Daniel Goulding - Stalwart Mormon Pioneer

Contributor: kdbulloch Created: 2 months ago Updated: 2 months ago

Name: Daniel Goulding Birth Date: 31 Mar 1831 Birth Place: Winterbournedown, Gloucester, England Parents: John and Rosanna Bray Goulding Jr. Death Date: 01 Aug 1905 Death Place: Henrieville, Garfield, UT Arrival Utah: Fall 1868 First Spouse: Elizabeth Pratten Marriage Date: 19 Feb 1851 2nd Spouse: Fanny Pratten Marriage Date: 16 May 1870 Daniel first heard the missionaries when he was 14 years old. He was baptized in 1845. His parents were not happy with this decision, so Daniel left home and went to live with his grandparents, John and Sarah Baylis Goulding. His grandfather had been baptized by Parley P. Pratt in 1840. After his grandmother died, Daniel and his grandfather went back to live with his parents. There was an active branch of the Church there and that is where he met the two sisters who would become his wives. Australia had been built up as the place to settle and get wealthy in the gold mines, so Daniel and Elizabeth sailed there in 1853-54 - settling in New South Wales, 100 miles from Sydney, where Daniel found work in the mines. Sometime between 1859 and 1861 they moved their family to Tourago, where they founded a branch of The Curch and stayed until 1868. Then they set sail for America. After arriving in California they moved toward Utah, settling for a time in St. Thomas, {known as "The Big Muddy"} which was later covered by Lake Mead. They were there four years. About this time, Elizabeth's sister Fanny came to Utah. Daniel brought his family to Salt Lake where he was married to Fanny and sealed to both of his wives. When they arrived home in Southern Utah, they found that their eldest son William had died. Out of 10 children, five had died. Sometime in 1872, Daniel moved his family to American Fork and later to Pleasant Grove. In 1878 he again moved, this time to New Clifton. After losing his fruit trees to a severe drought, he moved to Henrievile where he became the first Ward Bishop and Elizabeth the first Relief Society President. Fanny was the first school teacher and Postmistress. Daniel was arrested for polygamy and charged six cents. Daniel was a cobbler and carpenter in addition to farming and stockraising. He also played the violin. He remained active in The Church and community. Children of 1st wife: -William , b. 21 Dec 1851 , Risca, Monmouth, Wales.

Elijah Goulding

Contributor: kdbulloch Created: 2 months ago Updated: 2 months ago

(I found this document in a stack of Family History papers) Elijah Goulding was born Oct. 16, 1855 at Sidney [Sydney], New South Wales, Australia, a son of Daniel and Elizabeth Maryfield Pratten Goulding. When he was 10 years old his parents joined the LDS Church and came to America. They landed in California about 1864 after a sea voyage of 41 days. When they landed, their money was gone and it was necessary for him, his father, and his 14-year old brother to find work as soon as possible. In Wales his father and brother had worked in the coal mines and Elijah worked as a chore boy to carry after and lunches to the miners. So here in California they sought the only work they knew but here Elijah, only 11 years old, worked inside the mines too. At the end of three years they were called to the Muddy Mission in Nevada where they spent some time and then they came to Pine Valley, Utah, near St. George, and stayed there for a few years. During this time three more children were born to the family, to make a total of 9. Elijah’s Mother had a sister who joined the church after his family left Wales and she came to America. When she reached Utah Elijah’s father met her in Salt Lake and she became his second wife. They were still living in Pine Valley at this time. They milked cows and made butter and cheese and in the fall they took their produce to Northern Utah and traded for things which they were unable to raise. Elijah’s father was a very stern man. He ruled his children with an iron hand and a whip they called a cat of nine tails. In the fall after Aunt Fanny, the second wife, came to live with them, Elijah’s father and mother took the produce to the market and left Aunt Fanny to care for the children. While they were gone, Elijah left home due to a misunderstanding with his father. This was in the fall of 1871 when Elijah was about 16 years old and he never saw his father again. He went into Arizona and Nevada working around mining camps. His parents moved to Pleasant Grove after he left home and then were sent to settle Henrieville in Garfield County, Utah. About the year 1875 Elijah lost track of his parents and he went from place to place wherever he could find work. He helped drive large herds of cattle from Texas to Montana and from there to shipping points at Omaha, Nebraska and Kansas City, Missouri. He herded cattle in Wyoming, farmed in Minnesota, worked as a lumberjack and herded cattle in the Dakota’s and Montana. During his wandering he was separated from the church and never was an active member. On one of his trips to Montana he met Margaret Van Dorn, daughter of one of Montana’s earliest settlers, Hezekiah and Caroline Virginia Duncan Van dorn (about 1888). About two years later he made another trip to Montana and at this time he married Margaret. They lived on her father’s farm about 7 miles from Missoula, Montana, at a place called Miller Creek. While living there, five children were born to them: Charles Hezekiah, Fern Ora, Caroline Evelyn, a boy stillborn, unnamed, and Laura Edna. They left Montana in 1901 in the spring and moved to Salmon City, Idaho. While at Salmon City he freighted back to Redrock, Montana, with horses and wagons. Two more sons were born to the family at Salmon City; Elijah George, 1902, and Morris Grant, 1903. At the age of 10 months Morris died with pneumonia and was buried at Salmon City. The family then moved to Gilmore mining camps where he hauled ore to the railroad at Dubois, Idaho and supplies back to the mines. It became necessary to move to Dubois to put the children in school at the start of the school year. The son George took sick before they left Gilmore and died soon after the move to Dubois. He was buried there. On January 30, 1905, another son, Ernest Griffin, was born to the family at Dubois, Idaho. On March 12, 1906, there was a fire in the business part of town which was only a block from Elijah’s home. A store and hotel burned and all the people in that part of town had to leave their homes. There was snow on the ground and it was very cold. Elijah had to take his family about a half a mile through the snow and his wife caught cold. She died April 6, 1906, with pneumonia and was buried at Dubois. Elijah was left with five children but he managed to keep them together. After the death of his wife he filed on a homestead (dry farm) tow miles south of Dubois, where he lived with his children. He continued his freighting and did some farming to earn his living. About 1908 or 1909, he married again, a widow named Harriet Bowers, from England. It was not a successful marriage; during a quarrel over the marriage he shot a man in self defense and killed him. Elijah was shot in the hand. While Elijah was awaiting his trial at S. Anthony, Idaho, two of his brothers who had farms near St. Anthony saw his name in the paper and went to investigate. They found that he was the brother who had left some so many years ago and also that he looked very much like his father. The brothers who found him were William (Uncle Billy), and Evan (Uncle Ev), sons of his father’s second wife (his father had two wives living at the time). They contacted another brother, Joseph, who was Elijah’s full brother and a lawyer in Panguitch, Utah. Uncle Evan and Uncle Joe came from St. Anthony to Dubois to see his family. When his trail came up, Uncle Joe, who was a good lawyer, defended him and he was acquitted. He brought his family to Henrieville, Utah, where, on Oct 8 1911, he was reunited with his Mother. She and Aunt Fanny, Daniel’s second wife, had lived at Henrieville for some time. Daniel had been dead for several years. It was 40 years and 8 days from the time he left home until the time he returned. The family lived at Henrieville for a time, and then Elijah took a homestead in John’s VAlley near Pine Lake. They lived there for several years before Elijah came to Alton to haul logs for the Campbell sawmill near Alton. He held this job until just a few years before his death. He died at Alton on January 2, 1940, at the age of 84 and was buried there January 4.

Life timeline of Elijah Goulding

Elijah Goulding was born on 16 Oct 1855
Elijah Goulding was 5 years old when American Civil War: Fort Sumter surrenders to Confederate forces. The American Civil War was a war fought in the United States from 1861 to 1865. As a result of the long-standing controversy over slavery, war broke out in April 1861, when Confederate forces attacked Fort Sumter in South Carolina, shortly after U.S. President Abraham Lincoln was inaugurated. The nationalists of the Union proclaimed loyalty to the U.S. Constitution. They faced secessionists of the Confederate States, who advocated for states' rights to expand slavery.
Elijah Goulding was 24 years old when Thomas Edison demonstrates incandescent lighting to the public for the first time, in Menlo Park, New Jersey. Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.
Elijah Goulding was 28 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.

RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early hours of 15 April 1912, after colliding with an iceberg during its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. There were an estimated 2,224 passengers and crew aboard, and more than 1,500 died, making it one of the deadliest commercial peacetime maritime disasters in modern history. RMS Titanic was the largest ship afloat at the time it entered service and was the second of three Olympic-class ocean liners operated by the White Star Line. It was built by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast. Thomas Andrews, her architect, died in the disaster.
Elijah Goulding was 74 years old when Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player to hit 500 home runs in his career with a home run at League Park in Cleveland, Ohio. 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.
Elijah Goulding was 84 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
