James Page was a Marvelous Man

Contributor: BarbaraLeishman Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

This story is taken from some writings of my father, H.L. Jensen. (Recorded by Lorraine Jensen Brown) "I think Grandpa Page (James Page, father of Ivie Page) was a marvelous man. I feel I should give and record why Grandpa was a great man." This was written when H.L. was very old and his writing was so shaky that it is hard to read the exact words. He goes on to tell that Grandpa James Page was left an orphan as a child and was treated very poorly by the people taking care of him. When he got old enough to work he would send his wages back to these people. He married and was able to obtain a farm in Dayton, Idaho. “Yes, a dry farm covered with sage brush. How he ever cleared that land and raised a family, I’ll never know. (Of his children), two were school teachers, one took an advanced dressmaking course and one son went on a mission. They got some land down in the valley and there they built an eight-room house. They bought new furniture and put carpets on the floors. One night I went out to see lvie, and I had just sat down to eat when all at once a big piece of plaster fell out of the ceiling hitting me on the head and covering me and everything in the house with dirt. Grandpa didn't swear, he just laughed but his face went red and I mean red...as he said,'Ivie, get the clothes brush and brush that boy's clothes'. The next summer they got a big tent and lived in that while they took the lath and plaster off and had it all done over. I never heard him say anything bad about the man that built the house. If Grandma ever complained I never heard her."

Life timeline of James Page

James Page was born on 12 Feb 1862
James Page was 13 years old when Winston Churchill, English colonel, journalist, and politician, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Nobel Prize laureate (d. 1965) Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill was a British politician, army officer, and writer, who was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. As Prime Minister, Churchill led Britain to victory in the Second World War. Churchill represented five constituencies during his career as Member of Parliament (MP). Ideologically an economic liberal and British imperialist, he began and ended his parliamentary career as a member of the Conservative Party, which he led from 1940 to 1955, but for twenty years from 1904 he was a prominent member of the Liberal Party.
James Page was 26 years old when The Great Blizzard of 1888 struck the northeastern United States, producing snowdrifts in excess of 50 ft (15 m) and confining some people to their houses for up to a week. The Great Blizzard of 1888 or Great Blizzard of '88 was one of the most severe recorded blizzards in the history of the United States of America. The storm, referred to as the Great White Hurricane, paralyzed the East Coast from the Chesapeake Bay to Maine, as well as the Atlantic provinces of Canada. Snowfalls of 10 to 58 inches fell in parts of New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut, and sustained winds of more than 45 miles per hour (72 km/h) produced snowdrifts in excess of 50 feet (15 m). Railroads were shut down, and people were confined to their houses for up to a week. Railway and telegraph lines were disabled, and this provided the impetus to move these pieces of infrastructure underground. Emergency services were also affected.
James Page was 30 years old when Thomas Edison patents the motion picture camera. Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.
James Page was 44 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 Page was 50 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 Page died on 27 Oct 1921 at the age of 59
