Story of My Mother’s Life

Contributor: Will Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

My Mother Margaret Eve Cameron was born in Evanston, Uintah Co. Wyoming 18 Oct 1877, a daughter of James Alexander Cameron and Sarah Eve Conley. When she was a very small child they moved to Randolph Rich Co. Utah, where grandfather did building and plaster work, as he was a mason by trade. When Mother was a young lady the family moved to Thomas Idaho and homesteaded some land. Mother her brother James, sister Nina and grandmother grubbed sage brush from the place, got the fields ready and planted them while grandfather worked in Blackfoot, going back and forth each day. The sage brush was so high the horses were lost in it once, so taking it all from the farm was a task. There was a large family and everyone worked very hard to make ends meet. Mother and her sister Nina had one calico dress between them which could be worn for best and when one went the other had to stay home. Later mother went back to Woodruff and worked for a dollar and a dollar and a half a week. While working at Uncle Peter Cornia’s she met father, they were married 25 June 1897 in the Salt Lake Temple. After Dell was born they built a log house with two rooms where their next four children were born. Altho they had little money we children were always well fed, neat and clean. Mother was a very good seamstress and we always had a new dress for Christmas and the fourth of July, they were made with many; tucks, lace and ruffles requiting much time and patience. She is a very ambitious and uncomplaining person. She worked in the Relief Society as a counselor for several years then as president for nine or ten years having as her counselors Nellie Neville and May Dean Brown. There was a great deal of work to be done in this capacity as help must come thru the Relief Society and when there was sickness or death someone had to sit up at night and no matter who cold, stormy or wet the weather she always seen that help was secured for those who needed it. She resigned from this position when she was obliged to on account of poor health. She never has to much to do or is to busy to help a friend or neighbor, and always our home was full of company and no crowd to big to be given food and a place to sleep. Her hobbies are chickens and flowers. (This story was transcribed as Cleo wrote it in her Book of Remembrance.)

My Grandmother Horton made me a log cabin quilt that had a navy blue backing on it. I still have the quilt. 2016. I used it on my bed when I was a little girl and loved to read the material that had Chinese sayings in it. A secret message just for me..

Life timeline of Mary Penninah Horton

1879
Mary Penninah Horton was born on 9 Sep 1879
Mary Penninah Horton was 8 years old when Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West Show opens in London. William Frederick "Buffalo Bill" Cody was an American scout, bison hunter, and showman. He was born in Le Claire, Iowa Territory, but he lived for several years in his father's hometown in Toronto Township, Ontario, Canada, before the family returned to the Midwest and settled in the Kansas Territory.
Mary Penninah Horton was 12 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.
Mary Penninah Horton was 24 years old when The Wright brothers make their first attempt to fly with the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were two American aviators, engineers, inventors, and aviation pioneers who are generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world's first successful airplane. They made the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft on December 17, 1903, four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In 1904–05 the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible.
Mary Penninah Horton was 38 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
Mary Penninah Horton was 49 years old when Walt Disney character Mickey Mouse premieres in his first cartoon, "Plane Crazy". Walter Elias Disney was an American entrepreneur, animator, voice actor and film producer. A pioneer of the American animation industry, he introduced several developments in the production of cartoons. As a film producer, Disney holds the record for most Academy Awards earned by an individual, having won 22 Oscars from 59 nominations. He was presented with two Golden Globe Special Achievement Awards and an Emmy Award, among other honors. Several of his films are included in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
Mary Penninah Horton was 60 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.
Mary Penninah Horton was 62 years old when World War II: The Imperial Japanese Navy made a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, intending to neutralize the United States Pacific Fleet from influencing the war Japan was planning to wage in Southeast Asia.

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.
