TrevorM Says:

There is a really great song about Archibald Gardner called the “the escape of Archibald Gardner” Written by Sam Payne.

It is on a CD called the Ghosts of Gardner Village. It is a well-written song and a cool story. Music as good as this is a rarity in Mormon circles.

Wives of Archibald Gardner

This blog has been created to document a few set of
statistical facts concerning the wives of Archibald
Gardner. His first wife was Margaret Calinder, a Scot
like himself. A brief review of the life of Archibald
Gardner can be found on:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archibald_Gardner.

A summary of the lives of the wives, as related to the
life of Archibald Gardner, is found in Delilah Hughes'
book. Abstracts of the book have been placed in email
format for Gardner family members only. Contact:

milorgardner@yahoo.com

and confirm your Gardner descendant status. Your family's
appropriate abstracts may then be emailed within 30 days.

Archibald married two statistical classifications of
plural wives. The first class includes the ones that
had been previously married. The second class include
the ones that had not been previously married.

In summary, the first class (five wives) consisted of
Abigail Sprague, Elizabeth Lewis, Serena Evenson,
Harriet Armitage and Mary Larson. Elizabeth and Harriet
returned to their first husbands, one reason being that
the husbands had been miners and were living alone for a
few years. Abigail, Serena and Mary Larson remained with
Archibald the rest of their lives.

In 1990, the descendants of Serena and Archibald
accounted for 50% of Archibald's descendants, 5,000
out of a total of 10,000 counted at the Afton reunion.

The second statistical class (five wives) consisted of
Mary Ann Bradford, Jane Park, Althea Thompson, Jane
Hamiltion, and Elizabeth Dowding. Jane Hamilton and
Eliabeth D. moved away or married other men. Mary
Ann, Jane Park, and Althea remained with Archibald
the rest of their lives.

7. Notes for Serena Evenson.

Serena was Archibald's 6th plural wife. Serena's
first husband Henrick Evensen was 2nd person to
join the LDS Church in Norway, Serena was the first
woman to become a member in Norway with Henrick and
Serena being baptized on 25 Jun 1852, and rebaptized
10 days before marrying Archibald. Serena's children
included twins, Serena and Serenus(Sy). The twins
were delivered by Aunt Venus, an African-American
mid-wife. Venus, was a well known and well respected
personality in Utah (additional census notes on Venus
are footnoted below). Serena thought of Venus highly
for several reasons, one being that Serena's mother
had supported her struggling family in Norway working
as a mid-wife, after the death of Serena's father.

sister Chaney Redd, also a mid-wife (or Chancey Redd) age 38,
female, both black, Luke age 19, Marinda 18, Sam 17, Anna 14
(their children -- recorded as yellow, meaning mixed heritage
in the census?), Benjamin Redd was from Tennessee, and no
state of origin was listed for Venus, Chaney, and children,
though Venus and Chaney had been baptized (LDS?) in
1843, while in Tennessee by B. Lee.

In the 1860 census, Luke Redd, age 34, farmer, from North
Carolina
, Venus Redd 47, (D. meaning ditto NC?), and Miranda
Redd 25 (D?. meaning also from NC?) were recorded.

None of the above ,Venus, et al, appeared in the 1870 census.
No cemetery for Venus, Chaney and their children/nephews
burial have been found (so far).

Interesting tidbits

I recently read Life of Archibald Gardner: Pioneer, and here are some things that I learned:
- Archibald was born in Kilsyth, Stirlingshire, Scotland on 2 Sep 1814.
- He imigrated to Canada while still a young man with his Mother. His father had gone previously.
- While in Brooke Township, Ontario, he married Margaret Livingston also born in Scotland, and they began their familiy.
- Archibald was baptized into the LDS faith in April of 1945. Due to persecution, he had to leave almost immidiately, heading to Nauvoo, Illinois. Much of the rest of the Gardner/Livington families also joined the LDS church.
- Once in Nauvoo, Archibald had to move his family to the Salt Lake Valley nearly immidiately. He became a "Captain of 10" on the treck westward.
- When Archie and "Peg," (Margaret) got their first view of the Salt Lake Valley, he asked his wife how she liked it. She sat down and cried.
- Archibald made building and running mills his occupation throughout his life, both in Canada and in Utah and Wyoming. He built over 30 mills during the course of his life.
- Plural marriage, or polygamy, was a difficult doctrine for Archibald and Margaret to embrace. Before the two of them came to terms with it, it nearly broke up their marriage.

My Scottish Gardners

My Gardners can be traced back to Robert Gardner and Janet Blair, both born in the 1690's in Renfrewshire, Scotland. Their great-grandson, Archibald Gardner, imigrated from Scotland to Canada to the US in the early 1800's. This page is to display, share, and gather more information about these Scottish and American Gardners. Obviously, the page is in the beginning stages - check back from time to time, I don't intend to let it stay this way!



Be advised that this is all information that I was given, not that I researched myself. Aunt Gladys has exhaustive source citations, but I got this information before I knew how important that sort of thing is. I didn't keep any of it. I'm working on getting the source information again, but for now all I really know is that there ARE sources for this. In additon to the information that I have here, I have some more off-line that I'd be happy to share if you're interested.

Archibald Gardner was born September 2, 1814, in Kilsythe, Stirling, Scotland, the sixth child of Robert Gardner and Margaret Calinder. He immigrated to Canada with his mother, following his father, in 1822 and settled in Dalhousie with his family. In 1835 he followed his brother William to Warwick, where he farmed and built two grist (flour) mills and a saw mill. He married Margaret Livingston February 19, 1839 (12 children: Robert, Neil, Archibald, Janet, Fanny, Margaret, Sarah, Mary Ellen, Abbie, Rachel Maria, Delila, and Carrie Andrus (adopted)). He first heard the restored gospel in March 1845 and was baptized the following month. The extended Gardner family traveled to Nauvoo, arriving after the Saints had left the city, then moved on to Winter Quarters. In June 1847 Archibald and his family left for the Salt Lake Valley in Bishop Edward Hunter's company, Archibald serving as a captain of ten (including the families of his brothers William and Robert and others from Warwick). They arrived in Salt Lake City September 29.

The following year Archie and Robert constructed a saw mill and a grist mill on Mill Creek. In 1849 Archibald married Abigail Sprague Bradford (widow of Hial Bradford, whose five children became part of the Gardner household) and her daughter Mary Ann (one child: Mary Elizabeth). In 1850 Archie and Robert built a saw mill and in 1853 a grist mill on the Jordan River. In 1858, in the face of the threat of the Utah War Archibald's family, consisting of nine wives, fifteen children, seven step-children and an adopted Indian girl (Fanny), moved to Spanish Fork. Archibald left behind a homestead at Mill Creek, the mills in the canyon above, a grist mill and carding machine on the Big Cottonwood stream, a grist mill and saw mill on the Jordan River, and the "big hay field" of about 1,000 acres in the river bottoms in the southern end of Salt Lake Valley. Archie began to build a large home for his family in Spanish Fork.

The following spring President Brigham Young sent word for Archibald to come to Salt Lake City to be ordained bishop of the West Jordan Ward, which occurred in March or April of 1859. He served in the territorial legislature from 1878-1882. In 1886 he spent several months in Mexico to escape the federal marshals, who were on the trail of polygamists. In 1889 he moved to Star Valley, Wyoming, to escape the persecution. From this time his family were spread across three locations, Spanish Fork, West Jordan, and Afton, Wyoming. In May of 1891 he was released as bishop of the West Jordan Ward, having served for 32 years. Archibald Gardner died February 8, 1902, in West Jordan.
