Title The Miles
Description Ap replied, "Why? Why bother at all? What difference can it make? You're a good guesser!" V/ill looked at Ap and said, "When we have more time I'll tell you why. In the meantime, think about it. Please." Ap nodded his head. He felt honored to be a member of this first company of pioneers. He had been asked to drive a wagon for Brother Kimball, Ap was a handsome man, well above average height; indeed, he was larger in all wayo than mo3t men. He was robust, with dark hair and almost black eyes that seemed to see everything, strong, jovial, fun-loving, sincere cjxd, above all else, devoted to his religion - The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Since being baptized, April 11, 1847, in Hauvoo at the age of 22 he had given many kinds of service - as a missionary, a member of the Hauvoo Police, a body guard to Joseph and Hyrum Smith - and had performed numerous other acts of kindness and helpfulness. He loved his family. When they vfere forced to leave Nauvoo, he helped his father, mother, three brothers and sister establish a home at Winter Quarters, a temporary stopping place for the Saints on their way to the West. As supplies became very low, he said, "Pa, I've built a wagon. I'll take it back to Missouri and trade for sone food." His father replied, '"That's a dangerous undertaking, but we need things so bad, I hope you'll be in time to save us from starvation. May the Lord bless you and keep you safe." Ad was determined, "I'll be back with something for all of us to eat. I hope I'll be in time, too." He went to Missouri, traded the wagon for flour, meat, vegetables, and other food-stuffs, but he was . too late to save his mother, who had died and been ¦buried before his return. His sis, Sophonia, died 98
