History: David William Rowley

March 1979

As David occasionally says, “The Old Arab has moved again!” we are now living in Mountain Home, Elmore, Idaho. We are both well, but sometimes feeling our ages of 75 and 70! We are still trying to please our Heavenly Father.

Grandpa (Dave) is having trouble to remember the scriptures he loves so much, after he has studied them diligently. Grandma (Stella) tries to comfort him. She tells him that even if he doesn’t remember the exact thought, the spiritual food is received by his soul and it is enlarged when he ponders and mediated and gets closer to the Lord as he studies and that someday he will remember them again.

Grandpa likes something he first heard Grandma say back in 1972 – “If you persist in doing your duty after a while your duty becomes your pleasure.” Now, on 20 March 1979, she has added a sequel – “If you persist in NOT doing your duty, after a while you will have no real pleasure in anything you do.”

In late years we have seen a graphic example or two of this. We have also seen several examples of those who persist in doing their duty and their lives have been filled and their spirits enlarged and their pleasure has become joy! This is filling the measure of their creation, for the Lord has said… “Man is that he might have joy!” (Estella Tidwell Rowley)

I now have thirty-four grandchildren, (Estella has 21). I have seven grandchildren married, Estella has one married. I have fourteen great grandchildren, Estella has two. I would like to live to see all of them grown, see them go on missions, marry in the temple and have righteous families of their own. My goodness, I would really have a posterity then! Even if I don’t live to see it, I feel that I will know about it.

I would like to leave a Father’s Blessing with each and every one of you, my descendants.

Lovingly dedicated to my descendants – in the hope that some small part of my life experiences might be of interest, and possibly cause you, my loved ones, to live your lives with more courage and with more faith and trust in the Lord, I also hope that this history may help you to gain a deeper love for your fellowmen. My hope is that you will always seek first the Kingdom of God, that you pray earnestly and often enough that you get to know Him, so that you will be able to recognize His will and the things He has in mind for you. Keep all of His commandments and endure to the end, then, if I have lived sufficiently obedient and valiant, we have a happy reunion as a big and loving family. That we may be allowed to reside in His presence is my fervent wish. What a glorious day that will be!

I was called “Willie” when I was small, Bill when I grew older (still Bill to my brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews) and finally David or Dave in my later life. I first opened my eyes upon the scenes of this world in the lovely time of Thanksgiving in the little town of Shelley, Idaho. The day was 24 November, in the year 1903.

I am humbly proud of my heritage as all of us who descend from the early Mormon Pioneers can justly be. My great-grandparents (Ralph Nephi Rowley, Mary Ann Thompson, Nicholas Paul, Harriet May, David William Davis, Charlotte Nott Jeremy, Rueben Coles and Hannah Terrell) and my grandparents (John Thompson Rowley, Jane Paul, David Peter Davis and Caroline Ann Coles) on both my father’s (Hugh Thompson Rowley) and mother’s (Grace Davis) side joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, after which they immigrated to America from different parts of the British Commonwealth.

History: Grace Davis

The father of Grace Davis, David Peter Davis, was born 29 May 1854 at Aberaman, near Aberdare, Glamorganshire, Wales; the son of David William Davis and Charlotte Nott Jeremy. His parents were converts to the LDS Church when David Peter was ten months old, they immigrated to the United States because of their religious beliefs and they hoped to find better working conditions than in the mines of Wales.

They lived in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, where a daughter, Mary Ann, was born on 30 August 1856. Another daughter was born at Alma Town, Illinois in 1860, who was named Ellen Jane. Apparently, they were on their way through Missouri in 1861 when Ellen Jane took ill and passed away on the boat going from St. Louis to Florence, Nebraska and was buried at Harmon on the banks of the river 25 January 1861.

Grace’s mother was Caroline Anne Coles, a daughter of Rueben Coles and Hannah Terrill. They were both from England, but had immigrated and were living in Cedar Fort, where Caroline met David Peter Davis when he came to Cedar Fort to work. He met Caroline at a dance during the time they were holding an LDS Conference in Cedar Fort. They were friends for two years. Caroline was only seventeen and David Peter was twenty-one when they were secretly married on 8 October 1875.

Grace was the first child of eight born to David Peter Davis and Caroline Anne Coles. She was born 21 August 1876 in Cedar Fort, Utah. Her mother was living in the home of Grace’s grandparents, Rueben and Hannah. Of the eight children born to David Peter and Caroline, only Grace, Parley, Hannah and Charlotte lived to adulthood.  David Rueben died at the age of twelve and the others (two sons, Evan and Polly Davis) died at birth.

Parley was born 17 July 1878 at Cedar Fort, Utah. He never married and died 20 September 1943.

Hannah was born 21 November 1880 at Samaria, Idaho.

David Reuben was born in Samaria on 2 February 1883. When David Reuben was twelve years old, he and Parley were driving some horses. Parley became aggravated because they wouldn’t go where he wanted them to go; he picked up a slivery stick and threw it. It missed the horse and hit Rueben in the face. Not having drugs and medication to treat such things like we do today, tetanus or lockjaw, as they called it then, soon developed and Reuben lay for a month–slowly dying from the infection and starvation. He could neither eat nor drink. David Peter and Caroline sat by his bedside and watched their son slowly slip away from them. For some time David Peter was bitter about this as he couldn’t see the justice in one so young having to suffer so much. David Rueben died 20 September 1895.

Charlotte, the third daughter, was born 1 February 1866 at Milo, Idaho, in a log cabin with loop-holes for defense against the Indians. She was a frail child with a rheumatic heart. Because of this condition she was never really in good health and sometimes in very poor health.
