      Noah Thomas was fortunate in having a father who taught him how to work o n the farm and accept responsibility. His father was also a school teache r so Noah also received some schooling, which many young people weren't a ble to get. He also learned about livestock. In 1826 the family moved t o Edgar County, Illinois. While there, his older brother, James, returne d from a trip with the news about a new church that was different from th e others. When he finished telling about the church, their father said th at it was what they had been looking for. All the family, who were old en ough, were baptized. From this point on, the family endured all the perse cutions that the saints went through. They moved to Nauvoo to be with th e main body of the Church. Noah had married Mary Jane, and it was here th at she died at the birth of their second child. In 1850, Noah, his two wi ves and their children, left to make their way across the plains to Uta h . They settled in American Fork with some other families. Theirs was th e first home erected there. Noah worked hard helping others get started . He and some others went to Salt Lake to work so they could get supplies . In the fall of 1851, they moved to Springville where his children wer e able to attend school. In 1852, he was called on a mission to England . He returned in 1855. After his fourth marriage, he moved his family t o Fairview in Sanpete County in 1863, and from there to Fountain Green, t hen to Castle Valley. They seem to have moved around quite a bit. He ha d one wife in Huntington and one in Orangeville and visited them both, bu t lived in Orangeville where he eventually died at the age of 92.

Noah's father was a goo d farmer and schoolteacher and Noah received a rounded basic education i n both.

      In the early spring of 1826 the family moved to Edgar County, Illinois, w here they lived a rather peaceful life until 1836 when James, Noah's olde r brother, came home from a trip, which changed their entire future. He t old the family of a new church; different from any they had ever known. W hen James finished his story, his father said, “Jim, this is the gospe l of Jesus Christ. It is just what we have been looking for.” Noah, Jam es, his youngest brother, four sisters, and his parents joined the churc h soon after that. Noah was baptized 2 March 1836.

      Noah Thomas knew the Prophet Joseph Smith and acted as one of his bodygu a rds. He told his children of Joseph's experience in the Sacred Grove an d how they would eventually be driven from their homes. He bore his testi mony at a conference in Orangeville telling of a meeting he attended cond ucted by Brigham Young.

      Noah Thomas married MARY DICKERSON DUDLEY on 24 December 1837 in Caldwel l County, Missouri. Their first child, Mary Jane, was born on 25 Octobe r 1838 on the night of the Crooked River Battle when David Patten was kil led. In the winter of 1838 Noah and his family with the rest of the Saint s moved to the state of Illinois where Noah helped build the city of Nauv oo. Here there second child Lucinda Harris was born on 10 September 1840 . On 8 July 1842 their third child Emma Mellisa was born.

      When the Prophet Joseph was martyred, they were living on a small farm i n the country not far from Nauvoo. Noah was sick in bed with a high feve r at the 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 with three small girls to care for. Ten months later on November 24, 18 45 , Noah Thomas married MARGARET JOHNSON, daughter of Edward Johnson an d Sarah Brown Johnson, who became a good mother to the girls. To this uni on, were born four daughters and three sons: Margaret Elizabeth (29 Sep 1 84 6), married Hyrum Oscar Crandall; Martin Lewis Guymon (24 Jan 1849) di ed 21 Apr 1868; Harriett (11 Nov 1851) married Hyrum Oscar Crandall; Moro ni Guymon (30 Jul 1856) died 11 Aug 1856; Julia Luella (2 Aug 1857) marri ed George Maycock; Edward Wallace Guymon (15 Dec 1859) married Elizabet h Preator; Lillian Melinda (29 Mar 1862) married Louis Harvey Pearson.

      On 12 February 1847 Noah Thomas married a third wife, ELIZABETH ANN JONES , at Winter Quarters by Brigham Young. She was a daughter of James Nyle r Jones and Sarah Ann Manerly. To them were born: William Albert Guymo n ( 25 Apr 1849) married Marcellia Fowles; Clarissa Ellen (29 Aug 1851) m arried Amasa Scoville; Noah Thomas Guymon, Jr. (18 Apr 1853) married Caro line M. Hansen; Sarah Ann (30 Aug 1856) died 1858; Amy Amelia (18 Jan 185 9 ) married Alma Gardner Jewkes; Elizabeth Ann (8 Jan 1861) died age 8 ye ars.

      Noah Thomas, his three little girls from his first wife, his wife Margare t with her first two children, and Elizabeth (his third wife) and her lit tle son left Council Bluffs, Iowa, in the spring of 1850 to make their lo ng journey across the plains to Utah with Aaron Johnsons' Third Company . Also in the Company were his parents and their daughter Melissa who wa s still single. There were his sisters Barzilla and her husband Matthew C aldwell and their small children, and Polly and her husband Robert Lewi s Johnson and their small children.

      It took much preparation for the long journey, clothing had to be made r e ady, cows and oxen had to be trained and wagons had to be loaded with s up plies. They were happy with the thought of going to Utah where they wo ul d no longer be persecuted by mobs. Traveling along the Missouri Rive r was the most pleasant part of the trip, then came the prairie land. Th e children drove the cattle and also gathered buffalo chips to make fire s when they camped for the night. There were good times and bad, but no m atter how tired they were they always sat around the campfire, after a ha rd day's journey, to sing songs of praise and enjoy each other's company . They finally arrived in Salt Lake Valley on September 8, 1850.

      Noah Thomas, Azamiah Adams, Henry Chipman and Matthew Caldwell were the f irst settlers in American Fork. History says that Noah Thomas built the f irst house there. They lived in a small wagon box, that was taken off th e wagon, and sat on the ground while building this log home. The roof wa s covered with small poles on which cane was laid. When the house was fi n ished, he went with his brother-in-law Matthew and Brother Adams to fin d work for food and supplies to carry them through the winter. They wer e gone three weeks. Adams' young son and Brother Chipman were the only ma le members left to protect their wives and children while they were away.

      The day after their departure Chief Walker and a large number of his Ind i an braves came and pitched their tents, or wickieups as they were calle d, near the little new homes which these settlers had just finished. Th e settlers were upset by their arrival so Brother Chipman went down to ta lk with the Chief. The Chief said they were friendly and that he and som e of his lesser chiefs were on their way to Salt Lake City to see and tal k with Brigham Young. The Chief said his Indian braves would hunt and fis h and gather some acorns and turn their horses on the low lands to feed . Nevertheless, the women and children were very much afraid. Some of th e Indians were very annoying. They would come into the cabins and help t h emselves to whatever they wanted such as milk or anything they could se e that they wanted to eat. As the cows had helped pull the wagons acros s the plains and had given milk all summer, they were dry now. These set t lers needed what little milk they got from the cows to soak the hard br ead they had left. Their provisions were getting scarce. They had haule d what they did have over one thousand miles in one wagon. When a big Ind ian brave would come into their cabin and pick up a pan of milk, drink wh at he wanted and then pass it to another Indian to finish drinking, the G uymon family knew they would have dry bread to eat. Still they were ver y thankful to their Heavenly Father for his protecting care over them, fo r they realized they could have all been killed and their belongs taken o r destroyed.

      Noah Thomas was able to work for one his friends, William Casper, while i n Salt Lake thrashing wheat, digging potatoes and hauling lumber from th e canyon. He also sold some things he had brought with him; thus when h e returned to American Fork he was able to obtain enough potatoes, corn a nd wheat to last throughout the winter. This was the last of November 185 0. They stayed in American Fork that first winter. It is believed that th e first child to be born in American Fork on August 28, 1851, was Clariss a Ellen, the second child of Noah's third wife, Elizabeth Ann Jones. Noa h and Elizabeth Ann had been married at Winter Quarters in February 1847 . In the late fall of 1851 Noah moved his family to Springville where th e children were able to attend school in a log house inside the fort.

      On October 1852 Noah Thomas attended General Conference of the Church i n Salt Lake City. At this conference he was called to go on a mission t o England. As soon as he could get proper clothing for the journey he lef t for his mission. He left in the company of Elder Spence Crandall, 9 Sep tember 1852 to go to Salt Lake to receive special instructions before sta rting their journey. There were one hundred Elders all leaving for missio ns to the nations of the earth. They left Salt Lake City 15 September i n five wagons and arrived at Fort Bridger on the 22nd. There they joine d a company in 22 more wagons. Orson Pratt, one of the twelve apostles an d Daniel Spence were in this group.

      He had a successful mission. Copies of letters he wrote state how succes s ful they were and how the Lord took such good care of the missionarie s th at went. Without purse or script, they did not want for food or a pl ace to lay their head. Noah was very grateful for the good care he had ha d and for the many converts made in England.

      In Noah Thomas' diary it says, "We have charted a ship named 'Juvants' an d it was to sail March 30th to bring 330 converts to America." On Apri l 1 , 1855, Elder Clover, who had been appointed president of the company , called a meeting in regard to the best policy for keeping good order. T hey divided the passengers on board into twelve wards, and Noah Thomas wa s appointed president of the First Ward. On April 6th they held a Gener a l Conference on board this ship and sustained the General Authorities o f the church. Many were sick during the journey. May 6, 1855 they reache d the mouth of the Delaware River, and they landed in Philadelphia at 10: 00 PM that night. They reached Atchison May 27th, and on May 28th they we nt to Mormon Grove.

      May 31st and June 1st and 2nd they organized for crossing the plains wit h Noah Thomas Sergeant of the Guard of the 2nd Company. June 14, 1855 the y started on their journey across the plains. The 10th of August they pa s sed Fort Kerney, and August 28th the camped at Fort Bridger. They arriv ed in Salt Lake City with many Saints and 58 wagons on September 7, 1855 . Noah Thomas reported to the church authorities and gave his full repor t of his mission and then hurried home to Springville to his family. He a rrived there September 10, 1855 after having been away almost three years . He was sick with mountain fever on his return and was ill for several w eeks.

      While in England, the Rowley home was always open to the elders. Here No a h Thomas became acquainted with the Rowley family and Louisa Rowley, th e oldest daughter. This Rowley family immigrated to Utah in 1856. On 2 M a rch 1857 Noah took LOUISA ROWLEY as his fourth wife. She was the daught e r of William Rowley and Ann Jewell Rowley. They were married by Brigha m Young in his office in Salt Lake City. Twelve children were born to thi s union: James W. Guymon, born 17 September 1858, died age 2 months Joh n Wesley Guymon, born 7 August 1860, married 1st Mary Ann Roper, 2nd Minn ie Nielsen David Rowley Guymon, born 21 February 1862, died age 24 year s Willard Richard Guymon, born 20 September 1864, married 1st Mary Ann Ro wley, 2nd Hattie Black, 3rd Ellen Lunt Owen Winnie Guymon, born 16 Apri l 1866, married 1st Ester David, 2nd Ada Sherman Thomas Henry Guymon, bor n 23 October 1869, died age 14 years. Anna Louisa Guymon, born 12 Octobe r 1870, married Edwin L. Gary Sarah Jane Guymon, born 21 October 1872, ma rried Azariah Brown Melissa Louella Guymon, born 31 May 1876, died ag e 7 years Laur a Eliza Guymon, born 7 April 1870, married Adelbert Brow n Franklin Noah G uymon, born 12 May 1883, married 1st Mary Daisy Turnbow , 2nd Cordelia Kestle

      Wednesday, May 20, 1857, the 51st Quorum of the Seventies was organized a t Springville, Utah, with Noah Thomas Guymon as its president. In 1863 N oah moved his family to Fairview, San Pete County, Utah. In 1867 they mov ed to Fountain Green, San Pete County, where he became counselor to Bisho p Robert L. Johnson, his brother-in-law. He held this position until 187 9 when he moved his family to Castle Valley. In September1884 the 81st Qu orum of the Seventies was organized in Emery County by Seymour B. Young w ith Noah T. Guymon as one of the Presidents.

      Noah moved Elizabeth Ann Jones and her family to Orangeville, Emery Count y and Louisa Rowley and her family to Huntington, Emery County. He and he r boys built the first log cabin in Huntington (Mountain Dale) from log s hauled from Huntington Canyon. While the home was being built, they liv ed in a "digout" which was dug from a clay hill with a leanto at the open ing. Poles were placed upright with willows placed across covered with mu d and leaves for a roof. Small windows were fashioned out of heavy grease d paper. An old tub served as a stove for cooking and for heat. After th e log cabin was finished Louisa gave birth to her twelfth child and Noah' s twenty-eighth.

      Noah spent part of his time in Huntington and part of his time in Orange v ille with his third wife until the Manifesto. He then moved to Orangevi lle and made his home with his third wife, Elizabeth Ann Jones.

      At the time of the Manifesto, one morning a neighbor came and told Loui s a that a soldier from the United States Army was in town looking for me n who were practicing polygamy. The neighbor said, You'd better keep you r children inside so they can't be questioned.” But Louisa needed somet hing from the store so she sent her youngest daughter Laura on the errand . She instructed her child to just say “I don't know” if anyone aske d her any questions. Sure enough, a soldier saw her and said, "Who is you r Dad, little girl?" "I don't know," Laura said. "Well, where do you live ?" he questioned again. "I don't know," came the answer. Two other questi ons were "Where is your father" and "what is your name," to which Laura s aid each time, "I don't know." Disgusted the soldier said, "Oh, you dum b little child," and he rode away.

      When Noah left his youngest family in Huntington, he left them with stoc k in the Huntington Co-op Store, where they sold everything from yard goo ds to molasses, pots, pans and farm machinery. Dividends were declare d o n the stock each January which kept the children in clothes. The farm , he left to the boys.

      Noah's declining years were spent in Orangeville, Emery County, Utah. Unt il a few months before his death he cared for a small garden and milke d a cow. He had lived an active life having helped organize a cooperativ e store in Fountain Green, Orangeville, and Huntington. He was successfu l with a mercantile business and with farming and livestock raising. He d ied on 7 January 1911 at the age of 92 in Orangeville, Emery County, Uta h and is buried there. He was the father of 28 children and many many gra nd children and great grandchildren.

      Monday, November 25, 1845
      Nauvoo, Illinois:

      Another cold day in Nauvoo. It was a day of several
      marriages.Luman Shurtliff married another wife, Altamira
      Gaylord, his wife's sister, who he baptized in 1844. They were
      married by Samuel Bent, a member of the high council. (Samuel
      Bent later presided over the Garden Grove settlement and died in
      1846.) The family moved into Mother Gaylord's home since she
      couldn't take care of herself. They arranged to take over all of her
      property in return for caring for her as long as she lived. Later, in
      1846, her non-member son, Thomas, persuaded her to not go
      west with the saints, but to go east. Soon thereafter she died.

      Alfred B. Lambson and Melissa Jane Bigler were also married.
      Alfred Lambson was later served a mission to the West Indies in
      1853. He died in 1905. President Joseph F. Smith married one
      of his daughters.

      Noah T. Guymon and Margaret Johnson were also married.
      Noah would be called to serve a mission to Europe in 1852,
      would return leading a company of saint to Utah in 1855, serve
      as a president of the 51st quorum of Seventy in Springville, Utah
      in 1857, the 81st quorum in Orangeville, Emery county in 1884,
      and died there in 1911.

      Thomas Bullock was still hoping to get his cow back (see Nov
      8), but another witness hadn't arrived yet to testify for him.

      Daniel and Elizabeth Browett had a son born to them named
      Moroni Browett. Daniel joined the church in England and was in
      charge of a ship of Mormon immigrants in 1841. He would later
      serve in the Mormon Battalion. As the Battalion was crossing
      over the Sierras, heading for Utah, Daniel was murdered by
      Indians, terribly mutilated at a place that took the name "Tragedy
      Spring."
