HIST: Kimball, Stanley B., Ph.D. HISTORIC RECOURCE STUDY. "Mormon Pioneer National Historic Trail". U.S. Dept of the Interior. National Park Service. p. 39. MOUNT PISGAH ESTABLISHED. When the camp moved out of Garden Grove on 12 May, enough families were left behind to maintain the community and to help later Nauvoo exiles, of which there would be thousands. Six days and abouot 35 miles later, they established another permanent camp and resting place. This site, on the middle fork (Twelve- Mile Creek) of the Grand River and on Potawatomi Indian land, was selected and named Mount Pisgah (REC, see Historic Site 8 and Appendix D., Illustration 11) by Parley P. Pratt, who, when he first saw it rising above the Iowa prairie, was reminded of the biblical Pisgah (Deuteronomy 3:27), where Moses viewed the Promised Land. There they built cabins and planted several thousand acres of rich bottomland lying to the west of the rise with peas, cucumbers, beans, corn, buckwheat, potatoes, pumpkins, and squash. Mount Pisgah was maintained as a camp until at least 1852. At its height it had over 2,000 inhabitants, most staying until their future homes in what is now Utah were more certain. [information kosk at Mount Pisgah] At Mount Pisgah, after over two and a half months of Iowa mud and other assorted troubles, Mormon leaders felt the need for divine guidance, so they withdrew to the isolation of the limitless prairie, clothed themselves in temple robes, formed a prayer circle, and invoked God for the good of the people and the success of the venture. All along the trek such special group prayers were held. About 35 miles farther west they deepened some trail ruts still visible today -- they only good ruts this author has found in Iowa. Appendix D, Illustration 11 is Peter Hansen drawing of Mt. Pisgah, Iowa. 1846.

96. Samuel DESPAIGNE Dispain FAMILY: WHITAKER FAMILY RECORDS. WW

BRUCE DESPAIN: "There is a very slight possibility that Samuel may have taken to the sea for a season, for on 20 Jun 1718 a certain 'Samuel Antoine d'Espaigne' was issued a certificate of membership by the French (Walloone) Reformed Church in Amsterdam prior to his leaving for the Dutch colony of Caracao. [Waals Gemeente, Amsterdam, Netherlands, ATTESTATIONS, v. 50d [FHL 113409] This man was received back in Amsterdam on 6 Aug 1719. [Waals Gemeente, Amsterdam, Netherlands, MEMBERS RECEIVED, v. 47c [FHL 113406]. The name makes it seem much more likely that the man was one and the same as a certain 'Antoine espanhiur' who had been received in Amsterdam from Koenigsberg on 27 Feb 1718. [idem] In any event there was a 'Samuel despayne' who was issued a certificate on 6 Feb 1720 prior to leaving for London [Waals Gemeente, Amsterdam, Netherlands, ATTESTATIONS, v. 50d [FHL 113409] and it was in London where our Samuel married 6 Jun 1720. [A. W. C. Hallen, ed., THE REGISTERS OF ST. BOTOLPH, BISHOPSGATE, LONDON, (Edinburgh, 1889), v. 1, p. 539.] If we were to accept some variation of the seafaring hypothesis, we might think to understand better Samuel's motivation for taking part in the new American adventure."
