    Excerpts from Andrew Jackson Allen's Journal concerning Allen family history. (some spelling corrected):
    Record of A.J. Allen, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
    p.140-141: "In the 39th year of my age, commenced to keep a record of my life.
    I was born in the year of our Lord 1818 in Sept on the 5th day, in the State of Kentucky, Pulasky Co. Name of County Seat, Somerset.
    My father's name Rial, born in North Carolina in 1791, Mother's maiden name Margaret Evins, born Tennessee 1784.
    My parents moved to Caloway Co. in 1828 and in 1834 the Elders came with the gospel in that County. 2 of my brothers joined the Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints (names James & Lewis Allen). My parents was Baptist by profession and opposed my two brothers when they found the church. At this time I was young.
    My brothers emmigrated to Missouri to Far West in 1835 or 36, I grew up and married a wife in 1841 on the 29th of April. Her name Delilah Andrus. Her birthplace Illinois, Murry Co., time May 6, 1819. Her fathers name Archibald, birthplace Virginia, time Jan 9th 1771. Mothers name Francis Bennitt, born in North Carolina, May 5th 1785.
    It was in 1840 I commenced for myself, my trade was farming, my fathers was the same. I went to Nauvoo in 1844 having desire to see the Prophet Joseph Smith & the Temple etc. and was accompanied by James Allen. When we reached Nauvoo, Bro. Joseph had been murdered just a few days previous and the Saints all in mourning and a gloom seemed to be all over the city.
    We stopped a short time and visited some old acquaintances (Bro Benjamin
    Clap & Daniel Tom[name unreadable] that had formerly lived in Kentucky and then returned to our homes to Kentucky. I had [unreadable] to be baptised when I got to Nauvoo but the [unreadable] being killed and the people feeling so bad, I returned home and did not. In 1845 there was Elders sent through the country notifying the saints that the church had agreed to leave the City of Nauvoo and emmigrate west to the wilderness etc. and when I heard that news the spirit that had prompted me on former occasions still prompted me to gather with the Saints, and I sold my possesions for what I could get and emmigrated to Nauvoo in 1846 in February and was baptized myself and wife in the Missouri River in April and started to the west with the Saints not knowing where they would settle dow
    I did not travel with any of the main companies. Myself and father & two brothers making 4 families traveled together up to Garden Grove, we lay in our flour at a mill at the Des Moines River. At Garden Grove we fe fell in with a Company. The Captain of the Company's name was Jefferson Hunt. We traveled with them up to Kainsville on the Missouri River.
    I see nothing grew as a crop this season. It was the first season I had ever passed without growing a crop. I wintered over at Kanesville and teamed to and fro from Missouri and got supplies for my family. I suffered with the cold. It was 80 miles from Kanesville to where we could get to the settlements and I lost two of my oxen that winter out of my team and had buy more in Missouri.
    The word was when Spring came, for all to continue their journey that could get a sufficient fitout of provisions to last them until they could find a location and raise grain which would be 15 months. So I traveled on, being one that got ready, getting seeds of all kinds as much as I could.
    The President Brigham Young with 150 men started the 10th of April 1847 to seek a place to locate the Saints making the road as they went. The Brethran organized as follows: Captains over 100ds and over 50's and Capt. over tens and we started on the 13th of June. I had two ox teams. One of my sisters, Marthy went with me. My wife and her was the only help I had to help me drive team. I had 4 small children. [Andrew's journal goes on to tell about the wagon train's troubles getting to Salt Lake.]
    * * *
    p. 144 -1847- Then we went in search of timber to put up some kind of building to get our families in, which was scarce as I thought, being used to getting timber in a timbered country. We had to go twelve miles for the timber.
    As soon as I got the roof on my log cabin, which was small poles layed on top and the top very nearly level and dirt on them, we moved to it before I got it chinked. We felt like we had got into a a shelter from the storm, the snow then lay ten inches on the ground.

    Jan 22- "I spent most of the day at my daughter's, Pernecey Frances Williams. Her oldest son was born. His name was Thomas."
    p. 173- 1861- Aug 30-"Two of my brothers came to my house, I had not seen for 15 years. They were just from Missouri, they informed me their families and teams were 25 miles back in Canyon Creek at one of their wife's brothers, Randolph Alexander.

Some said it could not be done." p.207- Sep 14- "My son William C. got home from his trip to Arizona. We were getting quite uneasy about him, as he with four other bretheren, by the request of Brigham Young, had undertook to come home a different way or route to explore the country further east so as to avoid the crossing the Big Colorado, as it was so dangerous a stream and it being so very bad to get through the mountains, etc. They were two weeks longer getting home than expected and the people were generally getting quite uneasy, though Pres. Young said they were all right. They crossed the Green River and White River and three forks of the San Juan River, found it very mountainous and rough country.

Allen, my son that was put in president at one of the settlements in Arizona are trying to fitup to start back.

It is quite an undertaking, long road to travel and heavy sand in many places, and requires a good fitout. In this month of August 1878 I purchased a better book for the purpose of getting a better family record, etc. I sent a letter the 2nd time to Kentucky to James H. Andrus to get my wife, Delilah's brothers and sisters family record, as I had got the record of her father's family before through the same source, J. H. Andrus. He has been very kind in this matter." [Journal next tells of news of Yellow Fever in the "Southern States".] Oct 22- "William C. Allen with his family started to Arizona.

Now at 17 years of age refuses to be controlled by me and leaves. It grieves me to think how little he appreciates the chances I have endeavored to give. He broke off from a good school and as I consider made a bad choice in the man he has engaged with (being weak in the faith of this Church).

    Excerpts from "Treasures of Pioneer History"; " Heart Throbs of the West" and "Our Pioneer Heritage": DRAPER-1849
    The little Mormon community of Draper is situated in the south east corner of Salt Lake Valley at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. It has a population of approximately 2,000 people and is a fine example of what can be done with cooperative methods. The location was originally known as South Willow Creek so named because of the creek by which it is situated. The late President Joseph F. Smith and Norman Brown herded cattle in the vicinity shortly after the Saints entered Salt Lake Valley. In November, 1849 Ebenezer Brown and his two sons, Joseph Guernsey and Norman settled here to raise and fatten cattle to sell to the immigrants. The following spring his wife and another son, John, arrived and built the first home. In July, 1850 Henry Day came and built the second house in South Willow Creek. From then on more settlers came, including Andrew Jackson Allen, Andrew Burnham and Perry Fitzgerald.
    * * *
    THEY ATE SEGO LILY BULBS
    Andrew Jackson Allen in his diary stated: "When vegetation sprang up in the spring, we had to go to the hillsides to seek roots, such as sego and thistle. These were not very palatable, but hunger made them good. My family was out of bread for fifteen days. Our food consisted of cheese, milk and sego bulbs seasoned with butter."
    Temperance Weeks Mathews used to make sego gravy of which her little daughter, Mary E., was very fond.
    Amanda Melvina Snow Bingham records: "Part of my duty was to gather sego lily bulbs from the hillsides as the Snow family were much in need of rations-sometimes only one-fourth a pancake for each of us each day."
    Sanford Bingham with his brother discovered the canyon now called Bingham Canyon while out herding cattle. He said: "Many people dug sego bulbs and pigweeds and ate bran bread to keep body and soul together until the next harvest."
    William Coleman Allen relates that the children would go to the hill with his parents and gather thistles, wild onions and sego lily bulbs to eat as they had very little bread.
    Julia Regetta Thurston Arthurs said that they lived for weeks on roots, sego lily bulbs and wild onions with scant rations of bran and shorts.

    "Heart Throbs Of The West", page 254:
    10th-I moved my family to Utah valley and set them down without any covering only a wagon cover on a wagon box.
    11th-the committee and Cumming and Brigham and the Twelve Apostles met at Salt Lake City, they were there three days. There they agreed to be peaceable and bring the soldiers through Salt Lake City and not disturb anything and locate them in Cache or Skull Valley.
    17th-I have now got me a kind of half-face camp, part dug in the ground and part above the ground covered with brush, and a brush shed in front of it. In this move I am laboring under the disadvantage of a very bad hand. I could not use my left hand for 15 days. I suppose it to be poisoned.
    19th-I went to Payson to see after getting my wool carded. 1 stopped at Provo and attended a meeting, Brothers Woodruff and Snow preached. They cautioned the brethren in relation to selling their wheat to the Gentiles; said Brother Brigham would council them in respect to this matter.
    27th-The army came into Salt Lake City-marched through and passed over Jordan and camped. Gentile merchants came in with their stores. Brigham told the brethren to not trade with them until there was some arrangements made between us and them.
    28th-Brigham told the brethren to be encouraged that they would go back to their old homes. Today I am at my old place in Willow Creek. I can see the soldiers' camp moving up the Jordan.
    29th-The soldiers are camped west of the Jordan River about five miles west of my place. I can see the camp from my house.
    July 1st-The word came to our camp that we could move back to our homes.
    2nd-Me, with many others, moved our effects back.
    18th-I was at Salt Lake City. Brother Brigham has got back to Salt Lake City. Though he keeps himself very close on account of the Gentile officers and false brethren. He tells the people that public meet­ings will have to be stopped. There are many Gentile merchants and they are trying to speculate with the brethren in the way of dry goods as goods are very high.
    Aug. 7th-I was in Salt Lake City. The streets were thronged with Gentiles setting up liquor shops-drunken men on the right and on the left. Brigham and Heber Kimball and Daniel H. Wells, the first presi­dency, keeping themselves close at home. It seems to be a dark time for the saints, no public meetings, some apostatizing from the church.
    15-We held a meeting at our place. The brethren enjoyed the good spirit. The bishop gave some good instructions, said we would not have any more ward meetings at present, said meetings had been stopped sometime at most settlements, then appointed a meeting for the lesser priesthood.
    28th-I was on the road that led to the soldiers' camp and can see many trains of wagons with supplies for the camp.
    Sept. 5th-Freight trains continue to come in with all kinds of provisions for the soldiers.
    11th-I was at Salt Lake City, see 400 more soldiers come in with beef cattle. Supply trains still continue to come in. The Gentiles selling liquor, getting drunk, fighting with knives and pistols and killing each other.
