Vital Records

1880 US Census - St Johns AZ

In May, 1879, the entire Richey family left Washington, Utah, headed for the upper Gila Valley in southern Arizona. They had been called to settle there by Apostle Erastus Snow. The family consisted of James and Lucinda Mangum Richey and all of their married and unmarried children and grandchildren. The unmarried children were James Moroni (31), Margaret Emily (19), Elinor Jane(15), and Jemima Susana Richey (12). The married children and grandchildren were William Hubbell and Lucinda Charlotte Richey Sherwood and their two children: Charlotte (3) and Lucinda Luella (2); John F. and Rebecca Ruth Richey Sherwood and their two children: Maud Ruth (3), and Estella Lucinda (2); and Joseph Benjamin (24) and Eugenia Pace Richey (19) who were childless at this time. These were all of James and Lucinda Richey’s living descendants. The family traveled with 40 yoke of oxen, 7 wagons, 150 head of loose cattle and some very fine horses.

The two lead wagons carried a sawmill owned by William Hubbell and were pulled by 6 yoke of oxen each. Ruth and her two little girls were in the 3rd wagon. Charlotte with her two girls drove a team of horses with the 4th wagon.

The company traveled very slowly, and they were very, very happy together. Every night before prayers, father Richey called his family together and they sang. One of the songs they sang every night was, “Nearer Home”. They also sang this song later when the family would get together and at funerals.

They stopped at Pahreah, Utah], for about three months to graze and feed their cattle. While there, Will was born, becoming the oldest and only son of Charlotte and William Hubbell to live to adulthood. He had two other brothers born later, who both died in early childhood and six sisters. In Sunset, Arizona, near Winslow, they were asked by apostle Wilford Woodruff to help settle the new town of St. Johns in Apache County, instead of going south to the Gila Valley. After nine months of traveling, they arrived in St. Johns in March of 1880.
