History: Lillian Alcorn

The first part of September 1956, we found a very nice house in Bountiful and we decided to buy it. Douglas however, had planned to be married on 21 September, in the Salt Lake Temple and they had already rented their apartment so he stayed there for the next few weeks so he would be closer to work and to Vonna.

Douglas and Vonna were married in a very impressive Temple Ceremony and we now had three of our children married and all in the Temple. They had chosen companions that suited their personalities and we loved each of them.

We lived in the Bountiful 16th Ward with Edgar Barton as our as our Bishop. Shortly after we moved to Bountiful Dave was sustained and ordained a High Priest by the Quorum leader, Owen G. Hughes. He was then made secretary of the 16th Ward H. P. Group. We were very happy with our move to Bountiful and soon found that we had moved into a choice ward. The people were wonderful and very friendly. They welcomed us warmly and made us feel right at home. It wasn’t long before I was singing in the Ward Choir. Throughout my lifetime music has been a source of great comfort to me. I have sung for many years and have participated in a number of choirs and Singing Mothers’ group.

Shortly after Douglas and Vonna were married, I began to teach Vonna how to drive do she could have a little freedom. I soon learned to love Vonna very much. She is very sweet person and seemed to return my love. I shall always remember when she invited me to go with her to a Mothers’ and Daughters’ party. It meant a great deal to me and I appreciate having her close to me. Grace was expecting another baby soon after the first of the year, in January 1957. We were happy for her and also a little concerned. I wanted to go back to Virginia and spend some time with her and help with the tiny one. They were due to go overseas soon after the baby was born and I wanted to see them before they left so with the help of the family we began to plan the trip. However the trip came a little sooner than expected when Don called us on 30 December 1956 to tell us that Grace had had a lovely little girl. The mother and baby were doing fine. They named the baby Lillian Lorraine after her two grandmothers.

With this surprise I left right after the first of the year. I went back on the bus and enjoyed it very much, except for getting pretty tired. I enjoyed being with Grace and the family. They took me to visit many places of interest which had to do with our country’s history. I surely get a thrill out of little Ronnie and the older girls. Ronnie was talking pretty good and I was amazed at how clearly he could pronounce his r’s –especially for a child his age. I spent several weeks with them before coming back home.

I returned home and got back into the routine of things and got caught up on all the things that had gotten behind while I was gone. Then about Mother’s Day, Ralph and his girlfriend, Aleene Sumsion talked to us about getting married. I was very happy about it because I felt that Aleene was a very special person and just the girl to make Ralph happy. They had met at the BYU and Aleene graduated in June 1957 with a degree and a teaching certificate. They planned for her to teach school while Ralph finished his last year at BYU.

We enjoyed living in the 4th ward and we were called to serve in the ward in various capacities. Among them was Sunday School teaching, MIA work, Genealogy work and Dave also served as one of the Seven Presidents of the Seventies. I remember giving a 2 ½ minute talk once in the 4th Ward. I wore a bright red hat with the flashiest earrings I had and a huge bright red flower on my shoulder and as much bright jewelry as I could. Then I talked about dressing properly when giving a talk. I indicated that oft times the things we wear distract from what we are saying. I heard a lot of snickers in the audience but as I talked I started removing some of the things I was wearing. I think my point was well received.

We tried to go to the Temple once a week and to do all the research we could. We also enjoyed being within visiting distance of Marjorie and Dwain and their baby, David. On Christmas Day 1955, all the family except Grace was home for the first time in a long while. Clayton had been discharged from the Army, Douglas had a leave from the Air Force, Ralph had received an honorable release from the mission field, and Marjorie and Dwain came up from Provo. It was indeed a wonderful Christmas that year.

While he was home at Christmas, Douglas met a young lady in the ward named Vonna Ensign. He was quite taken with her but he had to go back to his base. When he was discharged from the service in about March of 1956 he again began to see Vonna and their friendship grew very strong in the coming months.

In February 1956, Grace and Don came to see me and they were prepared to go to the Temple and have their marriage vows sealed for time and eternity and have their children sealed to them. They went to the Temple on 21 February 1956 and Marjorie and Dwain came up from Provo to go with us. President David A. Broadbent sealed them, but before the sealing he drew Don up beside him and asked him if he knew how the Lord created Adam and Don said, “Sure, from the dust of the earth.” Then he asked Don how the Lord created Eve and Don replied, “The Lord took a rib from Adam’s side and created Eve.” Then President Broadbent said, “That’s right Don, and that is where she will always belong, through thick and thin, trouble and sorrow and trials. By your side, hand in hand. Talk things over and work them out together always side by side. Not just tagging along behind or going way out ahead, but side by side.” They were sealed and those lovely little children dressed in white were brought in and sealed to their parents. It was a wonderful experience for us. We are grateful that they have finally had their marriage sealed in the House of the Lord.

I enjoyed sewing and made many dresses and clothes for myself, the boys and my grandchildren. I also made many baby sweater-sets for the newer grandchildren. Marjorie gave birth to her second child, another son on 4 April 1956. This one they named Deon Eugene. My, he was a big baby, weighing 9 lbs. 6 oz. She got along just fine and now they have two lovely little boys.

In June 1956 Clayton was prepared to go on a mission and was interviewed by the bishop of the 4th ward. He received a call to labor in the Northern California Mission field. We were quite surprised that this was his call as we had just moved from that area the year before. He accepted his calling and enjoyed his labors very much. It was a great source of comfort to me to see my sons fill missions and I will always be grateful that they were found worthy to do so.

When Dave was still out of work and the time came closer for us to leave, Marjorie received a phone call from Dwain and he asked if they couldn’t be married in April if both Dave and I could be there. Dave hesitated a minute or two and then he said okay. We were invited to ride back with some friends from Fortuna, Frank Adams and his wife. Marjorie and Dwain were married 7 April 1954 in the Manti Temple.

Now we had both of our daughters, two sons in the Armed Services and one on a mission. This left us with only two boys at home. The house seemed quite empty and we had some time getting used to it. Hugh sort of filled in the empty spot Marjorie had left. She had been a big help to me and we were quite close and good companions. Hugh took her place in the house doing much of the work that she had done for me. And Grant, he was always a source of happiness to us. We did enjoy our little family togetherness, and Dave and I were proud of our children away from home.

In the fall of 1954 Grace and Don came home from Germany. Grace was expecting her third baby in November so she stayed with us while Don went on to his duty station. It seemed good to have Grace and the girls in our home for a little while again. We missed her when she was gone and she was gone so much of the time. Well 7 November 1954 came and Grace gave birth to a lovely baby boy. When Dave called Don on the phone, Grace had asked him not to tell Don he had a son because Grace wanted to tell him. But Dave slipped when he said “He is doing just fine,” in answer to Don’s question on how the baby was doing. Don was very happy to finally have a son and they named him Ronald Steven Smith.

In March 1955, Marjorie was expecting her first baby and I wanted to be there with her. It is such an important event in the life of a woman and Marjorie and Dwain had written and asked me to share it with them. They sent me the money for one way on the bus and we managed the other way fare and I arrived in Salt Lake City about a week before her baby was due. Her baby was a week later than expected but he did arrive on 7 March 1955 and was a healthy perfect little boy which they named David Lenn Judkins.

I returned home and Dave and I decided that we would sell our place and move to Utah. We could be closer to some of our children and close to the Temple and Genealogical Library where we could do research work and temple work. So we found some buyers for our house in Eureka, stored our furniture with some friends, bought a Studebaker Station Wagon and headed for Utah. We got to Marjorie and Dwain’s apartment and spent several days with them. Then we found a basement apartment and moved to ourselves.  Dave found work with the BYU maintenance crew. We stayed in Prove for about two months and the decided to move to Salt Lake City. We found a house for rent in the 4th Ward, Temple View Stake and moved in.

Dave then hired a man with a truck to take he and Hugh back to Eureka to get our furniture. The Eel River was flooding and was doing a lot of damage. It was washing away whole towns and devastating roads and bridges etc. It rained almost all the time they were traveling. They got to Eureka safely and got the furniture loaded and Dave bought a large tarp to cover the whole load. Some of the furniture had gotten wet while in storage and some of it was ruined but most of it came back to us in fine condition.

The Relief Society helped out at home very much, although Marjorie took over the major portion of the work and cooking. Ralph liked to tease her by saying that he lost over 7 pounds with her cooking. While I was in the hospital, which was over six weeks, Marjorie also had to buy Grant’s school clothes. She did a fine job except she didn’t allow for him to grow. By the time school was half over they were all too small and we had to get him some more.

When the time came for me to come home from the hospital the doctors wanted someone to be there with me and to help with the work and worry. So we made arrangements for Grace to come and stay with us and help me. She came from Virginia where they were stationed. Soon after she came with her two little girls, Don was given an overseas assignment, but he was unable to take his family with him right at first, so Grace and the girls stayed there in Eureka with us. After I was back on my feet a little, Grace and the girls decided to find an apartment and she went to work as a waitress in a local drive-in.

To help me avoid having to get up out of bed to answer the phone, we had an extension put in my room by the bed. I read and did genealogy and many other things to pass the long, long days that came with each sunrise. I enjoyed my handiwork at this time, too. I did a lot of crocheting and hand sewing.

It did seem good when I was able to get back to Church after months of staying at home. I was able to work in the Relief Society and enjoyed my associations with the sisters very much. I loved to sing and enjoyed singing with the Branch Singing Mothers’ group. There weren’t many of us but we certainly enjoyed singing and were called upon many times to present programs. I also served as the Improvement Era director in the branch and enjoyed going to MIA with the children. All of them except Grant were old enough to attend mutual and so we usually just took him with us anyway. They had an adult class called the Special Interest class.

We were still living quite close to where Melva lived and I was able to see her more often. Then after Douglas graduated from high school in January of 1952 he joined the Air Force and was stationed at Travis Air Force Base which was in the San Francisco Bay area and we made a trip or two to see him also.

We hadn’t been in Eureka very long when we were able to pick up an old piano for about $27.00 and Marjorie started to pick at it. Years before, she had had a girlfriend who took piano lessons and she learned the notes and keyboard from her. She began to pick out pieces and before too long she was able to play for our family enjoyment. Soon she was also playing in Jr. Sunday School, Primary and in MIA. We certainly appreciated having a piano in the home and music available when we wanted it.

We enjoyed living in Eureka very much. There was much in the mission field that was very good for us and the children. The branch was a closely knot unit because in the whole city if Eureka, there were only about 300 of the Latter-Day Saints. The children had many wonderful close friends. The young people of the branch did many things together. They held Fireside Chats twice a month on Sunday evenings after Church. We also had many Church outings together and had wonderful times.

History: Lillian Alcorn

Dave went to work for Fadel Construction Co., building a flying bomb base up in the San Gabriel Canyon. He worked for them for quite a while. While working for Fadel we received word that Dad Rowley had died, this was in 1948 (14 March). Dave prepared to attend his funeral in Montana. We decided not to take the family and when Dave got to Harlem he was sorry we all hadn’t gone with him as most of the other members of his family had brought their families.

There was a lot of violence and crime in the big city and so many influences that were not good for the children, that we decided it might be best if we looked for a smaller community to raise our family. We put our place up for sale and when it sold we prepared to leave for Gridley, California. We bid our friends goodbye and moved as soon as school was out.

We stayed with my Aunt Jeannette for a couple of weeks while we looked for a place we could buy. After about two weeks we bought the Melissa Clements home just off the Colusa road on Grace Ave. it was about three miles from town. It was much more of the kind of environment that we desired for our children. We made the move with six of our living eight children. David was in the Navy and Grace and Don were also in the Navy.

We sought out the LDS chapel, one of the first things, and enjoyed becoming acquainted with the good members in Gridley. The summer we got there, we were at a loss as to getting an income coming into the home, so Dave took the children and started to pick fruit. They would get up real early in the morning and work until afternoon. They picked peaches, prunes and other varieties. One day, just before school started, Hugh, who was only about 9 years old, climbed a tree to pick some fruit. He lost his footing and fell. He grabbed for another branch as he fell, but it was rotten and it gave away with him. He broke his arm and started school with his arm in a cast.

On Thanksgiving Day, 1948 Marjorie complained of a sore throat. The next day we took her to the doctor and he told us that she had diphtheria. There was only one other case in the whole town and we didn’t know the person involved. The family was put in quarantine for about three months. Dave lived with a neighbor during this time because he had to continue working. Most of the children were with us except for David, who had been discharged from the Navy. He stayed with another neighbor and went to school. We spent Christmas without daddy that year. Dave did come to the door and watch the children open gifts and play with some of them, but didn’t dare come in. Before we could get rid of the bug, both Marjorie and Hugh had to have their tonsils out.

In June of 1949 Grace and Don did have the baby they had waited so long for. It was a lovely little girl. Shortly after that, Don was discharged from the Navy and they came to Gridley to live. They named the baby, which was a girl, Cheryl Jeanette. Don couldn’t seem to adjust to the life of a civilian and he reenlisted in the Army. The Army afforded more time for his family than did the Navy. Just before this time, our son David also enlisted in the Army.

David was sent to Japan in 1949, and was there close to when the Korean conflict started in 1950. He was sent to Korea and we received word that he was missing in action as of 16 July 1950. We were very upset about this report and anxious for him to be found. We didn’t hear any more from the Army until December. In the meantime, another soldier had been reported missing whose family was Catholic.
