  • Notes 
    • Samuel Barnes Taylor was a pioneer of 1852. He was born at Ashton, Underloyd, Lancashire, England ,16 october 1841, the youngest of a family of 12 children. He crossed the plains three times, once with his parents and twice when he went back for immigrants in 1862 and 1863. But he settled down when he married Eliza Jane West 1865 in the Old Endowment House in Salt Lake. They had seven Children who lived to grow up. They were, Mary Jane, John W., Harriet, Sarah Ann. Naomie, and Samuel L.. Eliza Jane was born born at Borrowash, Derbyshire, England in 1847 and came to St. Jose in 1851 with her parents and four other children aboard a sailing ship. But when they got to St. Jose, cholera was so bad that her father and the rest of the children died and she and her mother became a part of a company that took three months to cross the plains. When she was old enough her stepfather taugh her to spin on the flax wheel where she spun all the thread for their towels, tablecloths and bed ticking. As she grew older she learned to use the wool wheel and spun wool for for six different families. During the grasshopper plague that occured when she was small, she was sent out to gather weeds and thistles that the family could eat. In her account of her life she told of remembering how good the first rye flour was she ever had tasted in the one pancake she allowed to have. When fall came her stepfather took the children to the canyon to gather service berries, chokecherries and elderberries to bottle. The fruit was preserved in molasses because they had no sugar. That same year the father was ill all winter long and the youngsters had to saw wood for the fire. Since they had no money for shoes, they went barefoot with only rags tied around their feet to protect them from the cold. In spite of their efforts their feet were often frozen. With the coming of Johnston's army the family moved to south to Provo River to avoid the soldiers. Eliza Jane's stepfather would go int the city to work as a carpenter and receive flour as pay. Then she and her two stepsisters would wade in the river and catch fish with their hands. which was the only meat they had. With a background reflecting a strong concept of the work ethic, Samuel Barnes and Eliza Jane worked together to raise a family and in both the church and the community. Samuel Barnes helped to build the Utah and Salt Lake Canal, and was one of those who chose the site for the Pleasant Green Cemetery. He was also involved in school activities here. Eliza Jane worked as a Relief Society teacher with Francis Hardman for 25 years, handling the whole eastern half of the ward which extended to 4800 west. At age 79 she won first prize at the Utah State Fair with a quilt having more than 1,100 pieces in it which were hand-sewn. Out of the eight people who came out here on that spring day in 1868, Eliza Jane was the last survivor. On October 1, 1934 she said " I am the mother of seven children, 40 grandchildren, 56 great-grandchildren and am still well at the age of 86 years and five months. On Jan 25, 1935 she died quietly in her own home. This was taken from a newspaper, Eagle-Advertiser (Murray Utah, Thursday september 13, 1979. Note: For what purpose I do not know.
