Brief History of William Pitcher

Colaborador: ksturgess56 Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

William Pitcher was born 28, August I851 in Shindham, England. He was the son of John Pitcher born in March 1816, at Shindham, England; and Rebecca Brown born 1818 at Writhamon, Norfolk, England. John was the son of Edward Pitcher born 7, September 1777, at Shindham, England; and Elizabeth Germany born 1785 in England. Rebecca Brown was the daughter of James Brown born 1784 at Writhamon, Norfolk, England.; and Elizabeth Wright born June 1794 at Westley, Suffolk, England. William had four sisters and six brothers. They are as follows;- James born 24 June 1837; Mary born 26 January 1839; Edward born 1, November 1840; Alice Jane born 23, October 1842; John born 4 March 1845; Effie born January 1847; George born 11, June 1849; William born 28, August 1851; Elizabeth born 9 September 1855; and James born 27 May 1860. The Pitcher family lived in a rented home and owned no property and because of the absence of a school to which they could afford to send their children, the older boys and girls in the family had little or no chance to learn to read or write. The Pitcher family were of the poorer class. The father and his sons were all hired-help on nearby farms. William remembers his mother putting up lunches at night for all five boys so they could be out at 5:30 in the morning. The Church of England. was near and the children were required to go to church. The Pitcher family joined the church, though we do not know the exact date this occurred, when the gospel was preached to them by the Elders . After they held membership in the church for sometime they became dissatisfied and lukewarm and finally withdrew. During the time that William's parent s were out of the church they visited other churches with the idea of joining one of them, but they found nothing in any of them that satisfied their longing for religion. When WIlliam's younger sister Elizabeth was six or seven years old the missionaries again came into their neighborhood. Elizabeth had been afflicted with fits for some time and other members of' the family had various afflictions. When the Elders came back into the neighborhood they were welcomed again into the home of the Pitchers and the members of the family re-baptized. From that time on Elizabeth never had another fit. They considered this a special blessing from the Lord that she was healed of this serious affliction. After this their home became the headquarters for the Mormons in Shindham. William told his children often of the Mormon meetings that were held at their home. The missionaries, when they came to town came to Pitchers first, and were always made welcome. Many missionaries were made to rejoice in the splendid cooking of sister Pitcher. So in the year of 1867, William and his family accepted the gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He was baptized by William ****. A year later in 1868, William and George, his brother, came to America. This was 18 months be- fore the other members of his family came to America. William was just 17 (seventeen ) years old and George was nineteen. They arrived in Utah and worked on the railroad before it got into Ogden, Utah. It was while they worked in this camp that they got lice on them. William said that he would sit on the river bank and pick the lice off his clothing before washing them in the river. When the Pitcher family first came to America they lived with the Ladle family in Farmington.
