Geneology Posts

A few interesting links I found tonight...

For my siblings who might be interested our Huntington Ancestry working backwards from Great Grandpa Huntington is

Alexander Wiley

Clark Allen (Carried handcart pioneers across river in dead of winter)

Dimick (Dimmock) Baker (Indian translator for Brigham Young, Constable in Nauvoo, Bodyguard for Joseph Smith, One of 16 men chosen to bury Joseph and Hyrum)

William Huntington (carved stones for the Nauvoo Temple, carved one of the star stones, his stones were chosen for the southwest corner from basement to top floor (likely due to the high quality of his stonecutting), Laid cornerstones of the Nauvoo Temple, Sometimes had Joseph Smith's father and brothers stay at his home, Married Bishop Partridge's widow (first bishop of the church))

There was an interesting story of William, his son William, and Prescindia (his daughter) visiting Joseph Smith and Hyrum in LIberty jail. Prescindia wrote that the guards served them human flesh and that William ate some of it before Joseph could warn him to not eat it.

Anyhow, there is some interesting information out there...I think I will look up some more over the next few weeks

I'm glad you are researching this. There is a grandfather on my dad's side who was also a bodyguard to Joseph Smith.

Just an FYI...there is no history online about Joseph Parley or Joseph Parley Junior...

Those who have information might want to blog about it or submit it to the allred Family Organization Website...or they will be forgotten...
