MEMORIES OF MY M0THER AND FATHER By Rosella Larsen Sorensen AS a young girl I remember my Mother as being of "average height", with blue eyes, and she wore her hair with a bob on top with a lock on each side curled with a curling iron. Mama had contracted "St. Vidas Dance" (rhumatic fever) when she was a young girl so she had heart trouble nearly all her life and didn't feel well . When I was young she used to sing me a song that went something like this: "My sweet little clover, you are all this world to me. I have searched this whole world over and no sweeter flower do I see." She would sing this song after sending us children out across the street to gather the pretty clover flowers (to get us out from under her feet). Another song she used to sing was called 'Two Drummers". It went some- thing like this: 'Two drummers sat at dinner in a grand hotel one day. They were telling tales and talking, to pass the time away. In came a pretty waitress--brought them a tray of food. They spoke to her famil- iarly in a manner rather rude. At first she did not notice them nor make the least reply, Till one remark was uttered which brought the tear drops to her eye. Then facing her tormentors with cheeks of burning red, she looked a perfect picture as appallingly she said: 'I came to this great city to find a brother dear, and you'd not dare insult me sir, if Jack were only here!' They sat there stunned, and silent, until one cried in shame. 'Forgive me miss, I meant no harm. Pray tell me what's his name? She told him and he cried again. 'I know your brother too, for we've been friends for many years and he oft times spoke of you.' 'He'd be so glad to see you and if you'll only wed, I'll take you to him as my wife) for I love you since you said: 'I came to this great city to find a brother dear, and you'd not dare insult me sir, if Jack were only here." Mom had a lovely voice and I loved to hear her sing. There was a minstral song she used to sing, as well as many others. When my brother Martin was a young boy one day after Christmas the boys were down at Kay Greenwoods shooting a B B gun. The gun got jammed and Martin was looking down the barrel when someone pulled the trigger. The gun went off and put Martin's eye out. Vernal was with him when this happened. Mom and Dad took Martin to Salt Lake and left Clara and I with Grandma Larsen. I was the youngest child and was the baby in the family for four years. After Dortha was born I remember Daddy buying some honey , especially for Mama to eat so that she would have milk for the baby. As a young girl Mother had had her ears pierced and once in a while we would see her push a tooth pick through the hole in her ear lobe to show us the hole. When our home in Central was first built I remember them having a dance in the front room. They had Joshua Barney, his brother and some others played the music. One winter Aunt Lydia and Uncle Ben Marble and Aunt Sade and Uncle Daniel Jackman spent a lot of time at our home. They made quite a few quilts at that time. There was a little cabin out back of our home where Grandpa Marble stayed. He slept in the cabin but he ate all his meals with us. Later he moved across the street and North East of us, to live with his brother Ealum. One time Daddy took Uncle Daniel Jackman up to Salem and back for some reason. Anyone who came to our house was welcome. One time uncle Ben and Aunt Beth Marble came and stayed at our home when they came from California. A day that I will always remember was when I came through a swing- ing door and it banged Mama's arm making her spill hot gravey on her. I sure felt bad about it. Mama was a gentle lady, soft spoken and she wore glasses. We used to separate our milk and take the cream to Elsinore once a week to sell it. When our home in Central was first built I remember them having a dance in the front room. They had Joshua Barney, his brother and some others played the music. One winter Aunt Lydia and Uncle Ben Marble and Aunt Sade and Uncle Daniel Jackman spent a lot of time at our home. They made quite a few quilts at that time. Daddy hauled wood out of Flat Canyon in the fall so that we would have fuel for winter. He was fairly tall when he would straighten his shoulders. He had brown hair, but it was not real dark and I guess you would say he had hazel eyes. He usually wore bib overalls when working. He was a hard worker. He had a good herd of cattle, six or seven horses, and several pigs. I remember the time when I was assigned to be cow herder. Dad bought me a pair of bib overalls. We always had a large wood pile of cedar and pine and in the winter we would haul ice and put it in the ice house at Grandpa Larsens, then in the summer we could have ice cream! When I was a seagull girl in Primary. ,Mom wrote a talk for me and I still have her hand writing. This was a talk that I gave at Stake Conference. We were living in Central at that time/and it wasn't always possible to go to a store/and buy just everything that we needed, so as Mom was finishinq a dress she was making for me to wear to Monroe to the Stake Conference--(the dress was white voil material with pink embroidery on it)--she didn't have any starch so she used milk or sugar water to stiffen it. Being as Mom's health was poor Daddy helped her a lot with her work. I remember the day in 1925 on May 30th when Patriarch James I Jensen came from Elsinore to our home and gave Mama a Patriarchal blessing. I was just fourteen years old at that time. During the winter of 1925-26 when Mama's health was real bad, she had some teeth pulled and she just couldn't seem to get well. Along with her heart trouble she had dropsy, or what is now called fluid in the tissues. Doctor J. G, McQuarrie came out and drew fluids from Mama two or three different times. She was pretty much bed ridden by this time. They also had Presidents Maggleby and Ware come and give her a blessing. I remember the night before Mama passed away I went with the family to Hansen's store which was a block West of our home. We all knelt in prayer and whoever said the prayer put Mama in the hands of the Lord. When we got home Mama said: 'you don't have to tell me where you've been, I know." Someone had to fan Mama as she couldn't get enough air to breathe. The next morning, on February 20th Mama passed away. After Mama died Daddy seemed to quit living--he just gave up. (He wasn't well himself.) He used to go down to Cedar City to a doctor M. Wilkenson. to get some kind of treatments. In the fall of 1926 Daddy wasn't well at all. He told me: "One only gets to know how to live whenits time to die." Clara had married on the 24th of August so I was the oldest one at home. I would take the cows to pasture and hurry back so I'd be there before the girls Ethel and Thelma left for school so that Daddy would't be left alone with Dortha the baby. It was his birthday on December lOth, Grandma Larsen (his Mother) Uncle Lester and Aunt Violet Larsen, Aunt Teah, (and I can't remember if there were others), came to give Daddy a party, but when they saw how sick he was they all left except Uncle Lester who stayed and sat up with Daddy. Daddy passed away on December 14th and was buried on December 18th, 1927

Life timeline of John E Larsen

1879
John E Larsen was born on 10 Dec 1879
John E Larsen was 8 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.
John E Larsen was 13 years old when Electrical engineer Nikola Tesla gives the first public demonstration of radio in St. Louis, Missouri. Nikola Tesla was a Serbian American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist who is best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system.
John E Larsen was 29 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.
John E Larsen was 32 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.
John E Larsen died on 14 Dec 1927 at the age of 48
