Things I remember about my dad by James Cobbley

Contributor: Nana5667 Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Things I remember about my dad by James Cobbley: Elmer grew up in Provo. Elmer peddled strawberries from a covered wagon that his dad grew. Elmer married Charlotte, in Provo. They lived in Provo for awhile. He was also a farmer in Riverside, Idaho. Elmer farmed on the reservation and then farmed in Thomas. The farm in Thomas belonged to Charlottes mother and dad. They went to Salt Lake City and lived in Sugar House. Elmer worked in a place where they made speakers for radios. They moved back to Thomas and worked on Charlottes mom and dads farm. He went to Portland, Oregon at one time to work in a saw mill. Elmer worked for the state helping to build roads. They were putting gravel down to repair the roads. Elmer ran a school bus for awhile. Before that it was a horse drawn wagon with a little stove in it to keep it warm in the winter. This was before they had school buses. In the winter the school bus was a sleigh drawn by horses. He did his farming in the early years with horses. He grew hay and sugar beets, grain and potatoes. He died from a stroke at home. They were living in Firth at the time. Things I remember about my mom by James Cobbley: Charlottes mother and brother Andy (Andrew) lived with them for awhile. She spent her life being a housewife, cooking and sewing for her family. She never worked ourtside the home. They went to church once in awhile and were married in the Salt Lake temple. Trips were going to visit relatives. Charlotte moved to Blackfoot after Elmer died. She lived with her daughter Verna in Pingree for awhile and ended up in a rest home where she suffered from Alzeheimers.

Life timeline of Elmer William Cobbley

Elmer William Cobbley was born on 13 Jun 1888
Elmer William Cobbley was 10 years old when Spanish–American War: The Treaty of Paris is signed, officially ending the conflict. The Spanish–American War was fought between the United States and Spain in 1898. Hostilities began in the aftermath of the internal explosion of the USS Maine in Havana Harbor in Cuba, leading to US intervention in the Cuban War of Independence. American acquisition of Spain's Pacific possessions led to its involvement in the Philippine Revolution and ultimately in the Philippine–American War.
Elmer William Cobbley 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.
Elmer William Cobbley was 29 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. 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). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
