Friday, 28.--1 a.m. The Governor said the matter sh o u l d b e investigated, and that there was a great respon si bi li ty r esting upon him. He also said he would sen d a me sse nge r wit h an express for Dr. Richards, and wro te an o rde r fo r the c itizens of Nauvoo to defend themse lves.

He then went to the public square, and advised all w h o w e r e present to disperse, as he expected the Mormon s w ou l d b e so exasperated that they would come and bur n th e to wn , wh ereupon the citizens of Carthage fled i n all d irect ion s, an d the Governor and his posse fled t owards Q uincy , an d did n ot consider themselves safe unt il they h ad rea che d Augusta , eighteen miles distant fro m Carthage.

Captain Singleton, of Brown county arrived in Cartha g e f r o m Nauvoo with his troops.

About 8 a. m. Dr. Richards started for Nauvoo with th e b o d i es of Joseph and Hyrum on two wagons, accompanie d b y th e i r brother Samuel M. Smith, Mr. Hamilton, an d a gua rd o f e ig ht soldiers who had been detached for t hat purp ose b y Ge ner al Deming. The bodies were covere d with bush es t o kee p the m from the hot sun. They wer e met by a gre at as sembla ge o f citizens of Nauvoo, on M ulholland Stree t, abo ut a mi le ea st of the Temple, abou t three p. m. un der dir ection o f th e city marshal.

The City Council, the Lieut.-General's staff, Major.

When the procession arrived, the bodies were both tak e n i n t o the Nauvoo Mansion. The scene there cannot be d es crib ed.

About eight or ten thousand persons were addresse d b y D r . W illard Richards, William W. Phelps, Esquire s Wood s a n d Rei d of Iowa, and Col. Stephen Markham. Dr . Richar ds a dm onishe d the people to keep the peace, sta ting tha t he h a d pledge d his honor, and his life for th eir goo d conduc t , when th e people with one united voic e resolve d to tru s t to the la w for a remedy of such a h igh-hande d assassin at ion, and whe n that failed, to cal l upon Go d to avenge t he m of their wro ngs.

O, Americans, weep, for the glory of freedom has departed!

When the bodies of Joseph and Hyrum arrived at the Man s i o n , the doors were closed immediately. The people we r e to l d t o go quietly home, and the bodies would be vie we d th e n ex t morning at eight o'clock.

Dimick B. Huntington, with the assistance of Willia m M a r k s and William D. Huntington, washed the bodies fr om h e a d t o foot. Joseph was shot in the right breast, a lso u nd e r th e heart, in the lower part of his bowels an d th e rig h t side , and on the back part of the right hip . On e bal l ha d com e out at the right shoulder-blade. Co tto n soake d in c ampho r was put into each wound, and th e bod ies lai d out wi th fin e plain drawers and shirt, wh ite ne ckerchie fs, whit e cotto n stockings and white shro uds. (G ilbert Go ldsmith w as doork eeper at the time).

After this was done, Emma (who at the time was pregna n t ) a l so Mary (Hyrum's wife) with the children of the m ar ty re d Pr ophet and Patriarch, were admitted to see th e bo die s . On fi rst seeing the corpse of her husband, Em ma sc ream e d and fel l back, but was caught and supporte d by Di mic k B . Huntingto n. She then fell forward to th e Prophet 's f ac e and kissed h im, calling him by name, a nd begge d him t o s peak to her onc e.

Relatives a nd particul ar f riends were also p ermitte d to view the re mains durin g th e evening.

Saturday 19.--At 7 a. m. the bodies were put into the c o f f i ns which were covered with black velvet fastened wi t h b ra s s nails. Over the face of each corpse a lid wa s hu ng w it h b rass hinges, under which was a square of g las s to pr ote ct t he face, and the coffin was lined wit h whi te cambr ic . The c offins were then each put int o a roug h pine box.

At 8 a. m. the room was thrown open for the Saint s t o v i e w the bodies of their martyred Prophet and Patr iarc h, a n d i t is estimated that over ten thousand perso ns vi site d t he r emains that day, as there was a perfec t livin g str ea m of pe ople entering in at the west doo r of the M ansio n an d out a t the north door from 8 a. m . to 5 p.m. , at wh ich h our a re quest was made that th e Mansion shou ld be cl eared , so tha t the family could t ake their farew ell loo k at th e remains.

The coffins were then taken out of the boxes into the l i t t l e bedroom in the northeast corner of the Mansion, a n d t he r e concealed and the doors locked. Bags of sand w er e th e n pl aced in each end of the boxes, which were na ile d up , a n d a mock funeral took place, the boxes bein g pu t int o a h ea rse and driven to the graveyard by Will iam D .

General Notes (Husband)

[Descendants of Thomas Durfee by Charles L. Durfee - charlesldurfee.GED]

Elizabeth and Jabez had no issue.

Most of this family were members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Mormons.

When the U. S. 1820 census of Lenox, Berkshire County, MAdison County, NY, was taken Jabez's family was 1 male 10-16, 1 male 16-18, 1 male 26-45, 2 females under 10, and 1 female 26-45. The males 10-16 and 16-18 could be nephews, cousins or hired help.

According to the 1860 census George was born in Ohio, in 1823, so Jabez probably moved from New York, to Ohio 1820-1823.

When the U. S. 1830 census of New London (Ruggles Twp.) Huron County, OH, was taken Jabez's family was 1 male 5-10, 1 male 30-40, 2 females under 5, 2 female 5-10, 2 female 10-15, and 1 female 30-40. Living very nearby were his brothers Edmund and Perry.

On June 7, 1835, the Mormons gathered to celebrate the near completion of a new Temple in Kirkland, OH. Among those blessed for their work on the Temple were Edmund Durfee, his brothers James and Jabez and Edmund's son Edmund, Jr. At this same time Edmund Durfee, Junior was ordained an elder.

The information on Jabez's second wife is from Mrs. Jennifer Boger of Montclair, Essex County, NJ, in 1985. She cites as her source the Marriage Records of Clay County, MO, 1822-1852. According to Marriage Index, Selected States, 1728-1850, Clay County, MO, Family Tree Maker, Marriages Bundle CD Rom # 227, Jabez Durfee and Elizabeth Brackenburg (Brackenbury) were married March 3, 1834, in Clay County, MO. She was the widow of Joseph Brackenbury.

When the U. S. 1840 census of Hancock County, IL was taken Jabez's family was 1 male 5-10, 2 males 10-15, 2 males 15-20, 1 male 40-50, 1 female 15-20, and 1female 40-50. If Electa did die in 1834 it would appear that Jabez remarried and the 40-50 year old female was his second wife. Living very nearby were his brothers Perry and Edmund and his nephew Perry Durfee, son of his brother James.

Jabez was listed on the 1842, Nauvoo, Illinois Tax Index. From Ancestry.com, January 2000.

Jabez's third marriage to the widow of his brother Edmund is from a biography of Edmund and Lana in the LDS Archives in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, UT.

General Notes for Child Eliza Jones

[mytree.FTW]

In 1886 Eliza visited her fathers home in Hanson, KT Need to check the birthplace. She got sick of Typhoid Fever and called in the children to tell them how happy she was and asking them to meet her in heaven. She embraced each child and seemed to pray silently for them. Then with a faint whisper, "Bless God," she was gone. She had previously asked her husband "Lum" that on the rock at her grave there be only her name, the dates, and Heb. 12:14 "Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord."
