Stephen Ekins Redd

Contributor: 8diggin Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

Stephen Ekins Redd was born November 26, 1923 thirteen months after Wyman Hardison Redd was born. He and Wyman, so close in years and in companionship, seemed more like twins. They used to play together and walk together holding hands. When some older boys stopped and teased Wyman, Stephen came to his rescue with, "Don't you hurt my little buvver." Marie sewed cute suits for both boys. Jay built a fence around the "Dirty House," which was just south of the store, to keep the children from wandering off. Stephen, when he was three years old, got out of the yard one afternoon and wandered down the street. Jay, who was sitting at the counter in the store, looked out and saw Stephen hanging by his fingers to a culvert across the street, just minutes from being sucked under by the swift current. Jay ran across the street and grabbed the child into his arms just in time. He, being very upset, spanked Stephen and took him home. Jay, normally quite ruddy of complexion, was very pale. Another experience that same summer frightened Marie in a similar way. Stephen had again gotten out of the yard. Marie saw him across the street hanging between the hind legs of a horse. She feared she would never get across the street in time, but she did. She rescued Stephen and took him home. Later Marie and Jay felt these incidents had been a forewarning of what was to come. In October of that same year, Stephen, just shy of his fourth birthday, became very ill with what was thought to be stomach flu. Marie was very worried about him. Stephen, seeing her tears, asked, "Mama, are you laughing?" Marie told him she was, which contented him. When she told him they were taking him to the hospital in Moab, Stephen, in mature perception, told her if they took him there, he would die. Jay and Marie took him to Moab to the hospital as there were no doctors nor facilities in Monticello at that time. Marie wanted to stay with Stephen at night, but they would not allow her to do so. After a couple of days and Stephen was still sick, the hospital staff admitted to Jay that the doctor hadn't examined him yet. They advised Jay to take the boy home. Before they could get away, however, Stephen showed signs of worsening. Very shortly he was dead. Nothing had been done for him at all. Jay felt certain the doctor, a heavy drinker and a woman chaser, was negligent in this case, and this negligence caused Stephen's death. They carried the dead body back to Monticello in the car; Marie said she couldn't look at him. She said that when Wyman found out, he lay on the floor and screamed. Jay and Marie never completely got over this terrible experience. Although, Jay tried not to dwell on the memory of it, Marie mourned it the rest of her life.

Life timeline of Alice Marie Redd

1895
Alice Marie Redd was born on 5 Jul 1895
Alice Marie Redd was 10 years old when Albert Einstein publishes his first paper on the special theory of relativity. Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. He is best known to the general public for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2, which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation". He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect", a pivotal step in the development of quantum theory.
Alice Marie Redd was 19 years old when Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg, were assassinated by a Yugoslav nationalist named Gavrilo Princip in Sarajevo, sparking the outbreak of World War I. Archduke Franz Ferdinand, Archduke of Austria-Este was a member of the imperial Habsburg dynasty, and from 1896 until his death the heir presumptive (Thronfolger) to the Austro-Hungarian throne. His assassination in Sarajevo precipitated Austria-Hungary's declaration of war against Serbia, which in turn triggered a series of events that resulted in Austria-Hungary's allies and Serbia's declaring war on each other, starting World War I.
Alice Marie Redd was 34 years old when Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player to hit 500 home runs in his career with a home run at League Park in Cleveland, Ohio. George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball (MLB) spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand as of 2018. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.
Alice Marie Redd was 44 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
Alice Marie Redd was 50 years old when World War II: Nagasaki is devastated when an atomic bomb, Fat Man, is dropped by the United States B-29 Bockscar. Thirty-five thousand people are killed outright, including 23,200-28,200 Japanese war workers, 2,000 Korean forced workers, and 150 Japanese soldiers. Nagasaki is the capital and the largest city of Nagasaki Prefecture on the island of Kyushu in Japan. The city's name, 長崎, means "long cape" in Japanese. Nagasaki became a centre of colonial Portuguese and Dutch influence in the 16th through 19th centuries, and the Hidden Christian Sites in the Nagasaki Region have been recognized and included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Part of Nagasaki was home to a major Imperial Japanese Navy base during the First Sino-Japanese War and Russo-Japanese War.
Alice Marie Redd was 58 years old when Jonas Salk announced the successful test of his polio vaccine on a small group of adults and children (vaccination pictured). Jonas Edward Salk was an American medical researcher and virologist. He discovered and developed one of the first successful polio vaccines. Born in New York City, he attended New York University School of Medicine, later choosing to do medical research instead of becoming a practicing physician. In 1939, after earning his medical degree, Salk began an internship as a physician scientist at Mount Sinai Hospital. Two years later he was granted a fellowship at the University of Michigan, where he would study flu viruses with his mentor Thomas Francis, Jr.
Alice Marie Redd was 69 years old when The Beatles make their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, performing before a "record-busting" audience of 73 million viewers across the USA. The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they became widely regarded as the foremost and most influential music band in history. Rooted in skiffle, beat and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented with several musical styles, ranging from pop ballads and Indian music to psychedelia and hard rock, often incorporating classical elements and unconventional recording techniques in innovative ways. In 1963, their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania"; as the group's music grew in sophistication, led by primary songwriters Lennon and McCartney, the band were integral to pop music's evolution into an art form and to the development of the counterculture of the 1960s.
Alice Marie Redd was 78 years old when Vietnam War: The last United States combat soldiers leave South Vietnam. The Vietnam War, also known as the Second Indochina War, and in Vietnam as the Resistance War Against America or simply the American War, was a conflict that occurred in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia from 1 November 1955 to the fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975. It was the second of the Indochina Wars and was officially fought between North Vietnam and the government of South Vietnam. The North Vietnamese army was supported by the Soviet Union, China, and other communist allies; the South Vietnamese army was supported by the United States, South Korea, Australia, Thailand and other anti-communist allies. The war is considered a Cold War-era proxy war by some US perspectives. The majority of Americans believe the war was unjustified. The war would last roughly 19 years and would also form the Laotian Civil War as well as the Cambodian Civil War, which also saw all three countries become communist states in 1975.
Alice Marie Redd died on 20 Jun 1985 at the age of 90
