A Raven Above Press’s “Welsh in the Old West” Project

Related Post: A Raven Above Press’s Welsh Saints Project and Work in Progress: Saint Tewdrig.

***

As you may recall, last year, I created an illustration of Saint Tewdrig for A Raven Above Press‘s collaborative title Age of Saints: An Illustrated Guide to the Saints of Wales by Peter Anthony Freeman. This year, I was once again invited by A Raven Above Press to contribute to their collaborative book Welsh in the Old West by Lorin Morgan-Richards.

Portrait of Elias Morris (Disclaimer: I do not own this image!)

This time, I will be illustrating a fellow named Elias Morris. Here is the description for the project’s Facebook event:

Elias Morris was a young stone mason in Wales, after serving his apprenticeship under the guidance of his father, hired himself out to the contractor of the Conway Castle and the Conway Bridge. This work completed, he went to Liverpool to gain a wider experience in his trade. Upon returning to Wales a year or so later to visit his folks, he heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ, was converted, and soon started on the long journey to Zion. Reaching Council Bluffs in May, 1852, he met his betrothed, who had preceded him to this country. They were married and immediately started on their trip across the plains. At Independence Rock, Wyoming, the young stone mason had the first urge to ply his trade. He took his chisel from his bag and carved in everlasting letters: ELIAS MORRIS and his wife, MARY P. MORRIS. Hundreds of names are scratched upon that Register of the Desert—some still legible—but the expert carving of his name earned for him the title “first stone cutter of Utah.”
He became a famous tombstone maker which more is written about he and his company.
