    FATHER WOODBURY'S DEATH
    The Deceased was Well Known and a Pioneer of '47.
    In the death of Elder Thomas H. Woodbury, another pioneer has passed to the great beyond, and the community has lost one of its honored members, for he was beloved and respected by all who knew him. Father Woodbury has been a faithful worker and has lived to a good age, being in the seventy-seventh year of his age. He contracted a cold through getting wet on Thursday last, and was taken sick early Friday morning. The cold settled on his lungs, and he continued to grow worse. He has been in poor health for several years past, and owing to the debilitated condition of his system was unable to rally from the cold which settled upon him, and he passed peacefully away without a struggle, surrounded by family and friends.
    Elder Thomas H. Woodbury was the son of Jeremiah and Elizabeth Bartlett, and was born at New Salem, Franklin county, Mass. July 4, 1822. He embraced the Gospel in the year 1841, having been baptized in September of that year. He was married to Catherine R. Haskell on May 8, 1842, and together with his father's family moved to Nauvoo the same year, where he rented a farm from Joseph Smith. He passed through all the persecutions incident to life in Nauvoo in those days.
    He emigrated to Utah in 1847, arriving in Salt Lake valley Sept. 26, in A. O. Smoot's company, and Geo B. Wallace's fifty. He made the wagon he came in. On leaving the Old Fort he took up his residence on the south side of the block on which he resided at the time of his death.
    Elder Woodbury was chosen as second counselor to Bishop Wm. G. Perkins in 1852, and was ordained under the hands of Bishop Hunter and Bishop Perkins on Feb. 25 of that year. He held this position until 1861, when he was called to go to southern Utah, where he lived for about six years. After his return he labored as ward teacher, and on the 29th of August, 1873, was chosen as counselor to Bishop Wm. Thorn, which position he held until the time of his death.
    Father Woodbury has been connected with the Sunday school since its first organization, and has held a position in the superintendancy for a great many years. He was always faithful in the performance of his duty and was greatly beloved and respected by the Sunday school children, as well as all others with whom he associated.
    Thomas H. Woodbury was one of the first nurserymen in Utah, anf for many years conducted the Pioneer nursery. His special mission to southern Utah was to start a nursery, which mission he fulfilled, and he supplied that part of the country with trees. He was a member of the Horticultural society for a long time, and took an active part therein.
    Father Woodbury leaves a numerous posterity. Two sons and one daughter and twenty-seven grandchildren survive him. Two of his brothers are also living. William who resides in Chicago, and John S., whose home is in St. George, Utah. His sons are John H. Woodbury, of Granger, Salt Lake county, and Thomas H. Woodbury, Jr., of East Waterloo. His daughter is Mary C. Stay, of Mill Creek. His two wives and five chldren and nine grandchildren preceded him to the other world, and in his last hours he talked of those who had gone before to prepare a place for him.
    The funeral services will be held in the 7th ward meeting house on Thursday at 1 p.m. Friends who desire to view the remains may call at his late residence, No. 574 south, First West street, between the hours of 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. tomorrow.
