James William Parsons Family Reunion 1914

Contributor: debbyrex Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

ARTICLE SENT TO COUNTY PAPER by Hettie P Fackrell year- 1914 Thomas, Idaho– The very first James Parsons reunion held in the Thomas Hall A get together that will long be remembered was held in the Thomas Hall on Tuesday in the style of a reunion of the family or descendants of James Parsons and wife Mary Abanatha. Altogether about 125 members of this family were present. Peter C. Fjeldsted was chosen as chairman and Master of Ceremonies, a position he filled with much credit, and he kept the ball rolling until the wee hours of the morning. Among those present were Mr and Mrs George W. Parsons from Brigham City, Utah: Frank Parsons from Missouri: and 21 families now permanently located in or around Blackfoot The program consisted of songs, readings, musical selections, etc. from the following persons: Miss Ana Parsons, Helen Goodwin, Bishop John R. Williams, Mable Adams (now Turpen), Amenda Parsons, R. N.Hoare, Julious Noack, Mrs Myrtle Parsons, and the Slack brothers Orchestra gave several selections, which were of high class and helped materially in enlivening the fine program. At 11 o’clock the benches were cleared from the center of the floor and everyone present took part in dancing. One pleasant feature of the dancing was that all of the older folks took part. The floor manager permitting all over forty to rag all they wanted too with no restrictions whatsoever. While the dancing was in progress or full swing, the younger ladies prepared hot coffee , sandwiches, chicken, pie cake and other dainties. At two o’clock the party broke up, all hoping it would be the first of an annual reunion, so that the young and rising generation of the Parson’s family will grow up to be members with great satisfaction with their parents and their pioneering spirit. We hope this marks the beginning of many happy times to be Franklin J. Parsons attended the first James Parsons get together in 1914 and several members of his family were there also. He stayed for a few years and then returned to the East. He died 10 July, 1927 in Harrisville, Missouri and they buried him at Hopewell Cemetery in Henry County

Contributor: debbyrex Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Peter John Fjeldsted was hunting in the Logan Canyon Mountains with his son Peter Christian Felsted (spelling of last name changed to simplify the spelling and pronunciation for others). They came across a Grizzly bear. The Grizzly bear charged them ready to attack. Peter John told his son, Peter Christian, to climb a tree as fast as he could. Peter John had a gun with only 9 bullets. He stood his ground shot all 9 bullets. The bear fell only after the last of the 9 bullets were shot. He fell right at Peter John's feet.

Conversion Story of Bodild Hansen Jensen

Contributor: debbyrex Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Bodild Clausen lived in Denmark about 1850 with her husband, Jens Peter Jensen and three children. They lived on a farm with a mill that belonged to her father-in-law, Jens Jorgensen. One night in about 1859 her husband came home and said he had to go to the coast with his father early the next morning to sell a load of flour. Bertha got up early the next day to fix them breakfast and lunches for the journey. When they left she got busy cleaning their home and forgot about the time. About noon she stopped to fix lunch. Just as she and the children were sitting down to eat there was a knock at the door. She went to the door and there stood two young men. Now her father-in-law was a county commissioner and he was used to giving orders. He had said that there were two strange men in town and no one was to talk to them. She heard them talking but she couldn't understand them. She knew she wasn't supposed to talk to them and she just wanted to get rid of them without hurting their feelings. Then they stopped talking and just looked at her. She knew she had to say something, but what? Then she noticed how thin they were and she asked if they had had a meal that day. One said they hadn't eaten in three days. All she said was, "Come in and eat with us." Four hours later they left and she was converted to the Gospel. When her husband came home she told him what had happened and asked him to talk to the missionaries. He said if he did, his father would kick them off the farm. She said she didn't know about him but she was going to be baptized. She was baptized on 4 April 1859 and her father-in-law forced them to leave. They got along well until winter when her husband, who was not used to working outside, got sick and died on January 5,1861. Bodild had no where to go, no family support and no money. A member family who lived a few days away invited her to come and stay with them. She and her little children walked to their new friends' carrying everything they owned on their backs. Later her father-in-law came to see her. He said if she would come back, he would take care of her and her children but she must stop going to church. She said the price was too high. He left but he did give her some money. With that money and some help from other church members Bodild and her children were able to come to America. She and her children joined a wagon train and walked most of the way to Salt Lake City. Upon their arrival in Salt Lake Bodild was able to obtain a wheel barrow which they loaded with their meager possessions and pushed to Logan. There she spent the rest of her life supporting her self by raising goats. Her daughter, Bertha Marie Jensed who had walked most of the long journey west grew up and married John Peter Fjeldsted they had a son named Peter Christian Felsted. Peter Christian's son was my father Harold Ney Felsted. Story told by William Ney Felsted,

Peter Christian Felsted Served in the Spanish American Was May 1898 - October 1899

Contributor: debbyrex Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

This is a history compiled by someone else, probably Golden Grace Fjeldsted, Peter's daughter. I found this history in my father's, LaNay Felsted Family History collection. I have scanned the original document into the picture album found under Peter's Christian Felsted's name and several pictures that were handed down to me through my father. The pictures go along with his history. Here is the history in Peter's own words. "I joined up with the army on the 3rd of May 1898. On the 24th of June we went aboard the steamship, Morgan City, and embarked for the Philippine Islands. On August 5th we landed in the little town of Paranaca and immediately went into action against the Spaniards. On August 13th the enemy was defeated and surrendered. "We established barracks in the little village of Malatta, two miles south of Manila. Our work was garrison duty, consisting of guard duty, protecting government property, guarding Nationalists and holding down insurrections until the 4th of February 1899. The seventeen miles of front line was attacked on the night of February the 4th. Each regiment knew the position they should occupy on the line. The position that our regiment held was in front of Santa Ana, in the horseshoe bend on the Pasag River. When daylight arrived we were ready for the frontal charge on the enemies. We drove them from their breastworks on the Santa Ana to the banks of the Pasag River. About a thousand surrendered and several thousand tried to escape by swimming the huge river, which was about 125 yards wide and from six to 10 feet deep. Many of the enemy escaped but hundreds were shot in this battle. Approximately ten thousand men were killed, wounded, or taken prisoner. Our American losses were light because of our enemy's poor marksmanship. "In the month of May, reinforcements had arrived in enough numbers to enable the army to send a detachment of seventeen hundred men to China, which included the 1st Volunteer Infantry, the 9th Infantry and the 2nd Company of the 14th Infantry, where we were sent to put down the Boxers rebellion. We stayed in Tin Sin, China most of the time and poverty and suffering met our eyes on all sides there also. "We embarked for the United States on the 31st of September 1899."

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.
Peter C Fjelsted was 38 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.
