Contributor: trishkovach Created: 9 months ago Updated: 9 months ago

Caleb William Haws is the son of Gilberth Haws and Hannah Whitcomb Haws. He is their ninth child and their fifth son. He was born in Green Township, Wayne County, Illinois. He is brother to Caroline (1825 – 1853), Matilda (1826– 1849), Lucinda (1828 – 1917), Elizabeth "Eliza or Beth" (1830 – 1855), Francis Marion (1831 – 1914), Amos Whitcomb (1833 – 1888), William Wallace (1835 – 1895), Albert W.

He is the paternal grandson to Jacob Haws & Hannah Neill Haws and maternal grandson to Oliver Whitcomb & Olive Bidlick Whitcomb. He emigrated to Utah at the age of 10 with his family. They departed Winter Quarters, Nebraska on June 5, 1848 with the Brigham Young Company and arrived in the Salt Lake Valley between September 20 - September 24 in 1848. He married Eliza Ann Snow, daughter of James C. Snow, on July 24, 1862 in Provo, Utah County, Utah. He is father to Eliza Ann (1863 – 1939), Mary Ellen (1866 – 1922), Diantha Vilate (1868 – 1868), Sarah Jane (1869 – 1870), and Caleb Willman (1871 – 1941). [this son was born one month after he left for his mission. He died on his mission that same year so never saw his last son.] Caleb William Haws was a member of the 4th Quorum of the Seventy. He was also a captain in the Navoo Legion at Provo, Utah. He was set apart for a mission to England on April 22, 1871. He arrived in Liverpool, England on May 22, 1871, and was assigned to the Manchester conference where he labored well and was well loved. Upon the departure of Elder Thomas G. Wooley he was appointed to succeed him in the presidency of the Sheffield conference. Elder Caleb William Haws died of smallpox on November 20, 1871 and is buried in the Darton Parish Church of All Saints, in the Diocese of Wakefield, churchyard near Barnsley, South Yorkshire, England. His upright headstone remains intact and reads "Sacred to the memory of Elder Caleb W Haws / Missionary from Salt Lake City / Born October 7th 1838 / Died November 20th 1871 / aged 33 years / He is not dead but sleeping."

Caleb W Haws mission success story

Contributor: trishkovach Created: 9 months ago Updated: 9 months ago

This picture is from a Junior Girls Project scrapbook compiled by Ida Marjorie Norman Harline (KWCD-LDD) circa 1935. Ida’s parents George Henry Norman and Elizabeth Jackson Norman joined the LDS church in Hull, Yorkshire, England in January 1901. They housed several missionaries in England until they immigrated to Utah in 1921. Caleb W Haws was one of the missionaries included in Ida's scrapbook. He is given credit for being the missionary who baptized the Norman's in Hull, England. He married and had only one child, a daughter who married but died in her 20's before having children. I reached out to the family and a cousin of Caleb's responded with gratitude for knowing this story. Because of Caleb's service he brought many generations into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Just as a note of interest, Caleb's father also served a mission to England (his native country) never to return to Utah. He died while serving in England, one month after his son Caleb was born in Utah.

Life timeline of Caleb Willman Haws

Caleb Willman Haws was born on 22 May 1871
Caleb Willman Haws was 12 years old when Eruption of Krakatoa: Four enormous explosions destroy the island of Krakatoa and cause years of climate change. The 1883 eruption of Krakatoa in the Dutch East Indies began in the afternoon of Sunday, 26 August 1883, and peaked in the late morning of Monday, 27 August when over 70% of the island and its surrounding archipelago were destroyed as it collapsed into a caldera. Additional seismic activity was reported to have continued until February 1884, though reports of seismic activity after October 1883 were later dismissed by Rogier Verbeek's investigation into the eruption. The 1883 eruption was one of the deadliest and most destructive volcanic events in recorded history. At least 36,417 deaths are attributed to the eruption and the tsunamis it created. Significant additional effects were also felt around the world in the days and weeks after the volcano's eruption.

Caleb Willman Haws was 33 years old when The Wright brothers make their first attempt to fly with the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were two American aviators, engineers, inventors, and aviation pioneers who are generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world's first successful airplane. They made the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft on December 17, 1903, four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In 1904–05 the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible.

Caleb Willman Haws was 46 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.

George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball (MLB) spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand as of 2018. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.
