Married Mary Smithies. Their children: Melv'lna m Mr
Driggs; James, died: Wilford A., m. Miss Free Lorenzo, mi
Miss Burrows; Abbey. Families resided Salt Lake City.



In connection with the above genealogy the following Is
from the Life of Heber C. Kimball, by Orson F. Whitney.

"In the foregoing lists we have classed together the
wives who were the mothers of his children. Besides these
there were many others, most of them aged ladies and
widows whom he merely supported, without living with
them. Following is a list of their names: Mary Fielding
Smith (widow of Hyrum Smith, sealed to Heber for time),
Margaret McMinn, Hannah Moon, Dorothy Moon, Adelia
Wilcox, Huldah Barnes, Eliza Cravath, Mary Ann Shefflin,
Charlotte Chase, Theresa Morley, Ruth L. Pierce, Maria
Winchester, Laura Pitkin, Abigail Pitkin, Ruth Welling-
ton, Abigail Buchanan, Sophronia Harmon, Sarah Stiles,
Elizabeth Hereford, Rebecca Williams, Sarah Buckwater,
Mary Dull.

Thus it will be seen that Heber C. Kimball was the
husband of forty-five wives (at the funeral of his wife
Vilate, Heber, pointing to the coffin, said: "There lies a
woman who has given me forty-four wives.") and the
father of sixty-five children. Truly a patriarchal house-

It may well be surmised that the government and sup-
port of a family of such dimensions were no small tax upon
the wisdom, patience and provident care of even the wisest
and most opulent. Forever banished be the thought
aspersion upon reason and consistency as it is that self-
seeking, ease-desiring human nature would take upon Itself
such burdens and responsibilities from any motive less
honorable and pure than that which Mormonism main-
tains is the true one. Luxury and lust go frequently hand
In hand: licentiousness and honest toil but rarely.

Heber C. Kimball was a man of Industry, a man of
virtue, of self-denial, who would sooner have thought of
severing his right hand from his body, than to have
cherished an unchaste sentiment, or sacrificed a principle
to sin or selfish ease. He was often heard to declare that
the plural order of marriage, with Its manifold cares and
perplexities, had cost him "bushels of tears."

Yet his was an exemplary family as much so as any
In all Israel, polygamous or otherwise. His wives loved
each other as sisters, and dwelt together in peace and
unity; while his children, especially the males, sons of
various mothers, clung together with an affection all but
clannish in its intensity. Woe betide the luckless wight,
who even in childhood's days, imposed upon a
boy " The whole family of urchins would resent the Insult,
and that, too, with pluckiness surpassing even their

Family prayer was an Institution In the Kimball house-
hold. Morning and evening the members were called In to
surround the family altar and offer up praise and peti-
tions to the Throne of Grace. It is a common remark
to this day that such prayers are seldom heard as were
wont to issue from the heart and lips of Heber C. Kim-
ball Reverence for Deity was one of the noticeable features
that the God to whom he prayed was a being "near at hand
and not afar off." He worshiped not as "a worm of the
dust " hypocritically meek and lowly, or as one con-
scious of naught but the meanness of his nature, and the
absence of merit in his cause. But in a spirit truly humble,
confessing his sins, yet knowing something of the nobility
of his soul, he talked with God "as one man talketh with
another"; and often with the ease and familiarity of an

On "no occasion, while offering up an earnest appeal In
behalf of certain of his fellow-creatures, he startled the
kneeling circle by bursting into a loud laugh in the very
m"dst of his prayer. Quickly regaining his composure
and solemn address, he remarked, apologetically: Lord,
it makes me laugh to pray about some people.

Heber loved his children, and was justly proud of his
numerous noble posterity. If at times he appeared stern,
and was severe in his correction, it was not that he loved
them less, but their welfare and salvation more^ He made
no compromise with sin, but nipped it in the bud, though
the soil wherein It grew were the hearts of his dearest
friends and relations. His greatest desire for his family
was that they should be humble virtuous and God-fearing.
The riches, fashions, and even culture of the world were as
nothing in his eyes, compared with honesty, morality and
the treasures of eternal truth.

Nor was he morose and sullen, because thus sober-
minded and religious. Mingling with his deeply earnest,
profoundly solemn nature was a keen sense of humor, a
continuous play of mirth, like "sunlight gilding the edges

First counselor to President Brigham Young In the presi-
dency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
until his death, 1868. Visited Kirtland, Ohio, late in 1832, and
met the Prophet Joseph Smith on Nov. 8. In 1834 went to
Jackson county. Mo., with Joseph Smith. Brigham Young
and about 200 others. Feb. 14, 1835, was made a member of
first body of the twelve apostles, and accompanied them In
their first preaching mission in the eastern states and
Canada. In 1837 was placed at the head of th'e first mission
to England; returned In 1838, going to Far-West, Caldwell
county Mo. Returned to England 1840, founding the London
conference with Wilford Woodruff and George A. Smith.

Returning to Nauvoo in 1841 and accepting the principles
of plural marriage taught to him by the Prophet Joseph,
Smith who also practiced it. his eldest daughter, Helen Mar
Kimball, was sealed to the Prophet in full ritualistic form.
(See Whitney's history of Utah, Vol. IV, page 19). _

Performed various missions to eastern states and con-
stantly sustained President Young as the rightful successor
to Joseph Smith after his death.

Left Nauvoo and joined the migrating- church members at

Sugar Creek, Iowa, Jan. 14, 1846. That summer he recruited
the Mormon Battalion on the Missouri river; came to Utah
with Brigham Young July 24, 1847; and returned with him
to Winter Quarters. Dec. 27, 1847, when the first presidency
of the church (unorganized since the death of the Prophet)
was organized, he became flrst counselor to President Brig-
ham Young, and Willard Richards second counselor. May,
1848, started on return trip to Utah, arriving there Sept. 20.
First chief justice of the provisional government of Deseret,
and lieutenant governor. He introduced at the general
conference the subject of the Perpetual Immigration Fund
Company, which was forthwith organized. President of the
council branch (senate) of the State of Deseret legislature
March, 1851, and again of the Territory of Utah September,
1851. Assisted President Brigham Young in laying the
southeast cornerstone of the Salt Lake temple April 6, 1853,
and offered thereon the prayer of consecration.

During- the famine of 1856 he fed hundreds from his provi-
sions, having to put his own families on short rations to
feed those who were destitute. Sent his sons William H.
and David P. with wagons of food and bedding in connection
with the relief corps to assist the belated handcart com-
panies caught in the early snows along the Platte and Sweet-
water rivers, thus saving hundreds of lives from perishing,
as their companions had.

Whitney, in his history, says of him:

"Preaching, colonizing, traveling through the settlements,
encouraging the saints in their toils and sacrifices, sitting in
council with church leaders, ministering in sacred places, and
in various other ways playing the part of a public bene-
factor so wore away the remaining earthly years of Presi-
dent Kimball. His name is a household -word wherever his
people dwelt, and 'Brother Heber' was everywhere honored
and beloved even the Gentiles esteemed him, admiring his
high courage and outspoken candor."

He died at Provo June 22, 1868, principally, as the result
of an accident, by the overturning of a vehicle in which he
was riding at night.
