    Biography
    • George Goddard, son of Cornelius and Mary Grace Goddard, was born in Leicester, England, on the 5th of December 1815. Received a common school education until 13 1/2 years of age, at which time was bound as an apprentice for seven years to a Baptist deacon to learn the grocery and tallow candlering business. My parents and all my relatives were strict adherents to the Established Church of England, and until I arrived at the above age, it affected me much pleasure in being regular in my attendance at St. Margarets Church in Leicester. It seemed perfectly natural for us to be morally and religiously [p.458] inclined. After leaving home and fairly commenced my apprenticeship career under the roof of a Baptist deacon, who had a son about my own age, an attachment soon formed between us, and I felt loth to leave him on Sunday after laboring together six days in the week, so I concluded to accompany him to a Baptist Sunday School and attended a Baptist Ministry. This change soon gained a preference in my feelings and understanding, partly on account of baptism by immersion being more in accordance with the New Testament doctrine, than the mode practiced in the Church of England. Also their mode of worship and simplicity of dress and sociability was more in keeping with Christian life, according to my understanding of the scriptures in that early day.
      My apprenticeship terminated when I was 20 1/2 years old, and like most other young men, I had a desire to finish off my business education in the great metropolis of England, London. I therefore left my native town for the first time, and by coach travel started for that wonderful city, where I soon obtained a situation in the world renowned Tea Establishment of Ridgeway, Bakin & Co., on King William Street leading to London Bridge. During my stay there I attended the Ministry of the Rev. Howard Sutton, under whose hand I was baptized by immersion, and thus became a member of that particular Baptist Church. I remained in London nearly 3 years, then returned to my native town of Leicester, where by the assistance of my father I commenced business for myself. On the 10th of September 1839, I was married to Elizabeth Harrison, daughter of John and Elizabeth Harrison of Leicester. During a checquered experience of about 12 years, having had heavy losses in business to cope with, our family of children increased to 7. My religious convictions and sentiments also underwent a wonderful change. For some time past the more I read the New Testament the more I was convinced there was something radically wrong with the doctrines of the religious world. I could not conscientiously continue my membership in the Baptist Church, therefore sent in my resignation.
      Some little time after, being invited by Claudis V. Spencer who called in my store as a customer and who was there on a mission, to go and hear his friend Jacob Gates preach, he also being a missionary, I promised to go, though I had entertained a very poor opinion of the Mormon people as a religious body. The first discourse I ever heard fully convinced me that if God had a people on the earth whom he recognized as His people I had found that at last, and I promised to go again.
      After further investigation and careful comparison of the plan of salvation as taught by the Latter-day Saint elders, with the scriptures of divine truth, both myself and wife were baptized as members of the Mormon Church on January 21st, 1851.[p.459] At the confirmation I was also ordained an elder, and a public notice was given that Elder George Goddard would preach in Derman Street Chapel the following Sunday evening. This, of course, was new business to me and a trial of my faith, being but an infant in knowledge and experience. As the time of meeting drew near my nervous feeling increased. I sought relief and faith by prayer to my Heavenly Father, and to my joy and astonishment I arose to my feet with the fullest assurance that I should not only be assisted by the spirit of God to speak to the people, but all my nervousness would disappear. The meetinghouse was crowded and I was enabled to speak for an hour without the least embarrassment. This was a pleasing testimony to me that I had embraced the truth, and the Lord was with me.
      Early in the spring the elders that I should preach in the marketplace every Wednesday evening. This may be regarded as the grand epoch or turning point of my experience from a Mormon standpoint; hitherto my embracing the Mormon faith was known but to comparatively few. To stand in so public a place and advocate much unpopular doctrine and announce myself a follower of the Modern Prophet, known only to the world as Old Joe Smith, the Imposter, it can easily be seen how the news would spread. And as a natural consequence, my customers ceased to patronize one who had identified himself with a people who were everywhere spoken against. The result of this public duty soon made havoc with my business and out of sympathy for my situation, two of my principal creditors and particular friends of mine since boyhood, called and suggested that if I did not give up public speaking, my business would dwindle to nothing. This I could sensibly realize, and rather than shirk an important duty, I would risk the abandonment of my business. While this was pending, word had reached a brother of mine in Lincoln that I had embraced the Mormon faith, and he wrote immediately and said that instead of bringing such disgrace upon my family connections, it would be far better for us to emigrate to America. To this letter I replied that his proposition involved the following difficulty, viz that to leave honorably with my creditors, I could not possibly raise means to pay transportation of myself, wife and 7 children to America, and feared it would be a burden that he would not like to undertake. He answered by return mail, saying that he would pay 50 pounds to get us out of the country, provided we started by the 10th of October 1851. This unexpected offer led to a final settlement with my creditors and made secure our passage to America.
      We took passage on the sailing vessel Essex and on the 9th of October we went aboard, the only Mormon family on the boat. Most of the passengers were Catholics, presided over by [p.460] a priest. I preached three times by request and permission of the captain. We were nine weeks crossing the ocean, reaching New Orleans early in December. Here we took passage on the steamer Timour and in coming up the Mississippi we ran against a snag which tore away our provision house and otherwise disabled her, which required the aid of another steamer to tow us to Memphis. Here we were detained several days for repairs, and while here our second child died, one having died and was buried in the ocean, having only lived a half hour after birth. We reached St. Louis, Mo. January 1, 1852, with six children, as strangers in a strange country and not means enough to pay the rent. I sustained my family through the winter by peddling a few articles that I had brought from England. There was a branch of the Church in St. Louis and I attended the meetings regularly. The Lord blessed me in my labors, and on one occasion, calling at a large establishment to try and dispose of some small articles to them, the proprietor who had once been an agent for an English Needle Manufacturer, pressed me to purchase his stock on hand which consisted of a great many thousand needles, for which I paid him in Damask bed curtains.
      Early in May we left St. Louis for Kanesville, the great outfitting place for the California emigration. At this place I was able to sell enough needles, goggles and other articles needed by the emigrants to purchase an outfit for our own emigration across the plains to Utah. It consisted of 2 yoke of oxen, 2 yoke of cows, one wagon and provisions. We crossed the Missouri River on the 9th of June 1852 in the 5th Company of Latter-day Saints under Captain Tidwell. Before reaching the buffalo country, two more of our children died from cholera, making five having died since we left our native country in nine months time.
      We arrived in Salt Lake on the 15th of September 1852 minus our wagon which broke down and necessitated our provisions being hauled in by others who sympathized with us in our misfortune. On arriving in the city we borrowed a tent from a widowed sister and lived under it on Emigration Street until I traded off a yoke of cattle and one cow for a house and lot in the 2nd Ward. Houses were like angel's visits, few and far between. One yoke of cows I paid to our teamster for driving and looking after the stock on the plains. Shortly after our arrival I learned the principle of tithing enjoined upon the Latter-day Saints for their observance, viz one tenth of their property on entering the Church and one tenth of their increase thereafter. To meet this requirement I drove my last cow to the Tithing office which was valued at $25.00 and paid $15.00 in other articles, making $40.00 which I regarded as an honest tithing of my entire property.
      My family consisted of a wife and three children. Winter was coming on and I needed work. There were no public works of any kind going on. I still had a quantity of needles on hand, though somewhat rusty, getting wet while crossing the plains, so I decided to go from house to house and offer for sale my rusty needles. Here again the hand of providence smiled upon me for there was a dearth of needles in the city, and almost every family was pleased to purchase or exchange butter, bacon, molasses, etc., thus I was able to sustain my family during the winter of 1852 and early spring of 1853.
      My next venture was a stall on the Godbe corner upon which my variety of notions were spread. This was the first time goods were ever exposed for sale in Salt Lake. The novelty caused many to stop and examine; some made purchases. There was one serious draw back, however, to this mode of keeping store, viz the heat of the sun caused the horn combs to twist, and an occasional shower necessitated a hasty gathering up of my stock. In this dilemma someone suggested an awning of sheeting to take off the glare of the sun, but the Marshall of the city deeming it an obstruction of foot passengers ordered me to take it down.
      A Brother McKenzie who occupied a store, and who was ill in bed, upon hearing of my situation sent for me and offered to vacate his store in my behalf as he wished to live in the country. This I gladly accepted. Among the merchants in the city at that early day of 1855 were Livingston and Kinkead and Cogswell. Some few months after, I purchased the entire stock of merchandise of my neighbor Cogswell and moved into his store. About this time I purchased a building spot on Main Street, 21 1/2 feet front and 165 feet deep, for which I gave a yoke of steers valued at $125.00 and afterwards built a store 60 feet deep and two stories high, being then the largest store on Main Street and which I rented for one year to a Mr. Mack.
      On April 25, 1857, I left Salt Lake on a mission to Canada, in company with 69 other missionaries, known as the "Handcart Division." We left the Temple block at 10 a.m. headed by the Nauvoo brass band who accompanied us over a mile along South Temple. We then halted and gave them three cheers with thanks and wended our way towards Emigration Canyon. We had 26 handcarts containing our provisions and bedding, most of them had three men to each cart. On the following day we organized, and I was appointed chorister and scribe and it was our custom to have singing and prayers every night and morning. We waded the streams, and found it very hard work to ascend high mountains or hills, especially after rain. We arrived in Florence, Nebraska, at 10 a.m. June 10th, making a journey on foot of 1,052 miles in 48 days. On arrival I was appointed auctioneer to sell off our cooking utensils and other [p.462] things used in camp life, also our handcarts. After a few days' rest we separated from each other and with our companions wended our way towards our various fields of labor.
      We had not been gone many months when we were informed to be ready to leave for our homes as Johnston's Army was being sent west to wipe out the rebellious Mormons. We arrived in Omaha in October and not being able to cross the plains until spring, I decided to get work. I peddled notions again and about two weeks before Christmas rented a store in Omaha and sold a good supply of turkeys, chickens, venison, candies, etc. On the 3rd of May 1858 I started on the plains with 84 returning missionaries, and after passing through the usual experiences of camp life we arrived in Salt Lake in the evening of June 21, 1858. All the inhabitants had left their homes and gone south. We camped in the Townsend Hotel yard and started south early the next morning in search of our families. I found mine at Pleasant Grove. We soon had the privilege of returning to our homes.
      Later on, I was called by Pres. Young to fulfill another mission for three years gathering rags so that the Deseret News could be published. That was the only means they had of making paper in those days. I have acted as Bishop Hunter's clerk for 25 years, lacking five months. Am over 65 years of age, enjoying excellent health, no aches or pains; I drink no tea, coffee, beer, spirits or wine and am regular in my habits. For several years past I have acted as clerk to the general conference. For the past 5 years, myself and assistants, W. Willes and Samuel L. Evans, have visited the Sunday Schools of this stake of Zion; also in Utah, Weber, Tooele, Davis, Juab, Box Elder and Cache stakes. Few persons have been so highly blessed since coming into these valleys, and still fewer have had a more active life than myself. The Lord has blessed me with His good spirit, and my labors have been a source of pleasure. I am very fond of vocal music and for nearly 15 years was a member of the Tabernacle Choir. I have acted as secretary in the building of the Assembly Hall, received and disbursed means during its construction. It has cost between $80 and $90,000 dollars. Henry Grow, Thos. Taylor, Wm Asper, Edward Blain and myself were appointed as the building committee by Pres. Brigham Young at the last meeting he ever attended before his final sickness. It was the bishop's meeting and held in the Council House which is the oldest building now in existence on Main Street, nearly 50 years.
      I married Mary Sutton February 1st, 1857, and have 3 children by her. I have had 13 children by my first wife, Elizabeth, but only five lived to maturity. I also lost 2 children from my second wife. Altogether we have had 18 children, but only 8 lived to be married. Written on March 30th, 1881.
      Note: George Goddard was instrumental in starting a hat factory, also a factory for making inks, candies, etc. Was one of the instigators of "Old Folks Day," was a firm believer in the Word of Wisdom and used to sing the song, "Take Away the Whiskey, Coffee and the Tea, Cold Water is the drink for Me." He died January 12, 1899, age 85 years, beloved and respected by all who had the pleasure of his acquaintance. His services were held in the Salt Lake Tabernacle.
