Elizabeth May, 27 May 1883 Sylvia Irene, 29 Sep 1885 Victoria Evelyn, 24 Oct 1887 Clarence Ray, 11 Jun 1890 (died as a child) Florence Elva, 26 Dec 1891 Child, 28 Feb 1895 buried with Mom Elizabeth was born on June 28, 1853, in Sowe, England. She was the youngest girl and the seventh child of nine. Six boys and three girls. Three boys died as small children while still in England. While in England, Elizabeth's mother joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, soon after, all the family was baptized. The family soon began making arrangements to come to Utah. She came first with a brother Thomas Waddoups and a sister, Mary Waddoups, then they were to send money home so the rest of the family could join them. The accounts of the scribes during the trek west tell of many hardships and successes that were experienced by all the pioneers. There are several items in the journals of Daniel Cotton Wood, who later became her husband, as to the journey and struggles of his assignment as a young man of nineteen, having been sent to help families coming to Utah. When she, Mary Ann and Thomas first got to the valley they stayed in Centerville with family and friends from England who had come earlier. Her father, mother and the rest of the children would come as soon as money was available. At sixteen years of age she married Daniel Cotton Wood age twenty-two, on June 8, 1869 in the Salt Lake Endowment House. Daniel was the son of Daniel Wood and Peninah Shropshire Cotton of Woods Cross, Utah. They had met on the trek west then shortly after he had been called on a mission to the Arizona and Mexican border. Daniel and Elizabeth made their first home in a house built of rock, which stood just east of Woods Cross, Utah, on the Joseph Wood Farm owned by Andrew Anderson. Later they sold out to Cyril Call and bought the Burnham 155 acre farm then later sold to Mr. Baskin. It is now called the Baskin Ranch. During these years in Woods Cross, six children were born to them. Five boys and one girl. Parley died as an infant just two years before Elizabeth May was born. Life was busy with all the care of a small family, and workers to feed, clothing to make, and training of a growing family. She was a very good teacher and kept very active working with the children. Her husband Daniel was the leader of the Wood Family Band that played all over the valley for weddings, dances, and celebrations of all kinds, during the thirteen years they lived there. Histories record many enjoyable times were shared by all those in the area because of the Wood Orchestra and the Wood Choir which was made up of the Wood sons' wives and families. The Wood School House was a place of learning for all the family as well as the community around them. It is recorded the families were taught by Charles Pearson who was paid with an exchange of work hours, or goods for the salary of the teacher and school expenses. Around 1884 they broke up the band even more when they moved to Rockland, Oneida, Idaho where his brother Heber Cotton Wood and his family had already moved. It took many hands working long hours to build the irrigation systems, and planting and harvesting crops. Long hard hours of teamwork were needed for a good harvest. Farming was good there. They were active in the area schools and church activities. Both Daniel c. and Heber C. were very good with the Indians because of the training they received from their mother who was part Cherokee and were able to help establish peace in the area with the Indians and farmers. They stayed there a short time, but were never totally pleased with the area, so they willingly took an opportunity to settle the Star Valley, Wyoming area. This beautiful valley seemed to be heaven in the summer and a fairyland as the leaves turning to gold settled on the valley floor. Becoming too soon packed in a crisp heavy cold blanket of snow during their long winters. That made summer preparations for the long winters vital. Elizabeth taught their family well to store food and weave cloth to sew the clothing needs of the family. Each member of the family realized his responsibility. This proved an asset as her husband was called to a British Mission in early February of 1893 just a few years after arriving in Auburn, Wyoming. She was left with a growing family of nine children ages twenty-two to a five month old little girl named Florence Elva who had been taught to be very self sufficient. Little Clarence Ray, age three, died shortly before his father returned from England. His death was very difficult for Elizabeth and all the family. The promise of life eternal knowing she would see little Clarence Ray and Parley Pratt Wood again made life easier. Early in spring 1894 the family welcomed Daniel home and were truly happy in their little valley home. They enjoyed their family and had such fun together. She had always been very active in teaching. Her church callings were many in Primary, Sunday School and Relief Society. She kept especially busy in things that interested her family. Elizabeth taught her family to love life by her example. She taught them to love and respect others and that animals were also to be treated with kindness and respect. She was a very kind gracious, warm hostess who always had something to feed a stranger and a clean warm bed to sleep in. Her mother had been a Midwife so she learned many skills of health that were taught to her family. Being a wife of a man who loved to colonize had its blessings and challenges. But Elizabeth met them side by side with her husband. She was very faithful and followed the feelings of the spirit of each and every situation. Elizabeth died at the birth of their eleventh child the 28th of February, 1895, and is buried with their child in the Auburn Cemetery, Star Valley, Wyoming. Her unexpected death was very difficult for her husband and their children. Her family was then raised by (Aunt Maggie) Margaret Edwards, the second wife, a wonderful young English convert who Daniel C. had met in England. She came to Wyoming to help with the very difficult task of raising his family. They later left Star Valley moving to Blackfoot, Idaho where their three children were born: Milton, Mary Edna and Andrew. Obituary contributed by Marla Webb OBITUARY NOTES From Deseret Weekly, Volume 50 contents # 448 ELIZABETH WADDOUPS WOOD. Mrs. Elizabeth Waddoups Wood was born June 28, 1853, at Sowe, Warwickshire, England; was baptized March 3, 1860, and confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints March 5, 1865; emigrated to Utah with her parents in the year 1868; located at Bountiful, Davis County, Utah. She was married to Daniel C. Wood on Feb. 8, 1869, at the Endowment House, Salt Lake City. Moved from Bountiful to Rockland, Oneida County, Idaho, in company with her family in Jan, I883, and from there to Star Valley, Wyo., in 1809. On Feb. 24, 1895 she gave birth to a girl, which died, and on Feb. 28, 1895, she passed away from this stage of action to a land of rest, as promised to the faithful; for she was faithful and was a pure-hearted wife and mother; she was always happy and cheerful. She leaves a husband, four sons and four daughters to mourn her loss. She has buried two boys and one girl. The funeral services of Sister Wood were held at Auburn, March 2, 1895, presided over by Bishop Hemon Hyde. Elder A. V. Call was the first speaker. He had been acquainted with the departed sister perhaps longer than any one present except her father and brother; too much could not be said in her praise and eulogy. She was a true Saint. We believe as a people in the resurrection. Our sister has but passed to another sphere to there continue her labors. He prayed that the Lord would bless the bereaved family and comfort and cheer them for life's struggle. Elder W. W. Burton was the next speaker, and also offered words of consolation and instruction. Bishop J. C. Dewey then addressed the meeting in a similar strain, citing the last words of Sister Wood, "Father, Thy will be done." Elder Thomas Waddoups, of Bountiful, brother of the departed sister, also addressed the meeting, acknowledging the hand of the Lord in His providences. Elder George Osmond, president of the Stake, read from the Book of Mormon (Alma, 40th chapter) of death and of the resurrection of the body of men. He referred to the many virtues of the deceased, and said he knew she died the death of the righteous. He urged those present to emulate her example of faithfulness and awaken to their duties. Bishop Hemon Hyde endorsed the remarks of the previous speaker. He said Sister Wood was indeed a good counselor—a mother to old and young. The services were then brought to a close.— Family links: Parents: Thomas Waddoups (1816 - 1900) Elizabeth Porter Waddoups (1816 - 1884) Spouse: Daniel Cotton Wood (1847 - 1934) Children: Daniel Thomas Wood (1870 - 1959)* Infant Daughter Wood (1872 - 1872)* Joseph Waddoups Wood (1875 - 1959)* William Waddoups Wood (1876 - 1917)* Franklin Daniel Wood (1879 - 1968)* Parley Pratt Wood (1881 - 1893)* Elizabeth May Wood Parrish (1883 - 1939)* Sylvia Irene Wood Hansen (1885 - 1976)* Victoria Evelyn Wood Hodson (1887 - 1963)* Clarence Ray Wood (1890 - 1893)* Florence Elva Wood Sorenson (1891 - 1960)* Baby Wood (1895 - 1895)* *Calculated relationship Burial: Auburn Cemetery Auburn Lincoln County Wyoming, USA Created by: Renae Burgess Linn Record added: Dec 30, 2009 Find A Grave Memorial# 4615553
