NOTE: April 20, 2000 (Lovell Killpack Orem, Utah)
This morning I spoke with a Foote family cousin, Barbara wife of NormanWright, living in Provo. She had discovered while doing research for the biography of Darius Clement, husband of Betsey Foote, a sister to Warren Foote, that in the Warren Foote Autobiography we had left out a short item for July 30, 1846. After receiving her correction from the original manuscript, I was checking our books from the two printings my brother Garth and I had assisted with and discovered it had not been included in either of the printings. As I was adding it to the computer file for Volume I, I became interested in the item just before it:

Quoting from Warren Foote Journal - Volume 1 Page 101:
"July 29th 1846
I came across Laura Bess, a cousin and daughter of Aunt Lowly Richardson. I had not seen her for about nine years. When we left Greenwood she did not belong to the church. When we lived in Illinois her Mother used to get me to answer the letters that she got from Laura. She was opposed to some of the doctrines taught by the saints, and I recollect on one occasion in the year of 1839 of answering one of her letters in which she had quite an array of arguments to refute Mormonism. Aunt sent for me to come to her house and write an answer. I took up her arguments one after another and quoted scripture to prove that the doctrines of the Latter Day Saints are the doctrines of the bible, and therefore the only true gospel, by which means I upset all her arguments, and left her without any foundation to stand on. This was about three years before I was baptized. She says that that letter of mine entirely convinced her of the truth of "Mormonism." Her husband died after joining the church in Greenwood N.Y. She is going with the church."

I became curious about who Laura Bess was and so I checked my genealogy database and didn't find much so I then looked into my copies of the Church FamilySearch files and found out the following very interesting information:

Laura Bess married William Crestfield Moody. They had 8 children, among whom was Laura Moody who married Abraham Alonzo Kimball, son of Heber C. Kimball and Helen Moody, who married Frank Noble Hinckley, son of Ira Nathaniel Hinckley, grandfather of Gordon B. Hinckley.

Did the conversion made possible by Warren Foote of Laura Bess play an important part in shaping the future direction of the Church through Laura Bess and her husband?  Do we fully realize the importance of sharing our testimony of the Gospel?

This person was baptized by Presiding Elder Daniel A. Miller, Freedom Branch, Montebello, Hancock, Illinois.

Warren was re-baptized on August 2, 1855 by Elder Jehu Cox and was re-confirmed by Henry Hardy Wilson and Grin Jefferds. Nearly all of the Union Ward was re-baptized on that day. Warren, along with nearly all of the Union Ward was re-baptized again on October 28, 1856; he does not say who Re-Baptized him. The Sacrament was ordered to be withheld until the above was done. May 28, 1865 Warren Foote was voted unanimously to preside over the new settlement of Saint Joseph, Arizona ( in the Muddy Settlements).  He was nominated by Thomas Smith who was under the direction of President George A. Smith. The settlement at Saint Joseph was broken up in 1866 and most of the settlers moved to Saint Thomas until the area was made part of Nevada and was finally broken completely because of the higher taxes in Nevada. Warren was next instrumental in
the settling of Glendale, Kane County, Utah in March of 1871, where he lived the rest of his life.  He was ordained a High Priest on August 5, 1877 by Erastus Snow, Leonard John Nuttall and Howard O.

("was he President of the Indian Mission or possibly a Branch President?").

George A. Brown Journal, page 95: (Salt Lake City, Utah, as copied August 8, 1949, by George A. Brown):  Ruth Brown Lewis: "Thomas was the first of his family to leave Stewarton. When he was seventeen years of age he moved to Musselboro, Scotland. He attended night classes in Edinburgh and taught school in the daytime. How long he taught there is not known. But in his obituary in the Salt Lake Tribune, dated March 23, 1874, it was stated that a medal had been found among his belongings that was awarded to the 'Mr. T.D. Brown... Academy 1834... on the other side was Edinburgh.

Family tradition says that he had an early marriage, but there is little record to bear out the facts. He married Sarah Godwin (widow Sherratt, late wife of Smith Sheratt). Sarah Sherratt lived at Scholargreen, Cheshire, England, on a landed estate. She apparently had a large home with many luxuries and servants and farm hands to care for her fields and orchards. She had two sons, William and John. John had suffered an attack of scarlet fever while an infant, which left him deaf and dumb.

Thomas heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ and received a very strong testimony of it's truthfulness. He was baptized on 9 June 1844, by Elder Thomas Ward. Later he was able to convert his wife and two stepsons. They were baptized by Elder Orson Hyde, 6 December 1846.

The family moved to Liverpool, England. Thomas taught school there. Later he became the cashier of the British and North American Mail Steamship Company.

At a conference held in Manchester, England, April 6-8, 1845, Thomas was one of a group of ten selected to draw up rules to govern a new joint stock company. Thomas was one of the trustees and cash-keepers for the company.

Thomas was ordained an Elder in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and a vote of thanks was given him for his services in this conference. Through the next three years, the name of T.D. Brown appears often in the pages of the Millennial Star.

In 1851, Thomas returned to England and baptized his mother, Agnes into the Church. His parents returned to America with him 6 March, 1852. They sailed on the ship Rochawas.

...On August 22, 1849, an announcement in the Kanesville, Iowa newspaper, 'Frontier Guardian', carried a large notice that 'Brown and Barham's' store had a sale. By October, the store had become 'Brown and Miller's' store. The paper also carried an announcement that William Sherratt, age twenty-eight, had died of quick consumption (Tuberculosis).

...Thomas and his family moved to Salt Lake City and was in business in the Fall of 1851. When he came to Utah, he had been unable to transport all the goods from his store. In 1852, his wife Sarah went back to Kanesville and helped Henry W. Miller close out the business and come west. After this, he carried on his business in Salt Lake and opened a branch in Stockton, Utah, with his son James.

He lived in the Fourteenth Ward. He seems to have been a man of some wealth, compared to his neighbors. January 25, 1854, shows a list of emigrants helped by T.D. Brown.

His first home in Salt Lake was connected with his business. Later he built a two-story home at 522 East Second South. His home must have been quite spacious, for the meetings of the Deseret Philharmonic Society were held in his large room.

Thomas had worked hard to get his family to Salt Lake and set up in business there. On 10 April 1854, sixteen men were set-apart to be Missionaries to the Southern Indian Mission. Thomas was appointed Clerk and Recorder for this Mission. He was to start in 3 days. His wife and family would remain in Salt Lake and take care of his business while he was gone.

While serving on his mission, he became very good friends with William Wesley Willis, who was serving in the Indian Mission. His family lived in Cedar City. He married in polygamy Mary Lucretia in the Cedar City Endowment House. That winter Thomas taught school in Cedar City and the next Spring he returned to Salt Lake City. He intended to return to his mission and his wife, but President Brigham Young informed him that he was released from his mission.

Governor Brigham Young sold him a surveyor's compass and leveling equipment and appointed him to survey to bring water from the Weber River down for irrigation. He worked at this for 6 weeks. He then went to survey at Fort Bridger, Wyoming. When the Handcart Companies were having troubles, he went to help them come on to Salt Lake. In June, 1857, he was sent to survey at Fort Supply, Idaho.

He served in the 7th and 9th Wards. In February 1857, he was called to be a Corresponding Secretary to Brigham Young. Thomas served in many positions in the Church and in the Territorial Government. In January, 1857, he was appointed as Territorial Road Commissioner."

Heather Grimwood 124 Thomas St. Waikouaiti, Otago, New Zealand [1999, 2001] "The Thomas Brown born 16th and baptized 20th Dec 1807 (Stewarton O.P.R.) has a James as father ...weaver...and Agnes Dunlop as mother ...that equates with your information as the minister could easily have got the birth date wrong...the baptismal date would have been the important one.
A James Brown ...weaver and an Agnes Dunlop ...both in Stewarton... were married 24th April 1807, which seems to be the one.
The Thomas Brown / Jean Galt marriage is recorded in Stewarton OPR as 14th April 1787, but as she was from Kilmaurs parish the marriage might have taken place there, and 14th could have been a calling-of-the-banns date, but near enough whatever..
James was baptized 9th March 1788....Thomas 23rd July 1789 (Thomas a merchant now)...Mary 30 Dec 1790.... Thomas may have married next a Jean Gibb but I've not followed that up."

Book: Before and After Mount Pisgah, by Clare B. Christensen says the following on page 255:
"Edwin Whiting had tried to grow fruit at Manti, Utah since his return from Ohio. The seasons at Manti had been cold. Brigham Young advised Edwin to move to Springville, Utah where the winters were more mild. In 1861 Edwin made the move. He bought land from the Hulets. That same year Edwin's cousin, Sylvanus Cyrus Hulet was called to take his family and help with the settlement at St. George, Utah."
After having read the foregoing quote I would assume that Melvin, Alvin, and Francis Whiting were born and died at Springville or Mapleton and were buried someplace in the area.

HISTORY: (Compiled by Jennie Bird Hill, daughter of Abby Ann Whiting, daughter of Edwin and Hannah Whiting- 1919):
"About the year 1800, in the little town of Lee, Berkshire County, Massachusetts, near the border of New York, lived the family of Elisha and Sally Hulett Whiting. Elisha Whiting's father was a sea captain and lived in Connecticut. He died when Elisha was very young. His mother, not knowing what else to do, bound him to an old Quaker, who was very cruel to him, and after a few years, he ran away to Massachusetts and worked on a farm with a wheelwright. Here he was married to Sally Hulett. They were highly respected, honest, generous and firm in their convictions.
Elisha Whiting followed the trade of wagon and chair maker and did his work well. His wife was very gifted in making prose and poetry, a characteristic that has been bequeathed to many of the Whiting descendants. To Elisha and Sally Whiting, twelve children were born, eight sons and four daughters as follows: (1) Charles, (2) William, (3) Edwin, (4) Charles, (5) Katherine Louisa, (6) Harriet, (7) Sally Emeline, (8) Chauncey, (9) Almond, (10) Jane, (11) Sylvester, and (12) Lewis.
Edwin Whiting was born September 9 1809, the third child of this family. When he was six years old, his parents moved to Nelson, Portage County, Ohio. At that time, it was the western frontier of the U.S.A. but probably the very his father wished to be to get a suitable timber for his trade, for the support of his large family.
Edwin Whiting's chance for education was very limited, but they were all taught the "3 R's", Readin', Ritin', and 'Rithmetic, and he wrote an legible hand, an extraordinary feat for his time. At an early age, he wrote credible verse.
His early life in the forest, no doubt, accounts for his love of the out-of-doors, the beauties of nature, the trees, the flowers, the mountains and the desire to hunt. One Sunday morning, when but a small boy, he decided to go hunting. He knew this was contrary to his parent's teachings, so he tried to draw his gun through the cracks between the logs of his bedroom and go unmolested. His gun caught and was discharged, inflicting a serious wound in his left arm. This, he said, was a lesson to observe the Sabbath Day and to obey his parents.
He learned the chair making trade from his father and his workmanship was considered very good.
In 1833, when Edwin was twenty-four years old, he married Elizabeth Partridge Tillotson, an Ohio girl of French descent. She was a highly educated school teacher, quite an accomplishment for those days.
In 1837, the Gospel was brought to the Whiting family. Edwin and his wife, his father and mother and some of his brothers and sisters joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They were baptized by Thomas Marsh in 1838.
Here, as in the time of Christ and His Apostles, the humble, hard -working class of people were the ones to listen and accept the Gospel of truth. They were among the early members of our church and soon joined the saints in Kirtland, Ohio. It was here that their trials, hardships and persecutions began and it took true manhood, womanhood, and faith in God to endure. They were forced to leave their new comfortable home, complete with
furniture, orchards and land in Kirtland, Ohio and took only their clothing and a few valued relics and went to Far West, Missouri. By this time, Edwin and Elizabeth had four children: William, Helen Amelia, Sarah Elizabeth and Emily Jane. They were only in Far West a short time and had just built a new home, when the mob, several thousand strong,, ordered them out. Every house in the village was burned except father Elisha Whiting's, which was spared because he was so sick then could not move him.
We remember of hearing aunt Elizabeth tell how she sat on the pile of bedding far into the night with little daughter Jane in her arms. Little Jane died soon after from exposure and lack of proper food. Sarah clapped her hands at the big bonfire the mob had made with their fences and the select wood from her father's chair shop. They were compelled to flee again so they joined the saints at Lima in father Isaac Morley's branch, where Edwin Whiting acted as counselor to brother Morley.
For Several years, the saints were happily building up the city of Nauvoo and their temple. Here they worshipped God without so much persecution as they had experienced at Lima. Edwin was appointed Colonel in the Nauvoo Legion and was an active worker at all times for the up-building of His Church.
Through the advice of those in authority, and for a righteous purpose, he entered the law of plural marriage. On January 3rd 1845, he married Almira Meacham. The following year, January 27, 1846, he married Mary Elizabeth Cox.
That same year, he was called on a mission to Pennsylvania and was there at the time of the martyrdom of the Prophet Joseph and Hyrum Smith. He soon returned home and took up arms with his bretheren to protect his property and the lives of his family.
During the battle of the Crooked River, his brother Charles was killed.
Still a greater test awaited him, his brothers, Almond, Sylvester, Chauncey and Lewis and his sister, Louisa did not feel that Brigham Young should be the leader of the Church so they followed Alpheus Cutler and called themselves "Cutlerites" and moved up into Clitheral, Minnesota. To this day they hold tenaciously to the teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith. They still correspond with the children of Edwin Whiting, and have given us, for temple work, an extensive genealogy of the Whiting family.
Edwin Whiting, his families, his father and mother stayed with the saints, who were compelled to move west as far as Mt. Pisgah.
