James Wardrop, born in 1848, in St Louis, Missouri, ---------
It appears was born when John Wardrop and his family left
Navoo, Illinois , stayed awhile in St Louis to have his son in
in 1848. He and his wife Lucy Mcintosh Wardrop eventually
took his family on the Morman Trail, with the Bryant Jolly Co.
to Salt Lake City in 1852. I know he was a carprender and help build the Morman Temple in Navoo.

My name is James Evans, My father Sterling Douglas Evans, my granfather Sterling Castle Evans and his wife
Isabel Wardrop Rogerson, her mother Isabel Wardrop
born in 1846 in Navoo, Illinois, Her father John Wardrop.

I would apreciate any information on the John Wardrop and
Lucy Mcintosh family.

Nice to know there is a connection with my granmother's side of the family.

"FIFTEENTH COMPANY. -- Sydney, 180 souls. On Saturday, September 17th, 1842, the ship Sidney, Captain Cowen, sailed from Liverpool, with one hundred and eighty Saints on board, under the direction of Elder Levi Richards, bound for Nauvoo, via New Orleans. George D. Watt the first man baptized in England, who emigrated with this company, writes from New Orleans, under date of November 13th, 1842, as follows: 'We have had a passage of fifty-six days -- fine weather -- with a kind captain and crew, who allowed us every reasonable privilege. There have been five deaths out of the company, and one sailor who fell from the yard arm and was killed. The dead are: Brother Yates' eldest child, Sister Cannon, (mother of President George Q. Cannon,) Brother Browne's child and two children belonging to a man who is not in the Church. We stuck up on the sand bar at the north of the river (Mississippi) thirty-four hours. About two hours after we got off, the Medford came on the bar, where she stuck thirty hours. We landed here (New Orleans), on the eleventh instant and the Medford arrived today the thirteenth. She lies about ten yards from us. * * * We have taken one of the largest and best steamboats in this port. We pay two dollars and fifty cents per head, and twenty-five cents per one hundred pounds above the weight allowed each person, which is one hundred pounds. We are all going up together; i. e. The Sidney and Medford passengers.' After tarrying three days at New Orleans, the emigrants embarked on the steamer Alexander Scott and made rapid progress till they had passed the mouth of the Ohio River, when they ran aground and remained fast three days. After getting clear again they continued the journey to within ninety miles of St. Louis, where the vessel had to remain three weeks for want of water. When the emigrants finally arrived at St. Louis, it was the dead of winter, and the river being frozen up above that city, it became necessary for the Saints to remain there for a while until communication opened up again with the towns on the upper Mississippi. Without much difficulty houses and provisions were secured, and the remainder of the winter was spent quite comfortably in St. Louis. In April, 1843, the journey was continued to Nauvoo."

Chip, That was a great piece of history of my granmother
Isabel's family. I did the Evans side of my Dad's family and
I am trying to do the Wardrop's side. I only had bits of information, but that ship's report was excellent. I knew my father was born in John Wardrop's house at 188c street in Salt Lake City, as well as his brother Paul and sister Frances. I have a picture house . I also knew he came from Scotland, and went to Navoo, but I didn't know of New Orleans arrival site. I also knew of he working to build the temple at Navoo. But thats about it. Any more information would be an added bonus. If you got any pictures of the family
would be nice, but that might be asking alot.

thanks,

James

Surnames: Wardrop, Parratt
I'm glad you were able to use that info. Mary Belle Wardrop(James McIntosh's daughter) was married to Delbert Parratt in 1899. Delbert is my Wife's great grandfather. He was an educator living in Murray. He was head of the Utah Genealogical Society in the 1930's and also chaired the State Fair. Mary Belle died in the Belevedere Apts(South SAlt Lake) in 1958. Delbert and Mary Belle owned a home on 3rd East and about 29th south. It was as far south as the trolley ran and in front of their home was aturn around for the trolley. I may be off on the 29th south. Between the houses was a vacant lot where Mary Belle's son's(four) built a railroad tie swimming pool that was an ice skating rink in the winter. They charged a penny for the use of it. Mary Belle would call the in to eat and the boy's would wear their skates into the house wrapped in burlap. Mary Belle died from burns she got when she was burning leaves in the fall. Her dress caught fire. Their sons are now all deceased(Lyman, Easton, Spencer, and Louis) with Easton dieing two years ago in Holiday and Louis dieng in Florida a few month' earlier.Easton was a superintendent of Murray schools and a state legislater. Easton's son Robert lives in Layton at this time.He may have some pics.I'll stay in touch, chip

Thanks again for some added information on John and James
Wardrop. Mary was born in 1876 and Isabel my granmother was born in 1881, were first cousins. James Wardrop's sister
Isabella was born in Navoo, Illinois in 1846.She married Josiah Rogerson in 1881 in Salt Lake City, who was to become his second wife at this time . Rogerson came to Utah from Navoo with the Martin Handcart co. and later wrote a history of this company's very tough times travelling west to Salt Lake.

My granmother Isabel was born in 1882 in Salt Lake City
and she was born at John Wardrop's house on 188 c St., as was my father. She married Sterling Evans, who worked for the Salt Lake Health health dept for many years. Isabel died in 1933 in Salt Lake City, and my Dad came out to California
in 1935. My dad's name was Sterling D. Evans.

Please send me any more information you can, since I am
trying to assemble more history on The Wardrop family
of Salt Lake City. It would be good if there was any information on the trip to Salt Lake. I will keep in touch.
Chip- My email is wardrop@earthlink.net

Surnames: Wardrop, Woolley, Parratt
I wanted to clarify that the woman who died as a result of her skirt catching fire while burning leaves was not Mary Belle Wardrop Parratt, but her mother, Amelia Woolley Wardrop. See Amelia's death record for verification.
