Annie Blake Carter January 4 1884

Contributor: crex Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

I was born on a ranch in Center Creek, a small Mormon town fives miles southeast of Heber City, Wasatch County , January 4 1884. The seventh child in a family of twelve children. My parents were William Barrow and Mary Lake Blake. Mother just added a B. to her name when she married. I had four brothers and two sisters older than myself, four brothers and one sister younger. Father and Mother were hard working people and taught their children to be the same. The children's names were David John,William James, Sarah Emily, Isaac Brigham, Joseph, Mary Jane, Annie, Samuel Henry, James Theophilus, Benjamin Catherine Ruth, Horace Charles. I broke my arm three different times before I was six years old. This made me very nervous. So I did not start school I was almost nine years old. Sam and I started school the same year, and we were always together through our school days. I spent hours watching my big sister Sarah. If she were sewing I would sit by the sewing machine and watch her every move. She sometimes spread a quilt on the grass under a big willow tree, by the brook that ran in front of our house. It was quiet and she would study away from the pranks and noise of many young brothers ans sisters. I would take my doll, a needle and cloth pieces she had given me, cutting out a dress for my doll or to read my book. She would help me sew, or tell me a story or help me to read. From 6-9 I was rather lonely,as Jane thought she was to old to play with me. Ruth being to young. If I played with the boys I was always getting hurt. Mother often took me with her as she visited a neighbor or a friend. Sarah was always kind and good, but was away from home a lot. I spent long hours roaming over the big fields gathering wild flowers or sitting in the big willow tree trying to sew or mend. I distinctly remember putting 22 patches on an old dress. In those days girls wore long black stockings. I had some that had wholes in the knees and feet. I found some old underwear of one of my big brothers and sewed the rib part of the legs where I had cut the wholes out of the knees. I would also cit the feet out and make new ones from the old underwear The underwere was gray and my stockings were black. So I wore my mended to play in and to church. Our shoes at that time buttoned to our ankles and our dresses came to the top of the shoes. When Mother got around to washing them she laughed until she cried. Then she took me on her lap and told me it was wonderful for a six year old to mend her clothes and stockings, but you must mend black stockings with faded gray underwear. A dress that needed 22 patches was not worth mending. She said she would save them to Show Grandma Lake and sister Sarah. I started school in Oct.1892. Just three months before I was nine years old. I was tall for my age,so I felt out of place among the small children. Our school house was one large room. With four rows of desks facing south and two rows for the big kids. They were divided by a pot-bellied stove in the center of the room. Coming in the south door first you cam to a bench, with a bucket of water with a long handled dipper. Next there was a big box of wood for the stove. In the north of the building was a stage or a stand about two and Half feet tall, where the teacher had her desk and we had to recite our lessons There was a man for the older students and a women for the younger ones. The school was lighted by Kerosene wall lamps. We din't have grades, but went by books,from the primer to the fifth reader. There were 15 of us. I remember once we each gave a dime and bought the teacher a book. I started School at Center Creek and finished at Vineyard
