For fifteen years he had charge of the tithing stock of the Church and during the Indian wars had charge of the commissary department. He died in Salt Lake City Aug. 4, 1871, survived by a large family.

Briant Stringham - Stockman

Briant Stringham, son of George and Polly Hendricksen was born March 28, 1823 at Coalville, Broome county, New York. The following beautiful letter was written by him to his family whom he had left in Winter Quarters when he was chosen to accompany the pioneer vanguard to Utah:

Separated as we are by mountains, rivers, hills, deserts of sand, and many wandering tribes of Indians, yet my thoughts reach you by day and my dreams by night, and my prayer is that you may be blessed and prospered and enjoy life and health and that you may be able to come to this land the ensuing year and rejoice with the people of God in this beautiful valley, for it is truly a lovely place, and I believe the garden spot of the world.

I still live with Brother Lorenzo Young and expect to until you come. I am working and preparing timber for your house, and hope, by the time you get here, to have it ready for you. I am in hopes of raising an abundance of grain for you; at least I have as fair prospects as anyone. I shall try my best. At the same time I want you to do something for me, for by the time you get here I shall be literally naked, and bareheaded, without shoes or clothing. I hope therefore you will do all in your power whilst I am doing for you. If Jerry is there tell him to bring me a good wife, if he can. If Jed has any horses have him not fetch them, but trade them for steers and heifers, for they are the best team you can have to come with, and when you get here you can get horses cheap enough. I want you to bring a good harness and iron for a plough or two for such things cannot be got here at any price. Bring all the cattle you can and two pigs if possible, sugar, guns, cloth, eather, nails, glass, spices and such things for they cannot be got here. I hope to see you all in the Valley about the last of July.

The thought of seeing my brothers, sisters, and friends, together with my aged father and dear mother, to think of you all settled in your inheritance in this goodly land, fills my soul with joy that I cannot express with a pen. May that happy day soon arrive when we shall see each other's smiles and rejoice together with none to molest or make afraid. We can build here and inhabit, plant vineyards and eat the fruit thereof, live and enjoy health and strength and be blessed together with the servants of God to teach us the ways and rules, wisdom and power of the Almighty; that we may walk in his paths and enjoy his blessings throughout the remaining days of our lives and our days be lengthened out to a good old age, that we may do much good all the days of our lives and prove ourselves wise stewards in the days of our probation; that we may come to the grave in peace, having fought the good fight so that in the morning of the resurrection, we can claim the promises that are promised to the faithful, willing and obedient servants of God.

I want you to start as early as possible and come in Brigham's company if you can and then you will be pretty apt to be safe, and I will try and meet you somewhere this side of Fort Bridger in the mountains. I cannot come a great way for I have to take care of my crops. You must fetch provisions enough to last you until you get here. It will take about one hundred and fifty pounds of flour to each one of you and meat enough to go with it. Try to get a small piece of a porker for me. It would taste excellent. May the Lord bless you in all your undertakings that are lawful to get you to this place which is the desire and prayer of your son.

After Briant Stringham's arrival in the valley he helped to plant trees, build houses and otherwise develop the small community. For fifteen years he had charge of the tithing stock of the Latter-day Saint Church, a great part of the time on Antelope Island. He died in Salt Lake City August 4, 1871 at the age of forty eight years. At the funeral it was suggested that Brigham Young be the speaker. With tears running down his cheeks he said he could not do it for Briant was far too near and dear to him to be able to say anything.

WAYNE STAKE OF ZION consists of the Latter-day Saints residing in Wayne County, Utah, with headquarters at Loa, the county seat, where there is a fine tabernacle in which stake conferences and other large meetings are held, and where there is also a stake house for the accommodation of the stake presidency and the High Council. Most of the population are Latter-day Saint farmers and stock-raisers. The west part of the stake includes the well known Fremont Valley, originally called Rabbit Valley, the elevation of which is approximately 7,500 feet above sea level. The settlements further east along the Fremont River have the benefit of a milder climate, the altitude being lower. Rabbit Valley, or Fremont Valley, in which Loa is centrally located, is one of the best watered valleys in Utah, having sufficient water to irrigate all the arable lands in the valley by taking advantage of reservoirs. Fremont Valley is about 16 miles long, tapering off to a canyon on the east, and at places it widens out to about five miles. All kinds of hardier cereals and fruits are raised in the valley, and most of the irrigation is dependent upon the Fremont River, Spring Creek and Road Creek. The Wayne Stake of Zion consists of six organized wards, namely, Fremont, Loa, Lyman, Teasdale, Thurber and Torrey. The famous Fish Lake, situated in the tops of the mountains, is about ten miles northwest of Loa.

When Rabbit Valley first became known to the pioneers of Utah, the Indians were roaming around Fish Lake and often made their camps in Fremont Valley, as Fish Lake and the Fremont River abounded in fish. The mountains and valleys in that part of Utah afforded plenty of game for the Red men. During the Black Hawk Indian War Gen. Warren Snow had an engagement with the Indians at the foothills near Red Lake, about three miles southwest of Thurber, and Gen. William B. Pace, who soon afterwards passed through the valley with a number of men, noticed that rabbits were very plentiful in the east side of the valley, and this fact suggested the name which the valley bore for many years. In June, 1874, Andrew J. Allred of Spring City, and other explorers looking for homes, passed through Rabbit Valley. These men took up land claims and explored the whole country between Fish Lake and that part of the country now occupied by the settlement of Teasdale. Based upon the reports of these men, Fremont Valley was settled by Latter-day Saints in 1875 by former residents of Payson, Utah County, and others, who brought in herds of cattle. Hugh Jefferson McClellan was the only white man who spent the winter of 1875 1876 in the valley, living in a house which he built on the east side of the creek, about 1 1/2 miles southeast of the present Lea townsite. This was the first house erected in that part of Rabbit Valley. The same year the Richfield United Order herders built a cabin southeast of where Thurber now stands. The Richfield Co-op herd consisted of horses, sheep and cattle. In May, 1876, the first actual settlement of Fremont Valley took place, when Andrew J. Allred brought his family into the valley. Others followed the same year and in 1877.

The first Latter-day Saint meeting in the valley was held Dec. 16, 1877. Bishop Joseph A. Wright of the Grass Valley Ward (Sevier Co.) held jurisdiction over the first L. D. S. settlers in Rabbit Valley, and Jeremiah Stringham was appointed presiding Elder there. During the absence of Brother Stringham, Franklin W. Young took temporary charge of the branch. As the inhabitants in Rabbit Valley gradually grew, a townsite was surveyed July 29, 1878, consisting of eight blocks with 4 lots in each, which was enlarged in 1880. At a quarterly conference of the Sevier Stake held at Richfield Nov. 24, 1878, George S. Rust of Grass Valley was chosen as Bishop in Rabbit Valley, the ward to be known as the Fremont Ward. It included all the settlers in the valley who had formerly belonged to the Grass Valley Ward. As Brother Rust never moved into the valley, Elias H. Blackburn of Minersville, Beaver Co.,Utah, was chosen as Bishop of the Fremont Ward, and was sustained in that capacity by the people May 26, 1880. Under his administration the population grew in Fremont Valley, and in June, 1882, the Fremont Ward was divided, the east part of the same being organized as the Thurber Ward. In 1883 Blue Valley and Hanksville were settled by Latter-day Saints; later in 1883 Kanesville was founded, and in 1885 East Loa (now Lyman) came into existence. The saints on the townsite of Fremont were organized as the Spencer Branch in February, 1886, which branch was organized as a regular bishop s ward named Fremont Ward June 14, 1887. At a special conference held at Loa, Sept. 28, 1893, the saints residing in Fremont Valley were separated from the Sevier Stake of Zion and organized into a new stake named the Wayne Stake of Zion, with Willis E. Robison as president. When first organized, the stake consisted of six wards, namely, Loa, Fremont, Kanesville, Teasdale, Thurber and Blue Valley. Pres. Robison presided until 1906, when he was succeeded by Gearson S. Bastian, who in 1910 was succeeded by Joseph Eckersley, who in 1924 was succeeded by William H. Callahan, who in 1926 was succeeded by William F. Webster, who presided Dec. 31, 1930. Other stake officers have acted as follows: First counselors in the stake presidency: Hans M. Hansen, 1893-1903; Gearson S. Bastian, 1903-1906; Joseph Eckersley, 1906-1910; John R. Stewart, 1910-1916; George W. Okerlund, 1916-1924; William F. Webster, 1924-1926, and George W. Okerlund (serving a second term), 1926-1930. Second counselors: Gearson S. Bastian, 1893-1903; Joseph Eckersley, 1903-1906; John R. Stewart, 1906-1910; Benjamin F. Brown, 1910-1912; Moroni Lazenby, 1912-1916; Walter E. Hanks, 1916-1924, and George T. Eckersley, 1924-1930. Stake clerks: Joseph Eckersley, 1893-1901; Benjamin F. Brown, 1901-1903; Joseph Eckersley (serving a second term), 1903-1904; John T. Lazenby, 1904-1906; Joseph Eckersley (serving a third term), 1906-1911; Walter E. Stewart, 1911-1912; George T. Eckersley, 1912-1918; Devere Child, 1918-1919, and George T. Eckersley (serving a second term), 1919-1930. The membership of the Wayne Stake Dec. 31, 1930, was 1,971, including 444 children.


The following information was taken from the history of Briant Burgess:

Grandfather Joseph Colby told me he was born in Fillmore, and grew up in Holden, Utah. He said he played and wrestled with many of the Indian kids who lived there. Holden was an Indian Reservation for the Goshute Indians. He got his first six years of school there. The remainder of his education came through self study and practical experiences. Grandfather Colby was a smart and shrewd businessman. As a young man he accumulated a great deal of wealth. He owened several farms and ranches, three sheep herds, and a drug store.

Grandfather Colby met Grandmother Mary Ellen Stringham in Holden. They were married September 16, 1877. Grandmother's parents were Jeremiah and Sarah A. Bova Stringham. Jeremiah Stringham's father was George Stringham. George Stringham and his family joined the Mormon Church in Palmyra, New York in 1830, the year Joseph Smith organized it, and there were just 30 members. When George Stringham joined the church, he had four children, Sabra, 9 years old; Briant, 7; Jeremiah, 5, who later became Grandmother Colby's father; and Elmeda, 1 year old.

George Stringham and his family followed Joseph Smith and his members to Kirtland, Ohio. There they built a temple in which they could fully practice their religion.

THURBER WARD

Andrew Jenson, Encyclopedic History of the Church, p.874

THURBER WARD, Wayne Stake, Wayne Co., Utah, consists of the Latter-day Saints residing in the lower end of Fremont Valley. It includes the village of Thurber, which is situated about two miles north of the Fremont River, and about two miles from the east end of the Fremont Valley, or from Heath’s millsite, near the base of the Mountains on the north, and four miles from the mountains on the east. Thurber is nine miles by road southeast of Loa, the headquarters of the Wayne Stake of Zion, six miles northwest of Teasdale, 62 miles southeast of Richfield, Sevier Co., Utah, and 235 miles by nearest road southeast of Salt Lake City. Most of the people reside on the townsite in the winter, while a number of them spend the summer months on farms and ranches. The farming land belonging to the Thurber settlement lies on both sides of the Fremont River, from which stream and from Pine Creek water is obtained for irrigation purposes.

Thurber was first settled in the spring of 1879 by Jeremiah Stringam and family, and others, who at once commenced digging a water ditch, tapping Fremont River about three miles northwest of the present townsite. Geo. Brinkerhoff built the first house at Thurber. The first presiding Elder of the new settlement was Jeremiah Stringam, who formerly had presided over the whole valley. More settlers arrived in 1880 and in 1881 a small log school house was erected. In 1880, when Elias H. Blackburn was made Bishop of the Fremont Valley Ward, Jorgen Jørgensen was appointed to preside over the Branch at Thurber. He acted in that capacity until June, 1882, when the Thurber Branch was organized as the Thurber Ward, with George Brinkerhoff as Bishop. He was succeeded in 1886 by Theodore Brandley, who in 1887 was succeeded by William Meeks, who in 1894 was succeeded by Mathew W. Mansfield, who in 1900 was succeeded by James Grant, who in 1901 was succeeded by George W. Stringham, who in 1906 was succeeded by George Brinkerhoff, who in 1910 was succeeded by George W. Sidwell, who in 1912 was succeeded by R. Arthur Meeks, who in 1924 was succeeded by George C. Brinkerhoff, who in 1928 was succeeded by George M. Hunt, who presided Dec. 31, 1930. On that date the Thurber Ward had 302 members, including 61 children. The total population of the Thurber (Bicknell) Precinct was 311 in 1930.
