The above is descended From John McIntosh who married at an unknown date and place to Elizabeth Vineyard/Tollett.  They were living in the area of Rockbridge County, VA about 1780 ad later lived in Tazewell County, VA where he died in 1820.  Mr.   McIntosh has extensive research notes on all McIntosh lines throughout the United States.  It was he who extracted the information on John Anglin McIntosh from the National Archives in Washington D. C. and it was that information along  with  the story of the life of Solomon Parks McIntosh, that has formed the basis of our research.


Much assistance was given to the 2004 revision by the following persons:

Printed 1987, updated 2004


     Cornelius McIntosh married Sally Montgomery in Logan County, Kentucky, April 25, 1805. (1)   1805 must have been an exciting time to be alive—the United States was new, Kentucky was new, and so was Logan County.


     In the life story of Solomon Parks McIntosh we read that his father, Cornelius, was born in Logan County (now Todd), Kentucky, October 18, 1784, (2)  however, John Anglin McIntosh, oldest son of Cornelius, in the 1880 census says that his father was born in North Carolina. (3)  John Anglin was 10 or 11 years old when his father died in 1816/17--Solomon Parks was  only 3 or 4.  For this and other reasons I believe John was right--Cornelius was born in North Carolina.


     When the War for Independence ended in 1781, settlers and Revolutionary War veterans began to stream into Kentucky—some from Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia to the north, traveling down the Shenandoah Valley, and some coming from the south through Cumberland Gap or from Nashville, Tennessee.  The boundaries of the states changed, and often settlers never knew for a certainty if they were in Virginia, which became Kentucky, or in North Carolina, which became Tennessee.


     Kentucky was first claimed by the state of Virginia as Augusta County, then Virginia County, then Fincastle County.  In 1780 it was made 3 counties—Fayette, Jefferson, and Lincoln.  In 1792 Logan County was formed from Lincoln County, and also Kentucky became a state.  Here, in beautiful, green,  southern Kentucky, Cornelius married his bride.(1)


     The first homes were one room log cabins with stick or stone chimneys and dirt floors.  There were no roads or bridges.  The most pressing business of the county was recording land claims, building roads and bridges, licensing taverns and mills, hiring sheriffs, and collecting taxes.  Bills were paid in pounds more often than in dollars.


     The county commissioners named one person to be overseer of each road and assigned persons living in the area  to assist in building and maintaining each road—15 feet wide.  The price of meals and liquor was regulated by law—25 cents for breakfast. 


Thieves were taken to court; for stealing a sack of salt from a lick, or a pair of overalls.  Slaves who stole were executed.



REFERENCES begin on page 17:


     Orphans were “bound out” to other families and teen age boys were “bound out” to learn “the art and mystery of tailoring. . .” and other trades.  Persons were assigned to care for the poor or ill and the county reimbursed them.


     Immigrants to the United States in this early period were nearly all from northern Europe and many of them came for religious persons.


     Solomon Parks McIntosh’s life story begins with this fascinating account:  “ Mrs. McIntosh left Scotland and her husband for her religion.  He  was standing on the shore playing the bagpipe in the band when the ship sailed out of the harbor with her and their thirteen sons.  He did not know they were on the ship.  S.  P. could only remember six of their names.  William, Cornelius (born 1759.  Grandfather of S. P. McIntosh),  Solomon, Nimrod, Aaron, and Charles.  His father was also Cornelius born 1784.  He married Sarah Davidson of North Carolina and his grandmother was Nancy Montgomery Davidson.”(2) 


     This account has never been proven.  Neither has it been entirely disproved.

Solomon Parks was 3 or 4 years old when his father died.  He himself was illiterate.  His life story was written by his daughter in law Polly McIntosh when they were living in Little Basin, Cassia, Idaho . The birth dates of his brothers and sisters handed down to the family have all proven to be correct, the death dates incorrect.


     Kerry Ross Boren gave it as his opinion that “your Cornelius was a child or grandchild of one of the four McIntosh brothers who came to Robertson County, Tennessee from Culpeper County, Virginia.  These brothers were Charles who married Candace McElhany, Thomas, Benjamin (who went to Johnson County, Illinois), and John.  There was also an Alexander McIntosh who died in Robertson County, Tennessee ca. 1799. . .Most of the descendants of these McIntosh brothers went to Union and Johnson Counties Illinois, with the Boren migrations.(6)”


     Actually there were at least 5 McIntosh brothers who came from Culpeper, Virginia, were in Caswell, North Carolina at the time of the Revolutionary War and moved to Robertson, Tennessee.  They were Thomas, John, Charles, Nimrod, and Benjamin.  William may have been a brother as well. 


      The fact that Cornelius McIntosh was named Cornelius, and that Cornelius named his children John Anglin McIntosh, Malinda Talbert McIntosh, Nancy Ann McIntosh, Solomon Parks McIntosh and William Carroll (Carl) McIntosh suggests a definite connection to Caswell County North Carolina as the names of some of the residents of Caswell County were  Cornelius Anglin, Solomon Parks, and there were Carrels and Talbert/Tolberts there also.


     Five children were born to Cornelius and Sally in Logan County, Kentucky:  John Anglin McIntosh born April 14, 1806; Malinda Talbert McIntosh born May 16, 1808; Nancy Ann McIntosh, born December 3, 1810; Solomon Parks McIntosh, born August 28, 1813; and William Carroll /Carl McIntosh, born February 18, 1816.


     Sarah, John, Malinda, Nancy, Solomon and William were named as heirs of Cornelius when Cornelius died 1816/1817 in Logan County, Kentucky. (18)


      A  sixth child was also named on the family group sheet handed down:  Harriet McIntosh born April 14, 1803, Logan, Kentucky.  She was born 2 years before the marriage of Cornelius and Sally Montgomery.  She is not named as an heir of Cornelius.


     Cornelius first appears on the Logan tax lists in 1805.(11)  In Kentucky, when a young man turned 21, his name was put on the tax lists.   That would mean  Cornelius was born in 1784.   Sally Montgomery was born June 15, 1789.  She would have been 16 in 1805.   I, Margaret LaFollette, speculate that Harriet is not a sister of Solomon Parks, but perhaps a step sister, a daughter of Thomas Nelson whom Sally married in 1818 after Cornelius died. 


     Cornelius’s name appears on the tax list of Logan County in 1805 as having 70 acres of land in Christian County, Kentucky, on the Elks Fork watercourse.  Why Cornelius’s name should be on a Logan County tax list if he had land in Christian County is not clear unless perhaps the land was partly in one county and partly in another. There is an Elks Fork of the Red River and it runs south into Tennessee.  There was one white male over 21 in his household  and 2 horses.  Women and children weren’t tabulated. 


     In 1806 Cornelius had no land, one white male over 21 and four horses.  In 1807 and 1808 he had two horses.  In 1809 he had 87 or 27 (?) acres on Whippoorwill watercourse entered in the name of T. Taventon and surveyed in his own name; two horses.  In 1810 he had 30 acres on Whippoorwill, one white male over 21, one black slave, and two horses.  In 1813 the black is not recorded.  (11)


     At the time of the 1810 census Cornelius was living in an unidentified area of Logan County, Kentucky and his household then included himself as born between 1775-1784, an unidentified female born between 1775-1784, a female believed to be his wife born between 1784-1794, and two males and one female born between 1800-1810.


     The following circumstantial information indicates that the parents  of Cornelius MAY have been William and Nancy M. McIntosh:


      In Logan KY Index to Surveys, Bk B Pg 240 we read that November 16 1798 there were surveyed for William McIntosh 200 acres of second rate land by virtue of an entry made on a Cert. No. 2445 On the head waters of big Whipperwill Beginning at a white oak and Spanish Oak corner to an old survey N 30 W 36 poles to a mulberry W 90 poles to a stake on Croughans line S 230 poles to a Stake East 154 poles  to a stake in the Barrons N 180 poles to a stake in the Barrons then to the beginning Nov 16th 1798  CC Middleton Smith & Barnabas Smith, Ephm MacLean DS Wm Reading SSC  (13)


     16 Sep 1799 William McIntosh 20 acres on Whippoorwill watercourse entered in the name of McIntosh & surveyed in the name of McIntosh, 1 male over 21, 1?, 4 horses  (11)


      1800 (or 1801) William McIntosh 200 acres Logan, Red River, entered in the name of McIntosh, Surveyed same, 1 _ _ _ 4.  (11)  (Whippoorwill Creek is a tributary of the Red River)


      In March 1801, Nancy McIntosh, the widow of William McIntosh, was appointed administrator of his estate.(14)


      28 Mar 1801 William McIntosh estate appraised:  one bay 2 year old filley, one bay mare, one brown mare, one sorrel mare, one brindle cow & calf, one cow & calf, 2 heffers, 2 yearling heffers,  two two year old heffers, one brown cow & bel, one flax wheal, one coting wheal and 2 pair colin ..., 4 pewter basons, two pewter dishes, fifteen puter plates, eleven puter spoons, one rifle gun & powder horn & shot pouch, one log chane, two ... axes, one pot and tack and ..., one duch oven and lid, one shovel plough, one clevis and bolt, one skilet, one side saddle & bridle, one feather bed 2 sheats 2 blankets one bolster, 1 rug, one feather bed 1 sheat 1 blanket 1 pillow, one bedsted & two bed cords, 3 plain stocks, one screw auger, 1 pairing chisel 1 gimlet, 1 cow hide, one bell & bucket, one hand saw & drawen knife, one b... iron & 2 heaters, 3 chairs, three water pales, 1 grind stone, one case  and two rasors, 1 stone quart jug & one butter j..., 2 weading hoes, 1 meal sifter, 2 sows & thirteen pigs, twelve shoates & one barrow, one broad ax, 1 churn.  (14)


      From 1802 through 1808 the name of Nancy McIntosh appears on the tax lists with 200 acres on Whippoorwill entered in the name of William McIntosh and surveyed in the name of William McIntosh.  (11)


      July 15, 1808, a Nancy M. McIntosh married a Matthew Larue (1) and from 1809 to 1813 the name of Matthew Larue appears in the tax lists with 200 acres on Whippoorwill entered in the name of William McIntosh and surveyed in the name of William McIntosh. (11)


      March term 1810 Nancy McIntosh alias Nancy Larew being on the motion of Benjamin Shaw security for the said Nancy as administratrix of the estate of William McIntosh decd summoned to appear here and give counter security thereupon Matthew Larew and Cornelius McIntosh came into court and executed bond as security for the said Nancy in the penal sum of $500 conditioned as the law directs.  (12)


      November 16, 1813 Cornelius McIntosh, who was then the security for Matthew Larue, the administrator of the estate of William McIntosh, was on his own motion, granted letters of administration of the estate of William McIntosh deceased because Larue had been ordered to appear before the court to provide additional security and had failed to do so.  Cornelius entered into a bond with Barnabas Smith for security in the amount of $700.  (12)  What has become of Matthew Larue?


     19 Feb. 1814 Inventory of William McIntosh estate.  Appraisers John Brandon, Wm. Duncan, John McCallister: 4 sows & 16 pigs, one cow, one heifer young, four head of cattle, one brown mare, two yearling colts, one sorrel mare, one bald horse, one axe, one set plow irons, one plow shear, one clevis, two ... ..., one churn, one big pot, one oven, one small kettle, one pot rack, puter, one butter pot, two feather beds & furniture, one little wheel.  Value $178.00.  (12) This is the final settlement of the estate of William McIntosh who died 1800/01.


     William McIntosh died in 1800/1801 and  his estate was not settled until 1814. Cornelius McIntosh was probably a son of William.  Cornelius died in 1816 and his widow sold 35 acres.  Thirty five acres is roughly 1/6 of 200 acres.  Perhaps the 35 acres Sally sold were part of Cornelius’s inheritance from William.  Thirty five acres would be about 1/6 th of 200 acres and there may have been 5 other heirs, OR the 35 acres may be land Cornelius had obtained in addition to the 200 surveyed by William.  Who were the heirs of William?  There is in the tax lists a John McIntosh with land on Clifty Creek 1799 to 1802; and a John on Gasper watercourse in 1810 and 1813.  There was a Thomas McIntosh in in 1801 with no land and a  William in 1807 and again in 1816 with no land.  A Solomon McIntosh appears on the tax lists 1810-1815, and a Samuel in 1813 and 1814.  The names of Solomon, Samuel, and William follow rather closely after the names of Nancy and Cornelius. Polly McIntosh married Barnett Smith March 24, 1801 and Betsy McIntosh married John Proctor February 12, 1811  (1) After the death of Cornelius the name of Nancy McIntosh appears on the tax lists 1816-1819 with 200 acres entered in the name of William and surveyed in the name of William.  Was Nancy an heir of William?  Perhaps the only heir?

     Who might the parents of Sarah/Sally Montgomery be?  5 Mar 1799 Thomas Davidson 150 acres Whipporwill, surveyed for Thomas Davidson assignee of Margaret Montgomery, widow.  (13)  One wonders if this widow, Margaret Montgomery, is the mother of our Sarah or Sally Montgomery? 


     21 Aug 1800 Margaret Montgomery married Robert Mansell Logan KY.  (1) 


     18 Jul 1803 Margaret Mansell has a bill in circuit court.  She says Robert Mansell  treated her ill and some time in October 1802 deserted the family and has lately sold and is about to sell property she owned before her marriage to him and what was gathered since their intermarriage to the amount of about four hundred dollars and she has reason to believe he is about to leave this state and remove himself to some foreign state or country.  The sheriff is ordered to have said Robert answer the decree or be committed to prison.


     15 Aug 1804 Power of Attorney and deed. Margaret Mansell sells to George McLean.  Appoints him power of attorney.  Wit:  Thomas Davidson Montgomery & Moses Jno Davidson.  (Logan KY Deed Book Film # 364581))


     Feb 1806 Court ordered that Jane Montgomery be bound out to Margaret Mansell (12)  This suggests that something has happened to Robert Mansell and Margaret is being given the guardianship of her own underage child.


     There is an Alexander Montgomery who died in 1817 in Logan County, KY and left a will in which he names all his children and his daughter’s married names.  He has a daughter Sarah whom, he says, will probably never marry.  This is unlikely to be our Sarah as our Sarah married Cornelius McIntosh in 1805.


     In the 1815 tax lists a notation is made in the left margin that Cornelius McIntosh, Solomon McIntosh, and others in the tax list were members of Captain Drew’s Company, War of 1812.  (11)  We believe Captain Drew’s Company would have been a local militia.   This makes one wonder if Cornelius  participated in the War of 1812 and if he possibly died as a result.  Solomon McIntosh did participate.  14 Aug 1815 he appointed W. W. Whitaker of Logan, KY Power of attorney to collect his back pay as a Private in Captain Samuel Gordon’s Company, of the First Regiment of Kentucky Mounted Volunteers in the first regiment commanded by Colonel Samuel Caldwell under the command of General Samuel Hopkins.(12)  


     September 20, 1817, Barnabas Smith sold Sally McIntosh and her five children, John A., Malinda T., Nancy, Solomon P., and William C., heirs of Cornelius McIntosh, deceased, 35 acres on the waters of Whippoorwill, for 30 dollars.  The boundaries of the land were as follows:  Beginning at black oak corner to Unity Smiths 100 acre survey thence S fifty eight poles to a black oak thence S. thirteen East one hundred and sixty one poles to a stake in Barnabas Smiths line thence west twenty two poles to a stake thence N. thirteen west seventy poles to two hickorys thence N. twenty six west thirty six poles to a hickory thence west twenty six poles to a black oak thence N. fifteen west fifty five poles to the beginning . . .”  Sally signed with an “X”. (18)


     The very same day, September 20, 1817,  Sarah D. McIntosh sold the land to James Conyers  (19) for $100.(18)  It has been suggested that Sarah may have paid off a mortgage and then sold the land.


     Sally was about 28 years old having been born June 15, 1789 (In South Carolina according to the 1850 Iowa census--in North Carolina according to Solomon P. (20) and according to John A. (4) or in Kentucky according to William C.(3)   Her children were from one years to eleven years in age.   Notice that Harriet is not mentioned as an heir of Cornelius.


     Sarah McIntosh married Thomas Nelson March 12, 1818 (1).  The marriage was performed by James Conyers.  The name of Thomas Nelson appears on the tax lists of Logan (11) and of Todd Counties (21) until 1825, no land.  Todd was formed from part of Logan in 1819.


     In the 1810 Census of Logan KY (before the marriage) Thomas Nelson’s family was as follows:  Thomas Nelson 1 1  _ _ 1 / 2 1 _ 1 _

This means that in 1810 Thomas Nelson’s family  had 1 male under 10, 1 male 10 and under 16, and one male 45 and up.  2 females under 10, 1 female 10 and under 16, 1 female 26 and under 45. :


     In 1820 in Todd KY tax lists Thomas Nelson’s family was as follows:  2 1 0 0 1 / 1 2 0 1 1.   This means there were 2 males under 10, 1 male 10-16, 1 male 26-40;   1 female under 10, 2 females 10-16, 1 female 18-26, and 1 female 26-45.  Very probably Thomas and Sarah were both widowers when they married.  Thomas Nelson was at least 26 years old and may have been as old as 45;  Sarah Montgomery McIntosh Nelson was the female in the 26-45 year range as she would have been 31 in 1820 and I speculate that the female 45 and over may have been her mother in law—Nancy M. McIntosh Larue—for reasons that I will explain later.


     8 Sep 1823 in Todd KY Court Orders, Thomas Nelson & Solomon McIntosh on road crew from McLean's Cabbins on Russellville road to within half a mile of Elkton.  Road crew reads as follows:  Armstrong Bailey surveyor, begin at Thomas Philips thence to said Js. Coleman, John & Samuel Colemans, thence to Joshua Shreeves thence to Wm Gartim Stephen Talkingtons Thomas Nelsons & Solomon McIntosh's thence to Saml Lindsays William Omelvanys Jno G. Hollingsworths & William Irvins thence to the beginning.  (12)  (Thomas Nelson & Solomon McIntosh are always named as though they were in the same location)  This must have been a major thoroughfare as the road was to be 30 feet wide rather than the usual 15 feet.


     1823 Thomas Nelson 1 4 _ _ _ (21)  I believe this is the last time Thomas Nelson appears in the KY tax lists.


     For whatever reason, sometime in the 1820’s Thomas and Sarah Nelson and children moved to Union County, Illinois.


     July 30, 1825, a Thomas Nelson and a Bazil Boren were two of those called as grand jurors in Union County, Illinois. (22)


     Members of the family evidently spent some time in Tennessee because John A. married a Mrs. Susannah (Susan, Sarah) Boren, widow of Israel Boren, with at least two children, James B. Boren and Alabama Boren, 11 November, 1826, in Gibson County, Tennessee. (23) He was ca. 21.  A son, Cornelius Green McIntosh, was born March 24, 1827, also in Gibson County, Tennessee.


     About 1827 Malinda Talbert McIntosh married Alfred Douglas Young (possibly in Madison County) in Tennessee, and a son, John William, was born to them March 23, 1827 in Union County, Illinois. (25)


      Thomas and Sarah Nelson gave birth to a daughter, Margaret Floranza Nelson, May 7, 1827, in Union County, Illinois. (26)


      About 1829 a second son was born to Malinda T. and Alfred Douglas Young;  Darius Bainbridge, in Union, Illinois.  Darius died six months later and his mother died August 3, 1829 or 1830. (25)


     Thomas Nelson & Solomon McIntosh continue to appear on same road crew in Todd County, Kentucky ending 14 Dec 1829   Did the county commissioners not realize that the Thomas Nelson family was no longer in residence?


     There is a  Sally Nelson in the 1830 census of Union, Illinois with 1 male 10-14, 1 male 15-19, 1 female under 5, 1 female 40-49, and 1 female 60-69.  That would be William Carrol/Carl  McIntosh, Solomon Parks McIntosh, Margaret Floranza Nelson, Sarah Nelson, and, I believe, Nancy M. McIntosh Larue, Sarah’s mother-in-law, because there is a Nancy Larue in Union IL in that period who was a member of the congregation of Nimrod McIntosh, minister.  What has become of Thomas Nelson?


     Nancy Ann McIntosh was married to Thomas McIntosh Jr., February 28, 1830, Union, Illinois, at the home of Sarah Nelson, by Aaron McIntosh, minister.(27)  Two children are known to have been born to them:  John Anglin (22) born about 1831, and James Thomas (22) born ca. 1836 (28)


      John A. enlisted to fight in the Black Hawk Wars July 13, 1832.  At this time he had been living at or near Jonesborough, Union County, Illinois, for about five years.  He was made a member of Basil B. Craig's Company and he traveled to Chicago and Galena, Illinois; Bad Ax and Prairie Du Chien, Wisconsin; and back to Galena and Jonesborough, Illinois, where he was discharged August 18, 1832. (8)


     John A. remained in Jonesborough for some time, moved to Alton, Madison County, and then back to Union. (8)


     Solomon P. married Polly (Mary) Lathum in 1832. (2) A daughter, Sarah Ann, was born to them in Madison County, Illinois, November 27, 1837 (29)


      Thomas McIntosh Jr.  died January 12, 1837 and Nancy was appointed administrator of his estate.(22)


     A county history, PAST AND PRESENT OF SHELBY COUNTY IOWA has this account of John Anglin McIntosh:  “John A. McIntosh was raised a Baptist, with a good mother who taught him of Christ in such a vivid way that he learned to love Christ, and wanted to be like him even as a child.  He was a young man when he first heard the Latter Day Saint missionaries preach and he became interested.  He was prejudiced against them, however, because of the bad things he had heard, and sought the answer through  prayer.  His reported prayer thoughts were:  If these are his servants, I do not care what people say about them, nor what they say about me, or what they have said about the Prophet; if it is his will, I am willing to be associated with them and willing to be persecuted for the doctrine of Christ.  In 1838 John was baptized into the church, ordained an elder, and immediately sent out to preach the gospel.  He passed through many tribulations and traveled thousands of miles on foot.  He climbed mountains and swam or waded rivers with his clothes tied on top of his head to fill missionary appointments, often without a dollar in his pockets.  While on a mission in Arkansas in 1844, he learned of the martyrdom of Joseph and Hyrum Smith, and returned to Nauvoo where his family lived.”


     John A. was baptised a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day-saints in the  fall of 1838 in Johnson County, Illinois.  Solomon P. was baptised December 1838, by Zechariah D. Wilson. (3)  Their little sister, Margaret Floranza Nelson, was baptised in 1839 (26) and John A.’s son, Cornelius Green McIntosh, was baptised in 1839 by Zechariah D. Wilson. (24)  John performed the marriage of Alley D. Boren and Adaline M. Mathis in Union County, Illinois, February 3, 1841, as an elder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day-saints.  (27)  Alfred Douglas Young, husband of Malinda T. (deceased) said he was baptised in 1841 in Gibson County, Tennessee, at the home of his stepfather, Willis Boren, by John A. McIntosh, his wife’s brother. (25)  William C. was baptised, but not until 1842, in Tennessee, by John C McIntosh. (10) 


     Nancy Ann, married again, James B. Boren, stepson of her brother John A., September 25, 1840, in Johnson County, Illinois. (32)


     In 1840 John A. was baptised for his father, Cornelius McIntosh, deceased, by proxy, in Nauvoo, Hancock County, Illinois. (33)     There is a family tradition that Solomon Parks McIntosh was at one time a body guard for Joseph Smith, and held the horses when Joseph escaped from Liberty Jail, Missouri. (31)


     A son was born to James B. Boren and Nancy Ann June 6, 1842, Hancock County, Illinois, whom they named Israel A. Boren. (9)


     Susanna, wife of John Anglin McIntosh, died in Nauvoo, Illinois in June, 1842 .(Nauvoo Sexton’s Records)   From the same record we learn that John A. McIntosh also died in Nauvoo, 1842, age 10.  That would be the son of Nancy Ann McIntosh,  and Thomas McIntosh, Junior.


     John Anglin married again , Nancy McIntosh, in Gibson County, Tennessee August 4, 1842.   THE PAST AND PRESENT OF SHELBY COUNTY IOWA  says that Nancy was a cousin, that she died after bearing two children and that one still survives—Malinda.


     The second daughter of Solomon P. and Polly, Malinda Jane, was born September 24, 1843, in Hancock County, Illinois. (26)


      Also in 1843, we find the following names of members of the branch of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day-saints at Nashville, Lee County, Iowa.  (Across the Mississippi River from Nauvoo, Illinois.):

            John A. McIntosh, elder

            Nancy A. McIntosh

            Nancy J. McIntosh

            Cornelius T. McIntosh (probably Cornelius Green)


     April 1844 John  A. received a mission call.  A. A. Simmons, Darwin Chase, J. A. McIntosh, and Nathaniel Leavitt were appointed to labor in Arkansas.  They were to preach the gospel and advocate the claim of Joseph Smith as a candidate for president. (34)


     At this time (1844) John A., Solomon P. and William C. resided in Nauvoo, Hancock, Illlinois.  William C. lived at Golden’s Point, an early Illinois Latter-day-saint community located halfway between Nauvoo and Carthage.  He was “ordained an elder by Hyrum Smith January 12, 1844.  At the Special Conference, October 8, 1844, in the city of Nauvoo, I was ordained into the Quorum of  Seventies under the hands of elder Bird and others.”  A little further in the record it reads, “9th ward present abode.” (10)


     Solomon P. was ordained a Seventy October 3, 1844 by G. A. Smith of Nauvoo, Hancock, Illinois. (30)


     April 3, 1845, William C. was married to Sarah Melton at Carthage, Hancock, Illinois, by John A. McIntosh, minister. (36)


     July 29, 1845 Margaret Floranza Nelson married John Harrison Mikesell, a widower with one small son, in Hancock County, Illinois. (37)


     April 6, 1841, members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day-saints laid the cornerstone of a temple at Nauvoo.  While the temple was in the course of construction, baptisms for the dead (by proxy) were performed in the Mississippi River. (38)


     June 27, 1844, Joseph Smith, President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day-saints, was killed in Carthage, Illinois.  The Temple was pushed to completion and May 24, 1845, the capstone was laid. (38)


     October 2, 1845 an anti-Mormon convention met in Carthage and passed the following resolution:  “Resolved, that it is the settled and deliberate conviction of this convention that it is now too late to attempt the settlement of the difficulties in Hancock County upon any other basis than that of the removal of the Mormons from the State; and we therefore accept the proposition made by the Mormons to remove from the state by next spring, and to wait with patience the time for removal.” (38)


     The anti-Mormons did not wait patiently.  Solomon P.’s story says he “was endowed in the Nauvoo Temple in 1846 then the work was stopped by the mob.”  They were driven with the Saints to Winter Quarters, (known as Kainsville, now Council Bluffs) Iowa.” (2) (39)


     Throughout the winter of 1845-46 the Saints prepared to move to the Rocky Mountains.  Every available building became a workshop and wagons and harnesses were made and horses and oxen purchased. (38)


     In the meantime work on the interior of the temple continued and temple work for the living and the dead went forward feverishly.  Margaret Floranza and her husband, John H. Mikesell, received their endowments (a promise of blessings based on obedience to God’s laws) January 21, 1846.  John A. and Nancy A. McIntosh received their endowments January 28, 1846; Solomon P. and Polly (Mary), February 2, 1846. (40)


     February 6, 1846 the first wagons left Nauvoo, were ferried over the Mississippi River, and camped at Sugar Creek, Iowa, nine miles away.  March 1, 500 wagons moved out of Sugar Creek, struggled five miles through snow and mud, and camped at the Chariton River. (38)


     It became evident that provisions to last out the journey could not be taken with them—they must be self sustaining during the march.  Herds of cattle, sheep, hogs, chickens, etc., were taken with them and persons were dispatched to purchase food from nearby settlements by trading jewelry, shawls,--anything that could be spared.  (38)


     Realizing that thousands of Saints could not be transported to the Rocky Mountains in one quick trip, scouting parties were sent ahead to select permanent camping sites that might be utilized for years.  (Most of Iowa was still public land.)  The first such camp was Garden Grove on the Grand River, 150 miles from Nauvoo.  Here the “Camp of Israel” halted for a time and 100 men were appointed to make rails for fences, 48 to build houses, 12 to dig wells, 10 to build a bridge, and the rest to plow the ground and plant grain to be harvested by succeeding groups. (38)


     A second camp was Mt. Pisgah, a hundred miles to the west.  Council Bluffs on the banks of the Missouri River, was reached June 14.  It became the third permanent camp.  As soon as it was apparent that winter must be spent on the plains a fourth permanent camp, called Winter Quarters, was located across the Missouri river where Florence, (Omaha) Nebraska now stands.  Five hundred thirty-eight log houses and 83 sod houses were built before winter began-—sufficient for 300 persons. By spring there were twice as many houses and people.  Tons of prairie hay were stacked, wild game salted or dried, wild berries preserved.  Persons were dispatched to St. Louis for supplies not available on the plains.  (38)


     Nauvoo became a deserted city.  Those remaining were either too ill to travel or were remaining to sell their property.  September 17, those persons surrendered Nauvoo to a mob and crossed the river to Lee County, Iowa.  (38)


     The James B. Boren family arrived in Davis County, Iowa, May 3, 1846, remained for a year, and moved to Pottawattamie County June 22, 1847. (9)  A daughter, Margaret Jane, was born ca. 1846, in Iowa.  (28)


     John Jethro, son of William C. and Sarah, was born September 1, 1846, in Davis County, Iowa.


     A son, William Moultrie Lafaette McIntosh, was born to Solomon P. and Polly in 1847 (41)  at Winter Quarters.  He and his mother died soon after. (2)


     Before the cold of winter prevented the spread of disease, 300 fresh graves appeared in the cemetery outside Winter Quarters.  Weakened by travel and a lack of fresh vegetables, the people became easy victims of malaria, scurvy, and other maladies.  Scurvy, called blackleg, caused the greatest suffering and deaths.  Potatoes and horseradish were found to cure the disease and it was checked, but not before nearly every family was affected. (38)


     October 22, 1847, Amelia Delilah was born to Margaret Floranza and John H. Mikesell in Nebraska Territory.” (42)


     January 9, 1848, Margaret and her husband were “sealed” (married for time and eternity) by Brigham Young in the Octagon House at Winter Quarters. (43)  October 3, 1848 a son was born in Salt Lake City. (42)


     Winter Quarters was abandoned in June 1848, according to treaty terms with the Omaha Indians and those not prepared to go west crossed back over the Missouri River into Iowa.  Between 55 and 60 towns were settled around Council Bluffs and neighboring Nebraska between 1846 and 1863 as wagon trains of refugees prepared to go west. (44)


     (It should be noted here that before January 1853 “Council Bluffs” referred to the entire district on both sides of the Missouri River, and after mid-January 1853 almost without exception, the use of the name Council Bluffs refers to the city once named Kanesville.  “Winter Quarters” is now Florence of North Omaha.)


      In the 1850 census Nancy, her husband, and 4 children:  James McIntosh (age 14) son of her first marriage, and Israel (8), Margaret (4), and Nancy Boren(1), were living in District 21, Pottawattamie, Iowa.  So were William C., Sarah, and their two children.  The two children, John (3), and Cornelius (2), were at the home of Louisa and George Melton, Sarah’s sister and brother, the day the census taker called.  Solomon P. was nearby with his two motherless daughters, Sally (14), and Malinda (7).  Sarah Nelson, age 60, born in South Carolina, lived nearby also, the only person in her household. (28)


     John A. was still in Lee Co., Iowa in 1850.  His wife Nancy A. had died in 1848 or 1849 in Lee County, (8) and he and a little girl, Sarah E. (5) were living with a young couple; Hamilton (21) and Nancy J. (20) Spane.  Also in Lee County were John A.’s son Cornelius G., wife Nancy, and baby John A. (10’12). (45)


     March 9, 1851, Solomon P. married Elizabeth Jane Stump.  Both parties were of Big Pigeon.  The license was issued at Kanesville and they were married “at or near the new tabernacle in Pottawattamie County, Iowa.”  He was 34 years old.  She was 22. (46)


     December 25, 1852, John A. married a widow, Malinda Hunt Black, three miles north of Crescent, (8) Pottawattamie, Iowa.  Solomon P. performed the ceremony.  John was 46 years old; Malinda was 22. (26) She had one son, Alexander, (2) by her previous marriage. (47)


     Solomon P. and Elizabeth left “Six Mile Grove” Iowa June 9, 1853 as members of the Miller and John W. Colley Company.  The company was composed of 282 passengers and 70 wagons.  They arrived in Salt Lake City, Utah, September 9, 1853.


     In 1854 (48) and also in 1856 (47) the families of John A., William C., and James B. Boren were in Rockford Township, Pottawattamie, Iowa.  Council Bluffs was not very large then and there were many red men.


     The James B. Boren family had arrived in Pottawattamie County June 22, 1847 and located in section 18 of what became Hazel Dell township.  Their first home was a small log cabin with a puncheon floor, a clap board roof and door, and a stick chimney.  Their next home was of hewed logs with a brick chimney.  They came to own 320, 80, and 100 acres and 8 lots in Crescent township.  Nancy McIntosh Boren died April 12, 1868. (9) They had five children:  Israel, Margaret Jane, Permelia, (Ballard), Cornelius, and Melinda Laura (McMullen).  James B. remarried a Mrs. Agnes Brownell October 1, 1868.  He died April 6, 1902.  He and Agnes were buried in Crescent, Pottawattamie County, Iowa cemetery.


     William C. and Sarah settled in Crescent, Pottawattamie, Iowa.  Their children were John Jethro, Cornelius (Neal) John (Jessie), Sarah L. (Pruitt), Nancy F., William C. Jr., Louisa Malinda (Vincent, Melton), Solomon James, Ellen Emily Jane (Ella) (Allen), and Mary Elizabeth (Foote).  Sarah died May 10, 1881 and William C. Sr. died July 23, 1887.  Both were buried in McIntosh Cemetery, Pottawattamie, Iowa. (49)


     John A. moved to Grove Township, Shelby County, Iowa, in 1857.(8)  His children by his first marriage were Cornelius G. and possibly Nancy J. (Spane); by his second wife possibly a daughter Sarah E. (Hunt) and possibly a daughter Malinda; and by his third wife:  John M., William C, Malinda, David C., Stephen Douglas, Virginia, Emma, Frances (Fannie), Minnie, and Maggie (Margaret?).


     The Galland’s Grove branch of the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day-saints was organized October 21, 1859.  May 13, 1860 John A. baptised his son Cornelius G. a member of the Reorganized Church. (24)  The Galland’s Grove District, comprising the counties of Shelby, Crawford, Audubon, Guthrie, Dallas, Polk, and Sac, was organized October 6, 1863, with Elder John A. McIntosh as president.  He also served as one of the local pastors of his branch.


     A cabin built by John A. in Shelby County, was moved to Potter’s Park in Harlan, Iowa, and was being restored by the Shelby County Historical Society. (50)


     A newspaper article telling of the cabin says John A. was one of the earliest settlers in Shelby County and one of the first white men to make friends with the Pottawattamie and Omaha Indian tribes. (50)


     One of the Indian Chiefs, Yellow Smoke, crawled to the McIntosh cabin after being mortally wounded by braves of another tribe and asked to be buried in a white man’s coffin.  John A. buried Yellow Smoke on his land, about 25 miles northwest of Harlan.  The grave has since disappeared in the rolling hills overlooking the original site of the cabin. (50)


     John A. died August 9, 1894 in Denison, Crawford, Iowa.  He was 91 years old.  Malinda died January 11, 1916. (8)


     I now quote  the life story of Solomon P. McIntosh:  “ Mrs. McIntosh left Scotland and her husband for her religion.  He  was standing on the shore playing the bagpipe in the band when the ship sailed out of the harbor with her and their thirteen sons.  He did not know they were on the ship.  S.  P. could only remember six of their names.  William, Cornelius (born 1759.  Grandfather of S. P. McIntosh),  Solomon, Nimrod, Aaron, and Charles.  His father was also Cornelius born 1784.  He married Sarah Davidson of North Carolina and his grandmother was Nancy Montgomery Davidson.”(2) 


      “Solomon Parks McIntosh was born 38 Aug. 1813 in Kentucky.  He married Polly (Mary) Latham in 1832.  They rode one horse to their wedding.  They had 3 children, Sarah, Malinda, and William Moultrie Laffaette.  She and the baby died when he was born.  He was endowed in the Nauvoo Temple, Illinois, 1846.  Then the work was stopped by a mob.  They were driven from Nauvoo with the Saints to Winter Quarters known as Kainsville now Council Bluffs, Iowa, where two sisters died.” (2)


     “Harriet and her husband, Nancy, and his stepfather, Mr. Nelson, all died of cholera.  Polly’s mother’s brother was Britt Boren, this made Joe, John and Reed Boren of Oakley (Idaho) 2nd cousins to Sarah Worthington and Malinda Severe.” (2)


     “Then S. P. McIntosh married Elizabeth Stump in Iowa.  They came to Utah across the plains in company with John W. Colly and his daughter Janet Dayley.  The Colly wagon waited on the other side of a river while S. P. crossed.  The river was so deep the books and other articles floated out of the wagon.  He put Elizabeth on the bank then got his team and wagon out.” (2)


     “They came to Utah 1856 where a son was born the 6th of June 1856 at Lake Point east of Grantsville where he boiled salt.  His name was Cornelius Benjiman.  They parted.  The boy was accidentally killed under a load of wood south of Salt Lake City.  He was 13 years old.” (2)


     “S. P. crossed the plains 5 times making 2 trips for paper.  On the next to the last trip he met a widow, Mary Elizabeth Bancroft Taylor who had two children, Reuben and Martha Jane.  They were married 21 Dec. 1860 in Grantsville, Utah and they had 9 children, viz. Margaret Froanza, Polly Ann, Mary Elizabeth, Solomon Parks, John William, Samuel, Louisiana, James Stanley and Hyrum.  He died an infant.” (2)


     “Polly Lathum saw this widow Mary in a dream just before she died and told him she had seen his future wife, that he would marry her and he would know her when he saw her.  She would be standing with her back to him, a child on each side of her.  This happened on the plains.  She stood by a wagon washing her hands, a child on each side of her, with her back to him, just as he had been told.  After that he let the two children ride on the load of paper when they got tired of walking.” (2)


     “He died Jan. 6, 1902 age 88.  She at 76.  They had pioneered Utah from 1860 to 1881 and Idaho 1881 landing at Basin Oct. 9, 1881, being one of the first settlers at Basin, Cassia Co., Idaho.”(2)


     “During the Indian depredations in Utah he helped feed and nurse an Indian who had been shot at a jail break having been imprisoned for cattle stealing from settlers.  This was the means of saving his life later as he and Sam Worthington, Charles McMurry and others were hauling goods to Boise in the seventies.  They drove to Snake River near Glenn’s Ferry.  They hesitated to drive down the river bank for fear of Indians ambushing them.  S. P. McIntosh said I will lead if the rest of you will follow.  On the way down he said “Gee! Haw!” to his oxen.  An Indian named Jim, the one he had nursed, knew his voice and stepped out from behind brush, put his hand on his shoulder and said, “Me know McIntosh, me no kill McIntosh.”  Then he spoke to the other Indians who came out from ambush.  They were going to kill and rob them but they did not harm them.  Indian Jim came to Oakley and visited Solomon Parks and showed him the scar where he had been shot in the chest.” (2)


     Children of Solomon P. and Polly (Mary) Latham were Sarah Ann (Worthington), Malinda Jane (Severe), both born in Illinois, and William Moultrie Lafaette McIntosh, born and died at Winter Quarters.  The son of Solomon P. and Elizabeth Jane Stump was Cornelius Benjamin, born at Lake Point, Tooele, Utah.  Children of Solomon P. and Mary Elizabeth Harper Bancroft were:  Margaret Froanza (Preator), Polly Ann (Bedke), Mary Elizabeth (Molly) (Martindale), Solomon Parks Jr., John William, Samuel, Louisiana (Fairchild), James Stanley, and Hyrum, all born at Grantsville, Tooele, Utah. (51)


     Sarah (Sally) A. Montgomery McIntosh Nelson was born in South Carolina at the close of the American revolution. (45) Did her father fight in that war?  She married Cornelius McIntosh on the frontier of Kentucky in 1805.  Was Cornelius involved in the War of 1812?  Did he die as a result or from some other cause?  She moved with her second husband, Thomas Nelson, into the frontier of Illinois.  She was in Nauvoo, Illinois when it was barely settled, and she was driven to Indian Territory in Iowa in 1846.  Is she buried near Winter Quarters or did she move to another frontier?  Are her infant grandson, William Moultrie Lafaette McIntosh and his mother Polly buried there?  Is her daughter, Nancy Ann McIntosh Boren?  Or her daughter Harriet and unknown husband?  Or her second husband, Thomas Nelson?

“After the family had gone to sleep, Joseph and Hyrum appeared to Grandfather and gave him the blessing.  The next morning his wife asked what the chairs were doing around the fire place.  He asked her if she didn’t know that Hyrum and Joseph had been there.  They told him that he would go west with the Saints, and he would live to see his fifth generation.  This all came true.”
