Learner Quimby, born 6 June 1872, one of twelve children born to George Washington Quimby and Victoria Ellen Woner. She was the fourth of a family that consisted of five girls and seven boys. Her father was a farmer and also in the army, at one time. The family was one of the leading families in the area of Jesamine County, Kentucky. Benajah Julius Record moved in with the family when he was 17 years old in 1883 and worked on the farm. At that time he met Learner, who was just a girl, age 11. He doesn’t recall even talking to her, as he states they both were very shy. Several years later, he returned to work on the farm. He was then, 27 years old and Leaner now was 21 years of age. They fell in love and were married 13 Dec., 1893 in Nicholasville, Jessamine, Kentucky. After they married, they moved to live with Benajah’s parents, who were old and alone. They lived there about six years. It was while living there that they met the Mormon Missionaries. Benajah was baptized the 9 Oct, 1899, and Leaner the following spring on the 25 May, 1900. They left Kentucky in 1900 and moved to Honeyville, Utah, with their four children, Hubert, Eugene, Ode, and Cecil May, . Learner was a very quiet, reserved woman and Benajah and Leaner had thirteen children. She was a wonderful cook, and laborers who worked on the farm always wanted to work for the Records because of her good cooking. In later years, Odes new wife, Dorcas, remarked at the dinner table, she had never seen so much food in her life. They later moved to Deweyville, Utah Her last child, James Berne Record, was born 13 February, 1915 and it was then discovered that Leaner had breast cancer. Her older children took over her chores, with her supervision. She was a wonderful mother, and always kept her children clean, and was a kind and loving wife. Always had a smile for everyone. Dr. Whitlock who attended her with the birth of their last child, Bernie, remarked to Benajah that she was very reserved and she was modest to the extreme. In May, 1916, she told her husband Benajah that she thought they should go to the temple and have their temple work done. They went on ahead and had their endowments done, and the children followed the next day and all thirteen of the children were sealed to their parents, as an eternal family on the 15 March, 1916. Leaner died on 26 September, 1916 and was buried in the Deweyville Cemetery, Deweyville, Utah. Elder George Mays remarked at her funeral that “Sister Record was the sweetest tempered person he had ever met.” Benajah never got over her passing, and never remarried. He died at the age of 91 years, and is buried next to her in Deweyville.
