  • 2. John Hooper Gabbott’s ancestors were among the first pioneers to settle Salt Lake Valley. Jack Gabbott’s Great Grandparents, Edward Gabbott & Sarah Rigby join the LDS Church during Heber C. Kimball’s apostolic mission of 1837-38 and were baptized by Heber C. Kimball. SEE Missions of the Twelve to the British Isles They, along with 235 new LDS members left Liverpool, England 7 February 1841 aboard the sailing ship Sheffield and arrive in new Orleans, Louisiana 30 March 1841. From there they travel up the Mississippi River aboard riverboats and landed at Nauvoo, Illinois 18 April 1841. In Nauvoo their two daughters, Mary & Susan died and son John (Jack Gabbott’s Grandfather) was born during 1842 and daughter Sarah Ann was born during 1845. Joseph Smith was murdered, by a mob, at Carthage jail on 27 June 1844. Brigham Young abandoned Nauvoo during 1846 leading 1,600 LDS member, including Edward Gabbott’s family, across the frozen Mississippi River to temporary refuge at Sugar Grove (Creek), Iowa then on Winter Quarters, Nebraska. On the journey across Iowa, wife/mother, Sarah, was attempting to get into the wagon and fell backwards frightening the team and she was run over and died. This was on October 30, 1846 at a place called Little Pigeon Creek, Iowa near the Missouri River, about 40 Miles from Winter Quarters, Neb. They remained in camps one year. In the spring of 1848 the family (Father Edward, son John (Jack Gabbott’s Grandfather) and daughter Sarah Ann,) moved with an unidentified wagon company to Salt Lake City Utah. Family reports say they traveled with Heber C. Kimball’s Company to Salt Lake City arriving on September 22, 1848 Jack Gabbott’s Great Grandparents (William Twiggs & Mary Reed) lived at Pembrokeshire, Wales, U.K. and became LDS members during 1849. William worked in the flourmills and due to his continual inhaling of the fine flour dust he died from congestion of the lungs on 15 January 1854. Later that year Wife Mary, with her six children, and her sister and brother-in-law John and Martha (Reed) Twiggs, decided to immigrate to Salt Lake City, Utah. They went to Liverpool, England and set sail on 24 November 1854 aboard the Clara Wheeler. These two families were among the 422 passengers heading for their Salt Lake City, Utah destination. They arrive at New Orleans, Louisiana 12 January 1855 and then traveled by riverboat to St. Louis, Missouri arriving 22 January 1855. After a period of time the LDS members, including the Twiggs, moved across Missouri to Mormon Grove near Atchison, Kansas. During their stay at Mormon Grove a large epidemic of Cholera swept the camp and Mary Reed Twiggs along with four of her children died.

  • 14. Your tombstone stands neglected and alone. The name and date are chiseled out on polished, marbled stone. It reaches out to all who care. It is too late to mourn. You did not know that I exist. You died and I was born. Yet each of us are cells of you in flesh, in blood, in bone. Our heart contracts and beats a pulse entirely not our own. Dear Ancestor, the place you filled those many years ago. Spreads out among the ones you left who would have loved you so. I wonder as you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew That someday I would find this spot and come to visit you.
