“The exodus would ever be more trial than trail.”
“Come, calm or strife, turmoil or peace, life or death, in the name of Israel’s God
we mean to conquer or die trying.”
Pres. Brigham Young, as quoted by, Richard E Bennett, “Winter Quarters,” Ensign
SARAH ANN, ELIZA, ABIGAIL, SUZANNE,
What did you leave when you left your home land?
When you followed a husband, who followed his God?
Would you have come, if you had known the path your feet would trod?
Eliza, you didn't believe like your husband Sam, That God had provided a promise land.
So why did you come o'er the ocean and then, Pull that handcart thru' icy rivers and snow?
Even after he died and was left on the trail; why did you stay and embrace his beliefs
After all that? It's amazing to me.
Sarah Ann, pampered and spoiled as a child, You of all people, I would have expected to stay
In Philadelphia, where your charmed life, Had to do with ponies, and satin cushions and no strife.
Hiding, because of your "delicate condition", You listened to the truth,
And traded it all, For nail keg and goods boxes, loaded in wagons.
Women of courage, with faith in every step,
When I hear their stories, such a pattern they set,
In them, I see my way more clearly, I may get there, yet.
These stories have hardships and trials and death
But when told by those who the journey trod,
They were led and protected by the Hand of GOD.
Too many stories, I must tell some more.
Lydia and her husband left persecution in Maine, To come to Utah and try to settle again.
Elizabeth and her husband died back in Maine, neighbors dug their graves, crooked so their souls they could not claim.
Hannah in Missouri, was safe, but wait, Their neighbors were exiled, they couldn't stay.

Phoebe left some children in England, grown, to go, With their father to Utah to build a new home.
Ann, from Mars Hill, her husband dead, Watched her children pull the handcart, all of them lived.
Mary Ann, too, walked with the handcarts, when only six years old;
Now, to Mexico with her husband’s young wives she must go.
Lucy from Kentucky to Arizona much later, by train, With so many nearly grown daughters to wed.
Alice, came to Arizona and married, so young, To a man who wouldn't see his children grown.
Martha and Mary, like their mother, twins.... Left her buried in Mexico, came back alone.
Mabel dragging her children across the state, To be with her husband as work would dictate.
SARAH ANN, ELIZA, ABIGAIL, SUZANNE,
How did you feel when you left your home land?
When you followed a husband, who followed his God?
Would you have come if you had known the path your feet would trod?
Yes! You would come if you had know, the path your feet would trod!
In honor of my pioneer grandmothers: Suzanne de la Tour Lamoreaux was a Huguenot who left France 1685 so that her children could be
raised in religious freedom. Abigail Losey Lamoreaux was exiled to Canada when her family fought for the British in the Revolutionary War
and then moved to Kirtland after Parley P. Pratt converted her and her husband in Canada in 1836. Eliza Chapman Gadd left England in the
1840's after her husband and older children joined the church. They pushed a handcart in the Willie Company. Her husband and two children
died on the trail. She was baptized one month after reaching the Salt Lake valley. Sarah Ann Pedrick Asay was raised well to do, was
disowned for joining the church in the pioneer trek in the 1850's. She had to hide to hear the missionaries because genteel ladies did not go
out in public when they were expecting.
The last verse honors Lydia Young Crockett, Elizabeth Brockett Crockett, Hannah Whitcomb Haws, Phoebe Colburn Barrett, Ann
Jewell Rowley, and Mary Ann Gadd Rowley, Lucy Susan Stinson Pedrick, Alice Arminda Hendricks Asay, Martha Haws Rowley,
Mabel Asay Lamoreaux, and Martha Barrett Haws. Pioneer Sesquicentennial Project - akrc March 1997

“A Sketch of The Life of William Wallace Haws,” C H Lunt
Son William Wallace Haws had been born 5 years before 18 Feb 1835, in Green Township,
Wayne Co, Illinois. He was the 7th of 14 children, 6 girls & 8 boys. “Previous to this time they hadn’t
affiliated with any church.”
“My father spent his childhood in Illinois, on a ranch. It was located about 20 miles from
Xenia, Ill., in the northwestern part of Wayne Co. My grandparents had a herd of sheep, some cattle,
and a farm. …some distance from Nauvoo, his family hadn’t suffered the brunt of the persecution.
…leaving his friends, …brothers and sisters to join a most unpopular cause was a grave and difficult
decision to make. But, he did wish to gather with Saints, so he began to make some preparations.
“However, they didn’t leave Wayne Co. until May 1847. They traveled in a northwest direction
through Illinois, crossing the Mississippi River into Iowa, then went west past the first encampment of
the pioneers at Garden Grove, which was about 150 miles from Nauvoo, and traveled on 100 miles to
Mt Pisgah where they stayed for the winter.
“My father [William Wallace Haws] was 12. Their outfit consisted of one horse team, which
Grandfather drove, and several ox teams, which Grandfather [Grandmother?] and the children
managed. In the spring of 1848, they went to Council Bluffs, which was located on the east side of the
Missouri River, then on to Winter Quarters. They crossed the Missouri River in Lorenzo Snow’s
Company. At Winter Quarters they camped to make preparations to go west with the first company of
the season.”
“…5 months later 23 Sept 1848 …arrived in SL Valley.”
“William Wallace Haws,” by Chloe Haws Lunt
Hannah Whitcomb Haws “…parents were pioneers to Illinois. Hannah’s parents died when she
was a young child & she lived with a married sister until she was married.”
“Hannah married Gilbreth 2 June 1822. She was 16 yrs old. He was 21 years old. They first
learned about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints about 1840. Previous to this time they
hadn’t affiliated with any church.”

Phoebe Colburn married William Barrett on the 18, January 1841.
William's 1st wife died and he was left with 5 children. Because he was 21

“Even after the murder of the Prophet Joseph Smith, when the Saints
realized they must shortly leave Nauvoo, they increased their commitment to
completing the temple. The attic of the unfinished temple was dedicated as a part of
the structure where the endowment would be administered. …Brigham Young, Heber
C Kimball, and others of the Twelve Apostles remained in the temple day and night,
sleeping no more than about four hours a night.” “Almost 6,000 Latter-day Saints
received their endowments before leaving Nauvoo.”
“Our Heritage, A brief History …Latter Day Saints”, p 60
Gilbreth & Hannah Whitcomb Haws – “In 1845 …some elders
visited them & told them that the saints were being mobbed & driven from their
homes, & advised the Haws family to go west with the saints. The Quorum of the
Twelve had proposed to the governor of Illinois that the saints would leave the state
next spring. To carry out this proposal the beautiful City Nauvoo was turned into a
workshop; the sound of hammer and anvil could be hear early and late as they turned
raw materials into wagons, harnesses and yokes for the oxen.
“As Hannah and her family lived in Wayne Co, Ill. Which is some distance
from Nauvoo, their family hadn’t suffered the brunt of the persecution. To leave

“I am not sure whether the family traveled alone at this time, but it is more than
likely other people were in the party, as we learn from Aunt Lucinda’s story that there was a
small branch of the church organized at Wayne County.”
“Grandfather’s [Gilbreth Haws] family at this time consisted of the parents, six
daughters and seven sons, ranging in age from two months to twenty-two years. The oldest

Haws – “…several companies left Winter Quarters for the Rocky Mountains, Hannah &
Gilbreth’s family was among them. The trip was difficult. They washed clothes in cold water, used
buffalo chips for fuel.”
The crossing was not all unpleasant, however. One can imagine a 13 year old boy’s interest in
watching herds of buffalo, helping drive the wagons, and singing and dancing around the evening camp
fires. Just as Father took his turn dancing the Virginia Reel of Schottische, so did he take his turn in
family prayers..

Pioneers - “By 3 July 1848, some 3,000 Latter-Day Saints had departed for the
Salt Lake Valley… Those not ready to go west …some 3,000 Saints moved to new
surroundings eastward across the Missouri; the evacuation continued through the spring and
early summer. Most settled temporarily in Iowa near Miller’s Hollow, below the east bluff of
the river, where the townsite was laid out in 1847. …renamed Kanesville in April 1848 in honor
of their non-LDS friend Col Thomas Kane. …Kanesville was destine to be a major Church
gathering place, fitting-out station, & a springboard to the Great Basin. It became a layover
town where those too poor, tired, discouraged, or unprepared could delay their journey a year
or more, plant & sow crops, procure teams & outfits… After these pioneers left …new arrivals
from the East or from over seas would take their place…” After the discovery of gold in
Calif., Kanesville economy boomed. Church members prospered by selling land, goods, services,
provisions & livestock to the emigrants. “Some found the comforts of eastern Iowa a more
difficult temptation to resist than their earlier trials and sufferings.”
Bennett, Richard, E, “Winter Quarters,” Ensign 40-53

“The old fort was formed by a great many of these little houses built together in the
shape of a square with a space in the center, all doors opening into the square. Spaces were
left for gates on the east and west side of the fort. No windows were put into the houses for
fear that the Indians, who were numerous and had attacked the fort, might again do so.
There were port holes on the otter walls to provide openings for guns in case of an attack.

Sailing
“From 1840 to 1868, virtually all LDS emigrants crossed the Atlantic and Pacific in sailing
ships. …The most important type of sailing vessel in which LDS emigrants traveled was the packet
ship, the workhorse of the passenger service, …she had to withstand the violence of brutal seas and
the stress imposed by hard case masters who strove to keep a schedule under all conditions. Her
crew were often called ‘packet rats’ because of their dubious backgrounds.
“Packet ships were sturdy, full-bodied, and somewhat tubby in appearance.
“…in a 51 year period not one LDS emigrant company was lost in the Atlantic. …between
1847 & 1853, 59 such vessels were lost, with all who were on board.” “…fear of the ocean often
submerged all other hardships.” “…the safety record of these vessels was remarkable. Masters and
passengers often attributed the safe voyages to the hand of Providence, and to the fact that the
ships were usually dedicated and blessed before embarking. Many of the vessels were eventually
lost at sea, but not while transporting Latter-day Saints.
“…uniquely organized… Large companies were divided into wards, each with its own
presidency.
“In the early years, emigrants supplied their own food. Later maritime legislation required
shipping lines to provide a daily ration. Few emigrants could afford cabin fare, and sleeping
accommodations in steerage were rude and usually overcrowded. …both space and privacy were very
limited. …sea travel remained quite primitive.
“…a mock-up of steerage quarters …is a confined areas with tiered bunks ranged along each
side. A ladder or steep stairs provided the only exit, and during storms the quarters were ‘hatched
down’ to prevent water from flooding the hold. The only light came from a few lamps hanging in
strategic locations and shedding a dim glow. The only sanitary facilities were buckets or chamber
pots. Some later packets had water closets built on the main deck, but during severe storms –
sometimes lasting for days – steerage passengers were hatched down and could not get to the deck.
It is easy to imagine the resulting chaos and stench.
“Overcrowding compounded the misery of seasickness, dysentery, cholera, and other
diseases. Many emigrant companies exceeded 500 passengers. Between decks, these men women &

children huddled together in a heaving, rocking craft, suffering in body and spirit. Even under the
best conditions and discipline, the situation created a fertile environment fir the spread of disease.”
“…the Atlantic and Pacific oceans in all their vastness created feelings of awe, loneliness,
and apprehension. Converts to the church who had never been far from home soon found themselves
at the mercy varying winds and uncompromising waves. At night, lying in their berths, they could
hear the creaking and straining noises of the ship, the flap of canvas, the wind whistling through the
shrouds and rigging, and the shouting officers and crew… Below deck, the emigrants little world was
dark and confined. It was a discordant symphony of children’s crying, the retching and vomiting of
the sea sick, the muttering and groaning of despairing companions and, above all, the waves crashing
against the hull and over the deck.”
“Sometimes ships were becalmed for days, creating water and food shortages.”
“To combat disease, tedium, and discouragement, LDS emigrants established patterns of
shipboard living. Scrupulous sanitation was emphasized, including frequent fumigation and sprinkling
of lime (used as a bleaching) in living quarters. To promote health, leaders insisted that in warm and
calm weather, everyone – sick and well – spend time on deck in the air and sunshine. Religious
services, prayer meeting, entertaining events, games, instruction classes, reading, and needlework
were helpful distractions.

“By 1860 …For 3 years, Utah War problems had caused the Church to all but halt the
movement of new Saints to Utah, so, like a dam ready to burst, increasing numbers of European
Saints anxiously sought some way to emigrate. By then the PEF accounts were drained, the handcart
method was losing support, and the average cash cost for covered wagon transportation from
Florence, Nebraska, to SLC, Utah, was $50 per person for cattle, wagon, & outfit. …Pres Young…
inspired to create a brilliant new transportation system… Utahns sent wagons down to the Missouri
River valley to pick up needy emigrants and bring them back to Utah – ‘down-and-back’ wagon
companies.” Utah members were given tithing credit for sending wagons, oxen, drivers & flour east.
The flour was unloaded at 4 stations along the trail for use on the trip back. “Nearly 4,000 LD
Saints in Scandinavia, England, & the US made plans to emigrate. …chartered trains, boats, & ships
to meet a clockwork schedule designed to put emigrants at Florence, NB in time to meet the Utah
down-and-back wagon companies there. …during May, June & July… a provisions store, a warehouse,
campsites, corrals, & a weighing machine. Those who could not afford outfits signed up to travel in
