Bud Cahoon's memories of the Timpson family homes in Rexburg, Idaho.

Contributor: modestograves Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

The Timpson family moved from SLC, UT to Rexburg about 1910. My mother, Mary stayed in SLC until after she graduated from high school. She worked for Dr. Sharp and lived with them. She took voice lessons from Mrs. Sharp. In Rexburg, Grandfather Timpson worked as a custodian at Washington Grade School and Madison High School. Their first home was on 1st N and about 3rd or 4th W, past the tracks. I (Bud Cahoon) was born in this home in 1919. After Uncle Will and Aunt Ting (Afton) got married and moved out, Grandfather, Grandmother, Lyle, Louise, Ralph and Kenneth moved to a green home on 1st S. and 1st. W. (The LaJolla Apartments are currently in this location). Grandfather died in this home in 1922. They rented this home from Miles Reynolds Cahoon (my father's father). After Grandfather died, Grandmother Timpson moved to 175 S. 2nd W., across the street from Porter Park. (There is a Deseret Book Store near there now). My mother, Mary, my sister, Donna and I moved into this home with Grandmother, Lyle, Louise, Ralph and Kenneth. I was 3 years old. My father had died when I was 5 months old. This home (pictured) at one time had a big front porch with a cement floor and a 3' railing. The front door faced West. To the left of the front door was a dining room. At the back of the dining room was a door that led to the kitchen, a staircase to the 2nd floor and to the back porch. To the right of the front door was a parlor that had a 6' high coal burning furnace. The kitchen had a white sink and on the east wall were cupboards with glass doors. There was a coal and wood burning stove, a Monarch, I think. Next to the back porch was a bathroom with indoor plumbing and a big tub. Under the back porch was a cellar with a dirt floor, where Grandma stored apples, her bottled fruit and vegetables and dill pickles. The bedrooms were on the 2nd floor. The master bedroom was at the front and was wide as the home. The back of the house had a similar bedroom. There were 2 other bedrooms in the middle. Mother, Donna and I stayed in the master bedroom, Grandma stayed in the 1st bedroom past the stairs, Lyle and Louise were in the other bedroom in the middle and Ralph and Kenneth stayed in the big, back bedroom. After Ralph and Kenneth moved out, Louise and her husband, Mark Lutz moved into the big back bedroom. They married right after Louise graduated from High School. Mark was a laborer for the Oregon Short Line Rail Road. When I was 6, I moved into a room under the stairs that had a small closet and was big enough for a bed. My sister Donna and I learned to roller skate on the front porch. We had a nice, big backyard with a garden. Kiddy corner to the house was a barn with a hayloft. There were 6 trees in the orchard: a yellow apple that we called "transparent", a winter apple called "wealthy" and a strawberry crab apple that had small, red, sweet apples. We never owned a car, but Mark owned a Model T and later a Model A which he parked in the barn that was converted to a garage. We were very happy in this home. Donna and Lyle were just 6 years apart in age and played together. Aunt Ting and Uncle Donald worked for Mountain States Telephone and Telegraph Co. Uncle Donald was transferred to Malad as a manager for the telephone co. When Lyle was older she also worked for the telephone company as a telephone operator. My mother was the chief telephone operator for M. S. T & T. When I was 9 years old (1928) we moved to a home on 1st S between 1st & 2nd W, just a block away. There is a church parking lot there now. When my mother remarried in 1935, she moved to HIbbard. I stayed in this home with Grandmother for a short time and then we lived in 2 different one room apartments, until I graduated from high school 2 years later. I have wonderful memories of living with Grandmother. She was so kind, sweet and loving. (The 175 S 2nd W home was moved years later to the Plano road about 5 miles West of Rexburg. The current owner of the property is planning to tear it down as it is in great disrepair.) Bud Cahoon

Memories of Uncle Kenneth by Bud Cahoon

Uncle Kenneth worked in a restaurant in Idaho Falls. He had a side car on his own motorcycle and would visit us in Rexburg and take Donna and I for rides. He would take us up to the top of Rexburg hill and pretend to be out of gas so we could coast down the hill, which we thought was great fun! He came up to Rexburg one time when I was in the 8th grade. I got excused from school so I could go fishing with him. He moved to Los Angeles, California and worked in a restaurant. He would visit with his brother Will and his wife Myrtle who lived in east L.A. One summer Kenneth and his wife (can't remember which one), Uncle Will and Aunt Myrt came up to Rexburg. That was the first time I met his wife. They picked up my mother, Mary and drove to Yellowstone.

Kenneth was working in Chicago as a waiter when the World's Fair opened. He wasn't married at the time. He liked working in restaurants. Chicago is hot and humid and he died of heat stroke there. After he died, his body was shipped to Rexburg for burial. I missed his funeral because I was working in the forest in Northern Idaho that summer. He was a good person. He graduated from Madison High in Rexburg. He was the best ones to help his mother. He visited with his mother and my mother on weekends when he came up from Idaho Falls. He got along with most everyone. He enjoyed living close to Will in LA.

Life timeline of Kenneth Timpson

Kenneth Timpson was born in 1903
Kenneth Timpson was 11 years old when Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg, were assassinated by a Yugoslav nationalist named Gavrilo Princip in Sarajevo, sparking the outbreak of World War I. Archduke Franz Ferdinand, Archduke of Austria-Este was a member of the imperial Habsburg dynasty, and from 1896 until his death the heir presumptive (Thronfolger) to the Austro-Hungarian throne. His assassination in Sarajevo precipitated Austria-Hungary's declaration of war against Serbia, which in turn triggered a series of events that resulted in Austria-Hungary's allies and Serbia's declaring war on each other, starting World War I.
Kenneth Timpson was 26 years old when Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player to hit 500 home runs in his career with a home run at League Park in Cleveland, Ohio. George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball (MLB) spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand as of 2018. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.
Kenneth Timpson died in 1936 at the age of 33
