History: Caroline Webb

Grandfather Webb (David Webb) was a superintendent of textile factories in England. He was always dressed well. He wore a top hat and he carried a cane. Grandmother (Esther Olpin) was a seamstress. She was sewing for one of Grandfather’s relatives. She was sitting near a window one day when he happened to be passing by. He looked up and saw her. He decided that he must meet her and marry her someday, which he did. Her name was Esther Olpin. She was five years older than Grandfather.

They were married and had two children before they left England. The oldest child, a boy (Son boy) , died in England. Aunt Amelia (Amelia Emily Webb) was the girl. They came to America for the Gospel. They settled in the States before coming to Utah. They made their first home in Spanish Fork, Utah. They later moved to Nephi where they spent the rest of their lives.

After reaching America, Grandfather took another wife, Caroline Knowles. We called her “Auntie”. This was a real blow to Grandmother, although she was always kind to “Auntie”. Mother said that grandmother could never be anything but kind to everybody. That was her nature. She was too much that way to her own children and they took advantage of her. “Auntie” was more of a bossy nature; she could be mean or good to them, just as she felt.

Mother was the third child born to them. She was born in Spanish Fork, Utah on the 8th day of April 1851. “Auntie” also had a daughter born in Spanish Fork just six weeks before mother was born. She named her daughter “Sarahanna”. They were living in a dug-out at the time, Grandfather, Grandmother, “Auntie” and her tiny baby.

Grandfather moved with his family to Nephi to live. He became a farmer. He was a very versatile man; he made shoes for his family until they were grown. All of the cloth they had for dresses was made at home. The girls carded the rolls of wool and spun the yarn. Grandmother dyed the yarn and wove it into cloth and then made their dresses. They used sage brush to make yellow color and madder for red.

Grandmother made candles. She, also, made cheese which she stored in fruit jars. They dried fruits of various kinds. They raised sugar cane and made molasses which was then stores in barrels. Lye was made from ashes of certain wood; the lye was then combined with fats to make soap.

Before the fruit trees were old enough to bear fruit, they made preserves of watermelons and ground cherries. They had horses, cows, pigs and chickens.

When they first went to Nephi they lived on Main Street beside Cazier’s on the south, Graces’ on the north, then Sperry’s and then Foote’s were on the corner where the Foot Hotel was later located. While they lived on Main Street the Indians were bad and the people built a wall around the town with big gates. Outside the wall the people planted their gardens. Grandmother and Mother were out picking peas when they heard the report of a gun and a bullet whizzed by their heads; an Indian had taken a shot at them. They scrambled back inside the wall as fast as they could.

To be continued…
