About Samuel Badham

Find a Grave

Birth: Jul. 31, 1815 Hereford, England

Death: May 20, 1868 Henderson Mills County Iowa, USA

Son of John Badham & Frances Wood

Married Mary Bishop, 10 Oct 1838, Stanford Bishop, Herefordshire, England

Samuel BADHAM, One of the pioneers of the state (of Iowa), one of the first settlers of Mills county, was born in Herefordshire, England in 1815. He married Mary Bishop before leaving England to try his fortune across the ocean. After a long and tiresome trip in a sailing vessel the little English family reached the promised land (1842-43), and soon located in Hancock county, Illinois. Here they remained for three years, when removal was made into the wilds of Iowa, the home selected being at Trader's Point, on a stream of water. The only neighbor in the section was a man by the name of Watson, who had located in Pottawattamie county. Privations were expected and bravely endured; Later when Mr. Samuel Badham died, May 20, 1868, his wild prairie farm had become a valuable piece of property, worth twenty-five dollars an acre, and he also possessed a thousand dollars' worth of other property. All this had been accumulated by the time he was fifty three years old, giving one a sure basis upon which to estimate his character. He was energetic, persevering and laborious; was a man of judgment, having been long in the offices of school and township, and a veteran of the Mexican war, his wife receiving a pension for the same, he having served fifteen (sic 12) months.

"Samuel Badham enlisted as a private in Company D of the U.S. Mormon Battalion 16 July 1846 near Council Bluffs, Iowa. He was on detached service 10 Nov 1846 with LT Willis' detachment that traveled back through Santa Fe to winter in Pueblo, Colorado. As such he would have been in the group of Battalion members to enter the Salt Lake Valley 29 July 1847. A month later some members of the Battalion traveled back to Winter Quarters to re-unite with their families."

Mr. Badham voted the Republican ticket and took a vital interest in the affairs of the nation. In religious life he was a member The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Before leaving Illinois his wife died and about 1845 he married Mary Richards, a native of Highland county, Ohio, and they had a number of children, viz: Milvern, an infant; Frances, who became the wife of William Gaylord and died at Shenandoah, Iowa, leaving two children; Amazon Harrison; Violet, who became the wife of William James and died at Pleasant Hill, Missouri, January, 1877, leaving three children: Juan, who died at the age of two years; and Mary, who married Charles Wilson and died in western Nebraska, leaving two children. The mother of these children died April 2, 1898, at the age of seventy-six, lamented by all with whom she had been associated.
