Life Sketches of Henry Buckley and Sarah Ann Gledhill

Contributor: trishkovach Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Life Sketches of Henry Buckley and Sarah Ann Gledhill Henry Buckley was born at Oldham, Lancashire, England on 21 June 1840. He was the oldest son of Edmund Buckley and Harriet Dunkerley. He had two half brothers from a previous marriage of his father, and three half sisters from two other marriages of his mother. Henry's father passed away when he was just eleven years old. Life must have been very hard for this group of people in England, for on the 1851 census of Oldham. little Henry was listed as a weaver. After his father's death he continued at this trade to help his mother in providing for her family. The Mormon Elders had taken the gospel to England, and Harriet had joined the church, and being a religious woman, took her children to church faithfully. On 1 Jul. 1853 Henry was baptizes into the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. In those early days of the church in England, probably because of the natural desire of men to assert their authority, and not fully understanding the gospel, many of the Saints were excommunicated for minor infractions such as talking in church or missing meeting for three weeks in a row, etc. Whatever the reason, young Henry was excommunicated. On 24 May 1858 he was baptized again, but it didn't last long, for on 9 Sep. 1858 he was again cut off. He was re-baptized on 29 Mar. 1863. Just why he went to Rochdale is not known, but the branch records show his church membership records were sent there on 9 Oct. 1864. Sarah Ann Gledhill was born 15 May 1841 at Crompton, Lancashire, England. Crompton is a small hamlet just outside of Oldham and they may have known each other for some time, I don't know; at any rate, Sarah Ann & Henry were married 15 Oct. 1865 in the Oldham Parish Church. On 21 Aug. 1866 Jane Elizabeth, their first child was born. Many of the Saints were immigrating to America, so on 10 Sep. 1867 Henry and Sarah Ann set sail for the land of Zion. Henry's father-in-law had given Henry a little brown book to record important dates and happenings in, and Henry did just that. This little brown book is in the family file in my possession and from it many genealogical facts have been learned. Quoting from Grandpa's little brown book, "I, Henry Buckley, sailed from Liverpool with my wife and child on the 10th of Sept. 1867 on board the steamship Tariffa, Cumard Line, and arrived at New York on the 22nd and the Manyunk on the 24th about 11:30 P.M. In good health but a little fatigued. Rested a few days and then began to search for work but found trade in a very bad way. After walking about two weeks I commenced to work in the Picker house for the firm of Rafford and Winterbottom of Manyunk at $8 (eight) dollars per week." Henry and Sarah Ann lived in Manyunk, Phil., Pennsylvania for seven years. While there John, Louise, & Henry Jr. were born. Jane Elizabeth and John died and were buried there in Leverington Cemetery. Life must have been hard for them in Manyunk. There is an entry in grandpa's book that lists the place and the time to obtain "free" medicine. There are many recipes for medicine or home remedies in the diary also, so grandpa and grandma must have done much "doctoring" of their little family. They decided to go west and in July 1874 they arrived in Provo, Utah. That Sept. little Henry died and was buried at Provo. Soon after William Edward was born and on 10 Feb. 1877 Sarah Ann my mother, was born. She was followed by a sister Harriet, and on 2 Feb. 1883 twins were born and were named Albert and Birtha. Albert died 30 May 1884 and on 21 Aug 1884, Birtha died. Harriet married David Hiatt. Louise married Jesse Orson Harris (they are buried at Driggs, Idaho.) William went back to Penn. and married Margaret Shaffer; they lived and died there. My mother, Sarah Ann married Joseph Hyrum Bahr and they are buried in Provo, Utah. Henry's parents both died in England and are buried there. Sarah Ann's mother died in Provo and is buried there and her father is buried in Gunnison, Utah. Henry and Sarah Ann passed away within six weeks of each other -- Henry passing away on 30 Nov. 1915 and Sarah Ann on 15 Jan. 1916 They are both buried in Provo, Utah. The trade Henry learned in England as a small boy, turned out to be a good vocation, and he was employed at the Provo Woolen Mills for thirty-three years -- being loom boss for most of that time. There are many designs & directions for weaving them in grandpa's book. I have a copy of his obituary which says "For the past several years he has been in poor health, but it was only a little over a week before he died that he was confined to his bed. During his long illness he was ever patient, and was gifted with the spirit of cheerfulness, being able to see the bright side of life although sorely afflicted and in pain. He was the father of nine children, three of whom survive him. Henry Buckley was not known because of his public position, nor as an orator, or public speaker, but he was known by that greater and bigger title -- an honest and God fearing man." NOTE: Sarah Ann had been baptized into the L. D. S. church on 20 Nov. 1852. I don't know if she was ever excommunicated or not - it is doubtful - but on 27 Aug 1875, in Provo first ward, they were both re-baptized. Author: Edith H.

Henry Buckley was 43 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.
