"A Man of Great Courage"

Born: June 17, 1811 - Died: April 6, 1890

Thomas Butterfield, his wife Mary Jane Parker and little Mary Jane left their home in Farmington, Maine in 1869 to travel to Kirtland, Ohio to meet the Prophet Joseph Smith. There they became lifelong friends. Thomas lent money to the Prophet and refused Joseph's favorite black horse as the note came due. For this Joseph promised the Butterfield Family that they would "never want for bread."

Almon was born in Nauvoo, George and Sarah on the trek west, at Kanesville. Mary Jane and Almon walked driving their sheep the entire way as the family worked its way west.

The Butterfield Family settled on the banks of the Jordan River in 1849. There Olive was born. In the Fall of 1851, Thomas rode into the West Mountains and found clear drinking water in a canyon which now bears his name. The settlement was later named Herriman.

We thank you, Thomas Butterfield, for coming west and sharing the Gospel with us. Monument erected by Bettie (Bessie) Hannah Butterfield. Fall 1976. Built by George Reynold Butterfield, 4th of eight sons born to Henry and Bessie Butterfield.
