    BIOGRAPHY.
    RACHEL [KEELING WEST] WHIPPLE.

    Source: "Biography: Rachel [Casseldine West] Whipple, Woman’s Exponent 36 (1907-1908):10.

    [page 10] Rachel Whipple was born in Draket, Derbyshire, England, March 10, 1817. Her parents, William and Sarah Casseldine, were good, God-fearing people, but Sister Rachel never knew the love of her father and mother, as she was left an orphan when but fifteen weeks old. She was then taken under the guardianship of Henry and Elizabeth Godbe, who taught her principles in her youth which helped to build the true and noble character she now possess.

    On November 12, 1837, she was married to John West. Sister Rachel had been raised as a member of the Methodist church, but in the year 1848 she had the privilege of hearing an Elder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and in August of the same year she along with her husband and family embraced the Gospel.

    Brother and Sister West were blessed with five children, but were called to part with one of them. On New Year’s day, 1851, they and their four children left England for the valleys of the mountains. Their ocean voyage was a very tedious one, lasting ten weeks and three days. After arriving in New Orleans Brother and Sister West journeyed to St. Joseph. Here the entire family was taken ill and was not able to do anything for one another. As they were among strangers, there was not a friend to call on for aid. For days the children lay crying for attention, and the father and mother were too ill to do anything for them. The weather was bitter cold and they had no fire. During these times Brother West and three of the children were called to the other side, leaving mother and daughter alone.

    In the spring Sister Rachel and her daughter began their wearisome journey across the plains with an ox and a cow yoked together for their team. After many hardships they arrived in Salt Lake City on August 5, 1852, and made their home with Brother Jesse West of the Sixth ward.

    On the 10th of March, 1853, Sister Rachel was married to Nelson Whipple and came to reside in what was then the Nineteenth ward. Brother and Sister Whipple were blessed with three children.

    On May 14, 1868, Eliza R. Snow and Bishop Raleigh organized the Relief Society in the Nineteenth ward, when Sister Whipple, who was always an energetic worker and did all she could to assist the poor and needy, was called to act as First Counselor to Sister Agatha Pratt. She labored faithfully in this position for nine years and six months, when, owing to the removal of Sister Pratt from the ward, she was called to preside over the Society.

    A few years after Sister Whipple had been called to take charge of the Nineteenth ward Society the ward was divided and the Twenty-second ward was organized, which made Sister Whipple a member of the new ward. So on the 16th of June, 1889, Sister Whipple was made President of the new Twenty-second ward Society, with Mary Jeremy as her first and Maria L. Nebeker as her second counselor. When they began their work in the new ward they had nothing to work with and no place in which to hold their meetings, so they began meeting in Sister Whipple’s house. At their first business meeting, Sister Jeremy brought needles, thread and some calico, and the sisters spent their time in sewing. From this humble beginning the Society grew and prospered exceedingly under the direction of Sister Whipple, and they built a very commodious hall in which to hold their meetings.

    On Nov. 12, 1901, Sister Mary Jeremy, who had been a faithful worker, was released on account of illness, and Sister Maria L. Nebeker was called to act as first counselor and Sister Elizabeth H. Davis as second counselor to Sister Whipple. Soon after this, Sister Nebeker was taken very ill, which prevented her attending to her duties as a counselor, therefore the work was left to Sister Whipple and Sister Davis.

    For nearly thirty-seven years Sister Whipple labored faithfully in Relief Society work, but finally, on account of her feebleness and poor health, was compelled to resign from her labors. Therefore in June, 1904, she in connection with Sister Nebeker was honorably released with the love and blessings of all.

    The beloved subject of this sketch, Sister Whipple, is still living, and although she is over ninety years of age, still she possesses her faculties of mind and can sing the hymns of Zion with a clear, sweet voice or converse with her friends with a great amount of pleasure. During her life she has shown herself to be a true and noble woman, and it is the desire of the sisters with whom she associated that she may live as long as life is desirable to her, and have the satisfaction of knowing when she passes to another sphere, that she has done her work well, and has been loved by all who knew her. When the angel of death shall call her to the heavenly home, may she fall asleep as a babe on its mother’s breast, receive a glorious resurrection, and reign as a queen in the heavenly kingdom forever.

    President 22nd ward Relief Society.

    History: They left England 20 June or 20 May 1868, sailing on the packet ship "Emerald Isle" over 8 weeks on the Atlantic. Aunt Nancy bore a baby girl on the ship, who they named "Emerald." They were with over 800 LDS Saints on board. 37 people died. He was a presiding Elder in Magna (then Pleasant Green) Utah and was Branch President up to the time he died. After that time, the branch became a Ward. The history of Pleasant Green Ward reported: in 1877 a branch organization was effected with John Hirst as presiding Elder and the same year an adobe meeting house was built, which served the branch and later the ward, until 1897, when it was replaced by a substantial brick chapel. Elder Hirst died Set. 7, 1878 and was succeeded as presiding Elder by Lehi Nephi Hardman (who became bishop when the ward was created as part of the Salt Lake Stake on Oct. 1, 1882. It became part of Pioneer Stake on 1904.)
