About Mandana Dalley

BIOGRAPHY OF MANDANA HILLMAN DALLEY by Mayhew H. Dalley Mandanna Hillman Dalley,daughter of Mayhew and Sarah King Hillman, was born December 3, 1829, at Spafford, Onondago County, New York. In her early childhood her parents joined the Latter-day Saints and removed to Nauvoo, Illinois. During the time of the mobbings in Nauvoo her father died and her mother was left a widow with four small children. She gained the main part of her education by attending night school. She had to work hard during the daytime to assist in the support of the family.Her teacher at night school was very polite and taught her and her companion, among others, how to curtsey. She and her companion wanted to put this instruction into practice; so one day they met a finely dressed lady and of course, curtsied after the manner taught her in school. This person, whom they thought to be a lady, turned on them and merely said, "SQUAT-GUTTS. This gave them quite a set-back. Her mother with her family was driven with the Saints from Nauvoo by the Mobs. Her mother and family settled for a short time at a place called Pisga; from there they moved to a place called Trading Point, Iowa. At this place, September 4,1846, she was married to William Dalley, a native of Leominster, Herefordshire, England, who joined the Latter-day Saints in his native land and came to America on account of his religion. She was baptised a member of the Latter-day Saints on December 3,1837. With her husband and small family of children, she moved Westward with the body of Saints who were seeking homes in the West and was among the early arrivals in the Salt Lake Valley, finally settling at Pleasant Grove, Utah County, Utah. Her husband being called by the authorities of the Church to satt1e Iron County, moved with his family to Cedar City and later moved to and built a home at the place now known as Johnsons Fort. About the year 1858, she made her last move with her husband and family and was among the first settlers of the Town of Summit, Iron County, Utah. During her late sickness she always expressed her willingness to depart this life. as she felt that: her work in this life was completed and she passed away peacefully on the morning of March 27, 1912. The funeral services were held in the new Summit tabernacle on the afternoon of March 29th, and she was followed to her final resting place in Summit Cemetery by a goodly number of relatives and friends. She was the Mother of a large family of children. 1 son and 3 daughters preceded her and seven sons and 1 daughter survived her. All of her surviving children except one a number of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren attended the funeral. All speakers at the funeral services spoke in the highest terms of praise of "Grandma Dalley" as a model mother, a faithful and devoted wife, a true Latter-day Saint and one who had paid especial attention to her home duties in the training and caring for her children. She passed through the many hardships incident to pioneer life and was always willing to lend a helping hand and give words of encouragement-to those in need and to all who became discouraged and disheartened on account of the many hardships and trials experienced by the early pioneers.
