  • 1. PIONEER HISTORY OF Mary Ann “Annie” Peacock (1842 – 1915) & Thomas Pilgrim (1832 – 1899) Annie Peacock is sister to my Great Grandmother, Harriet Louisa Peacock History of Thomas Pilgrim from SMITHFIELD UTAH HISTORICAL SOCIETY, PERSONAL HISTORIES Addition information from Pioneer Web Sites. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Mary Ann “Annie” Peacock Born: 19 March 1842 or 12 March 1843 at Two Waters, Watford, Hertfordshire, England Died: 5 Jan. 1915 at Smithfield, Cache Co., Utah Married: 16 July 1864, Smithfield, Cache, Co, Utah Utah Thomas Pilgrim Born: 22 Oct. 1832 at Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England Died: 15 Aug. 1899 at Smithfield, Cache, Co, Utah
  • 2. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watford Watford is a town and district in Hertfordshire, England situated 21 miles northwest of London. The borough lies just to the north of Greater London. Watford remained an agricultural community with some cottage industry for many centuries. The Industrial Revolution brought the Grand Junction Canal in 1798 and the London and Birmingham Railway in 1837, both located here for the same reasons the road had followed centuries before, seeking an easy gradient over the Chiltern Hills. By mid 1800’s Watford was a fairly cosmopolitan town. IMMIGRATION From London, England to New York City Ship: Amazon DEPARTURE: 4 Jun 1863: London, England LDS Immigrants: 895, Church Leader: William Bramall ARRIVAL: 18 Jul 1863, New York, New York  An 1861 painting of Amazon (later renamed Mary Celeste) Mary Ann “Annie” Peacock Immigration Mary Ann “Annie” Peacock is not listed as a passenger aboard “Amazon” or any LDS chartered ship. SPECULATION: I suspect Mary Ann “Annie” Peacock was aboard “Amazon” in 1863; along with her sister, Harriet Louisa Peacock and her future sister-in-law, Susan Pilgrim I don’t know if Annie got employment with the “Amazon” ship’s crew, was missed (895 listed LDS passengers) when the passengers roll was being recorded, or was just hidden among the passengers, but I suspect she was aboard. Mary Ann “Annie” shows up with other members from the Amazon traveling with the Horton D. Haight Company (1863) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- On Tue, 12/2/08, Church.History.Library@ldschurch.org wrote: Date: Tuesday, December 2, 2008 Dear Joe, I am certain that the Annie Peacock in the 1863 Horton D. Haight Company is yours. The financial records that are noted in connection with her are from Cache Valley, and I noted that your Annie died in Smithfield. Many thanks for helping us identify her! Sister W., Church History Library, W.@ldschurch.org -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Horton D.

March 3, 1863 - The U.S. Congress enacts a draft, affecting male citizens aged 20 to 45, but also exempts those who pay $300 or provide a substitute. "The blood of a poor man is as precious as that of the wealthy," poor Northerners complain. June 1863 Robert E. Lee, with 75,000 Confederates,invaded Pennsylvania June 28, 1863 - President Lincoln appoints Gen. George G. Meade as commander of the Army of the Potomac, replacing Hooker. Meade is the 5th man to command the Army in less than a year. Gettysburg July 1-3, 1863 - Battle of Gettysburg in Pennsylvania. The tide of war turns against the South as the Confederates are defeated at Gettysburg. July 4, 1863 - Vicksburg, the last Confederate stronghold on the Mississippi River, surrenders to Gen. Grant and the Army of the West after a six week siege. With the Union now in control of the Mississippi, the Confederacy is effectively split in two, cut off from its western allies. July 13-16, 1863 - Anti-draft riots in New York City include arson and the murder of blacks by poor immigrant whites. At least 120 persons, including children, are killed and $2 million in damage caused, until Union soldiers returning from Gettysburg restore order. July 18, 1863 - 'Negro troops' of the 54th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment under Col. Robert G. Shaw assault fortified Rebels at Fort Wagner, South Carolina. Col. Shaw and half of the 600 men in the regiment are killed. August 10, 1863 - The president meets with abolitionist Frederick Douglass who pushes for full equality for Union 'Negro troops.'

Haight Company (1863) Departure: Florence, Nebraska; 8-9 August 1863; Arrival in Salt Lake Valley: 4 October 1863 Richardson, William, Autobiography [ca. 1870s]-1887, 18-20 We had some trouble when we came to the Green River. It had been telegraphed to Fort Douglas in Salt Lake City that a wagon train was there with two or three wagon loads of powder. They were afraid that if the powder got into Salt Lake City the Mormons would kill all the Gentiles in Camp Douglas. The soldiers there at Green River were ordered to take the powder from our wagon train. Some of them came along at noon when we were camped. But our Captain, Isaac C. Haight, took them into his tent and served them dinner, while talking to them 2 or 3 hours. While they were in the tent, the wagon with the powder crossed over the river and up into the mountains, unloaded the powder into sacks and then came back. That night we all crossed over the river and camped. The next day a company of soldiers came along and stopped us on the road. They searched all the train but did not find the load of powder so they told us to go on. The wagon train went on for a few miles and then camped for the night. The feed was good and Captain Haight wanted the cattle to get filled up before we went into the city. We had to go over the little mountain and down Emigration Canyon, as the road was washed out in Parley's Canyon. We camped that night before we started up the mountain, so we could go up in the morning when it was cool. We got up all right, but some had to be helped. When we were out of the canyon and started down the bench, we looked down on the City and the lake and thought the sight was great. We felt much joy, for we had hoped and had prayed for it over fourteen years, and now it was in sight at last.
  • 4. On October 4th 1863 we finally reached Salt Lake City. It had been eight weeks from the time we left Florence till we reached the city. After arriving at SLC Annie Peacock (and sister Harriet Louisa Peacock and friend Susan Pilgrim) moved on to Smithfield, Utah.

Haight ARRIVAL: 5 Apr 1852, Port of Arrival: New Orleans, Louisiana Travel from New Orleans to Council Bluff – 5 Apr 1852 to 1 Jun 1852 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Notes: "THE ELLEN MARIA cleared on the seventh, but owing to adverse winds did not put to sea until the tenth, of February. Her entire complement was made up of the Saints' company, and consisted of three hundred and sixty-nine souls, one of which was born during the detention; both mother and child were remarkably comfortable at the date of departure. <MS, 14:5 (March 1, 1852), p.72> "By letter from Elder Isaac C. Haight, we learn that the Ellen Maria arrived at New Orleans on the 7th of April, after a very pleasant and prosperous voyage. There were three births, four marriages, and one death, (Sister Rolph, aged 89 years, of diarrhea,) during the voyage. Captain Whitmore is spoken of as a very kindhearted and considerate man." <MS, 14:13 (May 22, 1852), p.202> "FIFTY-SEVENTH COMPANY. -- Ellen Maria, 369 souls. The ship Ellen Maria which the year previous had brought a company of Saints safely across the Atlantic, was again chartered by the presidency at Liverpool to bring another company to New Orleans; and on the seventh of February, 1852, she cleared, but owing to adverse winds, did not put to sea until the tenth of February. Her entire complement was made up of Saints, numbering three hundred and sixty-nine souls; one of which was born during the detention. (Both mother and child were remarkably comfortable at the date of departure.) Among those who sailed with this company were a number of prominent Americans and native elders who had performed efficient missionary work in the British Isles, such as James D. Ross, Gland Rodger, Haden W. Church, J. W. Johnson, Henry Evans and Louis Robbins; these brethren had all acted as presidents of the conferences. Elder Isaac C. Haight, an American elder, was an appointed president of the company, which included one hundred and eighty-two P.E.F. [Perpetual Emigration Fund] emigrants. After a very pleasant and prosperous voyage, the Ellen Maria arrived at New Orleans on the seventh of April., 1852. There were three births, four marriages and one death during the voyage. The person who died was a Sister Rolph, aged eighty nine years. Captain Whitmore, as a very kind and considerate man, treated the emigrants with all due respect and consideration.
  • 6. From New Orleans the journey was continued by a river steamer to St. Louis, Missouri, where the company was met by Abraham O. Smoot, who acted as agent for the P. E. Fund Company, and who purchased supplies for the Saints who emigrated to Utah through the agency of that company, to make the overland journey with. After co-operating with Elder Smoot in this connection according to instructions, Elder Issac C. Haight, who had led the company to St. Louis, returned to England, and Elder Smoot conducted the emigrants to Council Bluffs, and subsequently lead the first British company of P. E. Fund emigrants across the plains, consisting of those who had crossed the Atlantic in both the Kennebec and Ellen Maria." http://www.lds.org/churchhistory/library/pioneercompany/1,15797,4017-1-12,00.html Abraham O. Smoot Company (1852) DEPARTURE: Council Bluff, Nebeaska, 1 June 1852 ARRIVAL in Salt Lake Valley: 3 September 1852 Company Information: About 250 individuals and 33 wagons were in the company when it began its journey from Kansas City, Missouri. This is the first company to cross by Perpetual Emigrating Fund. Of the 250 traveling in the A.O, Smoot Company, 225 are listed and Thomas Pilgrim is not show. However, it is assumed he was with the Company. The following reference shows him in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1852. Pilgrim, Thomas, 1852, Salt Lake City 1st Ward; Utah Bishops' Report microfiche 6051208 He is not shown in any later companies. I do not find another reference for him until 1860. He (Thomas Pilgrim) was given a blessing by John Young on February 16, 1860 at Lehi, Utah. I am happy to inform you that I have thus far prosecuted my journey and after the days of our afflictions having passed by, I find my camp, this evening in blooming health and prosperity, with their faces set Zionwards like a flint, and feel as a general thing to make any sacrifice to farther prosecute their journey Zionwards. During our stay at Kansas, (which was some 2 weeks longer than I anticipated when I arrived there from being disappointed in the dates of the reception of my cattle) the cholera visited that place and found its way 7 miles west to our encampment, to which 11 of the emigration company fell a prey & 7 of Inflammation, Measles, & 1 drowned. I have in my camp about 226 Souls, sent out by the Emigration Fund, and 26 who are on their own resources. We left Kansas encampment on the 1st day of June and have slowly, but prosperously made our way thus far, through the well directed train of his kind providence, who guides the steps of all his saints. I have in my train, 33 wagons, 24 of which belong to the emigration fund also 55 yoke of cattle belonging to the fund & 50 cows. My waggons are good and my cattle the finest, I have ever bought in Missouri, & I think if the Passengers continue to do as good a portion of foot service as they have hitherto done, that we shall make a quick and prosperous journey, and my cattle in good condition when they get in. You will please do me the kindness to remember me and my sacred charge, in your prayers to the God of Joseph, that all things may happen well to Israel and be assured that with sentiments of high esteem I am ever Your Brother and fellow servant in the Kingdom of God A.O.

  • 7. Thomas Pilgrim Biography Thomas Pilgrim was born October 22, 1832 in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England (approx 50 miles North of London). The eighth son of Samuel and Elizabeth (Betsy) Coot Pilgrim. He joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints as a young man, and made the trip to Utah with a company of saints. Thomas Pilgrim made his home in Smithfield, Cache Co, Utah and is listed as one of the parties forming the west side of the original fort, formed in Smithfield during the winter of 1860-61. His log house was one of 68 homes built in the fort line. Thomas met a young lady, Annie Peacock, who also had come from England for her faith. Annie was born 12 March 1843 in Two Waters Watford, Hertsfordshire, England the daughter of William and Phillis Hyom Peacock. They were married July 16, 1864, at the Endowment House in Salt Lake City, Utah. Thomas and Annie were the parents of eleven children (SEE NOTE at end); all of them grew to maturity. They each were given an average amount of education for the time. They, all but one, married, and all but two had families. Thomas Pilgrim was a man of small stature. He was a farmer in the early days of Smithfield. He was a devoted man to his family and the church. He and his family were good citizens of the community. On the 17th of February 1874, the day their son Thomas Joseph was born, their house from the west side of the fort, was moved to their property about one-half block off the fort line. This was done with the mother and baby in bed inside the house. This was necessary because the railroad had bought a right-of-way through Smithfield, and it went directly through the spot where the house stood. A few years later the family built a two story house on the same property. This home stayed in the family until the death of the parents. Thomas Pilgrim and his wife, Annie, took the infant son of their daughter, Clara, who died when the baby was small. He lived with them until he was sixteen, at which time his grandmother, Annie. died. Thomas Pilgrim died August 15, 1899. He was buried in the family plot in the Smithfield cemetery. His wife, Annie, died January 5, 1915. She is also buried in the same plot in the cemetery at Smithfield, Utah.
