Sarah Ellen Carter Boyle

Contributor: dgmurray Created: 3 years ago Updated: 3 years ago

Sarah Ellen Carter Boyle Autobiography for her 45th wedding anniversary I was born in Santaquin, Utah on February 8, 1871 in a little old log house built by my father who was Edwin Lavan Carter and my mother was Betsey Larson. I was the eldest child of a family of eleven.... I was doing very well in school while we lived in Santaquin. But my father did not like the cold winters there so in 1883 lie decided to find a warmer climate so headed for Arizona. We had a fine trip and had favorable weather all the way. We enjoyed the trip very much. We first stopped at Snowflake, Arizona but did not like it very well so we went on to the Gila Valley, stopping at Pima. Here the schools were so poor that I knew almost as much as the teacher. When I left Santaquin I was in the fifth grade, or what they called the fifth then. When we arrived in Pima the highest grade they had was the fourth so I had to go back to it. Later they provided better teachers and I went on further. The first school house was a little log one but was soon replaced by a nice big one built of white rocks. I was always a healthy child and liked very much to climb trees and wade in the brooks which was about the best entertainment we had then. After living in Pima for a few years we moved to Mathews Ward at Mathewsville which was located where Glenbar is now. Very few people lived here and walking was the only means of transportation. Father homesteaded a farm of about sixty acres conjointly with his brother William. Me being the oldest girl and no brothers it fell my lot to be father's helper as well as mother's. Here we went to school in a log school house but had a very good teacher by the name of John Nash. I met my husband [Edwin Henry Boyle] at his sister's home who happened to be my Aunt Louisa, she being married to father's brother. I met him in the spring of the year and we were married, the next September 9, 1889, at my home. His father, Henry G. Boyle performing the ceremony. All my relations and also all of his that lived there at this time were there, that being quite a few. We first lived at my home for awhile then went to live with his. There our first child [Lavan] was born.... Then we build us a little home of our own and moved to ourselves.... My husband then homesteaded some land near here and we moved our house on to it.... Here is where our first girl was born...and we named her Marcelle. Also here came to us a pair of twins [Bessie and Burtis].... I don't know what I would have done had not my sister Emma and also some of my other sisters came to stay with me to help me with the babies.... At this time our land wasn't very productive for lack of water so Ed got work at Canannea, Old Mexico, so we moved down there for about a year. While we were living at Canannea. Elmer became terribly sick. There were not any doctors except one who didn't know very much. He said that he had Scarlet Fever but thru observation of late I feel that he had infantile paralyses because he was left with his right side partially paralyzed, his face and all. I feel that he was healed thru faith and prayer alone. After this we moved back to the Gila Valley. At this time my brother-in-law and Ed went in partners farming but weren't very successful for the river came up so high it covered their grain and alfalfa with mud. The ranch was called Butter Milk Point.... From here we moved to Globe where Ed worked on the roads. After living here a year we moved to the Mesa. We had two wagons a buggy and saddle horse to convey us there. The boys were able to find work here and Ed bought some cows and moved on to a dairy ranch...then we lived in town awhile then back out to Lehi. We rented two different ranches here before we finally decided to sell our dairy cows and started buying a farm of our own, where we now reside.... Now our family are all married except Herschel and Raymond, who are living with us at the ranch.

Bessie Ellen Burris was 20 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.

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.

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.
