160 W.B.Hallam Funeral Notes: Fri 6 Feb 1998 (Wilford Hill, Nottingham.)
Walter (Bert) Hallam
Bert Hallam was born on the 13th September 1911 at Highbury Road, Bulwell. He was the son of a miner and was brought up by his grandmother at Cotmanhay. He went to school locally and finished his education, like most lads of his generation, when he was 14. His first job was at Stanton Iron Works and he remained there until he joined HM Forces in 1939.
He met his wife-to-be, Pam, in a local pub. After courtship they married, living first with family in Basford and then in their own home in Broxtowe Lane. Here son John was born.
Bert served his country throughout the Second World War and this included time spent overseas. For her part Pam did her "war work" at Raleigh Engineering.
After being "demobbed" Bert found himself a job as night porter at the George Hotel in Nottingham and he went on to become the hotel's Head Porter. He was to remain at the George for the rest of his working life and a number of folk have told me how smart he was in his uniform and courteous in his manner Bert finished at the hotel when he was 65.
However, formal retirement did not stop Bert continuing to work and he was soon driving for a sheet-metal company.
Sadly the onset of Alzheimer's disease brought an end to his working days. He was forced to give up work and for the next 9 years, as the illness progressed, he was nursed at home by Pam.
Latterly he went into St.Andrew's Lodge for respite care. While there he suffered a stroke and so remained at St.Andrew's where he regained some use of his limbs. He was to stay on in St.Andrew's Lodge until he died very peacefully on 29th January, 1998. Throughout his time in Nursing Care at the Lodge, Bert received first-class attention and the family are most grateful for the professionalism and kindness of the nursing staff.
How do we sum Bert up?
Pam said of her husband: " He was always a grand chap. A quiet man who loved his kids ". He was obviously a man who worked hard all his life and, perhaps having not known his own parents, he tried very hard to give to his own children the love he never known as a child. John said of his dad: "He had a wonderful smile, and there was always a twinkle in his eye. HE WAS THE BEST".
May Bert... your husband, father, grandfather and friend rest in peace and rise to glory. Amen.

On his death certification, it states his age was 73, he lived at Pool close Pinxton. The informant was H. A. Snowden, His Daughter in attendance, she lived at 2, Town street Pinxton.
For some reason William was left out of his wife's will.
He is buried in an unmarked grave in Pinxton churchyard.
For some reason William's birth certificate states his name as John Derbyshire Wilson. Blackwell Reg no 7, 141.

The first recorded history of Pinxton dates back to AD 1002 when it was given, together with the neighbouring village of South Normanton, by its owner Wulfric Spott to Burton Abbey. Following the Norman Conquest, it was held by Drago Fitz Ponce (Ponce's fun or Penkeston) under the Feudal Lord William Peverill (the illegitimate son of William the Conqueror).

Pinxton was built on coal; the well known Top Hard coal seam outcropping to the west of the village.

Pinxton can boast one of the most famous porcelain manufacturers in the country; Pinxton china, manufactured between 1795 - 1816 commands enormous prices in quality antique markets.

Another local feature is Pinxton Wharf. This was the terminus of the Cromford Canal which linked the collieries to the River Trent via. the Erewash Canal. The canal was built in the 1780's by William Jessop to carry coal and pottery but use declined with the coming of the railways. The wharf was landscaped and is now a wildlife sanctuary. The nearby Boat Inn was used as the ticket office for the Pinxton South railway station.

Brookhill Hall, the family home of the former Lords of the Manor, the Cokes, has its origins in Elizabethan times. Much of its former fine oak carved furnishings made specially for the Hall are some of the finest examples of its type in the country and are now housed in the British Museum.

In the late nineteenth century a resident of Pinxton, John King, invented and patented a detaching hook for mine cages which prevented "overwinds" and is credited with saving the lives of a great many miners. A small museum is established in the village dedicated to him and a memorial in the form of the colliery headstocks with a "detaching hook" situated at the crossroads as you enter the village from the motorway.

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."

Emigrated on the ship - Hudson 1864 with brother Joseph and sister Elizabeth. Joseph was part of the Warren S. Snow Oxteam which departed Nebraska 13 - 17 August 1864 and arrived in SLC 2 Nov 1864. Emily and Elizabeth were likely on this some company, no records of a roster exist however. Joseph being only 14 years old and traveling with Emily and Elizabeth up to this point has been varified. Elizabeth married in SLC in December 1864 in Salt Lake City which falls into line with the oxteam companies arrival.

History of ship - Hudson -

Ship: 1618 tons: 208' x 41' x 29'
Built: 1863 by J. A. and D. D. Westervelt at New York City, New York Captain Isaiah Pratt, a mariner who had as early as 1852 skippered the ship Margaret Evans in the Black X Line, was in command of the large packet ship Hudson on both of her voyages with Mormon emigrants. On 3 June 1864 the first passage began at London with 863 Saints from the British Isles, Switzerland, Germany, and Holland. Elder John M. Kay presided over the emigrant company. His counselors were George Halliday, John L. Smith, and Matthew McCune. Other returning missionaries were Elders Louis A Bertrand, Samuel Neslen, and Thomas O. King The crossing was unusually slow-forty-six days, but the "kindness of Capt. Pratt did much to alleviate the fatigue of the journey." Measles broke out among the children, and nine died and were buried at sea. Soon after landing, another child died at Castle Garden. One woman from Switzerland also died. There were three births. The vessel arrived at New York on 19 July. Three years later-1 June 1867-the Hudson sailed from London with twenty Saints aboard, arriving on 19 July after a forty-eight-day passage.
This full-rigged packet had three decks, a round stern and tuck, and a billethead. Captain Pratt was listed as owner in 1868. Her registration was surrendered 30 September 1878 because the vessel had been sunk sometime earlier.
