James and Margaret Partridge Lloyd

Contributor: crozierfam Created : 4 years ago Updated : 4 years ago

This story is from the book "From Then Until Now" 75 years in Central Uintah Basin 1905-1980 JAMES LLOYD and MARGARET PARTRIDGE James Lloyd was born 9 November 1893, in Panquitch, Garfield County, Utah, to William Monroe Lloyd and Christina Jacobson. Margaret Partridge was born 11 November in Panguitch, Garfield County, Utah, to John as Partridge and Maria Wesson James and Margaret attended the schools in Panguitch. When Margaret graduated from the eighth grade, she accepted a job checking in the Panguitch Equitable, a department store, for one dollar a day. James supported himself from an early age herding sheep and cattle for Cal Tebbs. James and Margaret were married 4 October 1916, in Manti, Utah, and resided in Panguitch until June 1919. At this time, James felt they should move to the Uintah Basin. Margaret wasn't too happy about the change; it was terrible to think of leaving home and living among the Indians. They decided to homestead one hundred twenty acres of rocks and sagebrush in the vicinity of Ioka, Duchesne County, Utah. On 15 June 1919, Margaret and daughter Mary left Panguitch and rode on the mail truck to Marysvale. Then they took the train to Price where James met them. They traveled by car the rest of the journey and settled in the Harris home, which they rented. James cleared sagebrush and rocks from their land, dug post holes and made fences, poisoned prairie dogs, plowed, planted, and irrigated. He constructed his own surveying gadget so the water would run down the ditches. They seldom had enough water to raise and mature the crops with abundant harvests. Some years were much drier than other years, which made it a definite gamble to farm. Margaret did her share of milking cows, gardening, raising turkeys, and chickens. She always made the best with what they had. She never expected more than they could earn. James and Margaret had a motto, Never get something until you can pay for it. In the fall of 1924, they were able to purchase a shiny, black Model T Ford that had curtains which pulled down and snapped closed. They paid for this with a check in the amount of five hundred dollars to Roland Krebbs, the car dealer in Myton. This was the profit on two good crops of alfalfa seed. Paul Lemon reports that James Lloyd had the first car in Ioka. Mother and the girls were kept busy raising turkeys for they never stayed within the farm boundaries. One fall, by selling turkeys live weight, they were able to pay the taxes. Along with alfalfa, James raised wheat, corn, and pinto beans. They had a fruit orchard, and raised beef besides the other animals already mentioned. James Lloyd's four daughters helped to haul hay, rode the cultivator horse, and did all other odd jobs that they could do to help their father make a living for the family. The threshing of grain and seed was a venture of indefinite extension. Mr. Zimmerman from Roosevelt had a steam tractor with iron cleats on the wheels, which was moved from farm to farm. The area farmers exchanged help during the threshing season. If stormy weather came during the threshing of crops, it often fell upon the lady of the house where the thresher was, to feed the threshing hands during the time the stacks of grain or seed were drying out. One year, Margaret remembers feeding five or six men three meals a day for several days while waiting for the weather to change. It was always a relief to the women and girls when the threshers moved on to the next place. Some of the men who participated in the community threshing endeavor were: John E. Webb, Asa Webb, Francis Ross, Ralph Miles, William Stone, Fredrick Pack, Joseph Robison, Ed. Burgener, John Spencer, John and James Lemon, Melvin Benson, P. C. Johnson, Charles Percival, Walter Baird, Wade Krebbs, and others. Over the years, several other men bought and operated threshing machines. The Ioka LDS Churchhouse was the gathering place for many events. The Twenty-fourth of July was a special day, with races for all ages, pie eating contests, baseball games, and homemade ice cream, root beer, popcorn, and other treats. For the Fourth of July, various men of the Ward were sure to set charges of dynamite to remind everyone of Independence Day. The celebration of this day always had a morning program filled with an oration and patriotic songs and recitations, the afternoon was filled with fun for all, and in the evening the young people enjoyed a dance—usually the young people who danced were from the age of children learning to walk to the oldest couples in the community. Dances for other special occasions, with orchestras providing music, were Christmas, New Years, wedding receptions, and the Gold and Green Balls. The floor shows gave many young people opportunities to express their talents. Parents and children of all ages enjoyed these occasions. Margaret Lloyd enjoyed the association with the people of the Ioka Ward, especially the Relief Society. She enjoyed the hours she spent quilting with the women. To mention a few: Etta Webb, Mary Percival, Celia Jones, Edna Drollinger, Enid Nelson, Zelma Lloyd, Rachel Benson, Eva Miles, Agnes Marchant, Anna and Minnie Lemon, Eliza Robison, Thelma Cook, Bertha Angus, Etta Ross, Cora Stone, Amelia Baird, Geneva Johnson, Violet Gentry, Nora Sanfelice, Lula Pack, Olive Sorensen, Zina Krebbs, Jeannette Miles, and Marie Benson. Margaret's hands were never idle as she found time to create beautiful and useful clothes and gifts for her family and many others. Margaret and daughter Dean presently reside in Roosevelt. Margaret remains active and busy. Dean is employed in the Carlson Cleaners where she has worked for many years. They are active in their LDS Ward. (1980)

Life timeline of James Lloyd

James Lloyd was born on 9 Nov 1893
James Lloyd was 12 years old when Albert Einstein publishes his first paper on the special theory of relativity. Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. He is best known to the general public for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2, which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation". He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect", a pivotal step in the development of quantum theory.
James Lloyd was 18 years old when The British passenger liner RMS Titanic sinks in the North Atlantic at 2:20 a.m., two hours and forty minutes after hitting an iceberg. Only 710 of 2,227 passengers and crew on board survive. RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early hours of 15 April 1912, after colliding with an iceberg during its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. There were an estimated 2,224 passengers and crew aboard, and more than 1,500 died, making it one of the deadliest commercial peacetime maritime disasters in modern history. RMS Titanic was the largest ship afloat at the time it entered service and was the second of three Olympic-class ocean liners operated by the White Star Line. It was built by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast. Thomas Andrews, her architect, died in the disaster.
James Lloyd was 27 years old when The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, guaranteeing women's suffrage in America. The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens of the United States on the basis of sex. It was adopted on August 18, 1920.
James Lloyd was 46 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.
James Lloyd was 51 years old when World War II: The Allied invasion of Normandy—codenamed Operation Overlord—begins with the execution of Operation Neptune (commonly referred to as D-Day), the landing of 155,000 Allied troops on the beaches of Normandy in France. The Allied soldiers quickly break through the Atlantic Wall and push inland in the largest amphibious military operation in history. The Allies of World War II, called the United Nations from the 1 January 1942 declaration, were the countries that together opposed the Axis powers during the Second World War (1939–1945). The Allies promoted the alliance as a means to control German, Japanese and Italian aggression.
James Lloyd was 59 years old when Jonas Salk announced the successful test of his polio vaccine on a small group of adults and children (vaccination pictured). Jonas Edward Salk was an American medical researcher and virologist. He discovered and developed one of the first successful polio vaccines. Born in New York City, he attended New York University School of Medicine, later choosing to do medical research instead of becoming a practicing physician. In 1939, after earning his medical degree, Salk began an internship as a physician scientist at Mount Sinai Hospital. Two years later he was granted a fellowship at the University of Michigan, where he would study flu viruses with his mentor Thomas Francis, Jr.
James Lloyd died on 10 Feb 1961 at the age of 67
