Zina Newell Basic life Information

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

When Zina was two years old her family moved from Salt Lake City to Orem and then in 1915 they moved again to Huntington, Utah. For several years she returned to Orem, living with relatives, to pick fruit. After ten years of trying to make a living farming the poor land in Huntington, her father took a job in the Wattis coal mine. The family then moved to Helper, Utah after her father had a sick spell and lost his job. Later her father and brother were killed, within two weeks of each other, in the Storrs mine in Spring Canyon. The family then moved back to Orem, where Zina had to work to help support the younger children so they could attend school. While working in the Pleasant Grove Cannery she met and fell in love with Artemus.

About Doris (Sherman) Machovsky: “she was one of our fun cousins. I would go down there to see her in Huntington and play games. My sister, who is two years younger, would go with us. We would usually play night games: follow the sheep, and things like that. Very bright red hair: very pretty lady. The last time I saw her was at Uncle Artemus and Aunt Zina’s (Zi-na) 50th wedding anniversary (note: 1978). It seems that after she married and moved away to Salt Lake we lost track of her. I always thought she married well.” Extended Sherman Family: “it seemed like they all got along beautifully. Della was so nice and helpful to everyone. Gene was very good to Grandma Larsen. They all really liked him. I think it was after Della’s death that Gene stayed up with her one summer in Orem where she lived and fixed her roof for her. He was quite the handyman: could fix anything. He was a very good carpenter and was a mason. He and Aunt Della always got along really well. Della always worked really hard. My sister really liked him: he came over to my parents house and did a porch for my mother one time. My sister would sit and talk with him, and they had a good time. I remember Aunt Della’s funeral: the family were all in the front row. All of the family had red hair. No, they weren’t real church goers: the children were baptized and that was about it. Some became more religious as they became adults, but others did not. Della went to church, but Gene didn’t. It doesn’t matter though: they were all good people, and that is what matters most. My parents went to church often, but they weren’t real religious by any means. Grandpa Lionel Sherman was the ‘head honcho.’ He was the one who gave us all nicknames. He gave Doris the nickname of “Muff,” and yes, she hated it. He was the one who called me “Kelly,” and I’ve always gone by that. My aunts and uncles all had different names as well: it gets so confusing! Robert Clinton was “Clinton.” Aunt Vonda was called Ann. She died of Kidney Failure. It was so sad: her daughter had just gotten married, and then that happened! Isabella Fontella was Fawn. She was at her kitchen table, and had a heart attack and later died. Agnes, who married Glen Jones, was called Nan. My mother’s real name is unknown: some of her records contain Rhea Kate, and others go Kattie Rhea. I have never seen her birth certificate. You can go with which ever one you want. Dad was Ray Larsen (note: James Ray Larsen). He died from black lungs: had worked in the mines for years. He worked in the same mines his brother and my grandfather died in. Growing up, Mom said everyone got along well and loved each other. Grandma Agnes would make us sugar cookies whenever we went down to see her. That was a real treat: we didn’t get to see her very often. They lived just outside of main street in Huntington. Grandpa would take us out to the cows. We also went into the granary. I was so sad when Grandma had her stroke: she couldn’t talk after that! They were both really nice and good to us. Gene gave his children different names like Grandpa. I think he called Bob ‘Boy.” Wilford was Dude. I remember Charlie (Warren), who was around the same age as Uncle John (Sherman), would be out into the front yard and get into fist fights. Grandma was not happy! They weren’t arguing, they were just having fun. All of the six Sherman girls got along beautifully: loved each other very much. Once a year, the mines would close down, and we’d go camping at places like Hiawatha and places like that. We’d be singing and all that. Aunt Fawn’s daughter, Shirley, had to be locked up in the car because she would go sleep walking. I always liked Grandma Larsen. She would come down and do our chores for us whenever we visited. Doris and I, along with others, would go up to he place in the summer when we were growing up and pick cherries and berries and other things. Sometimes we made $16. That was good money back in those days! She died just before she was 102 years old. It was so interesting: she’d be out in her house picking berries up into her 90s. My son would lose her: she’d go and sit down on her chair after she was done picking her berries, and you couldn’t see her head over the chair! I’ve never left Carbon County: lived in Price, Hiawatha, etc. My husband died three years ago at the age of 96. I’m 88 years old, and my family won’t let me drive anymore.

Life timeline of Arthur Artemus Newell

Arthur Artemus Newell was born on 27 Sep 1905
Arthur Artemus Newell was 9 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.
Arthur Artemus Newell was 24 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.
Arthur Artemus Newell was 34 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.
Arthur Artemus Newell was 40 years old when World War II: German forces in the west agree to an unconditional surrender. The German Instrument of Surrender ended World War II in Europe. The definitive text was signed in Karlshorst, Berlin, on the night of 8 May 1945 by representatives of the three armed services of the Oberkommando der Wehrmacht (OKW) and the Allied Expeditionary Force together with the Supreme High Command of the Red Army, with further French and US representatives signing as witnesses. The signing took place 9 May 1945 at 00:16 local time.
Arthur Artemus Newell was 52 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
Arthur Artemus Newell was 59 years old when Martin Luther King Jr. received the Nobel Peace Prize for combating racial inequality through nonviolence. Martin Luther King Jr. was an American Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement from 1954 until his death in 1968. Born in Atlanta, King is best known for advancing civil rights through nonviolence and civil disobedience, tactics his Christian beliefs and the nonviolent activism of Mahatma Gandhi helped inspire.
Arthur Artemus Newell was 67 years old when Munich massacre: Nine Israeli athletes die (along with a German policeman) at the hands of the Palestinian "Black September" terrorist group after being taken hostage at the Munich Olympic Games. Two other Israeli athletes were slain in the initial attack the previous day. The Munich massacre was an attack during the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, West Germany, in which the Palestinian terrorist group Black September took eleven Israeli Olympic team members hostage and killed them along with a West German police officer.
Arthur Artemus Newell was 84 years old when The tanker Exxon Valdez spilled 10.8 million US gallons (260,000 bbl; 41,000 m3) of oil into Prince William Sound, Alaska, causing one of the most devastating man-made maritime environmental disasters. A tanker is a ship designed to transport or store liquids or gases in bulk. Major types of tankship include the oil tanker, the chemical tanker, and gas carrier. Tankers also carry commodities such as vegetable oils, molasses and wine. In the United States Navy and Military Sealift Command, a tanker used to refuel other ships is called an oiler but many other navies use the terms tanker and replenishment tanker.
