William James – 1856

JayneHayes1

William James and Jane Haynes, my 4th great-grandparents, traveled to the Salt Lake Valley with the James G. Willie Company. , arriving on 9 Nov 1856.  Sadly, William died on the way.

-William was born on 28 Feb 1808 at Eckington, Worcestershire, England to Lee James and Sarah Price.

-Jane was born on 1 Jan 1815 at Bricklehampton, Worcestershire, England to James Randall and Cecelia Haynes.  She was reportedly raised by her grandparents, likely her mother’s parents.  Here is a biography for Jane.

-William & Jane were married on 15 Jun 1835 at St. Nicholas Parish, Pinvin, Worcestershire, England.

First child, Sarah, was born on 13 Aug 1837 at Moore, Worcestershire, England.

-Second child, my 3rd great-grandmother Emma Jane, was born on 8 Jun 1839 at Pinvin, Worcestershire, England.  She later married Lorenzo Johnson.  HERE is the page for Lorenzo Johnson.

-Jane was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in December 1841, according to church ordinance records.

-Third child, Rueben, was born on 15 Jun 1842 at Pinvin, Worcestershire, England.

-Fourth child, Mary Ann, was born on 15 Dec 1844 at Pinvin, Worcestershire, England.

-Fifth child, Martha, was born on 6 Jun 1847 at Pinvin, Worcestershire, England.

-Sixth child, George, was born on 16 Jun 1849 at Pinvin, Worcestershire, England.

-Listed in the 1851 England Census were William & Jane with 5 children living in Pinvin, Worcestershire, England.  For some reason the oldest daughter, Sarah, was not listed with them.

-Seventh child, John Parley, was born on 12 Aug 1852 at Pinvin, Worcestershire, England.

-William was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on 29 May 1854, according to church ordinance records.

-Eighth child, Jane, was born on 16 Aug 1855 at Pinvin, Worcestershire, England.

-William & Jane and their 8 children emigrated to America on the ship, THORNTON, arriving in New York on 14 Jun 1856.  Unfortunately, little baby Jane had died on 10 Jun 1856 and was buried in the Atlantic Ocean.

-William’s family then traveled to Iowa and prepared to travel to Salt Lake in the company already mentioned.  This company encountered many hardships due to the lateness of the season.  During their trip, William died on 23 Oct 1856 and was buried near Rocky Ridge at Martin’s Cove in Wyoming.

HERE is an excellent chronology of the Willie company beginning with their departure from Liverpool and ending with their arrival in Salt Lake.

-William received his endowments and was sealed to Jane by proxy on 1 Mar 1857 in the President’s Office.  Jane didn’t receive her own endowments until 3 Dec 1859 in the Endowment House, according to church ordinance records.

-Jane was not found in the 1860 US Fed Census.  It was about this time that she married Mathew Maude and they had a son (William Moroni Maude) on 30 May 1862 in Salt Lake.  This new husband left Jane, so she and her new son reverted to the previous surname of James.

-Listed in the 1870 US Fed Census was Jane with two sons (Rueben & William) living in Provo, Utah, Utah.

-Listed in the 1880 US Fed Census was Jane and one son (William) living in Provo, Utah, Utah.

-Listed in the 1900 US Fed Census was Jane living in Provo, Utah, Utah.

-Listed in the 1910 US Fed Census was Jane with her widowed daughter (my 3rd great-grandmother, Emma) living in Provo, Utah, Utah.

-Jane died on 13 Aug 1911 and was buried at Provo, Utah, Utah.

    I so enjoyed your Jane James page. I too am her posterity and have so much love and respect for her. I have a pair of gloves that she made that were passed through my Grandmother Annie James Clark. She was Jane’s Grandaughter.
