James Lindsay in Center Creek

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

James Lindsay and his brother William put in 2 reservoirs in the canyon above their farms. The water stored was used to irrigate their crops. A few years later, others wanted to use the water. James wanted to form an irrigation cooperative so that others would share expenses required for maintenance of the reservoir head gates, etc. When some potential users declined to share expenses, James wanted to deny them use of the water. The Stake President (Hatch, I think) was called in to arbitrate. He decided against James, and this embittered him and he no longer participated in Church, and ultimately denounced organized religion. William, on the other hand bore no resentment, and continued in Church activity. I recall, as a young boy (about 1939) going up near the reservoirs to get Cedar or Juniper trees for landscaping our new home in Salt Lake. Many years later, my son Jeff bought a home in what was called Timber Lakes. As I drove in to visit him I recognized the reservoirs from 70 years earlier.

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.

Grandpa and Gardener

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

Even though I was only 5-years-old when Grandpa Crook died, I have some fond memories of him. We lived across the street from him. He had a nice, large garden that he worked in a lot. We used to go over to play and he'd put us in the white wheelbarrow and roll us around the yard. I also remember him taking me for bike rides, with me sitting in the baby seat on his bike. Once we crashed in some loose gravel and I can remember Grandpa holding me as I cried. And one last ride I specifically remember is going to the grocery store in his green Chevy Malibu. Grandma didn't drive, so he did the grocery shopping (or maybe they did it together sometimes.) Grandpa was a bookkeeper/accountant for Shell Oil at one time. I remember playing at his very tidy desk downstairs where he had a 10-key adding machine. We would play secretary or teacher with his office products. I have seen some of his "journals" that include very detailed, but brief, information such as the weather, the number of beans canned that day, and the price of gas. Once a bookkeeper, always a bookkeeper! I remember the morning Mom told us that Grandpa had died. He had been sick with Colon Cancer and was in his home at that point. One morning my brother and I climbed in bed with Mom and with tears rolling down her face, she told us that Grandpa had died in his sleep the night before. I felt the spirit of the Holy Ghost that morning as she bore testimony that Grandpa was living in heaven again.

A better man, I never knew.

Grandpa Frederick Crook, my father's father, was always so kind and gentle. When he became too old to do the hardest work on the farm, he kept going with gardens and building projects around the home site. They lived on half square block in Heber with a large 2-story brick home which was still standing and occupied when I drove past January 2014. Some have told of walking past the home at about 8am on any morning and of seeing the family kneeling in prayer. I remember those long-long prayers. Grandpa wanted to bless everyone. Their food was simple and wholesome. I found out only later that they were just eking out a living, and that after he died her sons supported Grandma. Many of my cousins fondly remember the sugar cookies baked whenever they came. It seemed that this was a cookie she could make inexpensively. In his later years he and two youngest sons set up a feed store. It was not profitable because soft-hearted grandpa extended credit to all who asked for it. I recall people coming to the house years later to pay long-overdue bills. When i was 6 or 7 he'd put me up on OLD BLUE and let me guide the horse down the rows of turnips and other vegetables to cultivate. I recall turnips from his garden as big as my head. He took me places and bought me too much candy. When I was 11 or 12 he taught me how to shingle a roof as we put a new roof on the chicken coop. He visited the County fair and the 4th or 24th of July Celebration and gave nickles and dimes to boys with none. Grandma once told me "I wouldn't mind giving ten per cent to the Church an living on ninety, but he wants to give 90 percent to the Church. When he died in 1952 I was a student at Ricks College (Now BYU Idaho). We didn't use the phone much in those days because of costs, but when I received a letter of his death, I caught the next bus from Rexburg to Heber but arrived too late for the funeral. I believe that was the first time I felt a grievous loss. I count 39 grandchildren, my cousins, who loved him and emulate his many good qualities.
