History: David William Rowley

We went with Francis (Hugh Francos Rowley) and Erma (Erma Thornton) to Kalispell and enjoyed the beautiful country very much. Then over the highline road which Estella (Estella Cordelia Tidwell) said seemed like the top of the world. We saw some big mountain sheep, then on to Havre. Verda (Verda May Rowley) went over to Harlem with us. My how the memories flooded back; we visited Sharon’s (Sharon Lee Rowley) grave and also my mother’s (Grace Davis) and father’s (Hugh Thompson Rowley). Then we went out to our old home and Estella got to see the country and places where I spent 20 years of my life. When we got back to Havre, Bert (Bert Lund Murphy) had a turkey dinner ready for us and boy was it good because we were all really hungry.

While we were gone to Montana Hugh (Hugh Alcorn Rowley) and Gail (Gail Jensen) had a baby boy. They named him Stephen Michael. Hugh and his family had moved back to Utah and he had gone into the insurance business. They were living in Layton. We went right out to see the new baby.

I had a few days left from my June vacation, so Hubert (Hubert Tidwell) and Estella and I went to Wyoming. We caught quite a lot of fish in the Green River and we dug out fish fossils from the side of the mountain. It was sire cold there, even in the summer

August came and with it word that Aleene (Aleene Sumsion) had given birth to her fifth child, finally another son. They named him Lynn Sumsion Rowley. Ralph (Ralph Alcorn Rowley) was very happy to have a second son.

Soon after we got word that Estella had a new grandson, also, born to Bob and Tita. We wished we could go see them. In November we got word that Geneal had given birth to a new baby girl. Stella felt bad that she couldn’t go down to be with her.

For my birthday that year, 1966, the children gave me a big “surprise” birthday party. It was held in Hugh’s chapel in Layton. There was quite a crowd and they were all my family! Being so near Thanksgiving we had a big turkey dinner and had such a good time. I will never forget it.

This year proved to be a bumper crop of grandchildren for us both. I had four and Estella had two. Then to top it all off, I received word that I was a great grandfather! Cheryl (Cheryl Jeanette Smith) had married a nice young man (Robert Michael Owens) she met at Ralph’s and now she had a baby. They named him Robert (Robert Eugene Owens), and he was born 18 December 1966. My cup runneth over! We had dinner with Douglas (Douglas Alcorn Rowley) and Vonna’s  (Vonna Ensign) that Christmas. Grant (Grant Alcorn Rowley) was home from Vietnam and went with us.

I was still working for the Davis Count School District. They had moved their shops from Farmington to Kaysville. The head of the carpenter shops was Claud Moore, my old friend from California. Estella and I visited them once in a while.

Harold (Harold Norman Johnson) brought his family down for a few days’ vacation and we had a nice visit. They told us that Chad (Chad Layne McKnight) and Virginia (Virginia Fern Johnson) were having marital troubles. We had suspected it before.

We were working almost constantly with our genealogical records, sending many sheets to the temple. We enjoyed this work so very much and were receiving heavenly direction in our efforts to do research. Estella was especially having spiritual direction. Refer to her history for details of some of these miracles.

To be continued…

History: David William Rowley

They decided to keep her (Sharon Lee Rowley) in the hospital, but I had to go home and do the chores and get back to the rest of the family. I went up to see Sharon before I left. She put her little arms out to me and smiled and cooed and it seemed like she was trying to say, “It’s all right, Daddy, I’ll be all right.” Even though I went home Lillian (Lillian Alcorn) stayed with her. I went home feeling so much better, thinking that she was going to get well.

Two days later Lillian called and asked me to bring her some clothes. She didn’t mention any change on the phone, but when I got to the door she met me and told me that Sharon died. It shook me so bad that I walked right passed her and went to see Sharon. Her little hands were still warm, and I thought I could bring her back through the power of the Priesthood as I had done before. By this time Lillian was standing by the door and said, “Don’t do it, Dave, don’t make her suffer any more.”

So we laid our little darling Sharon to rest in the Harlem Cemetery. We were comforted to know that we would have her again in the hereafter. No matter how great our sorrow or how much we would like things to be different, life has to go on. Though she’s been gone these many years, as it is over thirty-five years ago, her sweet face comes back to my thoughts so much of the time. As also does my beloved wife, Lillian’s and David’s (David Alcorn Rowley), for all these many years. Things that made life happier and better place to live. I think my Heavenly Father for the association I had with each of them. It wasn’t all sunshine, but at least there were many lessons learned that made me happier and much wiser because of having had them in my home and in my heart. The feelings of inspiration I sometimes feel about them as I think of them is special to me. You know this is so true, “life is sweet because of the loved ones we have” The things which we share in common, not because of ourselves, but because there are those who care. You know, we’re always so much better off for having had someone who cared we may not be rich in gold and silver but we can be rich in having loved ones who care. Sometimes I feel I can almost talk to departed loved ones. They seem so close. We all need time for meditation, time to think back and we all really need a little time each day to meditate and get acquainted with ourselves. We need time to make plans to improve this precious gift of life and body that we may have joy.

Well life went on for us. I did more work in the basement, fixing a better place for the boys to sleep. I also made a fruit room and a laundry area.

One day in the spring of 1943 when the boys and I were thinning beets in the south field, Ralph (Ralph Alcorn Rowley) was playing instead of working. He was burrowing his head in the soft sandy soil. So while I was at the other end of the field where some willows grew, I chopped off a small one and put it in my back pocket and went on thinning. I thinned clear through and up to where Ralph was and he was still burrowing his head in the sand. I stepped up behind him and he never saw me at all until I laid the willow right across his tight pants. He was really surprised, but I don’t think he ever did anything like that again.

On the 26th of June 1944 our 9th and last child was born. It was another fine son. We named him Grant Alcorn Rowley, giving him his mother’s maiden name as a second name as we had done with all our sons.

History: David William Rowley

When Grace (Grace Harriet Rowley) was a young lady, she had a very nice complexion and was a very wonderful helper for her mother (Lillian Alcorn). She was the oldest child and often stayed home and took care of the children (David Alcorn, Douglas Alcorn, Ralph Alcorn, Clayton Alcorn, Marjorie Ann and Hugh Alcorn Rowley) and the house. She was a good housekeeper, too. One time we had to go to Havre and before I left, I told the boys to get the cows in about six o’clock. When it became time, the boys didn’t make any effort to get the cows in and Grace reminded them but they still didn’t go after the animals. Grace still tried to get them to do the job and finally she took off her shoe and threw it at the boys, but she missed and it hit the glass door in the library and broke it. She was afraid I would really get after her, but instead I got after the boys for not minding in the first place.

We had home nights part of the time and sometimes I read to the family. I read such books as “The White Indian Boy”, “Robinson Crusoe,” “The Swiss Family Robinson,” and then out of the “Instructor and the Improvement Era.” Sometimes we would go to the show, but not often because money was so hard to get.

Hugh was just a toddler when he tried to walk across a footbridge that went across the slough and he fell in. Marjorie wasn’t old enough to get him out, but she ran for help to Mrs. Wright who was living in the labor house on the edge of the slough. Her husband was working for us. When Mrs. Wright got there Hugh was crawling on the bottom, under the water, trying to get to the edge. She reached down and helped him out.

Lillian gave birth to another baby on 14 May 1942. A lovely red-haired little girl graced our home. She was born in the Harlem hospital and was the first of our children to be born in a hospital. We named her Sharon Lee Rowley. We were so glad to have another little girl. She was a frail baby and soon we learned that she had asthma, or at least the doctor thought it was asthma.

One Sunday morning, on the 27th of September 1942, the boys and I were out doing the chores when Grace came running out and said the Sharon was having convulsions. I was milking a heifer and almost done. I tried to hurry and finish. Grace came right back out and told me it was too late, that Sharon was dead. I dropped everything, spilling the milk, and went running to the house. Sharon was lying across Lillian’s arm like a wet blanket. I took the baby and laid across the foot of the bed and started artificial respiration by slowly by slowly pumping her little left arm up and down. I was praying all the time. Francis came running over too, after the boys had gone for him. Soon I saw the color coming back into her face, but her cheeks were still a little blue. I went to Bailey’s to call the doctor and to get someone to take us to Havre to the hospital. I didn’t have anything but a truck that was all open. Brother Larsen came soon and took us to Havre.

At the hospital they put Sharon in an oxygen tent and several of them started working on her. After a while they came and told us that there was mucus coming into her throat and choking her, but they couldn’t tell where it was coming from, so it wasn’t asthma.
