Notes


Abiah FRANKLIN

Different sources point to two general different years and places for her death: 1841 in Nauvoo or 1897 in Escalante, Utah.
However, a Biah Porter is present in the 1850 Census with a Jerrie or Jerric Porter. This is likely to be the same Abiah Franklin Porter, therefore it is more likely that she did not die in Nauvoo, but in Utah. Also, in a history of Nathan Staker (brother of Jared Porter's second wife), mentions that Porter married Cornelia Staker "in polygamy," indicating that he was currently married (and it appears it would have been Abiah Franklin at that point).


Nathaniel STAKER

It is possible that the Staker family lived in Pike County, Illinois with the years 1839-1845. This may affect his birth place. See The Mormon Drapers by Delbert M. Draper (published by Delbert M. Draper, Salt Lake, UT, 1958) pp. 44, 67, 71; also History of Nathan Staker by William Marchant Staker (found on the internet in imperfect form at:

Nathan Richmond STAKER

There is a conflict between death date sources, but 18 May 1850 was changed to 18 March 1850 was chosen because of the mortality index.

It is possible that the Staker family lived in Pike County, Illinois with the years 1839-1845. This may affect his birth place. See The Mormon Drapers by Delbert M. Draper (published by Delbert M.

Aaron STAKER

Death date/location may need to be researched further.


Lydia Margaret STAKER

Furher research/sources needed for death and burial information.

Mary Ann STAKER

Death and Burial information may require further research.


Joseph Smith STAKER

Further research probably needed for death and burial.


John STAKER

While the 1870 Cenus has his birth year as approx. 1838, in comparison with other sources it seems to have been an error.


John Ebenezer STAKER

While in some sources his birthplace is listed as Utah, it is more likely that he was born in Iowa since he is listed in the Mormon Pioneer Overland Travel as a traveler.


Catherine Maria PARSONS

Used Utah Burial Database information for Catherine B. Staker even though middle initial and birth year are off because death date and place close to other sources and she is buried near William Henry Staker

However, further research is needed in determine actual death and burial dates, as well as in determining if she was born in 1832 or 1833
