  • Notes 
    • L.D.S. CHURCH RECORDS; TABITHA HENRICKS RECORDS IN Wanda Wyler Family POSSESSION.

      Tabitha HENDRICKS     1991: 171     1963: 59     DW record number: 21013

      At the death of her mother, Tabitha moved to Louisiana with her father.  She and her sisters Elizabeth and Sarah were taken to Illinois to live with her brother-in-law Neriah Lewis where she had a better opportunity for schooling. (See notes for Elizabeth D110309).

      After her baptism into the Mormon Church in 1845 at Winter Quarters, she shared with the Lewis family their experiences in spending the winter with the Ponca Indians and returning to Winter Quarters.  Neriah Lewis earned money by freighting and Tabitha was put to work among strangers.  Evidently in 1848 she joined a company led by Heber C. Kimball.  Little is said of the journey across the plains, except that it was necessary for Tabitha to drive a team, made up of three oxen and one cow, attached to the baggage wagon.  She arrived in Salt Lake on 24 oct. 1848, and at that time she was just seventeen.  She was not satisfied with her education.  An opportunity presented itself in an offer of a man at Centerville, Utah, who needed someone to milk cows.  He was willing that she should go to school, for which she paid.  His wife and daughters did all the housework, so Tabitha had time to pursue her studies.  She worked for him about three years.

      [In 1850 the census shows a Tabitha Hendricks living with a Bond family in Washington, Buchanan, Missouri.]


      On 18 Aug 1853 she was married to Thomas Edwin RICKS, of whom it was said in later years, "He stands the equal if not the superior of any man of his years, in the Rocky Mountains, for his life-long devotion to the cause he represents and his unflinching services in braving the hardships and vicisitudes, incident to the colonization of the Western Wilds."  They purchased a little farm at Centerville, Utah of 25 acres and had erected a little adobe and log house where they started out their married life.  She became familiar with the medicinal properties of herbs, and often was spoken of as the "Herb Doctor." She was a ministering angel among her neighbors and friends, and at the death of the people of her neighborhood, she always was in demand.  She was the mother of nine sons and three daughters.  In her early married life, she took in her nephew William Hendricks, (D11030402) son of Allen (D110304) who died while crossing the plains.  During her later life she took three other children to raise, Theresa Halvorson, Nellie Collet, and Robert Gee.  She did not hesitate to do all necessary work to maintain her frontier home, having made much of the family clothing from the spinning of the virgin material, to the weaving of the cloth and sewing the material into the final product.  They remaind at Centerville unti 1859, at which time they moved to Cache Valley, Utah, living in Logan until 1893, when Thomas was called to colonize the location which is now Rexburg, Idaho.
