HISTORY OF ENOS PROCTOR FACKRELL
Enos Proctor Fackrell was born 10 April 1864 at Bountiful, Davis County, Utah. He was a son of David Bancroft Fackrell and Hannah Proctor Fackrell. He was the oldest in a family of six boys. When Enos was three years old, his father, mother, and family moved to the Muddy Mission, being requested to do so by the prophet, Brigham Young. From this outpost of colonization, they were called back to work in the United Order at Orderville, Kane County, Utah.
On 16 Jan. 1885, Enos married Louise Fischer at the St. George Temple. She was the daughter of Jacob and “Grandma” Fischer. To this union were born two children: Theron, born 7 Oct. 1885, and Frances, a daughter, born 8 Dec. 1889. They owned a fine ranch eight miles north of Orderville, and they prospered there. In August of 1912, Enos and his wife, Louise, together with her mother, moved to Thomas, Bingham County, Idaho, and purchased a. home from George Davis on the Thomas town site. Here they made their home. Enos was a school trustee of District No.48, and was also janitor there. He was very punctual and rang the school bell exactly on the minute each morning for all of the years that he lived there. Enos died 25 January 1933. It was a bad cold winter and the snow was so deep that he was taken to the Riverside-Thomas Cemetery on a bob sled. They traveled through the fields directly to the cemetery because of the impassability of the roads.
