Ship: 1363 tons: 195' x 39' x 19'
Built: 1855 by Willard Hall at Bath, Maine
On 14 February 1856, under the command of Captain William A. Sands, the new square-rigger Caravan cleared the Liverpool harbor with 457 Saints aboard. Among the passengers were two Scandinavian families who had been detained by sickness from sailing on the ship John J. Boyd. One of the five wards on shipboard consisted of Welsh Saints in the charge of Elder John Butler. Presiding over the entire company were Elder Daniel Tyler, historian of the famous Mormon Battalion, and his counselors Elders Edward Bunker, Leonard I. Smith, and William Walker.
Storrns and contrary winds delayed the vessel from getting under full sail until 18 February. However, the passage of about six weeks was described as "prosperous, though stormy at times." One passenger died during the voyage, three babies were born, and one couple was married. On the latter occasion the American flag was unfurled and bells were rung among other festivities. Tragedy also marred the journey. During a storm a sailor slipped from the foreyard and was killed almost instantly. The ship arrived at New York on 27 March.
A fine product of Down East shipwrights, the Caravan operated out of New York in the Dramatic Line. Two years earlier the Caravan's Captain Sands had skippered the ship John Rutledge. William Howland, owner of the Caravan, had been master of the ship Ashburton and the clipper Sea Serpent between 1848 and 1854.

Notes: "THE SHIP CARAVAN. -- On the 14th February we cleared 457 passengers (Saints) on this ship bound for New York, under the presidency of Elders Daniel Tyler, Edward Bunker, Leonard I. Smith, and William Walker. Among the passengers were two families of Scandinavian Saints, who were detained, by sickness, from going on the J. J. Boyd."

"THE SHIP CARAVAN. -- Elder J. Taylor writes from New York, under date of April 2, as follows -- 'The Caravan arrived on the 27th ultimo, all well, no death but one child three years old. Those going forward have already started for their places of destination, the remainder, I think, will get employ.'"

"NINETY-SECOND COMPANY. -- Caravan. on the fourteenth of February, 1856, the ship Caravan cleared from the port of Liverpool, with 457 Saints on board, under the presidency of Elders Daniel Tyler, Edward Bunker, Leonard I. Smith and William Walker. Among the passengers were two families of Scandinavian Saints, who were detained, by sickness from going on the John J. Boyd. On the fifteenth the presidency of the company divided the Saints into five sections, or wards, and Elder John Bulter was placed in charge of the Welsh Saints on board. Owing to storms and contrary winds, the ship did not get under weigh until the eighteenth. After a prosperous voyage, though stormy at times, the Caravan arrived in New York on the twenty-seventy of March, after a passage of forty-one days. During the voyage three children were born, and one passenger died. One couple were united in the bonds of matrimony, on which occasion the American flag was unfurled to the breeze, bells were rung, and all the jollifications made that were possible on shipboard in fair weather. On one occasion, while a storm was raging, a sailor fell head foremost from the foreyard of the vessel and expired almost instantly. Soon after arriving in New York, those who expected to go forward to the outfitting place on the frontiers started for Iowa City, while a number who had not the means wherewith to continue the journey, obtained temporary employment in New York and elsewhere.

Elias Crane, of Salina, has been a settler in Utah since 1857, and has passed through many interesting experiences, especially during the Indian wars of the "sixties," regarding which he relates some thrilling incidents. He is of English origin, born at Dunton, Bassett, in Leicestershire, November 29, 1829. His parents, Joseph and Sarah Bryan Crane, were stocking weavers in humble circumstances, and Elias as a youth followed the same vocation. He disliked it, however, and at the first opportunity forsook it for other labor. He received no schooling save a little at the Protestant Sunday school. At seventeen he was employed as groom by a railroad contractor at Clifton, in Warwickshire, whose business took him to Doncaster in Yorkshire. He was thus occupied for three years. At home again he was converted to the Mormon faith, and on March 15, 1851, walked ten miles to the city of Leicester to be baptized. He followed brick-making in Staffordshire until 1856, when he started for Utah, sailing from Liverpool on the 19th of February, with barely enough money to pay his passage across the ocean.

He landed at New York without a cent, and made his way to Pittston, Pennsylvania, where he worked six months for a brickmaker, prior to going on to St. Louis. There he spent the winter, and reached Florence, Nebraska, the next spring. On June 13, 1857, he married Elizabeth Smith, an English girl from Bedfordshire, whom he had met while on the ocean, Elder A. Milton Musser officiating in the ceremony. "While at Florence," says he, "Apostle Erastus Snow received a letter informing him of the assassination of Parley P. Pratt, in Arkansas, and shortly afterwards he and Apostle John Taylor had to flee for their lives. We were camped at Wood River when they with others came and obtained their outfits for crossing the plains. They left under the protection of a cloud, which encircled them and hid them from view. Through the day parties on their track inquired of our captain concerning their whereabouts."

The same season, under the direction of Emigration Agent Musser, and the command of Captain Israel Evans, Mr. Crane started westward, pulling a handcart over a thousand miles and reaching Salt Lake City on the 9th of September. He settled in the Twentieth Ward; took part in the Echo Canyon campaign; and went in the move to Springville. Thence he removed to Manti, where he dwelt until 1864, and then with about thirty others helped to settle Sevier County, locating at Salina, his present home. Of the Indian depredations in that part during 1865-66, he thus writes:

"On April 10, 1865, the Indians in and near Salina ran off about ninety-five head of stock, and killed Barney Ward, the Indian trader, and James Anderson. The two had been hunting stock in Salina Canyon, when they were met by the redskins, killed, scalped and the bodies stripped of their clothing. I lost in this raid a yoke of cattle and a cow, in value at that time about two hundred dollars. A company of men from Sanpete, under Reddick N. Allred, Nathaniel Beach and Daniel B. Funk, followed on the trail to recover the cattle and chastise the Indians, but were ambushed at the "Alum Beds," about fifteen miles up the canyon, where in a narrow, rocky trail in a deep hollow the Indians had them surrounded. Opening fire from seventy or eighty rifles, they totally demoralized the militiamen, killing two of them and causing a general stampede of the remainder. The fugitives, some without hats, made the greatest speed possible to Salina, where they arrived about four o'clock in the afternoon. The two killed men were William Kearnes, son of Bishop Kearnes of Gunnison, and a young man from Ephraim. The corpses lay as they fell for a week, when Chief Sanpitch interceded with the Indians, and they allowed us to go and get the bodies.

"The next raid was on the 13th of April, 1866, the Indians this time taking all the stock the settlers then owned - one hundred and nineteen head. It subsequently developed that the savages had been watching Salina from the hills for a week, and had wittingly chosen a day when the settlers, busily engaged in building a fort, had turned all their cows and work cattle into the herd. The marauders, in a body of about forty, came from the hills mounted, and as many more came afoot from the hollows east of town. Our sheepherder, a Swedishman from North Bend (Fairview) was shot in the back and killed. Swinging around north of the settlement the thieves captured about nine yoke of cattle belonging to three teams camped there, fitted out and on their way to the Missouri River for emigrants. The drivers narrowly escaped with their lives by running into town. The red-skins took breakfast at the wagons, destroyed everything they could not carry away, including a valuable surveying instrument belonging to Edward Fox of Sanpete, and then continued toward the Sevier River, surrounding our herd which was there feeding, and driving away every hoof of stock belonging to the settlement. Our cattle herder, a young man named Christian Nielsen, seeing the Indians coming, jumped into the river and was never seen or heard of afterwards. His younger brother, Emil Nielsen, twelve or thirteen years old, was shot with arrows and left for dead; but using great caution, he waited where he lay until all was quiet around him, and then waded the river up to his neck and came home about four o'clock in the afternoon more dead than alive. He survived the shock and is alive and well today. The settlers gathered up all the horses available - eight head - and endeavored to save the herd. They had it surrounded once, but being greatly outnumbered by the Indians, and overpowered they gave up the chase in despair. The savages remained in the vicinity until about four p.m., tantalizing and bantering the settlers, inviting them in a mocking manner to come and get their oxen and cows, saying, 'You will want wood in the winter, and your papooses will want milk,' etc. All our resources gone, nothing was left for us but to abandon the settlement and move north, which we did with the aid of our Sanpete brethren. Since its resettlement in 1870 Salina has gradually increased in size, and bids fair to become second to no place in the County."

In Utah Mr. Crane has devoted himself to farming. Among his reminiscences of hardship are the grasshopper visitations of 1867 and 1868. He was then living at Manti. His experience with these pests was doubly trying after being driven from his home by the Indians. In the Church he has held the offices of Teacher, Priest, Elder and High Priest; the last named his office at the present time. He presided for a long while over the High Priests' quorum at Salina, and from 1880 to 1883 was counselor to Bishop Jens Jensen of that place. His secular offices have been few. He has been the local water-master, and at last accounts was president of the Salina Roller Mill Company. His children number nine. He has led a temperate, frugal life, and is highly esteemed among his acquaintances.

Elias W. Crane

A former city councilman, school trustee, justice of the peace, and active church worker, Mr. Crane participated in most of the major activities surrounding the early-day building of Salina.

He was born in Spring ville on February 19, 1859, a son of Elias and Elizabeth Smith Crane. The family moved to Salina in 1865, and was driven to Manti during the Black Hawk wars. Returning in 1874, he had lived here permanently since.

He was active in promotion of the Rocky Ford and Vermillion canal systems; the first grist mill in Salina; the first power plant, and aided in development of the Willow Creek salt mines, which later became the Great Western Salt company.
