Things I remember about my dad by James Cobbley

Contributor: willow 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 16 years old when The Wright brothers make their first attempt to fly with the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were two American aviators, engineers, inventors, and aviation pioneers who are generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world's first successful airplane. They made the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft on December 17, 1903, four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In 1904–05 the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible.
Elmer William Cobbley was 26 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.
Elmer William Cobbley was 32 years old when The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, guaranteeing women's suffrage in America. The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens of the United States on the basis of sex. It was adopted on August 18, 1920.
Elmer William Cobbley was 42 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.
Elmer William Cobbley 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.
