    Comments:      In 1850 Jonathan had a household of seven, with a real wealth of $30 and no personal wealth. Comments: #21. Jonathan came to Utah in 1850 with the Captain Johnson company. 2. Jonathan served as counselor in the bishopric of the Willard ward. He was a veteran of the Indian war. Comments: #31. My Great-Grandfather, Jonathan Sawyer Wells was born in Cannon, Grafton County, New Hampshire, on June 3, 1805 to Judah and Ethelinda Otis Wells. Little is known of his boyhood, but it is apparent that he, at least, left New Hampshire before his 24th birthday, as his marriage to Margaret Gardner took place on June 23, 1829, in Erie County Pennsylvania. She was the daughter of Nathaniel and Hannah Briggs Gardner, and was born in Johnstown, Montgomery County, New York on September 15, 1811, their family having moved to Pennsylvania in the meantime. Jonathan was twenty four and Margaret was eighteen at the time of their marriage, and it would seem that they remained in Pennsylvania until 1843, at which time they had six of their children. On June 17, 1840 Margaret's brother Benjamin and his entire family were baptized members of the Church. It is supposed that Jonathan and Margaret became members about this time also, because they came with the Gardner family, in the fall of 1843, to gather with the Saints in Nauvoo. Jonathan and his family settled in Nauvoo, but the Gardnerfamily moved to a place called Bear Creek, 20 miles south of Nauvoo, near Morley, Illinois, where they remained until September 10, 1845. They had built a home and established a farm which they were building up, when a mob came, burned their home, destroyed their crops and forced them to leave. The family were all sick in bed except two. The mob came before sunrise and ordered them out of the house or they would burn the house with them in it. Benjamin went to the gate and explained to them that his family were all sick and that he had no place to take them, but it made no difference. With an oath the men ordered them out. The men helped carry the bedding out and lay it on the grass which was wet with dew. Then they carried out the sick ones and lay them on the bedding. Then they set the house on fire and left to do damage to other Mormon families. The sick lay shivering in the cold damp air while their mother cooked breakfast on the coals of the burning house. They had $75.00 in cash and the mob relieved them of that. When the news of the mobbing and burning reached Nauvoo, Jonathan hurried south to rescue his poor destitute relatives. He brought them to his home in Nauvoo and then went back after their corn, harnesses and other things which they had left in a cellar. The mob had come back and taken everything. Shortly after this Grandma became very homesick for her home in Pennsylvania and her parents, who were elderly. Her father was 77 years old and her mother was 75, and she wanted to see them, so Grandpa and Grandma and their children returned to Pennsylvania and stayed for a year. Then their desire for the Church and the Saints drove them back to Nauvoo. Grandpa worked on the temple and he helped to carve the oxen for the baptismal font. They loved the prophet and for a time Grandpa was the prophet's bodyguard. These were times of great trials for the Mormon people, and then the great sorrow came when Joseph and Hyrum were killed, and finally they, with the other Saints were driven from their homes in the dead of winter and forced to cross the icy Mississippi River and find shelter in the State of Iowa. They lived in Iowa for four years and here their twins were born, Judah Smith and Julia Ann Wells, on October 25, 1846. Once Grandpa got a job shucking corn on shares. A mob came, arrested him, put him in jail and kept him there for six weeks. They claimed he was stealing corn and threatened to kill him, but the gentile men for whom he worked came to his rescue, they went his bond and told the mob that he was a good honest man, a fine worker and that they could kill him only over their dead bodies. In the spring of 1850 Grandpa and Grandma Wells and their family left Iowa and with other Mormon pioneers they traveled the old Mormon trail to join the body of the saints in the Rocky Mountains. They arrived in Utah during the summer and settled in the Lorin Farr area in Ogden. Here they remained for about one year. In the spring of 1851 the Jonathan Wells company with others left Ogden and came north. The following is taken from the Willard Centennial Booklet and was written by Bethia Fordham Wells, who was the wife of Jonathan's oldest son Lyman: "On the 3rd of March, 1851, the first settlers of Willow Creek (Willard) came north from Ogden and camped on the north side of Willow Creek and prepared to make permanent homes here. At that time this region was a part of Weber County. On the night of their arrival, a foot of snow came to welcome them. In all, there were nineteen in the party, eleven adults and eight children. They were not discouraged. They had come to make their homes, to till the soil and become permanent citizens. The members of the party were: Jonathan Wells and his wife Margaret Gardner, and their children Otis Nathaniel, Erastus Nelson, Hulda Mariah, Sarah Matilda, Julia Ann and Judah Smith Wells. Jonathan's oldest son Lyman and his wife Bethia and small son Mortimer, the oldest daughter Samantha and her husband John Memory McCrary and their small son William Austin. With them were Elisha Mallory and wife Mary, Mary Ann Yearsley, her son Nathaniel and a young man who lived in her home. The last three named did not remain long, but moved back to Ogden. The morning after their arrival, the men went into the Willard Mountain and brought down logs to build some houses. They all worked together, in what they called "house raising." The houses had no floors, windows or fireplaces. The roofs were made of split logs with dirt piled over them, and when it rained, mud trickled down the walls." The first two homes were built for the two young couples who were expecting babies. Elisha Mallory's first and then the young McCrary's (Samantha). The cooking was done outside. The babies were washed out of doors, as it was warmer outside than in. Soap to wash the babies was made in a frying pan. Immediately claims were laid out and crops were planted. A school house was built and it was also their church and place of amusement. Jonathan and Margaret's youngest daughter Margaret Ann wasborn on June 11, 1851 in Ogden where Grandma had gone for this event. This Wells family lived in Willard for fifteen years, and then were sent north to settle Deweyville. Grandpa Wells was a Seventy in the priesthood. He was a bishop's counselor. He was justice of the peace. He was a veteran Indian fighter. He was a builder of communities, an honest, energetic, good man, an honored and revered father, a devoted husband. Early in 1866 Grandpa and Grandma returned to Iowa. A year and a half later Grandpa Jonathan Sawyer Wells died there, in Harrison county, on the 27th of July 1867. Grandma Margaret Gardner Wells had to make the trip back home without him. Grandma died in their home in Deweyville on October 5, 1878. Patriarchal Blessing---A Blessing by John Smith, Patriarch, upon the head of Jonathan S. Wells, son of Judah Wells and Etherlinda Otis, born January 3, 1805 Grafton County, New Hampshire.
