Hannah Terry Terry

Born: October 8, 1785 at Goshen, Ulster, Orange, New York
Died: October 4, 1877 at Rockville, Washington, Utah

Compiled by Lucy Brown Archer

Hannah Terry was born on October 8, 1785 at Goshen, Ulster, Orange, New York to Joshua Terry (1764-1827) and Elizabeth Parshall (1765-1848), as the first of twelve children..

Spent early part of her life in New York. She married her cousin, Parshall Terry, the son of her father's brother.on March 16,1802, Hannah and Parshall III moved their family of seven children to Upper Canada (Ontario) where they had six more children.

In 1838 the family joined the LDS Church and left Canada to join the Saints in Missouri.  By fall the saints had been ordered out of the state and Parshall and Hannah fled to Pike County, Illinois. There they lost a child, Debra Terry, and then moved on to Nauvoo, Hancock, Illinois. Once again they had to leave their home when the mobs forced them out of Nauvoo. They arrived in Salt Lake Valley in 1849.

Parshall and Hannah were advanced in years when they arrived in Salt Lake. Their activities were limited. He was a toll-gate keeper of the Red Butte Canyon Road in 1849. In 1851 he moved to Lehi and then to Draper in 1853. In 1856 he was keeper of the toll-bridge across the Jordan River at Lehi. In 1858, at the age of 80, he served as keeper of the toll-gate in Provo Canyon. Parshall died in 1861. Hannah died in 1877 in Rockville, Washington, Utah.

Hannah's father, Joshua Terry was the son of Parshall Terry (1764-1811) and Deborah Clark (1736-1778). The place of his birth has not been found of record, but he was probably born at or near Goshen, New York. His birth occurred during the time of the struggle for possession of the Wyoming Valley in Pennsylvania. The settlers had fled in 1763 after an Indian attack and did not return until 1769. Joshua was therefore born at some place of temporary refuge.

His boyhood seems to have been passed in the Wyoming Valley, Pennsylvania. His name appears on the list of those in Forty Fort the night after the massacre, July 3, 1778. A Joshua Terry is listed as a member of Col. Nathan Denison's Regiment, in a detachment under the command of Col. Zebulon Butler. This is usually supposed to be our Joshua although he would have been only fourteen years of age which is rather young for a regularly enlisted militiaman. There is a tradition that he served in the War of 1812. His son Jesse tells of going to the military camp with his father, and of bringing back the horses.

Stuart T. Terry in speaking of Joshua put this in quotation marks.' "A man of more than ordinary intellectual capacity." Sometime after 1778 he settled in Goshen, New York, where he married and raised his family, according to our family records. However, he seems to have moved around somewhat. Dr. Craft, in his history of Bradford County, Pennsylvania, names Joshua among the settlers of Terrytown, Terry County, Pennsylvania

Later he moved to East Palmyra, New York. In 1785.Joshua married Elizabeth Parshall, born 1765; died October 12, 1848 at East Palmyra, Wayne, New York.. (Stuart T. Terry's manuscript).

Elizabeth Parshall (1765-1848) is the daughter of James Parshall (1735-1775) and Hannah Knapp (1742-c.1762.).
Joshua died at East Palmyra, Wayne County, New York, November 11, 1827.

son of Hannah Terry
husband of Sarah Catherine Brown (granddaughter of James Polly Brown)

by Marica Terry, daughter of David Terry,1952

The first recollection I have of Grandpa Terry was when we went to a family dinner down at the old Terry place. We played under the old black cherry tree in the back yard. My Aunt Fanny John, (Grandpa called his two daughter's-in laws Fanny George and Fanny John) and my mother were getting dinner on the big black porch. There was a stove outside too, where cooking was going on. I remember seeing Aunt Fanny John come out doors and dish up potatoes. Then mother came out and dished up something else, while I stood a way off, watching and building memories.

Then the children were called in and we went through the back porch into the middle room where the enclosed stairway was, and there was a bed in the southeast, corner, by the door to the big east room, where Aunt Hannah Agnes lay with her new baby boy. She, smiling, showed him to us. Then we went up two steps into the big east room where a long table was set for dinner. It had tall glass goblets filled with water.

I dimly remember Grandmother [Hannah]Terry sitting close by. I was seated on the north side of the table in the center. I remember the children remained quiet and well behaved. We were seen and not heard. After dinner Grandpa played the Music Box in the southeast corner between the east and south windows. The rolls to this music box were small and made like the player piano's that came much later on. I can still hear the tinkling music it made. (The music box was burned up in the fire that, burned grandpa's house down in Hinckley but the rolls were saved and we have them.)

Grandpa was born in Albion, Ontario County, Upper Canada, January 1, 1830, the youngest son of Parshall and Hannah Terry. She came from Canada and settled in Nauvoo. They were driven from Nauvoo, and came across the plains when grandfather was nineteen years old. This was in 1849.

Grandmother Mary Richards was born in Toronto, Home District., Upper Canada, May 14, 1837, With her parents John Kenny and Agnes Hill Richards, she came to Nauvoo on September 30, 1842. On July 27, 1846, she crossed the Mississippi River into Iowa, and wended her way to Winter Quarters, now Florence, Nebraska. They went back to Pottowattomie County, Iowa, where they remained until the 22nd of April, 1851, then started across the plains, arriving in Salt Lake City, September 22, 1851, They settled at east Mill Creek. Grandmother Terry was fourteen years old when she walked across the plains,

On November 2, 1856, grandmother Mary Richards (1837-1902) married grandfather on November 2, 1856, and they moved to Draper where the Terry's lived. Mary Richards Terry was nineteen and James Parshall Terry was twenty-six at the time of their marriage.

James P. Terry was with the Utah Militia with Lot Smith and a few other men including some of his wife’s relatives, and some future Dixieites, John Langston being one. They rolled rocks on Johnston’s army when they came through Echo Canyon in the Echo Canyon War. It was while James P Terry was away from home with Lot Smith that his wife gave birth to a daughter, Mary Jane Terry, who was born September 22, 1857, at Draper.

October 7, 1857, he helped Lot Smith with a handful of men, who, after ordering the Government, to turn back burned and destroyed 75 government supply wagons near Green River. While in the north he fought in the Walker War May 21, 1859, another child was born. It was shortly after this child, George Washington Terry, was born that grandmother, Mary Terry, wrenched or sprained her spine, which rendered her more or less an invalid for the rest of her life.

Page 2

February 5, 1861, a third child, James Parshall, Jr., was born. This child, Jimmie, at the age of fifteen months, waved goodbye to his mother one day and went out and was drowned in a canal leading to the Jordan River. This caused Mary to mourn long for her child. Grandmother was a fast and skillful worker even though she did not have good health much of her time.

While James P. Terry lived in Draper, he had an experience which was a source of strength to him in the hard times that lay ahead, He went to his farm one morning in the early spring to plow. When he arrived there he saw a large piece of ground covered with green strange plant growing thriftily. He did his plowing not touching the strange plant. When he went home, he took a bunch of the green plant to show his wife. After dinner, he went back to finish his plowing in the field and all those green plants were gone, The field where it had been growing was bare ground.

James P. Terry, with his family, his brother Jacob and friend, Moroni Palmer left Draper, on November 29, 1862, and started for the Dixie Country via Sanpete County. They finally concluded to locate in Rockville, where they arrived January 13, 1863. The town of Rockville was located on the Virgin River.

Grandmother did much work helping care for the sick. She was a skillful seamstress and could do all kinds of needle work. She was a faithful worker in the church. She served as President of the Relief Society of Rockville, She and grandfather did a great deal of genealogical work and temple work. One wonders how they accomplished so much, except one realized they were both hard and fast workers.

When grandfather came they raised cotton and when he saw the cotton growing, he recognized in it the strange plant he saw in his field in Draper. Grandfather made the first grist mill and cotton gin in Rockville . He also bought the first mower and rake. He grew the sorghum cane and he and his sons were making excellent molasses. The first remembrance I have of Father is when I went with mother back to the lots while she took father’s dinner to him in a milk pan. There under the molasses shed I saw my young father molasses. Then I saw Norman Bliss, Aunt Fanny John's brother, feeding the mill.

Grandfather and grandmother had several children born in Rockville. Hannah Agnes was born February 17, 1863, and died November 13, 1903. John was born in Mendon, Utah, July 10, 1868, and died November 4, 1952, at Salt Lake City, Utah. David Parshall was born in Rockville, December 5, 1870,

(He married Phebe Clara Evelyn Daley, a convert to the church, after she came with her mother from New York State),

Dency Elizabeth, who died when she was 19 years old, was the next. She was born December 5, 1872, and died July 17, 1892. Sarah Mariah was born in Rockville on :the 27th of June, 1875, and died when she was 16 years old, June 11, 1891.

Amy Marilla was born January 6, 1865, in Rockville and married William Beebe and died in Salt Lake City. Daniel and Clark both were born in Rockville and died there as infants, they were the last of grandfather's and grandmother's children.

Grandfather and grandmother had a vineyard and fruit of other kinds - apples, peaches and plums. Grandfather served as Counselor for fifteen years to Bishop Charles H. Smith and he went on two missions, one to the Canadian Mission and one to the Eastern States. When grandfather was coming home from his Eastern States Mission, he was met at Toquerville by his son John with the horses and buggy to bring him home. On his way home he had John stop and let him off so he could go in the hills to pray. He thanked the Lord for his safe arrival and for protecting him from the officers who were arresting all the polygamists. When he went back to the carriage there was the officers to arrest him. Mother said

Page 3

his eyes twinkled when he told about it. It proved to be a good thing, because they were unable to prove anything and he didn't have to worry any more about it. He worked in the United Order and helped to establish it in Rockville. He served as school trustee and road supervisor, Washington County Selectman, serving two terms, beginning 1883. After he moved to Dixie he served in the Black Hawk War.

He also entered into the law of Polygamy. He married Mrs. Sarah Catherine Brown Lemmon Patton, a widow. They were both middle age, she near fifty and he fifty-seven. They had one son they named Richard Surprise. They were surprised to have a child at their age.

Sarah Catherine left grandfather and went to Arizona taking her young son with her. She already had several children when they were married. When grandpa was an old man, 86 years old, he came to Rockville on a visit from Hinckley. She came here at the same time to visit her sister, Sarah Jane Petty. Grandpa and Sarah Catherine were not cordial with each other on this visit to Rockville.

In 1951, when father and mother went on a visit to Salt Lake to the Terry Family Reunion, father asked one of the men who was younger than he was whose son he was. The answer was, "I am James P. Terry's son," and that was the first time he had seen his half brother, Richard Surprise, for over sixty years. Uncle John was also in attendance and they all visited together and were very happy that they had met after so long a time.

Grandmother was a. tall woman of slender build and fine aristocratic features. She was about doing good. She was generous in helping others giving things to help others.

Once when we youngsters were in our teens, our father's cousin, Sarah Hanson Gifford, was telling us about our grandparents. She lived with them sometimes, helping grandma. She said grandma was always giving to others, but grandpa was what we called "tight". Cousin Hannah was visiting us and she was eating dinner with the ladies and children of the family, when the boys, Marvin and Arthur came home we told them what cousin Hannah had said about grandpa and grandma. Arthur, with the loyalty which characterizes him, said, "I guess grandpa had to be tight." Which, no doubt was true. Someone has to guard the store house against the generous.

Grandpa and grandma took care of the travelers who came through. They had a large house and large rooms. The middle room was made of logs facing the south. On the west side was the fireplace, on the east, an enclosed stairway leading up stairs. By the staircase and in the center of the wall was the door leading to the east room, there were two or three steps leading up to this room. The east room was the living room, it was also facing south. It was a beautiful proportioned room, with a fire place and a large book cupboard by it. It had a door leading outside to the south, with two windows one on each side of the door.

On the north side was a door leading into grandma's room, a small bedroom. The walls were plastered white, as the outside was too. On the west side of the house was an adobe room facing south too. It had a fire place on the east side and a door on the north close by leading to the porch kitchen, or as we called it the "summer kitchen". This room was rented or kept for visitors as a bedroom.

They had visitors all the time, father said. Many church leaders coming through stopped there. Cousin Luctetia Draper who married John Parshall Terry, a son of Joel Terry, grandpa's brother, worked for grandmother at times. She said that once Apostle Richards (or Taylor) came there. They made a bed for him on the middle room floor. They had a shuck tick bed, and he slept there. In the morning grandma Terry went to set the table. He was still asleep on the floor where they set the table, so she moved the table out over him and set it. This Brother Richards was a heavy man. He asked Lucretia to comb his hair, he said his head itched and he wanted her to comb it to relieve the itching, She started to comb it and his hair came off in

Page 4

a. wig. Then Brother Richards laughed and laughed. That was a joke he used to play on the girls where ever he went.

They had three large attic rooms up stairs. One over the east room was Aunt Mill's room, Father said she always liked pretty things and made it pretty there. She had a corner to herself and kept it looking nice and pretty. She kept this characteristic throughout her life. She always kept her things nice and. neat and lovely.

On the east, about, a hundred feet from the house, was a drying shed where trays were kept to dry fruit, peaches were dried as well as other fruit. Aunt Hanna Agnes was the fastest one in cutting peaches. The folks said she was incredibly fast in her work. They said she was as near perfect as a person as people get, and even tempered and pleasant woman. On one occasion this fruit house caught on fire. The flames leaped high in the air. They had to go to the river to get water as the water was out of the ditch. The wind was blowing from the east and threatened to burn up the house. Uncle George Terry commanded the wind to change its course and blow to the east, in the name of Jesus Christ, and the wind obeyed. The house was saved, although the fruit shed was burned to the ground.

His mother, Hannah Terry, came to Dixie and lived here with him. She used to spread the boys bread with molasses, Uncle John and father said, and then take a knife and scrape all loose molasses off - very scotch. (I guess she had gone hungry so many times in her life she couldn't get use to having plenty.) They said she was a pleasant old lady. She died when father was seven years old.

The north country called grandfather again and in 1899 he and Uncle John moved to Hinckley, selling their lot to Ida Millett, who moved from Shonesburg down here. Grandfather let Uncle John have it and Uncle John sold it to Ida.

Grandfather came down on visits, but grandmother didn't live long after she moved up there. She lived only three years. She died May 17, 1902, at the age of sixty-five years. Grandfather was made a patriarch of his family. He came to visit us many times. He liked to receive our letters and the valentines we sent him. He was happy to learn of Marvin's first child, a girl that was born on his birthday, January 1, and she had red hair. She was the first. grandchild with the Terry name, Her name is Fae Terry Alstrom.

While they lived in Hinckley, grandfather was kicked by a stallion of Uncle John's which paralyzed his arm. He also suffered another great loss - his house burned down and his diary he had kept all his life burned with it.

He was always a subscriber to the Deseret News, from the first to the time of his death, and also other church magazines. He saved his papers and magazines. Grandfather was a great reader, father
said and was very fond of music. He was refined in his speech, was not given to coarseness or vulgarity.

He did not profane or swear. Nor did he use exaggerated forms of expression, as is forbidden in the Bible. His manners were refined. He had a strong will, When he decided to give up tea, he stopped short. It made him very sick and he said he would die before he would drink it again. He liked red pepper tea and liked his milk scalded for bread and milk, and always wanted a desert spoon to eat his bread and milk.

Grandfather was an active man mentally, spiritually, morally and physically all his life. His speech was slow and deliberate, very plain and well modulated. He spoke much in his sleep and he sounded as if he were awake.

Page 5

Grandpa had a long patriarchal white beard, in his later years his head was mostly bald except a fringe of golden while hair that was cut long as was the custom for men in those days. His hair was red before it turned white. He was over six feet tall and even in his old age, when bent with years, was over medium height. He was always a handsome man to his children and grandchildren. Aunt Mary Jane Stout said she used to think he was the handsomest man she knew, and Aunt Fanny John said she thought he was a handsome man too. "He had a Roman nose and his cheek was like the rose in the snow" as the poet said.

Grandfather. died August 1.2, 1918, closing a very eventful and faithful life. One of the speakers at his funeral said that Grandfather and Uncle Joshua, his brother, of Draper, when they came to conferences made him think of two Biblical Patriarchs with their white beards and noble bearing.


by Ellen Terry Biundell, a Granddaughter

My grandfather Terry was the last born child of Parshall and Hannah Terry. He was born January l, 1830, at Albion, Ontario, Canada, He lived in Nauvoo with his parents, Grandfather has told me that they lived close to the house of the Prophet Joseph Smith; that the Prophet had been at their home many times and that they had been also in his home. He said that he remembered sitting upon the Prophet's knee, and the Prophet patted him on the head, 'When grandfather was baptized, he was confirmed by the Prophet Joseph Smith, I asked grandfather if he remembered the Prophet's appearance. He said that he had clear blue eyes, and a smile that lighted up his whole face,

Grandfather came to Utah with his parents and settled in Cache Valley, He moved to Draper and then to Rockville, Washington County, Utah. Here he was a member of the Bishopric for fifteen years. He had a beautiful home, fine horses, great herds of sheep, a vineyard and orchard, He was road supervisor, Washington County Selectman, two terms, beginning in 1883, Veteran of Walker and Captain of Black Hawk Wars. At the time of his death he was a Patriarch in the Church of Jesus Christ: of Latter-day Saints, Before he died he gave each one of his grandchildren a Patriarchal Blessings.

Personally, I thought a great deal of grandfather Terry. He taught me my ABC's and to read from the newspaper, sitting on his knee. I was very young. I learned rapidly, he was greatly pleased, and he did not forget me, and our experience together. When he returned from his mission in Canada, he brought me a fine set of blocks and letters, numbers and animals. He must have paid quite a price for them at that time. I was overjoyed. I know nothing of his missionary work.

Grandpa Terry was a tall finely built man, with kindly blue eyes, and a long white beard, almost to his waist, ever since I have known him. He was interested in families, names, and loved little children. Whenever he came to Salt Lake City to conference, he never failed to come to our house and stay a day or two. I enjoyed his visits. He thought that I had beautiful children and beautiful names for them, especially, "Marell and Maxine". said he knew a General by the name of Maxine.

Grandfather's funeral services were held in Hinckley. He was buried in the Draper Cemetery. I attended his funeral services. He looked very peaceful in his casket, While I was in Nevada teaching school, he sent me this picture of himself. I am happy to have this picture, he is in appearance and character of a true Patriarch,


I don't know much about grandfather's missionary work, but I do know that my mother cut and sewed and fitted the suit he wore on his mission to Canada and during the time he was there. Grandfather used to say, "That, old iron horse won't travel very well unless you feed him plenty of money.”
