hickory tree, beaten, and left exposed to the cold night. As they were making preparations, Anson managed to get a bottle of liquor from a nearby grocer and then offered drinks to his captors; as they became quickly distracted by the bottle, Anson bolted for some brush nearby. Though he was pursued by the angry mob, he was able to escape and managed to get back to his family on Christmas Day. (From _Anson Call Autobiography, BYU-S)

Anson Call and his family survived the Missouri persecutions, and eventually moved west with the Saints. They played an important role in the colonizing of Utah.

On July 14, 1843, in Montrose, Iowa, Joseph Smith prophesied that Anson Call "would come to the Rocky mountains, and that he would assist in building cities from one end of the country to the other." The Calls settled first in Bountiful, north of Salt Lake, where he served as bishop from 1849-50. In 1851 he was appointed to serve as probate judge in Millard County (150 miles south of Salt Lake, in central Utah) and later represented that area in the state legislature. In 1854 he founded Call's Fort in Box Elder county, northwest Utah. He also settled in Parowan, Fillmore, and other areas in south-central Utah, and other parts of the state before returning to Bountiful to serve again as bishop from 1873-77. When the Davis Stake was organized there in June 1877, he became a counselor in the presidency. (See _Pioneers and Prominent Men of Utah_, p. 791)
Anson Call died on August 31, 1890.
