Marsh Sisters, 1949

Contributor: crex Created: 9 months ago Updated: 9 months ago

Taken from page 68 of "My Life History" by Edith Marsh McIntire, 1997. On one of our Utah family vacations (1949), the five Marsh Sisters had their picture taken. It wasn't often that we were all in Utah at the same time. At this time, Fern was living in Illinois and I was living in California.

Taken from page 14-15 of "My Life History" by Edith Marsh McIntire, 1997. The big lot that our house was built on was our play yard. My sister, Fern, and I played together. When Phyllis Jane Talmage, a second cousin who lived in Salt Lake City, came to stay with us for a summer, which extended to five years, she became a third member of our play team. During the five years that Phyllis Jane or Phil, as we came to call her, lived with us, a new dimension was added to my life. Of course, I had to get used to sharing my things with her and having her as part of my family. However, after the normal amount of jealousy subsided, Phil, my sister, Fern, and I became good friends and playmates. Phil's mother, Edna T., as we called her, came to see her regularly. She often took us to a restaurant in Provo to eat which was an unusual and exciting experience for me as a little girl. On several occasions, we, Fern, Phil, and I, vacationed in Hotel Utah in Salt Lake City which was Phil's mother's home after she married Mr. Jenkins. A visit from Mr. Jenkins always meant a new shiny silver dollar for each of us. We really felt rich after each of his visits.

Fern and Douglas

Contributor: crex Created: 9 months ago Updated: 9 months ago

Taken from pages 93-94 of “Write Me a Poem” A Collage by May H. Marsh. FERN AND DOUGLAS written for their Wedding Party August 30, 1939 recited by MayRene When Douglas came to our house first About five years ago, It was to see my brother, Ray, And spend a night or so. And Ray had lots of sisters, then Each waiting for a date, But Douglas didn’t notice them, Fern didn’t even rate. Ray went away for most four years-- Doug bade us all adieu; But just as soon as Ray returned Then here came Douglas, too. Oh, yes, there were some sisters left, But Douglas didn’t care. He simply passed them up again As if they weren’t there. About the second time he came To stay all night with Ray, He asked if Fern would like to ride Out home to spend the day. To be polite, Fern said she would-- They chatted on together About the mountains and the roads And all about the weather. This happened several times, and then We noticed all one day That Doug paid more attention far To Fern than he did Ray. From that time on, when they came out, We heard this little tune-- “We’d better go, we have to work-- And morning comes SO soon!” And then one night they came down home, Excited s could be, To speak to Mom and Dad alone-- They wouldn’t let us see! But anyway, I heard Mom scream-- “To think of such a thing! A few short weeks of courtship-- And NOW a diamond ring!” We all are happy Doug chose Fern To be his life-long partner. We hope in City or in Town She will make a first-class Gardner.

Phyllis Jane -- Just For The Summer-?

Contributor: crex Created: 9 months ago Updated: 9 months ago

Taken from page 15 of May H. Marsh, An Autobiography. The first of June 1924, Aunt May Talmage asked us if we could take her little Granddaughter, Phyllis Jane Talmage, who was then five years old, for the summer. She had not fully recovered from an attack of pneumonia and thinking the fresh country air would help to bring her back to health, we consented to let her come. That increased our family to ten. Phyllis Jane enjoyed being with Edith and Fern (Fern being a year older), having play dinners in the little play house, making mud pies, and catching pollywogs. At the end of the summer she still wanted to stay. She did, and began school that fall in Alpine. She remained with us for five years. We grew to love her as one of the family and shall count her recurring visits as merely coming back home.

My Cousin, Phyllis Jane Talmage

Contributor: crex Created: 9 months ago Updated: 9 months ago

Taken from pages 3-6 of a life history by Fern Marsh Gardner Larsen. During the summer when I was six years old, my cousin, Phyllis Jane Talmage, came to stay with us. She lived in Salt Lake City and was recovering from a severe attack of pneumonia and her grandmother Talmage thought a month of fresh country air would more rapidly improve her health. At first, being strangers to each other, we had many disagreements, but after the first week or two we were just like sisters. After the month was up she did not want to leave so her mother decided to let her stay a little longer and the time lapsed into five years. In the fall of 1924 we were disappointed when we could not start first grade together as she was a few months too young to enter school. Phyllis and I were happy the next year when we could go to school together. After a few weeks she received a special promotion and we were both in the second grade together. We always had fun year round. We had a room we used for our playhouse just off the kitchen, but our summer playhouse was the most fun of all. We had an old rabbit pen in the yard and we made it into a summer playhouse. We played by the hour in our playhouse, but I guess our favorite fun was mixing mud pies and we became rather expert at the art, or so we thought. One day we thought we could improve upon the texture by adding eggs. We took some eggs from the nearby chicken coop. Mother realized she was short some eggs and questioned us about it to see if we knew where the eggs went. Both Phyllis and I said "no." But mother was able to recognize our falsehood and so she took each of us alone into a separate room and the truth came out. Another time we decided that daddy would run short of bread in the store so we molded our mud into loaves of bread and secured some bread wrappers from the house. We wrapped it all up neatly and placed it in the bread case. We thought it would be sold to a customer and no one would be the wiser. I guess we didn't take into consideration that our bread would be a little heavier than the baker's bread. When daddy picked it and realized what it was he was most unhappy and thus ended our competition with Fisher Bakery. One of the saddest moments in my young life was when the parting came between Phyllis and me. The many happy months we had spent together must now come to a close as her mother took her back to Salt Lake to live with her again. I started back to school in the sixth grade in the fall but was very lonely.

Excerpt from Edith's "Black Record Book = I" Journal

Contributor: crex Created: 9 months ago Updated: 9 months ago

March 23, 1978 We left for Arizona with MayRene and Don in Ray’s new motor home. We had a nice trip there. Fern and Gordon, Cleone and Cliff, and Ione came. We spent the time with Thirl and Mary in Mesa. Friday nite we went to the Easter Pageant on the temple grounds. It was a very lovely production of the various events in the life of our Savior. Sunday we came home after Sunday School, dinner and a visit.

Fern Marsh was 23 years old when World War II: The Imperial Japanese Navy made a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, intending to neutralize the United States Pacific Fleet from influencing the war Japan was planning to wage in Southeast Asia. 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.
