Biography of Joseph Abisha Stubbs

Contributor: misbach Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

Joseph Abisha was born 4 Oct 1871 in the family home on 7th West and 5th South, Provo, Utah. He was the youngest child of Richard and Ellender Wyer Stubbs. He was named after his grandfather Abisha Wyer. In his youth he worked on the family farm with his father. He was an accomplished athlete, winning several awards for his efforts in high and broad jumping, etc. He married Phillipa Moyle in the Salt Lake Temple on 2 Jan 1895. Their first little brick home was built and ready to move into when they were married. It was located just south of his parents home on 7th West and 5th South. Living next to his aged parents, he was able to help care for them, whom he loved dearly. Their first little baby girl Percilla was born on 6 August 1895 at the home of her grandfather Henry Moyle in Alpine, Utah. She only lived one day, and was buried in Alpine in the Moyle lot. The next six children were all born in the little home on 7th West and 5th South: (2) Joseph Earl born 31 July 1896, (3) Rhea Ellender born 28 Feb 1898, (4) Sylvia Vilate born 26 Jan 1900, (5) Henry Moyle born 14 Jan 1902, (6) Richard Virge born 5 May 1904. In the fall of 1904 the family moved down on a farm on 11th West and 10th South to a larger frame home where three other children were born: (7) Claris Lucile born 1 Apr 1906, (8) Carol Bernice born 6 Sept 1908, and (9) Zelta Merle born 11 Oct 1910. The family had started to build a new large brick home on the farm when Joseph Abisha died on 12 Sept 1911. This home was finished and the children all grew to adult age and were married. "Aunt Finnie" as most friends called Phillipa, lived in her home until she died 8 May 1952. Joseph Abisha was a member of the Provo Second Ward and was baptized 15 July 1879. For many years he was a member of the ward choir, president of the Elder's Quorum, and a member of the Old Folks Committee. He was a member of the Provo Fire Department. His love and devotion as a husband and father, along with his wonderful prayers and advice in his home will always be remembered by his children. Ten of his grandchildren have fulfilled missions. He died from a broken appendix, and he is buried beside his wife in the Stubbs lot in the Provo City Cemetery. Block 4 Lot 80, East of 1st East, between 3rd and 4th North. His posterity numbers to this date, Nov 1964, 9 children, 26 grandchildren, 62 great grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. Informant - daughter Rhea Adamson.

Joseph A. Stubbs was 14 years old when Louis Pasteur successfully tests his vaccine against rabies on Joseph Meister, a boy who was bitten by a rabid dog. Louis Pasteur was a French biologist, microbiologist and chemist renowned for his discoveries of the principles of vaccination, microbial fermentation and pasteurization. He is remembered for his remarkable breakthroughs in the causes and prevention of diseases, and his discoveries have saved many lives ever since. He reduced mortality from puerperal fever, and created the first vaccines for rabies and anthrax.

He is best known to the general public for his invention of the technique of treating milk and wine to stop bacterial contamination, a process now called pasteurization. He is regarded as one of the three main founders of bacteriology, together with Ferdinand Cohn and Robert Koch, and is popularly known as the "father of microbiology".
