Richard and Mary Goble Pay Cabin

  • Built in Leamington, Utah 1880
  • Relocated in 2001

Both Richard Pay and Mary Goble were members of the 1856 Hunt wagon train, which accompanied the Martin and Willie Handcart groups. On the trail west, Richard Pay's previous wife and baby died, while Mary Goble's mother, two sisters and brother died. Mary Goble herself suffered severe frostbite on her feet. In 1859, 16-year-old Mary Goble married Richard Pay and they settled in Nephi. The couple moved to Leamington in about 1880 and built this log cabin. The Pays and seven of their children lived here for several years before moving into a two-story home.
