History: Lillian Alcorn

Before we left Gridley, we had received word that David’s body was being sent home and we could plan a funeral. After we moved, we notified the Army and shortly after we had settled in Eureka, David’s body arrived. We moved in July of 1950 and David’s body came just a few weeks after. His body was escorted by a very nice military escort. We had a lovely funeral and because we didn’t know too many people we hadn’t expected many to attend, but there was a nice group of people there. The main speaker was Lowell Thompson, who has proven to be a life-long friend ever since we met him in Eureka.

David was buried in a lovely cemetery (Ocean View Cemetery) with full military rites. The cemetery was not far from our home in Eureka. There was a lovely view of the ocean from his plot and it was a restful place.

In August, we were attending MIA as usual and enjoyed the activities that it offered. The branch usually had a dance after class time each week. This one Tuesday evening in August Dave and I had danced a fast member. I was a little out of a breath when we finished, but nothing too unusual. I felt tired as I had worked hard that day and we decided to leave MIA early. When I got to the car I was having pains in my chest and by the time the family got there the pain was getting quite severe and spreading down my left arm. I told Dave that we had better hurry and get home as I didn’t feel at all well. I frightened Dave and he drove as fast as he dared. On the way home we passed the General Hospital and the pain was getting so bad that I could hardly stand it. Dave decided we had better stop at the hospital and find out what the trouble was. When we got there he jumped out of the car and came over to my side and opened the door to help me. He reached for me and I remember saying “Oh, Dave, I’m gone!” Then everything went black. I went limp and slipped right through Dave’s arms and skinned my knees on the gravel. In the meantime, Dave sent Marjorie and Hugh into the hospital for help. They were so excited that the attendants couldn’t understand them so they just followed the kids out to the parking lot. They got me into the hospital and into bed and contacted the doctors.

Dave called the chapel and President Walter Bingham, the Branch President came and took the children home. The doctors told Dave that I had had a heart attack, a coronary thrombosis. They also told him that the first crises would pass in 24 hours. I was in an oxygen tent. If I survived the first 24 hours, the next crises would be 72 hours. If I passed that I would probably survive.

An unusual dream came to me during this crucial time. I dreamed I saw my mother in an old-time buggy. She seemed to be very happy and was going someplace singing. I didn’t know just where it was she was going, but she was singing. I wanted very much to go with her and held out my arms to her. She told me that I wasn’t ready to come and that I was needed at home. I remember being very disappointed because I had to stay behind. Shortly after this dream I passed the 72 hour crises and was on my way to recovery.

Ralph and Clayton had been working in Montana at the time of this attack, and I asked Dave not to send for them, but of course he did. They came home as fast as they could. Dave also contacted my sister Melva and she came up for a few days to help out at home. Elder Delbert L. Stapley was in Eureka attending a district conference while I was still in the hospital so Dave arranged for him to come and give me a blessing. I appreciated this very much.

History: Lillian Alcorn

The winters were very severe and oft times the temperature went down to 40˚ below and would stay that way for several nights and would rise only a little in the daytime. Most of the time when it was really cold the air would be quiet but there were times when the wind would blow fiercely and sometimes to gale proportions. This would pile up the snow in great drifts and make it almost impossible to go anywhere for a while. But we always had plenty of wood or coal and would keep the house warm. It was so dreary on these cold windy days with the windows making such a tumult of noise and draft. It made one really feel how small and helpless men are in the face of the elements; and how much we depend on our Father in Heaven for our well-being and protection. How little we appreciate the many blessings we have from day to day.

When Dave and I were first married we made several resolves. One was that we would always try and express our appreciation to our Heavenly Father for our many blessings. At times we weren’t as faithful in this as we should have been but we did try. Another resolve we made was that there would never be any foul language, talk or jokes that wouldn’t be fit for anyone else to hear used in our home. We both worked in the Church. I was still an MIA Counselor and Sunday School Teacher. Dave was the Boy Scout leader and an MIA Counselor and a Sunday School Teacher. Dave was ordained an Elder by John G. Allred n on 7 August 1927.

I always enjoyed Church and the inspiration it gave me to better living; even the messages from Sunday to Sunday, the Inspiration to do better. The joy one gets out of living and abiding by the principles of the Gospel, the satisfaction of realizing you’ve done something to help someone else. I love the gospel and all it has done for me to help me understand a better way of life. The many things I have to be thankful for and I pray that I’ll always be able to live so that I’ll be worthy of all these many blessings.

By April 1928, I knew our home was going to be blessed with one of the greatest blessings anyone could pray for. We were going to have a baby. We were both overjoyed and we began to plan. Along with the housework, I then prepared for the addition to our family. It gave me so much joy and happiness to know that we were going to have such a great blessing and the months seemed to drag by. It seemed as though September would never get here. I spent much of this waiting alone as Dave worked long hours in the fields and took care of a lot of stock and raised a fine garden.

Dave made arrangements to have Dr. Hoone of Chinook to take care of me and the baby. I went to see the doctor several times during the period of pregnancy. He was there when the baby was born on 20 September 1928. It was a beautiful baby girl, healthy and perfectly formed. We were surely thankful to our Heavenly Father for such a blessing and three weeks later Dave blessed her and gave her the name of Grace Harriet Rowley in honor of both her Grandmothers. Grace after Dave’s mother and Harriet after my mother. She was such a beautiful child and we were proud and were always glad to show her off. I sewed most all of her clothes and she was always very daintily dressed. I think her grandparents were almost as proud of her as we were so she was pretty well taken care of and when I had her out in company someone had her most of the time.

History: Lillian Alcorn

The Rowley’s rented the Colgrove place that spring and moved to Harlem and started to go to the Harlem Branch to Church. I became very well acquainted with Verda, Dave’s only sister. Verda later became the wife of Bert Murphy, the friend who had introduced me to Dave. Verda and I became good friends and I enjoyed her company very much. Dave wasn’t with the family when they moved to Harlem. He was still working on the Morrison & Butler farms. The farms were located about 14 miles southwest of Chinook, Montana and Chinook was about 20 miles from Harlem. It was a large sheep and hay ranch.

Well, My Dad and the boys got the crops in that spring, mostly beets and potatoes. The crop did very well and the chickens started to lay early and that really helped us in paying our expenses. In May, Dave came home from the Ranch and helped his folks put in their crops and then went back to put up hay for Morrison and Butler. While he was in the valley though, we went out on several dates. With Verda and I as good friends and Leonard and Francis who became good friends we had some very good times together.

I had a lot of responsibility caring for my Mother’s family and I learned to be a hard and fast worker in all I had to do. I cooked and cared for the family and our hired help. One time one of the men made a remark in town that all they had for breakfast at Alcorn’s place was a prayer and cereal. The word got back to me so the next morning all I put on the table was cereal and as usual we had our morning prayer. The hired man asked if that was all we were going to eat and I repeated to him what he had told the fellows in town a few days before, that man learned a good lesson and we all had a good laugh.

Dave went back out to the Morrison and Butler Ranch to help put up hay, irrigate and break horses. He stayed there until harvest started then he came back to help his folks harvest the crops and didn’t go back out to the Butler ranch. Dave and I started to go steady and we went most everywhere together. We both loved to dance and spent many enjoyable evenings dancing at Church socials. The winter passed fast. In the spring of 1927 Dad bought the old Sam Taylor farm three miles west of Harlem on the banks of the Milk River. It had an old log house on it with a dirt roof. It was a hard house to keep clean as the dirt kept sifting down through the roof.

In March 1927, Dave and I went to a dance at the Agency and on the way home Dave proposed to me. This marriage proposal was a little different from the usual. Dave said that he thought we could be married in March, but he had to pay his tithing and he didn’t have enough money left. But we did set the date and were married 14 July 1927.
