About Amelda Sophia (Roundy)

Biographical Summary:

"...Almeda Sophia Roundy Parker (1829-1912). She is a daughter of Shadrach Roundy (1789-1872) and Betsey (Quimby) Roundy (1795-1880) and she married John Davis Parker (1799-1891) on Feb 3 1846 in Nauvoo, Illinois. Her sister Samantha Roundy (1824-1906) also married John Parker on the same date.

Sophia had ten children. Prior to settling in Kanarra, Utah, they endured a terrible winter at Upper Kanab. Here Sophia buried a son and daughter who died of scarlet fever. After moving to Kanarra, she buried a son nineteen years of age, who died of typhoid fever, and in another year another daughter, fifteen years of age, passed on, thus their home was sanctified by the sorrow of a mother's heart. Sophia was of a mild, loving disposition; a true mother, a devout Latter Day Saint and a trusted and conscientious wife. Her husband and sister (Samantha died at the age of 82) preceded her in death by a number of years. She was an alert story-teller of pioneer days. Sophia died at the age of eighty-four years and is buried in Kanarra, Utah. ***the Roundy family in America - p.303
