History of ANNA BARBARA FELTMAN JOHNSON (1840-1893)

Contributor: DeeDee Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

As furnished by her Daughter: Florence Johnson Griffiths My Mother, ANNA BARBARA FELTMAN JOHNSON, was born in St. Immer Canton Bern, Switzerland, on December 29, 1840. As a girl she worked in a watch factory in her native land. She came to Utah in 1861 when she was twenty one years of age. she left her home in Switzerland for the Gospel sake and with her brother, Andrew Feltman, came to America on a sail ship called "Monarch of the Sea". Their ocean voyage took nine weeks. She left her Mother on her sick bed when she left Switzerland and never saw her again. Mother walked across the plains with the exception of one day. this instance Mother often told one afternoon her and her girl friend (who later married a Hockstrasser) became tired and sat down by the road side to rest. The Company got so far ahead of them that they lost their way. Night overtook them and they spent the night alone. The Company was so worried about them as there was so many Indians in that section that none of them slept much and as soon as daylight came, two men on horseback were sent to find the girls. They located the girls safe. No harm had come to them and when they got back to camp they were allowed to ride that day. They were so frightened at having to stay out all night alone that Mother said they spent the most of the night praying for protection and the chance of being found by their Company when day came. On the way across the plains, Mother broke her ankle, but this did not stop her journey. Throughout her life she had a slight deformity of the ankle caused by this accident which she suffered while making the trip to Utah. When Mother and her Brother Andrew arrived in Salt Lake City, they hired out in order to gain a livelihood. Mother worked in the home of a fairly well to do family. Her brother took typhoid fever and he lay desperately ill in a barn with no one to care for him or to bring him food. Mother would salvage food from the garbage can at the home where she worked and take it to him at night after her work was done and stay with him all night, then walk back to her work early the next morning a distance of one mile. She would take her coat off to cover over her brother to keep him warm as his bed consisted of nothing but straw. When Mother was twenty-three years of age, she married my father, John Peter Johnson, on the 21st day of November 1863 in the endowment house by Heber C. Kimball. although she never enjoyed good health she always went to her meetings when she could. She was a faithful Latter-day Saint, a kind and loving wife and mother. She was the mother of thirteen children - six girls and seven boys. Only six grew to maturity: four girls and two boys. She died in father's arms on April 15, 1893 at the age of fifty three years three months and fourteen days. (Copy in the possession of Christena Richards Christensen - Feb. 2015)

History of JOHN PETER JOHNSON (1838-1927)

Contributor: DeeDee Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

As furnished by his Daughter Florence Johnson Griffith In December 1926 my father related to me the following incidents in his life. I wrote them down as nearly as possible word for word as he told them to me. "Skellet Denmark, the place where I was born, was just a little string town close to the river. My mother took wool from the sheep's back and made clothes for us children. When I was eight years of age, I was hired out for six months to herd stock. By climbing a hill I could see my home and every day I climbed this hill and cried I was so homesick. Mother came to see me once in a while to see if I needed anything. Aunt Inger also came and brought me good things to eat as did mother. I earned four dollars that season. Aunt Inger was mother's sister. at the age of twelve, I went to work on a farm. My job was to take care of the cows. I had to milk them three times a day. I coupled the cows together four abreat to lead them to the field. at fifteen I went on a mission to Hemmel Land and stayed two years. At seventeen I went to work with my father building and thatching houses and worked in this capacity until I left for America. When I was twenty three years old I made the journey to America. I left Gudumland, Denmark on April 16, 1861 in company with Rasmus Nelson, President of the Calliory Conference, and nine missionaries. I had just two weeks to get ready for the journey. Had I stayed in Denmark after those two weeks or until May first, I would have had to join the army. Father borrowed money and helped me to get off. We crossed the ocean on a sail ship called the "Monarch of the Sea". It carried 1100 passengers and was nine weeks on the water. We lived on hard tack, pork, coffee, and sugar. I drove an ox team across the plains for Captain Hopkins' Company. We had a good time and lived high. Mrs. Hopkins made butter by putting cream in the churn and allowing it to be jolted around in the wagon all day. At night the butter was there. Our company was a Mormon Company and we arrived in Salt Lake in October 1861. After I arrived in Salt Lake I worked for Thurstons for two years. Captain Hopkins recommended me for the job. I earned $150.00 the first year that I worked. Mrs. Thurston was just like a mother to me. My father, mother, and brothers came to Utah in 1862 the year after I made the journey from Denmark. Two years after my arrival in Salt Lake, I married Anna Barbara Feltman in the endowment house in Salt Lake by Heber C. Kimball. We lived in Salt Lake about six years and then moved to Skull Valley where we lived four years. In the spring of 1872 we moved to Richmond where the remainder of my life has been spent. For seventy five years I have been a member of the Mormon Church and have been ordained a seventy in the Priesthood." (Copy in possession of Christena Richards Christensen - Feb. 2015)

The Life Story of Stella Cora Hill Hunt

Contributor: DeeDee Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

Daughter of William Henry Hill, Jr. and Christina Sophia Johnson Hill. Wife of Purcell Byron Hunt From a taped conversation between Stella and Don and Billie Hunt. Transcribed by Jennifer Hunt Johnson - 2002. "I was born in Ora, Fremont, Idaho on October 12, 1900. There isn’t any such place as Ora now, but it was close to Ashton—about ten miles away, where we had to go buy groceries. My sister, Leona, married Norman Kent and her mother-in-law brought us our mail. There was a church house with one room in Ora. We also had a tithing building where you could take anything—grain, butter, anything you had. Then we had a schoolhouse that had two rooms in it. Sometimes, if we had enough kids, we had two teachers. Once we only had one and he taught from the first through the eighth grade. The Hunts lived down not too far from us. Purcell went to school with Lavon, my older brother. That’s where we were married because I knew the bishop’s wife. ...
