About Harriet Maria Gardner

Harriet was born Feb. 21 1836, the daughter of William Albert Beebe and Louisa Newton in New York. Harriet came to Salt Lake City in Brigham Young's Company when a small girl. She often told about the trip and how she had scraped the mush kettle for President Young's supper. She traveled with the Widow Green and she experienced all the hardships of the other pioneers. As she grew to womanhood, she taught school in the homes of the Saints and helped raise the children of the communities where she lived.. Marriage to George Gardner Harriet was persuaded by her father, William Albert Beebe, to marry George Bryant Gardner, as a sure way to salvation. They were married Oct. 16th 1852. She was not happy about it in her young days but she stayed with it and lived a useful life. She was the mother of thirteen children.. Work as a midwife She was set apart as a midwife by Prophet Brigham Young and he told her she would have success as long as she trusted in her Heavenly Father and she surely did. She would tell me to pray for her every time she left to care for the sick. She went every time that she was sent for, no matter who or where, and God bless her, she never had a mother die under her hands. She delivered three children for me; Joseph was the 400th baby that she brought into the world. In her later years, she lived with us in the old home for three years, then went to Eureka, Utah, and lived with her son Will, for seven years, then returned to Woodruff, Arizona and lived with us for another two years. She died on the 11th of August 1913 in our home in Woodruff. She live a wonderful life, always ready to serve her fellowmen, always pleasant, with never a thought for herself..She passed away Aug. 11th, 1913 in Woodruff Az.
