The Blessing received by the John Samuel Littledyke Family

Colaborador: Chynna67 Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

The Blessing received by the John Samuel Littledyke Family at Brixworth, Northun, England in the year approximately 1884 as narrated by Frank H. Daly on January 25, 1968 (as his mother passed down to him). Written by C.R. Estheimer The even takes place as the Littledyke children are playing in the street in front of their home with other neighborhood children. An elderly gentleman came down the street, he had long white hair and a white beard; some of the neighborhood children were poking fun at him. The Littledyke children told their mother about the stranger in the street, after they told their story Fannie Littledyke had the children invite the stranger in for lunch. Samuel Littledyke, Sr told the stranger if he stayed around till after work that day he would repair his shoes for him. Samuel asked a blessing on the food and they proceeded to eat. At the end of the meal, before anyone left the table the stranger rose up and spread forth his hands and proceeded to give the family a blessing. They were told they would all come to America an settle in the same place. As the stranger made to leave, Fannie Littledyke opened the door for him, and he immediately closed it behind him. She thought this was strange and she proceeded to open the door immediately but the stranger had completely disappeared. (Making the event all the more mysterious is the door opens into the street and the street being long and narrow with no place to turn except into a neighbor's. On the inquiry of the neighbors- no one had seen the stranger in the neighborhood.) The family believes that the Blessing was by a translated being-- namely on of the "Three Nephites" of "John the Beloved." The Samuel Littledyke Sr. Family joined the LDS Church in England. Samuel Sr joined right after he heard the missionaries. He was convinced that the Gospel and the Church were true. Fannie was quite opposed, she believed the only true Church was the "Church of England." She was convinced that the Mormon Church was the church of the devil and born in hell. This caused some friction in the house, until Samuel convinced her to come to a meeting and hear for herself; shortly after this she joined the Church and the remainder of the family also. The family came over singly and in couples, as they could afford. Emma and Lee came over together. Interesting story here is Samuel Sr made a # 12 and put it in the inside band of Lee's hat--so when asked if he was under 12 he could say he was under 12 (passengers under 12 years old got by for half fare on ships) Emma was approximately 15 years old at this time. Al Littledyke, Samuel Sr and Fannie, and remainder of the children were last to come over. "Al" settled at Filmore Utah. He was quite an animal lover- in fact on train to Utah, they stopped at a station and he got so interested in a dog he was left behind. Fannie got real shook up and got the conductor to stop the train and back up and pick Al up. He was quite artistically talented. Frank has an article about "Al" where he was interviewed in a Historical magazine called "Ye Old Timers." Samuel Littledyke had an accident with hot water or something in drinking that caused his tongue to protrude, so he grew a mustache and beard to help cover up the fact. he consequently sought seclusion and loved to spend time in the woods. He became quite a naturalist, practiced taxidermy and made boxes with nature scenes in them for all of his children. Frank remembers a puzzle in a bottle he built and he taught Frank how to assemble and disassemble as he thought Frank was the only one of his grandchildren that had enough patience to do so.

Charles Robert Darwin, was an English naturalist, geologist and biologist, best known for his contributions to the science of evolution. He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors and, in a joint publication with Alfred Russel Wallace, introduced his scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection, in which the struggle for existence has a similar effect to the artificial selection involved in selective breeding.
Samuel Littledike was 31 years old when American Civil War: Fort Sumter surrenders to Confederate forces. The American Civil War was a war fought in the United States from 1861 to 1865.

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.

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.
