Marriage Story

Contributor: Lona Graham Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Andrew Jackson Gannon and Louise Jensen Louise Jensen is the eighth child of John Henry Jensen and Ane Christine Jensen. Louise married Andrew Jackson Gannon 26 October 1915. My first memory of (Jack) Andrew Jackson Gannon was going to Preston Idaho with him and Aunt Louise in a buggy pulled by one horse. They loaded their furniture on a truck and hauled the furniture back to grandmother's home to live. I drove the horse and buggy back to the farm as they came back with the furniture and the truck. Uncle Jack was a clean looking man. He always looked well-dressed. When he went to church he would not talk or whisper, but paid very close attention to the speaker. Uncle Jack went to Wyoming to work for the sugar factory as a sugar boiler. While there he became ill and died. He was shipped back to Weston for burial. I remember that his casket was covered with a large blanket wreath that covered the entire casket. The wreath was donated by the men that worked with Jack in the sugar factory. Aunt Louise was very grieved because of the sadness and loss of her husband. It was a very trying time for Aunt Louise. Uncle Jack died leaving her with one son and before the birth of their second son. Louise lived with her grandmother after her husband died. Andrew Jackson Gannon and Louise Jensen Gannon had the following children: Henry Jensen Gannon born 26 December 1916 married Eunice Farr 19 March 1938 John Andrew Gannon born 14 February 1919 married Nancy May Lank Ford 4 May 1938, died 4 May 1938 married Elizabeth Turner 17 March 1961 Later Aunt Louise went to work for Luther Fife whose wife, Lenora had previously died leaving Luther with five children; Venna Veir Fife born 23 May 1908 died 17 June 1908 Lenora Maurine Fife born 30 may 1909 married Joseph Murland Dahle Luther Lavere Fife born 9 April 1911 married Esther Eliza Bowman Dean Everett Fife born 6 April 1913 married Carrie Elvena Campbell Leo John Fife born 31 January 1915 married Eliza Gertrude Lloyd Alice Gayle Fife born 25 August 1916 married George Leonard Jensen Luther and Louise were married in the Logan Temple on 16 March 1921. They had five children.

Luther contracted and built the Fairview Idaho church house and also many buildings in Cache Valley. When he later moved to Nyssa Oregon he engaged in canal and highway construction. He was a leader where ever he lived and was one of the first builders in the Nyssa Oregon area. Aunt Louise spent much of her time and a great amount of money in genealogy research for John Henry Jensen family. She accomplished a great deal of temple work. In 1965 when her health would not permit further work she turned over all of her work to the family representative of the Jensen family that was appointed at the Jensen reunion held a Lava Hot Springs Idaho. Luther and Louise were called on a mission to the southern states. While there they practically build alone a small church house as the members of the church were not very cooperative. Louise would mix the mortar and Luther laid the stone Louise Frederica Jensen Fife
