Title Eliza
Description with fresh baked goods, home churned butter and fresh milk. They united as a family, Henry, Esther, Eliza, John and the children trying to run a farm or piece of ground which was enough for a cow, a garden and a few trees, which were planted after a hard day's work was done. Manual labor was the mode of life, as machinery was far too expensive and scarce. They all participated in the arts of knitting, carding, weaving and spinning, after the wool was cleaned or washed. The candles were made from tallow. Eliza, being a very good seamstress, made all their own clothes, rag rugs, caps, stockings and quilts. Much of this was done after dark by candle light. Esther spent much of her time helping the sick and de-livering numerous babies, as this was all in the field for which she was trained. Henry's greatest asset was faith in God and a desire to do His will. Therefore he steadfastly accepted his job at the Temple and continued his work with a will that never faltered. He was always happy as he sat day in and day out for long periods of time chiseling rock for the Temple. Workers watched him with pride and with a little awe and confusion as to how diligently he sat, patiently and without complaint, chiseling rock, watching the progress of the majestic edifice as each rock he cut helped to take form in the massive structure. There were times when his fellow workers would look at Henry's one remaining leg and comment on his abilities and persistence. Henry laughed good naturedly and said, "Look you now, I won't always be like this. On the resurrection morning, when my grave comes open, I'll take the first boat to England and get my leg. It is promised in the Good Book that our God will make us whole and again perfect, then I'll race the best of you." -75-
