John Wright and Sarah Wright Family Messenger

JOHN THOMPSON ROWLEY & MARY JANE SMITH
Reporter, David S. Rowley Jr. and wife, Selma

A Farewell Testimonial in honor of Rodger Park Rowley prior to his departure for the North Mexican Mission was held Sunday, October 12, 1958, at Spring Glen, Utah. Roger is the son of George A. and Pearl Snow Rowley and a grandson of John Thompson Rowley. Roger graduated from Carbon College last spring. I have a very special respect and admiration for Roger. Always there is a cheery smile and wave of acknowledgment whenever and wherever you meet him. He writes home that things are primitive where he is located. Cool oil lamps are used for light and when going into the homes one is given blankets in which to wrap up for warmth. In all these inconvenient and unfamiliar settings, there has not been one word of complaint or dissatisfaction from him. His only concern is for the health of his dear Mother.

Arthur Jones, a grandson of John Thompson Rowley was operated in for an eye cataract on January 6, 1959. Dr. Palmer says the operation was a success and Arthur is fine.

Louis Lockwood, husband of Vera Jones, granddaughter of John T. Rowley, is in Long Beach California taking special training for a month. He is employed at Hill Field, Ogden.

On June 26, 1958 Don and Carry Rowley got their second child, a girl, born in Japan where Don is a test pilot in the Air Corps. Carry reports that she is able to hire a maid in Japan to help her with the two little girls, Kimberly and Konstance, for $15.00 per month. They plan to remain in Japan for the next 3 ½ years. Don is the son of Franklin I. Rowley and a grandson of John R. Rowley.

A letter from Aunt Florence, widow of Franklin I. Rowley, who lives in Bell Gardens, California states that her daughter, Leone, has a little girl who is 6 months old December 26, weighs 19 pounds and has two teeth. The baby’s name is Machell. At Thanksgiving, Aunt Florence had six of her children and their families with her. Ora and her husband, Red Frazier, Joan and her husband (don’t know the name), Leone and her husband (don’t know the name) and baby, Irvin, Stanley and Jane. Also her sister, Dolores Mecham of Las Vegas, was a dinner guest. She writes she could not get into the Christmas spirit because it seems like the 4th of July down there with roses and poinsettias blooming. She is work director of the Relief Society and that keeps her busy.

Sarah Rowley, widow of David S. Rowley, left December 3, for Vallejo, California to be with her daughter, Mrs. Jeanne O’Neal who had a baby girl named Sara Michelle, on Dec 28, 1958.

The family of David S. Rowley, Jr. were home for the holidays. They included: Wayne and Annette and son, David Scott, from Logan; Dee and Gayle Wareham and daughter, Linda, from Canoga Park, California; Jack and Barbara Rowley and son Jeffery from Victorville, California; and Miki Adele who is still at home. It was the first time in two years they were all home together.

We have a few news items from Alfred D. Peterson and Irene Jones family.

Jacqueline (wife of Vernon Alfred Peterson, whom he married in Ireland 3 April 1957, they had a baby boy, Samuel David Peterson 10 January 1858) got so homesick she just had to go home for a visit. Ruth Ann (The Alfred Peterson’s youngest daughter) went with her — so Alfred and I are back where we were 29 years ago — just the two of us. It is odd not to have the house full and a bit lonely. Ruth Ann written that she is having a grand time.

Gordon’s wife, Ruth, has a baby girl, born 4 December 1958 at 10:29 p.m. The baby’s name is Audrey Lynne. Gordon is in Germany and Ruth hopes to go to him in March or April.

We are trying to get hay planted. We have had no rain so I have had to irrigate. Alfred and I leveled about four acres that didn’t water good, last week. This week we will have to plant.
