Illa Hawks Williams story

Contributor: crex Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

I, Ila LC Hawks, daughter of Joshua W. Hawks and Margaret Hunsaker, was born December 6, 1891 at Escalante, Garfield Co., Utah. I was blessed Feb 4 1892. I was baptized at Honeyville, UT June 27th 1899. Married to Charles Fredrick Williams Dec. 27, 1912 at SL City courthouse by Judge Eldrige. Endowed June 24, 1924 in SLC Temple and sealed to Charles that same day. My earliest remembrance is of a long journey we were moving from Escalante to Honeyville then, finally arriving at my Grandmother Hunsaker's home, a most magnificent place, it seemed to me. I was filled with awe at the beauty of the inside-beautiful parlor, thick carpet, big piano, cushioned chairs, ornaments and pictures. Then we moved to a rock house by the Salt River and lived there two winters. In back was the ruins of an old mill where we used to play (Honeyville). When I was six I started school which was held in the top part of a store. At this time we were renting because every spring, we moved out to Pocatello valley and our farm. So the next two years we lived in another house in Honeyville and I went to a different school. My mother had boy babies and I always wanted a girl baby. How I loved babies! - A trait that always stayed with me; even when I stared to teach school, it was the younger ones I wanted to be with. I still think children are just as interesting as grownups. After school was out in the spring, we went as usual to the farm, sad we never lived at Honeyville again; but spent our winters in Portage in order that we children might go to school and bought a home there. Life on the farm was very quiet, and when we grew older very lonesome, for the valley consisted of farms miles and miles apart. So most of the time we children were by ourselves and had to create our own amusement. We rode horses and looked forward to the 4th and 24th of July for celebrations. Our hard working parents were good religious people, and sacrificed and did all they could for us children. We were taught early in life to pray and have faith. For example, we always prayed for a baby sister and a piano and an upstairs and eventually we did have all those things. Also I was thrown from a horse and was unconscious for 2 days and nights and I believe it was through prayer that I was blessed with no lasting injuries. My mother and father had fairly good singing voices and to us, their songs were most perfect and beautiful. They seemed to have unlimited stock of songs. My dad put such feeling in his singing. Many people have made the same remark. My father also played the violin a great deal in the evenings. During my childhood and youth I had almost perfect health. Of all the childhood diseases I had only mumps and whooping cough. In those days, there were many diseases and no medicine. One summer when I was 10, every member of my family except mother and I was in bed with typhoid fever and we had our hands full nursing them all. We all worked on the farm there was washing dishes and milking the animals, churning and making butter. Cooking and at harvest time for large groups of hungry men. We girls could cook a good balanced meal by this time, I was 11. My eldest and favorite brother was called on a mission. while he was gone, we children and parents prayed night and morning for his success and safety. Never was there such peace and joy in a home during this period. I'll never forget when he came home how handsome, clean and good he looked. We were so proud of him and so happy. I believe a mission in a family benefits each member so very much. It proves the divinity of the work to them and arouses their interest. I was 14 and graduated from 8th grade, But because there was no higher schooling in the area, I had to retake 8th grade and the teacher gave me extra work. How I longed to go to Logan or B.Y.U. Finally after that year and much coaxing and pleading with my parents, they made arrangements form me to go to Logan with some neighbor children, who ere older than I and I was to pay my share and live with them. The next year these neighbors were not returning to Logan and I couldn't stay as I did not have a chaperon. I again begged and pleaded for my parents to let me go to get a higher education. August came and they still hadn't made up their mids and school was only a few weeks away I was still praying and hoping. Then something wonderful happened which opened the way like magic. An important letter came from Joseph F. Smith In it he said I had been recommended as one possessing special qualifications for Sunday School work and a special course in that subject was being given that fall at BYU. I would accept it as a missionary call, etc. This was wonderful for me as it was an answer to my prayers, I had an opportunity to go back to school, it was a honor. The Sunday School board gave me $100 to help me pay for expenses and my father brought me to Provo on the train. I was very serious about my studies and earned a Kindergarten Diploma as well as a Normal one. I had several suitors that asked for my had in marriage, but i had other things on my mind. I taught school in Portage from 1912-1914 and in the meantime I was married and we bought a little home on 5th west, later we bought a better one on 4th west and 2nd north (269 N. 4th West). Her son, Carroll relates that Ila met Frederick at a roller skating rink. Frederick was an accomplished skater and swept Ila off her feet. There was also talk of a kiss on the back porch that set her mind to marry him. Frederick was not LDS so it was said that as a wedding gift, Frederick was baptized a member as a wedding gift to Ila. In time, she had 2 little boys, Alva Berlyn who died when he was 21 and Carroll Denon. She wanted more children, but due to her thyroid condition, she could not have any more and had many miscarriages. She was told her thyroid problems could be helped if she would drink beer. Which she did and even made her own beer, But there was a problem because they had to figure out how to make the beer just right with out the tops blowing off. This went on for years. She gave it up when it became a "problem", reports her son. She loved to teach, work on her genealogy and was a librarian. She passed away April 13, 1979 and is buried next to her husband in the Provo City Cemetery in Utah.

Charles Frederick Williams story

Contributor: crex Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Charles Frederick Williams. Charles, was name after his father and Frederick after King Frederick the great of Denmark. was born May 31, 1887 in Provo, UT to his parents, Charles Eli Williams and louise Nelsin Dahl Christnesen. As he grew, the family grew also. He was Joined by 5 brothers and one sister, Florence. He had a cheerful and happy disposition and a keen sense of humor. His ambitious qualities always kept his hands busy working at one thing or another. His inventive mind was always searching for the most scientific way of doing things, of building beautiful crafts. In his later years he and his wife produced clocks, quilts. pillows, rugs and many, many other creative articles. He received his education in the Provo Schools. At the age of 10 the family moved to Mammoth, where the father, Charles Eli, found work in the mines owned by Jessie Knight. As Summer was turning to golden Autumn one year the family moved back to Provo so the children could attend school. The snow fell early just for the children it seemed. Little Fred's mind was alert with one of his ideas.He was going to make a sleigh. With a little help from his father and mother he built a beautiful sleigh with metal runners. He immediately gained popularity with every boy and girl in the town. So he shared his creation proudly--making sure, of course, that his own brothers and sisters got their share of the rides. Fred continued to grow until he reached the height of six feet, three inches. He must have been ahead of his time as a teenager, for he loved cars, taking them apart and putting them together again. He shared this love with a close and dear friend, Monte Young. Together they owned the first automobile, a Buick,(year abt 1911) in Provo. He worked as a mechanic his whole life. I'm sure they gained immediate popularity at this particular time also. Fred also loved sports, the outdoors, the mountains especially, and hunting and fishing with his good pals, Monte Young and Dr. Thome, a dentist. It was said that he could have caught a fish in a bathtub. Once again, he was in popular demand. This time for his skill and know-how in fishing and hunting. Even his wise wife said he carried it to the extreme. Oh yes, his Wife.., I must back up a little- It seemed at an ordinary dinner invitation that he had accepted one Sunday evening,he had arrived! His heart skipped a beat as he set eyes for the first time on a lovely dark-haired girl, who had also been invited. Illa Hawks, he thought, was the most beautiful girl he had ever seen. And he wasted no time to ask this young girl from Idaho to go skating at the Eldred Skating Rink which was on University Avenue. So the next evening, his popularity showed through again. Even though it was Illa's first time on skates, she was in her glory, as she glided gracefully around as long as Fred held her. For he was none other than the floor manager, himself, the expert skater. One evening some time later, the romance blossomed as they shared their first kiss--a very special kiss. He often referred to that kiss as the one on the back porch in the moonlight by the washing machine. Shortly after his baptism into the church they were married and in due time, two special spirits brought a little Heaven into their home. Fred was the kind of father who always supported his family in the development of their talents and spiritual growth. He was never too busy to listen to their problems. This was his life. The pride he took in his wife and children and his home. Nothing was too good for them. He spent his life working to accomplish this goal. Carroll Denon, the 2nd son inherited his ingenuity from his parents and had 10 special spirits of his own. All of which he loved and enjoyed. And they in turn loved him. Even the littlest of them would take him by the hand, trying to help him around. Their first son, Berlin, who died at age 21 has been waiting to welcome his father home. His father, ( we, His grandchildren. called him "Bamp") left his earthly home Sunday to go to his eternal home on high. Those of us that remain will always cherish his memory and wait to join him there. Fred must have known for it seemed the last time he held his sweetheart's hand, that he didn't want to let go. He told the doctor that he hated to go because Illa needed him., "She wont know when it's time to turn out the lights." He never lost his great concern for his family.

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.
