Joseph Rands.

Contributor: DdraigGoch Created: 3 years ago Updated: 3 years ago

George Raymond Mace says that Joseph Rands was the son of a well to do Englishman. Sarah Anderson, his future wife was the family maid. She was a Scotch girl and considered beneath the son, Joseph's rate. Joseph insisted on marrying her and ran away to do it. This angered Joseph's father and he told Joseph to stay away from the home. At this time England was trying to get people to settle South Africa and would transport them free and help them get started so Joseph and Sarah decided to go. When the first Elders of the LDS Church went to South Africa they converted the family and a few years later they decided to go to America. They only had enough money to get to New York so they got work in New Jersey. When they had earned enough money they went on to Utah. End. Some observations about family stories that are passed down. Genealogical research has shown that the Anderson family lived in England near London for over two hundred years. The surname of Anderson was recognized as a very Scottish name so even though the family had been in England for so long many English would still have considered them to be Scots. The English in general looked down on the Scots and the Irish as being immoral and belonging to a lower class of people. The biggest problem for Joseph and Sarah was the fact that Sarah was the family maid. Sons in the family did not marry the family maid and that is most likely the main reason that Joseph and Sarah were expelled from the family.

Life timeline of Joseph Rands

Joseph Rands was born on 27 Aug 1827
Joseph Rands was 4 years old when Charles Darwin embarks on his journey aboard HMS Beagle, during which he will begin to formulate his theory of evolution. Charles Robert Darwin, was an English naturalist, geologist and biologist, best known for his contributions to the science of evolution. He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors and, in a joint publication with Alfred Russel Wallace, introduced his scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection, in which the struggle for existence has a similar effect to the artificial selection involved in selective breeding.
Joseph Rands was 13 years old when Samuel Morse receives the patent for the telegraph. Samuel Finley Breese Morse was an American painter and inventor. After having established his reputation as a portrait painter, in his middle age Morse contributed to the invention of a single-wire telegraph system based on European telegraphs. He was a co-developer of the Morse code and helped to develop the commercial use of telegraphy.
Joseph Rands was 32 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.
Joseph Rands was 34 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.
