Reported by Lorin P. Rowley:
Ray and Marilyn Rowley Jaeger arrived in Salt Lake City, April 16, 1958 from Oceanside, California on a short leave. They returned to O’side on May 3. Ray is in the Marine Corps at Camp Pendleton, California.
Lorenzo D. (Ren) Rowley, of Fillmore was a visitor at Lucy M. Rowley’s home in Salt Lake City on May 2, 1958. Uncle Ren, as we called him, lived with us in Mt. Home for a short time, leaving there in 1917, after serving time in the Army. This visit is the first we have seen of him since then. He enjoyed visiting with him.
May 2, 1958, Smoot and Blancye Rowley of Bynum, Montana arrived at Mt. Home. They came to Utah to attend the funeral services of a friend, Lee Jesson of Altonah, Utah. May 3, Smoot, Blanche, Edwin, and mother and others went to Mt. Home where the services were held. They returned home the same evening.
Before leaving Mt. Home they went out to the old home where we lived from 1910 to 1953. Mother moved to Salt Lake leaving the house and buildings locked up. They were in bad shape, partially wrecked by vandals and animals. They did get a few final pictures and things before leaving for Salt Lake. They got here at midnight. By 10 p.m., other folks out there had phoned that the house and all had burned to the ground at about 8 p.m. We all felt very badly about it, and mother was especially upset. It is not know just how the fire started.
Lorin and Lucy Rowley Wilcox left St. Helena, California to visit her son Harry Scott and family in Bynum, Montana. They arrived in Salt Lake on June 23, to visit her mother before going on to Fillmore for the family reunion.
Mother and I drove to Fillmore early Saturday morning, June 28, to attend the reunion. We enjoyed it very much. We enjoyed meeting all the fine people there. We regretted having to leave early to come back home. Ralph came from Duchesne. There were Ralph, Lucy, Mother and Myself of our family there. Lorin and Lucy left early in the afternoon to go on to their home in St. Helena, California. They arrived home late Sunday evening. They were all okay.
I was very much satisfied with the progress of the family tree. With one small exception, my part of the tree was complete. All mine and my family group sheets are in. all you other folks, my brothers and sister, please try to get your family sheets in, so by the reunion time next year we will have the tree growing good.
