      From the book "The Kartchner Family" compiled by Sarah P. Collinwood.
           "Mark Elisha was born in San Bernardino, California, where his parents had been called to settle, by LDS Church Authorities.  In 1857, his parents moved back to Utah, living in Beaver and in Panguitch.  His parents were with the Mississippi company who came into the Salt Lake Valley a few days after the original pioneer company led by Brigham Young.
           In Panguitch, Mark met Phebe Palmer, they with two other couples from the Kartchner and Palmer families, with their mothers, traveled by team and wagon from Panguitch to Salt Lake where they were married in the Endowment House.
           Some years after their marraige they were called to help colonize Arizona.  Here they remained for 18 years.  Life in Arizona, as in other new settlements, was hard and dangerous.  The Indians and Texas cowboys were troubling the Mormon settlers by stealing their cattle and horses and other animals and possessions.  Mark and Phebe operated a mercantile business and learned to understand and speak the Mexican and Navajo languages as they served those people in the store.
           When released from this colonizing mission, they returned to Utah and settled in Provo, so their childrren could attend the Brigham Young Academy.  Later, desiring some land and a farm, they moved out on Provo Bench (Orem).  Here they built another store and a dance hall.  Mark played his violin for the dancing many times until early morning hours.  In 1907, they again moved back to Provo and built a home at 39 West 2nd North.  In Provo he had a mail contract to take mail to and from the trains.  In 1919 they sold out and moved to Salt Lake City to do work in the Temple.
           Phebe was called to work at indexing cards of all the names that had been done in all of the Temples from the beginning, which she continued until her eyesight failed and she became blind.  Mark was called as a special worker and did many endowments for the dead and witnessed many sealings.  He worked for years until he was past 81, when he was honorably released because of ill health.  He was always a very humble, quiet, unassuming man, being no public speaker, but doing things and performing other duties all his life.  He had good sound judgment and was much in demand, because of his healing power and faith in administering to the sick and afflicted.  In 1911 he was assigned to go with a companion, once a week, to the LDS Hospital to administer to all who wished it. 
           Throughout their lives both Mark and Phebe were faithful, active members of the Church.  They served in many church and civic callings and had a great desire for the better things of life; refinement, education, and culture.  Everywhere they lived Mark was a builder of nice brick homes and was an inspiration to the people of the community. He was a man of all trades as pioneers had to be.  In church callings he served in many capacities, as an alternate High Councilman, a superintendent and counselor in the Sunday School, choir leader, leading the singing and playing the music, and a Ward teacher.  In Arizona he was a school trustee and the city sexton.  He earned a living as a farmer, merchant and storekeeper, and a mail carrier.  He came of sturdy, healthy, dependable ancestors, and lived to the age of 86.  He died and was buried in Provo, Utah.
