[1493] Robert II Stewart (1316-1390), King of Scots, was born by caesarian section after his mother's death following a riding accident. Robert came to the throne late in life with his predecessor having ruled for some 40 years. He was the nephew of David II and his entitlement of 'the Steward' comes from his ancestor who had acted as the High Steward of Scotland under David I. The name 'Steward" was later to be corrupted to Stewart and Stuart. His reign was only notable for the further closeness that the nations of Scotland and France reached.

[4862] 1897:

Thorold Post, May 12, 1897:

p. 1: Nearly full column obit for Orson J. Phelps; father was Samuel G. Phelps, he was born in Ludlowville, NY, Feb 23, 1820, family arrived in St. Catharines September 18, 1833. settled at Centreville, now Merritton. Worked on Welland Canal, built light houses and piers at Port Dalhousie, Port Colborne, Point Abino and Burlington. Worked on aqueduct at Welland. In 1851 was engaged in the lumber business with partner Richard Collier, mill was located where the Merritton railway station is now located. GWR later bought he mill and firm of Phelps and Collie dissolved, Phelps erected another mill at Lock 8 with brother Noah as partner. The two Phelpses built mills also at Copetown and at Simcoe County, and Phelps spent many years of business there, while Noah was at Lock 8. Phelpstown, where mill is located in Simcoe County, is named after Orson Phelps. Married Jane Meade in 1843, had large family seven now living, including O.J. in Merritton and Noah in Dayton, Oregon.

"The business of the firm of N. & O. J. Phelps prospering, they extended their operations, erecting mills at Copetown and Simcoe county, where they bought extensive timber tracts, and it was here that Mr, Phelps, the senior member of the firm spent many of the best years of his life, taking entire charge of the business there, while his brother Noah had similar control and direction of the Welland canal branch at lock 8. Phelpstown, where the mill in Simcoe county is located, is named after him. The people of that county will ever cherish his memory, because of the great service he rendered them. He was instrumental in securing among other things the North Western railway from Barrie to Penetanguishene, opening up this rich county to markets which before were beyond their reach. The people gratefully manifested their appreciation of his services by making him reeve for 14 years, then warden of the county, then their representative in the legislative assembly, where he performed eight years effective work. He then served the same county as sheriff for four years more, when failing health compelled him to seek the rest and quiet of private life."

The Daily Standard (St. Catharines), May 14, 1897,

p. 4: A long Orson J. Phelps obit.

[4116] Noah Phelps is a descendant of Obadiah Phelps and Lucy, his wife, who was daughter of Nathan Pelton, of East Windsor, Hartford, Co., Conn. He was born in the town of Turin, Lewis Co., N. Y., May 21, 1808, and after receiving a common school education, became by profession a surveyor, in which occupation he was employed in surveying government lands in the present counties of Dane, Green and Rock, in the then Territory of Michigan, in the years 1833 and 1834. Jan. 5, 1835, he married Adelia Antoinette Hoyt, and in 1838 settled permanently in this (Green) county.

EARLY SETTLEMENT

Washington (Wisconsin) was first settled in 1837. The honor of being the pioneer belongs to Josiah Pierce, who was originally from Massachusetts, but came direct from the State of New York to Madison, Wis., in the spring of 1837. The State capitol had just been commenced and Mr. Pierce had been engaged to board the workmen. Wisconsin had only been a Territory for a little over a year and Madison was a mere hamlet. In the following November, Mr. Pierce removed to a cabin which he had built during the summer on section 13, in what is now the town of Washington. Here he remained until the time of his death.

The next settler in the town was Noah Phelps, a native of the State of New York. Prior to the Black Hawk War he had helped to survey Green county, and after finishing his work he returned to his eastern home expecting to bring his family to Wisconsin in 1837. Mr. Phelps states that he was almost ready to start in May when specie payment was suspended by the banks. Government land could only be bought with coin and as all his money was in bank notes, he was obliged to wait. When specie payment was resumed in May he was still ready, and started, and in June 1838, he made the second settlement within the limits now comprising the town of Washington. He settled with his family on section 24, and remained for a few years, then moved to Monroe, and still lives near that city.

OTHER INFORMATION
The Sutherland House is well known to the traveling public. A portion of the building was erected at a very early day, and owned by Noah Phelps, who occupied it as a residence. Some additions were subsequently made to the building, and it was then converted into a water cure establishment. In due course of time the property came into the possession of Mr. Glessner, who enlarged the house and opened it as a hotel under the name of Glessner House. It was run by Mr. Glessner for some years, and then sold to Oscar Warfield, who changed its name to that of Warfield House. In the summer of 1883 it passed into the hands of it's present proprieter, Benjamin Sutherland, who changed its name to the Sutherland House.

[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.
