Daniel John Atherley biography

Contributor: dayle Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Daniel John Atherley was born at Goshen, Utah County, Utah 23 November 1870, to pioneer parentage of Daniel Samuel Atherley who came from Arnold, Nottinghamshire, England and Ida Amalie Ljoungberg from Copenhagen, Denmark. His father was a adobe brick maker. when he was just a boy his mother left him and went to California. Dan became very self sustaining at an early age. He gained a strong desire to care for his family and did so in an extraordinary way. He wanted a special life for his children and he gave every ounce of effort to see they had every advantage in life. They spent most of their lives as farmers. They worked for other large operations in farming and leased some land until they were able to purchase a fruit farm in Provo, Utah. Daniel built his family a large, beautiful home on this farm. While living here, he worked in Bingham, Utah, in the mines and he also owned a skating rink in Eureka, Utah. One special time remembered by their daughter Reva was the rock chicken coop they built. Her father hired all the children to help and then wrote them a check on a piece of wood. He had a great sense of humor which his children delighted in. Brig remembers the hunting and fishing trips they would be able to sneak in at various times. Probably most of the fishing trips were in Provo Canyon as they transported fruit to Heber to sell. They would hitch up the team and have their family vacation. It was great fun to sleep under the stars and talk and enjoy each other's company. On one such occasion, they were under the wagon because of rain. Somehow the wagon rolled and pinned Daniel's neck against the tongue. They were able to get him freed, but Brig said it was funny it didn't kill him. The life of Dan and Agnes was not like most people. As their children married, they didn't go their separate ways. They became an integral part of the family concerned. Most to their children lived on the farm at various times. When Dan and Agnes decided to try and dairying and mining at Eureka, Utah their children also became a part of these endeavors. Dan built a small home in Eureka which had a large front room, kitchen and three bedrooms. This home was always filled to capacity. This home became Loren and Graces and it still stands in Eureka, Utah. They built another home next door which had a front room, kitchen and three bedrooms. Next came a home for Hugh one door north of the original home. Ted bought a home across the street, and Brig bought one through the block. Glen and Reva lived in Mammoth and Boyd and Dora had a small farm in Provo for a time. They later went to take care of the ranch. Leonora and George were young children going to school. Folles and Truman lived on the ranch at various times, but settled in Salt Lake City. Many of his growing years were spent in Salt Lake City with a young friend of his. They slept under the early building construction of the State Capital. They were fortunate enough to have a cook in one of the nearby homes who would sneak food out to them in the evenings. Much of their monetary means earned in the Tintic District. They were very involved in the community in Eureka. Some of the many businesses they were involved in include ranching, roller skating rinks, dairy herds, a store, a garage, mining leases, and moonshine. Some of his grandchildren remember their grandpa would have them hold out their hand and he would either spit on their hand or give them a silver dollar. He later died of Miner's Consumption

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).
