1902 (Wednesday) – We stayed home all day.

History: Grace Davis

David William married Lillian Alcorn in Chinook on 14 July 1927. They were married by the Branch President, W.B. Peterson.

In November 1928, one of Grace’s cherished dreams came true when Verda May, her only daughter, received a call to go on a mission. Her heart sank, however, when she found out that Verda May had been called to the Central States — which included the South. She had had a friend who had gone to the South, contracted Malaria fever and had suffered the rest of her life from it. Verda May finally convinced her that she’d be all right. Verda May’s faith was such that she knew she’d be all right as her call had come through inspiration and the Central States was where she was needed. Grace, however, was never entirely convinced until Verda May came home again — as well as when she left.

Shortly after her return from her mission of twenty months, Verda May started going with Bert Lund Murphy, who also had just returned from a mission to the North Central States Mission. They were married 17 December 1930 in the Alberta Temple at Cardston, Canada, by President Edward J. Wood. On 13 October 1935, they were set apart as Presidents of the MIA and served until 6 April 1941, when Bert Lund was set apart as the Branch President of the Harlem Branch.

On 21 December 1933, Emerson Adis, Hugh Thompson, and Grace left Montana for Idaho Falls. This trip was always thought of as taking a honeymoon, as they never had one. They arrived in Idaho Falls on the 22 or 23 of December. Emerson Adis let Hugh Thompson and Grace take his car and he stayed in Idaho Falls. As Emerson Adis recalls, his folks truly acted like newlyweds. As he thinks back over the years, this occasion has always given Emerson Adis a glow of satisfaction and a good feeling, as it was the only time that Hugh Thompson and Grace were able to get away together for any length of time and enjoy themselves, free from worries of making a living.

Emerson Adis married Sarah Marie Alderson, 19 August 1934 in Chinook, Montana. She was the daughter of Authur Alderson and Gladys Violet Demon.

Grace’s health kept getting worse and finally the doctor told Hugh Thompson that she needed an operation for the goiter, and that she didn’t want it done in Montana and if she wanted to go to Idaho, for him to let her go. So about the middle of February 1935, Hugh Thompson, Walter Ilith, and Verda May took her by car to Idaho Falls. She lay in the hotel room for about two weeks while the doctor waited for her to rest and get ready for the operation. On the last day of February, she was operated on while Walter Ilith and Verda May were sent to Shelley, Idaho to get Hugh Thompson’s sister, Annie (Harriet Ann ‘Annie’ Rowley). After the operation, she had to have a second one for she began bleeding internally. Her strength was not sufficient to stand this strain and she passed away at 9:00 am the morning of 1 March 1935, which was Aunt Annie’s Birthday.

Funeral services were held at the Wood’s Mortuary. Grace had always wanted to be among her friends and relatives in Idaho. Montana was never really her home. A large crowd came to show their love and respect for her at the services. Her body was held and interred in the Harlem Cemetery, Plot 16.

History: Grace Davis

When school opened in 1924, Emerson Adis and Verda May went into Chinook to go to High School. Verda May was in her third year and Emerson Adis was in his first. Walter Ilith went to a country school called North Yantic, which was near their home. Earl and Vera Murphy, and Emerson Adis and Verda May rented a small house and batched. Verda was unable to start at the beginning, as Grace needed her to cook for beet men. She was six weeks late, but made her grade.

On 9 September 1925, Hugh Francis married Erma Thornton. The ceremony was performed by the Justice of the Peace, Mr. Harold Ziebarth and they moved in with the family as Hugh Francis was helping his father on the farm.

In the fall of 1925, Verda May started High School in Chinook, but in the latter part of October she suddenly took ill. After spending a couple of days at home, she was taken to the Sacred Heart Hospital in Havre and spent a day under observation. On 13 October 1925, she was operated on for appendicitis by Dr. J. S. Almas. She was in the hospital for three weeks as stitch abscesses developed. Just before Christmas, Grace, who was so homesick, decided to go to Idaho for a visit. It was decided that Verda May would go with her. They arrived there two days before Christmas, just in time for Grace to attend her Grandfather’s (Reuben Coles) funeral.

Verda May came home in April 1926, in time to help her sister-in-law with the family’s move to the Charles Christensen ranch, Southeast of Zurich. Soon after, however, they found that they could not get along with the landlord, so they packed up again — moving to the Roy Colgrove farm. Grace missed the short time they lived at the Christensen place, as she was still in Idaho. She came home in June to the second new home. They rented this place for two years.

Moving again!! It seemed as though moving was all they every did — but this time Hugh Thompson bought the 160 acres of very good farm land known as the Jake Everett place, and that was the last move for them. They moved there in the spring of 1927, after Hugh Thompson had built another log house.

This home put them in the Harlem Branch and the church house had been placed on the northwest corner of the farm before Hugh Thompson bought it. It was just across the ditch from their orchard and garden. This made it very convenient to attend all services, conferences, and recreational activities which were held. They enjoyed this very much and being that close, they did the janitorial work as well.

Once more Grace had the opportunity of becoming active in the Relief Society. She didn’t spare herself in trying to make a success of bazaars, plays, dinners, singing groups, compassionate services, visiting the sick and needy, taking fresh vegetables, fruit, baked goods, and whatever she had to share with those who were in need and less fortunate. She was very handy with her hands and did much knitting, crocheting, and embroidery work. One thing she did love to do was to set quilt blocks together and quilt them. She did many. She was a counselor to the President, Gladys Johnson with Maude Munsee as the second counselor, for about seven years. She was set apart 5 February 1928 and served until her death in 1935.
