Bit of followup..This is NOT my personal research...
James David Wilcox (son of Henry) and his uncle, Henry Miller, traveled to
Utah in September,1852, on their way to the California gold fields. They
were persuaded to stay with Henry's brothers at Farmington due to the
lateness of the season. Thomas Wilcox writes, "He (James David) had brought
with him from the East, a beautiful gold ring which his cousins were
desirous to obtain from him, but he refused, saying, 'No, the only girl who
wears this ring will be the one who becomes my wife.'" He became much
impressed by Anna Maria Robinson, and his infatuation led him to accept the
Mormon faith so that they could marry. This step also provided him the
opportunity to wed a second wife, which he soon did in 1862. As was the
custom of Mormons at that time, he had these two wives concurrently. In all
he had twenty-three children. (This writer is not sure which wife kept the
James practiced many trades including cabinet-making, wheelwright, drum
making, plastering, and masonry. He was a skillful hunter and
horticulturist, raising the first fruit in Farmington.
