Hortense (Harty)

Contributor: dfarmer55 Created: 9 months ago Updated: 9 months ago

Hortense was born 2 November 1903 in Parowan, Utah. Her parents are Daniel Joseph Lowe and Mary Ellen Banks. The family moved to Big Horn basin in Wyoming when Hortense was about 2 years old. Grandparents and other family members pioneered in Wyoming at the same time. They lived in a tent for about a year. Harty, as she liked to called, was dating James Stringham. He was called on a mission so she accompanied him to Salt Lake City where they were married in the Salt Lake temple on January 14, 1920 just before he left on his mission. Harty returned to Wyoming. By the end of Jim's mission both had decided the marriage was a mistake so they divorced on 18 November, 1922. Arthur Myrthn Stephens (who was known as "Steve") came to Wyoming selling Utah Woolen goods. He began to court Harty and they were married. Steve helped Dan on the farm that spring. Steve was a city boy with no farming experience. Dan put him to work planting corn. When the planter ran out of corn, Steve was to fill it and continue planting. At noon Dan inquired as to how the seed was holding out. "Oh, there's plenty of corn, the planter is still full." Upon checking, it was discovered that the planter had clogged after the first row and so he had planted nothing, even tho he had worked all morning. Steve and Harty moved to Butte, Montana where he found work in the copper mines. Their first daughter, Martha was born in Butte on 30 July, 1923. Work was good and soon Harty's brother, Allen, joined them. Allen saved his money and sent for Pauline; they were soon married. It was good to have family near by. When they left Butte they went to Twin Falls, Idaho where LuJean was born on 25 March, 1925. Their next move was to Logan, then Salt Lake City and finally to Provo, Utah. In Provo Steve became an agent for Holland Furnace Company. This was a good job and they built a new home. Harty enjoyed living near cousins and aunts and uncles in the Banks family. Steve was doing well so they built a new home near Geneva Steel in Orem. This company processed the iron ore mined on South Pass in Wyoming and employed many people in the Provo and Orem area. This new home boasted the first furnace and air conditioner and they were happy to share the comforts with visitors. However, they soon decided they would rather live in town so they had another home built in Provo. This comfortable home was smaller with a basement that they rented out, mostly to students. Martha (Marty) married William Ray Wright and Jean married Jay Christensen. Both families lived in Provo and Harty really enjoyed her grandchildren, often including one or two when they traveled. Sorrow came when Marty's son Steven died in an accident involving guns. Steve retired and opened a second hand store to keep busy. He passed away 22 November 1967 and is buried in Provo Cemetery. Harty lived alone for a number of years, then she lived with granddaughter Jeanie Gurney until her death 8 May 1986. She is buried in Provo Cemetery.

Hortense Lowe Stephens was 36 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. 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.

The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
