Notes

AGNES BURKINSHAW ELLIOTT

Grain Moore was just another small English village where the miners, tired and weary, finished the day. In this hamlet in Thurgoland Parish a little girl who was christened, AGNES BURKINSHAW was born August 3, 1856.

The family moved to Shortwood, another mining town when she was about nine years old. The following year another move was made, this time to Tankersley, also a mining town. Here Agnes attended a school where she learned reading, writing, arithmet ic, knitting, patching, seaming and hemming.

She was just a little English girl for five years, working in the home. The floor of the house was made of slabs of stone about six by two feet wide set close together. These stones were cold. In the winter when the cold rains came, the children would huddle around the fireplace that was built in the wall, too high to warm the floor. At night the father would cone home, dirty and tired from working in the mines.

When she was fifteen, Agnes became a girl of service, First, she was a nurse maid for some people’s children. Later she worked for a certain Miss Lister, to whom she was a maid. She and another girl were the only maids, but because Agnes was give n more privileges, allowed to eat in the same room and be almost a companion, the other maid became jealous and began telling lies about Agnes.
When Agnes discovered this, she became angry and being unwilling to work with the girl, left the service.

She then worked in Tankersley, Yorkshire, for George Blake talker, musician. Here she net Thomas Elliott at a church social. When he took her home, he only took her part way because he was afraid his father would object to his walking past his ow nhome, which was necessary to pass. Feb. 5, 1S84, they were married and lived at Tankersley with his parents.

When John, Thomas’s father died, the Elders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints began coming to the home more often, being encouraged by the family now. For although John was a Mormon, the other members of the family were prejudice d before his death, Thomas was baptized first in the river near Tankersley. Mrs. John Elliott, her daughter, Sarah and her Daughters-in-law, Agnes, Annis, and Bertha went to Sheffield to be baptized by Rubin S. Collet. Later her daughters Lillian , Alice and Annie were baptized by Frank Bramwell.

Two years later they came to Utah in the United States, where Wm. F. Rigby asked them to come to Rexburg, which they did. To this family were born seven children, Charles - October 27, 1884, Lucy - Feb. 20, 1887 ‎(born in England)‎, John Thomas - S ept 26, 1889; Lilly - Dec. 19. 1891, George O. - Feb. 11. 1894, Howard B. - Oct 6, 1896 and Adah - Dec. 23, 1898.

In 1904, they moved to St. Anthony, Idaho, where they later built a home on 49 East 3rd South. There Agnes, through her years of pioneering, is now a woman seventy-eight years old, all her family gone. Her husband passed away in 1927. Charles in Oakley, Idaho; Lucy in Boise, Idaho; John in Rexburg, Idaho; George in Salt Lake City, Utah, Howard in Oakland, California and Lilly passed away in St. Anthony 1918.

Alone she lives in her home enjoying solitude and independence as best she can. She's just like most grandmothers, their glory is their past,

In the little mining town of Shortwood, England, where my Grandmother Elliott lived. The floors of the little frame houses were merely cheap brick laid on the dirt. As the bricks wore out, they were replaced by large flat stones found in the surr ounding territory. Grandmother remembers scrubbing these large stones. Many times they were six or seven feet long and from three feet wide to a square, seven feet on all sides. On the outside wall of the kitchen the fireplace was found, This fir e was useless as far as keeping the floor warm was concerned, for they were from one to three feet from the floor. These fireplaces were also made from bricks. All the cooking was done over these poor imitations of stoves.

Taken from Treasures of Truth by Lona Elliott, a granddaughter of Agnes Elliott, who spent many hours talking and visiting her.
