      Story - "Angeline Avilda Champlin by Zitelle McClellan Snarr
      Angeline Avilda Champlin, daughter of Wm. Sisson Champlin and Mary Ring w as born 9 Jan.,
      1820 in Hartland, Windsor Co., Vermont, about 15 miles from the birth pla ce of the Prophet
      Joseph Smith. Wm. S. Champlin was baptized a member of the Church of Jesu s Christ ( L.D.S.)
      20 Sept. 1S32 and his wife, Mary Ring,,was bantized 11 Jan., 1833, makin g them the first of
      our progenitors to become affiliated with the new Mormon church.
      Jonathan Taylor Packer was born July 20, 1817 in Parry Township, Richl and County, Ohio.
      The Packer home was about 25 miles from Kirtland, Ohio. Jonathan was 18 y ears old when he
      joined the Church. In I836 he was living among the members in Kirtland, O Hio. In 1837 He
      married Sarah Ewell and on the 27 of August 1838 their little son Nephi S well Packer was
      born in Ray County, Missouri. Sarah died the 1st of June 1839 in Commerce , Hancock County,
      Illinois. Jonathan built himself and little Nephi a red brick house, th e best Home
      he ever owned, He declared.
      There in Nauvoo in 1840 Jonathan married Angeline Avilda Champlin wh o mothered little Nephi.
      Avilda, as she was known, and her parents were survivors of Hauns Mill Ma ssacre on Wed., Oct.
      31, 1838. A musket fired at th fleeing Avilda, 18 years old, singed her s leeve and the skirt of
      her dress. When the scooting began, Avilda's father ran into tHe blacksmi th shop. He was knocked
      to the floor and another man fell across his body. Covered with blood, h e feigned death which
      undoubtedly saved his life. Jonathan donated the labor of every tenth da y to help build tHe
      Kirtland and Nauvoo Temples. He and Avilda were endowed in the Nauvoo Tem ple the 29th of January
      1846. They were in Nauvoo when the Prophet and Hyrum were martyred...Avil da later told members
      of Her family that she witnessed tHe Mantle of Joseph fall upon Brigham Y oung and heard the
      voice of tHe Prophet come from the lips of Brigham Young. There was no do ubt in her mind that he
      was the one to lead the Saints to the Rocky Mountains.
      With all of their moves the family records were not quite perfect. The y didn't seem to have,
      the date of Avilda's baptism, so, on March 30, 1964 baptism was performe d for her to complete
      the record.
      In the course of time, Avilda gave birth to nine children
      Alonzo born in Nauvoo in 1841 died in 1917
      Lorenzo James " 1843 died in 1849 in Salt Lake City
      Sarah Elizabeth " 1845 died 9 Dec. 1845 at Winter Quarters
      Wm. Jefferson born 26 Oct. 1848 in Pioneer Fort in Salt Lake City, U tah died 1905
      Pleasant Deseret " 21 Feb. 1851 in Salt Lake City died in 1875 unmar ried
      Mary Angeline born 1852 in Salt lake City Married Chester Call, died 1 906
      Avilda Verona born 1855 in Salt Lake City, Died 1858 in Salem, Utah
      Leverna Sonora born 1858 in Spanish Fork, Utah, married Lorenzo Wrigh t 12 Apr. 1875 in
      Endowment House in Salt Lake City, Utah. Died 12 May 1926 in Pima , Ariz.
      Eve Ellen born 30 Sept I860 in Brigham City, Utah where she died 16 Ap ril 1862

      Jonathan was 30 years old, Avilda 28, their three little boys, Nephi, Alo nzo and Lorenzo were
      aged 9; 7; and 4; when they left Nauvoo May 26, 1848 to begin their tre k west. They would
      travel with Willard Snow's hundred, being part of toward Egan's ten, wit h the rear company of
      Brigham Young's Company. Avilda was three months pregnant. Nephi and Alon zo were old enough
      to walk, and walk they did. Jonathan was driver of one of the first fou r wagons that entered
      the Valley on August 31, 1848, again the first of our progenitors to com e to Utah.
      On Dec 13, 1857 Jonathan took a third wife, Christina Petrena Sundby , a thirty two year
      old Danish convert. She gave Jonathan four sons and one daughter:
      Joseph Alma born at Fort Herriman, Utah 11 Jan. 1859
      Felgar Jacob born 6 April 1861 at Brigham City, Utah
      Amasa Lyman born 16 Feb 1864, died the same year at Brigham City, Utah
      Amos Erastus bom 24 Dec. 1865 in Brigham City
      Martha Marie born 30 Mar I869 in Brigham City
      Avilda regarded the practice of poligamy as a law of God and she loved "A unt" Christina.
      They moved to Brigham City in I860. Avilda managed a boarding House to he lp out with their
      finances. Many spoke of her patience; her diligence. She made their soap , lye and their candles.
      Avilda's life seemed to be one move after another. Aunt Christina seeme d to remain in Brigham
      City. On Sept 2, 1872 Jonathan was sealed to his fourth wife, 29 year ol d Swedish born Helen
      Lindquist. They went to Cannonville, Garfield County, Utah where Jonatha n served as Bishop of
      the Ward and Helen died five years later. There were no children born o f this marriage.
      In May of 1884 Jonathan and some of his sons and their daughter Sonor a Wright and her husband
      were called to settle St. Johns, Arizona. Jonathan and Avilda went to Lay ton, Arizona
      where he operated a butcher shop. In 1885 his son-in-law, Lorenzo Wrigh t was killed by Indians
      in Solomonville, Arizona. Grandmother Avilda moved in with her daughter , Sonora, to help with
      her four children. The youngest child, Cora, was born three weeks after t he father was killed.
      Jonathan died the 29 of Jan 1889 and was burried in Layton or Safford , Arizona. The third
      wife Christina died Dec. 17, 1892 in Brigham City. On the 25th, of Sept . 1889 Avilda's daughter
      Sonora married Orville Morgan Allen in Poligamy and they immediately wen t to Old Mexico to live.
      Avilda went with them. She had a great influence for good on the lives o f her grand-children,
      especially my Mother, Mary Angeline Wright McClellan who always gave he r grandmother the credit
      for her great faith and the courage to go on in the face of life's diffic ulties.
      her great fait h and the courage t o go on i n the face of life's difficu lties.
      This is the best likeness of Angelina Avilda that we have ever Had. I t has been an inspire-
      ation to me this past year, so I decided I would provide a copy for my br other, sisters and
      Gerald & Margaret. The facts reccorded have been gleaned from various ske tches of the Packer
      Family. Avilda died in Colonia Juarez, Chuahua, Mexico January 7th, 189 3 and was burried there
      the following day on her 73rd birthday .

      God sifted Three Kingdoms to find pure seed to plant New England! M any connected
      with the best families in the old world, in comfortable and wealthy circu mstances left
      the land of birth and friends of their bosom, encountered persecution an d obstacles....
      braved the perils of the ocean in frail diminutive vessels, encountered h ardships,
      climate and still more savage foes... to found a government where they mi ght worship God
      after the dictates of their conscience. It would be hard to describe thei r suffering by
      cold, hunger and long winters, in miserable huts, sickness and death . . . intensified by
      treachery and hostile aboregines found in the country!

      Angelina Avilda Packer is a descendant of such stock, as we follo w the trail which
      led her with her families from New England to Nauvoo, across the plains t o the west. We
      could list many of her fathers who fought in the Revolutionary War. Amon g these would be
      Col, Joseph Champlin, grandson of the Emigrant Jeffrey, who was sighted f or bravery, when
      the ship which he commanded, prevented a British ship from landing at Sto nington Point,
      His son Joseph Champlin, lost all his property at Westerly, Rhode Island , through the
      continental money failure during the Revolution, He and his family migrat ed to Pomfret,
      Vermont (1776), walking most of the way, carrying their meager possession s. This was the
      birth place of her father, William Sisson Champlin.
      Through Katherine Washington, one of Angelina's Grandmothers, we cl aim kinship to
      our first president, George Washington; Nathaniel Gorham, whose name is a mong the signers
      of the Constitution of U,S,, is numbered among her kin. She is descende d from Capt, George
      Denison, and his two wives, Bridget Thompson and Ann Borodell, which sho w relationship to
      three of their children, which makes our relationship tripled. Miss Caulk ins (historian)
      says of them; “Our early history presents no character of bolder more C hivalous spirit and
      enterprise. He reminds us of the border chieftains of Scotland.....” Th e famous Indian
      interpreter and arbitrator with the Indians is Thomas Stanton, who arrive d in Virginia in
      1635. He married Anna, daughter of Thomas and Dorothy Lord, who became th e parents of Rev.
      James Noyes, author and educator of many religious books, was a ministe r of the Famous
      Road Church for 55 years. He was among the founders of Yale and Harvard u niversities. Many
      such families, founding fathers and colonizers of this great country we c an claim kinship
      because of ANGELINA AVILDA PACKER.

      We find among her descendants missionaries who number into the thousands , bishops, stake
      presidents, mission presidents. Her descendants could now people many war ds, stakes and
      missions, throughout the world!
