Families resided at Salt Lake City.

In connection with the above genealogy the following is from the Life of Heber C. Kimball, by Orson F. Whitney. “In the foregoing lists we have classed together the wives who were the mothers of his children. Besides these there were many others, most of them aged ladies and widows whom he merely supported, without living with them. Following is a list of their name

Mary Fielding Smith (widow of Hyrum Smith, sealed to Heber for time), Margaret McMinn, Hannah Moon, Dorothy Moon, Adelia Wilcox, Huldah Barnes, Eliza Cravath, Mary Ann Shefflin, Charlotte Chase, Theresa Morley, Ruth L. Pierce, Maria Winchester, Laura Pitkin, Abigail Pitkin, Ruth Wellington, Abigail Buchanan, Sophronia Harmon, Sarah Stiles, Elizabeth Hereford, Rebecca Williams, Sarah Buckwater, Mary Dull.

Thus it will be seen that Heber C. Kimball was the husband of forty-five wives (at the funeral of his wife Vilate, Heber, pointing to the coffin, said: “There lies a woman who has given me forty-four wives.”) and the father of sixty-five children. Truly a patriarchal household.

It may well be surmised that the government and support of a family of such dimensions were no small tax upon the wisdom, patience and provident care of even the wisest and most opulent. Forever banished be the thought aspersion upon reason and consistency as it is that self seeking, ease-desiring human nature would take upon itself such burdens and responsibilities from any motive less honorable and pure than that which Mormonism maintains is the true one. Luxury and lust go frequently hand in hand: licentiousness and honest toil but rarely.

Heber C. Kimball was a man of Industry, a man of virtue, of self-denial, who would sooner have thought of severing his right hand from his body, than to have cherished an unchaste sentiment, or sacrificed a principle to sin or selfish ease. He was often heard to declare that the plural order of marriage, with its manifold cares and perplexities, had cost him “bushels of tears.”

Yet his was an exemplary family as much so as any in all Israel, polygamous or otherwise. His wives loved each other as sisters, and dwelt together in peace and unity; while his children, especially the males, sons of various mothers, clung together with an affection all but clannish in its intensity. Woe betide the luckless wight, who even in childhood’s days, imposed upon a boy ” The whole family of urchins would resent the Insult, and that, too, with pluckiness surpassing even their numbers.

Family prayer was an Institution in the Kimball household. Morning and evening the members were called in to surround the family altar and offer up praise and petitions to the Throne of Grace. It is a common remark to this day that such prayers are seldom heard as were wont to issue from the heart and lips of Heber C. Kimball. Reverence for Deity was one of the noticeable features that the God to whom he prayed was a being “near at hand and not afar off.” He worshiped not as “a worm of the dust” hypocritically meek and lowly, or as one conscious of naught but the meanness of his nature, and the absence of merit in his cause. But in a spirit truly humble, confessing his sins, yet knowing something of the nobility of his soul, he talked with God “as one man talketh with another”; and often with the ease and familiarity of an old-time friend.

On “no occasion, while offering up an earnest appeal in behalf of certain of his fellow-creatures, he startled the kneeling circle by bursting into a loud laugh in the very midst of his prayer. Quickly regaining his composure and solemn address, he remarked, apologetically: Lord, it makes me laugh to pray about some people. Heber loved his children, and was justly proud of his numerous noble posterity. If at times he appeared stern, and was severe in his correction, it was not that he loved them less, but their welfare and salvation more. He made no compromise with sin, but nipped it in the bud, though the soil wherein it grew were the hearts of his dearest friends and relations. His greatest desire for his family was that they should be humble virtuous and God-fearing. The riches, fashions, and even culture of the world were as nothing in his eyes, compared with honesty, morality and the treasures of eternal truth.

Nor was he morose and sullen, because thus sober minded and religious. Mingling with his deeply earnest, profoundly solemn nature was a keen sense of humor, a continuous play of mirth, like “sunlight gilding the edges First counselor to President Brigham Young in the presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints until his death, 1868. Visited Kirtland, Ohio, late in 1832, and met the Prophet Joseph Smith on November 8. In 1834 went to Jackson county, Missouri, with Joseph Smith. Brigham Young and about 200 others. February 14, 1835, was made a member of first body of the twelve apostles, and accompanied them in their first preaching mission in the eastern states and Canada. In 1837 was placed at the head of the first mission to England; returned in 1838, going to Far-West, Caldwell county Missouri. Returned to England 1840, founding the London conference with Wilford Woodruff and George A. Smith.

Returning to Nauvoo in 1841 and accepting the principles of plural marriage taught to him by the Prophet Joseph, Smith who also practiced it. his eldest daughter, Helen Mar Kimball, was sealed to the Prophet in full ritualistic form. (See Whitney’s history of Utah, Vol. IV, page 19). _ Performed various missions to eastern states and constantly sustained President Young as the rightful successor to Joseph Smith after his death.

Left Nauvoo and joined the migrating church members at Sugar Creek, Iowa, January 14, 1846. That summer he recruited the Mormon Battalion on the Missouri river; came to Utah with Brigham Young July 24, 1847; and returned with him to Winter Quarters. December 27, 1847, when the first presidency of the church (unorganized since the death of the Prophet) was organized, he became first counselor to President Brigham Young, and Willard Richards second counselor. May, 1848, started on return trip to Utah, arriving there September 20. First chief justice of the provisional government of Deseret, and lieutenant governor. He introduced at the general conference the subject of the Perpetual Immigration Fund Company, which was forthwith organized. President of the council branch (senate) of the State of Deseret legislature March, 1851, and again of the Territory of Utah September, 1851. Assisted President Brigham Young in laying the southeast cornerstone of the Salt Lake temple April 6, 1853, and offered thereon the prayer of consecration.

During the famine of 1856 he fed hundreds from his provisions, having to put his own families on short rations to feed those who were destitute. Sent his sons William H. and David P. with wagons of food and bedding in connection with the relief corps to assist the belated handcart companies caught in the early snows along the Platte and Sweetwater rivers, thus saving hundreds of lives from perishing, as their companions had. Whitney, in his history, says of him:

“Preaching, colonizing, traveling through the settlements, encouraging the saints in their toils and sacrifices, sitting in council with church leaders, ministering in sacred places, and in various other ways playing the part of a public benefactor so wore away the remaining earthly years of President Kimball. His name is a household word wherever his people dwelt, and ‘Brother Heber’ was everywhere honored and beloved even the Gentiles esteemed him, admiring his high courage and outspoken candor.” He died at Provo June 22, 1868, principally, as the result of an accident, by the overturning of a vehicle in which he was riding at night.
