Interesting tidbits

I recently read Life of Archibald Gardner: Pioneer, and here are some things that I learned:
- Archibald was born in Kilsyth, Stirlingshire, Scotland on 2 Sep 1814.
- He imigrated to Canada while still a young man with his Mother. His father had gone previously.
- While in Brooke Township, Ontario, he married Margaret Livingston also born in Scotland, and they began their familiy.
- Archibald was baptized into the LDS faith in April of 1945. Due to persecution, he had to leave almost immidiately, heading to Nauvoo, Illinois. Much of the rest of the Gardner/Livington families also joined the LDS church.
- Once in Nauvoo, Archibald had to move his family to the Salt Lake Valley nearly immidiately. He became a "Captain of 10" on the treck westward.
- When Archie and "Peg," (Margaret) got their first view of the Salt Lake Valley, he asked his wife how she liked it. She sat down and cried.
- Archibald made building and running mills his occupation throughout his life, both in Canada and in Utah and Wyoming. He built over 30 mills during the course of his life.
- Plural marriage, or polygamy, was a difficult doctrine for Archibald and Margaret to embrace. Before the two of them came to terms with it, it nearly broke up their marriage.
