Abstract:

Photocopy of a microfilm reproduction of a typed manuscript. The item is a biography of Thomas Durham. He lived in England, joined the Mormon Church in 1850, married Mary Morton in 1852, and migrated to Utah in 1856 with the Martin handcart company. He soon went to Parowan, Utah, where he led the local choir for 62 years. He married a second wife, Mary Mitchell, in 1860 and took a thid wife, Carole Mortensen, in 1867. Durham made a living as a furniture maker. Alfred M. Durham describes his family life when he was growing up. He writes that the three wives lived in the same house, that life was happy, and that everyone seemed to get along well. Thomas Durham took the Parowan choir to Salt Lake City, Utah, where it sang for the General Conference of the Mormon Church and also sang for General William T. Sherman in 1870. Thomas Durham had to hide from federal marshals to avoid arrest for polygamy, and he had a number of dreams about the Book of Mormon late in his life.
