Noah Thomas married Mary Dickerson Dudley on 24 December 1837 in Caldwe l l County, Missouri. Their first child, Mary Jane, was born on 25 Octob e r 1838 on the night of the Crooked River Battle when David Patten was k il led. In the winter of 1838 Noah and his family with the rest of the Sa int s moved to the state of Illinois where Noah helped build the city o f Nauv oo. Here there second child Lucinda Harris was born on 10 Septembe r 1840 . On 8 July 1842 their third child Emma Melissa was born. When th e Prophe t Joseph was martyred, they were living on a small farm in the c ountry no t far from Nauvoo. Noah was sick in bed with a high fever at th e time.

Noah's wife, Mary Dickerson Dudley, died from complications of childbir t h on March 1, 1845, and was taken to Nauvoo for burial. This left Noa h wi th three small girls to care for, Mary Jane, Lucinda Harris and Emm a Meli ssa. (Noah Thomas Guymon was Elaine Matson Reschke’s other secon d great-g randmother.)

In 1850 Mary Jane crossed the plains with her father and twp sisters i n A aron Johnson's Company and arrived in Salt Lake on the 12th of Septem be r of that year. Her father took the three girls South and settled in A mer ican Fork where he built his first home. Mary Jane was almost twelv e whe n the house was finished and her father, her Uncle Matthew Caldwel l an d a Brother Adams left to go to Salt Lake to work to get provision s for t he families. Brother Chipman was left to watch over them while th ey wer e gone. The following is the story about Mary Jane and her sister s as pas sed down through the generations.

Just before the girls’ father left for Salt Lake, Emma could not hold b ac k the tears. She ran to her father and said, "Please don't go. What i f so mething bad happens? You might never see us again." "Mary Jane wil l watc h over you," her father said, "and you can help her with the house keepin g while I'm gone." He explained why they had to go, to get money f or th e winter's supply of food. Emma dried her tears and nodded that sh e under stood. Her father told the girls to watch for Indians who would s teal any thing they could get their hands on. "Be sure to bring in the a x if you s ee them coming. And come into the house and bolt the doors an d windows. D on't let them in. Sister Caldwell will stop by now and the n to see how yo u are doing. And don't forget your prayers. The Lord wil l help you whenev er you need Him if you have faith."

The day after the men left, Chief Walker with his band of braves came a n d pitched their tents along the river bottom. Brother Chipman talked wi t h Chief Walker and the Chief ordered his braves not to molest the settl er s, but some were very annoying coming into cabins and helping themselv e s to anything they could find.

The men were gone for several weeks, but Sister Caldwell stopped by eve r y few days to see how they were doing. Mary Jane kept her sisters busy . S he taught them to make candles, to cross stitch and to embroider. Jus t be fore their father was due to return, they busied themselves cleanin g th e house. Emma shook rugs, Lucinda washed the curtains, and Mary Jan e scru bbed the floor. As Emma was outside shaking a rug that was almos t bigge r than she was, she saw a cloud of dust on the horizon. She wen t into th e house and told her sister she thought it was from buffalos. M ary Jane k new it was not buffalos but a band of Indian braves looking fo r trouble . She scooted her sisters into the house, barred the windows an d door an d assured her sisters they were safe. Then Emma turned to Mar y Jane and s aid, "You forgot to bring in the ax like Papa said." Mary Ja ne decided i t would take too long to unbar the door which had taken al l their strengt h to secure, so she decided to go up the chimney. As he r sisters helped h er up the wide chimney, she said, "After I'm up take t he kettle off the h ook so I won't have any trouble getting back down." W hen Mary Jane got t o the top of the roof, she slid down and jumped the t hree feet to the gro und. She ran to the wood pile and grabbed the ax jus t as the Indians wer e headed her way. Putting the ladder up against th e roof, she climbed u p again, tugging and pulling at the heavy ax. The n she pulled the ladde r up with her. When she got to the chimney, she dr opped the ax down and E mma dragged it into a corner. Then Mary Jane star ted to climb down the ch imney, but she lost her footing and fell. As sh e fell she caught her thig h on the big hook that had held the kettle whi ch Lucinda had obediently r emoved. The hook went clear through her leg w ith her back and shoulders r esting on the hearth. Her sisters were unabl e to lift her off and Mary Ja ne soon became unconscious.

By now the Indians were circling the house, screaming and yelling. Lucin d a and Emma were crying, not knowing what to do. Then Emma stopped cryi n g and said, "Lucinda, let's pray like Papa told us to do if we got int o t rouble." They both knelt down and started praying. As they were prayi ng , one very large painted Indian broke through a window and two other s bro ke through the door, tomahawks raised. When they saw the girls pray ing an d Mary Jane caught on the hook, they lowered their tomahawks, wen t to Mar y Jane and gently lifted her off the hook. By now, their Chief w as at th e door. He said something in Ute to his braves and they rode of f on thei r ponies. The Chief helped the girls dress Mary Jane's leg an d wrapped he r in a blanket. One young buck gave the girls a beaded ban d for their wri sts, but when he saw the ax in the corner he went to it a nd felt the shar pness of the blade. The Chief gave a harsh command and t he buck put the a x down.

At this time Mary Jane's father and the others were returning to Americ a n Fork having arrived at the halfway point. Suddenly, a man came gallop in g toward them and told them the Indians were on the warpath becaus e a whi te trapper had killed one of their braves. "I'm on my way to Sal t Lake t o get some men to help hold 'em off. They're burning cabins as t hey go an d we need help!" Then he rode off. Fearing for the lives of the ir familie s, Noah and his two friends left their pack horses at a nearb y cabin an d rode as fast as they could. When Mary Jane's father neared t he cabin an d saw Indian ponies the hair on his neck bristled. With gun i n hand, he j umped from his horse and entered his cabin. What he saw wa s hard to belie ve. There was a fat and dirty Indian squaw who had been o rdered to stay w ith the girls until their father returned. Nothing had b een taken.

Noah Thomas Guymon had taught his daughters well. Their faith in the Lo r d and in prayer had saved them from possible death. As he held them i n hi s arms, tears welled in his eyes in gratitude. Even though the India ns ha d caused considerable damage to other settlers' cabins during the t ime th e Guymons lived there, not once were they ever molested by the Ind ians. O nce each year the old Ute Chief with his squaw and two other brav es broug ht gifts to Mary Jane, Lucinda and Emma. Mary Jane had the sca r throughou t her life. (Mary Jane Guymon Matson was Elaine Matson Reschk es father’ s maternal grand-mother.)
