Memories of Evaline Smith Haws

Contributor: janebale Created: 4 years ago Updated: 4 years ago

I remember when I was a little girl, I had a little younger brother and his name was Wilford. He was a sick little by and he cried all the time. He had a club foot. I remember once I was pulling on my mother's skirts while she was taking care of him. That's about all can remember about him. I lived in Hoystville. We had a nice little place out there. We had cows; I used to go up in the foothills and help bring the cows in. Sometimes they'd get lost and we'd have to go find them. I was just a little girl then. I know we used to go up on the hill and dig segos and eat them. "you'd eat sego roots like the pioneers?" Yes, like the pioneers. And then we had a nice garden. My father had a nice garden. We raised all kinds of vegetables. We didn't have much fruit. What fruit we had mostly we got from peddlers who would come through . "What about transportation?" Well, we had wagons and horses. We used to go to Coalvillel and Wanship to trade. "What about school, did they have a school up there in Hoytsville?" Well, we had a one room school house. We had a man teacher and a lady teacher. In the smaller grades we would go out in the little room, we called it the " ant" room to recite, and then come back in the room to study. The school was a mile from where we lived. In the winter when the snow was really deep, my father used to hitch up pony to a little cutter and we'd all get in and my brother John would drive. When we got to the school (it was a mile away), he'd turn the cart around and send it back home. My dad would be watching for it. The pony went right home again. We had a church. I know I used to go to primary and religion classes. I think we danced in the church, or somewhere around there. I remember you saying you had an old flour mill. Yes, we had an old flour mill there and a dairy. "And that's where you were baptized?' I was baptized in the Weber River. My sister Gertrude and I were baptized at the same time. "What about the rest of the kids? I don't know. We lived there quite a long time. "Wasn't it a little log house you were born in?" I can't remember. My dad had about 28 acres. Grandfather owned it. He bought it and my Dad worked on it and raised hay and potatoes. When I was a little girl, I used to help him pile the hay. I'd get on the hay rack and tromp it when he'd throw the hay up. I used to help him dig the potatoes. The other boys were away to work or somewhere and I was the only help my dad had. So I would help him. We then took the grain to Wanship and that was south, many be two to three miles, I don't know how far, and then we'd get it ground and take flour back. "What about the other children that are buried up in this cemetery now? Do you know anything about them?" That was Ella, Ruby, and Wilford who are buried out there. "What do you remember about Ella and Ruby?" Well, Ella contracted a cough from a cold. I think she must have had T.B. She died when she was 16. "you didn't have the medication?" No, Doctors didn't know too much then. A poor excuse I think the doctors were then. "They were better veterinarians than human Doctors?" I think so. Anyway, Ruby had measles and bronchitis and that's what caused her death. And all three of them are buried. Wilford was a sick little boy all his life. They are all buried in Hoytsville. "What about your courting days?" Then we had picture shows then. I think they cost a dime. "A dime? Those weren't talking type?" Silent type. We used to have two or three of those in town. I worked in the candy factory about three years. "Where'd you meet dad?" I met Lynn Haws at a Mozart dancing hall. We had a dancing hall called the Mozart where the post office is now. We used to go to the dance every Saturday night. You wouldn't have to have a date then. We'd go for a time. It would cost a dime. I'd go with a group of girls. I met Lynn Haws there one night and he asked me for a date and I kept company withy him for about three years. "I made a recording incidentally of those records, on that old Edison player. I'll have to play it to you sometime." I remember him sayi8ng that he bought it when he was 15 years old and that was sort of a Sunday afternoon pass time." He entertained the family and friends with that old Edison phonograph. After we were dating, I used to go up to his place on Sunday and Grandma would have a nice dinner. We entertained family and friends. I remember we would go with Edna Holdaway and Walter Holdaway his half cousin ; they were very dear friends; and we would go swimming up to Castella Springs. That was a nice resort. It was warm water bathing, that was located not too far up Spainish Fork Canyon. "How would you get there?' We went on a train. About 4 miles, so we walked four miles up to Thistle on the railway track; all three couples. Then we got on a train; and when it came past Castella, the train stopped. I was about two months pregnant with my oldest daughter. I think now that's why she's such a good walker. But we went up there several times. A nice resort, a nice place to go.

Memories of my grandfather John Smith By Evaline Smith Haws

Contributor: janebale Created: 4 years ago Updated: 4 years ago

He was the oldest son of Hyrum of course. Well, my grandfather was very kind and soft spoken. I would say he was a sweet old man. He had a long white beard but it shined just like silk. He always kept it so clean and nice. "Did you ever help him out at all?" Well, I used to go to Salt Lake when I was a little girl with my grandmother and I'd stay sometimes two weeks and visit with her. She was a seamstress and she made men's clothing. What would you call it? A seamstress , and she used to give me scraps of material and would make pillow tops and pillows out of them. They were very pretty. Then she'd show me how to do a fancy stitch around each block. "Do you remember where they lived?" I don't remember whether it was 1st West or 3rd West. "They had a nice home?" Yes, a lovely home and lovely furniture. "I know we have part of their furniture in our home." Yes, Ora my daughter has some in hers and Ruth has a couple of pieces. Well, this living set it was a five piece set of furniture. When Grandfather would have someone come for a blessing, there'd be no one to write the blessing. He said one day to me, "Evy, come here I want you to help me." and I say Ok. but I didn't believe I can write the blessing. He said, "Oh yes you can. Sit right down here and take this pencil and just write down everything I say." Whether I spelled it right or not; I don't know, I was just a little girl! Anyway, I've been proud ever since that I wrote one blessing for my grandfather. He was quite a conversationalist. He used to take me downtown Salt Lake City. He drove a beautiful horse and buggy and he used to take me with him on his errands around town. My grandmother used to say, "Now Evy, if grandfather stays in the store too long you just drive the horse right across the pavement into the store. He used to take me quite a bit. I remember one time I had never had a banana in my life. Someone was selling bananas and so I said Grandfather, buy me a banana! He said, "I don't think you will like a banana. I said I would, so he bought me a banana. My grandmother made me a dress and I can still remember the color. It was kind of a chocolate color, and a pair of shoes to match. The dress fit, but the shoes didn't. I wanted them so bad. "Back to your Grandfather Smith. He had all the relics that belonged to Hyrum Smith. Yes, when my Grandfather Smith died, they were in my home. My father had them. What did they include? My son Gilbert tried on the trousers and the shirt that he was shot in Carthage jail. Among his relics was a pistol, a sword, a watch with bullet holes, glasses, diary, razor, shaving brush, and rifle. The rifle was A Kentucky rifle. He also had a walking cane, dinner bell, a stool and a box. All these things are in the hands of our patriarch Eldred G. Smith.

Letter written by Evaline Smith Haws to her father

Contributor: janebale Created: 4 years ago Updated: 4 years ago

My heart broke, while reading this letter from my Mother to her father. At the time her father was working in the mines at Park City, Utah. This letter was written eight months prior to her marriage to my father. Robert S. Haws Provo Utah, Aug 24, 1908 Dear Papa, I thought I would write you a few lines, to let you know how we were. I guess John is through with that contract he made with you. He got mad at us! and has gone up town to board the children. They need clothes now to go to school. We girls have been keeping them all summer and I can't do it any longer. I need my money now. Now that John has gone, there is nothing coming in. The cow is going dry. There is no feed in the pasture. Mamma had a chance to sell the cow, but didn't. If you think we better sell her, send word. We have no hay to feed her, and I can't take care of her all winter. If they aren't going to pay money to you soon, Don't you think you better get something that you can make money at? The children have got to be cared for. They must go to school, and they can't, because they have no clothes and something to eat. How is the mine turning out? and how are you getting along. It is getting cooler here now. If the mines turns out to be anything, which I hope it does. You ought to try and help Hyrum a little. He goes to California the first of Oct Well, guess this is all tonight. From Evaline

Evaline Smith Haws was 6 years old when Mahatma Gandhi forms the Natal Indian Congress (NIC) in order to fight discrimination against Indian traders in Natal. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was an Indian activist who was the leader of the Indian independence movement against British rule. Employing nonviolent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. The honorific Mahātmā – applied to him first in 1914 in South Africa – is now used worldwide. In India, he is also called Bapu and Gandhi ji, and known as the Father of the Nation.
Evaline Smith Haws was 17 years old when Albert Einstein publishes his first paper on the special theory of relativity. Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. He is best known to the general public for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2, which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation". He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect", a pivotal step in the development of quantum theory.
Evaline Smith Haws was 25 years old when Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg, were assassinated by a Yugoslav nationalist named Gavrilo Princip in Sarajevo, sparking the outbreak of World War I. Archduke Franz Ferdinand, Archduke of Austria-Este was a member of the imperial Habsburg dynasty, and from 1896 until his death the heir presumptive (Thronfolger) to the Austro-Hungarian throne. His assassination in Sarajevo precipitated Austria-Hungary's declaration of war against Serbia, which in turn triggered a series of events that resulted in Austria-Hungary's allies and Serbia's declaring war on each other, starting World War I.
Evaline Smith Haws was 39 years old when Walt Disney character Mickey Mouse premieres in his first cartoon, "Plane Crazy". Walter Elias Disney was an American entrepreneur, animator, voice actor and film producer. A pioneer of the American animation industry, he introduced several developments in the production of cartoons. As a film producer, Disney holds the record for most Academy Awards earned by an individual, having won 22 Oscars from 59 nominations. He was presented with two Golden Globe Special Achievement Awards and an Emmy Award, among other honors. Several of his films are included in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
Evaline Smith Haws was 51 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. 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. 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.
Evaline Smith Haws was 57 years old when World War II: Nagasaki is devastated when an atomic bomb, Fat Man, is dropped by the United States B-29 Bockscar. Thirty-five thousand people are killed outright, including 23,200-28,200 Japanese war workers, 2,000 Korean forced workers, and 150 Japanese soldiers. Nagasaki is the capital and the largest city of Nagasaki Prefecture on the island of Kyushu in Japan. The city's name, 長崎, means "long cape" in Japanese. Nagasaki became a centre of colonial Portuguese and Dutch influence in the 16th through 19th centuries, and the Hidden Christian Sites in the Nagasaki Region have been recognized and included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Part of Nagasaki was home to a major Imperial Japanese Navy base during the First Sino-Japanese War and Russo-Japanese War.
Evaline Smith Haws was 69 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.
Evaline Smith Haws was 81 years old when During the Apollo 11 mission, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the Moon. Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that landed the first two people on the Moon. Mission commander Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin, both American, landed the lunar module Eagle on July 20, 1969, at 20:17 UTC. Armstrong became the first person to step onto the lunar surface six hours after landing on July 21 at 02:56:15 UTC; Aldrin joined him about 20 minutes later. They spent about two and a quarter hours together outside the spacecraft, and collected 47.5 pounds (21.5 kg) of lunar material to bring back to Earth. Michael Collins piloted the command module Columbia alone in lunar orbit while they were on the Moon's surface. Armstrong and Aldrin spent 21.5 hours on the lunar surface before rejoining Columbia in lunar orbit.
