History of Charlene Lamb Cornwall, written by herself, 1964

Contributor: koand Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Charlene was born to Jesse Don Lamb and Bertha Archibald Lamb on the 8th day of February, 1934. I was born in the town of Tremonton (Utah) in the Valley hospital. I was the third child to be born in the family and the first girl. My parents had eight children: five girls and three boys. Their names are Vernon, Lamont, then me, Joyce, Joan, Raejena, Don Jesse and then Donna. She was the small little caboose and she was little. She only weighed 2 lb. 4 oz. when she was born. I was blessed on the 5th day of May 1934 by my grandfather, Don Rufus Lamb. I was blessed in the Plymouth, Utah church. I was baptized in the Logan temple, on 14 March 1942. On the way over to the temple, the roads were slick and we could not make it up the hill by Biglers so my mother and my grandmother got out of the car and got on the back of the car so we would have weight on the back, and over the hill we went. Arthur J. Osmond baptized me and Joseph P. Hinck confirmed me the same day. I learned to walk in the turkey camp while my mother and father herded turkeys. When I was six years old, I went to California with my grandmother and grandfather Lamb. I really had fun. We left Plymouth on February 12th and returned on the 22nd of February, 1940. I started school in the fall of 1940?. I had the same teacher from the second half of the second grade to the seventh grade. She was Mrs. Nola Starr. My first grade teacher was Mrs. Brown. The first half of my second grade I had Mrs. Long. In the last week of school I had an opportunity to go to Cincinnati, Ohio, with my girlfriend Geraldine's parents. We went to see her mother's sister Lillie. We left on May 20, 1946 at 5:30. This trip and my trip to California made it so that I had been in 16 states. I was cheerleader in the sixth and seventh grade at Garland, Utah. I went to the temple and was baptized for the dead 30 times. I was chairman for the refreshments for our junior prom when I was a junior in high school. I started to go with Stuart that year and how proud I was when he called me for a date. I had some fond memories in the old home we had before my father decided to build just to the side of it. One experience I shall never forget is when the oven exploded on me and when Lamont, my brother, broke the hot water pipe and hot water was going all over him. Stuart decided to get married. We got married in the Logan temple on the 22 of November, 1951. It was a bad day and Stuart and his parents were coming over to the temple and slid on the icy roads. I was waiting over at the temple when the man came and told me. Our love must have been strong because we went through the temple and Stuart had a broken arm and a mashed leg. We had our wedding reception the same night. We didn't have a honeymoon at the time, but we went places together to make up for it. We had one planned but the wreck put the stops to that. We were married by Brother El Ray Christensen, President of the temple at the time. We first lived out to the Blue Creek store that Stuart's father owned at the time. Father Cornwall lived with us in the summertime and raised turkeys. We ran the store in the wintertime for him. Albert Abiechier, a good friend of ours, spent most of his evenings down to the store watching T.V. We enjoyed having him down evenings. Dad Cornwall was good to us the two years we spent with him. Then along came our first little bundle of joy, Dustin Stuart Cornwall. He was a long baby. He weighed 7 lbs. and 14 oz. He had white hair and blue eyes. Yes, our prayers had been answered. Dad Cornwall enjoyed feeding you Dustin. He would take you on his lap and feed you. He thought you were a good little eater. You sucked your thumb until you were 3 years old. Then, you got it in the car door and the nail came off and you never sucked it again. The first winter we took Dustin to more shows than we have been to since. We decided to move to Tremonton, Utah in the spring of 1955. Albert Abiechier borrowed $2,000 and dad borrowed us $1,000. We borrowed the money and bought our first home with 10 acres of ground. We both worked hard to keep from losing our first home. Stuart went out on construction and I tried to take care of the chores at home. Along in about 9 months came you, Kayln. You were a cute baby. You had dark eyelashes and dark eyes. You had olive complexion and weighed 6 lbs. and 5 oz. We thought that we really had the world by the tail with two sweet little children. Then we found out we were going to have another one. In December 14, 1956, along came our dear sweet Kim. You were a cute baby with your natural curly hair and sweet little smile. You weighed 7 lbs. and 6 oz. Three years later came you, Shane D. Cornwall and whoa what a baby you were, 9 lbs. and 6 oz. And those eyes of yours were all I could see the first time I looked at you, dark as coal, big as dollars. Dad and I were not too much to go to church the first 8 years of our lives. Stuart was away from home working a lot. I tried to go once and a while. Then, when Dustin got 8 years old and time to be baptized Stuart realized that if he didn't come and get on the ball someone was going to do his priesthood work for him so he baptized Dustin and went to church. I was the sports director in the Tremonton Third Ward at the time. He was made First Counselor in the Elders Quorum. He then, along with me, started going to the temple and started to really enjoy our work in the church. Stuart baptized Kayln and we are trying to serve the Lord as well as we know. Travis Miller Cornwall was born to us on the 27th of April, 1963. He was also a big baby. He weighed 9 lbs. and 13 oz. He was ready to eat beefsteak because I just could not get him filled up. We all enjoyed him because there had not been a baby in our house for 4 years and that was something different because every two years there had been. We all spoiled him. Stuart and I started going to the temple and my how we enjoyed this. We really saw how the priesthood really made a different life for us. It is something real important to every member of the church to have the experience of how much difference a member of the priesthood can make in home life when they are active in the Lord's work. Stuart was a bud and when he started to be active, he blossomed into a beautiful rose. You could just see the spirit of the Lord in him. And we were both much happier doing the Lord's work. Travis is now 10 months and he is just starting to walk. Dustin is 11 years old. Kayln is 9 years old. Kim is 7 years old. Shane is 5 years old. And Stuart and I are just getting older and enjoying life. The children are taking genealogy and they needed my life history. It is the 7th day of February, 1964. We moved into a new home on the 20th day of December, 1963. We will all have memories of the little house we first lived in. My Uncle Clea Lamb died on the 23rd day of January, 1964. Stuart is working out to Thiokol Chemical Corp. He has been out there for 6 years. I have a testimony of the gospel. I have had my prayers answered many times and I know that David O. McKay is a true prophet of God and that Prophet Joseph Smith was also a true prophet of God. I pray that God will continue to bless our little family. And I pray that we as a family may live worthy of His blessings. May we all strive to make our goals in life what He would like them to be. Bless our home that there will also be peace and plenty and always be room for some more. I pray that my children will live close to their Father in Heaven and pray to Him in need. I will close now and continue on as my life moves on. (retyped by her daughter, Kerrie C. Allen, at a sibling reunion on October 12, 2013)

Grandma Cornwall's house

Contributor: koand Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Us grandkids loved to spend time in Tremonton at grandma and grandpa's house. Grandma loved to feed everyone and I have such warm happy memories sitting around the table with my sisters and cousins while grandma cooked us bacon and "pop-it" eggs (aka over-easy eggs). Us kids loved to play around the farm and we always had so much fun. Grandma would buy us kites and we would fly them out in the pasture. Other times Grandma would fill up a kiddie pool with the well water and we "play" in it but it was so cold! I also remember Grandpa being very strict with us kids to not go near or play in the irrigation canal. He told us alligators lived there and would eat us. That scared us enough and we stayed away. Grandpa was always so kind to us, and one of my most favorite things is when he would take us up to have lunch on top of the hay stack. He'd hoist us grandkids up on a rope (which I remember being a little scary) and we'd eat Mickey D's hamburgers together. We were up so high (or it seemed so when I was little) and it was really fun. I remember one time I was reading a book to one of my little sisters in the sitting room (I think I was around 10 yrs old) and grandpa Cornwall sat and listened, and when I had finished he told me with tears in his eyes how he hadn't learned to read until he was much older. And how proud he was of how well I could read. Grandma and Grandpa's house was filled with so many warm happy memories, good food, the gospel of Jesus Christ, and love for all who entered.

Life timeline of Charlene L Cornwall

Charlene L Cornwall was born on 8 Feb 1934
Charlene L Cornwall was 6 years old when The Holocaust: The first prisoners arrive at a new concentration camp at Auschwitz. The Holocaust, also referred to as the Shoah, was a genocide during World War II in which Nazi Germany, aided by its collaborators, systematically murdered some six million European Jews, around two-thirds of the Jewish population of Europe, between 1941 and 1945. Jews were targeted for extermination as part of a larger event involving the persecution and murder of other groups, including in particular the Roma and "incurably sick", as well as ethnic Poles and other Slavs, Soviet citizens, Soviet prisoners of war, political opponents, gay men and Jehovah's Witnesses, resulting in up to 17 million deaths overall.
Charlene L Cornwall was 24 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.
Charlene L Cornwall was 31 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.
Charlene L Cornwall was 45 years old when Jim Jones led more than 900 members of the Peoples Temple to mass murder/suicide in Jonestown, Guyana, hours after some of its members assassinated U.S. Congressman Leo Ryan (pictured). James Warren Jones was an American religious cult leader who initiated and was responsible for a mass suicide and mass murder in Jonestown, Guyana. He considered Jesus Christ as being in compliance with an overarching belief in socialism as the correct social order. Jones was ordained as a Disciples of Christ pastor, and he achieved notoriety as the founder and leader of the Peoples Temple cult.
Charlene L Cornwall was 46 years old when Mount St. Helens erupts in Washington, United States, killing 57 people and causing $3 billion in damage.

It is 50 miles (80 km) northeast of Portland, Oregon and 96 miles (154 km) south of Seattle, Washington. Mount St. Helens takes its English name from the British diplomat Lord St Helens, a friend of explorer George Vancouver who made a survey of the area in the late 18th century. The volcano is located in the Cascade Range and is part of the Cascade Volcanic Arc, a segment of the Pacific Ring of Fire that includes over 160 active volcanoes. This volcano is well known for its ash explosions and pyroclastic flows.

The Rwandan genocide, also known as the genocide against the Tutsi, was a genocidal mass slaughter of Tutsi in Rwanda by members of the Hutu majority government. An estimated 500,000 to 1,000,000 Rwandans were killed during the 100-day period from 7 April to mid-July 1994, constituting as many as 70% of the Tutsi population. Additionally, 30% of the Pygmy Batwa were killed. The genocide and widespread slaughter of Rwandans ended when the Tutsi-backed and heavily armed Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) led by Paul Kagame took control of the country. An estimated 2,000,000 Rwandans, mostly Hutus, were displaced and became refugees.
