Konrad Seubert1

b. 10 March 1832, d. date unknown
     Konrad Seubert was born on 10 March 1832 in Tuechersfeld, Oberfr., Bavaria.2 He was the son of Conrad Seubert and Barbara Schruefer.2 Konrad Seubert married Carolina Hertkorn, daughter of Johann Georg Hertkorn and Crescenzia Albus, circa 1853 in Muhringen, Horb, Wuerttemberg, Germany.2 His death date has not been found.
     Konrad was also known as Conrad Siepert.

Lee Ward, after extensive research on this family, has concluded that Konrad Seubert (Siepert) was a fictitious person, invented to prevent scandal. He believes that Carolina Hertkorn was a housemaid in the household of Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany and had four children out of wedlock to someone in that family. Mr. Ward bases this conclusion on the lack of documentation of any events in Konrad's life, the ages of his "parents" and the age gap to the next oldest of his "siblings." Konrad seems to exisit only in the LDS records.3

He died of a strangulated hernia.9,1,10 He was buried on 12 February 1902 in Salt Lake City Cemetery, Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Utah.10,11
     He immigrated in 1821 arriving in Canada with his parents Robert Gardner and Margaret Calender.
Annie Gardner Francis wrote: "My father, Archibald Gardner, came to Utah in 1847. He, with his older brother William, took up farms in Cottonwood. They worked together and each fall divided equally all the produce from their farms. The year in which the "gold-seekers" were going to California was exceptionally poor; very little was raised. They lived by the road on which the gold-seekers traveled, and Father gave aid and food to all; he could never turn one person away hungry. Wagons were passing by the home every day, and Father helped someone each day. Uncle William thought that Father was much too liberal and predicted that he would be in need himself before the next harvest came. He said, "Now Archibald, don't come to me for flour when you've given all of yours away, for you will not get any."
My father's first wife, Aunt Margaret, who, my mother said, was more like an angel than any one she knew, told me that every time she went to the bin to get flour to mix her bread she thought there would be only another mixing or two, but it seemed that the flour miraculously increased. Aunt Margaret said she knew that the Lord increased the flour because of Father's goodness of heart and his willingness to share with all who were in need. And sad to say, it was Uncle William who had to come to Father to get flour before the harvest time came."12
Archibald lead a company of migrants to Utah in 1847. Included in his group were Mary Ann Bradford, Abigail Sprague, Pleasant Sprague Bradford, Rawsel Bradford, Sylvester Bradford, Tryphenia Bradford, Jane McCuen, Margaret Calender, Neil Gardner, Robert Gardner, Hezekiah Sprague, Robert Gardner, Robert R. Gardner, Margaret Gardner, William Gardner, William Gardner, Janet Livingston, Margaret Livingston and Neil Livingston Gardner.13

James H. Gardner wrote: "Archibald Gardner was a pioneer of 1847, arriving in Salt Lake City on October 6th. Born in Kilsythe, 12 miles east of Glasgow, Scotland, September 2, 1814, he moved with his family to Canada when a lad, settling in the backwoods. He continued to live with his parents, grew to be an expert axman, and took large contracts to furnish hewn timbers to shipbuilders, and later with little money, but plenty of determination, he undertook to build a gristmill as one was sorely needed in Warwick. He was his own engineer, carpenter, and builder.

Mill No. 2, a gristmill, was built at Enniskillen, Western District, Canada, about 25 miles from the first mill. A sawmill was attached to this mill. Both mills and 200 acres of land were valued at $12,000, but after Archibald Gardner joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the family was compelled to leave Canada.

Mill No. 1—Immediately upon entering Salt Lake Valley in 1847, a new start in mill building was made when in the winter of 1847–48 the Gardners built a temporary sawmill at the Warm Springs north of Salt Lake City. In the spring of 1848 they obtained a permit issued by the High Council to leave the Fort. No. 2. They took the newly constructed sawmill and all their possessions and moved to Millcreek. There on the stream they placed the mill, constructed a millrace and other facilities for permanent establishment of a home and a flour mill. This mill was completed in time to operate for the first harvest in Utah in 1848.

No. 3, a sawmill, was operated successfully for several years but finally as the valley became settled it was decided that water was more essential for farming and that water power rights must not interfere with agriculture, so it was moved up the stream into the mountains.


No. 4 was built in 1853 at West Jordan. The Gardner Brothers began to expand their business and in the winter of 1849–50 built a sawmill and later a flour mill at West Jordan, near the Jordan River. A millrace 2 1/2 miles long, with a dam in Jordan River costing $5,000, had to be constructed and all was hand labor. They had the saw in operation in 1850.

No. 5 was located on the Big Cottonwood stream on the State Road in 1857. This mill was built entirely by Archibald as his brother, Robert, had been called on a mission to Canada. Robert's half of Mill No. 5 was purchased by Brigham Young, and later was sold to James Gordon and Sons.

No. 6, the Miller Mill, built in 1866, was located on what is now 9th East and 48th South. Water right for this mill was the spring run, a permanent stream of water from springs. Archibald sent to Chicago for an up-to-date French burr or millstone costing him over $1,500 delivered to the millsite. These were said to be the first factory-made French burrs brought to Utah. This mill was sold to Reuben Miller and Sons and then to Progressive Company of Murray, then to Salt Lake City.

No. 7 was built in 1872, Pleasant Grove's first flour mill and was a welcome asset to the community. All mills up to this time were built without nails; mortices and pine being used, and hardly a quiver could be detected when the mill was in operation, because they were built so strong. The writer, a son, had occasion to assist in tearing down one of these old mills, a very early type. It looked easy, but when we started it brought a broad smile from the one who built. We were called together for explanation. It was necessary to start at the key corner where the last brace of the building was located, and when that was found, all was easy.

No. 8, built at Spanish Fork in 1858, was an old type mill. One of the homemade millstones has been preserved by the family.

No. 9 was the remodeling of the West Jordan Mill in 1877 and making it into a modern mill.

No. 10 at Fairfield, Utah, which at that time was Camp Floyd, but previously had been headquarters for Johnston's Army.

No. 11 in Taylorsville in 1880, sold to the Bennions in 1885. It was an up-to-date flour mill with water power from the Jordan River.

No. 12 in Star Valley, Wyoming, built in 1889. A desired asset to Star Valley.

No. 13 is the last mill, erected at South Jordan in 1905. The mill was modern.

Archibald Gardner built a great many mills during his life, which included saw, shingle, flour, and woolen mills. While he was a real miller and had years of practice, his greater pleasure was to build rather than to operate. He told me one time that the happiest time of his life was when he could pick up his ax, the only tool indispensable to mill building, and start a new mill. He located and recorded some of the largest water rights in Utah, which are now in use. Others profited by his community thoughtfulness and planning. His great desire was to build up the country and he would sell or almost give away a mill to get to build another one."12

Their children George Delos, Joseph Smith, Ellen Jeannette, Brigham Ozro and Wallace Ward were listed as living with them. Another wife, Mary Larsen and their children Andrew Bruce, Clarence and Earnest Adelbert were also in the household, along with two unidentifed children (Albert and Archibald), most likely grand-sons.18 Archibald Gardner appeared on the 1900 Federal census of West Jordan, in Salt Lake County, Utah, in the household of his son Reuben Gardner.19

Biography from the LDS Biographical Encyclopedia: Gardner, Archibald, second Bishop of the West Jordan Ward, Salt Lake county, Utah, was born Sept. 2, 1814, in Kilsyth, Sterlingshire, Scotland, the son of Robert Gardner and Margaret Calinder. When Archibald was nine years of age, his parents moved to Canada, he of course accompanying them. In 1839 (Feb. 19th) he married Miss Margaret Livingston, and in the spring of 1845 he was baptized into the "Mormon" Church with nearly every member of his family. The same year he moved to Nauvoo, Ill, in company with his father, brothers, one sister and their families, 24 souls in all. He reached the illfated city just as the Saints were being expelled from their homes, so he went with his relatives across the river and settled temporarily at Winter Quarters in the latter part of 1846. Remaining there all winter (1846-47), the Gardner's prepared their outfits in the spring, and in June, 1847, they joined Bishop Edward Hunter's hundred and Joseph Home's fifty and set out for Salt Lake Valley, arriving there Oct. 1, 1847. The following spring Bro. Gardner moved to Mill Creek, where he lived for ten years. At the time of the move south in 1858 Bro. Gardner took his family to Spanish Fork, Utah county, but he was not permitted to remain there long, as he was called to be Bishop of the West Jordan Ward. Being a man of sterling worth, he held that position with credit for 32 years. While in the East he had learned the trade of mill-building, and after coming to the West he followed that vocation and erected some of the first mills in Utah, two of them being in Mill Creek. In 1880 he was elected a member of the territorial legislature, and was an intelligent and able member of that body. A few years later he moved to Star Valley, in Wyoming, and did an immense amount of good in assisting to build up that country. A few years before his death he returned to West Jordan and lived the remainder of his life in the bosom of his family Bishop Gardner was the father of 48 children and had 201 grandchildren and 34 great- grandchildren when he died. During his useful life he built 36 mills; some of these he erected in Canada before he had reached the age of twenty. The last one he built at Spanish Fork when he was 85 years of age. Despite his venerable age, he never outlived his usefulness, having ever been one of the most valuable members of the community. He was a typical pioneer possessing to a large degree the wisdom, courage and industry that are essential in the founding of a commonwealth. The impress of his strong and rugged character had been made upon the State and time can never efface it. His was a large and generous heart and planning something for the public good was, with him, a passion. He was the principal promoter of the Jordan canal system, which made homes for hundreds of people. He died at St. Mark's Hospital, Salt Lake City, as an ordained Patriarch in the Church Feb. 8, 1902, of a strangulated hernia. It is a fact of more than passing interest that Bishop Gardner died almost on the very spot where he spent his first winter in Great Salt Lake Valley.20
