The early history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was filled with excitement, tragedy, remarkable growth, and miraculous dedication. Throughout his life, James Allred played a vital role in this history. He influenced events from the earliest period until the Church was established in Utah.
On January 12, 1784, in Randolph County, North Carolina, James Allred was born to Elizabeth Thrasher and William Allred.1 James Allred had a rich heritage. His ancestors came from Europe to courageously assist in the beginning of the new and challenging America. James’ great-great-great grandmother, Elizabeth Tills Aldridge alone, after the death of her husband, left her homeland in order to obtain freedom, one of the values she held dear.2 James’ ancestor passed to him the courage and the values that would become essential as he passed through the hardships of his life.
Presumably James spent his early years like any normal North Carolina farm boy of the era. Learning responsibility by helping his father from sunup to sundown doing the normal daily chores, James was taught the value of hard labor and the importance of accepting challenge.
On November 14, 1803, James Allred was married to Elizabeth Warren, who had been born in Spartanburg County, South Carolina on May 6, 1786.3 Elizabeth, like James, had been taught important values that would help her support and sustain her husband through the many trials that were to come.
During their early married life they made homes in North Carolina, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, and Missouri.4 Becoming accustomed to leaving home and friends would prove a great asset to the Allred family as they would be forced to move throughout their lives.
In Missouri James and his family lived at Salt River where a large branch of a newly organized and very controversial church was built up by George M. Hinkle and others; they called this the Salt River Branch. 5 his church was established on April 6, 1830 by Joseph Smith, who claimed to have received revelations from God and was considered a Prophet by those who joined the church.
Two years after the church that would eventually be called the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints had been organized, James and Elizabeth Allred and most of their family, including uncles, aunts, and cousins were baptized on September 10, 1832.7 Because the Church was called the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints the members of the Church were often referred to as Saints. James Allred was forty-eight years old at the time of his baptism. Most of his prime years had passed and yet James would dedicate the next forty-four years of his life to building up his new found religion and accomplish the greatest acts of his life.
From the establishment of the Church the members faced many persecutions. During the spring of 1832, in Missouri, persecutions became so great that some of the Saints were forced to move. The persecutions continued until November 1833 when most of the Saints left.8
In the spring of 1834 in Kirtland, Ohio, the Prophet Joseph Smith organized a group of two hundred volunteers to march to the aid of members of the Church that remained in Missouri; this organization became known as Zion’s Camp.9 On June 8, 1834, the Prophet Joseph Smith’s camp arrived in Salt River at James Allred’s home, where Joseph’s camp was joined by a group established by his brother Hyrum. Combined, they involved two hundred and five men, who were on their journey to the upper part of Missouri in order to re-establish the Saints in Jackson County. James Allred and nine of his relatives were called by the Prophet to be members of Zion’s Camp.10 Only the most worthy men were chosen to attend Zion’s Camp of which eventually the leaders of the Church would be chosen.
The men (of Zion’s Camp) were heavily armed and well provisioned. They were organized into companies of tens, fifties, and hundreds, with officers over each. The men marched the entire one thousand miles, while the supplies were hauled in wagons . . . Word of their coming reached the old settlers of Jackson County long before their arrival, and armed bands were directed to meet and turn them back . . . On June 19th, while Zion’s Camp was settled for the night on a piece of elevated ground between Big and Little Fishing Rivers, the mobs, sent to intercept them, made an appearance. Sixty men from Ray County and a mob of seventy from Clay County were to be joined by some two hundred men from Jackson County, directly across the Missouri River. A sudden and terrific storm scattered the mobs and made it impossible for them to join forces. The next day the majority of them returned to their homes.11
The was considered as a blessing from the Lord by the brethren for if it would have been necessary to fight, the men were greatly out numbered and would have received considerable loss.
Thus ended the attempts to restore the Saints to their lands in Jackson County. Henceforth they directed their energies to building up new communities in the counties north of the Missouri River. (Although) Zion’s Camp had failed in its initial mission . . .it had nevertheless been of great value, and in the minds of its members was a glorious experience. The form of organization was later the pattern used in guiding the great Exodus to the Rocky Mountains. (The participants) received a splendid training for the leadership they were later to assume. From the members of this Camp was chosen the first Quorum of Twelve Apostles. The willingness of two hundred men to give their all, even to their life’s blood, to help establish Zion in her place, is a lasting monument to the faith and courage of the Saints.12
A statement made by George A. Smith, a prominent member of the Church and one of the youngest members of Zion’s Camp, confirms the fact that James Allred played an important role in this very pertinent event in church history. While being questioned by spies, George A. Smith stated that James Allred helped lead the rest of the brethren on their journey to Jackson County. Since Latter-day Saints considered everyone to be children of God, they often referred to each other as brother and sister.
In September 1835, James and Elizabeth took their eleven children and followed the Saints to Clay County, Missouri where they were well received.14 In the spring of 1837, having been appointed by the Prophet Joseph Smith, James and Elizabeth and their family left their new home and moved to Caldwell County where a group of Saints were gathered.15 Shortly after James’s family arrived, a temple site was dedicated in Caldwell County.16 This was important to them because the Latter-day Saint people believe that ordinances performed in the temples, referred to in the Old Testament are necessary, so at every opportunity temples are built in order that these ordinances can be performed. The temple was never completed, because in the fall of 1838 persecutions began again.17 There were a total of fifteen thousand Mormons living in the northern part of Missouri. The other citizens of Missouri fearing the political, physical, and religious power of such a large group were very alarmed. Those who were not members of the Latter-day Saint Church felt the Latter-day Saint people in a few years might conceivably dominate the state. This fear brought about many persecutions. The Latter-day Saints remembering previous persecutions and in an effort to protect themselves, formed a County militia of which James Allred was a member;18 this militia was required to fight for the lives of the Latter-day Saints many times. James Allred must have been a very courageous man to have been a part of the militia. In 1838 large mobs began to move towards Caldwell County.
(At this time) a distorted report reached Governor Lilburn W. Boggs. Without investigation he issued an order to the Commanding Officer, General Clark, and others, sometimes referred to as the ‘Extermination Order,’ for in it he said: “Your orders are therefore to hasten your operations with all possible speed. The Mormons must be treated as enemies, and must be exterminated or driven from the state if necessary for the public peace -- their outrages are beyond all descriptions.” All hope of the Saints for peace in the state of Missouri was at an end.19
The lives of the Latter-day Saints were to be spared only if they agreed to do the following:
- “To give up their leaders to be tried and punished.”
- “To make an appropriation of their property, all who had taken up arms, to the payment of their debts, and indemnity for damage done by them.”
- “That the balance of Mormons should leave the state, and be protected out by the militia, but to be permitted to remain under protection until further orders were received from the commander-in-chief.:
- “To give up arms of every description to be receipted for.”20
In the spring of 1839, the Latter-day Saints left Missouri and moved to Illinois. James Allred and his family settled in Pittsfield, Pike County, Illinois. Later in the fall of 1839, James and his family moved to Commerce, better known as Nauvoo.21 Here a large number of the Saints worked diligently to build a beautiful city. In Nauvoo James became a close associate of the Prophet Joseph Smith and the apostles, or highest leaders of the Church.22
The land upon which Nauvoo was built was a mosquito invested swamp.23 Many people contracted malaria, including James Allred’s son Martin Allred and his wife died of the fever. James being a generous and devoted grandfather offered to take Martin’s eight children into his home.24 These eight children plus his own twelve made twenty children that James raised and educated in the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. He instilled in each of these children a testimony of God and a love of the gospel that lasted throughout their lives. James’ faithfulness to the gospel and membership in the Church was the cause of much of his personal persecutions. James faced many trials that called forth his undying courage and dedication to the Church.
On Wednesday, July 7, 1840, James Allred and Noah Rogers were forcibly taken from Hancock County, Illinois and arrested while peaceably pursuing their own lawful business. Missourians kidnaped and carried James and Noah from Hancock County into Missouri without having established a claim for such procedures. They were taken to Tully Missouri confined in a house and later taken into a near by woods. James was stripped of every particle of clothing and was bound to a tree. The men then told James that they would whip him. The men took Rogers beyond the place where James was bound. They had a rope around Rogers neck. James heard a great number of blows, which he then supposed, and afterwards learned were inflected upon Rogers. Allred heard him call out several times in agony. After they whipped Rogers, they unbound James without whipping him. Then Rogers and Allred were taken back and placed in the house. Rogers and Allred was then held there until July 12, 1840, where they were found innocent of any wrong doing and released.25
During the year following James’ tragic experience with the Missourians, there was a meeting held on February 4, in the office of Joseph Smith. Joseph Smith was elected Lieutenant-general. After being duly sworn into office, he appointed James Allred and eleven other men to be his body-guards, and assistant aids-de-camp.26 Joseph Smith chose James Allred to be his personal body-guard because James had proven by his previous dedication and worthiness that he had a very strong testimony of the work of the Church. He had been willing to lay down his life for the Church as he had shown several times in the past; therefore, Joseph had a great deal of respect for and trust in James Allred.
Throughout his life James associated with the leaders and outstanding people of the Church and he personally witnessed many of the Church’s great historical events. One of the greatest accomplishments of the Latter-day Saints was the building of the temple in Nauvoo. On April 6, 1841, Joseph Smith, Sidney Rigdon, and a score of the Church leaders gathered to lay the cornerstones for the temple.27 James offered many unselfish hours of labor in the building of the Nauvoo Temple.28
On April 8, 1841, Joseph Smith appointed James Allred to the office of High Councilor,29 which is a very important calling in the leadership of the Church. James was also ordained a High Priest,30 the highest calling in the Priesthood which is the same Priesthood held by Peter, James, and John and other apostles and prophets in the Old and New Testaments. James spent much time and effort in worthily fulfilling the duties of his important callings. He was required to make many difficult and significant decisions.
James’ wife Elizabeth was closely associated with many of the prominent members of the Church and was also involved with many important events of the Church. While the Allred family was living in Nauvoo the Prophet Joseph Smith came to Elizabeth, who was a seamstress by trade, and told her that he had seen the angel Moroni, a resurrected prophet whose story is told in a book translated from ancient gold plates by Joseph Smith called the Book of Mormon. The angel was wearing a special type of garment worn to do sacred ordinance work in the temple.
Joseph asked Elizabeth to assist him in cutting out the garment. They spread unbleached muslin on the table and he told her how to cut it. She had to cut the third pair, however, before he said it was satisfactory. She told the Prophet that there would be sufficient cloth from the knee to ankle to make a pair of sleeves, but he told her he wanted as few seams as possible and that there would be sufficient whole cloth to cut the sleeves without piecing. The first garments were made of unbleached muslin and bound with turkey red and were without collars. Later, the Prophet Joseph Smith decided he would rather have them bound with white. Sister Emma Smith, the Prophet’s wife, proposed that they have a collar as she thought they would look more finished, but at first did not have the collars on them After Emma Smith had made the collars, which were not visible from the outside, Eliza R. Snow introduced a wider collar of finer material to be worn on the outside of the dress. The garment was to reach the ankle and the sleeve to the wrist.31
In the fall of 1842 the Saints were being persecuted, especially the heads of the Church. Elizabeth also assisted the Prophet and his brother Hyrum as they were being hunted and persecuted by the mobs. She often put potatoes in the coals of the fireplace at night and would leave bread and butter and fresh butter milk, which the Prophet was fond of, on the table of her home so they could come during the night and eat it. The persecutions of the Saints and of the Prophet Joseph Smith intensified to the point that the persecutors wanted to take Joseph’s life.32
In June 1844, Joseph Smith, his brother Hyrum, John Taylor and Willard Richards were taken to the Carthage Jail in Hancock County, Illinois, while charged falsely with numerous crimes.33 At the jail Joseph Smith gave his sword to James Allred and said, “Take this -- you may need it to defend yourself.” James treasured the sword and carried it with him to Utah.”34
Later in that same month Joseph and Hyrum Smith were murdered in the Carthage Jail Joseph Smith had prophesied that Willard Richards would not be harmed, and, true to prophecy, he escaped without a scratch. John Taylor was wounded with four bullets.35 His condition was very serious, and wanting to make the long journey back to Nauvoo as comfortable as possible, James who was to care for Taylor put a sleigh behind his wagon. By going through the fields which were mostly swamps the journey covered eighteen miles to the town of Nauvoo.36 John Taylor did recover and eventually became the President of the Church. After the Prophet’s death, the Saints tried to collect more money for the building of the Nauvoo Temple. James Allred was put in charge of this money.37 James must have been a very trustworthy individual to have had this responsibility.
After a great deal of persecution the Latter-day Saints were again forced to leave their homes. In the winter of 1845-46 the leaders of the High Council agreed that the members of the Church should leave Illinois. The Church leaders told the Mormons to sell their houses and lands so that they would be ready to depart as soon as possible.38 Brigham Young, the new Prophet that followed Joseph Smith, said to James Allred and other members of the Church that “When Zion’s Camp went to Missouri it was considered a great move, but that was nothing compared to this move and he that will continue faithful through this campaign shall always rejoice and shall be crowned with laurels of victory.”39 To accomplish this different branches were organized into working companies to make wagons, carts or other modes of transportation for a move. Much preparation was needed for such an extensive journey, therefore; twenty-five men were chosen by the general leadership to be captains of one hundred families and see that they were prepared for a journey across the Rocky Mountains. James Allred was appointed distributing commissary, his duties were to make a righteous distribution of grain provisions, and such articles as should be furnished for the use of the camp.40
On February 7, 1846, James and Elizabeth and two of their sons crossed the Mississippi River on their way west with the heads of the Church; however, James was selected to take care of the families who were left behind.41 Five months later in July 1846, James Allred was selected as one of the twelve men to preside over the Saints at Council Bluff, Iowa, in all their spiritual and temporal dealings.42 James was later appointed President of the High Council at Council Bluff, Pottawatomie County, Iowa.43
Many of the Saints moved to Pottawatomie County and forty branches of the Church were established there. One branch was named after James Allred. James presided over the Allred Branch and served in many church and community leadership positions.44
In the spring of 1851 James, an aging man of sixty-seven years, and Elizabeth, weary from having reared twenty children, started the long and rugged journey west to the Rocky Mountains. Crossing the plains was a trial that led many younger and stronger to their deaths, but after endless miles of unbearable travel, James and Elizabeth arrived in the Salt Lake Valley on October of 1851.45
Shortly after their arrival in Salt Lake in 1852 Brigham Young advised James to select a place for a settlement where he could locate with his numerous posterity and preside over them. He and his sons, James Tillman Stanford, William Hackley, Andrew Jackson, Reuben Warren, Isaac, and Franklin Lafayette, journeyed as directed by Brigham Young into Central Utah and began a settlement. After doing some exploring they decided to settle along a creek flowing from the mountains to the east of them. They called the creek Canal Creek. This was March 22, 1852. It was only natural that other home seekers, journeying through the valley, should call the town, ‘The Allred Settlement’ . . . The man who had been entrusted with the responsibility of making a ‘go’ of Spring City, James Allred, was in every way suited for the work given him. He had served as a bodyguard of the Prophet Joseph Smith. His one son, James Tillman Stanford had served a member of the Mormon Battalion. This son, called by the Indians, ‘Showritz,’ and another son, Andrew Jackson Allred, called, ‘Shungitz,’ and James Allred served as Indian interpreters.46
Whenever Brigham Young and his company or other important leaders of the Church visited this area they stayed at the Allred’s home.47 Meetings were also held principally in James’ log cabin and about a dozen families spent the winter of 1852-53 in the settlement. The Allred Settlement was advised to gather together in a fort so they moved some of their cabins closer together. Under order of Gay Young they were instructed to move their cattle out of the valley into a place of safety, because of problems with the Indians, but refused to do so, believing that they were able to take care of themselves. A few days after, on July 29, 1853, two hundred Indians with Chief Walker as their leader made an attack. The Indians drove off two hundred head of cattle and seventy horses. The fifteen men made the best attempt they could on foot to defend their stock; however, none of the animals were recovered.48 “It was deemed advisable, for safety reasons, to move to Manti. This move was begun July 31, 1853 and completed December 19, 1853. A few men stayed until the later date to try to save some of their crops.” 49
On October 1853 while James was attending Conference in Salt Lake City he learned of an arrival of the first large company of Scandinavian immigrants who had arrived at Salt Lake. They were influenced to settle in Sanpete Valley, and a large number of them responded to and assisted James Allred in the reestablishment of Canal Creek.50
James was called to develop many areas in the Sanpete Valley. In February 1854, in company with fifty families, James commenced to build a fort on Cottonwood, now called Ephraim. The fort was built of stone, and was ten feet high.51 James presided over Fort Ephraim until the spring of 1859 when he moved back to Canal Creek.52
James, an elderly man of eighty, was active and alert in everything and enjoyed the last years of his life. In 1864 the members of Zion’s Camp met in the social hall. This was truly an interesting occasion, veterans meeting together after a period of thirty years. This ceremony consisted of dancing, eating a big dinner, and speeches from several members of the company.53
James had led a remarkable life and had been an outstanding member of the Church. President Brigham Young in a tribute to James’ life said this:
Father James Allred, a very Patriarch, whose erect form gave no indication of his age. He was born January 22, 1784, in Randolph County, North Carolina. His wife, Elizabeth Warren, was born May 6, 1786, in South Carolina. They emigrated from Tennessee to Missouri in 1830. They were driven from Missouri with the Saints and fled into Illinois, and moved west with their co-religionists when they left that State. This aged couple, one eighty-two, the other eighty-four years of age, have shared in the persecutions of the people of God; but they are here today in the midst of their numerous descendants remarkably hale and active for persons of their age. To look at them no one would suspect that they were so advanced in years.54
On January 10, 1876, lacking twelve days of being ninety-two years old James Allred passed away.55 His wife, Elizabeth, was near ninety, she had been blind for six years, but other than this was strong and in good health at the time of his death.56
The funeral service, the largest that had ever taken place in Spring City, was held on June (sic) 11, 1876; thirty-nine wagons and sleighs loaded with people followed James to his final resting place. President Orson Hyde preached James’ funeral service. He reviewed the main events that had taken place in James’s life.57
James had raised twelve children of his own and eight orphan children. He and his wife had been married seventy-three years. He was survived by a posterity of four hundred and forty-seven souls, viz., twelve children, one hundred and four grandchildren, three hundred and two great-great grandchildren, and twenty nine great-great-great grandchildren.58
Aside from the many personal accomplishments and dedication of James Allred he left behind an immense posterity in which he had instilled all the worthy values he himself had treasured. James, by living the teachings of the Church to the best of his ability had set an example that would be carried through many generations of faithful church members. “Mormonism was James Allred’s whole life.”59 He truly exemplified a loving and charitable person. He had accepted and magnified every calling that he was given. He had helped widows, orphans, and anyone in need.60 James would long be remembered as a worthy, dedicated, humble, and enduring leader of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
