    • Hannah Wagle Carson
      Berniece' application for membership in DUP says 1843 is when she was born in Hancock County, Illinois on 10 Dec 1843. That she came to Utah with the Captain Harrison Company in 1852. according to the application for membership to the daughters of the Utah Pioneers by our ancestor Berniece Miller Evans on 15 June 1945 (of which I have a copy from Larae Romberg.)
      Her parents are listed as Jacob John Waggle and Mary Vance (Vancel) in the Ancestral File

      in 2005-- one source says her name was Hannah Price

      Hannah's father died when she was two years old. Her mother married Thomas Adair two years later. In the year of 1852, Hannah was nine years old when she came with her family across the Plains. They were in Captain Harrison's Wagon Company and passed through many hardships on the journey westward. When they reached the Salt Lake Valley, they settled at Salt Creek which is now Nephi. Then her family was called to Washington County in 1961 when she was about 16 to settle the country and this was where she met Valentine Carson. They went back to Nephi to be married and she became his second wife. Hannah's husband made his second trip across the Plains to bring Saints to the Valley which took him seven months, returning to Washington County where they lived through many hardships together. Later, when the St. George Temple was being built, Valentine and Hannah moved to St. George. Valentine did a great deal to help in building the temple. Hannah helped by cooking for the men who worked in the temple. When the temple was completed, they did work for their dead. In the year 1877, they moved with their family to Kanarra. In 1879, they moved to Parowan where they lived for several years, then they moved onto a homestead in the west part of Parowan Valley. When the World War was on, the younger women were sewing for the Red Cross and the older ladies were knitting socks. Hannah knit 36 pair of socks for the soldiers. Besides raising eleven children of her own, she helped to raise her husband's son by a first wife and also a little girl of George Adair's which she nursed and cared for as her own."

      Mrs. Hannah Waggle Carson, of Parowan, passed away at her home in Parowan on the morning of April 1, at four o’clock. She died after suffering from the third paralytic stroke.

      Hannah Waggle Carson was born December 10, 1842 in Hancock County, Illinois; daughter of Jacob and Mary Vancel Waggle. When she was two years old her father died, and when but nine years old she crossed the plains with her grandfather and grandmother, and Mary Vancel, in the ox team company of Captain Harrison, which arrived at Nephi, Utah in the spring of 1851.

      In 1852 her mother and stepfather, Thomas Adair, went to Payson, and she went too. Then later they moved to Provo. When she was fourteen years of age she went with her parents to Washington, where they lived for about four years; then she returned to Payson where she married Valentine Carson in the endowment house at Payson. The ceremony was performed by Bishop Bigler.

      Ten years later she and her husband moved back to Washington, where they lived until about twenty-five years ago, when they moved to Kanarra. They lived there for about five years, then moved to Parowan where she lived until her death.

      She was the mother of eleven children, six of whom survived her. They are: Ellen Tait of Mount Carmel; Lizzie Skougard of Parowan; Will Carson and Emma Davies of Junction; Rebecca Miller of Parowan, and John Carson of Provo. She is also survived by sixty-two grandchildren, and ninety-eight great-grandchildren; also by several great-great-grandchildren. Will Carson, Mrs. Emma Davis and Mildred Morrill of Junction left immediately for Parowan to attend the funeral services of their mother and grandmother.

      Mrs. Carson was well known in Piute County, and was loved by all who knew her. Her Many friends extend sympathy and condolence to the children and loved ones.

      *This obituary is incorrect in stating there was an endowment house in Payson. It was in Salt Lake City.


      Mrs. Hannah Carson, who passed away at the home of her daughter Rebecca Miller, April 1, was born in Hancock County, Illinois, December 10, 1842, the daughter of Jacob and Mary Vancil Wygle. (?) Her own father died when she was two years of age. Two years later her mother married Thomas Adair. In the year of 1852 when but nine years of age she with her mother, step-father, grandfather and grandmother and grandfather Vancil crossed the plains with ox teams in Captain Harrison's company passing through many harships on the journey. She remembered gathering buffalo chips to cook their food. Arriving at Salt Creek which is now Nephi she lived in that part of the country until 16 years of age, after which she went with her people to Washington County were a company of pioneers had been called the year previous (59 and 60) to settle that country. Her future husband was one of them. Two years later she met Valentine Carson. They went back to Nephi where they were married by Bishop Bigler. Her husband then made his second trip across the plains to bring the Saints. It took them seven months to make the trip with ox teams. They returned again to Washington where they went through many more hardships.

      It has been said many times that no other Pioneers suffered more than the Dixie pioneers suffed. They had to build a dam across the Virgin River to get the water onto their lands to keep it from burning up in the scorching sun of the Dixie land before they could raise anything. Mr. Carson worked in the water up to his waist day in and day out to build the dam and was out many nights helping to guard the people against the Indians. He helped to bring in the bodies of Mr. Keele and son who had been killed by the Indians. In the year 1869 Mr. Valentine Carson went back to Salt Lake City and went through the Endowment house. Later when the St. George Temple was being built Mr. Carson and his wife moved to St. George where he did a great deal to help in building the Temple. His wife helped by cooking for the men who worked in the Temple. When the temple was completed they did a great deal of work for their dead. In the year 1877 they with their family moved to Kanarra and through the hardships of the Dixie country Mr. Carson had a sever sick spell from inflamitory rheumatism through which he lost the use of his right arm which was a handicap to him the rest of his life; he was also afflicted with asthma.

      In the Spring of 1879 the family came to Parowan buying the Sam Rowley home where they lived for several years. Then they moved onto a homestead in the West part of Parowan valley. Being unable to work at that time he went back to St. George where he and his wife lived all winter doing work for their dead and a great many others. He was also afflicted with a cancer two years before his death and his good wife waited on him day in and day out, patiently and without any complaint, never wavering in the faith which she had in the gospel.

      Mrs. Carson was not a public woman but a real wife and mother. When the world war was on and the younger women were sewing for the Red Cross, the older ladies were knitting socks, Mrs. Carson knit 36 pairs of socks for the soldier boys.

      Besides her leaving eleven children of her own, she helped to raise her husband’s son by a first wife and also a little girl of George Adair’s which she nursed and cared for as her own. She has buried three babies and three grown daughters. Those that remain are Mrs. Nell Tait of Mt. Carmel, Mr. W.F. Carson and Mrs. Emma Davis of Junction, John Carson of Provo, Mrs. Lizzie Skougard and Mrs. Rebecca Miller of Parowan. She was Grandmother of 61, Great-grandmother of 98 and Great-great-grandmother of 1.
