'Heart Throbs of the West

Heart Throbs of the West, Kate B. Carter, Vol. 1, p. 291

A Tribute - My father, William Snow, was a humble, faithful man and was acquainted with the Prophet Joseph Smith. He loved him dearly. When Joseph taught the principle of plural marriage, father took a second wife, Sally Adams, and was married to her in the Nauvoo temple. Soon after this the Saints were driven from Nauvoo, and father's second wife went with her father's family to Council Bluffs. In leaving Nauvoo, the first wife, Liddie Levitt, died of exposure, leaving two little girls. When father and his two motherless children reached Council Bluffs, his second wife joined him and took care of his family. He remained in Council Bluffs for two years, as each man was required to save enough grain to plant in the land toward which they were bound. In 1850, a company was organized to start for Utah. Brother Snow was made captain of the company. In this company was a young widow, Maria Wines, who had three sons. My father became acquainted with her, and after arriving in the valley, they were married. A few years later he married another widow, Anna Rogers, a lone girl whose sisters had died on the plains.

We called the second wife Aunt Sally. She was a most perfect woman. We lived in a duplex house in Pine Valley, Aunt Sally with her six girls and one boy, and mother with her six boys and two girls. In the evening we would all gather in the backyard and play together, pomp, hide-and-seek, ante-aye-over, and other games. We seldom quarreled. We used to remark that our big family had fewer difficulties than the family where there was one mother and one set of children.

After we were older, father built another home for Aunt Sally, and remodeled the duplex for mother. During this time father moved Aunt Maria to Pine Valley from Lehi, where we had all lived in earlier days. Soon after father was elected county judge, he needed a home in the county seat at St. George, so he moved Aunt Roxanna from Lehi to St. George. Now all his families were in southern Utah.

One strong factor in helping us get along so splendidly was that we all kept busy. The girls knit stockings, and helped with the sewing. Aunt Sally's oldest girl used to spin and weave. We younger ones helped to card the wool bats to put in quilts. I would take my knitting and run into Aunt Sally's or Aunt Maria's, of an afternoon. We did not like to knit alone. We were always neighborly, running back and forth into each other's homes. When we put on a quilt, all the girls of the family would help. The boys hauled the wood, plowed fields, planted and harvested the crops. So we were a busy and happy family.

Father was seventy-two years old when he passed away. In those days, because of loose cattle wandering over the cemetery, people fenced in their graves. So all father's children decided to buy a headstone and place a fence around his grave. We wrote the sons of Aunt Maria. One of them sent five dollars, and wrote, "I am glad to send this money, for I had the greatest respect for my stepfather." — Told by Celestia Snow Gardner to Annie Pike-Greenwood.
