About Stephen Hales, Jr.

Biographical Summary:

"...Per article which appeared in the "Church News", he was a skilled stonemason. Helped fend off persecution in Far West, Mo., accompanied the bodies of Joseph and Hyrum Smith to Nauvoo following their martyrdom, and carved the oxen in the baptismal font of the Nauvoo Temple. Made the trek from Iowa to SLC as part of the Garden Grove Company in 1851. It was reported that he danced at Brigham Youngs's home, and was involved in the building of the Salt Lake Temple. He was the sculptor of the "Hands of Fellowship" which depicts two masculine hands clasped in a handshake of brotherhood. The long shirtsleeve on the one hand, coupled with the robe on the other hand, denotes a friendship that extends across the veil. Identical carvings are positioned above the center windows on the east and west sides of the Salt Lake Temple. This is captured in a painting in the LDS Museum by his great great grandson, Ronald D. Hales entitled "Stephen Hales: Father, Stone Carver, Pioneer"...." SOURCE: http://www.myfamilysearch.net/getperson.php?personID=I1822&tree=2005217a
