Editors Deseret News:


Reading the list of the names of the members of the Zion's camp, I found that the name of my brother Alanson Colby was not there, I thought that I would take this liberty of requesting you to add his name to the list. I know that he was in the camp, for I helped to fit him out. He started from Oakland County, Michigan, in company with Hiram Smith, Lyman Curtes, Saphronia Curtis and Charlotte Alvrert, fell in company with Joseph Smith and others and started together to Missouri. He was there through all the persecutions, and shared in all their troubles. He was with the Saints in their expulsion from Missouri. After he came out he went back and helped another family away from there. He came to Salt Lake in the fall of 1848, and with the Saints up to the day of his death, which occurred on the 19th of Feb., 1878. He was born in Vermont, on the 9th of May, 1810; joined the Church in 1834, in Michigan. He bore a faithful testimony to the truth of the latter-day work on his death-bed.

We intended to have had his death published in the Deseret News. but it was neglected until it was thought to be too late.

We, his widow and sister, are very anxious to have his name added to the list.

FANNY COLBY, his widow,
HULDA C. TEEPLES, his sister.

He was buried in the Holden City Cemetery at Holden, Millard County, Utah He has Ancestral File Number 1KFQ-JB. He was ordained a Seventy. He has more notes. "Life Stories of the Meyer Family" by Thelma Meyer Beutler..
Alanson Colby was born 9 May 1813 in New York. He later moved to Oakland County, Michigan and while there, in 1834, was converted to "Mormonism." June of that year, in company with Hyrum Smith, Lyman Curtis and others, he left Oakland County and joined the main company of Saints at Zion's Camp, Salt River, Missouri. Here he passed through the many persecutions that the saints had to bear, being driven out of that state in 1839. After making his escape from Missouri, he went back and helped another family escape and they then settled in Illinois.

Published in the Prophet Joseph Smith's discourses is a speech the prophet made, wherein he pointed to Alanson and said: "There is a man who could not deny this gospel if he wanted to, he has too much of the blood of Ephraim in his veins."

Alanson Colby was living in Nauvoo the 27th of June, 1844, when the prophet Joseph and his brother, Hyrum, were martyred at Carthage jail. The people testified that the day was clear and beautiful, not a cloud in the sky, but immediately following the martyrdom, the sun was shadowed as if it were in an eclipse and even the trees drooped as if in mourning.

When Alanson heard of the martyrdom of the prophet, he and his brother-in-law went to the Carthage Jail. They were all so grief stricken, they wept. The prophet's body had already been taken away, but some of the mob still remained. As Alanson leaned over the well, one of the mob threw a large rock, hitting him in the back, and with an oath, the main said: "We'll put you where old Joe Smith is." Another one of the mob tried to cut the throat of Alanson's brother-in-law, but he stepped back in time so that only the front of his shirt was ripped by the knife.

Later, Alanson, along with the Saints, left Nauvoo and settled in Winter Quarters. Here they prepared to migrate to the great Salt Lake Valley.

Fanny Knight was born the 12th November, 1829 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, the oldest daughter of Nathan Kinsman and Lois Witham Knight.

In about 1834, while living in Ohio, her mother died. Soon after this, as her father sat grieving at the loss of his dear wife, there was a knock on the door. It was two Mormon missionaries who presented the gospel to him. He was impressed, feeling it was just what he needed, therefore was converted. After joining the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he took his little family and went to live with the saints in Kirtland, Ohio. There Nathan helped build the Kirtland Temple. Later they were driven by the violent mob from their home in Kirtland into the state of Missouri. Along with other persecutions, they were at Hauns Mill when the terrible mob attacked there. After the tragedy of Hauns Mill they went to Far West. In 1839 they moved to Nauvoo, Illinois. At this time Nathan was called on a mission to New York. Upon his return the family, along with other saints, traveled to Winter Quarters, settling there waiting to migrate to the Salt Lake Valley. Here it was, in Winter's Quarters that Fanny Knight met Alanson Colby and in 1847 they were married.

In August, 1848, Alanson and Fanny joined the Willard Richard's Company and in a covered wagon crossed the plains on their way to the great Salt Lake Valley.

After traveling only fifteen or twenty miles in a long day, I envision their wagons drawn in circles at night. There was some dancing and rejoicing, but in my mind's eye I also witness them nursing their sick and burying their dead. I can hear the cries of the widows and orphaned children, the sobs of unspeakable loneliness as shallow graves were dug by those who never again would visit those hallowed places. One of which was the grave of Alanson and Fanny's newly born daughter, Elvira, as they sadly placed her in a shallow grave by the side of the road.

As they arrived in the Salt Lake Valley they were heard to say: "Oh, what a wonderful privilege it is to live, to think, to love, to enjoy and to be thankful. Now we can live in this great free land. We may have all the education we desire. We may worship the true and living God and enjoy His spirit in our homes. What a pleasure it is to be among the saints and to enjoy the bounties of creation that has been prepared by God specifically for us. We are truly thankful."

After settling in Salt Lake, they, too, experienced the terrible cricket war, when the 5,100 acres of ground, planted by the saints, was attacked and practically cleared, as these black pests devoured the garden crops and fields of grain. Alanson and Fanny helped to fight them off with water and fire, but to no avail. Then the Seagulls came, ate the pests, gorging and disgorging into the lake, until they were gone. Again the saints dropped to their knees, thanking their Father in Heaven for this great blessing.

Brigham Young advised many of the Saints to go north and settle. Alanson and Fanny responded and settled in Sessions, which is now Bountiful. There it was, in 1851, their second little daughter, Naomi, was born. They tilled the soil and labored to succeed and when they were quite comfortably established, were again advised to move. This time to Provo. They again settled down and established a home and were blessed with the birth of their first son, Hyrum.

1854, another move; this time to Millard County, settling first in Deseret in a very poorly built dugout. Here their son, Jesse, was born, under very unfavorable circumstances. It was in the spring of the year; the clouds started to gather and then came the rain. The downpour was so terrific the frail roof of the dugout was not sufficient to ward off the moisture, falling directly on Fanny and her new little baby boy. This required immediate action to get things back to normal again.

In 1867 the little town of Deseret had to be abandoned, the dam had gone out of the Sevier River. The Alanson Colby family, along with others, moved to Holden. They first settled in a two-room log house and it was there, on the 31st of August, 1869, my mother, Frances Rosina, was born. She had seven brothers and sisters to welcome her-Naomi, Hyrum, Joseph, Mary, Jesse, Louisa and Margaret Ann.

At this time Holden had been settled for about ten years and most people were living in a Fort they had built for protection against the Indians. But as peace was established the people left the Fort and started to build homes. The Alanson Colby family moved out of their log house and he, himself, built a beautiful two-story brick home on Main Street. It was the first of its kind in architecture and was outstanding with its two beautiful stained glass bay windows across the front. This is where the Colby family resided for many years.

Alanson's property was situated on "Wildgoose Creek." But he was advised by the church authorities to give up his claim to this stream. This he did. To that stream was added the "Pioneer Stream" and the two combined furnished all the water for the town of Holden.

Besides farming, Alanson engaged in hunting and trapping and sold the beautiful skins of the Otter and Beaver. He also made ox-yokes and axe-handles for his own use and to sell to others. With his skillful hands he made and furnished all the shingles that were used to build the old Cove Fort.

Beautiful trees were planted in the early 1860s, both for shade and fruit. Alanson planted many apple trees on his property, which later became a source of income. Much of the fruit was dried and also taken by team and wagon to Pioche, Nevada and sold there. After one of these trips Jesse, mother's brother, brought home a sack containing $100.00 he had received from the sale of these apples. After dumping the money on the table, he said: "Mother, will you please use this money to buy you a new stove, you have never had a kitchen stove?" Up until then they had cooked over the open fire and in bake kettles. With tears of joy Fanny accepted this very special gift.

Frances was just a little girl when polygamy was practiced. Her father, Alanson, wanting to follow the prophet's instructions and obey the Celestial Law of plural marriage, put on his best attire, celluloid collar and all and walked all the way from Holden to Fillmore to find another wife.

The anticipation the family felt as they waited for his return, wondering what this new wife would be like, was really exciting. As Alanson arrived home and walked into the house with no bride, he shook his head and said: "I couldn't do it; I just cannot be a polygamist." Even though his wife, Fanny, had accepted her husband's decision to follow the prophet's instructions, she was relieved and somewhat delighted when he walked into their home with this declaration.

One day Fanny invited some of the neighbors to help her quilt. Frances, being about six or seven years old, was sitting on the floor nearby. All of a sudden she squealed with delight. She had found a louse in her hair. This was really exciting because some of her friends at school had lice in their hair and up until now, she didn't have any. Of course Fanny wasn't very thrilled when her little girl started to sing: "Oh, I found a louse e'o, a louse e'o, a louse i'o." This was very embarrassing as she had prided herself in keeping her children free from such things.

When the cold days of fall and winter came, there was fun in the Colby household. Fanny brought from the storehouse, the wool of the spring clip, when the sheep, to the delight of the children had squirmed and twisted under the shears of the father's strong hands. The wool had been washed and the lye used was home-made. This was done by burning grease-wood and pouring water slowly over the ashes-this made a soft soap, which acted as lye in the wash water. Then some of the wool was colored from dyes made of sagebrush. This was all done in the spring of the year and when Fanny brought the wool out, it was ready to be corded. It was fun watching the wool grow into fluffy, long rolls. Then, by the aid of the spinning wheel, it was spun into thread. After spinning came weaving. The loom was set up in the large living room. Fanny sat, queen-like before the loom, throwing the shuttles in and out. Then came the fun days of measuring, cutting and sewing. This was exciting, as now they could have new suits, dresses, etc. With the help of the older children, Fanny sewed all the clothes for her family, also supplementing the family income by sewing for others. As the girls grew older, they, too, were taught how to cord, spin, weave and sew.

In the late fall provision for light was made. The accumulated fat from the household was assembled, boiled in great kettles and purified. Then long strips were dipped into the fat to make candles, or later poured into moulds with the string held in the middle of the mound. Candle making day was a fun time for all the children in the household and they felt great satisfaction as a huge heap of these newly made candles were piled neatly upon a shelf in the store house, to be used for the long winter nights.

The fat that was left over from the candles was made into soap. That also was of interest to the watchful children. But there was no tampering with the hot soap while it was being made. However, the children were allowed to cut the warm soap into cakes and to sometimes mould pieces into figures of men and cows and horses.

From rags Fanny sewed and wove her own carpets. She was also very capable with her knitting needles, knitting many articles for her family and also selling some articles to add to the family income. It is said every family in Holden raised a little plot of sugar cane which was taken to the molasses mill and refined, making it possible for each family to have a barrel of molasses for the years' use. From all this we can know that our ancestors were not idle people. They worked very hard, but were happiest when busy.

At that time there were many Indians in Holden, some of them hostile; but Alanson made friends with them, especially Chief Kanosh and his tribe. He was kind to them, learned their language, and taught them how to trap, never breaking a confidence. Thus Chief Kanosh and his tribe had love and respect for Alanson and his family, often camping near their home.

When Frances was eight years old, her father, Alanson, became very ill. Each day during his illness, the Indians called to see how he was. The day before his death, Chief Kanosh called at the home, asking if he might give Alanson a blessing. After examination and seeing him lying sick and unconscious, the Chief shook his head and said: "No need blessing, pretty soon Colby die." On the 21st of February, 1880, at the age of 66, Alanson Colby, a stalwart pioneer, an ambitious settler of a new country and a kind, loving husband and father to nine children, passed away. He was a good man, was large of stature, medium complexioned with blue eyes and curly hair and had won the love and respect of everyone.

All the young people in Holden joined together to make their fun. At Halloween time they made faces of dough which were hideous and really scary. One time someone in the crowd had a real eerie looking mask. They went to the Colby home and looked in the window. Mother's sister, Annie, seeing this hideous face, let out a scream and fainted.

Their recreation was different than our young people enter into today. They made their own fun. One Christmas some of the young fellows decided to set off an old cannon. They had to stuff gunny sacks down it someway to make it go off. Something went wrong and it exploded. The impact was so great one young man was killed and mother's brother, Hyrum, received a serious leg injury. Needless to say, this was, indeed, a sad Christmas for the whole community.

One day a photographer came to Holden; this didn't happen very often. At this time my grandmother Fanny's health was very poor. Frances, realizing this, insisted she have her picture taken. After a bit of persuasion, Fanny sat in a rocking chair under the shade of the old apple tree and the photographer took her picture. She looks quite ill in this picture, but, in her youth Fanny was a beautiful woman. She was dark complexioned, dark blue eyes, tall and slender and had very nice features.

Soon after this picture was taken, Fanny went to live with her daughter, Louisa, in Vermillion. There, in November, 1893, at the age of sixty-four, she passed away. Her body was taken to Holden and laid to rest by her dear husband. Fanny was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, often relating pleasant experiences she had as a member of the Relief Society. Love, service, sacrifice and labor crowned the life of this good, noble pioneer. She was, indeed, a devoted wife, a dedicated mother and symbol of righteousness. I am truly thankful for my pioneer heritage.

After a long investigation I decided that Elder Tanner assist with his might to build up the cause by tarrying in Kirtland; which decision received the unanimous vote of the council.

180The school of the Elders will continue, and arrangements were also made, according to the revelation of June, 1829, 1 for choosing "the Twelve Apostles" to be especial messengers to bear the Gospel among the nations.

180 - 181On the Sabbath previous to the 14th of February, (February 8th) Brothers Joseph and Brigham Young came to my house after meeting, and sung for me; the Spirit of the Lord was poured out upon us, and I told them I wanted to see those brethren together, who went up to Zion in the camp, the previous summer, for I had a blessing for them; and a meeting was appointed of which the following are the minutes: 2.

181Minutes of the Meetings at which the Twelve Apostles were Chosen, Ordained and Instructed.

181Kirtland, February 14, 1835.-This day, a meeting was called of those who journeyed last season to Zion for the purpose of laying the foundation of its redemption, together with as many other of the brethren and sisters as were disposed to attend.

181 - 182President Joseph Smith, Jun., presiding, read the 15th chapter of John, and said: Let us endeavor to solemnize our minds that we may receive a blessing, by calling on the Lord. After an appropriate and affecting prayer, the brethren who went to Zion [ in Zion's camp ] were requested to take their seats together in a part of the house by themselves.

182President Smith then stated that the meeting had been called, because God had commanded it; and it was made known to him by vision 3 and by the Holy Spirit. He then gave a relation of some of the circumstances attending while journeying to Zion-our trials, sufferings; and said God had not designed all this for nothing, but He had it in remembrance yet; 4 and it was the will of God that those who went Zion, with a determination to lay down their lives, if necessary, should be ordained to the ministry, and go forth to prune the vineyard for the last time, or the coming of the Lord, which was nigh-even fifty-six years should wind up the scene.

182The president also said many things; such as the weak things, even the smallest and weakest among us, shall be powerful and mighty, and great things shall be accomplished by you from this hour; and you shall begin to feel the whisperings of the Spirit of God; and the work of God shall begin to break forth from this time; and you shall be endowed with power from on high.

182President then called up all those who went to Zion, if they were agreed with him in the statement which he had made, to arise; and they all arose and stood upon their feet.

182He then called upon the remainder of the congregation, to know if they also sanctioned the move, and they all raised their right hand.

183The names of those who went to Zion in the camp are as follows: 5
