In 1874 the settlers reported a good harvest but expressed concern about a possible smallpox
epidemic. Nearly all school children were vaccinated. John Toone, painter, royal musician, and
community doctor, obtained vaccine in the following manner: when his young son, Richard, got
smallpox, John took the pox germ and inoculated a calf, from which he made vaccine. He
inoculated sixty persons, thus helping to end the epidemic.

In 1877 grasshoppers again threatened to destroy crops, but Croydon had its own little miracle
of the gulls. Seagulls descended to eat vast hordes of the insect pests. There were then 173
inhabitants in Croydon, about sixty students in public school, four stores, a restaurant, a
sawmill, and a very rich coal mine. This must have been the "golden age" of Croydon.

A Brief Life History of the Life of Sarah Emma Toone Holling Portland Oregon 6 March 1939

Sarah Emma Toone was born in Salt Lake City, Utah July 9, 1866 the first child of 12 children born to William Henry Toone and Hannah Webb who was sealed under the everlasting covenant. The remaining eleven brothers and sisters was born in Croydon, Morgan County Utah where the family went to live near the father of William Henry Toone. They had been called there on a mission by the church for colonization in the Weber Valley. William Henry Toone and his wife Hannah Webb both trace their ancestors back to the early English history. Her early life was spent in the beautiful valley of Croyden north east of Morgan in view of the Devils slide and the Devils Mirror.

As she grew older she went to Great Salt Lake City for schooling and work where she met her husband Marcus William Frisby Holling the son of Marcus Holling who was a secretary to Brigham Young, before he was sent on a mission to Holland to become the mission president.

After courtship they was married in civil marriage at Morgan Utah October 22, 1889 and was married under the covenant in the Logan Temple October 24, 1889. They made their home in Salt Lake City where her husband was employed as a machinist.

The first four children was born in Salt Lake City during which time she was active in Sunday
School, Relief Society and Religion Class work, and opening her home at all times for the entertainment of young people.

During the winter of 1900-01 her husband accepted employment in Portland Oregon and she came to Oregon and visited for a couple of months giving approval to moving her family to the Pacific Coast. She then returned to Salt Lake City, closed the home and returned to Oregon with her four children and sister Nettie who remained with her for several months.

After establishing a home in Portland they became active in church work and took an active part in all activities under the then existing branch organization. Her husband was a leader in
the branch on her return, and she immediately took part as Sunday School Teacher, Young Peoples Director and visited the poor and the sick and ministered to the saints in distress.

On January 18, 1903 the first Latter Day Saints Relief Society was organized with Sarah Emma Holling sustained as set apart as the first president with Katrina Westergaard and Mary Simmons as counselors. The first meeting was held in the home of the president on the North West corner SW 2nd and Grant streets January 20, 1903. The following meetings was held at the same home until a later date when they visited the various homes of the sisters and held their meetings.

The following extract from a letter will express int eh presidents own words her love for the saints which was written to a sister who was in distress, living some distance from Portland. "The Elders also our branch president said it would be well for me to write you, and assure you if my writing will be of any benefit to you in any way, I will take great pleasure in doing so. I realize that we, as sisters in the gospel of truth and rightousness can do much for each other in extending our love for one another in times of trial, and it is our duty to lend a helping hand to our sisters at all times. We are strangers; still I feel to draw near unto you in my desire to help you in any way that I can, even to exhorting you on in the great work that we are engaged in, that will eventually save and exault each and all of us that walk in fear and meekness before him, putting all our trust and energy to that one great end. I feel to bear you my testimony to the devinity and the truthfullness of the gospel; for I feel as sure that God lives as I do that I have a body of flesh and blood. We have a Relief Society organization here in Portland and have some very nice meetings. There are about 9 or 10 enrolled and we sisters meet in humbleness and the Lord does answer our prayers and pours out his spirit upon us, insomuch that we have the spirit of testimony bearing in our midst."

Before the sewing meetings was started the sisters constructed a silk patch work quilt with the names of the sisters worked on the squares and presented it at a surprise party to President Holling when she broke down with tears of appreciation and was unable to speak. This proved to be a very happy birthday party. The spread passed on to the older daughter Ximena who acted as secretary who was very pleased to receive it, and which is now the prized possession of the younger daughter.

Sister Holling's notes are complete with small details of early history of the Relief Society and branch activities, such as assistance given, calls on the sick at homes and hospitals, choir practice, cottage meetings business transacted, names of early saints that helped make church history in the Oregon district, and personal information which expresses the spiritual devotion with love and service that carried the work along.

The first death noted in these personal notes was a sister Lucretia Smith who passed away 9 June 1905 at the age of 72 years and was entured by Finley's Mortuary on June 11th the missionaries presiding at the funeral. The endowment work for sister Smith was done by Sister Holling in the Salt Lake Temple when she went to Utah for the burial of one of her sisters.

Another extract from these notes are quote " On January 31st 1908 myself and counselors met over town and purchased furnishings for the missionaries quarters, such as sheets, pillow cases, curtains, and bedspreads to the amount of $14.42. Feb. 3, 1908 I went to the missionaries headquarters and spent the day sewing and cleaning for them.

"Called on Brother and Sister Pratt and son Heber who informed me that he had been called on a mission to Germany."

UTAH PIONEERS EVIDENCE WILLINGNESS TO SERVE FLAG AND NATION
Patriotism in Utah is at its pinnacle of fervor, to judge by an incident which occurred in Salt Lake yesterday afternoon. Five patriarchal citizans went to the army recruiting station in the old Walker bank building and registered for service in the army upon call.

"We are minute men, " said one of them, "and we are ready at a moments notice, day or night, to serve our country. We have done military duty before and we are willing to do it again if need be. We simply want to show our patriotism at this time."

the names of the five men who enlisted, together with their ages, follows:

Edwin N. Austin , 77 Salt Lake
Hyrum P. Folsom, 76, Salt Lake
William Cooper, 77, Salt Lake
E. E. Rich, 77, Salt Lake
William H. Toone, 75, Croydon, Morgan County

Edwin N. Austin came west in 1846, year before the Mormon Pioneers settled in Utah. HE came to Utah from the coast in 1848. He acted as scout and Indian interpreter from 1858 to 1860, being able to speak Spanish and sever Indian tongues. Mr. Austin holds a captains commission received from Governor Durkee during the Indian wars in Utah and Idaho. He was born in Suffield, Conn,, and lives at 864 Wilmington Ave., this city. He is in the stock raising business.

Hyrum P. Folsom came to Utah in October, 1860, engaging in the carpenter business and in the industry of making brick. He did work on the tabernacle and the Salt Lake Theater and ahs erected many of the private homes of the city. Mr. Folsom was a member of teh Nauvoo legion and is still am ember of the association which perpetuates that organization's name. He was born in Buffalo, N. Y., and now lives at 553 South Third East street.

William Cooper came to Utah in 1866 as a miller and did milling work for Brigham Young and George A. Smith. He is proud of the fact that he has been a subcriber for the Tribune for forty four years. Mr. Cooper was born in Leeds, England and is now a retired merchant of this city.

E. E. Rich came to Utah in 1868 and is a well-known merchant in this city. He was born in Wiltshire, England, where he volunteered and served three years in the Queens Rifle. Since coming to Utah he has served with the Nauvoo legion. Mr. Rich was a member of the Salt Lake City Council in 1892-93, serving with that body when the first street paving was done here, when the gravity sewer was built and when the city and county building was begun. He resides at 760 West North Temple street.

William H. Toone came to Utah in 1852. He was a stone quarrier and supplied much of the stone that went into the erection of the Tabernacle, the Salt Lake Theater, and the old city hall. Mr. Toone was born in Leamington, Warwickshire, England and crossed the plains five times in assisting immigrants to reach this territory. He now resides at Croyden, Morgan County, where he is engaged in farming.

TOONE William Henry
 
436 According to contemporary records, Queen Elizabeth I of England (died
1603) was related to King Henry IV of France (died 1610) [Reference:
Thomas Rymer, Foedera 16 (1727): 20 (Henry IV, King of France, styled
"cousin")].

Were Queen Elizabeth I and King Henry IV related in the 5th degree at
least on one side? The answer: Yes, twice, in fact. Below please
find two charts which show their common descent from the French royal
family and also from the Counts of Saint Pol. In both instances,
Queen Elizabeth I and King Henry IV are 4th cousins, once removed.

446 If we put together what has been published about the mistresses of Edward
IV, we may get an interesting picture.

Cahiers de Saint Louis, page 880, gives Edward IV
by Elisabeth/Elizabeth Waite
1.Arthur
by NN
2.Grace
3.Elisabeth/Elizabeth, she married her cousin Thomas, 4th Lord Lumley
(he wasn't a Lord Lumley!!!)

The Plantagenet Encyclopedia, General Editor Elizabeth Hallam, page 160.
Arthur Plantagenet, died 1542. Illegitimate son of Edward IV of England and
Elizabeth Lucy, daughter of Thomas Wayte, a minor Hampshire gentleman. Their
affaire lasted from around Edward IV's accession in 1461 to his marriage to
Elizabeth Woodville in 1464.

The Complete Peerage Volume VIII page 63.
Elizabeth suo jure Baroness Lisle, married (2) 12 November 1511
Arthur Plantagenet, illegitimate son of Edward IV. His mother's name is
unknown; by some said to be the "Lady Elizabeth Lucy" by others the
notorious Jane Shore, and by others one Elizabeth Waite, he himself being at
first known as Arthur Waite.

Blood Royal, by Charles Mosley, pages65 and 166
He gives Edward IV nine legitimate children whereas Cahiers de Saint Louis
gives as a tenth legitimate child Brigitte 1480-1517.

One less legitimate child but one more illegitimate one. However,
uncertainty is certainly indicated.
Edward IV is said to have had (a) a bastard son (Edward, of Wigmore, died
young 1468) by Eleanor, daughter of the 4th Earl of Ormonde.
====somehow I doubt this one, as wasn't Eleanor Butler supposedly engaged to
Edward IV? An engagement (if there was one) which should render the children
by Elizabeth Woodville illegitimate?

(b) a bastard daughter (Elizabeth married Thomas Lumley and had issue) by a
woman referred to as "Lady Elizabeth Lucy" presumably wife of Sir William
Lucy who died in 1492 and (c) illegitimately either by Elizabeth (not
Jane) Shore (wife of William Shore, a London merchant) on whom he fathered a
bastard daughter Grace (living 1492, Or Elizabeth Waite;
===the link between Elizabeth Waite and what follows is, to me, not very
clear=====
4e.Arthur, surname originally Waite or Wayte, subsequently Plantagenet,
born circa 1470.

What have we got from this? That Arthur was known as Arthur Waite, may give
an indication that his mother was Elizabeth Waite/Wayte. Elizabeth Hallam's
book makes this Elizabeth Waite a Mrs. Elizabeth Lucy. The Complete Peerage
makes this Mrs. Elizabeth a Lady Elizabeth Lucy. "Blood Royal" makes Lady
Elizabeth Lucy also mother of Elizabeth (Lumley).

Elizabeth Hallam indicates as years of possible birth of the child(ren) of
Edward IV by Elizabeth Waite as about 1461 till 1464/5. "Blood Royal"
guesses that Arthur was born about 1470 and Richardson guesses "say 1475".
Richardson wants him to be as young as possible, because Arthur didn't marry
until 1511.

If Arthur was born in 1463 he would have been about 48 when marrying,
if he was born in 1470 he would have been 41, if born in 1475 he would have
been about 36.

However, we most not forget that he was in 1511 "only" the bastard brother
of the Queen, and also he married the widow of a disgraced man, disgraced
enough to be decapitated. And this, in my opinion, makes the age of Arthur,
when marrying, irrelevant, he could well have been 48 as easy as only 36.

For the children of Thomas Lumley and Elizabeth "Plantagenet", Richardson
seems to follow Burke's Extinct Peerage,
one son, Richard (Lord Lumley)
and three daughters
Anne (wife of Robert Ogle)
Sibyl (wife of William Hilton
Elizabeth (wife of Robert Cresswell)

Then follows a weird observation "Descendants (not traced)". Whose
descendants? Or, not traced by whom? Especially as earlier in his message he
notes that Gary Boyd Roberts indicated that there are American descendants
of Elizabeth Lumley.

Cahiers de Saint Louis, which Richardson has learned to appreciate, gives
the same three daughters but instead of one son, gives four sons. The last
son, Roger, is important as he is an ancestor of Prince Charles (See Paget
O24907).

That Richardson's remark "Descendants (not traced)" is ludicrous can also be
shown by the known acestry of just three of the children of Thomas and
Elizabeth Lumley (let's skip Roger, he has been shown to have descendants
till the present):

Richard Lumley
he is an ancestor of the later Earls of Scarborough, HRH Richard, Duke of
Gloucester, Dukes of Buccleuch, Dukes of Northumberland, Marquess of
Exeter, Marquess of Linlithgow, Marquess of Zetland

Anne Lumley
she is ancestor of HM the Queen, Lady Diana Spencer, Sarah Ferguson, Dukes
of Atholl, Bedford, Northumberland, Richmond, Earls of Harewood and Warwick

Sybil Lumley
she is ancestor of HM the Queen, Lady Diana Spencer, Dukes of Abercorn,
Buccleuch, Devonshire, Marlborough, Westminster, Northumberland and the last
Duke of Leeds.

Hope this is of some interest and helps.
As always, best wishes
Leo van de Pas

There seems to be confusion in surviving records between King Edward
IV's mistresses, Dame Elizabeth Lucy and Elizabeth Wayte. I suspect
the two women were separate and distinct individuals. King Edward IV
is alleged to have had issue by Elizabeth Lucy prior to his marriage
to Queen Elizabeth Wydeville in 1464. I presume that issue was King
Edward IV's bastard daughter, Elizabeth Lumley, who married in or
before 1477. Elizabeth Wayte's son, Arthur, on the other hand,
doesn't occur in records as an adult until 1501 and didn't marry until
1511. This suggests a rather wide gap in ages between the two
bastards, Elizabeth Lumley and Arthur Plantagenet. My best guess is
that Elizabeth Lumley was born say 1460/2 and that Arthur Plantagenet
was born say 1475.

If anyone has any corrections or additions to the list below, I'd
appreciate it if they would post them here on the newsgroup.

449 Hello,
I have typed the bio which Camille Wilde sent to me on Edwin Albert Wilde & wife Hannah Elizabeth Toone. I'll copy / paste here for you. Hope there are not too many typing errors. I assume Camille wrote this but it is not signed so I do not really know for sure.

More later.

Hannah Elizabeth Toone & Edwin Albert Wilde



The third girl was born to the Toone family on May 11, 1870. She was named hannah Elizabeth Toone.

She too, grew up and received her early education in Croydon. Elizabeth or Lizzie as she was called had a happy disposition and was always concerned with others. She was a very good homemaker.

During this time many miles away in Hilltop, Greasley, Eastwood, Nottingham England a son was born to Edwin and Anna Bradley Wilde on September 15, 1870. It is hard to imagine in that day and age that two people so far apart in miles could ever meet and fall in love and live happily in marriage for over 50 years, but it did happen.

Edwin Albert along with his parents and brother George Herbert and sister Anna Marie (Annie Fister) came to America and first settled in Como, Colorado. Little Edwin was seven years old at this timem.

Edwin’s occupation in England had been a coal miner, so that brought them to this little minning town. He found employment there. Father Wilde took out his naturalization papers at the Fairplay Court House as it was the county seat of Park County, Colorado. That is when he added the "E" to the Wilde name.

He remembered John Hopkin who converted and baptized him in England to the L.D.S. church and decided to go to Croydon and visit him. He fell in love with the Lost Creek and Croydon area and decided to plant his roots here.

We the posterity should always be grateful for his wise judgement for this move.

Edwin Albert and Hannah Elizabeth (Lizzie) were married on May 19, 1892 in Croydon, Utah. They were later endowed on June 3, 1903. They were both 22 years old.

Elizabeth worked very hard to "Make Ends Meet" (an old saying). Besides the household tasks she helped with the farm work and the animals. Often she helped with the hay harvest too. She always took the lantern at night and went out checking the gates and seeing if the animals were alright.

Their first baby died while they were living in Almy, Wyoming. Edwin had found employment working in the coal mines. He brought his baby boy to Croydon in a wagon . He stopped in Echo Canyon at the home of Tom Moore for the night. He was so very grateful for the hospitality shown to him as he was almost frozen himself. The baby was buried in the Croydon Cemetery.

They later moved back to Croydon to make their home.

Their other children were Lawrence Dare, Ann Marie, Altha Leola, another still born boy, Marcus Reed Toone, and Elizabeth (Bessie).

All of Lizzies babies were large and she suffered very ahrd births.

Edwin, George, (His brother) and father were partners up Lost Creek on a ranch located in Gildersleeve Canyon. He sold out to his father and brother for the ground in Croydon.

A very worrisome time occurred when their young son, Reed became critically ill. It was thought to be Meningitis. Many eyars later a Dr. Charles M. Swindler said "Not so, you had Polio." He could tell by the X-Rays that Reed had been taken for another condition that he was suffering with. He did recover though after many day of unconsciousness and left with paralysis in his legs. His folks nursed him back to health. He had to learn to walk again, as he was about five years old at this time. It was simply a miracle as there was little known medical facts on the disease of Poliomyelitis (Polio). His legs were never really stong again in his life time. He lived to be 93 and ˝ years of age.

This family raised two foster chidlren Echo Beery Boyce and Chester (Chink) Beery. They were brother and sister and were the step children of their daughter marie.

Grandmother and Grandfather may not have had all the conveniences that others had but they were truly happy.

Lizzie’s health began to fail as she had had diabetes for many years. This disease causes other complications.

It was decided that she shopuld spend the winter of 1947-48 with her daughter althea and Bill Branch in Ogden. While there she suffered a fall and broke her hip. She had good care and was admitted to the Dee Hospital. She passed away March 31, 1948 while she was hospitalized.

Grandfather spent nine lonely years without her. He loved her dearly and always spoke so kindly and respectfully of his dear wife.

Edwin kept working very hard. He loved to irrigate over the creek on a little piece of hay ground. He loved to read. His love for the Big League Baseball games made him so happy evevn if it were only to listen on the radio.

He suffered much with his eye sight because of the Cataracts that had formed there. He was operated on but had to wear very thick lenses after that. (It is very much different now as the doctors put in an implant lense and it has really become a simple operation.)

He went to a Bull sale in Octobver of 1957 and caught a cold. He really was sick with it. He suffered a few little mini strokes and went to stay with Aunt althea.

He passed away at her home in Ogden on November 14, 1957. He had a very good funeral with beautiful tributes paid to him.

Grandpa was a very bright man with a brillant mind and memory. He was a very good vet by taking a correspondence course. He saved many an animal for people in Croydon and the surrounding areas. He also assisted with medical advice and helped to deliver some babies in Croydon.

He had the most interesting stories to tell of the early days in Croydon. Some were humorous and others were sad. He was fun to be around and listen to. We really missed him.

450 Hello,
This is copy / paste of the bio which Camille Wilde sent to me for George Herbert Wilde & his wife Nettie Toone. Once again, this is probably written by Camille but it is not signed.

More later.

Pat & Bill Holling

Nettie Toone and George Herbert Wilde



The sixth child and fourth daughter was born to the Toone’s on August 4, 1876 in Croydon, Morgan County, Utah. She was named Nettie.

Nettie spent her growing up years and received her early education in Croydon. She was baptized September 27, 1884 probably in Lost Creek as others before her had done.

We assume that she too, like some of her older siblings went to salt Lake City for visits with relatives and possible to find work and to further her education.

She had been acquainted with George Herbert Wilde as they both grew up in Croydon. They were married April 19, 1907 in Croydon, Utah. They later received their endowments and were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple on December 21, 1932.

George wa a brother to edwin Albert Wilde. The two marrying sisters made their children double cousins. (this situation can also simplify their lines of genealogy)

George was born in Hilltop, Nottinghamshire, England on September 8, 1872 and came with his parents, Ediwn and Ann Bradley Wilde and family consisting of brother Edwin Albert and sister Annie Mariah (Fister). Baby Mary died and was buried in England.

They first settled in Como, colorado and then on to Croydon. We give thanks to a good friend, John Hopkin who converted this family in England and encouraged them to come to America. It is because of him that Edwin brought his family to Croydon. They fell in love with this valley and decided to stay.

George was baptized October 20, 1880 in Croydon and also received his early education in the schools here.

The Wilde father and his two sons were partners in a Ranch located in the mouth of Giuldersleeve Canyon in Lost Creek. Later the partnership of this ranch dissolved and Nettie and George moved to Salt Lake City.

George had a very brilliant mind. He could figure math problems in his head.

While he was employed at Kennecott Copper Company he waws accidentally struck on the head by a crane. He never fully recovered form this injury. At times he would suffer with memory loss.

He came to visit Edwin on day and saw what a struggle his brother was having to cut rafters for a small cow barn. He said, "Here let me do it for you." It was no hard task for him. He knew the exact pitch for the rafters, thus saving Edwin much anxiety and frustration, and was very much appreciated. Nettie was a beautiful woman, a very good homemaker, wife, and mother. During the depression they would visit their relatives in Croydon. Lizzie and edwin Albert would give them eggs, butter, bacon, raspberries, apples, rubarb, vegetables and milk. The things that they could raise on their ranch.

We need to be reminded that during the depression people were very poor. Work and money were "hard to come by".

Sometimes the city folk thought the country folk were better off and maybe they were. It was very "Hard Times" for all.

They had the following children: Phillip Toone, James Ernest, Grand Herbert and a daughter Melvia (Bettie) Toone Wilde (Bills).

Nettie passed away on March 18, 1941 in a Salt Lake Hospital from a lingering illness. She was in her 65th year.

At that time she was survived by two sisters, Elisabeth Wilde, of Croydon, Utah and Georgianna Condie of Ogden, Utah, two brothers, James Melvin of Buhl, Idaho and Charles Jabez of Sunset, Utah.

She was also survived by her husband, George and the four children, Grant Herbert and James Ernest of Salt Lake City, Phillip Toone Wilde of Spokane, Washington and a daughter Bettie Bills of Philadelphia Pennsylvania. She was living there while her husband was attending Medical school.

At the time of Nettie’s death George and she were living at 458 Marion Street in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Bettie died quite young of Cancer.

Once day a knock came at my door. A fine looking man wanted to know the location of thei family. He said he was a very good friend of the family and an old admirer of Bettie. He said that she was a very beautiful sweet person. I couldn’t be much help to him as I was the only one home and I didn’t know the family.

George was a widower for about five years after Nettie passed away. He died May 2, 1946 and was buried May 6, 1946. Reed Jr. took Grandpa Edwin Albert to Salt Lake City to attend his brothers funeral. He was buried in the Salt Lake City, Utah Cemetery by his wife.
