History: David William Rowley

Some of my dearest memories are of these reunions and the warm and loving times we had together. The family tree I had made was a binding influence, also the family paper, I kind of long to go back to those times. More details of this time in my life can be found in my notebooks.

Sometimes I have a wonderful feeling that life is so sweet and I have the assurance that all is well. I haven’t always had the feeling and I haven’t always done as I should. But I do pray that I will and that I will have His spirit to be with me to guide me and help me to have the strength and inspiration to do right and to keep His commandments.

Being President of this new organization as well as trying to keep the Rowley’s going took a lot of my time but it gave me a great deal of satisfaction. Marjorie was doing a good job of the paper and I was happy for that.

I started going out with other women a year or so after Lillian (Lillian Alcorn) died. I went to some of the singles parties, etc., that the Church puts out. I met some of the women there, others were introduced to me by friends. I wanted to get married again, but just couldn’t seem to find anyone that fully satisfied me. I did not want to marry a divorced woman, but I did want one that I could take to the Temple.

I had kept my friendship up with Luella and Manuel Downard. I loved those two and they loved me. Sometimes I would call them on the phone quite late in the evening, maybe after I had spent many hours in the library doing research, and we would talk of genealogy. I could talk about anything to them and they didn’t seem to mind how late I called.

By February, 1961 Hugh (Hugh Alcorn Rowley) had finished his mission and came home. He had filed a fine mission, had many converts and many spiritual experiences. Since we were not at war and he was qualified to do, he decided to go into the Army for six months and get that duty taken care of before he went on with his life.

In April I received word of the birth of another little granddaughter. Kristine had a sister and Ralph (Ralph Alcorn Rowley) and Aleene (Aleene Sumsion) had three children (Kurtis Wayne, Kristine and Lorrian) now. They named her Lorraine. She was my lucky 13th grandchild, born 12 April 1961.

Grace (Grace Harriet Rowley) and the children (Cheryl Jeanette, Donna Diane, Ronald Steven and Lillian Lorraine Smith) were with me through 1961. Sometimes I took Grace places with me and sometimes we were mistaken for brother and sister instead of father and daughter. My own dear sister, Verda (Verda May Rowley), came to visit from Montana as often as she could and we went places together also. We always enjoyed each other’s company so much.

On 9 November 1961 Marjorie (Marjorie Ann Rowley) gave birth to her fourth child, another beautiful, brown-eyed little boy. They name him Myron Dwain. He was a special joy to me and he still is.

I was going with a woman who lived in Bountiful, but later moved to Salt Lake. Her name was Stella King Galloway. She was quite a genealogist and I was interested in that field myself. I used to go to the library and do research on my days off and on Saturdays and would work on my records and things for the family organizations far into the night, sometimes.

History: David William Rowley

Ralph (Ralph Alcorn Rowley) had gone back to BYU and was active in the R.O.T.C. He became the student Commander of the BYU group. He met a young woman there that he thought a lot of. We liked her very much, too. Her name was Aleene Sumsion. She was from the state of Washington and after she graduated from BYU in June of 1957, she went home to work for the summer. Ralph spent some time there during the summer, also.

Ralph and Aleene decided to get married in the fall and set their date as 21 August 1957. Douglas (Douglas Alcorn Rowley) and Vonna (Vonna Ensign) had been married just 11 months before. Ralph and Aleene chose the Salt Lake Temple. Most of the family was at the ceremony and the reception that followed. Aleene taught school while Ralph finished his last year at BYU.

In the fall two more grandchildren were born. Marjorie (Marjorie Ann Rowley) added a little girl named Dwana Kay Judkins – 186, born 26 September 1957. Vonna had her first baby, a boy, born 4 November 1957 whom they named William Douglas Rowley – 164. They were both hale and healthy.

Clayton (Clayton Alcorn Rowley) came home from his mission in June of 1958. He had the unusual experience of being called to the California North Mission, the area we had just moved from. He had some wonderful experiences to tell us about. He had left from the Salt Lake 4th Ward and when he returned we were living in the Bountiful 3rd.

Ralph and Aleene had their first baby on 21 May 1958. It was a boy they named Kurtis Wayne Rowley. Ralph was sure glad to be the father of a son.

I was still in construction work but with the fall my job ran out. Dwain’s Dwain Eugene Judkins) father (Leonard Newell Judkins) offered me a job working for him in Orem, Utah. Sometimes Lillian (Lillian Alcorn) and the boys (Hugh Alcorn and Grant Alcorn Rowley) came down on weekends and sometimes I went home to Bountiful for the weekend. I stayed with Dwain and Margie. I surely enjoyed their little children (David Lenn, Deon Eugene and Dwana Judkins). We all spent Christmas with them in Orem. Just before this, however, Vonna gave birth to her second son, Scott Calvin Rowley, who was born 19 December 1958. This made us 10 grandchildren.

Following are excerpts from a letter I wrote to my brother, Francis (Hugh Francis Rowley, after a trip to Idaho:

“I don’t know if Verda (Verda May Rowley) has contacted you since we went back to Montana or not, but we had quite a trip when we went up to Aunt Mary’s (Mary Ann Jones) funeral.

“We went up to Rigby that night. Verda stayed with Virginia, my old girlfriend. The rest of us went to a hotel. The next morning I walked around town, but there were not many places I would have recognized after all these years. I was sure glad to see my old Sunday School teacher, Ralph Hoggan, who got me started reading the Book of Mormon,

“We contacted the Calls and Jesse and Frank and their wives went with us up to the old dry farm where we used to work and play together as children. We went in two cars and drove up through Ririe. A few of the old places were still there. When we reached the Bingham dry farm I saw they had it all under irrigation from pumping wells. It was all green with a beautiful crop of potatoes.
