BIOGRAPHY: William Albert Hunt was born 14 January 1861 in Gunnison, Sanpete, Utah Territory to Emanuel and Phoebe Louisa Fellows Hunt. He was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on 1 January 1870 at the age of eight. His family came to Utah Territory with the Richard Ballantyne Company in 1855. Her grandfather William was 71 and he died shortly after they left Mormon Grove, Atchison, Kansas. Her grandmother died while they were at Mormon Grove. Her father Emmanuel was 24; his brother Levi was 21; his brother Stephen was 20. They departed with 429 individuals and 46 wagons on 1 July 1855 from the outfitting post at Mormon Grove, Kansas (near Atchison). The train included 220 oxen, 24 cows, 3 horses, and 1 mule. Each wagon carried 700 pounds of flour, 200 pounds of corn meal, and 1,100 pounds of baggage, plus spokes and axel trees, hinges, and cooking utensils. Most people in the fourth emigrant company of 1855 were Perpetual Emigration Fund (PEF) passengers who, under Elder Richard Ballantyne,had traveled from Liverpool, England, to America aboard the ship Charles Buck. Ballantyne himself was a returning missionary (he had served in India). The ship sailed on January 17 and, after an eventful 56-day voyage, arrived at New Orleans March 14. The passengers next boarded the steamboat Michigan and traveled up the Mississippi to St. Louis, arriving there March 27. Ballantyne and about 250 of his party then continued up the Missouri to Atchison, Kansas Territory, on the riverboat Golden State, arriving April 5. When Elder Ballantyne and party arrived, it did not have a boat landing or streets, and there were only six houses. The emigrants helped create streets, worked at a sawmill, and built a boat landing. Next, the company moved to Mormon Grove (a few miles from Atchison), where Church officials had claimed land. There, the travelers established a 160-acre PEF farm. By July 7, they had completed a ditch and a log fence and had ploughed and planted about 40 acres. A few crops were already growing. Cattle had to be broken and teamsters had to be trained. This was accomplished by having the men yoke the oxen and drag logs around the camp. All PEF passengers received food for the plains. At the Sweetwater River, 16 wagons were involved in a stampede, and it took half a day to repair broken wheels and tongues. By then the train was out of provisions and the travelers faced starvation.Fortunately, a few days later, on Little Sandy, the company met supply wagons from the Salt Lake Valley. That night the people celebrated until late in the evening. On August 29 the company was at Independence Rock; by September 16 it was at Fort Bridger. On September 24 1855, the Nauvoo brass band, accompanied by many citizens of Salt Lake City, came to meet the company. With them were President Erastus Snow and wife and sister Ballantyne. These visitors joined the emigrants in feasting, dancing, singing, and praying.Women and some men wept for joy. The next day the train paraded into town. His mother came with the Edward Hunter/Jacob Foutz Company in 1847. Her father Albert was 47; William Harlow was 18; Amelia Maria was 9; and Phoebe Louisa was 6. Her mother had died on 14 October 1845 in Nauvoo, Hancock,Illinois. They departed on 19 June 1847 with 155 individuals and 59 wagons which departed from the outfitting post on the Elkhorn River about 27 miles west of Winter Quarters, Nebraska. From the journal of Wilmer Bronson who was in the company: “When the wagons were strung out in traveling order, formed as we were in two lines abreast, they extended almost as far as the eye could see;while the face of nature clothed with all its majestic beauty and grandeur, would have furnished a scene worthy of the artist's pencil and would have inspired a feeling of sacred devotion in those who beheld it. A military organization was effected in order to protect ourselves against the attacks of hostile bands of Indians who roamed about the country in great numbers. We might with some degree of propriety be regarded as intruders. Consequently, a thorough system was entered into by which a strong guard was posted around our camp every night.In this way we had strong hopes of avoiding trouble with our red neighbors. Our progress was slow in consequence of the company being so large. The dust which would naturally arise from such a vast number of animals and wagons traveling as we were in a somewhat sandy country was very dense and suffocating. A few days travel took us beyond the reach of wood for fuel. So we were compelled to resort to the necessity of burning buffalo chips in order to cook our food.  After a somewhat wearisome journey of thirty days duration, we arrived at a place called Fort Laramie, the only signs of civilization we had seen since leaving Winter Quarters.This was a very poor speciman, for the entire place consisted of five or six log cabins inhabited by some Frenchmen who had married squaws for wives and were keeping a kind of Trading Post to accommodate the Indians. In the month of August, 1847. We were overtaken in a tremendou ssnowstorm of such uncommon severity as to chill some of our stock to death. The condition of the weather necessitated a hasty exit fromour uncomfortable situation.  A reaction took place in our feelings as we emerged from the mouth of Emigration Canyon into a parched barren desolate looking valley whose surface was covered with large crickets whose unsating appetite threatened the entire destruction of every green vegetable with their reach. At a distance of two and a half miles was presented to our view the wagons and tents of the Pioneer company who had located themselves on a little stream which afterwards was called City Creek.”They arrived in the Salt Lake valley on 1 October 1847. Her parents married on 2 March 1857 in Nephi, Juab, Utah Territory. Her father was 25 and her mother was 16. They had three children, Sally Maria born 12 November 1857; William Albert born 14 January 1861; and Phoebe Ann born 4 September 1862. The last two were born in Gunnison, Sanpete, Utah Territory. His father died on 2 March 1863 in Gunnison, Sanpete, Utah Territory at the age of 31. On his deathbed, he asked his brother Levi to marry Phoebe Louisa and take care of his three children. He was buried in Gunnison, Sanpete, Utah Territory. Levi married his mother Phoebe on 4 April 1863 in the Endowment House in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, Utah Territory. Levi was 29 and Phoebe was 22. Levi and Phoebe had eight children, six girls and two boys. William Albert received his endowments on 29 October 1886 in the St. George Temple in St. George, Washington, Utah Territory. He married Emma Evaline Knight on 18 February 1896 at the age of 35. One year later they were sealed in the St. George temple, Washington, Utah on 18 February 1897. Emma Evaline was born 26 December 1863 in Santa Clara, Washington,Utah Territory to Samuel and Karen Kirstine Hermansdatter Knight. She was baptized into the Church on 7 September 1873 at the age of nine. She was 32 years old when they married. Her father Samuel, was born in 1832 to Newell and Sally Coburn Knight in Jackson County, Missouri. Her grandfather was Joseph Knight. In Newell's Journal he tells of the birth of Samuel: "On the 14th of October, my wife bore me a son. She had never given birth to a living child, and the doctors who had attended her had said it was impossible that she should. But Brother Joseph blessed her and said she should have the desire of her heart. She never doubted the prophet's words and as soon as her son was born she desired him to be called Samuel, for she said she had asked him from the Lord. My wife soon recovered from her sickness." Samuel was born at a time when the appearances of trouble became more common in Jackson County. Mormon houses were stoned; haystacks burned; and meetings were held by the old settlers to see what could be done toget rid of the Mormons. Newell heard the Prophet's call for labor on the Kirtland Temple, so he left Samuel, not quite two years old, in the care of his aged aunt and set out with others on the 900-mile journey. Samuel came to Great Salt Lake with the Abraham O. Smoot/George B.Wallace Company. They departed on 18 June 1847 with 223 individuals in the company which began its journey from the outfitting post on the Elkhorn River about 27 miles west of Winter Quarters. He was 14 years old. They arrived in the Salt Lake valley 25 through 29 September 1847. His mother Karen Kirstine Hermansdatter was born 12 May 1831 in Osterlarsker, Bornholm, Denmark. She came to the Utah Territory with the Hans Peter Olsen Company in 1854. She joined the Church on 24 January 1855 at the age of 23. Her brother also came to Utah Territory. The rest of the family stayed in Denmark. They departed on 15 June 1854 with 310 individuals and 69 wagons which began its journey from the outfitting post at Westport, Missouri. They arrived in the Salt Lake valley on 5 October 1854. They were married on 3 August 1856 in St.George. They had six children, all girls. Emma Evaline was their fourth child. They first live in Mountain Meadow, Washington, then Provo, Utah, and the Santa Clara, Washington, Utah Territory. Emma first married Myron Smith Abbott on 5 March 1886 in St. George,Washington, Utah Territory at age 48. They had one child, Samuel born 2 May 1889 in Santa Clara, Washington, Utah Territory. She divorced him in March 1894 in Bunkerville, Lincoln, Nevada at the age of 30. William Albert and Emma Evaline had two children, a girl and a boy, both born in Paragonah, Iron, Utah. Amelia Pearl was born 18 February 1898 and William Merlin was born 17 February 1901.
William died on 31 January 1904 in Meadow Valley Wash, Lincoln, Nevada in an accident at the age of 43. Because of the heat, they buried his body in Nevada. However, they put his name and death date on the headstone that they shared in Paragonah. Emma died on 21 December 1923 at age 59 in Paragonah, Iron, Utah. She was buried on 24 December 1923 in Paragonah, Iron, Utah. - Familysearch.org

BIOGRAPHY: Biography from Myron Abbott's findagrave memorial
I was born in 1837 in Perry Illinois where my father operated a yarn factory and cabinet shop. When I was 2 years old a man named Joseph Wood came to the area preaching the gospel of Christ. My father Stephen Abbott went to hear him preach and embraced the gospel. My Father moved to Nauvoo in 1842 and in 1843 was called on a mission to the Southern States. In order to fulfill his mission he with several other brethren went to rafting lumber down the Mississippi River to obtain means to support their families in their absence. He took ill and died of pneumonia when I was 8 years old. He was a kind husband and indulgent father and a true latter-day saint, ever willing to respond to every call that was made upon him by the authority of the Church. He was much respected by all who knew him. He owned property in Nauvoo, stock in the Nauvoo House, and worked on the Nauvoo Temple. He and Lyman white owned property at the Apperstone Steamboat Landing on the Mississippi Just north of the Nauvoo rapids. My Mother was a woman who endured many trials and privations of every description. Many times we were all down with fever and ague (Malaria) and not one of us able to help the other to a drink of water. Many times we had nothing to eat. On one such morning as we arose from our beds without one thing in the house to eat, my mother called the children around her. We all knelt down and called upon the Lord for help in that trying hour. Although she always prayed in her family; this particular time was long to be remembered. After praying, Mother and I went out to work in the garden to plant a few seeds. I found a dime that had been lost in a pile of straw. We had set fire to the straw the day before and it had burned over and the ashes blew off leaving the money uncovered. When I showed Mother, her poor heart leaped for joy. She exclaimed, "Now we can have something to eat." We had one cow that gave us a little milk. We purchased fifteen pounds of flour with my dime and we had a little thickened milk to eat. You cannot imagine how much rejoicing there was in our family. I often think of these things; how the Lord will provide for his children; still he will try his saints to see if they will serve him. When I was 11 years old we made the trek across the great plains to Utah. At age 23, I married Laura Josephine Allen. She was 15, beautiful, tall and well built with dark hair worn high on her head and so slender I could span her waist with both hands. She sang beautifully and we often sang duets together. We initially made our home on the Weber River in Ogden. After our 1st son was born we moved to Toquerville where we intended to stay. However, in 1863 I was involved in a quarrel with the chief of a local tribe that had scattered our herd. The chief drew his bow and arrow and I hit his arm with a spade, and broke his arm. We thought it best to go back to Ogden. I worked hard at farming and for a time worked at a lumber mill up Ogden Canyon. We were able to live but not comfortably. In 1870, I took a second wife, a divorcee named Emily Pauline Malan Farley. This seemed to be the beginning of marital troubles for Laura Josephine and I. She felt that she could stand polygamy but not polygamy and poverty too. Ultimately we were divorced in 1876, she took two daughters to California with her. I kept the 6 older children. I suffered the humiliation of a second divorce from Emily soon afterward as she went back to her former husband.
At that time I was encouraged by my sister's husband, Edward Bunker, to join him in establishing the united order at Mesquite Flats. I took my 6 children and started over in Bunkerville.

They first lived in St. George when they were married, then Mountain Meadows, Washington, Utah Territory when their first child was born. They moved to Provo where they lived a short time and then moved to Santa Clara, Washington, Utah Territory where the rest of the children were born. Her father Samuel, was born in 1832 to Newell and Sally Coburn Knight in Jackson County, Missouri. Her grandfather was Joseph Knight.

But Brother Joseph blessed her and said she should have the desire of her heart. She never doubted the prophet's words and as soon as her son was born she desired him to be called Samuel, for she said she had asked him from the Lord. My wife soon recovered from her sickness." Samuel was born at a time when the appearances of trouble became more common in Jackson County. Mormon houses were stoned; haystacks burned; and meetings were held by the old settlers to see what could be done to get rid of the Mormons. Newell heard the Prophet's call for labor on the Kirtland Temple, so he left Samuel, not quite two years old,in the care of his aged aunt and set out with others on the 900-mile journey. Samuel came to Great Salt Lake with the Abraham O. Smoot/George B.Wallace Company. They departed on 18 June 1847 with 223 individuals in the company which began its journey from the outfitting post on the Elkhorn River about 27 miles west of Winter Quarters. He was 14 years old.

By July 7, they had completed a ditch and a log fence and had ploughed and planted about 40 acres. A few crops were already growing. Cattle had to be broken and teamsters had to be trained. This was accomplished by having the men yoke the oxen and drag logs around the camp. All PEF  passengers received food for the plains. At the Sweetwater River, 16 wagons were involved in a stampede, and it took half a day to repair broken wheels and tongues. By then the train was out of provisions and the travelers faced starvation. Fortunately, a few days later, on Little Sandy, the company met supply wagons from the Salt Lake Valley. That night the people celebrated until late in the evening. On August 29 the company was at Independence Rock; by September 16 it was at Fort Bridger. On September 24 1855, the Nauvoo Brass Band,accompanied by many citizens of Salt Lake City, came to meet the company. With them were President Erastus Snow and wife and sister Ballantyne. These visitors joined the emigrants in feasting, dancing,singing, and praying. Women and some men wept for joy. The next day,25 September 1855 the train paraded into town. His mother came with the Edward Hunter/Jacob Foutz Company in 1847. Her father Albert was 47; William Harlow was 18; Amelia Maria was 9; and his mother Phoebe Louisa was 6.Her mother had died on 14 October 1845 in Nauvoo, Hancock,Illinois.They departed on 19 June 1847 with 155 individuals and 59 wagons which departed from the outfitting post on the Elkhorn River about 27 miles west of Winter Quarters, Nebraska. From the journal of Wilmer Bronson who was in the company: “When the wagons were strung out in traveling order, formed as we were in two lines abreast, they extended almost as far as the eye could see;while the face of nature clothed with all its majestic beauty and grandeur, would have furnished a scene worthy of the artist's pencil and would have inspired a feeling of sacred devotion in those who beheld it. A military organization was effected in order to protect ourselves against the attacks of hostile bands of Indians who roamed about the country in great numbers. We might with some degree of propriety be regarded as intruders. Consequently, a thorough system was entered into by which a strong guard was posted around our camp every night.In this way we had strong hopes of avoiding trouble with our red neighbors. Our progress was slow in consequence of the company being so large. The dust which would naturally arise from such a vast number of animals and wagons traveling as we were in a somewhat sandy country was very dense and suffocating. A few days travel took us beyond the reach of wood for fuel. So we were compelled to resort to the necessity of burning buffalo chips in order to cook our food.  After a somewhat wearisome journey of thirty days duration, we arrived at a place called Fort Laramie, the only signs of civilization we had seen since leaving Winter Quarters.This was a very poor speciman, for the entire place consisted of five or six log cabins inhabited by some Frenchmen who had married squaws for wives and were keeping a kind of Trading Post to accommodate the Indians. In the month of August, 1847. We were overtaken in a tremendous snowstorm of such uncommon severity as to chill some of our stock to death. The condition of the weather necessitated a hasty exit from our uncomfortable situation.  A reaction took place in our feelings as we emerged from the mouth of Emigration Canyon into a parched barren desolate looking valley whose surface was covered with large crickets whose unsating appetite threatened the entire destruction of every green vegetable with their reach. At a distance of two and a half miles was presented to our view the wagons and tents of the Pioneer company who had located themselves on a little stream which afterwards was called City Creek.” They arrived in the Salt Lake valley on 1 October 1847. His parents married on 2 March 1857 in Nephi, Juab, Utah Territory. His father was 25 and his mother was 16. They had three children, Sally Maria born 12 November 1857; William Albert born 14 January 1861; and Phoebe Ann born 4 September 1862. The last two were born in Gunnison, Sanpete, Utah Territory. William Albert and Emma Evaline had two children, a girl and a boy,both born in Paragonah, Iron, Utah. Amelia Pearl was born 18 February 1898 and William Merlin was born 17 February 1901. William died on 31 January 1904 in Meadow Valley Wash, Lincoln, Nevada in an accident at the age of 43. Because of the heat, they buried his body in Nevada. However, they put his name and death date on the headstone that they shared in Paragonah. Emma died on 21 December 1923 at age 59 in Paragonah, Iron, Utah. She was buried on 24 December 1923 in Paragonah, Iron, Utah. - Familysearch.org
