I Nancy Haws, daughter of William Haws and Isabella Womack, was born August 25, 1823, in Wayne Co., Ill. Married on the 7th day of June 1840 to William Madison Wall. I was baptized in the year 1842 on January 10, 1842. My husband was baptized May 15, 1842. With him I moved in 1843 and in 1846 the mob drove us from our pleasant homes to the wilderness. We stopped at Pottewattamine, Iowa, to rest, where we remained four years. In September 1850 we arrived in Salt Lake Valley, and we came on to Provo where we settled in deprived hardship and privation of settling a new country. My husband was a public spirited man and was often away from home and I had the care of the family. Oftentimes all I could bear. We were Polygamists. I gave my husband four young women. 2nd Elisabeth Penrod, 3rd Emma Ford, 4th Susan Gurr, 5th Sarah Gurr. I with my husband, moved to Wallsburg which was named after him in September 8, 1864. He presided over this place until his death which occurred in September 18. 1869. I was ordained to preside over the Relief Society of Wallsburg when it was organized there on April 7, 1871 and continued to preside there until I moved to Provo July 3, 1879. It only remains for me to close this epistle by bearing my testimony to the truth of the Gospel of Christ. I will leave a lock of hair. I am now 57 past. This is to be opened by my Grand daughter Elsie Kerby or her daughter of 10 years of age if they are in good standing in the church, or Nellie Nuttall if she is in the Church. s/ Nancy H. Wall

Elizabeth Wall (Penrod) was 23 years old when Petroleum is discovered in Titusville, Pennsylvania leading to the world's first commercially successful oil well. Petroleum is a naturally occurring, yellow-to-black liquid found in geological formations beneath the Earth's surface. It is commonly refined into various types of fuels. Components of petroleum are separated using a technique called fractional distillation, i.e. separation of a liquid mixture into fractions differing in boiling point by means of distillation, typically using a fractionating column.
Elizabeth Wall (Penrod) was 26 years old when U.S. President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, declaring the freedom of all slaves in Confederate territory by January 1, 1863. Abraham Lincoln was an American statesman and lawyer who served as the 16th President of the United States from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States through the American Civil War—its bloodiest war and perhaps its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis. In doing so, he preserved the Union, abolished slavery, strengthened the federal government, and modernized the economy.

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.
Elizabeth Wall (Penrod) was 52 years old when The Great Blizzard of 1888 struck the northeastern United States, producing snowdrifts in excess of 50 ft (15 m) and confining some people to their houses for up to a week.

Snowfalls of 10 to 58 inches fell in parts of New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut, and sustained winds of more than 45 miles per hour (72 km/h) produced snowdrifts in excess of 50 feet (15 m).
