Fun facts about Dewitt Clinton Reed

Surnames: Reed, Warner, Webb, Owens
Dewitt Clinton Reed was one of the original Pioneers of Fillmore, and attended the first Sunday on 2 Nov 1851. He turned 4 years old the next day. Dewitt Reed's Step father, Orange Warner was a lumberman who built the first lumber mill in Fillmore off the west bank of Chalk Creek along with his sons. The sawed timbers were brought by ox team from Copley's Grove. The saw mill was a major area of interest as it was the first industrial plant in Fillmore. The mill had to be guarded night and day from the local Indians. The mill was later converted to a flour mill known as the "Lower Mill". (from "100 Years of History of Millard County, DUP Millard")

Dewitt Reed served a mission for the Emigration movement in 1860, during the time of the Civil War. He went with the teamsters who left Fillmore for Missouri with Captain John R Murdock to return with converted saints traveling west, returning Elders, animals, and supplies. Capt. Murdock went back again in May 1862 to Florence Nebraska to bring Danish immigrants west. Marcellus Webb, Dewitt Reed's future brother-in-law, went with this company. They returned 27 Sep 1862. Later, in 1863, Dewitt's step brother Marcellus Warner and Marcellus Webb went with Capt Samuel White to Florence to bring yet more immigrants to Fillmore. They were harassed by US soldiers at Sweetwater Wyoming. In 1864 Capt Murdock took another band of Fillmore teamsters including Dewitt's brothers Hostien Warner and Orange Warner, as well as Marcellus Webb. The Dewsnip Family returned with this company. Although the teamsters were targets of the US military at Camp Floyd and on the frontier, away from their family traveling the prairies, there was a great incentive to serve these missions as called. Many of the Warner brothers married girls they helped to bring west. Marcellus Warner married his passenger Christian Brown. Hostien Warner married Ann Dewsnip.

Dewitt Clinton Reed stayed in Fillmore after his service in 1860, and by doing so he built a relationship with another local primary pioneer, Caroline Amelia Webb. They married in Feb 1865 in Salt Lake City in the Endowment House, the year Abraham Lincoln was shot. Memorial services were held in the Fillmore State House on the 19th April 1865. No Mormon soldiers were called to serve in the Civil War as the US government had volunteers from California at Camp Floyd to watch the Mormons and insure peace for Utah. The US government still doubted the loyalty of the members LDS church. In the spring of 1865 a telegraph line was placed through Utah, connecting Utah to the outside world for the first time, before radio, television, cell phones, or internet.

The men of Millard County were called to fight in the beginning of the Black Hawk War in 1865. Captain James Clark Owens, Caroline Amelia Webb Reed's uncle, was given orders to stop the pursuit of Black Hawk himself in 1865, as the settlers were out numbered. Dewitt was 19 years old when he served in the Black Hawk War under James Clark Owens for 6 months as a patrolman. The settlers would later hunt down and kill the Indian cattle thieves. Dewitt worked as a stock-man and livestock dealer, presumably with his step brothers, trading and selling cattle and horses until his death.
