Ferrell's Memories of Her Father

Contributor: Rob.Stevenson Created: 3 years ago Updated: 5 months ago

My mother, Ferrell, never put it in so many words, but it was obvious that her father's death when she was in her early teens had been devastating to her. She adored him. I think my mother respected her father more than any other individual I can think of. She didn't idealize him, she just respected him, with all her heart. Once she told me that if he ever owed anyone a dollar, he couldn't be content until it was paid. But if anyone owed him a dollar, he wanted it paid also. Grandfather was a young man when he was out with his father and brothers building a home. A log broke loose on the roof and was rolling down right toward great-grandfather. Rob threw himself into the path to save his father, but the effort to halt the log took a toll on his heart. He was poorly for years after that. I don't really know how much he had recovered by the time he met Grandma, or even how early they did meet. In Grandma's autograph book, there is an entry that reads, "Happy is the cat, happy is the kitten. Happy is the young man Miss Clara gave the mitten." It is signed Rob Egbert. I have often heard of the great campaign that went on to dissuade Grandmother from marrying the handsome young man saying that he would never live to raise their family. They did have their marriage cut short, but they were able to have a wonderful family of six children. The youngest was only about two when Grandpa died. Grandpa and Grandma started out their married life in a sheep wagon, as I understand it. Grandpa was always in the sheep raising business. He lived long enough to become a very successful sheepherder, and left Grandmother well fixed for raising the family. Mother told me of a time when the family was gathered in the living room. She and her sister were studying, when someone started teasing my aunt. She got very upset and threw the old-fashioned pen across the room. It stuck in Grandpa's hand. He remained very calm, and said in a quiet voice, "Tessie, you need to get that temper under control or it will cause you great unhappiness." Mother said the effect on both girls was just heart-wrenching. Nothing he could have done would have made either of them feel worse. Grandfather was a progressive sort of person. Mother said that the week he died, they notified Grandmother of the delivery of the first automobile in West Jordan. One of the other Egbert relatives took it. My grandparents were generous with their worldly goods, Mother told me that on Christmas mornings they would usually be visited by some other families in the neighborhood, and it always amazed her how there was always a package under the tree for the visiting children, sometimes a very beautiful doll. Her mother once commented to her that the Christmas doll was probably the only doll the child had ever had. Grandmother was a widow for 51 years.

BIOGRAPHY OF ROBERT COWAN EGBERT

Contributor: Rob.Stevenson Created: 3 years ago Updated: 5 months ago

Robert Cowan Egbert was born 4 September in West Jordan Salt Lake,Utah Territory to Samuel and Louisa Minerva Petty Egbert.  He was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on 10 June 1877 at the age of twelve. His parents were married on 11 March 1857 in Salt Lake City, Salt, Utah Territory. They had eight children. Robert was the fourth child born to them.  They had five girls and three boys.             His father married a second wife Margaret Mariah Beckstead, on 11 March 1857.  They had fourteen children, six girls and eight boys. They settled in West Jordan, Salt Lake, Utah Territory.                His family came to Great Salt Lake, Deseret with the Allen Taylor Company in 1849.  His father Samuel was 25, his first wife Margaret Mariah was 25; Martha Ann was 5; and Susannah was 1.  They departed on 5 July 1849 with 369 in the company.             They had problems with the cattle stampeding especially at night when they would corral them.  The plains near Fort Kearney were covered with buffalo.  They had to travel slowly because of fear of buffalo stampeding. As they traveled along the Platte River,they saw a lone tree which was the only tree for miles around. There was a dead Indian papoose in top of the tree, the Indians’ way ofburying their dead.            From the journal of Margaret Gay Judd Clawson:  “On the fourth of July we camped for the day not entirely to celebrate, but to wash and do mending and various other things that were necessary. We camped in a pretty place near a creek.” They arrived in the Great Salt Lake valley on 10 October 1849.          Robert married Clara Porter Bradford on 13 March 1889 in West Jordan, Salt Lake, Utah Territory. Clara was born 12 January 1866 in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, Utah Territory to Larkin Harris and Annie Lazenbury Rex Davis. She was baptized on 13 June 1877 at the age of eleven. She was 23 years old when they married. Her father was first married to his first couse in Mary Porter Harkreader who died shortly after the marriage. Annie was the mother of all his children. He was sealed to six other women (first wife included) who were relatives of Annie. They were sealed posthumously. Her father served in the Civil War in 1862. He was captured and was in a military prison in 1863. When he returned home again, Mary was dead. Possibly she died in childbirth, but no records show the cause of death or when. After the war ended he headed to California. He made it as far as Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, Utah Territory where he met Annie. Her mother came to Utah Territory with the Joseph Horne Company in 1861. There were 223 individuals and 62 wagons in the company which began its journey from the outfitting post at Florence (now present day Omaha) Nebraska. Th wagons each had four yoke of cattle. There were twelve people assigned to each wagon. Because it was so crowded they slept under the stars. Thirty three member of the camp died because of sickness. Onetime they had a band of Sioux Indians all dressed in war paint and feathers. They demanded to know where they were going. They told them they were Mormons and headed for Utah. They left them to go in peace. They had made it to Big Mountain by 10 September 1861. They had to walk the whole way down Big Mountain because of the steep grade the heavily loaded wagons. They reached the Salt Lake valley on 13 September 1861. They settled in Salt Lake city and Her parents had eleven children, five girls and six boys. Clara was the oldest born to them. Robert and Clara had six children, two girls and four boys, all born in West Jordan, Salt Lake, Utah. Tessie Florence was born 11 October 1889;Robert Glen was born 13 August 1891; Clara Ferrell was born 25 October 1892; Moss Leal was born 11 June 1900; Valgy Merto was born 7 November 1901; and Larkin Harris was born 8 March 1906. Robert was a farmer and raised sheep. He died on 19 March 1908 of Endocarditis, which means that there is bacteria surrounding the heart. He was only 43 years old. He was buried on 23 March 1908 in the West Jordan Cemetery, Salt Lake, Utah. Clara raised the children which ranged from 18 down to two years old. She died on 30 May 1959 in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, Utah at the age of 93 and was buried on 2 June 1959 in the West Jordan Cemetery, Salt Lake, Utah.

Ferrell's Memories of Her Father

Contributor: noproblem Created: 1 year ago Updated: 5 months ago

My mother, Ferrell, never put it in so many words, but it was obvious that her father's death when she was in her early teens had been devastating to her. She adored him. I think my mother respected her father more than any other individual I can think of. She didn't idealize him, she just respected him, with all her heart. Once she told me that if he ever owed anyone a dollar, he couldn't be content until it was paid. But if anyone owed him a dollar, he wanted it paid also. Grandfather was a young man when he was out with his father and brothers building a home. A log broke loose on the roof and was rolling down right toward great-grandfather. Rob threw himself into the path to save his father, but the effort to halt the log took a toll on his heart. He was poorly for years after that. I don't really know how much he had recovered by the time he met Grandma, or even how early they did meet. In Grandma's autograph book, there is an entry that reads, "Happy is the cat, happy is the kitten. Happy is the young man Miss Clara gave the mitten." It is signed Rob Egbert. I have often heard of the great campaign that went on to dissuade Grandmother from marrying the handsome young man saying that he would never live to raise their family. They did have their marriage cut short, but they were able to have a wonderful family of six children. The youngest was only about two when Grandpa died. Grandpa and Grandma started out their married life in a sheep wagon, as I understand it. Grandpa was always in the sheep raising business. He lived long enough to become a very successful sheepherder, and left Grandmother well fixed for raising the family. Mother told me of a time when the family was gathered in the living room. She and her sister were studying, when someone started teasing my aunt. She got very upset and threw the old-fashioned pen across the room. It stuck in Grandpa's hand. He remained very calm, and said in a quiet voice, "Tessie, you need to get that temper under control or it will cause you great unhappiness." Mother said the effect on both girls was just heart-wrenching. Nothing he could have done would have made either of them feel worse. Grandfather was a progressive sort of person. Mother said that the week he died, they notified Grandmother of the delivery of the first automobile in West Jordan. One of the other Egbert relatives took it. My grandparents were generous with their worldly goods, Mother told me that on Christmas mornings they would usually be visited by some other families in the neighborhood, and it always amazed her how there was always a package under the tree for the visiting children, sometimes a very beautiful doll. Her mother once commented to her that the Christmas doll was probably the only doll the child had ever had. Grandmother was a widow for 51 years.

There was a dead Indian papoose in top of the tree, the Indians’ way ofburying their dead.            From the journal of Margaret Gay Judd Clawson:  “On the fourth of July we camped for the day not entirely to celebrate, but to wash and do mending and various other things that were necessary.
