Contributor: crex Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

Lancelot was only eight years old when his mother, Margaret Jane Wright, died. She died on January 19, 1888 from complications of the measles and pneumonia. Just a few months later in March, Lancelot's six month old baby sister, Evelyn Greenwell died. A little over a year later on 5 December 1889, his 4 yr. old sister, Margaret Ann Greenwell, died of diphtheria. With the death of his father in 1891, Lancelot (10) and his brother, Albert Edward (8), went to live with their half-brother Ambrose Greenwell. While there they attended the Old Grant School in Ogden. John Henry (16) and Rhoda May (13) lived in Slaterville with the Henry Bowns family. Henry Bowns married John Clows' widow, Harriet, who was John Greenwell's sister-in-law. At the death of Ambrose, the 2 younger children were split up and Lance lived with Dick and Lizzie Greenwell. Albert Edward went to live with Aunt Elizabeth, Charles Henry's mother. At a very young age Lancelot went up into the mountains and helped herd sheep for which he received food and clothing. His youth was filled with hardships, which he learned early to accept. On November 14th, Lancelot married Betsy Robena Hammon in Ogden, he was baptized, 9 Nov 1906, and they received their endowments and they had their 7 children sealed 11 October 1922. Lance never knew a real home until he married Robena and he never ceased to appreciate and love his home and family.
