Journal: Grace Harriet Rowley

I also remember when my Grandma Grace (Grace Davis) died from a goiter in 1935. At that time in history, it was common for the body to be kept in the house until the funeral. I remember wondering what was wrong with my Grandma, why didn’t she move. I did not understand that Grandma had passed away.

I also remember when Grandpa Rowley (Hugh Thompson Rowley) went to get Uncle Walter (Walter Illith Rowley) from his mission. He brought back the most beautiful necklaces I had ever seen. The necklace he gave me was a beautiful blue. I cherished it for a long time.

Great Grandma Alcorn (Mary Catherine Hammons), Grandpa Clark’s (Clark Alcorn) mother was a special Grandma, she used to keep bread and jelly in her dresser drawer.  When David (David Alcorn Rowley) and I went to see her we felt special because would give us a piece of bread and jelly from her dresser.

My Grandma Harriet Ann Weaver died in 1922, 6 years before I was born. When I was older Mom (Lillian Alcorn) let me wear her ring to school. It was either garnet or ruby. While I was at school the ring was stolen. I remember how hard it was to tell my mother that the ring had been stolen, but my worrying was for nothing; mother was very understanding. Thank goodness we found out who had the ring and were able to get it back.

My Mother was a beautiful seamstress and made me beautiful clothes. She also had a wonderful singing voice. Mother had pretty auburn hair. Once when I was about 12, I got sick and mother took me to the doctor. I don’t remember what was wrong. But I had to eat boiled egg shells. Mother would boil the egg shells until they were brown.

I grew up during the depression and things were tough to say the l east. When I was about eight, I was invited to go to a birthday party. We didn’t have money to buy a present so mother made a batch of fudge and I gave that for a present. The other kids laughed at me. They thought it was so funny. That was not easy to take. My mother was a wonderful cook and made the best fudge.

Christmas was a special time of year for everyone. The trees would have candles on them and we would string popcorn. Mother would make homemade candy and goodies. Most of the presents were handmade too. Mother would sew clothes and Dad (David William Rowley) would make toys. We sang together as families and would go on horse drawn sleigh rides when there was enough snow. It was a wonderful time of year with many happy memories. When I was 12 or 13, the boys got a bike and I got a silver watch.

On Sundays the families would get together and make homemade ice cream. It was a wonderful blessing to have family close by and we did a lot of fun things together.

John Wright and Sarah Wright Family Messenger

We are sorry to have to make this history in two installments, but we are short of space and will continue this interesting history in the next edition.

Now we will conclude the history of Hugh Thompson Rowley, which we began in the November issue.

HUGH THOMPSON ROWLEY
son of John Thompson Rowley and Jane Paul
Written by David William Rowley

In the spring of 1933, Dad (Hugh Thompson Rowley) rented the old Webster place, 1 ½ miles west of Rigby, which we operated one year. It was very rocky and very hard to get enough to raise a crop. There was a very fine house on the place. While living there we attended the Shelton Ward. Francis and I were ordained Priests, 1 April 1933, by Bishop Edmond Lovell. Emerson Adis and Walter Illithattended grade school down by Moore’s place.

In the fall of 1933, Dad, Hugh ‘Francis’ and I went to work in the Utah Idaho Sugar Co. plant at Lincoln, Idaho where we worked out the fall campaign. Dad sacked sugar, Hugh ‘Francis’ and I worked on the batteries. We rented a house in Lincoln and Verda May went down and cooked for us and took in other boarders, she made pretty good along with us.

My cousin, Charles Galloway came up to Lincoln to see me and we decided that he and I would go to Salt Lake City, when the campaign was over and work for an oil company. Charles is a very good welder, I was going to learn welding and we were going to travel together, but when we got to Salt Lake City, I was unable to get on with the same company as they were full handed. So I went to work for the Jacobson Construction Company. I helped remodel the Episcopalian Church and then went over to the Temple Grounds, where we put in some cesspools north of the tithing offices and the assisted in putting in a high cement wall with a marble finish, from the north side and up between the Temple and Tabernacle. It was while working here that I got a letter from Mother telling me they were moving to Montana and wanted me to go with them.

I packed up and went back to Idaho, arriving there 28 March 1924. The folks were packing and getting ready to go.

Dad had been to Montana and looked it over and rented a place from a Mr. A. S. Lohman, at Lohman, Montana. The place had 160 acres in it but some were taken out for roads and ditches.

Hugh Galloway, the brother of Charles, was going with us. He loaded the ten horses in one end of the box car and the equipment and what furniture we took with us in the other end. Hugh Galloway and I went to Montana in the box car with the stock. This was quite an experience, caring for the stock, seeing that they got plenty of water and feed on the way when we would stop over. We arrived there in the forepart of April and got a wagon from Lohman’s and got the box car unloaded.

Dad, Hugh ‘Francis’, Emerson Adis and Walter Illith left Rigby two days after we did and went as far as St. Anthony, where they had Dad’s cancers treated by Reese Richards. He treated them with a medicine made up into a poultice, which was applied on the cancerous spots and when they came off, they brought out the cancerous roots and all. It was a horrible sight, looking like an octopus only having more legs and each left a hole where it had come from. This made Dad pretty sick while they were coming out.

 They came on and arrived in Lohman about a week after Hugh and I. Dad was still pretty sick from the cancer treatment after Dad arrived we made arrangements for seed, food and etc., and started to get the crops in. we put in grain, beans and beets.

Hugh Galloway rented another place about a mile and a half north of our place, from Mr. A. S. Lohman.

Mother and Verda May got to Lohman about the middle of May.

Dad bought our potatoes seed from Winfield Hurst, at Zurich. Hugh Galloway and I took two wagons and went to Zurich and got the seed. The highway was new and very soft. We had such heavy loads we got stuck and had to hire a dray outfit to help pull us out and we didn’t get home until one o’clock in the morning. Dad got worried about us and walked out to meet us. He got heated and overly tired. When he got home he had such a nose bleed, that he nearly bled to death.

Hugh ‘Francis’ went back to Idaho as soon as the crops were in and stayed most of the summer, working there around Rigby, Idaho.

Dad and Mother were always very hard workers, but never seemed to get ahead very far financially, mostly because of the lack of investment and having to live to near our income, leaving no margin for investment.

We farmed two years on the Lohman place. We raised beets, grain, beans and etc. mother always raised a good garden and this helped a great deal in our living costs. She always did a lot of canning of fruit and vegetables.

We found that they were holding Sunday School at Zurich. We would drive there as often as we could to attend those meetings. We enjoyed them very much and appreciated the privilege of attending them.

I was called on a short local mission for three weeks. Hugh Murphy was my missionary companion, we labored around Chinook.

On the 9th of September 1925, Hugh ‘Francis’ married Erma Thornton. They moved in with us.

In the spring of 1826, they moved to the Christensen place in Zurich. Soon after, however, they found that they could not agree on some points. They moved from there to Harlem and rented a place from Roy Colgrove,  and then moved on down to the place which they farmed for one year. They raised beets, grain, flax, potatoes and a fine garden. They did all right there.

I went to work for Butler and Harrison who were sheep men. I met a girl, Lillian Alcorn, at a dance and was impressed much by the way she acted.

We attended the new Harlem Branch Sunday School and Sacrament Meetings. A. L. Johnson was Branch President, Angus Young, and Chris Stuker were counselors, and A. L. Stoddard was Branch Clerk. James Shupe was Sunday School Supt.

Dad bought the old Jake Everett place of 150 acres on the south road out of Harlem, about 3 ½ miles west of Harlem. We moved there in the spring of 1927, where we built a log house, straw sheds and dug a potato cellar and then planted a small orchard and built ditches to irrigate the place. We raised a very good crop, without irrigation. We were unable to get the ditches made in time.

The Latter-Day Saints Church house was built on one corner of Dad’s place before he bought it.  We all enjoyed our services and recreations and all of our quarterly conferences.

Clark Alcorn bought the old Leslie Taylor place neighboring Dad’s on the north. This was another very good ranch.

Lillian and I were married on the 14 of July 1927 at Chinook, Montana by Branch President W. B. Peterson. Her father, Clark Alcorn, and my father, Hugh Thompson Rowley were the witnesses.

After the ceremony, we all had supper, went to a movie and came home in a rainstorm.

To help pay expenses Hugh ‘Francis’, Emerson Adis and I weeded beets. Dad took care of the place. Mother as always raised a good garden and chickens and turkeys each year.

In the spring of 1928, Verda May was called on a mission to the Central States where she labored for two years, teaching the Gospel from door to door…”A Priceless Pearl”, it is to those who believe and try to serve and keep the commandments of our Savior. Mother and Father were very proud and happy to have one of their children fulfill a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

They were also very glad to have her come home again for they were getting rather homesick to see this only daughter of theirs. They were proud and happy to hear of her missionary experiences.

Shortly after Verda May’s return from her mission, she started to go with Bert Lund Murphy, the son of Thomas E. Murphy and Margaret Camilla Lund. Bert was born 2 December 1903 at Chapin, Freemont Co., Idaho.

Bert had also just returned from a mission, having labored in the North Central States Mission. They were married 17 December 1930 in the Cardston Temple, at Cardston, Canada.

They immediately started farming with his father, just out of Zurich, Montana. Shortly after this they were set apart as MIA president in the Harlem Branch of the LDS Church.

Later, Bert was set apart as Branch President. They were hard workers and lived the Gospel and taught it.

Father did a lot of work on the old ranch trying to fix it up. Mother was a great help. Mother suffered a lot from gall stones and a goiter for many years, until she died on 1 March 1935 at Idaho Falls, Idaho following a goiter operation.

Dad took her death very hard and brooded over it for a long time. He tried very hard to carry on for the children’s sake. Mother was buried at Harlem, Montana, 5 March 1935, on plot 16 at the Harlem Cemetery.

Emerson, married Sarah Marie Alderson, 19 August 1934 at Chinook, Montana. She was the daughter of Arthur Alderson and Gladys Violet Alderson. She was born 6 March 1915, Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada.

Though Dad did not go to Church very much, he had a strong testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel. In the fall of 1935, he sent his youngest son, Walter Ilith, on a mission. Walter Ilith filled a two year mission and enjoyed it very much. He gained a lasting testimony of the Gospel and had many trying experiences in the mission field that proved to him the power of prayer and showed him a great deal about human nature. He learned much about other churches. He was given an honorable release and returned home in the fall of 1937.

In the spring in 1938 he went to helping Dad on the home place. They farmed the place together. In the Spring of 1938 Walter Illith also met Lois Chapman, a daughter of Early Loyal Chapman and Thea Sirene K. Haugen, born 7 March 1919 in Pierce Co., North Dakota.

They were married 30 July 1938 at Zurich, Montana. Later on 8 February 1939 they were sealed in the Temple at Cardston, Alberta, Canada.

They continued on farming with Dad on the old home place for several years. They farmed together until the spring of 1943, when Walter Illith moved to Malta, Montana and rented a place.

Then Dad and Hugh ‘Francis’ farmed together and took care of the old place.

Dad often went back to Idaho Falls and Shelley and spent a few weeks with old friends and relatives. He enjoyed himself so very much on these trips, renewing old acquaintances and visiting. He liked to visit Emerson Rowley, his nephew, at St. Ignatus, Montana. Grant Rowley, another nephew, and Lucy Stout a niece, at Bynum, Montana. He enjoyed his association with them.

Dad died of heart ailment, 14th of March 1948 leaving five children:

Hugh Francis, Harlem, Montana
David William, Gridley, California
Verda May Murphy, Zurich, Montana
Emerson Adis, Eureka, California
Walter Ilith, Fairview, Montana

(These residence were at the time of his death, and some of them have changed)

Hugh Francis, Kalispell, Montana
David William, Bountiful, Utah
Walter Ilith, Eureka, California

Mother and Dad never gained any earthly wealth. They raised a family to man and womanhood and gave them the right precepts of life. They taught them the truth of the restored Gospel, as brought by the Angel Moroni and received by the Prophet Joseph Smith. For these teachings, we children will ever be grateful to our most wonderful parents.

I pray always that we may be found worthy of their teachings and association and that when this span of life is over we may rejoin them in that family association for all time.
