Sybil Bliss

by Mavis Buchanan

SYBIL BLISS LATHROP JACOBS was born in Tolland, Tolland County, Connecticut, 7 January, 1791(sic disputed), the first child of John Bliss and Lydia Chamberlain. She was a great-great granddaughter of immigrant, Thomas Bliss, who settled in Connecticut about 1638. He was a wealthy land owner and Puritan of the Belstone Parish, England, and because of his faith was persecuted, maltreated, impoverished and imprisoned, was finally reduced to poverty and his health was ruined, by the Church of England. This ancestor died shortly after reaching the New England shores.

Sybil married Grant Lathrop, a carpenter, descended from the Reverend John Lathrop, a Pilgrim minister who fearlessly proclaimed in New England as well as old, England beliefs. He, likewise, was persecuted and imprisoned. His distinction to religious freedom was Massachusetts, in 1634. His posterity was great.

Six children were born to Sybil and Grant. When the youngest child was three, Grant died, 21 March 1823, the oldest child was sixteen. The children born to them were, Emily Sophia, Asahel A., Solomon B., Lydia Maria, Horace K., and Osman M.

Records indicate there were many Bliss families that migrated west to Western New York, including Sybil Bliss' father, to the neighborhood of Palmyra. Sybil and her young family were there in 1830. The family was in the right place at the right time, to hear and accept the concepts of the new gospel. Emily, the oldest child was baptized in the Mormon church in 1835. possibly others of the family were baptized at that time. It is known for sure that three of Sybil's children joined the church, also, Sybil. The family seemed to be involved with the movements and activities within the church. They moved with the body of the church to Kirtland, Missouri and Nauvoo, suffering and enduring the hatred and atrocities of the enemies of the church. By this time, Sybil's children had married and had families of their own.

Sybil was married to Dana Jacobs (sic Henry), in Nauvoo, about 1840 There was no issue with this marriage. Dana was the son of Stephen Jacobs and Ruth Chapins. In spite of the turmoil and unrest the saints were going through at this time, the Nauvoo Temple was completed. Temple ordinances and baptisms for the dead were being performed. In January, 1846, the Jacobs, along with thousands of others were rushing to the temple before the westward journey toward Zion began. Records indicate that Zilpha Mills Jacobs, Dana's wife, stood proxy for some of the ordinances done for Sybil's family, which would indicate that Sybil was living as a polygamist wife to Dana. Zilpha was Dana's first wife. Ordinance work was done for family members, parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, and children, which, also, verified and made clear family records of Sybil's.

Sybil received a patriarchal blessing, by Patriarch John Smith, that further indicated her parents. Genealogists, in later years, had been unable to find who her parents were. These church records, when they were discovered, were the answer.

Sybil was voted a member of the Relief Society in Nauvoo.

She left Nauvoo, going west, probably with family members, Michael and Emily Jacobs, and their family. She and her husband, Dana (sic)Jacobs, took different paths and were not together again in her lifetime. He went east to Ohio and married two other women in Ashtabula, Ohio. The marriage to Dana Jacobs must have meant a great deal to her as she kept the name of Jacobs the remainder of her life.

At least three of her children, with their families, joined the exodus of the Saints, crossing the Mississippi River, going west, not knowing where....

...Sybil's (BLISS LATHROP JACOBS) three children (LATHROP), with their spouses and their children, totaled almost 30 pioneers who crossed the plains in the period of time between 1846 to 1852. Her two daughters died, also, two grandchildren and Emily's husband. Two grandsons crossed the plains twice, going back after the first crossing, to help their families along. Two grandchildren died in Fillmore, one killed by Indians and one being murdered for disclosing a secret she knew of the Mountain Meadows Massacre. Sybil, in her lifetime, crossed an entire nation by wagon and on foot, from Connecticut to California. She was a true pioneer of her day.

The 1860 U.S. Census shows Sybil living with her grandson, John R. Frink's family, also, grandsons, Asahel and Hyrum (Hoagland) Jacobs were with her, living in San Bernardino.

The 1870 U.S. Census shows her living with Quartus Sparks, age 43. still in San Bernardino. She was 82 years old. A little research revealed that he was the son of Quartus Strong Sparks, a member of the group of converts who sailed in the ship, Brooklyn. His wife, Mary, and his young son, Quartus, sailed with him. They landed at Yerba Buena, San Francisco, in 1846. Quartus, the father, had been a great strength for the church in San Bernardino. He crossed the church authorities there and was excommunicated. His wife, Mary, left him and moved to Salt Lake where she married again. Quartus, the son was living with Sybil. Quartus Sr. became one of the church's severest critics and became a leader in the Reorganized Church. Sybil joined with the Reorganized Latter Day Saint Church on 26 June, 1864. On the 1867 branch list, she was known as Libby Jacobs.

Sybil died 17 August, 1879. Her obituary, as found in the San Bernardino Daily Times,
dated, 29 September, 1879, was brief….."Died. In Temescal, (Riverside County) at the residence of her son, A. A. Lathrop, Sibble Bliss Jacobs of Vermont, aged 93 years (sic), 8 months and 11 days. (New England and Michigan papers please copy." (Her birth date as noted in her history does not agree with her death age by a couple of years).


Lydia Marie Lathrop

LYDIA MARIE LATHROP, a daughter of Sybil Jacobs, married Samuel Brown, in 1837, at Kirtland, Ohio, when she was 21 years old. Samuel had been married before to Harriet Cooper, who died. When Lydia Marie married Samuel she became the mother of 5 year old, Samuel, named after his father.

Samuel had marched with Zion's Camp. Samuel Brown is a common name. There were other Samuel Browns in the Camp, so, Samuel added his mother's maiden name to his name that made him known as Samuel Webster Brown, or some called him "shoemaker" Brown because of his profession.

The first child born to them was a daughter in Missouri, name, Emily Sophia, born in 1838. Mary W., born in Missouri, 1839, died while they were living in Nauvoo. Other children were born in Nauvoo but did not survive.

After much persecution, they were among the last of the Saints to leave Nauvoo to cross the plains. They settled in Des Moines, Iowa, for a time, where David was born in 1847. Traveling westward, Samuel and Lydia, birthed twins, John and George Austin, in the early 1850's.

The Brown family left Council Bluff, July 10, 1852, as members of the Captain Allen Weeks Company. It had been almost 6 years since they left Nauvoo. All seemed to go well as they followed the pioneer trail across the state of Nebraska. When they camped near the North Platte River, just before the road passes over into Wyoming, tragedy struck the camp. Mother, Lydia Marie, was stricken with the dreaded sickness, cholera. She passed away, one of 13 deaths in that Company. She is buried some where on the plains. The family traveled on and arrived in Salt Lake, October, 1852. Soon to be 16 years old, Emily Sophia, assumed the role of motherhood for her little brothers and helped her father along the way.

Samuel Webster Brown and his family were sent on to Fillmore, Utah, when they arrived in Salt Lake. Grandmother Sybil Jacobs must have been surprised and happy to see this family as she was there when they arrived. There would have been sadness, too. Both of her daughters died as pioneers crossing the plains.


John Wortley Manwill 1791-1882


(by Alan Manwill)

John Wortley Manwill was born May 8, 1791, in Litchfield, Lincoln County, Maine. He was the son of Samuel Manwill and Polly Wortley. Of Samuel Manwll very little is known. John Wortley Manwill lists his father in the 1870 U.S. Census as having been born in England. With Polly Wortley he had three children, Susanna (born January 22, 1787), Martha (born January 4, 1789), and John Wortley Manwill, the youngest child. All three were born in Litchfield and are listed together as having been born to "Manual and Polly his wife. "
Polly Wortley was born in Maine. The Wortley family had already been in New England for several generations. The same town record that lists the birth of John Wortley Manwill and his sisters, also lists the intention of marriage of Polly Manual to Abner True of Litchfield, filed January 2, 1796. Since divorce was virtually nonexistent in those days we can fairly safely assume that Samuel Manwill must have passed away in the previous few years. Polly Wortley and Abner True had six children of their own which lived together with John Wortley Manwill and his sisters.
In 1812, at the age of 21, John Wortley Manwill enlisted for duty in the War of 1812. His enlistment papers describe him as being five-feet, six-inches tall, having blue eyes and dark brown hair. He listed his occupation as farmer. He began duty November 6, 1812, in Capt. David C. Burr's company, volunteer regiment of Litchfield, Kennebec, Maine. He spent the first six months at a temporary fort on the Connecticut River. In June 1813, his company joined the Maine Army at Burlington, Vermont. He was transferred to Capt. Nathan Stanley's company, commanded by Col. Denny McCobb, and served aboard a sloop-of-war for six weeks on Lake Champlain. He then served on the Canadian lines until discharged December 1, 1813. He was paid $86. 59 for his thirteen months of duty.
On April, 21, 1822, he married Susannah Booker in Maine. She died two years later on April 24, 1824. On March 26, 1826, he married Patty P. Tracy in Durham, Androscoggin, Maine. She was the daughter of Samuel Tracy and Elizabeth Getchell. The first three children of John Wortley Manwill and Patty P. Tracy were born in a place designated "Letter "B" , Oxford County, Maine. Daniel Booker Manwill ,was born July 4, 1830, John Ferrington Manwill was born December 2, 1832. The third son was James Booker Manwill, born October 5, 1835. It is interesting to note that both Daniel and James had Booker for a middle name, the name of John Wortley Manwill's first wife.
It is said that in 1838, John Wortley Manwill heard the Mormon missionaries in Maine and moved the family west to Ohio. By 1840 the family had definitely come in contact with Mormonism. A son born March 6, 1840, was named Orson Moroni Manwill. He was born at Spring Creek, Miami County, Ohio, a place 20-30 miles north of Dayton, Ohio. On May 6, 1843, a daughter, Mary Elizabeth Manwill was born at Houston, Shelby County, Ohio, a small town a few miles to the north of where Orson Moroni Manwill was born.
Early Church records show that John Wortley Manwill was baptized in June of 1845. That same year on December 19, John Wortley Manwill and Patty P. Tracy received their patriarchal blessings from John Smith in Nauvoo, Illinois.
In December of 1846,, a daughter, Edith Manwill, was born in Van Buren County, Iowa, about 30-40 miles northwest of Nauvoo. She died shortly after birth. Not long afterwards, Patty P. Tracy also passed away in Van Buren County on January 20, 1847. A history of Van Buren County cemeteries states that a group of Mormons who fled Nauvoo after the persecution there, spent the winter, 1846-7, near the mouth of Reed Creek and buried a number of their dead in that spot. It is probable that the Manwill family was among that group. Patty P. Tracy was 39 years old at the time of her death.
In 1851, John Wortley Manwill listed his residence as Atchison County, Missouri (the far northwest corner of the state and directly south of Winter Quarters), on War of 1812 pension records. Much of this record and subsequent records were written in his own hand and show that he had at least a moderate education.
In 1852, at age 61, John Wortley Manwill and his family crossed the plains to Utah with the Capt. Jolley Company which had 159 men, 130 women, and 63 wagons. The Manwill family is listed on Company records as being in the second ten, W. R. Terry, captain. John Wortley Manwill is shown to have with him, four males, two females, two wagons, eight oxen, two cows, two horses, and fourteen hens. Of the four males and two females, John Wortley Manwill's children would account for all but one of the females. Who the other female might be can only be speculated. The Capt. Jolley Company arrived in Salt Lake City on September 9, 1852.
John Wortley Manwill and family lived in the Salt Lake City 2nd Ward where he was ordained a high priest in March 1853. On December 18, 1853, he married Losana Bentley, a widow from Pennsylvania, in the Endowment House. She died September 25, 1870.
It was probably in 1854 that the Manwill family moved to Payson, Utah in southern Utah County. Church records place the family there as early as February 1855. Church records show them in the Payson 2nd Ward in 1860. It was in Payson where John Wortley Manwill spent the remainder of his days.
The 1860 U. S. Census lists John Wortley Manwill as a farmer. His real estate was valued at $500 and his personal estate at $700. Although not rich,. this made him a little better off than most Payson residents. The 1870 U. S. Census lists his real estate at $350 and personal estate at $300. A 13 year old girl named Charity Kinder is listed as dwelling with them. The Census lists her as "domestic help. "
On December 3, 1870, he married Ann Chalice Gerrett, his fourth 'Wife. She outlived him and died on September 12, 1887. Beginning in February 1871, he received a pension of eight dollars a month for his military service in the War of 1812. He died in Payson on March 10, 1882, at the age of 90. He was buried in the Payson Cemetery.

Vital Statistics of Litchfield, Maine This lists the birth of John Wortley Manwill, his sisters, and also the second marriage of Polly Wortley to Abner True.

Church Records John Wortley Manwill's patriarchal blessing lists his date of birth, place of birth, and names of parents. This information was provided by himself at the time of the blessing. Ordination and marriage records corroborate dates, names, and places as provided by John Wortley Manwill in the War of 1812 pension records.
Payson Cemetery Records These provide dates of birth and death for John Wortley Manwill, his last two wives, and several children. They also list his parents and are in agreement with other records.
Perpetual Immigration Fund Records These records contain the record of the Capt. Jolley company and list the number of people and type of property of each family in the company.
U.S. Census Records, 1830, 1860, 1870 These provide information on location, family, and value of property.
1. In 1791, Litchfield was part of Lincoln County, Maine. A few years later the county boundaries were changed and Litchfield was in Kennebec County, Maine.
2. There has been some question as to John Wortley Manwill's father and the origin of the Manwill line. There are several undocumented and highly speculative reports that list his father' s name as James, Nathaniel, or Samuel. John Wortley Manwill on his patriarchal blessing lists his father's name as Samuel. It is also listed as Samuel on other church records where the information would have been supplied by John Wortley Manwill himself. It is also listed as Samuel on John's tombstone. James and Nathaniel Manwill lived in Maine but in a different town. It can only be guessed if they were even related to Samuel Manwill. One report lists Samuel Manwill as having been born in Bakerstown, Maine, but is undocumented. However, in the 1870 U. S. Census, John Wortley Manwill lists his father as having been born in England. It should be noted that his step-father was from Maine but John Wortley Manwill always listed his father as Samuel Manwill and never as Abner True. Several reports list Anthony Manuel, a French-Canadian, as the grand- father of John Wortley Manwill. Once again, no documentation of this is given, and it would appear to contradict the information provided by John Wortley Manwill himself. In all these cases of contradictory information the data supplied by John Wortley Manwill himself obviously carries more weight than undocumented speculation passed on by researchers of later generations.
3. It should be noted that there were two John Manwill's in Oxford County, Maine during the time that John Wortley Manwill lived there. The other lived in the town of Jay, Maine.

Some 300 years ago, dating back seven generations, we find a John Wortley born
1653 in Bedforshire, England. He married Martha Bailey, a daughter of Robert and
Martha Clark Bailey to whom nine children were born at Bedfordshire, England. We
will choose to follow Thomas, third son of John Wortley and Martha Bailey Wortley. He
was born at Bedfordshire, England in 1691. Not being too congenial with his
stepmother, and being of a venturesome disposition, he ran away from home at the
restless age of 14 years, stowing away on a ship sailing to America and landing safely at
Salem, Mass. in 1705. Seeking employment he moved about to Londonburry, Worcester,
Weare, Mass. etc. Being industrious he acquired a home at Worcester where he met and
married Mehitable Yarrow of North Yarmouth, Maine. They were parents of 8 children.
He later married Mehitable Ordman. Thomas was a public spirited citizen and builder of
Weare, Mass and lived to the fine age of 108 years. (He was a N.H. signer of the
Declaration of Independence of 1776.)
We will now follow John Wortley, 2nd child of Thomas and Mehitable Yarrow
Wortley, who was born Feb. 1740 at Litchfield, Maine. He served as captain in 3
divisions of the Revolutionary Army of 1776. To John and Martha Wortley, 12 children
were born. He died 7 June 1810 and Martha died 14 June 1817 at Weare, Mass. Mary
(or Molly) Wortley was born 25 Aug. 1766 at North Yarmouth, Maine, the 4th child of
John and Martha Wortley. She first (should be second) married Abner True of Litchfield,
Maine. Molly had 2 daughters, Susannah and Martha True. After Abner's passing, Mary
(Molly Wortley True married Samuel of Bakerstown, Maine in 1790. (These two events
are just opposite from the way they actually happened). Change of Manuel name came at
this time. Samuel Manuel was the son of Anthony Manuel, an Arcadian and a
Frenchman. He had 2 brothers, Nathanial and James Manuel of Poland, Maine. There
being five or six families by the name of Manuel or Manual, which created much public
confusion. Samuel Manuel, who was known by various surnames, decided to adopt the
name Manwill, which he did legally. Anthony Manuel, Samuel's father, died in 1800 at
the age of 90 years. James and Nathanial kept the name Manuel, and therefore lost their
identity with their brother Samuel Manwill and his descendants. Thus Samuel Manwill
of North Yarmouth, Maine and Mary (Molly) True became the parents of John Wortley
Manwill born 8 May 1791, Litchfield, Lincoln Co., Maine. The name Wortley given
John was his mother's maiden name. John Wortley Manwill, later of Poland, Maine, first
married Susan Booker of Lincoln, Co., Maine. She was born 17 Oct. 1808. No record of
any children is known. Susan died in 1824. After her demise, John Wortley Manwill
met and married Martha (Patty) Tracy of Durham, Maine on the 26th of March 1826.
Martha (Patty) Tracy was the daughter of Samuel Tracy and Elizabeth Getchell of
Brunswick, Maine. To John Wortley Manwill and Patty Tracy 5 children were born:
1. Daniel Booker Manwill, born 22 Sept. 1830 at Letter "B" (rural route) Oxford
Co., Maine. Died 28 Nov. 1866 at Payson, Utah.
2. John Ferrington Manwill, born 2 Dec. 1832, Letter "B", Oxford, Maine.
3. James Booker Manwill, born 5 Oct. 1835, Letter "B", Oxford Co., Maine.
4. Orson Moroni Manwill, born 6 Mar 1840 at Spring Creek, Ohio.
5. Mary Elizabeth Manwill, born 6 May 1844 at Houston, Shelby Co. , Ohio.
Patty Tracy died 20 Jan. 1847 at Van Buren, Iowa following a premature child-
birth. This was a severe blow to John Wortley Manwill and his now five motherless
We shall turn back in our history to the early life of John Wortley Manwill and
Patty Tracy Manwill, who were prosperous and progressive citizens of Durham, Maine.
During the War of 1812, John Wortley Manwill, patriot, enlisted as a private in the U.S.
Army in defense of his country. At the end of the war he was honorably discharged and
received timber grants in Maine for his military services by the government. In the
Military records at Washington D. C. he is listed as private John Wortley Manwill,
Litchfield, Maine; but nowhere in the records of Maine or the L. D. S. Church History is
the name Manwill spelled with an "e". Those using an "e" instead of an "i" in the
Manwill name are either misspelling or creating a name of their own. John Wortley
Manwill and Patty Tracy Manwill acquired valuable timber lands and mills in Maine.
They kept a country store on West Purgatory Creek for the convenience of their timber
and mill crews and families. Being of a devout and strong character, and learning of the
restored gospel of Jesus Christ through the Prophet Joseph Smith, and brought to them by
the L. D. S. missionaries, which he accepted, he could not shake off the desire to join the
saints in Nauvoo. Following this inspiration, he sold, at a great sacrifice, all his worldly
possessions in Maine to his partner, Henry Jewell on the 15th of Feb. 1840. Part of this
deal was transacted by Lloyds of Boston, Mass. After selling out, John W. and his wife
Patty with their few earthly possessions and their little family, headed their prairie
schooner westward to cast their lots with the most talked and very unpopular Mormon
Church. Through all the early persecutions and hardships, neither John W. nor his wife
Patty ever faltered. Several years of this strenuous life was spent in Iowa. Following the
loss of dear Patty, Jan. 20, 1847, once again John W. had the urge to join the many saints
making their way west to Utah. With his four sons and his daughter only 7 years old he
joined up with captain Jolley's Company which reached Salt Lake, Utah Sept. 1852,
making a temporary home for a few years in Salt Lake.
Soon after his arrival he married Losania Bentley, a widow and a very fine
woman. She was born at Sugar Creek, Penn. 4 April 1813. Having to part with dear
Losania in a few short years, he looked about and came across dear Ann Garrett Challis
another widow who made him a very kind helpmate until his death in March 10, 1882 at
Payson, Utah, 91 years of age, having been a most successful farmer and businessman in
Utah for better than 25 years. Ann Challis Manwill died five years later in 12 Sept. 1887
at Payson, Utah. His four sons and daughter Mary all married well and were sealed in the
Salt Lake Endowment House. Their families are listed as follows: (Having no children
by Susan Booker John W. gave the Booker name to two of his sons. Patty Tracy was the
mother of his children.)
1. Daniel Booker Manwill, born 22 Sept. 1830 at Oxford Co. , Maine. He
married Mary Amanda Shumway, Payson, Utah, who died in March 1866. Daniel was

Payson 30 Nov. 1866. Their children were Ammi who was drowned while fording Bear
River in Idaho, at about the age of 20 years. Also there was a daughter Olivia, who
married Issac Hatch of Koosharem, Utah.
