[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."

[3737] Charlemagne, Emperor Of The Holy Roman Empire, King of the Franks was king of the Franks from AD 768 to 814 and 'Emperor of the Romans' from 800 to 814. He became a key figure in the development of western Europe's medieval civilization. By his almost constant military campaigns, Charlemagne created a vast empire in the West which included much of the western part of the old Roman Empire as well as some new territory. He was the first Germanic ruler to assume the title of emperor, and the 'empire' he revived lasted in one form or another for a thousand years. Culturally and politically, he left his mark on the newly rising civilization of the West. Probably no ruler of the early Middle Ages better deserved the title of 'The Great.'

Charlemagne was the son of Pepin the Short, and the grandson of Charles Martel. From 768 to 771, Charlemagne shared Pepin's kingdom with his brother, Carloman. When Carloman died, Charlemagne became sole ruler. He took up with energy the work begun by his father and grandfather. His first step was to repress his hostile neighbors. Charlemagne gained wide acclaim for his outstanding military ability, persistence, and success. He waged more than 50 campaigns against neighboring Germanic peoples on all sides, and against the Avars, Slavs, Byzantines, and Moors.

Charlemagne's first great war was against the Lombards, a Germanic people who had invaded Italy in the late 500's. They had been a source of trouble to the popes ever since. In conquering them, Charlemagne followed Pepin's policy of friendship and cooperation with the Roman Catholic Church. This also served Charlemagne's own interests, because he became ruler of the Lombard kingdom in Italy.

The long Saxon war was the most important of Charlemagne's military ventures. The Saxons, who held the whole northwestern part of Germany, were pagans. Their defeat after 30 years of war prepared the way for the religious conversion and civilization of Germany.

By means of other wars, Charlemagne put down a rebellion in Aquitaine, added Bavaria to his kingdom, and established several border states to protect his outlying conquests. In eastern Europe, he defeated the Slavs and Avars and made possible eastward migration by the Germans.

Charlemagne had built a vast and sprawling state that shared borders with such different peoples as the Slavs, Byzantines, and Moslems. He defended the Roman Catholic Church and constantly extended its power. He was far more powerful than the imperial successors of Constantine, the first Christian emperor in the West, and he ruled a much more extensive area. Because of his great holdings, he decided to revive the Roman Empire, but as a new empire that was European and Christian in Character. The relations of the popes with the Byzantine, or Eastern Roman, emperors in Canstantinople had been breaking down since the middle 700's. An alliance between the Roman Catholic Church and the Franks, accomplished by proclaiming Charlemagne emperor, made good sense. Pope Leo III placed the imperial crown on Charlemagne's head on Christmas Day, 800. The most important effect of this act was that it revived the idea of empire in the West, an idea which caused both harm and good in succeeding centuries.

Einhard, Charlemagne's secretary and friend, described the emperor as large and strong of body, fond of active exercise, genial but dignified, and sensible and moderate in his way of life. Charlemagne clearly recognized his duties and responsibilities, and was a tireless worker. He could not reverse the long trend toward decentralized government. But he could and did control the power of the nobles and maintain a considerable degree of law and order in a troubled age. His administrative methods helped raise the standard of living.

Charlemagne's greatest contribution was his work as a patron of culture and extender of civilization. The Palace School, set up at his capital in Aachen under the leadership of the English scholar Alcuin (735-804), stimulated interest in education, philosophy, and literature. Most of the leading scholars were churchman, so this vast cultural activity greatly strengthened the church and had far-reaching and lasting results. In this way, Charlemagne, by means of his power and eminence, gave western Europe a unified culture so strong that it survived the terrible invasions and disorders of the next 200 years.

[10345] Robert enlisted in Co. A, 77th Ill. 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 President of the Avery Corn-Planter Company of Peoria, Ill. [and] the inventor of the Avery Corn-Planter, as well as other useful implements, and owns a controlling interest in the factory at Peoria.

-- History of Knox County, p 840

Union soldier Robert H. Avery of Galesburg, Ill., survived confinement in the infamous Confederate military prison at Andersonville, Ga., where 13,000 of his fellow prisoners died. One of the ways he kept his wits about him was by sketching a corn planter of his own design.

The detailed sketch of this planter eventually became the basis of the Avery Co. of Peoria, Ill., and half a century later, the firm was calling itself "The Largest Tractor Company in the World," employing 2,600 men and producing eight different tractors, as well as motor cultivators, trucks,

It is peculiarly refreshing, in these days of defections, when names that once were regarded as synonyms of commercial honor, have become disgraced or tainted with suspicion, to turn to those who have closed their earthly account, leaving a record unassailed and unassailable. They restore our waning confidence in men, and encourage us still to strive after legitimate success, which as they have shown is really attainable. Among these none have left a brighter record than Robert H. Avery, founder of the immense business which is now the Avery Company of Peoria.

Peoria has been remarkable for many years for the extent and rapid development of its manufacturing industries, especially along the line of agricultural implements. Peoria is recognized today as the center for this industry in the middle west, and the rich farm regions around the city owe much of their growth and development to the implements manufactured there, for tilling the soil and harvesting the crops.

The Avery Company today is the largest manufacturer of agricultural implements in the city, and it owes its success to the business qualities and strict integrity of its founder, Robert H. Avery. A good portion of the history of our country is preserved in the biographies of leading and active men who have borne an important part in the various enterprises of their time. The characters and good deeds of good men should be sacredly preserved, not only for the happiness and satisfaction which a record of them will give to all those immediately related to them, and their posterity in after generations, but also for the good example which the lives of such men, furnish to the young of our land, to follow in their footsteps, and thus further advance the true interests of our country.

Robert H. Avery was born in Galesburg, Knox county, Illinois, January 21, 1840. He grew up on a farm, familiar from youth with all the needs and wants of the farmer. He was educated in the common schools of his home town, and had barely completed his education when the Civil war called him, as it did so many of the young men of his time to fight for the preservation of the Union. He served honorably for three years. Eight months of his service was spent in Andersonville prison. The long days, utterly without work, offered ample opportunities for his active mind to devise and invent. The result of the eight months' imprisonment was the plan of his first farm tool - a cultivator. He completed his invention as far as he could without any implements whatever. He carried the design from Andersonville, and upon his release built the completed implement, and laid the foundation of the magnificent business of today.

When the war was over, Robert Avery returned to the farm, and with the aid of his brother Cyrus M. Avery, built the perfected tool, which he called "The Avery Cultivator." This lead at once to other farm implements, a stalk-cutter and planter, both of which he named after himself, and which are to this day in extensive use. Robert and Cyrus Avery entered into partnership and conducted a small business in Galesburg. This proved so prosperous, that in 1882, the brothers removed their small establishment to Peoria. The following year the partnership was incorporated under the name of the Avery Planter Company, w1th a capital stock of two hundred thousand dollars, with Robert H. Avery as its president, an office which he held until his death in 1892. During the ten years of his life in Peoria, Mr. Avery saw his business increase from a little plant in a one-story frame building, to a magnificent institution employing over one hundred and fifty men and with an immense output of cultivators, corn planters, stackers, threshing machines, check-rowers, etc. Even this, however, represented only the beginnings of the growth of the Avery Company. Robert Avery was not destined to see the consummation of his labors.

In 1899, seven years after his death the company was reincorporated, the capital stock increased to six hundred thousand dollars, and the name changed to The Avery Manufacturing Company. It was reorganized in 1907 under the name of the Avery Company, and its capital stock still further increased to two million five hundred thousand dollars. Magnificent additions have been made, a whole village has grown up around it, automobile implements have been added to the output, the working force has tripled, and the name of Avery Company has grown more honored with the passing years.

This magnificent success rests on the broad foundation of Robert H. A very 's character and attainments. He was a man of marked capacity and decided character, and of the most undoubted integrity. He was modest and unassuming in his deportment, and retiring in his habits, but in whatever position he was placed he was emphatic and decided. He was possessed of business acumen, clear insight and ability to manage, control and direct. Of impressive personality, he possessed throughout his life such courage, self-assertion and mental as well as moral force as are seldom met with in any calling. He was a rare leader of men, and seldom were his judgments faulty. Frauds and pretenders of every sort he would not tolerate. He never forsook a friend and honor and honesty were his mottoes for all living. He always carried a genial humor that drew people to him. The most marked of all his characteristics was his marvelous force.

The memory of his upright life remains as a blessed benediction to those who were his associates. He was one of those characters whom God has not permitted to live in vain and for naught. From his life may be deduced a moral of great value, and from it may be formed a model by which mothers may well strive to form the characters of their sons.
