About John Threlkeld

John Threlkeld, sixth son and youngest of eight children of Isaac and Margaret Threlkeld of Carlisle, Cumberland, England, was born 4 March 1818 at Carlisle, Cumberland, England, and christened on 8 March at St. Mary, Carlisle, Cumberland, England. In 1840, at the age of 26, he married Elizabeth Barker (1810 - 1870), daughter of John Barker and Margaret Freeland, in 1840 at Carlisle, England.

It is unknown when the Threlkeld family first encountered the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, except to note that John's wife, Elizabeth, was baptized in 1841. Although John was not baptized until 26 years later, he must have at least been friendly towards the church, as in 1849 they named their newborn son "Joseph Smith Threlkeld" in honor of LDS prophet Joseph Smith.

Elizabeth Barker Threlkeld's mother, brother and sister immigrated to Utah in 1856, and Elizabeth and John's family, including 10-month-old Joseph, traveled to the United States aboard the George Washington in 1857. At their port of entry, Boston, John stated his intention to become a United States citizen, but by the next England Census (1861), most of the family had returned to Carlisle, England. The exceptions are the two oldest daughters, Margaret and Mary Jane, both of whom are recorded as having traveled to Utah and married. John Carlisle is listed in Pioneers and Prominent Men of Utah by Essholm, but no record can be found of any of his family traveling there, except for Margaret and Mary Jane. Church records show that he was baptized on 28 March 1867 as an LDS member. Elizabeth died in 1870 in Carlisle. By the 1871 England census, the only family member still living with John was John Jr., who immigrated to Utah following his father's death in November 1877.
