      By Daryl James [http://home.earthlink.net.~jameshistory/p_draper.html]
          Zemira Palmer was born Aug. 9, 1831, at West Loughborough,, Onatrio, Canada, the sixth child of George Palmer Jr. and Phebe draper.
           Zemira's mother joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Canada when Zemira was 2, and Zemira inherited his religion from her.  He remained faithful to its cause throughout his life.  However, his father did not join the Church and died shortly after Phebe's conversion.
           About 1834, after his fther's death, Zemira came with his mother from Canada to join the Saints in Kirtland, Ohio.  He remained in Kirtland until age 7, when he moved again with his mother to Illinois.
           In 1846, Mormon persecutors forced the Saints out of Illinois under bloody and miserable circumstances, and Zemira moved westward with his mother and new stepfather, Ebenezer Brown.
           On their way through Iowa, the Saints received a call from Captain James Allen to furnish 500 abel-bodied men to march against Mexico under the command of Colonel Stephen L. Kearny.
           When Ebenzer volunteered as a soldier for the battalion, Phebe joined as a laundress in order to remain with her husband.  Zemira, at the age of 14 or 15, was too young to join as a soldier, so instead joined as an orderly to Captain Allen.
           The Mormon Battalion marched more than 2,000 miles to San Diego, California.  Although the soldiers never saw battle, many died of thirst, hunger, and exhaustion along the way.  After the ordeal was over, Phebe confessed that she somethimes burned a little bread purposely to make it look inedible so she could give it to Zemira.
          After Zemira's service in the armed forces ended, he was among the battalion members who found work at Sutter's Mill in northern California.  By this time he was 17 and stood about six feet high.  He was present when gold was discovered and did some washing of gold on his own.  He found a spot rich in gold dust and came out with enough to begin life for himself in Utah.
           He settled at Willow Creek in 1850, and forthwith became the second counselor in the first bishopric of the Draper ward.  His uncle, William Draper, was the bishop and his other uncle, Zemira Draper, was the first counselor.  Not long after this he met Sally Knight and married her on her 15th birthday, Dec. 1, 1851, at Provo, Utah.  Sally was the oldest daughter of Newel Knight and Lydia Goldthwaite.
           Zemira and Sally lived in Provo until about 1861, when they moved to Heber City, Utah.  Two or three yers before this, Zemira married as his second wife Caroline Jacques.  By these two women Zemira had 20 children, 16 of which lived to adulthood.
           While at Heber City, Zemira served a term as Constable of Wasatch County.  However, he never stayed in one place long.  After six or seven years he took his family to Nevada, living first at Panaca and then at Eagle Valley.  Although his motives for moving to Nevada are uncertain, he may have been lured there by the active mining industry, hoping to duplicate the success he had in California.
           However, after a few years the Church called him back to southern Utah to assist in promoting the cotton industry there.  He operated from Springdale and Santa Clara in Washington County, but finally settled in Orderville, where he and Zemira Draper organized and supervised branches of the United Order.
           He loved poetry and often wrote lyrics to songs and performed them in public.  He suffered ill health several years before his death and died prematurely at 49 in Orderville on Oct. 22, 1880.
      ***

      The following excerpts were taken from the books, "Pioneers and Prominent Men of Utah"  by Frank Esshom, "Our Pioneer Heritage" by Kate B. Carter, " and "Heart Throbs of the West" by Kate B. Carter volume 4.:
      "Zemira was born in the Province of Upper Canada.  When his father died his mother married Ebenezer Brown, and when she was given the privilege of accompanying her husband on the march of the Mormon Battalion, Zemira asked to go with them.  Although he was not old enough to be a soldier he was given permission by the officers in charge to go provided he could carry a gun and all the other necessary equipment.  His mother, knowing the need of a growing boy for extra food, often purposely burned the bread served to the officers so that they would cut off the blackened crusts.  These she saved for Zemira who said they tasted better than a piece of pie under other circumstances.

      "The following were too young to serve as soldiers, but went with the Mormon Battalion as servants to the officers.  They are entitled to much praise for their youthful patriotism and bravery:  Zemira Palmer, William Byron Pace, Wilson D. Pace, N.D. Higgins, Charles Edwin Colton, James Mowrey, and Elisha Smith.

      "After the disbanding of the Battalion in Los Angeles, Zemira helped his parents pan gold in order to get an outfit and enough provisions to join the Saints in Utah.

      "He married Sally Knight, their twins Mary and Martha died when 1 and 8 days old.  Alma married Alzada S. Kartchner; Lydia married John Kartchner; Phebe married Mark Elisha Kartchner; James married Mary Ann Black; George married Lucity Stalworthy; Jesse married Amanda Hoyt; Emma married Wilford  W. Heaton; Newel married Lydia Robertson; Joseph married Helen Jane Robertson;  Chloe.

      "In his later years he was called to live in the United Order in southern Utah where he served as one of the leaders. 

      "Zemira was sent to oversee the cotton farm in Washington County.  Several families lived there to help raise the cotton.  During picking season a group of young folks went down to pick the cotton.  They did not raise as much cotton as they had anticipated when they bought the farm.  Alfalfa was raised on part of the land.  The people bought cloth made there after the Order broke up.

      "He married Caroline Jacques in 1856 at Provo, Utah (daughter of Thomas Jacques).  Their children: Sarah A.. married Ames Cox; Susan married Benjamin Black; George Edwin married Estella MacElprang; Daniel W. married Violet Walker;  Eve married Theodore Cox; Laura married Henry Walker.  Their families resided at Provo.

Brother Palmer was born in the province of upper Canada, county of Frontenac, Midland district, East Laborough, August 9th, 1831. his mother was baptized by Elder Brigham Young in 1833. his father, who opposed the truth, died in 1834, and in 1835 the family moved to Kirtland, Ohio, and shared the many persecutions the saints were called to endure. At Council Bluffs he sought to enlist in the Mormon Battalion, but his age and feeble appearnce barred his enlistment. He was, however, determined to take part in that mission, and found employment as a servant to Captain Allen, until the captain's death, when he was attached to Lieutenant Clark, and bore cheerfully all the trials of that unparalleled journey. he reached the valley in the fall of 1848.

           Explanation for any who might call up their PAF Palmer Pedigree chart from the Internet or any Church record, and find this ancestor listed as with a nickname (Jim) Zemira Palmer can know that a descendant has made a terrible mistake of using a nick-name he supposed was used by our Zemira Palmer, which is very wrong, he is written only as Zemira in all records found of him & in his letters he signed Zemira or just Z.

           Municipal Records of Toronto, purchased 5/2000, and recorded by the Clerks of the Peace, for Cramahe & Haldimand County, Northumberland County, read and recorded by two researchers, tell us that Zemira's father is George Palmer Jr. and his mother is Phebe Draper, that they lived first in Cramahe, Northumberland County, were married there where Lovina & Asahel were born.  His father, called George Palmer Junior, sold his Grant land and moved to Haldimand Twp, where his bro Wm George was born 1821. that they moved out of Haldimand before 25 Apr 1823, (copy obtained) & they remove over 100 kilometers east to near Kingston, at Loughborough Township, Frontenac County, Midland District, Ontario, Canada, where his sisters Eliza and Lydia, & Zemira were born and where his father died in Dec. 1833, and his sister, Rhoda, was born there on March 15, 1834.  His grandfather is George Palmer who went to live in Cramahe Township, Northumberland County,Upper Canada in 1793, as a settler along with 40 other families. Zemira was born 9 Aug 1831 in Loughborough, a township in Frontenac County, Midland District, Upper Canada, Ontario; also in Family Record, handwritten, by his mother, Phebe Draper Palmer, & on Pre-Endowment House FHL Film #183,393 Bk A, #1987; His & Sally's Sealing record #l83,394, Bk B, p.33, witnesses M.J.Grant & W.W. Phelps.
           Municipal Records of Toronto, purchased 5/2000, and searched, tell us that Zemira's father is George Palmer Jr and his mother is Phebe Draper, that they lived first in Cramahe, Northumberland County, were married there where Lovina Palmer [b. 20 July 1816] & Asahel Palmer [b. 26 Jan 1819] were born.
      His father, called George Palmer Junior, sold his Grant land and moved to Haldimand Twp, where his bro William George Palmer was born 25 August l821. They moved out of Haldimand before 25 Apr 1823, (copy obtained) & they removed over 100 kilometers east to near Kingston, at Loughborough Township, Frontenac County, Midland District, Ontario, Canada, where his sisters Eliza Palmer [b.31 May 1824] and Lydia Palmer [b. 15 Oct 1826], & Zemira Palmer [b. 9 Aug 1831] were born, and his sister, Rhoda Palmer was born there on March 15, 1834; and where his father died in Dec. 1833.
           Zemira spent only 2 years & 4 months in Loughborough with his family, and his grandparents, Wm & Lydia Lathrop Draper & his grand uncle Thomas Draper Jr. & Mary Mosier Draper & their children; 2/l819 Census of Loughborough Township shows names of this Thomas Draper, wife as Hannah (Mary) & one son, Wm, who is not his son, but born to his wife Mary Mosier who md lst to Carey; A son Thomas, probably Reuben, the only son b.before 1819, also named were their daus Viny, Mary, Ruth & Anne.
           Zemira's mother joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on 17 February 1833 in Loughborough where a Branch of the Church was organized in 1833. Also Thomas Jr & Mary Mosier Draper, along with Wm & Lydia Lathrop Draper, all leave Canada by late l834 or l835 and are found living in Kirtland, Geauga, Ohio. This great uncle Thomas died in Pike Co.IL.1841.
           Mother Phebe Palmer with her children Asahel, Wm George, Lydia, Zemira and baby Rhoda move with her Drapers to Kirtland, Geauga, now Lake County, Ohio, U.S. Zemira not five by the 28th March 1836, when his mother received her Patriarchal Blessing there, and Zemira's grandfather, William Draper Sr was ordained a Priest by D.C.Smith. No doubt all were partakers of the great Dedication of that great Kirtland Temple. First temple built, and visited by the Savior, the ancient prophets, Elijah and others.
           1838, Mar to Sept 10th, Zemira with his mother Phebe Draper Palmer, his bro. Wm & sisters Lydia & Rhoda (not listed by name, but under his uncle Zemira Draper-6 persons), listed with Kirtland Camp of Saints travelling to Missouri Read of others of that camp group named in The History of the Church Vol.III, pgs.92 thur 138). The Drapers start with this group, but drop out about l0th Sept 1838 in Edgar County, IL, 494 miles from Kirtland, Ohio, because of funds and elderly age of his grandfather, Wm Draper Sr. & Lydia; Also his sister with husband Henry Munroe,two aunts with VanLeuven husbands; and Thomas Draper (Jr family) and others names.
           His brother Asahel Palmer's 2nd child, Emaline Palmer gave her birth place as Sangamon Co, IL, where they may have contacted each other then or sooner.
           1840 June U.S. Census of Pleasantvale (see map), Pike, IL, Zemira age 9 is shown in household of his uncle Zemira Draper & grandparents, Wm & Lydia Lathrop Draper Sr. In the Next house was his mother, and his brother William George 19, sisters Lydia 13, Rhoda 6; next house uncle William Draper, next house uncle Alfred R. Draper, all at Pleasantvale, a precinct in Pike County, IL. Pg.96 shows his uncle Marvin Draper & gd uncle Thomas Draper Jr's family, (Films 007,645, Pike County, IL).
           Feb 24, l842, his bro. Wm George Palmer was married to his grand uncle Thomas Draper's daughter Susan Draper.
      Nothing more found about Susan, said to have died soon & Wm George is not found again until he is with the Philamon Merrill Company in 1856 going to Great SL City, with his 2nd wife, Ellen Perdun/Purdun.
           1839-42 a Nauvoo, Hancock Co.,IL. census shows his brother Asahel (written as Asel) & wife Evaline PARMER, part tax & members of a Ward, also his mother as P(hebe) D(raper), Palmer, a member of the Church there (probably only a visit for her to be with Asahel). Phebe had married E.Brown 28 August l842.
           By 1844, Zemira is with his uncle Zemira Draper & his grandparents at Morley Hancock County, IL, a settlement in " Spokes on the Wheel", named by the Prophet. Mother now Phebe Draper Palmer Brown has moved into a settlement called Bear Creek, with her daughters Lydia & Rhoda Brown, but should have been given as Palmer; also Lovina Palmer with her husband, Henry Munroe. The mobs had driven the saints from their lovely homes in Pleasantvale, Pike County, IL. although they formerly were treated as good neighbors. One history item read by Newel Palmer gave that our Newel Knight was sent by the Prophet Joseph Smith to organize this branch into a Stake as it had become that large.
           1844, Apr. 8th, Phebe D. Palmer Brown is at Bear Creek settlement some miles south of Carthage & far distance more from Nauvoo, but she goes to the temple and is baptized for her deceased husband, George PALMER (father of Zemira). We find her back to the temple on 24 Dec 1845, for her endowment, & his Uncle Zemira Draper and grandparents are at NV temple on 25 Dec 1845. The prophet, Joseph Smith & his bro. Hyrum are murdered at Carthage, Hancock, IL, 6/27/1844
           The Saints are driven from these places and from Nauvoo, where their beautiful Temple was destroyed. (June 27, 2002, Nauvoo Temple again built & dedicated) Zemira's bros Asahel & Wm George remained & found in Sangamon Co., IL, where Church History (Vol.3) speaks of the Drapers. Grandmother, Lydia dies at or near Montrose, Lee, Iowa, where Zemira Draper remains for a time, but Phebe & Brown are with her daus near Garden Grove, Iowa, dau. Lovina Munro where Henry dies in l847; and dau Lydia md Anthony Bruno 1846 & both remain in Iowa until after their husband's deaths, then go to Utah.
           Zemira along with his mother at Mt.Pisgah hears that the Government want 500 men as soldiers for the War with Mexico. At Council Bluffs, Iowa, Ebenezer Brown signs up, as does his mother, who goes entire march one of 4 women; and Zemira as Orderly for the officers, although only l4 until August l846, all in that Mormon Battalion, the only Battalion with a names rather than a number.
           Military Service: Zemira, was an orderly to Lt Col. James Allen until his death, 23 Aug 1846, then other officers. Zemira was only 14 until 9 Aug 1846, when the Battalion left Council Bluffs, Iowa Territory, on 6 July l846, to the conclusion of its March of over 2000 miles. Zemira was entitled to much praise for his patriotism & bravery. They were discharged 16 Jan 1847, at San Diego. 81 officers & men reenlisted, performed garrison service at San Diego. Then on to Los Reyes, Ciudad de Los Angeles. It is said that some arrived in Salt Lake Valley on 1 Oct 1847, but Zemira went with other young men later. It is noted here that Zemira was in the Army to seal our borders from Mexico; His father had been a Soldier in the War of 1812, to seal the borders of Canada from U.S. but Canada called it, The War with the Americans.
           Gold was discovered near Sutter's Mill on 24 Jan 1848. Sarah Arletta Palmer, writes as quoted from Harriet Esplin-6/1953: "Zemira worked as a Bar Tender in San Bernardino, where he went to school in the day, where he had a Spanish teacher. He went to Utah with a detachment of the Mormon Battalion who arrived in SLC later that year". It is told Zemira panned gold and obtained $500.00, then went to Great Salt Lake, Utah. His mother & Brown came to Utah later in l849, (read in Book pp 860-863).
           At Salt Lake he went to school and worked at the carpenter trade. He wrote songs and poems for different occasions and was a great social leader. He loved to dance the old Reels & Quadrilles, made a fine figure on the floor, being straight as an arrow and moving with grace & ease. When boarding at a lady's place he noticed that his white pillow slip got very dirty, so he made himself a nightcap which he was very careful that no one could see. He wore a mustache, which he kept trimmed very neatly".
           1849, he in company with nine men to ferry California & Oregon Emigrations over the Green River.
           1850 Census Zemira is listed in Great Salt Lake, Utah, age 19, with James Hibbard age 19, and George Stiles 22. With his own team he crossed the plains to help gather the Saints. Counselor to Bishop Wm Draper, his uncle, in Willow Creek, now Draper, Utah, for a time, 2nd counselor was uncle Zemira Draper.
           1 Jan 1851, he had found his Sally Knight. She writes in her history that they were married at Salt Lake City. Then a very special record tells that they were sealed at 2/5 p.m by H. C. Kimball on 18 Sep 1855, in the Endowment House; witnesses were J.M.Grant and W.W. Phelps. No temple dedicated in Utah until 6 Apr 1877. (Document in Film #l83, 394, Bk B, p.33, ENDOWMENT HOUSE). By 30 March 1856 at 7:00 p.m, we read Zemira did marry Caroline JACQUES in the same document & witnesses were George W. Jacques & Israel IVINS).
           7 March 1855, an Endowment House RECORD in FILM #183,393 (25165,pt.l3) shows #l987, for Zemira Palmer born in Upper Canada on 9 Aug 1831 & Sally Knight born at Gallatin a township in Clay County, MO. Then the St George Temple was ready and they lived near, when on 25 Oct l877 Zemira took Alma Zemira Palmer and had him and his twin sisters, Mary b. & d. 8 Jan 1855 & Martha b & d l Jan 1855, sealed to them. This tells me that as more revelation came and was understood, they complied, and lived by all new knowledge and commandments.
           1856 Census of Provo, Utah, shows Zemira Palmer, Caroline Jakes (Jacques) & Sally Knight, her children-Alma, Mary & Martha, & dau Lydia (FHL Film 505,913, pg 963, & folder #32); p.962 a Thomas Jakes family & p.963 James Knight family. THEN 1856 Census of Utah, Davis County, North Canyon Ward gave ZAMIRA Palmer with Phillis & Lavinia-same film p.87, JT. (Can this be our Zemira at Bountiful, Davis, Utah, which was called Cedar County at that time, Cedar county no longer exists, who are the two females? you find.
           Aug 4, 1856, Zemira is at the Church farm Salt Lake County, when he & Sally receive a Patriarchal Blessing by John Smith, Zemira scribe for her blessing of 20 Aug 1861, when both have another Blessing by John Young, Patriarch, at Provo Valley. Zemira gave that he is son of George & Phebe Draper Palmer born in Province of Upper Canada 9 Aug 1831. Sally gave she is dau of Newel & Lydia Knight, b. Gallatin Township, Clay County, Missouri. (Greg Collinwood 1/2000, shared these copies; which copies were sent to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. 6/2000 the Ensign said Patriarchal Blessings will go to the FHLibrary now (2002) for use by all.
           1860, Oct. census Zemira (spelled Cemyra) age 26, Caroline age l7, b. New Brunswick, $200 personal property, dau Arletta p.886, #2875; Wife Sally as Sarah Palmer age 24, seamstress $200/150 in Provo City with son Alma Z. age 7 Lydia A. 4, & Phebe 2. They made a fine family & worked in the Church callings, & accomplished many great works throughout Nevada & southern Utah. They made a fine combination and go forward to bless the lives of their children, accepted & fulfilled all callings from the Church authorities.
           The Deseret Newspaper said of the 24th Celebration in 1860 in Provo Valley, Zemira sang an appropriate song and the day ushered in by the firing of Musketry under the direction of Capt Zemira Palmer. Zemira has 3 or more pieces of property in Provo, which he donated to B. Young for the Church. About this time her brother, Jesse Knight, was blessed to find a Gold Mine, which got the Church out of debt & helped to keep the BYU going.
           He lived in Heber City from 1861 to 1865, where we find in Book "How Beautiful upon the Mountains, a Centennial History of Wasatch County", 1963 by Wm James Mortimer, quote:pg. 9, Zemira Palmer named on Fort Heber map; pg 15 gave West Side. Zemira Palmer spent the winter of 1861 along with 15 other families named on that side, Zemira at top NW; pg. 17 gave Zemira Palmer Constable for precinct No.l; (Children shown born there were George A. l862, Susan l863, James Milo Dec l864 & Mary Dell l Sept l864). Page 467/8 gave a short history date & place of his birth, his mother's Pat. Blg mentioned & listed 9 names of Sally's 12 children & 5 names of Caroline's 8 children.

      Zemira kept a Diary of his activities. Many pages were missing by the time Lenna Cox Wilcock shared her 37 pages she had typed about 1954 from the original, then in possession of Inez Hoyt, dau of Emma P. Heaton. Lucile Brubaker, sent Lois Allen 37 pages of that copy. Much of the following items were learned from his Diary, dated l Jan l872 to 9 Oct l879.

           His obituary notice gave date of 4/11/1865 when he was called to southern Utah and located by Pres. Snow at Meadow Valley. His Diary gave a date 1 Jan 1872, when he tells of his years at Panaca, Eagle Valley, Dry Valley in Lincoln County, Nevada, where he speaks of the many activities he did there, of paying his tithing and his taxes. This place was in Lincoln County, which became known as Nevada State, not Utah, and the saints were being charged taxes by 3 states. He moves his families to southern Utah. (read and Diary)
           The winter of 1873/74 they are at Panguitch, where his first child, son Alma Z. Palmer did The winter of 1873/74 they are at Panguitch, where his first child, son Alma Z. Palmer did go & had bought land. Zemira's Diary tells of teaching school in the kitchen of Bro. Wm D. Kartchner's home, to their children and his own.
      11 Apr 1874, was requested by Pres. Young to move to Springdale on the Virgin River & take charge of that place, in Washington County, Utah
           A quote from his Diary, p.90, "Oct 24, 1877, in the Temple (St George) had our son Alma Zemira & two twin daughters, Mary & Martha who were born before we had our sealing, sealed to us, being according to the Law of the Lord".
           Nov 13, 1877, he writes: "having been appointed to take charge of the Cotton farm, I, in company with Bp Hogan, started for that place. (worked hard) Feb 2, l878, Quote "Attended Priesthood meeting at St.George & was set apart as Presiding Priest at the Orderville Cotton farm, Branch of the Washington Ward under the hands of Pres. J.D.T. McAllister & his councilors, T. Jones & Henry Eyring. This place was a little above Washington City, Washington County, Utah, called the Orderville Order, but a long distance from town of Orderville, Kane, Utah.
           At the Orderville Cotton Farm Dec 18, l878, he writes his mother (Phebe Draper Palmer Brown), who lived at Draper, Salt Lake County, Utah. He tells where he labored for what was part of the Orderville Order, but located a little above Washington City, Washington County, Utah. He Worked hard, planted cotton, ordered and set up the cotton mill, and they did make clothe. He speaks of irrigating, picking cotton & even picked it in the house when weather bad. Also speaks of planting peach trees & peach pits, and other plants & much work for the order. He did a very fine work there. Caroline & family were at Orderville, Kane County, and where she died December 1877.
           Dec 18, 1878 letter in his own handwriting, to his Mother (Phebe Palmer) 2nd letter to her dated l/30/1879, both from cotton farm. Then to his sister Lovina, (after his mother had died in Dec 1879), this Letter from Enterprise, June l880; one 6/13/1880, now at Orderville, Kane, very interesting letters.
           Zemira died 22 Oct 1880 & buried 23rd (although it reads as died on 23rd), this would be the burial date, at Orderville, Kane, Utah. Caroline in grave #26 & a fine headstone by her great & grand children was made & set in July 200l & picture sent to Lois & given back to Lucile. Block l, Lot l, Sally is in grave #25, Caroline grave 26, & Zemira Palmer grave 27.
           Elmer F. Cox, a great grandson, writes: "Zemira was neat and particular about his appearance. He was honest and very strict. When he spoke to his children, they knew he meant business and they responded accordingly, He was religious and held many responsible positions in the Church. He was intelligent & a real asset in helping to colonize several communities, such as Provo, Heber City, Dry Valley, Lincoln, Nevada, Panguitch & Springdale, Orderville. Spoke of Wm D.Kartchner, whose dau, Alzada md son Alma Z.

Other avocations were shoeing oxen & horses, mending harnesses, repairing wagons, mending shoes, fixing & working on roads, & many other things. While in Dry Valley, Nevada he was active in law & court proceedings. He was a member of a jury in Pioche and he had to travel there for court sessions. In 4/1874 Pres. Brigham Young requested him to move to Springdale & organize the United Order there. In June of 1877 he was appointed to go to Leeds & appraise the property of 3 men who had joined order at Orderville. It was here he heard of the death of his wife Caroline. They decided to make a permanent headquarters of the United Order there in LEEDS?, so he moved his wife & 3 youngest children there. Here he worked on getting cotton production going & was later set apart as presiding elder of the Cotton Farm. His responsibilities at the farm were many and he was adept at almost anything he tried". 7/1877, Appointed by Pres, J.D.T. McAllister to take charge of Leeds Ward while Bishop Hogan goes north to Cache Co. Went to Harrisburg in the afternoon, it being a part of the Ward, held meeting, was sustained by the people of both towns by unanimous vote, was released by 11/1877 when Bp. Hogan returned. Zemira's diary speaks of being ill.
           At the Orderville Cotton Farm Dec 18, 1878, he writes his mother (Phebe Draper Palmer Brown who lived at Draper) a letter. (copies of letters by him and extraction of his DIARY he kept may go into the Historical Dept or FHLibrary, after Lucile Brubaker typed and hands in, Ula has typed an Excerpt (& names added in some places as known by she & Lois).
           "In 1878 he had several periods of illness. He reports that the 3rd time he became ill in September with a strange, severe pain in his stomach. He nearly died during this illness which lasted until November. From then on until his death on 22 Oct. 1800, he was occasionally unwell. He was a good man who left a rich heritage for those of us who follow. He was honest, hard working, inventive and was very instrumental in the development of the southern Utah area". (collected & arranged by Lenna Cox Wilcock on 2/24/l955. 6/2000 Lenna & her dau. Lucile Wilcock Brubaker sent to LPAllen a 37 page of Zemira's own Diary, the original obtained & typed up by Lenna about l954, from Ines Hoyt.
           Articles in 1996 Church News, Sesquicentennial Year, are great. Kevin E. Palmer & others represented Zemira in the Battalion Commemoration at historic military post at Fort Leavenworth, KS; the Battalion mustering re-enactment Church News 7/20/1996 & Dec 14, 1996, Omaha, Nebraska, Mormon Trail Center Exhibit at Historic Winter Quarters in Omaha. Brigham Young tells the men of Zion's Camp of the need to join & serve their nation, which had just driven them from their beautiful homes the 3rd time.
           A fine play was written & produced by Kevin & his mother Wanda Palmer about the members of the Battalion & the four women who went the entire March. It was shown Oct 9 (Phebe's 200th birthday) l0th & 11th, l998, with Brigham Young, the officer, the mustering in of the men, the boys, Zemira age 14 with other young orderlies, even the drummer boy. The story of Preston Palmer who with his gdparents, A.Z. & Alzada Kartchner Palmer of Arizona, visit at Orderville, Kane, Utah, with Sally Knight Palmer, Zemira's wife, who tells Preston of Zemira's life, and death. It was excellently done & should be a Church wide production of that part of CHURCH History made by the Mormon BATTALION.
