girls Seminary in New York City New York, and was given an excellent education
for those days. Previous to her conversion to Mormonism both she and her people
were staunch Baptists.

sisters, Eugenia and Mary, both of whom were older than she and two brothers,
Edmond who was older and William who was younger. Her
father, because of poor health sold his property and moved to the Catskill Mountains
in New York where he ran a store. While there, he went into partnership with
his brother Francis Bond and as a result had to sell his store to pay Francis'

mother had consumption at the time she was baptized and the Elders promised
that she would be healed and she was. The doctors had told her she couldn't
live six months. The family moved to Nauvoo in 1842 or 1843. They moved by way
of Kirtland where they visited the Temple and Mary, Julia and William went through
it. They left Eugenia and Edmond in New York to follow later as they were oldest,
due to lack of funds. These two died of Typhoid Fever soon after and were never
permitted to join their family as they had planned.

at the meeting when the mantle of the Prophet fell on Brigham Young and remembered
all the mobbing, etc.; this was always a wonderful testimony to her. At the
time of her father's death both Mary and Julia Anner and Mary's husband Amos

her to see when her pulse would stop and would raise her shoulders a little
and give her a few drops of wine to start her pulse. Her brother-in-law was
killed while cutting wood.

little land plowed for them and they raised some corn and garden and the mother
took care of two aged people (one who died) for this she received a little pay.
Mary worked for a family, as due to the father's death, the family was compelled
to separate and come to Utah with different friends and relatives. The mother

"The Harmony Valley - and New Harmony, Utah - History and Memories"
by Sheldon B Grant with Kay Daun Pace Edwards
Adelia Carbine was born February 27, 1824, in Cairo, Green County, New York.
She graduated from a seminary for girls in her fifteenth year and began teaching.
She continued in that profession until her fiftieth year and was always a student--desiring
to learn some new fact every day of her life.
Mary's family joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints while she
was still in her teens. She moved with her family to Nauvoo, Illinois. It was
in Nauvoo that Mary met and married Amos Northrup. They were one of the relatively
few couples to be married in the Nauvoo Temple. Their first child, a daughter,
was born just before the Saints were driven out of Nauvoo.
after reaching Winter Quarters, Mary's young husband was murdered by an unknown
assailant on Christmas Day. Until her death she grieved at Christmas time for
her first and greatest love. By that time, Amos and Mary had two children, Eugenia
and Llewellyn, but Llewellyn died and was buried in a grave along the trail
Not knowing where to turn and concerned for the welfare of her tiny family,
Mary married Robert C. Petty just before the Saints left Winter Quarters. Robert
was a captain in the Wilford Woodnff company. Mary and Robert had two children,
Adelia and Ella. Shortly after they reached Utah Robert Petty was called on
a mission to the area known as the Indian Country. Eugenia was about three years
old and Ella just a babe in arms when he left. Robert died in the Indian Country
in 1856, but Mary did not learn of his death until six months later.
again faced the problems associated with widowhood and providing for a young
family. Her choices were few. She became the second wife of George Roberts Grant.
Mary and George also had two children, Francisca, a little girl who was scalded
to death in infancy, and a son, Edmund Carbine Grant. It was not long before
Mary faced another difficult situation. George Roberts Grant was called before
a Bishop's Court over some difficulty with a hired hand and unjustly excommunicated
from the Church. When President Brigham Young heard about it, he made a special
trip to Kaysville where the Grants were living and tried to get George to come
back into the fold. George, however, could not be persuaded and had decided
to go to California. Mary did not want to go to California because she would
not be recognized as a legal wife in that state. George, who was quite well-to-do,
made provision for her and her tiny son and left them in northern Utah.
before there was only one course open to Mary-marriage. Therefore, in the early
1860s, Mary was married for a fourth time to William Warren Taylor. Soon after
their marriage she moved ,with her husband to Harrisburg, Utah. Later the family
moved to New Harmony. Mary and William had three sons: Albert Eugene, Francis
Green, and James Edgar Taylor. This marriage, too, was a source of heartache
for Mary. William Warren Taylor died tragically in New Harmony when a cellar
caved in on him.
Adeha Carbine Taylor was appointed Postmistress of New Harmony, Kane [sic]County,
by the Postmaster General of the United States on September 24, 1878, and served
in that capacity for 25 years. The loss of her eyesight eventually forced her
to relinquish that position. She also served as one of the first school teachers
in New Harmony, teaching at the John D. Lee property until she got her own home.
She worked as postmistress during the day and taught school at night. Mary also
washed, corded, and spun wool into cloth to support her family. This great woman
died in Delmar, Nevada, on November 13, 1906, at the age of 82 after a life
filled with joy, sorrow, challenges, service, and accomplishment.
