Autobiography Pt 12

Colaborador: toooldtohunt Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Places we have visited. Then in Oct. 21st Quentin was taken into the Service. Well that was the last straw! We had planned that Quentin would be with us in our old age to comfort and help us, but not so. After three years, in war service in the States, he went over seas for a short time and then came home with his family to make us a visit. He was here a week or so, and we decided to take them back to California. So we all got into the dodge and away we went. Stopped at Burley here they were to live visited all over San Francisco and Oakland, then on to Modesto to visit sister Delores and family. We had a wonderful visit, then came back. We brought Rhoda and Burns back to Salt Lake to be married in the Temple. We also brought Mrs. Magelby. They were married May 2nd, 1945 in Manti. We came home rested up then took Allen and Lula and started out for Southern Utah. Went to Bryce, Zions Canyon, Sulphur Spring at Hurricane, also relatives lived there. We went to St. George and stayed all night at Ruth Giles. Went to the Temple twice. Came back by Harmony stayed there that night, came to Cedar , stayed with Iseral Neilsson all night, came to Beaver my old home town and took pictures of same. We went to Delta to see Aunt Julia, visited her sons and daughters and came home happy for the trip and privilege I had had. On the 24th of September, Dad and I started out for Canada to visit my sister Minnie whom I had not seen for seven years. Our trip was wonderful. Everything was new and different. All the folks were so grand to us, they took us up to Banff in the Canadian rockies, traveld by train, ate for the first time in a diner on the train. We stayed at Nola's on the way back then to Provo to see our new grandson Michael, and found out that our darling was blind, I'll tell you I was broken hearted. I have visited the Florence Cemetary in Nebraska, visited the graves of Oliver Cowdery, David Harris (Whitmer) at Far West Missouri, visited largest caves in the world at Carlsbad Mexico, Boulder Dam, State Capital in Sacramento, Colorado, Kansas, Iowa, Mexico. Viola, Brig, Dad and I went to Pima in Arizona for a visit that was nice. We have made two trips to California in the last two years. this last time we visited Harmony Hills, where Quentin is making his home. Also Zula's parents at Sabastapol. We saw the Sing Sing Prison and crossed the Ferry on ta large boat. Have been in Idaho, Montana, Calgaria and Lethbridge. The hardest blows I have had, in the deaths of my two find sons, who left a wife and a baby each, and a fine grandson Emil, who was killed on a motorcycle. My children are my riches and all I can ever take with me when I leave this earth. May they all prove faithful and while am here I am truly happy when I see them doing right. God grant that each and everyone of you our dear children will live so that when the end comes yu can say, "I have done the best I could." Your Dear Mother. Complied about 1945.

Life timeline of Brigham Rees

1892
Brigham Rees was born on 30 Aug 1892
Brigham Rees was 11 years old when The Wright brothers make their first attempt to fly with the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were two American aviators, engineers, inventors, and aviation pioneers who are generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world's first successful airplane. They made the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft on December 17, 1903, four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In 1904–05 the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible.
Brigham Rees was 20 years old when The British passenger liner RMS Titanic sinks in the North Atlantic at 2:20 a.m., two hours and forty minutes after hitting an iceberg. Only 710 of 2,227 passengers and crew on board survive. RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early hours of 15 April 1912, after colliding with an iceberg during its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. There were an estimated 2,224 passengers and crew aboard, and more than 1,500 died, making it one of the deadliest commercial peacetime maritime disasters in modern history. RMS Titanic was the largest ship afloat at the time it entered service and was the second of three Olympic-class ocean liners operated by the White Star Line. It was built by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast. Thomas Andrews, her architect, died in the disaster.
Brigham Rees was 37 years old when The New York Stock Exchange crashes in what will be called the Crash of '29 or "Black Tuesday", ending the Great Bull Market of the 1920s and beginning the Great Depression. The New York Stock Exchange, is an American stock exchange located at 11 Wall Street, Lower Manhattan, New York City, New York. It is by far the world's largest stock exchange by market capitalization of its listed companies at US$21.3 trillion as of June 2017. The average daily trading value was approximately US$169 billion in 2013. The NYSE trading floor is located at 11 Wall Street and is composed of 21 rooms used for the facilitation of trading. A fifth trading room, located at 30 Broad Street, was closed in February 2007. The main building and the 11 Wall Street building were designated National Historic Landmarks in 1978.
Brigham Rees was 47 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
Brigham Rees was 49 years old when World War II: The Imperial Japanese Navy made a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, intending to neutralize the United States Pacific Fleet from influencing the war Japan was planning to wage in Southeast Asia.

Brigham Rees was 65 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
Brigham Rees was 77 years old when During the Apollo 11 mission, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the Moon. Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that landed the first two people on the Moon. Mission commander Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin, both American, landed the lunar module Eagle on July 20, 1969, at 20:17 UTC. Armstrong became the first person to step onto the lunar surface six hours after landing on July 21 at 02:56:15 UTC; Aldrin joined him about 20 minutes later. They spent about two and a quarter hours together outside the spacecraft, and collected 47.5 pounds (21.5 kg) of lunar material to bring back to Earth. Michael Collins piloted the command module Columbia alone in lunar orbit while they were on the Moon's surface. Armstrong and Aldrin spent 21.5 hours on the lunar surface before rejoining Columbia in lunar orbit.
Brigham Rees died on 9 Mar 1971 at the age of 78
