      2. Per Ordinance index, parents are Richard Leamaster and Nancy Hamlet. There is an extensive article on Artemus Millet in BYU Studies, Vol. 41, no. 2, 2002. It indicates that Nancy Hamlet was born April 15, 1805, in Salisbury, North Carolina, to Jesse Hamlet and Sally Gatewood. About 1836 she married Richard Lemaster (1796-1845). After Lemaster's death, she married Millet on March 11, 1849, in Kanesville, Iowa (marriage performed by Orson Hyde). After Millet's death, she married Andrew Morton Humbleton on Dec. 2, 1898, in Castle Dale, Utah. Artemus was the superintendent of all masonry on the Kirtland Temple. FHL book 977.771 V2k "Vital Statistics from the Frontier Guardian, Kanesville, IA, Feb. 1849 - Jan 1852": "Married. In this town on the 11th inst, by the Editor, Mr. Artemus Millet, of Council Point to Mrs. Nancy Leemaster, of Silver Creek."

      BIRTH:
      1. Per Ancestral File v4.19.

      MARRIAGE:
      1. Richey: Some note place as St. George, Utah on 27 Mar 1857; however, temple sealing was same date in Salt Lake City at the endowment house per LDS extracted record noted in sealing below.

      2. Rudd: Surmised from 1880 census. Susan Easton Black's book of Members of the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of LDS reports a William Rudd b. 21 Jun 1832 in Durham Co., Eng. with death 12 Apr 1915 at Independence, MO with burial in Mound Grove Cemetery in Independence; he was baptized 30 Dec 1893; she references source of "Zion's Ensign" obituary, 26:19:7 - I don't think this is the right William Rudd.

      3. "The Record of James Richey," written by James Richey on December 9, 1855 including a few extracts from his journal with memories by his son, James Moroni Richey, edited and compiled by Susan Sherwood Arnett, 928 E. La Vieve Lane, Tempe, AZ, 85284, 602-839-2882, fax 839-2740, email: warnett@amug.org , copy in Washington County Library, 50 So. Main, St. George, Utah, 84770. The following portion is about James Richey's wives as recalled by James' son: "Now I, James Moroni, as the eldest son will continue with the things I can remember. My parents were called to settle Sanpete Valley in the fall of 1849. Before they left Salt Lake, they were given their endowments in the old Endowment House... Father took a second wife, his niece, Frances Mangum. She lived with him 3 months and left. He also took a third wife, Nancy Leemaster. She had one son, Robert Alma. Nancy left while her baby was small, but we heard of him often. He was a staunch Latter-day Saint. He married Addie Webb. They did not have children of their own, but adopted a son. Mother was the wife that stayed with father through all the trials that came to them, and had 9 children..."
