    Biography
    • Riding, Christopher Lister (Male)In 1860, Christopher had a household of 6, a real wealth of $300, and a personal wealth of $250. In 1870, he had a household of 12, a real wealth of $500, and a personal wealth of $100.
         Christopher Lister Riding was born February 10, 1816, in Burnley, England. His parents, Thomas and Eleanor Lister Riding, were of the sturdy middle class, his father being a baker by trade and owning his own shop. At an early age he was apprenticed to a tinsmith to learn the trade. He was very apt at this work and was made a master mechanic before he was twenty- one years of age. He married Maryann Hale, a girl born and raised in his own home town. The young couple heard the gospel and were baptized February 14, 1840. By 1847 the family had saved enough money to come to the United States. They came as far as St. Louis, Missouri, where their lack of finance compelled them to stop.
         During this time Christopher worked at his trade. By the end of five years he had collected money enough to purchase a wagon, a yoke of oxen, two cows, and supplies enough to last his family on the journey across the plains.
         When they arrived in Salt Lake City they were housed first in a one- roomed log house like the one in preservation on the Temple grounds. In this house, their fifth child, Taylor, was born. Soon Brother Riding bought a lot on the block where the Walker Bank now stands. He erected a two- roomed adobe house. He found work plentiful in Salt Lake. He met and married his second wife, Eliza Adelaide Dolbell, a French girl who had come to Utah with her mother. At the time of the move south, Brother Riding took his families to Provo. Here he was called to the Dixie Mission, settling in Santa Clara in 1860. He lived there two years when all that he had was washed away by the "Big Flood." However, he had received a call to come to St. George, previous to this. He built a dugout 12x15, thatched with a willow roof. This with one tent and a willow shed sheltered his two families. He was soon able to build a one- roomed adobe house and later a shop.
         There was not enough business in St. George to provide him work, so he secured a little four- wheeled cart and an ox. He loaded his cart with tinware and tools and visited all the northern settlements as far north as Beaver, selling his wares and accepting flour, butter, potatoes, cheese, etc. Later he secured a horse for his cart, and continued his trips until he became a well- known figure throughout the southern part of the state.
         He made his wares from waste cans, as it was difficult and expensive to ship in sheet tin. People saved empty cans and old metal ware of all kinds for him. His store of wares consisted of buckets, milk pans, tin cups and plates, bread cans, lamps, canteens, coffee pots, washboards, etc.
         He was a master workman in every sense of the word. Some of his buckets and pans are still in use. The ball on the Temple and the one on the Tabernacle are his work, as is the metal work [p.450] on all the public buildings of town erected before his death. He died November 29, 1887, after a brief illness of only six days. Ella J. Seegmiller. [The Pioneer Wood Turner]
