Yesterday’s answer:
B.   They were to non-members
From the life of Rebecca Neibaur Nibley:   Rebecca was present and stood near Pres. Brigham Young when he drove the last spike in the Utah Central Railroad in Salt Lake City, Jan. 10, 1870, she being in the capital on a visit from Brigham City. The girl was assisting her sister, Mrs. Morris Rosenbaum, at Brigham City, in the large boarding house which that thrifty Hebrew, Mr. Rosenbaum, kept for the men who were engaged in the final work on the railroads. There sat the men at boarding table such men as Collis P. Huntingdon, O. J. Salisbury, Col. Grey, Col. Hurd, with Governor Leland Stanford, and many others not so well known, but of local repute. The merry-voiced girl was popular with all the boarders, and on one occasion she received an offer of marriage, which was repeated at sundry and several occasions from one of the men just mentioned. But “Beck” Neibuar was a “Mormon,” first, last, and all the time. Her suitors offered her gold, houses, residence away from her people, etc., upon which the girl arose to her small height and announced her loyalty to her father, her faith, and her people. She was not again molested on that point. But Governor Stanford has marked well the swift-footed, capable, careful, baby-loving, prudent girl, and he entreated her on numerous occasions to accept a position in his family as companion to his children. He too painted rosy pictures of life away from her people and in the great world west of the Valley, but “Beck” had built her house upon the rock; and when the winds came and the storms of entreaty tried to batter down her citadel, her rooftree never shock, her knees never faltered. It might be threats, it might be coaxing, but the girl simply tossed them all aside as things of no moment. She was a “Mormon,” and she would marry one of her own people or no one. And when she was rallied by Gov. Stanford on the possibility of being the wife of a man who would take other wives, she answered decisively, “Sir, I would not marry a man who had not the courage of his convictions, and who would not enter into that celestial order of marriage.”
