History: Lillian Alcorn

We had an auction sale for our farm equipment and stock on 16 December 1944 and then prepared to leave when we received a letter from my brother Leonard Alcorn. He lived in El Monte, California. He said that it was hot and dry down there and if we would come there, he would rent us a house and have a job waiting for Dave. So we decided to go to El Monte, California and we rented the farm to Harold Morris and left Harlem in January of 1945.

My Dad had his big truck, so he consented to help us move our belongings. We put our furniture and all our earthly possessions into his big van and Dave fixed a little camper-style back onto a pickup for the boys to ride in and off we went. We stopped along the way to visit relatives and so it took us several days to make the trip. Dave found some big rocks that we would heat and put into the camper to help keep the boys warm until we got out of the cold country.

The first night we stopped at Dillon, Montana where we rented a couple of rooms in a motel. But poor little Grant got asthma so bad, that we thought we were going to lose him there. We were up with him most all night. We left there very early the next morning. It was 20° below zero that morning as we left Dillon. It gradually got warmer the farther south we came.

The next day we went from the cold north to the town where Dave was born, Shelley, Idaho. His Aunt Annie Robinson (Harriet Ann Rowley) lived there, and she was gracious and hospitable and prepared beds for us with her that night. We also visited with Dave’s uncle Royal James Rowley where our little son, Hugh, kept us all in stitches with his entertaining stories and jokes.

Our next stop was Brigham City, Utah where we stopped with my Uncle Albert and Aunt Dollie Weaver and enjoyed a visit with some of the Weavers who lived in the area. We spent the night there in Brigham City and then drove on the next day until we arrived in Utah’s Dixieland in Cedar City. We spent the night there with Dave’s Mothers sister, Aunt Hannah Foster. We enjoyed ourselves a lot in such a reunion. I had never met them, and Dave hadn’t seen them since he was about seven years old, so we talked until late hours and really enjoyed ourselves.

We arrived on Garvey Blvd. in El Monte, California about three o’clock in the afternoon on a February day in 1945. We called Leonard right away and he told us that the people who had been living in the house we were supposed to rent had scarlet fever and couldn’t move out. But he had made arrangements for us to move in with some friends until we could rent or buy a house. This proved to be quite a problem. There just didn’t seem to be any homes for rent in the area at all. There were quite a few places for sale, but they required larger down payments than we could give. We would look early in the morning and late in the evening trying to find something. It took us about two weeks before we found one we could even buy with our small down payment.

History: Lillian Alcorn

One Halloween Dad took a load of sugar beets, after dark, down along the row of poplar trees hoping pranksters wouldn’t find them, as he had them all loaded and ready to start for the beet dump early the next morning. Well, the pranksters found the load of beets and unloaded them and tipped the box upside down. Dad was really angry, but he never did find out who the boys were.

While we were living here I started to school again in the fall of 1910 at the Thatcher School. The teacher was still Miss Watt. Horrace Miller drove the school wagon and used to really tease. I remember trying to get back at him by sticking my tongue out at him. Later on in the fall we moved on to the Miller place in the Penrose Ward and I changed schools and attended Penrose. We had one room downstairs and one room upstairs in this house.

The Christmas of 1910 I remember we got nuts and candy in our stockings. Leonard got a pocket knife and I got some material for a dress. Shortly after Christmas we moved to Perry, Box Elder, Utah, which was first known as three-mile creek. It is three miles south of Brigham City. We lived in the north room of the old Mathew’s place kitty-cornered from the LDS Chapel. Uncle Albert and Aunt Dollie Cook Weaver lived in the south room. It was while we lived there that my brother Joseph Lorenzo Alcorn was born. He was born 27 March 1911. I attended school in Perry while we lived there.

Shortly after Lorenzo was born dad took my brothers Leonard and Marvin and myself out to Thatcher and left us with Aunt Fannie Nelson. We all came down with chicken pox while we were there so mother, who was to follow us, stayed in Perry with the baby until we were all over them. Then we moved back in the Vance house and I again started school in Thatcher. It was while on this place that dad filed a homestead on 160 acres of land on the bench west of Penrose.

We always looked forward to the times when we would go into Brigham City where our Grandparents lived. Dad had a very spirited little team of horses, Dick and Bess. We had a one-seated buggy without a top but with a large umbrella fastened to the back of the seat. Mother would dress us up in our Sunday best and off we would go. Usually by the time we get to out Grandparents’ home, we were dusty and dirty and looked as if we hadn’t been cleaned up at all. Mother would hold the baby and maybe a smaller child would sit in the seat between Mother and Dad and on our feet, because Leonard and I would sit on the top of the seat with our feet on the seat.

Dad was always singing. The horses were really a snappy little team and fast trotters. Some of the songs Dad would sing were ‘Lay My Little Shoes Away,’ ‘My Old Kentucky Hills,’ ‘My Mother’s Dear Hands,’ and many others. It was about twenty-five miles into Perry and we lived west and north of there.

While we were living on the Vance place in Penrose another brother was born. Harold Archie Alcorn was born 2 Sept 1914. We were always happy when another baby arrived safely and healthy, but I was getting a little impatient to get a little sister. Well, maybe next time!
