She was married to
JACOB LINDSEY WORKMAN on 15 Aug 1834 in OVERTON CO., TENNESSEE. She was
sealed to spouse on 3 Jan 1852. DONE BY PROXY BY REBECCA W. TURNER AFTER
JACOB AND NANCY WERE BAPTIZED INTO THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER DAY SAINTS
ON 22 JULY 1840, THEY MOVED IN THE SPRING OF 1842 WITH HIS BROTHER ABRAHAM AND
HIS FAMILY, TO NAUVOO. "HERE THEY OBTAINED TWO CITY LOTS ACROSS THE STREET
EAST OF HEBER C. KIMBALL'S HOME WHERE THEY BUILT TWO BRICK HOUSES. THEY WERE
TWO STORIES HIGH. THEY EVENTUALLY WERE DEMOLISHED AND THE BRICK FLOATED DOWN
THE RIVER TO KEOKUK WHERE THEY WERE USED IN BUILDING A STORE.
THE TRIALS EDJURED BY JACOB AND NANCY DURING THE EXPULSION FROM NAUVOO WERE NO LESS HARD ON THEM THAN ON HIS FATHER'S FAMILY. THEIR CHILDREN WERE YOUNGER AND NANCY WAS FRAIL. BY THE TIME THEY HAD REACHED MT. PISGAH IN 1846 HER PHYSICAL STRENGTH FAILED. FOOD WAS HARD TO GET, HOUSING WAS INADEQUATE AGAINST THE WINTRY BLASTS AND SICKNESS WAS EVERYWHERE. IN OCTOBER THE SECOND SON SAMUEL DIED. IN NOVEMBER IT HAD BEEN NECESSARY TO BORROW FLOUR FROM A FARMER TO SUSTAIN THE EBBING STRENGTH OF THE LITTLE FAMILY. ON THE 23 OF THAT MONTH THE IRATE FARMER CAME TO THE DOOR DEMANDING THAT HE BE PAID OR THE FLOUR RETURNED. JACOB STEPPED OUTSIDE AND CLOSED THE DOOR TO SPARE HIS AILING WIFE THE WORRY AND TRIED TO EXPLAIN THAT BECAUSE OF SICKNESS HE HAD NOT BEEN ABLE TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT THE DEBT. WHEN HE RETURNED TO THE HOUSE NANCY WAS DEAD. JACOB, WEAKENED BY HUNGER AND SORROW, WAS NOW UNDER THE NECESSITY OF PREPARING HIS WIFE'S BODY FOR BURIAL. THE CAMP WAS SO FILLED WITH SICKNESS THAT THERE WAS NO ONE TO HELP. KNEELING BY THE BED JACOB PRAYED FOR THE STRENGTH NEEDED TO COMPLETE THE DUTY, AND FOR HELP. AS HE STAGGERED ALONG WITH HIS SAD BURDEN A STRANGER CAME TO HIM AND ASKED IF THERE WAS ANYTHING HE COULD DO. TOGETHER THEY DUG A GRAVE AND BURIED THE GALLANT LITTLE MOTHER AND THE STRANGER LEFT.
THE MEMORY OF THE STRANGER, WHOSE NAME JACOB HAD NEGLECTED TO INQUIRE, AND THE HELP IN ANSWER TO HIS PRAYER REMAINED WITH JACOB AND HE WONDERED WHO THE MAN COULD HAVE BEEN. MANY YEARS LATER, AS THE MEMORY STILL TORTURED HIM, HE ASKED THE LORD TO MAKE KNOWN THE NAME OF HIS BENEFACTOR. ONE NIGHT SOON AFTER THAT A GROUP OF MEN SAT AROUND A CAMP FIRE TELLING THE MOST STRIKING EXPERIENCE OF THEIR LIVES. ONE MAN IN THE CIRCLE TOLD THE STORY OF HIS AID TO A MAN IN NEED AND JACOB RECOGNIZED HIM AS HIS BENEFACTOR. HE WAS OLIVER STRATTON WHOSE SON LATER MARRIED ONE OF JACOB L.'S DAUGHTERS.
WHILE LIVING IN NAUVOO IN 1846, HIS SECOND WIFE TO BE (FANNY HARRIS MORRISON) LOST HER HUSBAND. HE HAD DIED, LEAVING HER AND HER MOTHER (MRS. FANNY GROFT GRABIL HARRIS) TO MAKE THEIR OWN WAY. THAT FOLLOWING FEB. ON THE 19TH (1847), FANNY MARRIED JACOB LINDSAY WORKMAN.
JACOB L. WORKMAN HAD USED HIS WAGON BOX TO BUILD COFFINS FOR HIS WIFE AND SON. IT WAS NECESSARY, THEREFORE, TO RECOUP HIS FORTUNES SUFFICENTLY TO RESTORE THE EQUIPMENT BEFORE THE JOURNEY ACORSS THE PLAINS COULD BE MADE. ACCORDINGLY, IT WAS NOT UNTIL THE SUMMER OF 1848 THAT HE WAS ABLE TO MOVE HIS FAMILY ON TO UTAH. THEY JOINED LORENZO SNOW'S COMPANY THAT YEAR AND ARRIVED IN THE GREAT SALT LAKE VALLEY ON 26 SEPTEMBER 1848.
THEN ON 3 JANUARY 1852, JACOB L. WORKMAN WAS MARRIED TO HIS THIRD WIFE (REBECCA WILLARD TURNER). THE TURNER FAMILY, CONSISTED OF PARENTS, TWO SONS-- HENRY AND DAVID, AND REBECCA. THEY HAD JOINED THE CHURCH IN MAINE IN 1842. THAT FALL THEY MADE THE LONG JOURNEY TO NAUVOO, BUT THE RIGORS OF THE TREK CLAIMED THE LIFE OF THE MOTHER ON 22 JAN 1843 (AGE 33 YRS) AND TWO WEEKS LATER, 6 FEB 1843, THE FATHER DIED (AGE 39 YRS) LEAVING THE THREE CHILDREN ORPHANS IN A STRANGE LAND. THREE UNSUCCESSFUL ATTEMPTS WERE MADE BY THE BARTER FAMILY TO TAKE THE CHILDREN BACK TO MAINE BUT FATE INTERVENED AND THEY REMAINED WITH THE SAINTS. REBECCA AND DAVID BECAME WARDS OF OTHER MORMON FAMILIES AND WERE BROUGHT TO UTAH, REBECCA WHO WAS THEN 9 YEARS OLD COMING INTHE FAMILY OF BENJAMIN COVEY; AND DAVID, A CHILD OF 7 YEARS, WAS BROUGHT BY ISRAEL BARLOW. THE OLDER BOY, HENRY, WAS A CRIPPLE HAVING BEEN LEFT SO BY INFANTILE PARALYSIS, AND NO ONE THOUGHT THAT HE WOULD BE ABLE TO MAKE THE ARDUOUS JOURNEY. HE REMAINED IN WINTER QUARTERS, NEBRASKA, SUPPORTINIG HIMSELF BY DOING ODD JOBS AND HELPING OTHERS TO PREPARE FOR THE TREK. IT WAS REBECCA'S GREATEST DESIRE TO BRING HER BROTHER TO UTAH AND JACOB WORKMAN PROMISED THAT AS HER HUSBAND HE WOULD FULFILL THE DESIRE. IT WAS A NUMBER OF YEARS BEFORE HE WAS ABLE TO SEND A WAGON ONLY TO HAVE WORD RETURNED THAT HENRY HAD DIED.
JACOB L. WORKMAN AND HIS FAMILIES WERE CALLED BY PRESIDENT BRIGHAM YOUNG TO HELP COLONIZE THE SOUTHERN PART OF THE STATE OF UTAH IN THE INTEREST OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE COTTON INDUSTRY. JACOB HAD BEEN A MISSIONARY TO THE INDIANS AND WAS ALWAYS ACTIVE IN MILITIA WORK IN THE NORTHERN PART OF THE STATE. IN THE SOUTH HE SUPPORTED HIS CHURCH AND COMMUNITY TO THE FULLEST EXTENT.
