LIFE SKETCH OF LOWELL SAMUEL CROSSLEY - 26 AUGUST 1987 GIVEN BY DON J. JOHNSON (GRANDSON) AT THE FUNERAL SERVICES IN SMITHFIELD, UTAH LOWELL SAMUEL CROSSLEY WAS BORN ON A HOT JULY DAY - JULY 31 1905 AT SHARON, BEAR LAKE, IDAHO TO DENNIS GEORGE AND PEARL YOUNG CROSSLEY. HE WAS BORN IN A TWO ROOM HOME BUILT BY HIS GRANDFATHER YOUNG. THE MID-WIFE WAS MARY EDWARDS GRANDMA CROSSLEY'S GRANDMOTHER. HE WAS NAMED AFTER SAMUEL HALL, HIS GRANDMOTHER KAZIAH HALL'S BROTHER WHO HAD DROWN. GRANDPA WAS THE OLDEST IN THE FAMILY OF 11. HE WAS FOLLOWED BY 4 SISTERS AND 6 BROTHERS IN THE FOLLOWING ORDER - KAZIAH, GEORGE, ELWORTH, RILEY, PEARL, LORENZO, WENDELL, DARREL, ADELIA, . AND MARLENE. IN 1909, AT THE AGE OF FOUR HE MADE HIS FIRST TRIP. THE FAMILY MOVED FROM SHARON IDAHO TO AFTON WYOMING WHERE HIS FATHER OPERATED A FREIGHT LINE FROM AFTON TO MONTPELIER IDAHO FOR NEILD STRING. TIMES WERE HARD AND MONEY WAS SCARCE. THERE WAS ALWAYS PLENTY OF HARD WORK AND SACRIFICE. GRANDPA HELPED HIS FATHER HERD SHEEP AS A YOUNG LAD. HE LEARNED THE VALUE OF WORK EARLY IN HIS CHILDHOOD. THE FAMILY GREW-UP WHERE THE ONLY FORM OF ENTERTAINMENT WAS MADE AT HOME. LONG WINTER EVENINGS WERE SPENT AROUND THE KITCHEN TABLE, COVERED WITH A BRIGHT OILCLOTH UPON WHICH FLOWED THE FLAME OF A COAL OIL LAMP. AROUND THE TABLE GAMES WERE PLAYED, SONGS WERE SUNG, STORIES READ, AND LESSONS STUDIED. AN OCCASSIONAL WARD DANCE OR PARTY WAS A WELCOME VARIATION IN THEIR SOCIAL LIFE. HOMEMADE ICE CREAM PARTIES WERE A FAVORITE. A FORMAL EDUCATION WAS NOT CONSIDERED TOO IMPORTANT MORE STRESS WAS PLACED UPON SURVIVAL. FAMILIES WERE UNITED AND HAPPY. THE CARE OF THE YOUNGER CHILDREN WAS DELEGATED TO THE OLDER CHILDREN. AS SOON AS ONE WAS OLD ENOUGH TO WORK HE WAS EXPECTED TO DO HIS SHARE TOWARDS PROVIDING FOR THE REST OF THE FAMILY. GRANDPA, BEING THE OLDEST LEARNED VERY QUICKLY TO SHOULDER THESE RESPONSIBILITIES WHILE THE YOUNGER ONES PLAYED. GRANDPA MET GRANDMA AT A DANCE AT THE SHARON WARD CHAPEL. AT THE TIME HE WAS WORKING FOR UNCLE TOM SMITH. GRANDMA WAS THE LAST GIRL IN THE WARD TO MEET AND DANCE WITH HIM THAT NIGHT. BUT THE FIRST TO BE TAKEN HOME BY HIM. HE WAS AN EXCELLENT DANCER. THE WALTZ AND THE TWO-STEP WERE HIS FAVORITES. IT WAS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT AND FROM THEN ON IT WAS MORE AND MORE DANCES, HORSE- BACK RIDING. AND JUST SITTING IN THEIR FOLK'S PORCH SWING AND TALKING. AFTER THE WORK WAS DONE IN THE FALL GRANDPA WENT HOME TO AFTON. HE STILL. HOWEVER, HAD A STRONG DESIRE TO SEE GRANDMA, SO HE RODE THE 40+ MILES ON HORSE-BACK BACK TO SHARON TO COURT HER. THEY WERE MARRIED FOR TIME AND ALL ETERNITY IN THE LOGAN TEMPLE ON MARCH 9,1927. TO GET TO LOGAN FOR THIS SPECIAL DAY THEY WENT FROM LIBERTY TO OVID IN A SLEIGH, THEN TOOK THE TRAIN TO LOGAN AND STAYED AT CHARLES AND RUTH'S HOME. GRANDMA WORE AUNT RUTH'S HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION DRESS TO THE TEMPLE. AFTER THE WEDDING UNCLE CHARLES AND AUNT RUTH BOUGHT GRANDMA A BLACK SILK DRESS FOR A WEDDING PRESENT. IT WAS THE DEPRESSION AND WORK WAS SCARCE. SO WITH THE PROMISE OF EMPLOYMENT IN CALIFORNIA, HELP OF PARENTS, FAITH AND COURAGE, THEY BOARDED THE BUS FOR LOS ANGELES. TO THEIR DISAPPOINTMENT THE WORK WAS NOT THERE AS PROMISED. SO GRANDPA WORKED AS A MULE SKINNER AND LAID TILE TO GET ENOUGH MONEY TO COME BACK TO POCATELLO, IDAHO FOR ANOTHER JOB OPPORTUNITY AT ROWLANDS DAIRY. HERE THEIR FIRST CHILD, A BABY GIRL. MARY PEARL WAS BORN ON DECEMBER 22,1927. SHE WAS NAMED AFTER BOTH GRANDMOTHERS. WORK AT ROWLANDS DAIRY RAN OUT SO THEY MOVED TO A FARM IN SMOOT, WYOMING. HERE THEIR SECOND DAUGHTER. LOIS, WAS BORN ON SEPTEMBER 1, 1929. THEY LIVED N SMOOT ONLY A SHORT TIME WHEN THE OWNER SOLD HIS FARM FORCING THEM TO AGAIN SEEK OTHER EMPLOYMENT. THE RAILROAD WAS HIRING IN POCATELLO, SO THEY MOVED BACK TO POCATELLO. IT WAS HERE THAT THEY KNEW GREAT SORROW WITH THE LOSS OF THEIR FIRST SON, LOWELL, ON MAY 5, 1933. HE LIVED BUT A FEW MOMENTS TO FILL HIS EARTHLY MISSION TO GAIN A BODY AND THEN RETURNED TO HIS HEAVENLY FATHER. THEY GAINED PERMISSION TO BURY HIM IN THE BACK YARD IN A HANDMADE WOODEN BOX UNTIL GRANDMA WAS WELL ENOUGH TO TRAVEL TO LIBERTY TO BURY HM WHERE MOST OF THE FAMILY LIVED. IT WAS NOT LONG WHEN THE RAILROAD BEGAN TO LAY MEN OFF. GRANDPA WAS AFFECTED BY THE LAY OFF, SO BACK TO SMOOT THEY WENT. HE WENT TO WORK FOR THE CANNING FAMILY ON A 40 ACRE RANCH. ON OCTOBER 31. 1934 THEY WERE BLESSED WITH ANOTHER SON, PERRY. TWO YEARS LATER. THEY WELCOMED THEIR THIRD DAUGHTER, ILA. JUNE 5. 1936. GRANDPA ALWAYS SOUGHT OPPORTUNITIES ANY WHERE HE COULD TO MAKE MONEY TO SUPPORT HIS FAMILY. RUEL CALL OFFERED HIM A JOB DRIVING A GAS TANKER TRUCK BETWEEN AFTON AND PARCO, WYOMING. DURING THIS TIME THE ARMY NEEDED FUEL. ON ONE OCCASION HE DROVE 48 HOURS WITH NO SLEEP TO DELIVER BADLY NEEDED FUEL. IT WAS IN AFTON THAT THEIR LAST DAUGHTER VEDA WAS BORN ON NOVEMBER 21, 1937. GRANDPA MOVED HIS FAMILY TO PARIS, IDAHO THREE YEARS LATER AND WORKED FOR HIS BROTHER-IN-LAW. DELWIN ORR IN A SAWMILL AND PUMPED GAS ON THE SIDE. HERE HE HAD AN ACCIDENT AND THREW HIS SHOULDER OUT OF PLACE. HE WAS RUSHED TO THE MONTPELIER HOSPITAL. THEY TOLD HIM THAT IT WOULD REQUIRE AN AIRPLANE TRACTION AND SIX WEEKS AWAY FROM WORK, PLUS $50.00 DOWN BEFORE THEY WOULD DO ANYTHING. GRANDPA WOULDN'T HEAR OF THAT SO HE WENT TO ANOTHER DOCTOR. DOCTOR GUERTNER GAVE HIM SOME ETHER, TOOK HIS ARM, PUT IT OVER HIS HEAD, MOVED IT AROUND ONCE, BROUGHT HIM OUT FROM THE ETHER, CHARGED HIM $5.00 AND TOLD HIM TO GO BACK TO WORK. IT NEVER BOTHERED HIM FROM THAT TIME ON. TO SUSTAIN HIS FAMILY THEY MADE MORE MOVES. GRANDMA USED TO SAY, "WE WERE SO USED TO MOVING THAT ALL OF THE BOXES AND THE TRUNK USED TO OPEN BY THEMSELVES WHEN GRANDPA SAID IT IS TIME TO MOVE." A CHICKEN FARM IN KANESVILLE, UTAH, A DAIRY FARM AT ELWOOD NEAR TREMONTON, UTAH. THEN TO SMITHFIELD, UTAH WERE ALL NEXT MOVES. HERE HE WORKED AT THE CLAYPOOL LUMBER YARD UNTIL ONE MORNING HE WOKE UP AND COULDN'T MOVE HIS LEGS. HE HAD RHUEMATROID ARTHRITIS. THIS CRIPPLING DISEASE PUT HIM IN A WHEELCHAIR FOR 8 MONTHS. DURING THIS TIME HE ALSO HAD HIS TONSILS REMOVED. THE DOCTOR TOLD THEM NO MORE OUTSIDE WORK. AT THIS POINT BISHOP FRANK TIDWELL CAME AND OFFERED THE POSITION OF CUSTODIAN OF THE SMITHFIELD 4TH WARD CHURCH AND STAKE CENTER. THIS POSITION HE ENJOYED FOR 20 1/2 YEARS UNTIL THEY ANSWERED THE CALL TO SERVE A MISSION FOR THE CHURCH TO SEASIDE. OREGON ON AUGUST 11, 1967. ALTHOUGH THEIR HEALTH WAS NOT THE BEST THEY WERE ABLE TO SERVE 8 MONTHS PRIOR TO THEIR HAVING TO RETURN HOME DUE TO GRANDMA'S HEALTH. GRANDPA HAD SO MANY WONDERFUL ATTRIBUTES AND QUALITIES - OUTSTANDING AND LOVING HUSBAND, FATHER AND GRANDFATHER, FAITHFUL. HARD-WORKING, COURAGEOUS, FULL OF HUMILITY, A SENSE OF HUMOR, LOVED PEOPLE AND LIFE, AND MOST OF ALL ENJOYED FISHING. AS A PERSONAL NOTE HE AND GRANDMA WERE THE BEST FISHING PARTNERS THAT I {DON} HAD WHILE I WAS GROWING UP. DURING THE FISHING SEASON, WHILE I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL, THERE WERE NOT TOO MANY WEEKS THAT WENT BY THAT WE DID NOT GO SOMEWHERE FISHING. GRANDPA AND GRANDMA WERE ALWAYS TOGETHER. hE NEVER WENT WITHOUT HER. HE BAITED THE HOOKS FOR HER, THREW THE LINE OUT, AND SHE ROLLED THE FISH IN - MANY TIMES TWO AT A TIME. TO THIS DAY ALL OF THE KNOWLEDGE THAT I HAVE ACQUIRED OF FISHING HAS COME FROM GRANDPA. THERE ARE NOT TOO MANY FISHING PLACES IN SOUTHERN IDAHO AND NORTHERN UTAH THAT WE HAVE NOT FISHED TOGETHER. ON ONE OCCASION HE AND GRANDMA WERE TRYING TO FIND A NEW FISHING SPOT. THEY WERE CROSSING THE DAM OF A LITTLE RESERVOIR (WINDOR) ABOVE PRESTON IDAHO WHEN THEY KNOCKED THE OIL PAN OUT OF THEIR LITTLE RAMBLER. GRANDPA THOUGHT HE COULD PUSH THE CAR AROUND SO THAT IT WOULD FACE THE OTHER DIRECTION AND GET EASIER ACCESS FOR HELP. GRANDMA GOT OUT TO HELP PUSH. THE NEXT THING THAT HAPPENED WAS THE RAMBLER WAS ON IT'S WAY DOWN THE FACE OF THE DAM AND INTO THE RESERVOIR. ONLY THE TOP COULD BE SEEN. UNCLE SAM HYMAS, GRANDMA'S BROTHER, THOUGHT THAT THIS WAS VERY FUNNY UNTIL THE NEXT WEEK HIS BRAKES WENT OUT WHILE PUTTING HIS BOAT IN AT TWIN LAKES AND HIS CAR RECEIVED A SIMILAR WASH. THE FOLLOWING WEEK A SIGN IN THE SMITHFIELD DRUG STORE WINDOW READ "CAR WASH INSIDE AND OUT - SEE CROSSLEY AND HYMAS". GRANDPA ALWAYS FOLLOWED THE SAVIORS ADMONITION, "IN AS MUCH AS YE HAVE DONE IT UNTO THE LEAST OF THESE, MY BRETHERN, YE HAVE DONE IT UNTO ME. WHEN ANY WIDOW NEEDED HELP THEY CALLED ON LOWELL. HE ALWAYS RESPONDED CHEERFULLY AND WITHOUT CHARGE. HE WAS ALWAYS IN DEMAND AND THEY HAVE ALWAYS SHARED WITH THE LESS FORTUNATE. NO ONE HAS EVER LEFT THEIR HOME HUNGRY. FOR EXAMPLE, WHEN A BROTHER GOT MARRIED AND NEEDED A HOME, THEY WERE RENTING A SMALL FOUR ROOM HOUSE AND HAD FOUR SMALL CHILDREN OF THE OWN, BUT THEY MOVED OUT OF ONE ROOM AND LET THE BROTHER LIVE IN IT. WHEN BOTH OF THEIR MOTHERS WERE LEFT WIDOWS, THEY WERE TAKEN INTO GRANDPA AND GRANDMA'S HOME AND CARED FOR, TENDERLY, UNTIL THEY PASSED. ON MARCH 9,1987 GRANDPA AND GRANDMA CELEBRATED THEIR 60TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY WITH A POSTERITY OF 110 DECENDANTS. TO MY KNOWLEDGE THEY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN TOGETHER IN SICKNESS AND IN HEALTH. GRANDPA SUFFERED MANY PROBLEMS OF ILL HEALTH DURING THE LAST FEW YEARS - HEART ATTACKS, BLOOD POISONING, BLOOD LOTS, AND STROKES WHICH LEFT HIM UNABLE TO SPEAK DURING THE LAST SEVERAL MONTHS. HOWEVER, HE COMMUNICATED VERY EFFECTIVELY WITH HIS EYES AND WITH HIS SMILE. NUMEROUS TIMES AS WE VISITED HIM IN THE REST HOME AND TALK ABOUT THE THINGS HE LOVED A BIG GRIN WOULD COME TO HIS FACE AND HE WOULD GLOW WITH EXCITEMENT. AND, WHEN TALKING ABOUT HIS FISHING TRIPS HE WOULD BE COME SO EXCITED AND YOU KNEW HE WAS REMEMBERING EACH OF THEM. HE WAS A GREAT EXAMPLE TO ALL OF HIS POSTERITY, INCLUDING FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS, THAT SURROUNDED HIM. HE PASSED QUIETLY ON TO HIS ETERNAL MANSION SURROUNDED BY HIS FAMILY, MONDAY, AUGUST 24,1987 AT 12:10 A.M.

Smithfield Youths Wounded in Hunting Accidents

Colaborador: SuzyQ Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Two Smithifeld youths received gunshot wounds in separate pheasant accidents Sunday, and the condition of one of them today was described “serious.” They are receiving treatment in Logan LDS hospital. Perry Crossley, 17, son of Mr. and Mrs. Lowell Crossley, Smithfield, was hunting pheasants with three companions, when the shotgun of one of the boys was discharged about 10 yards away, and part of the BB shot struck Perry in the right leg. This mishap occurred in the fields above Smithfield. His condition today was “good.” They were cache county’s first gunshot accidents of the fall hunting season.

Car Wash Inside and Out - See Crossley and Hymas

Colaborador: SuzyQ Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Growing up near grandparents was an important part of my life as I grew older. Between the ages of 15 to 19 I was blessed wit the opportunity of going fishing with my grandparents - Lowell and Fawn Crossley. I learned some fishing techniques from grandpa, like chumming, using 2 hooks versus 1, and using barrel sinkers. I loved fishing and had been going up High Creek, or fishing from a boat with my neighbor, or floating and fishing down the Bear River Narrows with my best friend Gordon, but there was something special when it came to fishing with Grandma and grandpa. They loved it more than anything they could do together. Grandpa would set up and bait the hooks for grandma and then cast it out. She would pull in the fish more times than he would and I seen her pull in two at a time many times - one on each hook. Every week during fishing season they were going to some favorite fishing spot in Idaho. One Saturday they decided to go to Windor Reservoir just out of Preston Idaho. I was invited to go, but I had to work. This day was not one of their better days I learned later as they related the story. As they were crossing the dam going to their favorite spot grandpa hit a rock and knocked out the oil pan. They decided to try and turn the car around so that they could get a local farmer to help them tow it back into preston to get it repaired. As they were pushing and working the car around, they got too close to the edge of the dam and pushed it over the side allowing the car to roll right into the dam. Only the very top of the car was showing as it was all under water. Grandpa was able to find a local farmer with a cat or tractor to pull it out and tow it to a shop for repairs and cleaning. It was not funny at the time, but they laughed about it many times. The car from that day forward always smelled "fishy". However, this was not the end of the story. Since Grandpa and grandma had no car for a few weeks to go fishing, grandpa was invited to go with his brother-in-law Sam Hymas (Grandma's brother) the next Saturday up to Twin Lakes (also in southern Idaho). As they were backing Sam's boat down the dock to put it in the water, Uncle Sam's car lost it's brakes and the boat and the car went rolling down into the water. And the only thing showing was, once again, the top of the car. Two weekends in a row they had the misfortune of having their cars go completely underwater. To make things really good, the drug store (SOS Drug) in Smithfield, where they both lived, put a big sign in the Window which said, "CAR WASH - INSIDE AND OUT - SEE CROSSLEY AND HYMAS"

Lois Crossley life History up to 1946

Lois Crossley – Life Story as of April 1946 (Hand written and I made every effort to interpret correctly) My name is Lois Crossley, I was born September 1, 1929 at Smoot, Lincoln County, Wyoming. The home I was born is at present owned by C. H. Peterson location is north of the Smoot grocery store. My father’s name is Lowell Samuel Crossley. He was born and Sharon Idaho. His father was Dennis George Crossley, and his mother was Pearl Young who are both presently living in Smithfield, Utah. My father Lowell was born July 31, 1905. My mother is Elfonda Hymas and she was born 30 April 1905 at liberty, Idaho. Her father was Alfred Cyrus Hymas and her mother is Mary Ann Lyon. I was blessed by Alvin Walton on October 20, 1929 at the Smoot Ward Chapel. I was confirmed by my grandfather Dennis George Crossley. After being baptized on 4 September 1937 I was confirmed September 5, 1937. At the age of five I started school. Mrs. Hemment was my second grade teacher, Miss Michelson third-grade teacher, Mrs. Larson succeeded in pushing me through the fourth grade, Mrs. Nield had me in the fifth grade, and Mrs. Anderson was the six grade teacher. For the seventh grade I had two or three teachers. First Mr. Greenwood, then we moved to Paris Idaho where Mr. Humes, Beth Rich, Mr. Stucki were my teachers. During this year I was nominated cheerleader for the coming year. Beverly Burn was a cheerleader with me. And the eighth grade I also had Mr. Stucki, Mr. Humes and Beth Rich also. I graduated from the Smoot grade school May 8, 1943. As a freshman in high school I was living in Star Valley, Wyoming on my grandfather’s farm. My teachers were Jim Gomm, Harry Ames, Cumorah Gardner, Herb Gardner and Mrs. Burton. Many of my friends that here I should like to mention are Florence Porter, Mary Hill, Cara Jean Erickson, Dan Welch, Lynn Welch, Rowland Johns, Dean Landcaster. My sophomore year found me in Bear River High School at Garland, Utah. Teachers for the first half year were Mr. Richards, Mrs. Baer, Miss. Johnson, Mr. Johnson, and Mr. Kerr. My junior year, which is this year, is a very happy year for me. I have been on the junior prom committee, where the theme was “Black Magical Love”. I have been on quite a number of floorshows - one in Penrose, which was Western floorshow, another the Vodie, which found me as an Indian, another found me as a Spanish Señorita, also a hula dancer in a floorshow on April 13, 1946. My teachers were Mrs. Rae, Miss. Nelson, Mr. Blackum, Miss Woodsides, Mr. King, and Mrs. Udy. I moved to Kaysville 6 miles west of Ogden, Utah in March 1945. I had a very happy life there as I met Glen Green, Sylvia Fletcher, Ed Green which brought me a very eventful time with lots of fun. With the three of them we had many watermelon busts and lots of parties. We had to move back to Elwood that year and I had my patriarchal blessing on February 4, 1944 by Ray S. Thurman. A group of us were taken down there to brother Thurman’s by Mr. Hill. Members of our class also came to Logan to go to the temple to be baptized for the dead. I was baptized eight times. My favorite sports are horseback riding, bicycle riding, ice-skating, roller-skating and dancing. My sisters are Mary P. Harsha who married George C. Harsha last year, lla Mae, and Veda. Perry is my only living brother, and my other brother Lowell died as a baby. My life story is not completed as of yet although I have neglected to write many things and I have a lot to go. This year is our centennial year 1947 and I have had many wonderful experiences so far this year. At the start of this year I was going with Glenn Balls a boy from Amalga. Then after his birthday we broke up. Now I am going with two boys and it is a big choice, but I think I have made it correctly. The two boys are Bob Johnson and Joe McNeely. I am working at the café and I don't know how much longer I will work here.

Life timeline of Lowell Samuel Crossley

1905
Lowell Samuel Crossley was born on 31 Jul 1905
Lowell Samuel Crossley was 12 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.
Lowell Samuel Crossley was 23 years old when Walt Disney character Mickey Mouse premieres in his first cartoon, "Plane Crazy". Walter Elias Disney was an American entrepreneur, animator, voice actor and film producer.

As a film producer, Disney holds the record for most Academy Awards earned by an individual, having won 22 Oscars from 59 nominations. He was presented with two Golden Globe Special Achievement Awards and an Emmy Award, among other honors. Several of his films are included in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.

The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, beginning in the United States. The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations; in most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until the late-1930s.

Part of Nagasaki was home to a major Imperial Japanese Navy base during the First Sino-Japanese War and Russo-Japanese War.
