Note:
A note received from Gordon Hillman of Sarnia, Ontario on 8 Dec 1998:
The area that the Gardner's were baptized is in my Ward boundries. It used to be called Gardner's Mills and is now known as Alvinston, in Lambton County, not Kent. After the Gardners and others in the area joined the church, they migrated to Nauvoo. They lacked a road to Port Sarnia, (now Sarnia-my hometown), so they cut a road out of the woods from Gardner's Mills to the Old Military Road. To this day that roadway is called, "Nauvoo Road", and in 1946, one hundred years after the migration, a plaque was erected in Alvinston that reads:

In 1846 a section of road was chopped through the forest to intersect the London Road by a group of converts to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints enroute from Gardner's Mills to Nauvoo, Illinois. Among them was Archibald Gardner, the first settleer of Alvinston, who build and operated the first grist mill in Brooke Township. The Nauvoo road legally sanctioned as a Brooke Township highway November 22, 1851, comprises that portion of Highway 79 from road allowance between concessions 8 and 9 to the northern boundary of the township. This stone from Gardner's Mill was contributed by the Brooke and Alvinston Agricultural Society to whom it was presented by Duncan J. McEachren, who provided for its removal from the original mill site on the east bank of the Sydenham River near Alvinston.

The stone and plaque were erected August 16, 1946 by Ontario members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, descendants and relatives of Archibald Gardner, and the Utah Pioneer Trails and Landmark Association.

Came to Canada on the ship "Buckingham" with mother and siblings.

This mill cost $33 to build. He also built a saw mill here as well.

Built a grist mill here.

Archibald was re-united with his family here, after being run out of Canada by disgruntled business men.

10 June 1847 was the date this group of Saints left Winter Quarters for the Salt Lake Valley. They left with the 2nd company of 1500 people under the leadership of John Taylor. They were part of the second 100 wagons under the command of Captain Edward Hunter, and The third ten with Archibald Gardner as Captain.

Archibald left his Canada home and traveled to Nauvoo, then to Winter Quarters, Nebraska. During the travel from Canada to Winter Quarters, they were named "The Canada Company". They later left for the Salt Lake Valley, where he was a Captain of the company of 10.

Member of John Taylor's First Pioneer Company: In the 2nd Hundred; Edward Hunter, Captain: First Fifty, Joseph Horne, Captain: 3rd ten, Archibald Gardner, Captain. Organized and departed Winter Quarters: 17 Jun 1847 and arrived Salt Lake Valley 29 Sep 1847.

Archibald Gardiner
Noble, Generous, Kind and True to All
Pioneer of 1847
Born at Kilsythe, Scotland Sept. 2, 1814
Died in Salt Lake City, Ut. Feb, 8, 1902
This monument has been erected as a tribute to him in
remembrance of his accomplishments as a mill builder
and his lifelong dedication to helping people. He arrived
in Afton in October 1889. By December he was producing
flour and lumber which were badly needed by the early
settlers. The water powered mills were built at the
mouth of Swift Creek Canyon. His foresight helped save
the settlers from starvation the following winter.
This monument is not just for his work in Star Valley.
He was known as the pioneer builder of the west, having
built over 35 mills, many canals and bridges. He faithfully
served his family, church, community and country
his entire life.
