Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 093
Description like Virginians, F. F. V. Virginians, too; and he rode like a Virginian-born, which he was,-on a black horse that would have made President Grant envious. The pretty daughter in her gray dress, and purple cloth jacket braided with black, was as much of a little lady as any belle of the James or Rappahannock River plantations, and as much of a tart little copperhead, too! The majority of the American-born women I met in Utah were Northern in feeling. Our party broke up soon after supper, most of its members going to meeting; but as I found that Miss Julia's hospitality had warmed the large bed-room set apart for me, and provided a plentiful s upply of towels to relish the delicious soft water of Beaver, I preferred giving the children a thorough bathing be- fore the brightly-blazing fire, and then writing the valuable notes I have referred to before seeking my own rest. In the morning I heard noises outside, and going to the window saw about twenty Indian warriors dismounting from their horses; the leader conferring with Bishop Macbeth, at whose order the gates of the tithing-yard were thrown open, and-shall I use the civilized phrase? -a Committee of savage citizens proceeded to demolish half a haystack, carrying out armfuls of hay, and throwing it down before the horses of the band, now picketed in front of the yard. The summons to breakfast came, and the fair Julia was just lator, probate judge, member of the Constitutional Convention in 1895, and a colonel in the Iron County Military District. Murdock was also in strumental in founding an academy in Beaver that bore his name. His first wife was Almira Lott. The other wives were Mary Ellen Wolfenden and May Bain.
