History of Pearl Perrin Hoffman

Colaborador: briannc Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Written by Ricardo G. Hitchcock (son) Pearl Perrin Hoffman was born in Bingham Canyon, Utah, on September 10, 1876. Her parents were Frank (or Francis) Hoffman and Charlotte Louise Higbee Shortly thereafter, they returned to Salt Lake City, Utah, where she grew up and went through school, graduating from the Old Salt Lake High and then attending the Westminster College. She also attended McCune School of Music, developing a great talent on the piano. She became proficient in typing and secretarial work and worked for her father in his office in Salt Lake City. In 1907 she met Gilliat Hitchcock at a party at the home of one of her friends. Her father disapproved of her or her sister having boy friends so their courtship was rather a secretive one. They were married in Ogden, Utah, March 12, 1907 and left immediately for Nevada where Bill had a job as hoist engineer in a mine near Golconda, Nevada. On June 30, 1908 their only child, a son, Ricardo, was born in a tent in Golconda. Shortly after, they moved to Yuma, Arizona where Bill worked in the Yuma Hardware store which also took care of any mortician work that was necessary. They were here about six years then moved to Beaumont, California where they remained for about eight years. Here she was very active in the community affairs, being active in the Rebecca Lodge, the local Women’s Club, and the Red Cross during the First World War. About 1920 they moved back to Salt Lake City where Bill worked for the Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad as a machinist in the shops. He remained there until the depression hit in 1932 when he was laid off. They moved to a small acreage in Hagerman, Idaho about 1936 where they stayed until her death, October 14, 1942. She died while on a visit to Salt Lake City and was buried in Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Salt Lake City, Utah. All during her life she was well liked by those she associated with, took an active part in her Lodge work and community activities, holding official positions in every Rebecca Lodge that she belonged to in each community she lived in. She also held positions in the Utah State Rebecca Assembly for several years. She was always in demand as a pianist and gave lessons wherever she was. She attended church whenever possible though she never joined any particular church and she raised her son in the same manner seeing to it that he learned his music and attended Sunday School in some church.

Colaborador: briannc Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Gilliat and his brother Charles abandoned their mining interests and went to Salt Lake city for a time, where "Bill" as he was known by now, sold real estate and operated one of the first automobile taxi's in Salt Lake City and vicinity, operating Stanley Steamer and Pope Toledo cars. While there, he met Pearl Hoffman, a daughter of Frank Hoffman. He was a lawyer and mining man of the area. Frank Hoffman was not in favor of his daughters dating or getting married. Bill obtained a job as hoist engineer at a mine in Golconda, Nevada and so called Pearl and told her he was leaving and if she wanted to go with him to meet him at the train. Unable to take anything more than the clothes she was wearing, she supposedly went to visit one of her girl friends, met Bill and they were married in Ogden, Utah, March 12, 1907.

Ricardo was working in Ogden, Utah at Hill Air Force Base ands had been home to Idaho for a visit. Gilliat and Pearl were living in Hagerman, Idaho. Pearl decided to ride back to Ogden with him and go into Salt Lake to visit some friends. She had a hernia and got sick. Her friends took her to the hospital and she died, 14 October, before she could return home. After Pearl's death "Bill" came back to his place in Hagerman. He lived the life of a lonely man. He wouldn't even get a dog to keep him company. When Laddie, a shepherd dog had died a few years previously he felt so badly that he felt he couldn't face that possibility again. He went to work at a school for wealthy boys between Phoenix and Prescott, Arizona. Note from her son, Ricardo Hitchcock: I went to Salt Lake fro Ogden and couldn't find anyone at home at Mother's friend's houses. When I got back to work in Ogden, they told me someone had been trying to get hold of me to tell me Mother had died. (Holy Cross Hospital)

Life timeline of Pearl Perrin Hitchcock (Hoffman)

Pearl Perrin Hitchcock (Hoffman) was born on 10 Sep 1878
Pearl Perrin Hitchcock (Hoffman) was 5 years old when Eruption of Krakatoa: Four enormous explosions destroy the island of Krakatoa and cause years of climate change. The 1883 eruption of Krakatoa in the Dutch East Indies began in the afternoon of Sunday, 26 August 1883, and peaked in the late morning of Monday, 27 August when over 70% of the island and its surrounding archipelago were destroyed as it collapsed into a caldera. Additional seismic activity was reported to have continued until February 1884, though reports of seismic activity after October 1883 were later dismissed by Rogier Verbeek's investigation into the eruption. The 1883 eruption was one of the deadliest and most destructive volcanic events in recorded history. At least 36,417 deaths are attributed to the eruption and the tsunamis it created. Significant additional effects were also felt around the world in the days and weeks after the volcano's eruption.
Pearl Perrin Hitchcock (Hoffman) was 13 years old when Thomas Edison patents the motion picture camera. Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.
Pearl Perrin Hitchcock (Hoffman) was 27 years old when Albert Einstein publishes his first paper on the special theory of relativity. Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. He is best known to the general public for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2, which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation". He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect", a pivotal step in the development of quantum theory.
Pearl Perrin Hitchcock (Hoffman) was 39 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.
Pearl Perrin Hitchcock (Hoffman) was 42 years old when The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, guaranteeing women's suffrage in America. The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens of the United States on the basis of sex. It was adopted on August 18, 1920.
Pearl Perrin Hitchcock (Hoffman) was 61 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.
