Colaborador: Lonniekay Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

by Della Cunnington Hooper (daughter-in-law) John Robinson Cunnington was born December 10, 1876 in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was the son of Minerva Melinda Higbee Cunnington. He had eight brothers and sisters. He attended grade school at Salt Lake City. In 1891 he and his brother Isaac or Pat, as he is known to us, attended the H.P.N. College in Iowa. After returning to Salt Lake, he met Elnora Wadsworth of Hooper, Utah. Later they married in the year of 1897. They lived in Salt Lake, where dad was engaged in the grocery and meat business. He was a good business man. They moved from Salt Lake to Hooper, where they lived a short time, before moving to Iona, Idaho. Then to Idaho Falls, where he worked as a Partsman for Smith's Chevrolet Company. He received a very high award for his work. He was the father of eight children: Bob, Allie, Lynn, Rue, Abbie, Archie, Leona, and Manuel. He also helped his good wife raise three children of his son, Bob's, until his marriage. He was always a happy-go-lucky fellow. He really enjoyed life and was a good sportsman. He loved to hunt and fish. He liked to read good books, and always had such a wonderful smile. He always made everyone welcome. His children and grandchildren all loved him. I have often heard him say (and cry a little while he was saying it), "I have the best looking grandchildren in the world. He joined the Church a short time before his death. He was one of the first to be baptized in the Idaho Falls Temple, by the President of the Temple. On January 29, 1947 he suffered a stroke and died in the Idaho Falls L.D.S. Hospital. He was a wonderful father-in-law. Source: Isaac Higbee and Sophia Somers Family Magazine 1958

History of Elnora Wadsworth

Colaborador: Lonniekay Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

(Written by a daughter-in-law) Elnora Wadsworth Cunnington Hunt was born in Hooper, Utah, May 31, 1878. She was the daughter of Joseph A. and Abigal Higley Wadsworth. There were thirteen children in her family. Also, eleven half brothers and sisters. She attended the Hooper grade schools. They did not have the conveniences we have today, but they had many happy days. When she was old enough to go to the dances and parties, they went with horse and buggy, or horse and cart, and sometimes by horseback. She was the bell of the town as they were called then. She loved to dance and took many prize Waltzes. She was a beautiful girl and always had a sweet smile, and a wonderful disposition. And she still has. She was married the year of 1897 to John Robinson Cunnington of Salt Lake City. They lived in Salt Lake for many years. Then they moved to Hooper for a short time. From there they moved to Iona, Idaho. I remember mother saying they told them it was God’s country, but she thought it was more like Hell’s country. The winters were so terrible. From there they moved to Idaho Falls, where she still lives. Dad died January 29, 1947. After two years, she married Warren Hunt. He died five years later. She now lives alone. She is always happy and never complains, no matter what. Everyone that ever knew her, loved her. I never ever heard her quarrel with anyone. Her children and her grandchildren all love her. She raised eight children of her own, and three of her son Robert’s. She was such a loving person, and always made the best of everything. She is a wonderful mother-in-law. I love her, and wish her many more years of life with good health and happiness. Children of John Robinson and Elnora Wadsworth Cunnington: 1. Joseph Alexander (Allie) Cunnington; married Matilda Jones, Hooper, Utah. 2. Robert Wadsworth (Bob) Cunnington; married Alice Rounds, California. 3. Lynn Cunnington 4.

John Robert Cunnington was 40 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
