  • Notes 
    • RESEARCH_NOTES:
      1. See hardfile for letter from the Wood Library Association in Canandaigua dated 18 Feb 1964 responding that no vital records were generally kept in western NY until the 1880's. In the early 1800's, Ontario county comprised all of western NY and is now about 12 counties. Area was settled about 1789. They checked the 1810 census and didn't find any connections. Recommended the 1820 or 1830 census which they indicated was in the Rochester library.

      2. Censuses:
      1840 US: Quincy First Ward, Adams, Illinois, related families:

[Stephen, his wife Mary Ann, Henry W.(12), George (18), {not sure who the 30-40 male and the 15-20 female would be unless it was Charles, age 23 and not over 30, and his new bride Julia Ann, under age 20 - either way it would live Stephen, age 20, unaccounted for}. I do not find Charles or Stephen separately in same census.]
      P. 7a:
      John Ellis, males 20-30:1//females 15-20:2. [Not sure who the second female would be.]

      3. A skeptical view of the father of Julia but without documentation otherwise is taken by Ralph Clark [rbclark2690@infowest.com] per his 9-20-05 email below:
      "My objection with Wayne Hale information is the comment "Julia Ann was shifted from one family member to another during the early years of her life. She never knew what real love and family life was like because of this situation." Similar comments were attributed to Grace Haywood as told to her by her mother Clara Hales Mordue. I do not know where these ideas came from. My wife Lynore Hales Clark gets infuriated anytime this idea is brought up. I am not sure where this idea unloving and shifted from family to family comes from. At least Wayne did not know that Julia Ann was in the Barlow family. It was my wife who told the Hales family that Julia Ann was raised in the Barlow family (note Helen even mentions the name of Lynore Hales Clark), and this book did not come out until 1968. My wife kept asking her dad what is the story of Julia Ann, and he did not know about her. Wayne and Lynore's father Lynn were close and visited each other regularly, and nothing was reporrted about Julia Ann.
      "Another question might be, when did Julia Ann's biological father Joseph Lockwood leave Annis and the home? Could it have been that Joseph was living separate from Annis so Julia Ann was going back and forth between Joseph's and Annis' homes? Or did Joseph go back where his parents were located in Madison County, which would have been a couple hundred miles away? Helen mentions that the Barlow family, including Annis and Julia Ann, moved to Mendon in 1824. Did Joseph move there too? The record indicated that Joseph left shortly after Julia Ann was born. So what does "shortly after" mean? The Israel Barlow story mentions that the branch in Mendon consisted of Israel Barlow, his mother and brothers and sisters. No mention of a husband of Annis is given, so Joseph must have been gone before then. All of the older Barlow brothers/sisters were in the home for many years when Julia Ann was a young child, and I do not think they would have treated her as an unloved or orphan child. Who were the families she would have been shifted to? Would she not have been shifted to another Barlow family member home. Only Margaret married before the Barlows left Mendon. Margaret and Charles Bunnell moved to near Streetsboro, Ohio about 12 miles from Hiram where Joseph Smith was living when the gospel came to the Barlows. The Barlow book mentions that Israel probably would have gone to see his sister during his visit to see the prophet in Ohio. Margaret joined the LDS church but her husband Charles did not. All the Barlows and Julia Ann became members, but George did not. As you mentioned before and the attachment I sent mentions that George may have gone with his dad. I have never heard of squabling within the various Barlow brothers/sisters that would lead someone to say that they were unloving to other family members.
      But, somehow George kept track of his Barlow relatives and his sister Julia Ann, as mentioned in his letter in the 1880s. So, somehow he had kept track of them. His letter mentions that he had been in the Barlow home in Nauvoo. So, where did George go? If he went with his dad and lived in Madison County, NY, then how did he keep track of the Barlow clan when communication was so poor. I have the notion that George spent additional time with the Barlows during these early years so he knew their whereabouts.
      "I still feel your genealogy needs to be questioned. History has not been open on what became of Joseph Lockwood and who he really was and how he fits in with Annis Gillett. If this Joseph Lockwood is the same one that you list who married Maragret Mathewson, then what happened to Margaret Mathewson? No death date is provided, so is she still alive in 1822-1823? Afterall, George would have been conceived with Annis in late 1822, just a year or so after the birth of his last child with Margaret Mathewson (given as about 1820). Did Joseph abandon Margaret and the young family of four by her and marry Annis Gillett Barlow? Sounds fishy to me, and maybe my brother-in-law's idea that Joseph abandoned another family needs to be investigated more. This brother also says that he found that a Joseph had additional children with the same woman with no children in the same years that George and Julia Ann were born. I will follow up on this when I visit with him in the near future."

      PHOTOS:
      1. Pictures in possession of Kerry Petersen in file folder with father's family group.

      2. Photos on file from Marian Moody of 68-682 Crozier Dr., Waialua, HI, 96791 Marian is a descendant thru Caroline Elmira Hales and her husband Benjamin Franklin Woodard. Photos include large portraits of Charles Henry Hales and each of his two wives. There is also a collage of photos including Charles Henry Hales, his wife Frances, their daughters Caroline and Mary Ann, an unnamed daughter, and combined shot of Frances with an unnamed daughter. There is also another photo of the Spanish Fork Choir with Charles Henry Hales and his wife Julia Lockwod Hales. This is the same choir that was invited to sing at the dedication of the Salt Lake Tabernacle as quoted in an accompanying article about the history of Spanish Fork (source not cited).

      BIOGRAPHY:
      1. Autobiography of Charles Henry Hales states: "We arrived in the state of Missouri in the early part of June(1838), coming to a place called Huntsville. We stayed a short time, since we found quite a big branch of the church there. Some of our company concluded to buy and settle there which they did. I stayed with my father, and went to work for a few months here. I first became acquainted with Julia Ann Lockwood at this place. She was the daughter of Joseph and Annis Lockwood, and was a member..."

      2. From Wayne B. Hales (Julia's Grandson): "My Life Story," p. 6: "My grandmother was born in Canandaigua, Ontario County, New York, Aug. 10, 1824. Soon after her birth, her mother was granted a divorce from her father. He had no use for the gospel which was so dear to her mother. Julia Ann was shifted from one family member to another during the early years of her life. She never knew what real love and family life was like because of this situation. she was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints at the age of 8 by Parley P. Pratt. She married Charles Henry Hales at the age of 15, Oct. 31, 1839 in Quincy, Illinois. Here they had one baby Eliza Ann and moved to Nauvoo, Illinois where another son and daughter were born to them. They were driven out of Nauvoo in 1845 and made their home in Garden Grove, Iowa for six years, 1846-1852. Three other children were born to them in this place. They were driven out of their homes in 1852 and were able to take with them across the desert only those articles absolutely necessary for a family of eight. Julia Ann walked most of the way leaving to her oldest daughter the responsibility of driving the team. They arrived in Salt Lake City in the fall of 1852. While in Nauvoo Julia Ann lived neighbors to the Prophet Joseph Smith and knew his family very well. Their early years in Utah were harsh ones. They often went hungry and Julia was known to make dresses and pants out of seamly sacks for her boys and girls. In spite of their hardships her 12 children were healthy and grew to adulthood to form large families of their own. She served as president of her ward relief society and gave much compassionate service to her sisters and those in need during these early pioneer days. She was much loved and respected by her neighbors and friends. She is the only one of my grandparents that I ever saw. I was 9 years old when she passed away, Feb. 18, 1903, and she was buried at Spanish Fork Cemetery. She was remembered as a faithful wife and loving mother and a true Latter Day Saint."

      3. Per Kate B. Carter, "Our Pioneer Heritage" (Dau. of Utah Pioneers, SLC, UT, 1977) vol.15, pp.517/518: The Spanish Fork Choir had some notoriety in rendering both sacred and secular music, having some of the best soprano voices in the Territory, and affording amusement and refined enjoyment to the citizens of Spanish Fork and the neighboring settlements by giving concerts and social parties. They attracted the attention of Pres. Brigham Young and on two occasions they visited SLC by his invitation, the first to sing at a conference held in the Bowery and afterwards at the opening of the new Tabernacle. At another time, while on his way to attend the dedicatory sevices at the opening of the Nephi meetinghouse, Pres. Young and party stayed at Spanish Fork and held service in the afternoon. Afterward the Pres.. asked the choir to accompany him to Nephi to assist at services there. The choir spent two days at Nephi having a most enjoyable time. See hard file for choir picture which includes both Charles Henry Hales and his wife Julia Lockwood Hales. The choir was organized 4 Jul 1856 and still functioning by 1889.

      4. Per "Pioneers and Prominent Men of Utah": Julia Ann Lockwood was dau. of George Lockwood and Anas Gillet of Buffalo, N.Y.

      5. The book "Pioneer Women of Faith and Fortitude" by Daughters of Utah Pioneers: "Julie Ann Lockwood Hales, b. 10 Aug 1824 at Canandaigua, Ontario, New York, d. 18 Feb 1903 at Spanish Fork, Utah, Utah, m.

      Julia Ann was born and lived as a child near Palmyra, New York. She was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints by Parley P. Pratt in 1836. She moved to Kirtland, Ohio, with her family. She married Charles Henry Hales when she was fifteen years old. They were sealed on Jan. 31, 1846, in the Nauvoo Temple. The birthplaces of their children are a record of where they moved pioneering across in Quincey and Nauvoo, Illinois; and Garden Grove, Iowa. They joined the James C. Snow Wagon Company, and arrived in Salt Lake Valley on Oct., 1852. The rest of their children were born in Salt Lake City, Big Cottonwood, and Spanish Fork, Utah. Her husband took a second wife. In 1856, the crops they had planted were destroyed by the grasshoppers. The families moved to Spanish Fork in 1858. They had little to eat and were glad for a few seamless sacks to make dresses and trousers. Julia Ann was a member of the first Relief Society in Nauvoo. She was Relief Society President in Spanish Fork. She is remembered as one always willing and ready to help anyone in need. Julia Ann lived as a widow for fourteen years and died at the age of 79 in the home where she had raised her her family." [Photo included with article.]

      6. For an interesting account of life in Spanish Fork from about 1861 to 1900, read biography of Eliza Brockbank, her daughter-in-law, within this database.

      7. The book "Mormon Redress Petitions, Documents of the 1833-1838 Missouri Conflict," edited by Clark V. Johnson, contains a copy of the "Scroll Petition" dated 28 Nov 1843 at Nauvoo, IL addressed to the U.S. Congress by members of the LDS Church who had property destroyed by Missouri mobs in the 1830's. Included with over a couple thousand signatures are Charles and Julia Ann Hales.

      A Blessing by Patriarch Chas. D Evans upon the head of Julia A L Hales daut. of Joseph and Alice Lockwood, born Ontario Co. W S Aug 10th, 1824. Julia Ann, in the name of Jesus Christ and by virtue of the holy priesthood I lay my hands on thy head and seal upon thee a blessing. Thy blood is of Ephraim through Joseph of old. Thou wilt not lack an heir to minister Thou hast seen deep sorrow and passed through the furnace of affliction Thy words have strengthened many. Thy wisdom shall be great. Thy angel will not forsake thee and thy name remain in the Lambs' Book of Life. Thou wilt live to see nations fall and be blown away as the dust. Thine eyes shall see Zion redeemed and the saints made free. Thy sons shall build and inhabit where the glory of the Lord is upon the land and kings come to worship at the shrine of Zion. Thy house will not perish, and thy increase be eternal. Thy mind will gaze within the vail and thy flesh be sanctified. No darkness will be within thee. Thou shalt receive an infinite fulness of truth, and see thy Savior's face and hear his voice declare thy work well done. Thy crown shall be celestial and thou shalt sit under a canopy of gold. And I seal thee up unto eternal lives to come forth in the morning of the first resurrection in the name of Jesus, amen."
