Thomas Carlos Emmett was born to Moses Simpson Emmett and Catherine Dorcas Overton, he was 5th of 7 children.He md Lucy Philena Canfield, 13 Oct 1873 they were sealed in the Endowment house in Salt Lake City. They had 5 children.Don Thomas, David Carlos CARL, Olive Philena, Elsie, Alice Lillian.
They moved their family to Kanab,Kane,Utah. In 1883 He went on a business trip to Arizona and Mexico. Shortly thereafter they received word he was sick in Pheonix with smallpox. A short time later his saddle and silver spurs were sent home. He had died of smallpox in Pheonix. Lucys family came and moved her back home to Enterprise where she had the love and support she needed to raise her family.She Later married John Day Sr.
There are many unsubstantiated rumors that still persist even after 125 years. I have letters, life stories, and 1st hand accounts of what happened to Thomas. My great grandfather,Don Thomas Emett, his son told others to ignore what people say,we know what is true. We are told by the authorities to not gossip. It is sad 125 years later people can't wait to tell me how bad my great-great grandfather was.If he did do wrong by his family let the Lord take care of it. It is the Savior he will have to answer to not you or I. Unless you have good proof please do not email me about this subject.

The photo I had attached to this memorial of Thomas Carlos has been proved to NOT be him but possibly his son David Carlos Emett. The photo attached now is Thomas standing and Moses and James sitting.
