During the summer of 2005 my wife Jackie and I had the opportunity to go to Bath Maine to visit with her sister and her husband. We had planned the trip to include time to drive to Prince Edward Island, Canada with Jackie’s sister Joey and her husband Russ. Upon arriving on Prince Edward Island we found a place to stay in Charlottetown and prepared to start the next morning to find a family graveyard called Brooklawn Cemetery and other places of interest in Belle River Township. Russ’ working day for the past 40 years had started at 4:30 AM so when we talked about getting on the road early I wasn’t to sure what that meant. We talked him into sleeping in a little and at 6:30 AM we were checked out, had breakfast and were on the road. Prince Edward Island is about 170 miles long and as much as 30 miles wide. We were not certain where Belle River was but didn’t think it could be too hard to find. After driving through the woods and fields for about 2 hours we were thoroughly lost so we made a stop at a little country store with a gas pump out front to get directions to Belle River. I went into the store and asked the lady if she knew where Belle River was. She told me that I was right in the center of downtown. She didn’t know where the cemetery was that we were looking for but told me that “The old guy across the road has lived here forever, he might know.” We got in the car and drove over to the driveway of the house and into the yard. We noticed on the mailbox at the end of the driveway the name on the box was Compton and the big building at the back of the yard read “Compton Boat Building”. Now Compton is a family name so this was encouraging. Even though it was only 8:30 in the morning the kitchen door was open with just the screen door shut. I knocked on the door and a spry little old lady came to the door. I told her what I was looking for directions to the Brooklawn Cemetery, she invited me in and called for her husband, Russell. Russell came in and we sat down at the kitchen table to talk. I told him I was looking for information on Philip Sanders and asked him if he knew where the Brooklawn Cemetery was located. He said, “Yes I know where that is I have a lot of family buried in that cemetery.” He then said to his wife, “Go get my book.” She went and retrieved a big loose leaf binder full of genealogy. I was pretty excited by this time. We looked through the pedigree charts and our lines ran together to a common Compton grandfather, William Compton. Russell asked me who I was looking for in the cemetery. I told him I was looking for Philip Sanders. Russell said, “Well, Philip Sanders house is the house next door.” He then said to his wife, “Go get my picture.” She dutifully went into another room and retrieved a framed collage of photographs. The whole thing was about 3 feet wide and about 10 inches tall. It showed the house next door being moved up the hill being pulled on skids by horses in 1908. This house was a large 2 story frame home. About this time the man who lived next door came by to check on Russell and his wife as they were 92 years old. When Russell told him who I was and what I was looking for he invited us to come over and go through the house when we were through with Russell. He told us that the house was in its original condition inside. Russell also had a bound book of Compton genealogy that we looked through. It was full of names and information that I thought would be very useful. I asked if he knew if the book was still in print. He said, “I don’t know lets call Cousin Tilly and see.” We called Tillie (her full name is Tilly Compton MacLeod), and she said she had a copy we could buy and would be home. Russell gave us directions to the cemetery and Cousin Tilly’s house. We took some pictures with Russell and we were off. We stopped at the Brooklawn Cemetery and I went in to see the caretaker. He showed me a plat of the Cemetery with the names of the people in the various plots. I asked if I could get a copy of the plat. He said, “I have 2 and only need one, take this one with you.” We went out in the cemetery grounds and there were all the family names in that part of my genealogy. This plot only contained Compton, Sanders and those who had married into the family. We went on to Cousin Tilly’s house and met with here and her husband, Harold MacLeod. As we talked with them Jackie asked Harold why he was so interested in genealogy. He said, “I don’t know, ever since I was about 12 years old I have been doing genealogy as a hobby. I don’t know what drives me to do it. I have published 4 books on family lines.” We had an amazing experience. When we left Cousin Tilly’s house it was about 11:30 AM. This entire experience only took about 3 hours. The Spirit of Elijah is an amazing thing. You can also feel of that spirit when you choose to seek after your ancestors.<br>

''The Saints living in Nauvoo had an opportunity to receive their own endowments in the Nauvoo Temple which strengthened not only their testimonies but gave them the faith and courage they needed to face the trials of their journey to the Salt Lake Valley.&nbsp; Along the "Trail of Hope" (Parley Street) in Nauvoo where the wagons lined up as they began their journey across the Mississippi River are plaques on which are engraved some of their feelngs about their exodus.&nbsp; Some of those statements follow:''
 +
 
 +
''"How well I remember what a hard time (father) had breaking in the animals to draw the wagon.&nbsp; There were six cows and two oxen.&nbsp; The oxen were well broken and quite sedate.&nbsp; But the cows were wild and unruly...while Father was breaking the cattle, Mother was praying...many nights when we were in bed asleep...she would go out into the orchard...and there pour out her soul in prayer, asking the Lord to open the way for us to go with the Saints."&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Margaret Judd Clawson''
 +
 
 +
''"The fall of 1845 found Nauvoo, as it were, one vast mechanic shop, as nearly every family was engaged in making wagons.&nbsp; Our parlor was used as a paint shop in which to paint wagons."&nbsp; Bathsheba W. Smith''
 +
 
 +
''"We hurried to pack some food, cooking utensils, clothing and bedding, which was afterward unpacked and strewn over the ground by the mob as they searched for fire-arms.&nbsp; Mother had some bread already in the kettles to bake.&nbsp; Of course she did not have time to bake so she hung it on the reach of our wagon and cooked it after we crossed the Mississippi River."&nbsp; Mary Field Garner'' "
 +
 
 +
...here we all halted and took a farewell view of our delightful city...We also beheld the magnificent temple rearing its lofty tower toward the heavens...My heart did swell within me."&nbsp; ''Newell Knight''
 +
 
 +
"We had nothing to sweeten anything until the Lord sent honey dew, which we gathered from bushes until we get all the sweets we wanted.&nbsp; I also boiled maple juice and got cakes of maple sugar."&nbsp; ''Jane Johnston''
 +
 
 +
"Early in February, multitudes of the people commenced to cross the Mississippi, and from their encampments in the forest of Iowa.&nbsp; In regard to the terrible sufferings that followed, the terrible snow storms and rains that continued from February until May, causing such floods and mire distress and suffering and consequent sickness, as perhaps has never before been known to the lot of man."&nbsp; ''Erastus Snow''
  
George Sanders

We too, in these troubled times, can draw strength, faith and courage from the temple.<br>

Family History Moments

The Saints living in Nauvoo had an opportunity to receive their own endowments in the Nauvoo Temple which strengthened not only their testimonies but gave them the faith and courage they needed to face the trials of their journey to the Salt Lake Valley.  Along the "Trail of Hope" (Parley Street) in Nauvoo where the wagons lined up as they began their journey across the Mississippi River are plaques on which are engraved some of their feelngs about their exodus.  Some of those statements follow:

"How well I remember what a hard time (father) had breaking in the animals to draw the wagon.  There were six cows and two oxen.  The oxen were well broken and quite sedate.  But the cows were wild and unruly...while Father was breaking the cattle, Mother was praying...many nights when we were in bed asleep...she would go out into the orchard...and there pour out her soul in prayer, asking the Lord to open the way for us to go with the Saints."    Margaret Judd Clawson

"The fall of 1845 found Nauvoo, as it were, one vast mechanic shop, as nearly every family was engaged in making wagons.  Our parlor was used as a paint shop in which to paint wagons."  Bathsheba W. Smith

"We hurried to pack some food, cooking utensils, clothing and bedding, which was afterward unpacked and strewn over the ground by the mob as they searched for fire-arms.  Mother had some bread already in the kettles to bake.  Of course she did not have time to bake so she hung it on the reach of our wagon and cooked it after we crossed the Mississippi River."  Mary Field Garner "

...here we all halted and took a farewell view of our delightful city...We also beheld the magnificent temple rearing its lofty tower toward the heavens...My heart did swell within me."  Newell Knight

"We had nothing to sweeten anything until the Lord sent honey dew, which we gathered from bushes until we get all the sweets we wanted.  I also boiled maple juice and got cakes of maple sugar."  Jane Johnston

"Early in February, multitudes of the people commenced to cross the Mississippi, and from their encampments in the forest of Iowa.  In regard to the terrible sufferings that followed, the terrible snow storms and rains that continued from February until May, causing such floods and mire distress and suffering and consequent sickness, as perhaps has never before been known to the lot of man."  Erastus Snow

We too, in these troubled times, can draw strength, faith and courage from the temple.
