TAYLOR, JOHN (son of James and Agnes Taylor of Hale,

Eng. Came to Utah Oct. 5, 1847, captain of his company.

Married Leonora Cannon Jan. 28, 1833, Toronto, Canada
(daughter of George Cannon of Peel, Isle of Man). Among
their children was: John W. b. Dec. 17, 1834, m. Jane
Tenant; m. Mary Young.

Married Mary Ann Oakley. Among their children was:
Henry Edgar b. Dec, 26, 1849.

At the age of fourteen he became a cooper's apprentice
In Liverpool, and subsequently learned the turner's trade
at Penrith, in Cumberland. He received his first schooling
at the village of Hale, Westmorland, where his parents
lived on a small estate bequeathed to the head of the house
by an uncle. In 1830 he emigrated to America, following
his parents, who were then residing at Toronto, Upper Can-
ada. He was baptized into the Mormon Church May 9, 1836,
at Toronto, Canada, and ordained an elder by Apostle Parley
P. Pratt; shortly afterward he was set apart to preside
over the Church in Upper Canada. In March, 1837, he visited
Kirtland, where he first met the Prophet Joseph Smith, and
was his guest while sojourning there. He attended a meet-
Ing in the temple, at which Warren Parrish made a violent
attack upon the Prophet. Elder Taylor defended the absent
Prophet and endeavored to pour oil upon the troubled
waters. He was ordained a high priest Aug. 31, 1837. In
1838 he removed to 'Kirtland, proceeding thence in the
general exodus of the Saints to Missouri. At DeWitt, Car-
rol Co., Mo., he and his party, numbering twenty-four, were
confronted by an armed mob of one hundred and fifty, led
by Abbott Hancock and Sashiel Woods, the former a Baptist,
the latter Presbyterian minister, who, after some parleying,
retired and permitted them to continue on to Far West.
He was a witness to the outrages perpetrated by the Mis-
eourlans upon the new settlers, and a participant in the
scenes of peril and disaster ending in the imprisonment
of the Prophet and other leaders and the expulsion of the
Mormon community from the state. That he bravely and
unflinchingly bore his part of the general burden of sorrow
and trial we may be sure. John Taylor knew no fear, and
shirked no responsibility or sacrifice that his duty entailed.

In the fall of 1837 he was told by the Prophet that he
would be chosen an apostle, and at a conference In Far West,
October, 1838, It was voted that he fill the vacancy occa-
sioned by the apostasy of John S. Boynton. The High
Council at Far West took similar action on the 19th of
December, and on that day John Taylor was ordained an
apostle by Brigham Young and Heber C. Klmball. He
was one of the committee appointed to memorialize the
Missouri Legislature for -redress of grievances, and was
also appointed with Bishop Edward Partridge to draft a
similar petition to the general government. He assisted
President Young to superintend the exodus of the Saints
from Missouri, and was with him and others of the Twelve
when they made their famous ride from Quincy to Far
West, prior to starting upon their mission to Great Britain.
He started upon this mission Aug. 8, 1839. At Nauvoo he
was joined by Wilford Woodruff, and these two were the
first of the Twelve to sail. They landed at Liverpool on
Jan. llth, 1840, and at a council held at Preston, it was
decided that John Taylor should labor In Liverpool, with
Elder Joseph Fielding. He was appointed a member of
the committee to select hymns and compile a hymn book
for the Latter-Day Saints. In July, 1840, he passed over
to Ireland, and preached in the court house at Newry,
County Down. This was the introduction of Mormonism
In the Emerald Isle, the first convert being Thomas Tate.
He next went to Glasgow, and after preaching to the
76



Saints In that city, returned to Liverpool and delivered
a course of lectures at the music hall In Bold street. On
September 16th, he, with elders Hiram Clark and William
Mitchell, sailed for the Isle of Man. He delivered a course
of lectures, baptized a goodly number, organized a branch,
and then returned to Liverpool. He returned to America
with President Young and other apostles, arriving at Nau-
voo, July 1, 1841.

At Nauvoo he was a member of the city council, one of
the Regents of the University, Judge Advocate with the
rank of Colonel in the Nauvoo Legion, associate editor
and afterwards chief editor of the "Times and Seasons."
He was also editor and proprietor of the "Nauvoo Neighbor,"
in the columns of which paper, in February, 1844, he nomi-
nated Joseph Smith for the Presidency of the United States.
He, with Willard Richards, voluntarily shared the im-
prisonment with the Prophet and Patriarch. While in prison
he sang a hymn to raise their drooping spirits, and soon
after the jail was assaulted by the mob who shot to death
the Prophet and Patriarch. In the midst of the melee
the apostle stood at the door with a heavy walking stick,
beating down the muskets of the assassins that were belch-
Ing deadly volleys Into the room. After Joseph and Hyrum
were dead, he himself was struck by a ball In the left
thigh, while preparing to leap from the window whence the
Prophet had fallen. Another missile, from the outside,
striking his watch, threw him back into the room, and
this was all that prevented him from descending upon the
bayonets of the mob. In his wounded state he dragged
himself under a bedstead that stood near, and while doing
so received three other wounds, one a little below the left
knee, one In his left hip, and another in the left fore-arm
and hand. The, Prophet's fall from the window drew the
murderers to the yard below, which incident saved the lives
of John Taylor and Willard Richards, the latter the only one
of the four prisoners who escaped unharmed. As soon as
practicable Apostle Taylor, who had been carried by Doctor
Richards for safety into the cell of the prison, was removed
to Hamilton's hotel in Carthage, and subsequently to
Nauvoo.

He accompanied the exodus, February 16, 1846, to Council
Bluffs, from where he was sent with Parley P. Pratt and
Orson Hyde to set In order the affairs of the British
mission. After accomplishing their purpose they returned,
arriving in 1847. Apostle Taylor brought with him a set
of surveying- instruments, with which Orson Pratt, a few
months later, laid out Salt Lake City.

After the departure of President Young and the pioneers,
In April, Parley P. Pratt and John Taylor exercised a general
superintendency over the affairs at Winter Quarters, and
with Isaac Morley and Newel K. Whitney organized the
immigration that crossed the plains that season. It was
about the 21st of June when these apostles, with six hun-
dred wagons and upwards of fifteen hundred souls, began
the journey from the Elk Horn. John Taylor's division
arrived at Salt Lake City Oct. 5, 1847.

In 1849 he was called to head a mission to France, and
In company with Lorenzo Snow, Erastus Snow and Franklin
D. Richards, who were on their way to Italy, Denmark and
England, respectively, he set out on the 19th of October
to re-cross the plains. After a very successful mission,
where he organized a branch and made arrangements for
translating the Book of Mormon into the Gallic tongue, he
returned! arriving at Salt Lake City Aug. 20, 1852. He
brought with him the machinery for the beet sugar plant,
manufactured In Liverpool at a cost of twelve thousand
five hundred dollars; also the busts of Joseph and Hyrum
Smith, prepared under his personal direction by one of
the first artists of England. Two years later he was called
to preside over the Eastern States mission and to super-
vise the emigration. Resigning as a member-elect of the
legislature, he, accompanied by his son, George J. Taylor,
and by Elders Jeter Clinton, Nathaniel H. Felt, Alexander
Robbins and Angus M. Cannon, set out in the fall of 1854 for
New York City, where the first number of "The Mormon"
was issued Feb. 17, 1855. In 1857, at the outbreak of the
"Utah War," John Taylor returned to Salt Lake City.

He was a member of the Utah legislature 1857-76, and for
the first five sessions of that period, speaker of the house.
From 1868 to 1870 he was probate judge of Utah county.
In 1869 he held his celebrated controversy with Vice-Presi-
dent Colfax through the columns of the New York press,
and from 1871 to 1875 he published a series of letters in
the "Deseret News," reviewing the situation in Utah, de-
nouncing territorial government as un-American and oppres-
sive, but warning the people against violent resistance to
Judge McKean's high-handed and exasperating course. In
1877 he was elected territorial superintendent of schools,
and served as such for several years.

The next important event in his history was his elevation
to the leadership of the Church, to which he virtually suc-
ceeded at the death of President Young, August 29, 1877.
He had been for some years President of the Twelve Apos-
tles. He continued to act in that capacity until October,
1880, when the First Presidency was again organized, with
John Taylor, George Q. Cannon and Joseph F. Smith as
its personnel.

President Taylor's last appearance in public was on Sun-
day, Feb. 1, 1885, when lie preached his final discourse in
the tabernacle at Salt Lake City. He had just returned
from Mexico and California, after a tour through the settle-
ments of the Saints in Arizona. That night he went into
retirement and was never again seen in life except by a
few trusted friends. He died July 25, 1887, at the home of
Thomas F. Rouche, In Kaysvllle, Davis Co., Utah. His
funeral was held four days later, at the tabernacle In Salt
Lake City.
