Data for the N.E. area and for the period 1600-1800. Completely indexed in the Index.): 26 Dec 1935, 1308 Our Pioneer Heritage Volume 2 They Came Alone Zion-Their Goal A Tribute Eliza Chapman was born March 13, 1815, at Croydon, Cambridgeshire, England, the daughter of William Chapman and Mary Pentlon. On April 13, 1836 she married Samuel Gadd who was born in Whaddon, Cambridgeshire, England. Between the years of 1836 and 1854 they became the parents of nine children, the last being twins. Her husband joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints October 14, 1841, and on May 1, 1856 the family started for Utah to join the Saints in the valley of the mountains. When they arrived at Iowa City they joined the belated handcart company of Captain James G. Willie. Eliza Chapman Gadd was not a member of the Church before she left England. She came with her husband as a dutiful wife should when her husband decides to move on. During the month of October, when winter had descended upon this ill-fated company, Eliza lost her husband and three sons. Once she became snowblind and her eight year old daughter led her by the hand as she pulled the lowly cart mile after mile along the road. On November 16, 1856, just one week after their arrival in Salt Lake City Eliza Chapman was baptized. The family settled in Nephi and lived there for many years. She was set apart as a midwife and continued in this capacity until the end of her days. After staying two weeks to help a family where she had delivered a baby, the husband and father said to her: "Sister Gadd, I am sorry I haven't anything I can pay you for all you have done for us. I will try to pay you soon." Grandmother Gadd saw two eggs on the table and picking them up said, "That's all right Brother ... , I will take these eggs for my breakfast and we will call the bill paid." Bless her sweet memory. Eliza Chapman Gadd died in Nephi, Utah, January 24, 1892 at the age of 77 years.
