Illa Hawks Williams story

Contributor: crex Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

I, Ila LC Hawks, daughter of Joshua W. Hawks and Margaret Hunsaker, was born December 6, 1891 at Escalante, Garfield Co., Utah. I was blessed Feb 4 1892. I was baptized at Honeyville, UT June 27th 1899. Married to Charles Fredrick Williams Dec. 27, 1912 at SL City courthouse by Judge Eldrige. Endowed June 24, 1924 in SLC Temple and sealed to Charles that same day. My earliest remembrance is of a long journey we were moving from Escalante to Honeyville then, finally arriving at my Grandmother Hunsaker's home, a most magnificent place, it seemed to me. I was filled with awe at the beauty of the inside-beautiful parlor, thick carpet, big piano, cushioned chairs, ornaments and pictures. Then we moved to a rock house by the Salt River and lived there two winters. In back was the ruins of an old mill where we used to play (Honeyville). When I was six I started school which was held in the top part of a store. At this time we were renting because every spring, we moved out to Pocatello valley and our farm. So the next two years we lived in another house in Honeyville and I went to a different school. My mother had boy babies and I always wanted a girl baby. How I loved babies! - A trait that always stayed with me; even when I stared to teach school, it was the younger ones I wanted to be with. I still think children are just as interesting as grownups. After school was out in the spring, we went as usual to the farm, sad we never lived at Honeyville again; but spent our winters in Portage in order that we children might go to school and bought a home there. Life on the farm was very quiet, and when we grew older very lonesome, for the valley consisted of farms miles and miles apart. So most of the time we children were by ourselves and had to create our own amusement. We rode horses and looked forward to the 4th and 24th of July for celebrations. Our hard working parents were good religious people, and sacrificed and did all they could for us children. We were taught early in life to pray and have faith. For example, we always prayed for a baby sister and a piano and an upstairs and eventually we did have all those things. Also I was thrown from a horse and was unconscious for 2 days and nights and I believe it was through prayer that I was blessed with no lasting injuries. My mother and father had fairly good singing voices and to us, their songs were most perfect and beautiful. They seemed to have unlimited stock of songs. My dad put such feeling in his singing. Many people have made the same remark. My father also played the violin a great deal in the evenings. During my childhood and youth I had almost perfect health. Of all the childhood diseases I had only mumps and whooping cough. In those days, there were many diseases and no medicine. One summer when I was 10, every member of my family except mother and I was in bed with typhoid fever and we had our hands full nursing them all. We all worked on the farm there was washing dishes and milking the animals, churning and making butter. Cooking and at harvest time for large groups of hungry men. We girls could cook a good balanced meal by this time, I was 11. My eldest and favorite brother was called on a mission. while he was gone, we children and parents prayed night and morning for his success and safety. Never was there such peace and joy in a home during this period. I'll never forget when he came home how handsome, clean and good he looked. We were so proud of him and so happy. I believe a mission in a family benefits each member so very much. It proves the divinity of the work to them and arouses their interest. I was 14 and graduated from 8th grade, But because there was no higher schooling in the area, I had to retake 8th grade and the teacher gave me extra work. How I longed to go to Logan or B.Y.U. Finally after that year and much coaxing and pleading with my parents, they made arrangements form me to go to Logan with some neighbor children, who ere older than I and I was to pay my share and live with them. The next year these neighbors were not returning to Logan and I couldn't stay as I did not have a chaperon. I again begged and pleaded for my parents to let me go to get a higher education. August came and they still hadn't made up their mids and school was only a few weeks away I was still praying and hoping. Then something wonderful happened which opened the way like magic. An important letter came from Joseph F. Smith In it he said I had been recommended as one possessing special qualifications for Sunday School work and a special course in that subject was being given that fall at BYU. I would accept it as a missionary call, etc. This was wonderful for me as it was an answer to my prayers, I had an opportunity to go back to school, it was a honor. The Sunday School board gave me $100 to help me pay for expenses and my father brought me to Provo on the train. I was very serious about my studies and earned a Kindergarten Diploma as well as a Normal one. I had several suitors that asked for my had in marriage, but i had other things on my mind. I taught school in Portage from 1912-1914 and in the meantime I was married and we bought a little home on 5th west, later we bought a better one on 4th west and 2nd north (269 N. 4th West). Her son, Carroll relates that Ila met Frederick at a roller skating rink. Frederick was an accomplished skater and swept Ila off her feet. There was also talk of a kiss on the back porch that set her mind to marry him. Frederick was not LDS so it was said that as a wedding gift, Frederick was baptized a member as a wedding gift to Ila. In time, she had 2 little boys, Alva Berlyn who died when he was 21 and Carroll Denon. She wanted more children, but due to her thyroid condition, she could not have any more and had many miscarriages. She was told her thyroid problems could be helped if she would drink beer. Which she did and even made her own beer, But there was a problem because they had to figure out how to make the beer just right with out the tops blowing off. This went on for years. She gave it up when it became a "problem", reports her son. She loved to teach, work on her genealogy and was a librarian. She passed away April 13, 1979 and is buried next to her husband in the Provo City Cemetery in Utah.

Life timeline of Illa L. C. Hawks

1891
Illa L. C. Hawks was born on 6 Dec 1891
Illa L. C. Hawks was 17 years old when Ford puts the Model T car on the market at a price of US$825. Ford Motor Company is an American multinational automaker headquartered in Dearborn, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. It was founded by Henry Ford and incorporated on June 16, 1903. The company sells automobiles and commercial vehicles under the Ford brand and most luxury cars under the Lincoln brand. Ford also owns Brazilian SUV manufacturer Troller, an 8% stake in Aston Martin of the United Kingdom, and a 49% stake in Jiangling Motors of China. It also has joint-ventures in China, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, and Russia. The company is listed on the New York Stock Exchange and is controlled by the Ford family; they have minority ownership but the majority of the voting power.
Illa L. C. Hawks was 25 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.
Illa L. C. Hawks was 38 years old when Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player to hit 500 home runs in his career with a home run at League Park in Cleveland, Ohio. George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball (MLB) spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand as of 2018. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.
Illa L. C. Hawks was 39 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.
Illa L. C. Hawks was 54 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.
Illa L. C. Hawks was 66 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. 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.
Illa L. C. Hawks was 78 years old when During the Apollo 11 mission, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the Moon. Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that landed the first two people on the Moon. Mission commander Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin, both American, landed the lunar module Eagle on July 20, 1969, at 20:17 UTC. Armstrong became the first person to step onto the lunar surface six hours after landing on July 21 at 02:56:15 UTC; Aldrin joined him about 20 minutes later. They spent about two and a quarter hours together outside the spacecraft, and collected 47.5 pounds (21.5 kg) of lunar material to bring back to Earth. Michael Collins piloted the command module Columbia alone in lunar orbit while they were on the Moon's surface. Armstrong and Aldrin spent 21.5 hours on the lunar surface before rejoining Columbia in lunar orbit.
Illa L. C. Hawks died on 13 Apr 1979 at the age of 87
