William Daley & Mary Ann Graham | John Daly & Janet Ross

Robert Waugh and Elizabeth Wilson (born about 1785, in Holmhead, Kirkmichael, Dumfriesshire) had a son named George born June 16, 1807, in Lochmaben, but did not marry (see Robert Waugh & Elizabeth Wilson). Elizabeth "Mary" Wilson married Cornelius Daley (born c 1765 in Ireland, and of the Parish of St. Mungo) on  Jan 13, 1809 in Lochmaben. They had two children: William Daley (b. Sept 9, 1809, in St. Mungo, d. Nov 27, 1882, although William may be the son of Margaret Wightman) and John Daley (b. July 4, 1810, d. Dec 14, 1884, in Lochmaben). George Waugh was probably raised in the Daley household in Hightae, Lochmaben.

1844 ..........

Sometime before 1844, William and Mary Ann Daley emigrated from Scotland to the USA.

The Prophet Joseph Smith
The Prophet Joseph Smith

"I am going like a lamb to the slaughter, but I am calm as a summer's morning. I have a conscience void of offense toward God and toward all men. If they take my life, I shall die an innocent man, and my blood shall cry from the ground for vengeance, and it shall be said of me, 'He was murdered in cold blood.'" - Joseph Smith shortly before his death on June 27, 1844

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints or the Mormon Church was founded by a young man named Joseph Smith, Jr. in April 1830. Church members were severely persecuted and driven from New York, Ohio, Missouri, and ultimately Illinois. After Joseph Smith's murder in 1844, the Latter Day Saints or Mormons abandoned their homes in Nauvoo, Illinois in fear that mobs would soon come to destroy them.

The Mormons fled from Nauvoo on February 4, 1846 for fear of attack. The journey was bitter cold and miserable. It took them approximately four months to cross Iowa, due to severe weather and axle-deep mud. Ultimately, they crossed the Missouri River and settled an area on the Nebraska side, which they called Winter Quarters. Some of the pioneers stayed there for the winter of 1846, while others stopped at temporary camps outside of Winter Quarters. By the spring of 1847, almost 400 lives had been lost, largely due to inadequate provisions and exposure.

- from The Mormon Trail

William and Mary's son Matthew may have been born in Nauvoo, Illinois on July 1, 1844 (Joseph Smith was murdered on June 27, 1844).

In all of Church history, perhaps nothing symbolizes the pragmatic nature of Latter-day Saint religion as does the city of Nauvoo. On the very hem of the western frontier, the Latter-day Saints drained the swamps, wrote an ambitious city charter, established a university, mounted a city militia, and built a temple.

To Nauvoo and its vicinity came the great majority of all Latter-day Saint converts for the next seven years, swelling the population to about 20,000 by 1846. At its height it rivaled Chicago as the largest city in the state. A vibrant, culturally eclectic place, it came to be known as "Nauvoo, the Beautiful."

Painting of the Exodus from Nauvoo
Painting of the Exodus from Nauvoo

On 4 February 1846, in the heart of a Midwestern winter so cold and bitter the Mississippi River froze over, the Latter-day Saints were driven from their homes and lands (in Nauvoo) down a street which came to be known as the "Street of Tears" and into the unknown mystery of the western frontier... "For Brigham Young and his associates, the 1846 exodus from Nauvoo, far from being a disaster imposed by enemies, was foretold and foreordained—a key to understanding LDS history and a necessary prelude for greater things to come. From a later perspective too, scholars of the Mormon experience have come to see the exodus and colonization of the Great Basin as the single most important influence in molding the Latter-day Saints into a distinctive people". (Reed C. Durham Jr., "Westward Migration, Planning and Prophecy," in Daniel H. Ludlow, ed., Encyclopedia of Mormonism, 5 vols. [1992], 4:1563). - from Nauvoo, Illinois, 1839-1846

"In every part of the city scenes of destitution, misery and woe met the eye. Families were hurrying away from their homes, without a shelter, — without means of conveyance, — without tents, money, or a day's provision, with as much of their household stuff as they could carry in their hands. Sick men and women were carried upon their beds — weary mothers, with helpless babes dying in their arms, hurried away — all fleeing, they scarcely knew or cared whither, so it was from their enemies, whom they feared more than the waves of the Mississippi, or the heat, and hunger and lingering life and dreaded death of the prairies on which they were about to be cast. The ferry boats were crowded, and the river bank was lined with anxious fugitives, sadly awaiting their turn to pass over and take up their solitary march to the wilderness." - from Nauvoo Guide, 1939

No odyssey in Mormon history surpasses the tragedy and triumph of the Mormon exodus (February to June 1846) from Nauvoo, Illinois, to Winter Quarters, Nebraska. Deaths and other tragedies were varied and numerous, resulting from such terrors as “black scurvy,” cholera morbus, typhoid fever, “quick consumption” (tuberculosis), and maternal deaths, not to mention the weaknesses of human beings under stress. The triumph derived from the successful emigration of thousands of men, women, children, and livestock under such abominable conditions.

1849 ..........

Worldwide cholera outbreaks.

In January 1848, gold was discovered in California, launching the famous stampede of gold seekers to California in 1849. For outfitting gold seekers, Kanesville vied for preeminence with St. Joseph and Independence. These men swarmed into Kanesville, practically buying out the Latter-day Saint settlements? wagons, draw animals, supplies, and food. Shortages sent prices skyrocketing, benefiting sellers but pricing many Saints out of being able to afford to head west that famous first year of the gold rush. One estimate said that even with new ferries the Saints built in 1849, some 5,000 wagons of gold seekers in 1850 had to wait weeks for their turns to cross the river. 30 Kanesville's economy boomed.

Gold seekers brought into Kanesville a scene of vices and virtues. But some travelers heading west became exposed to the gospel and liked it. When the John Harris family reached Kanesville on their way to Oregon, they stopped near Bishop Joseph Knight's place. John Harris was ill. Prompted that the Harrises needed help, Bishop Knight recruited another brother and visited them. They blessed the man, who was instantly healed. Impressed, the family converted and went to Utah with a Latter-day Saint wagon train. 31

Kanesville's primary reason for being was to help Saints get to Utah. From 1848 to 1852 an estimated 46 Latter-day Saint wagon trains left, involving about 2,900 wagons and more than 25,000 Latter-day Saints.

The Pottawattamie High Council vowed to "spare no pains to further, by all available means in their power, the emigration to the Valley of the Great Salt Lake." Elder Hyde reported on 12 June 1850, "We have attended the organization of 350 wagons of Salt Lake emigrants." Because cholera was so rampant that year - reports said 60 Saints had died from it while crossing Nebraska - the branches in Pottawattamie County observed 14 July as a day of fasting and prayer.

1852 ..........

Closing Down Kanesville and Iowa LDS Settlements (1852)
In April 1852, six years after Thomas L. Kane described the encampment that became Kanesville, the following description of the same area appeared in the local newspaper: "It is a fine, flourishing town, and contains about 300 houses; 16 mercantile establishments; 2 drug stores; 2 printing offices; 5 hotels; 4 groceries; 2 jewelers shops; 1 harness maker; 8 wagon shops; 2 tinsmiths; 2 livery stables; 2 cabinet shops; 5 boot and shoe makers; 2 daguerrean rooms; 5 practical physicians; 9 attorneys at law; 1 gunsmith; 1 cooper; several ministers of different denominations; 3 barber shops; 4 bakeries; 1 mill; 7 blacksmith shops; and about 1,000 to 1,500 inhabitants.

Kanesville had become a thriving community; thus many Saints were getting "too" comfortable. But Kanesville and its surrounding Latter-day Saint settlements were never meant to be permanent. They were only to serve as stopover and recruitment places. "Abandonment, not establishment, was the watchword." So, in an epistle dated 21 September 1851, the First Presidency instructed "all the Saints in Pottawattamie" to come to Utah the next season "and fail not... What are you waiting for? Have you any good excuse for not coming? No! ? We wish you to evacuate Pottawattamie, and the States, and next fall be with us." Those who make the sacrifice "shall be blessed." In response, during 1852 the Saints pulled out of Kanesville and western Iowa and formed into a massive stream of emigrants flowing to Utah.

The next year, 1853, the locals renamed the city Council Bluffs. "The natural influx of Gentiles," a county history states, "so changed matters that its character as a Latter-day Saint community was lost forever." Whether this change was morally beneficial is debatable. Under the old dispensation the saloon, gambling and bawdy house were not tolerated, but now blossomed out in full vigor, and... the city was what would now be called a wide-open town."

- from Pushing on to Zion: Kanesville, Iowa, 1846-1853

William Daley, Mary Ann Graham and their children Matthew (8), John (4) and David James (infant) traveled to Salt Lake City as part of the Mormon Migration of 1852 in the Henry W. Miller Company departing Kanesville, Iowa on July 8, 1852, and arriving at Salt Lake City between Sept 10 and Oct 2, 1852. They may have crossed paths with the Russell sisters. See Janet, Elizabeth & Margaret Russell, from Scotland to Salt Lake City, Utah - The Mormon Migration.

The Henry M. Miller Company

"Bro. Miller was an excellent captain to travel with. Elder [Orson] Hyde and family were in the company. We made good time, passing all the companies along the road down to the 7th. The cholera was very bad on the plains that year, but only one or two died out of our company. Captain Miller would not stop in one camp long enough for the people to get sick and die. It was very sorrowful to see so many graves by the roadside... We arrived in Salt Lake City on September 24th, 1852.

- from Richard Bentley, Autobiographical Sketch

 

"After breakfast everything was got in readiness for travel. The teams and wagons were formed in line and started for another days journey on the plains. New and interesting to me was the various changes of the landscape, and its immediate scenery. The river bank in general was void of the lofty forest trees that lined the banks of the Mississippi and Missouri rivers, but clusters of Cottonwood and willows were the distinguished forestry of the country. Nothing of consequence occurred to break the monotony of travel for several days, only the meeting of occasional strolling bands of Indians either on the hunt or merely nomadic, changing temporary location for change of pasture for their stock: all app[ar]ently peacefully inclined but always hungry. At one time we had camped early one afternoon to give our cattle and horses a chance of good pasture, as the grass and vegetation was luxurious, for oftentimes feed along the line of travel was rather scant. We had not been long in camp when a moving black mass of something hove [sic] in sight. Our men were called out to collect the cattle together and drive them some distance from the camp to prevent a Stampede, as a herd of buffalo, which the mass proved to be, were steering for the river to drink, and our camp lay directly in their course, and at such times nothing could turn them. On they came as it were with the velocity of the wind, and with a pandemonium of noises that would drive a tenderfoot such as myself into hysterics, however I survived the shock. Some of our men who had travelled the plains two or 3 times previously knew what would be the result of such a charge and prepared for the onslaught by getting their guns in readiness. The herd at last reached us, ran directly through the camp to the river, crossed the river and kept on their course. However some of the herd was stopped by the rifles of our men and seven of the beasts were brought low, some falling right by the wagons. There were no other casualties, and we remained in camp all the next day cutting up and drying the meat. It furnished buffalo meat about sufficient for the camp the greater part of the journey onward.

1857 ..........

The arrival in Utah of the United States Army (1857) in an effort to control the seemingly rebellious Mormons was a stimulation to the economy of Utah and particularly Provo. The several thousand Mormons from Salt Lake City significantly, the soldiers from Camp Floyd needed materials and supplies. When the army finally left the area in July of 1861, more than $4,000,000 worth of Government property was sold at a public auction for about $100,000. One of the merchants who had prospered because of the residence of the soldiers was Samuel S. Jones. He had begun his mercantile business in Camp Floyd, first by making adobe bricks for the fort and then in partnership with William Daley by selling vegetables to the men. After the army left, Jones who had bought some of the government property, established a business with a Jewish merchant Benjamin Buchman. This partnership and its later dissolution are symbolic of the sometimes cooperation, more often competition, between the Mormon and non-Mormon merchants in Provo. The competition intensified with the Mormon cooperative effort. In a 1867 church meeting, Brigham Young exhorted the Mormons to maintain economic self-sufficiency and to trade only among themselves. He soon afterward suggested cooperative merchandising. Late in 1868, the ever enterprising S. S. Jones organized a group of Mormon merchants including David John and A. O. Smoot, at the "Provo Co-Operative Institution." Utah's first cooperative store—the "West Co-Op" was established on Center Street in the building built by Andrew Stewart. S. S. Jones became the manager. - from Living Places, Provo City
