David Lamond Scott - History

Contributor: Kahtain Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

DAVID LAMOND SCOTT David Lamond Scott, was born May 28, 1918, at Wapello, Idaho, to David Moroni Scott and Marinda Vilate Hargraves Scott. I spent my early childhood in Wapello. When I was about 7 years old our family, consisting of my brothers Harris, Durwerd, and Rayo and Mother and Dad, moved to Bancroft, Idaho. Uncle Newell’s and Uncle Clyde’s families also moved there. We all lived more or less together. We were just one big happy family, all boys and one girl (Iris). She was Uncle Clyde’s and Aunt Eva’s daughter. There weren’t many L.D.S. people there at the time. When these 3 families moved in, a ward was organized. It was just a branch before. It was called Kelly or Toponce ward. We went to school in Kelly. We made our living milking cows and raising beets. We lived close to the Portneuf River and had meadows we cut for hay. The high school and grade school were all on the same grounds. The teachers lived in cottages on the grounds. All the school’s supplies and toothbrushes were furnished by the school district. We walked or rode horses to school. In the winter, Harris drove a sled. Later the school district had a school wagon or sled and Uncle Clyde drove this. We were just genuine boys. We swam in the stream, rode horses, and worked with our folks. At the edge of the farm were foot hills, and we’d swipe Mother’s wash tub and take it up the hill and ride it back down in the winter. We swam in the nude as we were all boys, and we’d either learn to swim or drown. We were pushed in and of course (I’m sure) the older ones would help if they saw we were in trouble. When meal time came we ate at whichever house we were at. I was in the 6th grade when we moved to Shelley, Idaho. Here we farmed again. We went to Jamestown (Jameston) to grade school and church. My Mother and Sister Sarah Harker wrote many plays and pageants while living here. They were put on in the ward and stake. I went to Shelley High School. I never received my High School graduation Dipolma as they were remolding the High school and the school records were stored in the shop building and it caught fire and the records we destroyed. If we went into town we had to walk. We walked to the school activities and shows. A quarter went a long way back then. Uncle Clyde and Uncle Newell and families move back here too. And once again we were all together. In the spring of 1937, we moved to Pingree, where Harris now lives on the farm. We farmed again, and Harris and I went out and thinned and topped beets for other farmers. We also pitched hay. I drove a wagon or sled (bus) for the school in Pingree. Here I met Ruth Hawkes, and we were married April 19, 1940 in the Logan Temple. We leased the farm from the folks and bought the cows and farmed and drove the school bus for one more year. I worked in the spud houses in the winter. Here we had four children. In the spring of 1947, we bought 40 acres in Riverside from Wilbert Cammack. Harris had bought the folks’ farm. Again we made our living milking cows and farming. We also leased a farm from a widow neighbor (Olga Fullmer). I worked in the spud house in the winter or the Alfafa Seed house. We had four more children. They learned to work hard too. One morning we decided to try farming in the desert. This was west of Moreland on Leslie Williams’ ground. We lived or camped out there. Donald and Sandra wore irrigating boots right along with me all summer. We raise mostly spuds and hay. Donald and Sandra worked hard that summer. We didn’t get all of our spuds out this fall before they froze in the ground. We moved back in on our home place in Riverside. That winter I worked in the Seed House and in the spring I started working at the Bingham Co-op (1958). I worked there for nine years. November 6, 1964, my name was drawn from the Bingham Co-op employees to be one to receive a trip to the Hawaiian Islands. We were to meet the plane in Portland. I never dreamed this could ever happen to us. This trip was sponsored by the Co-ops over the West Pacific. As a result of the different Co-ops meeting certain goals in sales. Ruth and I went on an airplane. It was loaded with co-op people from the West. We drove out to Portland, visited the Zoo there and went to a fish house for supper. We were gone ten days. When we came back to the Seattle airport it was fogged in and we had to fly around for some time. We went over into California and back to Seattle. The fog had lifted enough so we could land in Seattle. While in Hawaii we visited and went through the Hawaii Temple. We drove clear around the island on Oahu. We visited the Sugar Cane Factory and some of the cane fields and pineapple farms. We also visited the first dairy there, the Meadow Gold Dairy, it had just started. We took a motor boat tour through Pearl Harbor and the ride on the boat was nice. We went into a submarine; they sure don’t have much room in them. When we arrived home about 6 P.M., we learned that our barn and hay stack had burned on Nov. 8'h about 3:30 or 4 P.M. Everything was taken care of by the kids, neighbors and Elders' Quorum. Donald and the boys had taken the milk cows to the Sohm’s place about a half mile from our farm and were milking them there. We milked them there until we were able to remodel another building into a milking barn that had not burned. We also had to build new corrals since most of the other ones had burned with the barn. I have been a ditch rider for several years for three different canals. The American Falls and Springfield canals while living in Pingree, The slough and Danskin in Riverside. December 13, 1965, we moved to the store on the Riverside townsite and took over the J. C. Market and renamed it Scotties Market. It was also a Texaco Service Station. I continued working at the Co- op for about 3 months. We bought the store from Verl and Shirley Jensen. It was done in a very secret way. No money exchanged hands. They took our farm and machinery and cows and so much a month for the groceries, and we took over the remaining equity. In the spring of 1977, we finished paying for it. It is September 1977 now and we are trying to remodel the store. We were affected some by the Teton flood when the dam broke on June 5, 1976. I worked in the Sunday School in Pingree and Riverside. Was the Elders Sec. working with Robert Stevenson and Ken Christiansen. I also served as the Secretary for the Stake Seventies. I also worked with the Scouts. We’ve always raised a large garden, fruit and berries. The kids all helped with the irrigating, gardening and harvest. I’m thankful for the privilege my folks gave me to come to this earth and for the gospel in our lives. It is true and if we live the teaching and keep the commandments, we have everything. While working for the co-op I made a trip back to Kansas to the oil refineries with other employees. I also traveled out to Boise and Portland for the Co-op’s business interests. My hobbies are mostly fishing; I also like to watch sports. Most of our family trips were fishing trips. (out to the lost river area) Sometimes some of the kids would spend the night sleeping in the car. I’d get up early milk the cows then head out to spend the day fishing. Then we would come home and milk the cows again. On one of our trips to Yellowstone Park, we spent the night at one of the camp grounds by the river. Some of the family slept in the car, and I slept under the stars. During the night a bear decided to come for a visit looking for a midnight snack. Another camper and I ended up chasing the bear out of the camp ground. All we had on was our underwear and I’m sure this helped the bear to decide to leave. We have had a good life. Note from Mother (Ruth) - To you kids, I want to say you had a very special father and provider.
