Stories told by Lela Finlayson Haymore

Contributor: Chynna67 Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

I was born of goodly parents, July 30 1914 Thursday at 3 pm. This may seen odd but I can remember of being born because of the great pressure on my head - I remember it even when I was a child. Then when my babies were born it came back again in my memory. I already had a older brother born the year before. We lived in Gma & Gmpa Richards home on 211 South University Ave (corner). (This home was torn down in 1978.) We lived in the basement and Gma Richards lived up stairs. Before we moved there I remember going to see Gmpa Richards and he would give us pieces of real maple sugar. When we were living there, Gmpa Finlayson came to stay with us and all of us had whooping cough and Gmpa Finlayson also got whooping cough and was really sick. My Father was a carpenter and for a while we lived in McGill Nevada. I rember being car sick going there. Dad built a home on 722 N 2nd East in Provo and we lived there a few years. Dad bought a small farm in Lakeview just west of Provo by the Provo river. While he was building we lived in a one room shack for the kitchen and two tents serving as bedrooms. I was born at the Merrill Hospital in Provo, Utah, Thursday, July 30th, 3 pm, the first girl in our family. My brother Earl was born the year before on July 7th. The hospital was just off University Avenue on the corner of 2nd South in Provo. My father was Fredrick Lloyd Finlayson and was born in Payson. My mother was Aimie Richards Taylor the oldest child of Amelia Richards and Fred Whitaker Taylor. Son of President John Taylor and My mother (Younger than she) was Heber Fred, Julia, Albert, Alice, Helen and twins Ralph and My mother was born in and my father was born in Payson, Utah. My Mothers father was a doctor of Medicine and also his Sons Fred and Albert Heber taught at the University of Utah. Mother went to school in Provo and when she graduated from high school she went to B.Y.U. and got her degree to teach in Home Economics. After which she taught in Heber City, Utah. My father and mother were married in October 11, 1912. Father was a Carpenter, and we lived in McGill Nevada for a couple of years. Then he built a nice home in Provo at 722 East and 2nd North. When we were getting our bath on a Saturday evening, Earl hurried out to sit on the oven door as we sometimes did when it was warm and the fire was out. My mother had just taken a cake out so the door was very hot and Earl was severely burned from sitting on the door. While we lived there. It was when I can remember my father or mother scolding us for something we had done wrong like not asking to play at the neighbors or staying too long. When I was about five yrs old my father bought a farm in Lakeview west of Provo, about 30 acres. There was a large pasture bordered by Provo river on the South. Many acres we grew sugar beets, sometimes tomatoes for the cannery or peas. Lots of Potatoes, hay a large garden and grain. There was some apple trees. We had a flowing well and we ran a large Dairy farm so we always had plenty of milk and meat, fruit and vegetables. We raised pigs and chickens and horses for the farm work. We canned or bottled lots of our food. We first lined in a one room shack where we cooked ate and Mom & Dads bed was there. We had a large square tent for sleeping and a round one. My Mother & Dad were really hard workers. One night when my folks had gone away for awhile they came home to find our large bull asleep on the step in the front of the shack. After they told us about it, Many nights I had nitemares about it. Also about my grandfather coming to give us our shots for different things. Soon my father had our house built, there was a kitchen, living room bathroom and two bedrooms. As our family grew bigger we were guite crowded for sleeping space. Sometimes three in a double bed. Folks room always had a baby bed. Gmpa Taylor bought a library table and gave us the crate it came in shape of a baby bed. Soon our house was filled with bed bugs from the crate. It took many fumigation to get rid of them. As the family grew my father closed in the back porch with screen and glass to make a room for the older boys to sleep in. It made it easier for them to get up and do chores

Earl Taylor Finlayson was 16 years old when Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player to hit 500 home runs in his career with a home run at League Park in Cleveland, Ohio. George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball (MLB) spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand as of 2018. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.
Earl Taylor Finlayson was 17 years old when Great Depression: In a State of the Union message, U.S. President Herbert Hoover proposes a $150 million (equivalent to $2,197,000,000 in 2017) public works program to help generate jobs and stimulate the economy. The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, beginning in the United States. The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations; in most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until the late-1930s. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression of the 20th century. In the 21st century, the Great Depression is commonly used as an example of how far the world's economy can decline.
Earl Taylor Finlayson was 31 years old when World War II: The Allied invasion of Normandy—codenamed Operation Overlord—begins with the execution of Operation Neptune (commonly referred to as D-Day), the landing of 155,000 Allied troops on the beaches of Normandy in France. The Allied soldiers quickly break through the Atlantic Wall and push inland in the largest amphibious military operation in history. The Allies of World War II, called the United Nations from the 1 January 1942 declaration, were the countries that together opposed the Axis powers during the Second World War (1939–1945). The Allies promoted the alliance as a means to control German, Japanese and Italian aggression.
Earl Taylor Finlayson was 44 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.

The Munich massacre was an attack during the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, West Germany, in which the Palestinian terrorist group Black September took eleven Israeli Olympic team members hostage and killed them along with a West German police officer.
Earl Taylor Finlayson was 76 years old when Cold War: Fall of the Berlin Wall: East Germany opens checkpoints in the Berlin Wall, allowing its citizens to travel to West Berlin. The Berlin Wall was a guarded concrete barrier that physically and ideologically divided Berlin from 1961 to 1989. Constructed by the German Democratic Republic, starting on 13 August 1961, the Wall cut off West Berlin from virtually all of surrounding East Germany and East Berlin until government officials opened it in November 1989. Its demolition officially began on 13 June 1990 and finished in 1992. The barrier included guard towers placed along large concrete walls, accompanied by a wide area that contained anti-vehicle trenches, "fakir beds" and other defenses. The Eastern Bloc portrayed the Wall as protecting its population from fascist elements conspiring to prevent the "will of the people" in building a socialist state in East Germany.
