Autobiography Pt 6

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

Courtship with Levi and marriage. Our home was finally finished and not long after we moved in, the dread disease Diptheria broke out in the home of Pete Christensen, George Chappell and Jeddie Taylor. Everyone was frightened to death. I think it was caused from the creeks and ditches, for people and animals drank from the same. One day Hugh J. McClennan came and ask me and my mother if I could go help the Taylor family as they had so many children. We decided that I could and he said "I'll pay you." I did just that and I was blessed. I never took the disease nor was I sick a moment. I was there when three died, two in one night. Six died out of three families. It was while I was working there that I met Levi A Taylor and our courtship commenced. I was going home when he offered to take me home in his sleigh. I got in on one side and he on the other, just as far apart as possible. When we arrived at my house, I, to be polite, asked him in, he accepted and when inside I asked for his hat, low and behold, it was a big cowboy hat with a buckskin string. He sorta hesitated but finally gave it to me string and all. He only stayed a short time, but we went together from then on; The summer I was 16 I lived with my family on Johnson Flat, where the Reservoir is now. We made cheese that summer, I milked from 10 to 12 cows twice a day. After the cheese was cured we would take it to Dixie and trade it for fruit and factory goods to be made into clothes. One afternoon I was sitting in the shade of our log cabin. I seemed to be looking south up the draw that would take one toward Loa. I saw a man come into sight and as he drew closer it proved to be Levi Taylor on his favorite horse, a grey one named old Hank. He had come to spend the evening and we did so sitting around a smudge pot made from dry manure. On Oct 28u, 1890 we were married by Willis E. Robinson, President of Wayne Stake. When Levi came that morning with his family in the old wagon I found myself peeking out to see how he looked. He did have on a white shirt, the first I had ever seen him wear. We had a fine time that day with a fine dinner and when it was over, the dance and I just went with the family and lived there like one of them. He father died in Dec. and on Jan. 14, 1891 we were married in the Manti Temple by Daniel H Wells. My wedding dress was a very nice pale blue serge trimmed with silk lace and blue ribbon bows. A full skirt line with buchram about 4 inches wide around the bottom of the skirt, a bask with high neck and long sleeves. Our wedding dance was in the same little old log school house that was here when we came. The music was by Mene Burns and Sons Orchestra and we paid out the big sum of $2.00

Autobiography Pt 9

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

Balance of children and Levi's mission. It was a lovely day Aug. 18 1897 when Arletta May was born, just two days before Dalton Okerlund. She was a very plesant child when she was 4 years 1 month 1 day old she died with typhoid pneumonia. Oh how hard it was to give up our little darling, that was our first trial in our family, but the Lord's will be done. Loa Arintha was born one morning May 9, 1899, while her father was herding sheep on Parker Mountain. We sent a runner after him but Loa was 10 hours old before he arrived. She was our first red head, it was very pretty, mother thought it looked like spun gold, but other people said, "It's a red head," which wasn't very complimentary in those days. Feb 21, 1901, Leonard was born, from then every one and half years, I had a boy until I had five. Owen Elton Taylor, born 21 Nov. 1902 at Loa. Rulon Wayne Taylor, born 9 Jan, 1905 at Loa Allen Merlin Taylor born 6 March 1906 at Loa Thaine Taylor born 19 Jan. 1908 at Loa When Thaine was 9 months old dad left for his mission to California. That left me with ten children to care for, a 40 acre field to look after, and raise money to keep him on his mission. None of the boys were big enough to do much except Alford, who was 14. Many mornings I have come from feeding cattle with my clothes frozen to my knees. Then to get the money for dad was another worry. well he had the mission. I had the work, and felt that to care for ten children and everything else it was a hard mission for me. But, we were blessed and dad filled his mission and sent for me to come down. I went and had a lovely time with missionaries and friends. I met dad in Sacremento and we went to San Francisco by boat, sure a treat, we went on deck and ate lunch there with about 8 or ten in the company. When we arrived there we went to Mission Headquarters Also to Almeda to visit some Saints and Elders. We attended the Conference and had a wonderful Spiritual Feast. After which we returned home and found all well and happy until bedtime. I got my baby, Thaine then 2 years old ready for bed. He had always slept with me as dad left him when he was just crawling on the floor so he and I went to bed. In a short time dad came in and got in bed, and did that child get out. Over me he went and up stairs to his brothers he went, he said, "a man," and would never sleep with his dad and me. Stanford was born Flag Day June 14, 1911 and was named for the Stanford University of California where his dad had filled a mission, he should have been an educator. In two years, Aug. 24, 1913, Nola was born. It had been 14 years since we had had a girl, as Loa was 14 years old and still the baby girl. The boys were very pleased with that new sister, and in 1 1/2 years Norma came in on the scene. They were surely like twins and did enjoy them selves together as they grew older. All went well until Quentin came. I suffered so before he got here. I could walk only with the help of a stick or by clinging to the chairs or table. I had never been so helpless before, but then 14 children sorta takes the starch o out of one. When he was born he was such a sweet fat baby I felt well paid as all mothers do.

Autobiography Pt 12

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.

a Cautionary tale

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

I never met Ggrandpa Taylor as mom was pregnant with me when he died. I wanted to tell the family that there could have been a biological reason for his death. I obviously don't know this, but since this could happen to others in the family, I thought I owe it to you to tell you this. Years ago, a friend shared with me an article in Nexus magazine. It was about why some people should not be vegetarian. One of the reasons mentioned may apply here. People whose ancestors lived near the ocean for generations, slowly lost the ability to manufacture Seratonin in the brain as they got everything they needed in their diet with fish. When their descendants moved inland, this caused depression. I think this may explain why Heber J Grant was depressed his whole life and why he loved fish, as trout has a lot of Omega 3 fatty acids, that provide this for the body. I do know that my own grandparents on this side of the family suffered from depression, which included my grandmother, Loa, according to one of her sons, Larry, my beloved uncle. My grandfather, Harold, came from Denmark, so that could explain him. If this is an issue, for anyone you know, FRESH omega three capsules or Flax seed or its oil can do wonders to alleviate this condition. An Addendum: Depression isn't the only manifestation of this. My own family either has or currently suffers from Migraines, night terrors and sleep walking. When I was a kid, suffering from epilepsy, the neurologist quizzed my mom and she told him the family suffers from all of these maladies. HE said that this was all related to what was transpiring with me. I believe this as my kid sister Faun stopped sleep walking when she started taking pre-natal vitamins.

Loa Childhood Pt 1 Transcript

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

This is a transcript of Loa Arintha Taylor's audio file about her childhood. My father was, and sent him in. When my mother saw my golden hair I'm sure she was shocked and disappointed. But that term "red hair" was almost a shame. I grew up disliking it, but later in life, girls begin to color their hair red, so I was in style then. I was the fifth child out of 14 children, 8 boys and 6 girls. Once while a small girl, I went to the Loa Co-op store for something. And there was a big man standing there. Perhaps he thought I looked worse, so he handed me a nickle. I was so happy and I thought he was the best man in the world. It was George Chappell, Jack's grandpa. Once i was given a nickle on the 4th of July. Fred Brown's mother made ice cream to sell, so I started to run across the street where she was selling it and my petticoat fell. I hurried and picked it up, put it under my arm and ran for my ice cream. What a treat to have ice cream! We girls in my family, had one new dress for Christmas and July the 4th. The material is what they called calico, which is just cotton prints now. When we were small, we went barefooted a lot or sometimes mother would make us moccasins from the old denim pants that was worn out by the men. Our feet got so tough we could just run in the rocks or any place. We used to walk in puddles of water after a rain and let the mud squeeze through our toes. We would pick up polliwogs and tadpoles. A ... Our dad used to get us all around him and as many as could sit on his lap and around on the floor. He would sing funny songs to us and we could hear them over and over and he sounded so good. And he could sure pinch our skin with his toes! He used to have a pole fence all around our lot and we would try to walk all the way without falling. Nowadays, we would be afraid to death that some of our children would fall and break an arm or leg. Once a year, dad would take us in a covered wagon. It would be our vacation time, to Fish Lake and we would pick wild raspberries by the buckets. There were so much tasty to the ones we grow now. Then dad would catch fish in Twin Creeks. They were so thick there and he would bring them home and salt and smoke them and put them in a barrel. They were really delicious. Er... Sometimes when we had company come to our home, and they would stay all night, they would need a bed, so I would have what we called a pallet. Its a quilt that (was) folded and put on the floor, and that's what I would sleep on. To me that seemed quite a treat. One night I was left at home to tend the baby while the folks had gone to a dance. The other children had all gone to bed upstairs and I was in mother's bed. I had a coal oil lamp on a small table, sitting by the bed. Then one night a knock came on the door and I was so scared, but I asked who it was, and no one answered. And they knocked again and I asked again, but no response. I was so scared by now I crawled under the little table and I heard the door open and someone came to the middle door in the room where I was sleeping and there stood my oldest brother Alford. He didn't do that again! I used to have (to) go out and help dad build a grain stack. I had to throw bundles across a large wide stack to dad while he placed them where he wanted them. It was hard work. When there were nine of us at home, dad was called upon a two year mission to California. One fall, he was gone, while he was gone, we had the grain all shocked in the fields. It rained so long the bundles sprouted together, but we were blessed and got along fine. Once while I was sitting out under the trees at home, peeling apples, all by myself, a snake dropped into my lap. It nearly scared me to death. I have such a fear of snakes, anyway. And on the porch aways from me stood Viola. She had tossed it in my lap I seemed they all liked to scare me so. I told her I could kill her! I was so scared and upset.
