JAMES ABBOTT LEMMON 1815-1882

James Abbot Lemmon was born in Gallatin, Tennessee, March 12, 1815. He was the son of John Lemmon, of which George A. Smith said, "John Lemmon was driven from his home for the gospel six different times. The last time he caught a severe cold which caused his death. " He concludes emphatically, "He died a martyr to the cause! " After the death of the father, the Lemmon family moved to Missouri and to Illinois where they suffered persecution and mob violence during the early days of the Church. Mother Lemmon stayed with the children and brought them to Utah during the great migration west.

While living with his parents in Tennessee James Abbott Lemmon became interested in Mariah Louisa Patton from a family very prominent in the Mormon church. David W. Patton, and uncle, was and an apostle at the time. (He was killed at the battle of Crocked River) James, while engaged to Lousia, was investigating the Church. He refused to be baptized until after their marriage, saying, "I shall not cause it to be said that I joined the Church to be able to marry Louisa."

During the time of their engagement, James, while chopping timber, accidentally cut his knee, but after a brief confinement was soon able to be about his work. One day after this he asked Louisa to go for a horseback ride with him, which she willingly did. During the time of their ride together the wound, being weak burst open allowing all the joint fluid to escape, leaving his leg rigid for the rest of his life. He felt he would be disabled so offered to release Louisa from their engagement. She responded to his offer by saying, "As long as the heart is left, that is all I ask " Soon after they were married and James was baptized into the Church. They lived in Gallatin for a while, but after having a few children moved to Nauvoo Illinois in 1843.

The family suffered many hardships for their religions sake but endured as did so many others. Records indicate James was a member of the 47th quorum of Elders in Nauvoo endowed in the Nauvoo temple, January 2, 1846 and was later ordained a seventy May 17, 1857, and became one of the presidents of the forty?seventh Quorum of Seventies. One of his assignments as a member of the Elders quorum in Nauvoo was to take his regular turn as a body guard to the Prophet Joseph Smith with whom he had frequent association. He spoke in later years of viewing the martyred bodies of the Prophet and his brother Hyrum. He often bore testimony of the divine mission of Joseph Smith.

The family traveled west with the saints about 1850 and settled in Provo initially. They later moved to Fort Ephraim and then went south to help settle "Dixie". They developed a plot of land and called it Northup Ranch in Kane County, situated seven miles southwest of what was one day to be called Zion's National Park. They lived here for a few years when Lousia died leaving James with four children and an adopted Indian boy.

The Lemmon family were well acquainted with the Ole Nielsen family that had migrated from Denmark, and father James became engaged to their daughter, Olavia. They were married March 26, 1866. The marriage produced seven daughters.

James Abbott Lemmon became ill and died June 30, 1882.

History of the Lemmon Family

(Retyped by Stephen Rawlins from Julia Rawlins family history files, May, 1997.)

James Lemmon was a messenger boy to George Washington during the American Revolution. He was the son to Robert Lemmon who was born in County Tyrene, Ireland in 1730. Robert Lemmon with brother John and James emigrated to America in 1750, settling in Baltimore, Maryland. They remained there for a number of years agitating the question in favor of America liberty and when wars came they were in the front lines and the heat of battle. Robert Lemmon and his brothers entered the army during the French and Indian War, and served under General Edward Braddock and his Aide de Camp, George Washington. They were in the Battle of Fort Duquesne on July 9th, 1755, on the occasion of defeat and mortal wounding of General Braddock. At the outbreak of the American Revolution the three brothers again entered the services of their country - this time as captains in the Maryland and Virginia lines. Captain James Lemmon was killed in the battle of Brandywine. Captain John Lemmon survived and upon the termination of hostilities moved with his family to Green County, Kentucky where he settled on and improved a fine farm upon the banks of the Green River -- known far and wide as "Lemmon's Bend." He reared a large family, the greater portion of whom subsequently became pioneers in the new states and territories. His great-grandson, Major Alexander C. Lemmon, settled in Dallas, Texas in 1869 and it is for him that Lemmon Avenue in Dallas is named. After serving in the French and Indian War, Robert Lemmon was married to Eleanor Davis -- born in Wales and of the Jefferson Davis lines. In 1786 they moved to Kentucky and settled at Elk Creek, in Shelby County, and he died there after 1800. James Lemmon, son of Robert, was born in 1765 near Hagerstown, Maryland. He served as a messenger boy during the American Revolution when a lad of twelve years -- it being safer for boys to carry the messages than men. He carried messages from the camp of General George Washington to that of Captain Robert Lemmon (his father) and others. He lived in Washington's camp in Valley Forge and affectionately called him "Uncle George." Toward the end of the war James entered the Continental Army as a private and served until the end of the war. In 1800 James Lemmon married Sarah Carr and lived in Bowling Green, Ky. It was during his residence here that he volunteered for military service in the War of 1812. After her death in 1815 he moved his family of children to Indiana where he married Amy Rawlins. About 1834 they were lured by free land into Illinois where they settled in Green County living neighbors to Roderick Rawlins. In 1844 Roderick Rawlins moved his entire family from Illinois to Texas and settled in Peters' Colony on a land-grant located partly on Ten Mile Creek in what is now known as the southern part of Dallas County. Needing some help in getting his large family to Texas, Roderick Rawlins brought along young Robert Allen Lemmon (son of James Lemmon) and also Charles Wise, neighbors and also friends of his own son "Alec." These two boys were so delighted with Texas that they selected 640 acres of land lying next to the Rawlins grand and walked back to Illinois to bring their parents. When they reached the Mississippi River they fashioned a raft from drift wood tying the wood together with stout vines and attempted to paddle directly across, but when they reached the other side they were fifteen miles down stream and had to walk back to their destination. Robert Allen Lemmon returned with his father, James Lemmon, his mother Amy Rawlins Lemmon and his younger brother Jackson Lemmon in August 1845.

James Lemmon, a citizen of the Republic of Texas, died on July 4th, 1858 at his home three miles below Lancaster on the Dallas Ellis County line. He was buried 93 years ago in Edgewood Cemetery, Lancaster, Texas near the spot where the Rawlins caravan camped the night in arrived in Peter's Colony in 1844.
