High priest. Boot and shoe business Twenty-fifth street, Salt Lake City, for 30 years. On this location, assisted by his son Joseph H., he built first two-story brick business block on that street, which was used as city postoffice.

Edward along with elizabeth and Joseph came to the States on the ship "Amazon"
"AMAZON. -- The splendid packet ship Amazon, Captain H. K. Hovey, also sailed from London on the 4th instant, with a company of 895 souls of the Saints on board under the presidency of Elder William Bramall; Elders Edward L. Sloan and Richard Palmer being associeated with him as his counselors.  The company passed the Government Emigration Officers on the 3rd, who eulogized their order, harmony and general appearance, after which Presedent Cannon, who was accompanied by several elders from various parts of the mission, held a meeting organized the company and gave appropriate instructions.  The interest manifested by strangers and the officials whose duty called them to be contiguous to the ship, evinced how much excitement the novelty of a ship-load of Saints, leaving London, produced.  During the meeting which accompanied the organization, the officers of the ship, the cabin passengers and the visitors on board listened with marked attention; while the unanimity of feeling manifested by the Saints, and the deep interest with which they listened to the instructions given and took part in the proceedings on the occasion, evidently made a deep impression on them, displaying, as it did, a something so different from all their conceptions of us as a people.  A brass band, from Soulth Wales, the performers being members of the Church on their way to Zion on the Amazon, discoursed sweet music on the poop-deck before and after the meeting, while the sun shone down upon the crowded deck as if the heavens and the earth were combining together to bestow their blessings upon the last company of the season.  The presidency having been appointed and Elder William M'Lachlan nominated as clerk, Elder Kay closed the meeting with prayer, President Cannon having pronounced a blessing upon the ship, her officers and crew and the Saints on board.

There was considerable excitement manifested by the people on shore as this vessel left the dock and moved down the river, the people on the wharves cheering, and, on the banks of the river and on the vessels anchored in the stream waving their handkerchiefs and hats and giving vent to other demonstrations in response to the singing of the people and the music of the band.

It is worthy of note that the departure of the Amazon from London, laden with Saints, is another instance of the fulfillment of prophecy. Some years ago, while Elder Eli B. Kelsey was laboring in London, he predicted in a public meeting in that city that ships should yet leave that port filled with Saints emigrating to Zion.  It was with no intention of bringing about the fulfillment of the at prophecy that we chartered the Amazon, for we were entirely ignorant of the utterance of such a prediction until we heard it stated in a meeting of the Saints held on Sunday, the 1st instant, three days before she sailed. Indeed, the chartering of this vessel was not a matter of choice with us but of necessity.  We could not obtain a vessel in the port of Liverpool suitable to our pupose -- vessels of this description being almost unprecedentedly scarce this spring, and we were, therefore, compelled to go to London.  Thus were circumstances overruled to bring to pass the fulfillment of the words of a servant of God!

Of the elders who sailed on the Amazon, four were from the Valley -- Elders Bramall, Palmer, Edward T. Edwards, and A. W. Van der Woude. . . ."

"June.  Thurs. 4. [June 1863] -- The packet ship Amazon sailed from London, England, with 882 (or 895) Saints, under the direction of William Bramall.  It arrived in New York harbor July 18th, and the immigrants reached Florence [Nebraska] a few days later."

Biography of Elizabeth Lawrence Watkins, Pioneer

Elizabeth Lawrence, daughter of William Lawrence and Hester Whitnell, was born at Street, Sommersetshire, England, on April 6th, 1832. She was baptized on the 8th of September 1850 by Edward John Watkins and confirmed by John Hart. She was married to Edward John Watkins at Bridgewater, England, November 2nd, 1850. Elizabeth Lawrence, accompanied by her husband Edward John Watkins and son, Joseph Hyrum, who had his twelfth birthday on the plains, left England for Utah June 4th, 1863, on board the Amazon, a sailing vessel carrying 1005 persons. Eight hundred ninety-five being a company of Latter-day Saints, the rest Captain and ship crew. William Brammel was set apart by President George Q. Cannon as President of the Company of Saints; Thomas Crane, of Saint George, Lamp Guard; and George W. Larkins, of Ogden, Guard of Main Deck. For two weeks, the sea was very calm. Then was experienced one of the worst storms that had ever visited the Atlantic Ocean. The Captain ordered all off deck and before the rigging or sails could be lowered, the storm ripped the sail and the main mass broke causing the ship to tip within an inch of the sea line. Captain Holly told President Brammel he had heard of the faith of the Mormons and if there was anything in their religion he solicited their aid. President Brammell, E.S. Stone, and Thomas Palmer went and prayed to the Lord for protection, and the next morning a ship was sighted with every mass gone and all dead. Another was so badly damaged, the people were signaling for help. Being the code of the sea, "Share and share alike," they took them onboard. It deprived them of water and before a landing place was reached, they were fearful of a disaster from other sources. After being seven weeks and three days on the water, they landed at Castle Garden, New York.

There was a riot in New York at the time so they were delayed landing for three days. Every man had to swear allegiance to the United States’ flag. After leaving Buffalo, some ruffians set fire to the railroad baggage, two bars being consumed. Some lost most all of their belongings. Through part of the state, the company was taken in cattle cars. They went up the Missouri River landing at Winter Quarters, now Florence. The company had been waiting to receive the saints for weeks. After four days fitting out, they started across the plains. The Saints at Winter Quarters were divided into five caravans. Edward John Watkins, wife, Elizabeth Lawrence, and son, Joseph Hyrum, were placed in the Daniel McArthur Company with a train of seventy wagons, each wagon containing the belongings from two to three families. This company was given the name of Hell Roarin’ Dixie Train. Upon arrival near the Plate River, the Indians would come to swap and trade with the immigrants.

On one occasion what was meant to be a joke all but ended seriously for the company. A young man pointed to a maiden and the Indian Chief said, "Swap girl," and when the young man nodded, "Yes," he raised his fingers 1-2-3-4-5, meaning horses for the trade. The young man said yes and the young chief rode away soon returning with five horses. Upon being refused the trade, he angrily rode away. The company began to make quick preparations to depart, and the young girl was kept in hiding for several nights for the Indians rode upon them in an angry mood. So what seemed a joke may have turned out serious for all concerned.

Many hardships were endured on the trail. Elizabeth and son had to walk as her husband, Edward John, was sick most all the way. They arrived in Salt Lake City, Utah, on October 3, 1863, camping on the square where the City and County building is now. They moved to Ogden city a few days later where Edward John Watkins went into the boot and shoe business. He built the first brick building on 25th Street in 1872 which was used for years as the Govt. Post Office. Elizabeth Lawrence received her endowments on March 4th, 1865, in the Endowment House in Salt Lake City. After coming to Utah, three children were born. Hester Alice Alexia was born Sept. 19th, 1865; Franklin Richard, born March 18th, 1868; and Bessie Ada Ellena, born Sept. 12th, 1871. All through the hardships of early pioneer life, she never had the pleasure of the companionship of her father, mother, or any of her nine brothers, never seeing any of them after leaving England. Her greatest pleasure was her religion. After living the life of a true and faithful Latter-day Saint, she died Feb. 22, 1886, at Ogden, Utah.

LDS Biographical Encyclopedia, Andrew Jenson, Vol. 2, p.761 Doxey, Thomas, a High Councilor in the Weber Stake of Zion, was born March 27, 1829, at Derby, Derbyshire, England, the son of Thomas Doxey and Susannah Brearley. He was baptized May 8, 1850, by Joseph Hall, in Derby; was ordained a Deacon March 16, 1851, by Jacob Gates; ordained a Teacher Feb. 17, 1852, in Derby; emigrated to Utah in 1853; was ordained a Seventy Feb. 12, 1854, by John Back; located at Ogden in 1855; served as clerk and recorder in the Ogden Second Ward from 1856 to 1858; labored as a Ward teacher from 1856 to 1879; was set apart as one of the presidents of the 60th quorum of Seventy Feb. 11, 1859, by Lyman A. Shurtliff; ordained a High Priest and set apart as a High Councilor in the Weber Stake March 19, 1870, by Geo. Q. Cannon, and was set apart as second counselor to Bishop Robt. McQuarrie in 1879. Bro. Doxey served as water master for Ogden City from 1870 to 1883; was appointed a councilman for the second municipal ward, Ogden, in 1882; served as superintendent of the Ogden Second Ward Sunday School from 1867 to 1881; was set apart as first counselor to Bishop Robt. McQuarrie July 6, 1884, and served thus till 1889.
He was appointed an alternate High Councilor Jan. 19, 1890, and became a regular member of that body July 18, 1892. Bro. Doxey died in Ogden, March 25, 1903.[p.762]

The following account was apparently prepared from a personal interview with Thomas Doxey. The interviews took place after 1894, the year "James died" and before 1902 when the book in which it appears was printed:


THOMAS DOXEY. Like the "Forty-niners," the "Early Settlers" of Utah are rapidly passing away, and it is a most interesting thing to meet and converse with one who has seen this country through all its various stages of progression, from an undeveloped wilderness to a land teeming with agricultural and mineral wealth.

Mr. Doxey came to Utah while it was yet in its wild stage, and he himself a young man. He is a native of England, his birthplace having been in the town of Derby, in Derbyshire, where he first saw the light of day on March 27, 1829. His parents were Thomas and Susannah (Brearley) Doxey, both natives of Derbyshire. After completing his schooling, our subject served an apprenticeship in the silk mills of his town, where he learned the silk twisting business. In 1850, he became a member of the Mormon Church. After his conversion, he spent about three years as a teacher in the Sunday School, part of which time he was superintendent and held various offices.

On March 28, 1853, he severed his connection with his old life and took passage on the ship Falcon, at Liverpool, being one of a company of several hundred converts to the Mormon religion who were bound for Utah. They were on the ocean seven weeks and two days, landing in New Orleans, and after reaching Winter Quarters crossed the plains in the company under Captain Harmon. Everything went well until they reached Green River, Wyoming, when they ran out of provisions, and the Captain called for a company of volunteers who would come on foot to Salt Lake City and report the condition of affairs to President Brigham Young. Mr. Doxey was one of these volunteers, with twelve others, and they arrived in Salt Lake on October 5th, eleven days in advance of the rest of the company who had been coming forward as fast as their limited rations- would allow, and were met by the relief force sent out by President Young.

Upon arriving in Utah, Mr. Doxey went to work in the Red Butte stone quarry, getting out rocks for the temple, making his home in the Twentieth Ward, where he bought a lot from Brigham Young, and built a small adobe house on a part of Brigham Young's new survey. He remained in the quarries until the spring of 1855, at which time public work had to be abandoned on account of the grasshoppers destroying all the crops and causing a great deal of suffering on account of scarcity of food. Our subject came to Ogden in June of that year and made his home in the Second Ward, doing anything he could find in order to make a livelihood. He cleared off a small piece of land on the Ogden river, where he put in some crops in 1858, but had to abandon it during the general move south, caused by the entrance into the territory of Johnston's army. Mr. Doxey went to Spanish Fork, and while there made adobe bricks. When the army went into winter quarters at Camp Floyd, Mr. Doxey went there and continued the adobe making, which he sold to the government for building the soldiers' quarters, and in this way was able to get on his feet again, financially, and after making some necessary purchases went back to Spanish Fork, where he secured an outfit and returned from there to his Ogden home, and once more began the cultivation of his land, trading it a little later for a farm at the forks of the Ogden and Weber rivers. This land also had to be cleared, being covered with a dense growth of willows, and box elder and cottonwood trees, some of them measuring two feet in diameter. However, he persevered, and finally had a good farm. In the course of time, the Weber river changed its course, and this resulted in ruining the farm, and Mr. Doxey was compelled to buy more land, buying his present place, which adjoins the old place. He now owns twenty acres, part of which is in Ogden City. He has followed general farming, fruit and vegetable raising, and has been very successful, marketing his produce at a good price.

For thirteen years he served as water master for the Weber canal, assisted in making many of the canals, and stood shoulder to shoulder with the civil and religious authorities in developing the country. He was also for many years assistant deputy road supervisor and poll tax collector, both before and after the California emigrants were going through, assisting Chas. Welch, who was road supervisor and poll tax collector. In the Nauvoo Legion, he held the rank of captain, being elected November 18, 1865, in Company D, Second Battalion Infantry, First Regiment, First Brigade, and under Major Monroe took part in the Echo canyon campaign, his company being the first to go out of Weber county. He went with his regiment as far as Soda Springs to meet Johnston's army, and on returning was again sent to Echo canyon where they remained until snow fell.

In political life, he was for part of one term city councilman, and in the early days served fourteen years as special policeman, and took an active part in developing the country in general.

He has also been very active in church matters, being presiding teacher and recorder of the ward for twenty-five years. In 1853, he was ordained a member of the Thirty-ninth Quorum, being ordained one of the presidents of the sixtieth quorum of seventies of Ogden in 1859. He was ordained a high priest on March 19, 1879, and set apart as a member of the high council, Weber Stake of Zion. January 19, 1879, was appointed second counselor to Bishop Robert McQuarrie, of the Second Ward, Ogden, holding that position, until 1884, when he became first counselor and remained in the bishopric until he moved onto his farm in 1889. He was a teacher in the Ogden Sunday School from the time of its organization, and was for thirteen years superintendent of the Second Ward Sunday School. In the spring of 1890, after having moved to his farm, he was appointed alternate in the high council, and on July 2, 1892, became a regular member, still holding that position. He has been connected with all the interests of the county, both religiously and politically, and still retains much of his interest, acting whenever his health will permit, as a missionary throughout the county.

Mr. Doxey has been married a number of times. He lost two wives in England, through sickness, neither of whom had any children. In 1853, he married at Council Bluffs, Ann Elizabeth Hunt, a daughter of John and Mary (Danby) Hunt. Her mother died on the plains enroute to Utah. She was a native of Hull, England, and died in 1873, leaving a family of six children, all of whom are now married and living. They are: Alma Thomas; Mary Ann, wife of Joseph H. Watkins; David Hunt; Maroni H.; Samuel, for several years principal of the Washington school in Salt Lake City, but now superintendent of manual training in the Salt Lake City schools; Thomas, Jr. his present wife is Mary Rhoades, the daughter of George and Alice (Woolstenhume) Rhoads. Her father died in St. Louis in 1852, from sun stroke, and her mother remarried to Thomas Hill, who raised Mrs. Doxey from infancy. She has borne him ten children, eight of whom are living: James died in 1894, at the age of twenty-one years; Ellen Mellor, now the wife of Nels Sorensen; Rosetta, wife of Wallace Fife; John married Loretta Bingham; Mary Alice, wife of Henry A. Hill, Jr.; George Rhoades; Albert; William, died in 1890, at the age of two years; Clara; Susannah Brearley.
