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: 7 months ago Updated: 7 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.
