  • Notes 
    • The History of the Church pg. 22 - Solomon Mack (II), the fourth son of Solomon (I), was born in the town of Gilsum, New Hampshire, where also he married. He was known as "Captain" Solomon Mack of Gilsum. He stayed close to his home town, traveling no farther than to Boston, to which city for some time his business called him about twice a year. But in the rocky hills of the old New Hampshire town, prosperity responded to his industry and business acumen, and he was held in honor by the local community in which he lived and died, surrounded by the dignity of a large family." (ibid, ch vi) (12) (footnote #12 - History of Town of Gilsum, N.H. "His father lived with him for some years. He was captain in the militia and served the town as select man." p. 207. Also History of the Prophet Joseph, Lucy Smith. chs. vii and ix.) With Lucy Mack added, of whom something has already been said, and more remains to say--such was the family that Solomon Mack maternal grandfather of Joseph Smith, the Prophet, gave to his country. This veteran soldier of two wars, the French and Indian War, and the War of the American Revolution--especially when it is remembered that in the latter war two of his sons fought by his side--may be pardoned the vanity of thinking that his life warranted the publication of a brief autobiography, even if, owing to an entire absence of opportunity for schooling in youth, the Narrative was faulty in literary style, imperfect in orthography and grammar, and included some "hymns" of doubtful poetic value. Both Riley and Linn think it worthwhile to speak sneeringly of the Old Soldier's Narrative see Founder of Mormonism, pp. 12-18; and Story of the Mormons, pp. 8, 9. The full title of this autobiograpahy is as follows: A Narrative of the Life of Soloman Mack, containing an Account of the many severe accidents he met with during a long series of years, together with the extra-ordinary manner in which he was converted to the Christian Faith. To which is added a number of "Hymns," composed on the death of several of his relations. Windsor: Printed at the expense of the author." --------------------------------- The History of Joseph Smith By His Mother - Chapter 7 My youngest brother, Solomon, was born and married in the town of Gilsum, state of New Hampshire, where he is still living; and although he is now very aged, he has never traveled farther than Boston, to which place his business leads him twice a year. He had gathered to himself in this rocky region, fields, flocks, and herds, which multiply and increase upon the mountains. He had been known at least twenty years as Captain Solomon Mack, of Gilsum; but as he lives to speak for himself, and as I have to do chiefly with the dead, and not the living, I shall leave him, hoping that, as he has lived peaceably with all men, he may die happily.
