    Please note that the picture you have on page 1 stating that it is of John & Susannah Hathaway is in fact my 2-G-Grandfather Benjamin Cazier and ??? someone I don’t know. Benjamin was one of the original founders of Ogden,UT, and his history & picture are in “Pioneers and Prominent Men of Utah” – Thank you for correcting this, Carol C. Reynolds – William & Pleasant Drake Cazier Family Organization.

  2. chashathaway says:

    Very good point, Carol! Thanks for pointing that out. I’m adding a disclaimer with the photo because you’re right, I’ve seen other places that photo is labeled as Benjamin Cazier.

  3. chashathaway says:

    I’ve looked closer into it, and that does indeed seem to be a picture of Susannah Ellen Clark and a photo of Benjamin Cazier. I’m just not sure how the photos got paired together. I’m looking further into it in case there was later marriage I’m not aware of or something, but the closest connection I can see for sure is that Susannah’s son, Daniel Webster Hathaway, had a daughter named Matilda, who was the wife of Benjamin Cazier Jr., son of the Benjamin Cazier in the photo.

  4. Kent Hathaway says:

    The picture you have marked as Susannah Ellen Clark is really Susannah and John Hathaway’s daughter, who had the same name as her mother. The lady in the picture married Tom Tanner. She and Tom lived in Salt Lake City for a number of years residing in the same Ward as Brigham Young. Then she and Tom moved to the Parker, Saint Anthony, Chester Idaho with some of her brothers. She and Tom settled in Parker. One of her brothers, my Great Grandfather, John Wesley Hathaway along with his brothers, Daniel Webster and Elisha Brown all helped settle the area around Chester, St. Anthony and Parker. Elisha Brown died while working in Tetonia, Idaho area and is buried in the Clawson-Cache cemetery just outside of Tetonia.

    Well there is a whole lot more to the story and we shared just a brief part when we talked last week, including a clarification on the post above about Benjamin Cazier.

    Look forward to talking to you again.

    Thanks, Kent and Jaelynne! I’d love to keep an ongoing conversation on this. I was talking with my dad the other day about John and Prince Hathaway, and I couldn’t remember the details about what you two told me. I remember that there were a lot of John Hathaway’s in the area, so it’s unclear which was ours, and I also remember that Prince isn’t in our line as many had assumed. I wish I’d tape recorded our conversation!

  6. Katherine Brown says:

    This is a lovely website, and has some good information. I am still searching for the parents of Michael Clark. I am not convinced that he is the son of Lamberton Clark of Connecticut. I am descended from John Hathaway and Susannah Ellen through their son, John Wesley. HIs son, Lionel Clifford is my grandfather.

    I am also VERY interested in the statement by chashathaway that Prince isn’t in our line. So, any ideas who John Hathaway’s father actually is???? Looks like the parentage of both John Hathaway AND Susannah Ellen Clark is still seriously in doubt, even after all these years.

  7. chashathaway says:

    Thanks, Katherine! The best one to talk to about the John/Prince Hathaway line is Kent Hathaway. He’s done extensive research and been up in the area, talked to a lot of people, and has probably done more research specific to that line than anyone else. Here’s a link to his Facebook profile, so you can message him if you want. He’s a great guy, and has some amazing information:

  8. chashathaway says:

    I also learned from Kent that the picture of John and Susannah really is John and Susannah, rather than John Cazier and Susannah, so I’m putting it back on the page.

  9. Carol C. Reynolds says:

    If there are further questions about the above picture of Benjamin Cazier, Sr. please contact Gail A. Cazier of Rexburg, ID – he has the original portraits of Benjamin Sr. & his wife Olive Lucy Shaw Cazier. They are a matched pair. He is also a descendant of Benjamin Sr’s son Benjamin Jr (grandson) who grew up and was one of the first settlers of the Twin Groves/St. Anthony area. In fact his farm and homestead was sold to the Fremont County Golf Course. I am descended (great granddaughter) from the oldest son, Fredrick Cazier. Our family organization has their histories, pictures, etc. which are being posted on the FamilySearch/FamilyTree. You can visit there for more. My understanding from Gail, and others, is that the portraits, along with those of John & Susannah were previously housed in the Hathaway home when they were living. They probably got mixed up when they were moved after their deaths.

  10. Thanks, Carol! I love all the communication we have about this, I’m learning so much!
