A Summary of the Life of Mabel Scott

Contributor: Turpinca Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

The following is a typed summary of the life of Mabel Scott that has been in the possession of her youngest daughter, Verna. It is unknown at this time who originally typed it. It has been retyped and submitted by Mabel’s great granddaughter, Melissa Robertson Helton. Mabel Florence Stewart Scott was born November 29, 1886 at Fillmore, Utah. She and one brother, Marion Stewart, who is now deceased, lived with their parents until the age of 5 years when her father passed on. Later her mother married Eligher Allen (Elihu Moroni Allen). They lived in Fillmore for approximately seven years during which time a son was born to them. His name was Floyd Allen, and he is still living at Crystal Springs, California and is the only living relative of Mabel’s. The family then moved to Huntsville, Utah- a small settlement at the time, located in the Ogden Canyon, where her stepfather worked in the timber for two years. Then they decided to move to Blackfoot, Idaho. They packed their belongings and drove their cattle to Blackfoot. They settled in the Groveland area and lived there until the time Mabel met and married Abe Scott on March 12, 1903. At the ages of 16 and 17 they started a life and home for themselves. They lived in the Groveland, Moreland, and Riverside areas for 11 years. In 1914 they moved their family of five children (LaVaun (Vonnie), Elva, Glenn, Leland, and Wayne) to Blackfoot where Abe had a job driving a sprinkling wagon to help lay the first pavement in Blackfoot. In the fall of 1915 he – with his team and wagon- transported a crew of 12 men and their equipment about 15 miles southwest of Blackfoot (which Is now the Rockford/Pingree area) to install the first telephone. They strung two wires and installed a telephone at Charley Fisher’s place which is now owned by Ed Spackman. Another one was installed at the Charley Sjostrum place in Rockford. After finishing that night at 10:30, they had to drive eight miles in two feet of snow. They spent the night at Eseria Wilson’s home in Riverside. The next day they started another route with two more lines, and installed another telephone at the Stephens Bros. store in Rockford which later became the Rockford Merc Co. Two more wires were placed in the Moreland area at Swan Berg’s home, which is the big rock home at the Liberty corner - presently owned by Ed Webb Jr. During this time Abe spotted 40 acres that he liked and bought just west of there. He decided to go back to farming and then moved his wife and family to the edge of the desert where the sagebrush and jack rabbits were plentiful. Through Abe’s and Mabel’s hard efforts, they cleared the sagebrush and lived in a tent that first summer until they could build a two room house. Later, they built on with rocks which were hauled from the Rockford pump (dump?). The country wasn't very well settled at this time, mostly sagebrush which they used for fuel to keep warm with. In 1920 Abe and Mabel gave the country (county) a rightaway (right of way?) for a road along the south side of their property. Two years later the RFD mail route was established and later they were provided with a bus route. They had lived on their place for forty years and have put a lot of effort and hard work into their 40 acre farm. Two more children- Frank and Verna- were born on their farm. In 1959, they retired from their farm and moved to Blackfoot. They somewhat started from scratch in there also, since their place was a remodeled house with no yard. They built their yard together the way they wanted it. Mabel was active in Relief Society and had been a visiting teacher for 44 years. Driving a horse and buggy and sometimes walking to do her teaching. She received a pin for 40 years of service at a Relief Society Co (illegible). She was also active in the DUP (Daughters of Utah Pioneers) although she didn't feel well during the last year. She went on a two day excursion trip to Idaho City, Idaho with the DUP ladies from Blackfoot. She enjoyed the trip very much. She enjoyed flowers and sewing, and later in life she enjoyed fishing. They had many enjoyable fishing trips together. Verna remembers how ‘fancy’ her mother was. She refused to wear pants, even when fishing. They also enjoyed Saturday night dances, which they lived to go to until the time that Mabel started feeling tired all the time. Chet Robertson (Verna’s son) remembers being told that Abe would begin getting ready for the Saturday dances at noon on Saturday, because he loved those dances so much. In April 1964, Mabel became ill with a stroke. She was bedridden for a short time but recovered a little so that her family could enjoy her for a little longer. On August 26th she had a final stroke which put her into a coma. She remained in a coma until September 12, and she passed away at Bingham Memorial Hospital in Blackfoot, Idaho.

Letter from Wayne to Verna and family

Contributor: Turpinca Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Dear Verna, Finch, and Family, I thought that it was about time to answer your letter. Say, that's great about Connie and her husband going through the temple in October and you and Finch will just have to go with them because if you let the opportunity slip by you will never forgive yourself later on. There are so few of those moments in one's life that one just can't afford to pass them up. I'm sending you this family group sheet showing that Thea and I did the folks' temple work for them on March 19th. It was a very heart warming experience. Thea stood proxy for Mom. I did for Dad while they were sealed as husband and wife, then a friend of ours took the position for Dad as I was sealed to them. If you will type your self up a family group sheet, (It has to be typed to micro film it) then have it approved you can take it with you when you go with Connie and John and have yourself sealed to the folks the same day. Oh yes, by the way after you have made yourself a copy, would you please send this one to Carmen as she was good enough to make this one up for us? One more thing, over on the right hand corner you will notice it says family representative, put your name and address there, then when the sheet has been processed after work has been done they will send it back to you. It is especially pretty here this spring, we have had quite a bit of warm weather plus some rain about every 2 or 3 weeks. All the hills and mountains are a beautiful green. It puts one in mind of how the Garden of Eden must have looked. Well my very dear sister I hope all your family is healthy and happy. Thea's mother is still living with Marley in Pocatello. We haven't been able to talk her into coming down and stay with us. I imagine that she will before long though. Well bye now and tell everybody hello for me. Love from Wayne *This letter is post marked 29 March 1971 - San Jose, California

Program of Abram Scott's Funeral

Contributor: Turpinca Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Poem included on the program: The Beyond It seemeth a little way to me Across to that strange country, The Beyond; And Yet, not strange, for it has grown to be The home of those of whom I am so fond. And so for me there is no Death; It is but crossing, with abated breath. A little strip of sea. To find one's loved ones waiting on the shore More beautiful, more precious than before. -Ella Wheeler Wilcox
