Fred Crook as Bishop of Heber 3rd Ward

Contributor: Hilljr Created: 11 months ago Updated: 11 months ago

Fred Crook was called on a mission to the Northern States, laboring in Illinois and Iowa. While there he met some of his cousins who had stayed in and around Council Bluffs rather than going to Utah. He and his brother-in-law, Jonathan O. Duke left together in Feb. 1900, being the first missionaries to travel on the new railroad from Heber to Provo. Fred was married and had three children at the time. He returned in April 1902. At the time, he and his family lived with his father, John. He was called to be bishop of the new Heber Third ward at the South end of town. This required him to move, and he build a fine brick home at 512 So. Main St. I have many happy memories of spending my summers in that house when I was a boy. He also supervised construction of a new building for the Third ward at 4th South and Main St. He was a great and loving bishop, and was called by that title even after being released 28 years later in Feb 1931. My father James, born in Jan 1906 never new a time in his youth when his father was not Bishop of their ward.

Frederick Crook was 48 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.
