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
