bullet Archibald GARDNER was born on 2 Sep 1814 in Kilsythe, Stirlingshire, Scotland. They immigrated in 1823 to Ontario, Canada (near Port Dalhousie). Archibald was born on September 2, 1814 in Kilsyth, Scotland. Archibald, brother Robert, and their mother emigrated to eastern Ontario, Canada (near to Port Dalhousie) in 1823, about one year after their father, sister Mary, and brother William. At 17, Archibald built his first mill by following the direction of his father. Six years later Archibald went on his own, moving to southwestern Ontario. In Alvinston, Ontario he built a gristmill in 1837 on the east end of the sixth concession of Brooke township. As was common to the technology of the period, Archibald Gardner's gristmills were "built without nails. Wooden pins and mortises were used instead. All shafts, bearings, cog wheels, etc. were of wood..." Gristmills often formed the economic center of a community, producing flour to bake bread. The gristmill area was on a hill that faces Alvinston. The area was called Gardner's Mill for several years. Archibald also built a saw mill in this area to produce shingles. Under business pressure, mostly based on his joining the LDS Church, Gardner sold his Alvinston area mills at a reduced price. Archibald fled Canada in 1846 for the United States, documenting a miracle escape across an ice flow filled river.

He resided at Winter Quarters Ward No. 11, Winter Quarters (Florence), Douglas, Nebraska, USA in 1846/47. He resided at Salt Lake Valley on 29 Sep 1847 in Salt Lake Valley. Member of John Taylor's First Pioneer Company: In the 2nd Hundred; Edward Hunter, Captain: First Fifty, Joseph Horne, Captain: 3rd ten, Archibald Gardner, Captain. Organized and departed Winter Quarters: 17 Jun 1847 and arrived Salt Lake Valley 29 Sep 1847. He died on 8 Feb 1902 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Archibald Gardner died on February 8, 1902, and is buried in the Salt Lake City Cemetery. A new headstone was dedicated after a 1989 Afton, Wyoming family reunion when 5,000 of his 10,000 descendants attended. He was a Pioneer Settler 2nd company of 1500 people, Archibald Gardner as Captain.. Archibald Gardner
Gardner, who was born in Kilsythe, Scotland, in 1814, immigrated to Canada and then the United States after he joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Gardner was one of the original settlers of Utah in 1847, when the first wave of pioneers arrived in the Salt Lake Valley.

A note received from Gordon Hillman of Sarnia, Ontario on 8 Dec 1998:
The area that the Gardner's were baptized is in my Ward boundries. It used to be called Gardner's Mills and is now known as Alvinston, in Lambton County, not Kent. After the Gardners and others in the area joined the church, they migrated to Nauvoo. They lacked a road to Port Sarnia, (now Sarnia-my hometown), so they cut a road out of the woods from Gardner's Mills to the Old Military Road. To this day that roadway is called, "Nauvoo Road", and in 1946, one hundred years after the migration, a plaque was erected in Alvinston that reads:

In 1846 a section of road was chopped through the forest to intersect the London Road by a group of converts to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints enroute from Gardner's Mills to Nauvoo, Illinois. Among them was Archibald Gardner, the first settleer of Alvinston, who build and operated the first grist mill in Brooke Township. The Nauvoo road legally sanctioned as a Brooke Township highway November 22, 1851, comprises that portion of Highway 79 from road allowance between concessions 8 and 9 to the northern boundary of the township. This stone from Gardner's Mill was contributed by the Brooke and Alvinston Agricultural Society to whom it was presented by Duncan J. McEachren, who provided for its removal from the original mill site on the east bank of the Sydenham River near Alvinston.

The stone and plaque were erected August 16, 1946 by Ontario members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, descendants and relatives of Archibald Gardner, and the Utah Pioneer Trails and Landmark Association.

Came to Canada on the ship "Buckingham" with mother and siblings.

This mill cost $33 to build. He also built a saw mill here as well.

Built a grist mill here.

Archibald was re-united with his family here, after being run out of Canada by disgruntled business men.

10 June 1847 was the date this group of Saints left Winter Quarters for the Salt Lake Valley. They left with the 2nd company of 1500 people under the leadership of John Taylor. They were part of the second 100 wagons under the command of Captain Edward Hunter, and The third ten with Archibald Gardner as Captain.

Member of John Taylor's First Pioneer Company: In the 2nd Hundred; Edward Hunter, Captain: First Fifty, Joseph Horne, Captain: 3rd ten, Archibald Gardner, Captain. Organized and departed Winter Quarters: 17 Jun 1847 and arrived Salt Lake Valley 29 Sep 1847.

Archibald left his Canada home and traveled to Nauvoo, then to Winter Quarters, Nebraska. During the travel from Canada to Winter Quarters, they were named "The Canada Company". They later left for the Salt Lake Valley, where he was a Captain of the company of 10.



In 1849, Archibald Gardner entered into the doctrine of plural marriage. He took two new wives: Abigail and Mary Ann Bradford. He eventually married 8 other women, for a total of 11 wives, fathered 48 children, and saw his family swell to 270 grandchildren. Archibald provided separate homes for his wives. The children were all taught to be industrious at a very young age. Farms were worked by each mother and her young children. In the 1800's, basic needs were food and clothing. The farm provided food for the family, and the Gardner's mills provided clothing, and the needed items for the homes

Gardner, who gained experience building mills in Canada, built his first Utah mills in the Cottonwood area. In the early 1850s, Archibald Gardner and his family began establishing the roots of an industrious hub on the west side of the Jordan River. Logs were hauled by horse teams from the Bingham Canyon to build the first West Jordan flour mill in 1853. A house warming was held in the Mill on December 21, 1853, according to records. The original mill was moved and a larger mill, now on the site, was erected in 1877. The adjacent West Jordan Canal and other irrigation canals were also developed by Archibald Gardner. The first commercial water rights issued in Utah went to Archibald Gardner and his West Jordan Mill. He life is memorialized. Gardner's life is memorialized by a plaque in Alvinston, Archibald's Restaurant, and restored gristmill in West Jordan at Gardner Village, and a monument in Afton Wyoming. Olympic Gold Medalist in wrestling, Rulon Gardner is great great-grandson of Gardner. He was an employee at. As a businessman, millwright and practical engineer, Archibald Gardner built 36 mills, mostly gristmills, 23 in Utah, six in Canada, five in Wyoming, and two in Idaho. He also built hundreds of miles of canals, and many bridges.

Arriving in Utah in 1847, Gardner first built, with his brothers William, and Robert, a mill near Warm Springs. In 1848 the family moved the mill to a site on Mill Creek where the water flow was greater, in time for the fall harvest. There the family claimed to have sawed the first lumber in the Salt Lake Valley.[1] West Jordan business boomed with the building of a gristmill. "Gardner Mill inspired a cluster of small industries, including blacksmith shops, logging and hauling operations, woolen and carding mills, a tannery, several stores, a shoe shop, and later a broom factory".[1] In total Archibald, partnering with many others, built 23 mills in Utah, with several of the mills selling its products to Camp Floyd and Fort Douglas. Archibald, working with other partners, also built miles of canals, tunnels and bridges. Archibald's canals, tunnels and bridges of this period were predominately reimbursed by the Utah territorial legislature. Archibald was also a miner and land developer, partnering and selling several mining properties. The largest was a site in Bingham Canyon, south of West Jordan, Utah, that was found in 1863 while logging with a partner.[3] For several years Archibald was the county recorder, recording mining claims and other deeds in the Bingham Canyon area. From 1878-1882 Gardner served in the Utah Territorial Legislature.


Salt Lake City, Utah
In the past two decades Salt Lake Valley's West Side has come into its own, with booming population and economic growth. Yet few people know moving "over Jordan" is a valley tradition that began with "Archie" Gardner and his gristmill.

Canadians Archibald and Margaret Livingston Gardner were not the first couple to cross the Jordan River and settle along Bingham Creek. But their arrival changed the future of "West Jordan," which then comprised everything west of the Jordan River, ranging from Point of the Mountain to the Great Salt Lake.

Archie had built his first flour mill at age 17 plus two other mills in Canada before joining the Mormons. Arriving in Utah in 1847, he quickly obtained rights to Warm Springs and attempted to install a mill there. The water volume proved insufficient, so he moved his machinery to Mill Creek and later claimed to have sawed the first lumber in the new Mormon community.

But Mill Creek "dried up" (according to his brother Robert), so in 1849 the Gardner brothers dismantled the mill and carried it across the Jordan River to Bingham Creek, where four or five families had already "moved over" and were attempting to farm despite the Oquirrh Range's shortage of year-round water courses.

The Gardners and their crew immediately set to digging a 2.5-mile millrace for their planned sawmill and gristmill. The channel would be enlarged time and again as an important irrigation canal. They had to construct a low dam at approximately 90th South to raise the river to a level that would feed the canal. The millrace alone cost $5,000, and they financed the entire enterprise themselves.

The Gardners built well. Many years later a grandson helped to tear down one of these pioneer mills with grandfather Archie looking on. The young laborers quickly learned that early-type mills were built not with nails but with mortises and pins that tightened under use until there was "hardly a quiver when running." The demolition crew was stymied until Archie, smiling broadly, instructed them to "start at the key corner where the last brace...was located." Wrote the grandson, "When that was found, all was easy."

Gardner Mill inspired a cluster of small industries, including blacksmith shops, logging and hauling operations, woolen and carding mills, a tannery, several stores, a shoe shop, and later a broom factory. Each employed more settlers, entrenching the Gardner Mill as hub of the west side's first industrial center.

As for Archibald and Robert Gardner, their families grew along with their modest business empire. Archie would eventually boast 11 wives and 48 children and build a total of 35 mills in his lifetime. A descendant wrote that Archie's "real pleasure" was to construct the mills, turning them over to others to operate. On occasion he would almost give a mill away so as to raise capital for yet another. For a time Archie sought to make Spanish Fork his primary home, but this ambition ended when Brigham Young called him to be bishop of the West Jordan Ward. Archie served as Jordan's chief church and civic leader for more than three decades.

Poor brother Robert, on the other hand, learned that "settling down to any kind of labor in a 'Mormon' life was very uncertain." He was just beginning to enjoy the fruits of the Jordan mill when he was called on a mission to Canada. He returned, rebuilt the Mill Creek mill, and was once again becoming a man of substance when he was asked to colonize Utah's Dixie. He never thought to reject a church calling. Apparently his frontier experience had taught him, with many other Utahns of his generation, to subordinate individual ambition to the community welfare. He polygamists. Archibald, and brother Robert, became polygamists by the requests of Brigham Young, and the approval of their first wives. The last of Archibald's 11 wives was 'illegal', taking place after the 1862 Morrill Anti-Bigamy Act. Due to an unsettled polygamist status after 1882, Archibald was chased by federal agents enforcing anti-polygamy laws. In 1886 a trip to California to visit brother William was made. On his last trip evading federal agents Archibald visited Mexico, and brother Robert in southern Utah. In 1889 Archibald established a home in Afton, Wyoming (Star Valley). In Star Valley additional mills were built, he lived near and with two wives, Laura Althea Thompson, his fifth, and Mary Larson, his 11th, and near or with several of his 48 children. When Althea died in Afton in 1896, Archibald buried her in the Salt Lake cemetery's Gardner family plot. Archibald stayed on in Utah building another gristmill in Spanish Fork. Archibald Gardner died on February 8, 1902, and is buried in the Salt Lake City Cemetery. A new headstone was dedicated after a 1989 Afton, Wyoming family reunion when 5,000 of his 10,000 descendants attended.
Parents: Robert GARDNER and Margaret CALLENDER.

He was married to Jane PARK on 24 Aug 1852 in Salt Lake City, Utah Territory. He was married to Jane PARK. Archibald Gardner
In 1845, while living in Brooke, Kent, Western District, Canada (near Sarnia, Ontario), later named Alvinston, Gardner followed the example of family members and joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Archibald was forced by a 'legal' mob to flee to Detroit across a partly frozen river based on a false warrant (years later $10,000 was paid to Archibald for the business transaction that had caused the false warrant). The family and others, 100 wagons total, left Canada, meeting up with Archibald in Joliet, Illinois. The Canadian group tried to meet up with Brigham Young in Nauvoo, Illinois. The group stayed in Nauvoo two weeks, and then caught up with the Mormon Exodus at Winter Quarters, Nebraska. In 1859 Gardner became an LDS Bishop of a local ward of about 600 members, a position that he held for 32 years.
