John Rowley and Sarah Wright Family Messenger

JOHN THOMPSON ROWLEY AND JANE SMITH FAMILY:
Reported by David S. Rowley and wife, Selma

In the February issue of the paper we made a mistake and would like to correct it now. It is from Irene Jones Peterson: “Gordon, since Sept. 1957 has been with the U.S. Army, first at Fort Ord, and now at Fort McClellon, Alabama. He and Margaret Ruth Lewis were married at Rudley, (reported Rigley) Branch. Gordon was home for Christmas the went to Alabama, Jan. 3. Ruth finished her school term at Rudley College and joined him, March 6th. They are now living at 2202 Gurnee Ave., Anneston, Alabama. There is a small branch of the Church at Anneston, with a new chapel, so Gordon feels right at home. Ruth is soon to join the Church and she sings in the choir! Irene Peterson goes on to say that our little paper is a job and a wonder and that she enjoys it so much and likes to hear how everyone is doing and where they are. May this reporter add that it is a joy to get letters with news in them. I sure wish everyone would follow suit.

Our family surely has good news. In the past 3 ½ months, David and I have become grandparents three times!! On February 9, 1958, our son Jack and his dear wife, Barbara presented us with a grandson. He was born at Victorville, California and weighed 6 lbs. 7 oz. They had him blessed in March 2nd and gave him the name of Jeffery Ray Rowley.

Just 15 days later our daughter, Gayle, who is married to Franklin Dee Wareham gave birth on February 24,  to a lovely little girl. She weighed 6 lbs. 13 oz. her daddy blessed her on March 30, and gave her the name of Linda. Gayle and Franklin went through the Salt Lake Temple on June 7, 1957.

On May 12, 1958, our son, Wayne and very good wife, Annette ??rgeline McAuther, went through the Salt Lake Temple and two weeks later on May 27 a son was born to them. He weighed 6 lbs. 11 oz. His daddy blessed him, July 6, and gave him the name of David Scott Rowley. Both these last two babies were born in Salt Lake City at the L.D.S Hospital.

I forgot to mention in my last report that on December 19, 1957 Gayle went through the Temple and did the endowment work for her sister, Celia Phyllis, who died Sept. 29, 1956 of injuries suffered in an auto accident.

On Monday, June 2, 1958, Fred and Harriet Rowley, Mrs. Sarah Rowley, Mrs. G. A. (Pe??l) Rowley and myself, (Selma Rowley) went to Provo to attend the funeral of Ethel May Bedkett Rowley Beardall. She died on May 29, in Provo.

It was nice to see family members again and chat with them. Seems as if that’s the only tine we get together is on one of these sad occasions. Ethel Jane has a lovely family as does Ruth. Reginald Rowley, who is Aunt Ethel’s second son, and the baby of the family, flew out from Annapolis, Maryland, where he is an instructor at the Naval academy, for his mother’s funeral. He sure looks like the Rowley’s. he is married and has two children.

Aunt Mary Ann Rowley Jones and her daughter, Luella were there, also Manuel, Luella’s husband. Winifred Rowley and his wife, Addie were there. They have five babies now and live in Provo.

Luella and Manuel’s daughter, Rebecca, (Mrs. Neil Adendauh) had a little baby boy (I don’t have the date), at the Dragerton Hospital. He only lived 1 ½ hours. They named him Louis Lee.

William W. and Olive Louis Jones finally got a girl. She was born, May 1, in Salt Lake City and the named her Elizabeth Ann. Such a lovely old name. this young lady is bound to be spoiled and why not, she has five older brothers.

Lenna and Waldo Bushnell and their children came over to Spring Glen to see their mother Mrs. Sarah Rowley, for Easter. Grandma Rowley (Sarah) went to Moab last month (May) to help her daughter, Celia Anderson, who had been in the hospital.

1897 – I went over to Aunt Emma Hague’s (Emma Elizabeth Webb) and took my music lesson. I went over to Grandma Sperry’s (Emily Louisa Miller) and then up to Burton’s. In the afternoon Mrs. Burton and I went down town, called at several stores and then we went over to the drug store. Oscar (Alfred Oscar Lunt) treated us to a glass of soda water, from there we went over to the Excelsor and then up to Moore’s, we invited her to come up to the house with us. Later Oscar came up, he brought us some complimentary fans. Mrs. Moore and Flora (Moore) came up and the three spent the rest of the afternoon with us. Oscar and Mrs. Moore left but Flora stayed and had supper with us. About sundown I started for home. Della Kendall walked outside of town with me. Just this side of Perkin’s I met Ada and Annie Salisbury and they walked almost home with me.
