hankful Lucy Pine was the seventh child and the third and final daughter born to Joseph and Delia Pine on Nov 4, 1831 while the family lived in Stockholm, St. Lawrence County, New York.(1,2) Stockholm is located not far from the St. Lawrence River in Upstate New York, north of the Adirondack Mountains and near the U.S./Canadian border.
Joseph Pine, born July 11, 1785 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts, and Delia Winn (a.k.a. Adelia Ann Sparrow) of Lansingburg, Albany County, New York (now Troy, Rensselaer County, New York), were the parents of eight children (3)
(1) Delia Fanny, born 1815 of Balston Spa, Saratoga County, New York (4)
(2) George, born 1817 of Balston Spa (5)
(3) Jane Eliza, born August 7, 1818 in Balston Spa; died November 28, 1913 (6)
(4) Dudley, born June 17, 1821 in Balston Spa; died October 28, 1877(7)
(5) Myron, born 1823 in Stockholm, St. Lawrence County, New York; died 1844 (8)
(6) Samuel Cook, Senior, born July 30,1825 in Stockholm; died January 16, 1897 in San Bernardino County, California) (9)
(7) Thankful Lucy (10)
(8) John, born 6 November 1833 in Stockholm, died October 9, 1900 (11)
Her father, Joseph Pine, baptized Thankful Lucy into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on August 24, 1846. (12,13)
Joseph Pine was endowed in the original Nauvoo Temple in the year 1846. (14) Research conducted up to the time of preparing this document has not yet revealed how long the family lived in Nauvoo, Illinois before immigrating with Brigham Young and the main body of Latter-day Saints to the basin of the Great Salt Lake in what is now known as the State of Utah. The Pine/Winn family lived Boston, Suffolk County, Massachussetts; Troy, Renssalaer County, New York; Boston Spa, Saratoga County, New York; Nauvoo, Hancock County, Illinois, eventually immigrating westward with Brigham Young and the Mormon Pioneers, and settling such places as the communities of St. George and Pine Valley, Washington County, Utah, and San Bernardino, San Bernardino County, California.
Thankful’s major life events give us some glimpses into the trials and hardships she was called to endure, along with demonstrated faith and devotion she expressed in giving service to family, friends, and strangers, which we believe was all brought about because of her testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ and her desire to build up the kingdom of God on the earth she knew to be embodied in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Thankful’s first opportunity for marriage came sometime after her family’s arrival in what eventually became the known as the Territory of Utah. At around twenty years of age, Thankful met, was courted by, and eventually married the recently widowed Orren (or Orin) Packard. Orren, the son of Noah and Sophia (15) Packard, had originally been married to Miss Matilda Stowell. Thankful Lucy became Orren’s second wife-their marriage solemnized in Springville, Utah County, Territory of Utah, by President Asahel Perry. The first and only child to be born of this union entered mortality on September1,1852 and was named Joseph Dudley Packard (16,17) This child’s given names could have been selected by Thankful in tribute to her father, Joseph Pine, and her brother, Dudley Pine.
