Cameron’s conversion to the gospel

Contributor: J.R. Hughlett Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

We lived in Carson City Nevada about 1955. Mom and dad (Cameron and Sadie) Karen - 5 yrs, Curt - 3 yrs, Steve - 2 yrs, and Janean a baby. We lived in an apartment of sorts called “Vets Housing”. It consisted of basically two rooms and a bathroom. One room was a living room/kitchen combination. The other room was a bedroom which we all slept in - the kids had a bunk bed. Dad worked for Bell Telephone Co. as a lineman - he would climb up and down the telephone poles doing whatever work was required. Mother was a member of the church already but not dad. Church members would talk to dad about the gospel but at the time, he was not interested. One of the church members was a man named Sterling McNight. He befriended dad quite a bit while we lived in Carson City. The children didn’t go to primary very often nor did we attend church. Mother and dad bought a little house which was moved onto an existing foundation in Carson City. It was a little house but bigger than Vets housing apartment. At that time, dad did side jobs of roofing houses in addition to working for the telephone company. Mother loved this house but we didnt get to live in it very long as dad got transferred to Reno, Nevada. We sold the little house, moved to a rental house in Sparks, Nevada and waited until our brand new 3 bedroom house on 1440 Prospect Ave was completed. (We were so excited about this house because it had a dishwasher in it!!!). A man named “Pop” Hollaman became our friend and especially dad’s friend. Dad eventually accepted the gospel and was baptized and confirmed the same day as Karen when she was 8 yrs. old. I -Karen, remember the water was very cold. We were baptized in the font at the old Prater Way building. That building was remodeled years later and the font was removed. A year after dad was baptized, he took mother, me, Curt, Steve, Janean and Susan to the Salt Lake Temple to be sealed. Dad was a faithful church member. He served at anything he was asked to do - even when he was called to be Bishop and he didn’t want to have that responsibility. He accepted anyway and served faithfully. I believe he was a Bishop twice in the Sparks area. He also served as a counselor to other bishops as well as served as a scout master and on the high council for our stake and a variety of other assignments. He fell in love with genealogy. He would get his records out every Sunday, spread out his work on the kitchen table and began writing letters and filling out pedigree forms as he found family members. He continued genealogy work throughout his life. He and mother served as missionaries at the genealogy library in Salt Lake City. He tried to introduced the gospel to his mother and sister, Margaret, but they weren’t interested. (Written by Karen Sydenham Leatham March 2018.)

My Family Childhood Memories by Karen

Contributor: J.R. Hughlett Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Mother used to tell me about the time when I was really little and got sick with pneumonia. Mother had to work so I was taken care of by a black lady. Mom said she was a very nice person and took good care of me. I was a chubby baby - but really just fat!! Dad would tell me that the fat would roll over my wrist and creases in my legs! There used to be a picture of me sitting in a pink dress and you could see the chubs! Mother worked so hard for our family. My memory is that we always had extra children that she would take care of besides her own. Dad worked hard also, but with such a large family, money was often in short supply. It seemed that when we needed a new piece of furniture or there was some other need, mother found children to take care of. Our house at the time was on 1440 Prospect Ave. in Sparks, Nev. It wasn’t very big but we made due. It had three bedrooms and one bathroom and I think five children - Curt, Steve, Janean and Susan and me. The two boys were in one room, the three girls in another and mom and dad’s room. The bedrooms were not carpeted, only the front room. We had a very large mirror on a wall in the living room. At Christmas time we would decorate it with aerosol snow and holiday stencils . It looked very festive however getting the mirror clean after the holidays was not a fun chore! Mother would say that we had “wall to wall people” at our house when we would all be together watching TV. There was enough floor space along with couch and chair spaces but with so many growing children, we pretty well covered the floor! Our black and white TV ? had tubes in it and if it ever didn’t work, dad would take the tubes out of the back of the TV, take them down to the grocery store, plug the tubes into the testing machine to see which tube didn’t work. He would identify that tube, purchase the new one, take it home, add the new tube and hope it worked - which it usually did! It seems to me that Friday nights had a boxing match on TV and since there was only one channel to watch, boxing was it! It never was my favorite thing to watch but dad enjoyed it. Sunday nights were fun as we watched “The Wonderful World of Disney”. It was always good. The nature shows were always great but my favorite was when there was a Disney cartoon. There was also a western show called “Bonanza “. It was on later in the evening but only as we got older were we allowed to stay up to see it! Good times!! We needed to do some work on the interior of our house to accommodate all of our family. The dining room and kitchen were one small room and we came to a point we just didn’t fit anymore. Dad remodeled the room by taking part of the front room and made a very large dining room and kitchen. It did make the front room smaller but the dining room now offered us a place to have a good sized table and chairs for us all to sit at for meals. It really was great. Dad laid the prettiest white and teal linoleum tile floor. It took quite a while for him to finish it because it had a specific layout that was carefully laid. There was a problem with it though. It got so dirty with all of us walking and running on it and especially black scuff marks showed like a neon sign. I can remember coming home from school and smell “Pine Sol” cleaner and I would know that mother had been down on her hands and knees probably all day cleaning that floor. There was not one black mark on it. We did help out in the summer with cleaning that floor and it was real pretty when fresh clean. Mom was also a great furniture mover!! We would often come home from school and the furniture would be re-arranged from when we left that morning! She just liked a bit of change, I guess! Our house was clean. Saturday’s seemed to be cleaning day!! Floors were dusted, (under beds too), vacuuming done, bathroom cleaning, etc. Often the boys did yard work and the girls did the house. We did have chores to do during the week to keep the house clean. There was always laundry to be done. For a long while we didn’t have a dryer - we hung our clothes on a clothesline outside! The clothes smelled so good and fresh. Many times if it started to rain, we would dash out to get the clothes in before they got wet. There was a time though, when dad had found a boat (where it came from, don’t remember) and he fixed it up so well that for at least two summers that I remember, we would take the boat to the lake to swim and water ski. It was great fun!! It seemed that Mother was always making potato salad for our trips to the lake. She probably got pretty tired of it but she never said anything. Sunday’s were always nice days.

Life timeline of Sadie Beth Sydenham

Sadie Beth Sydenham was born on 13 Feb 1929
Sadie Beth Sydenham was 11 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.
Sadie Beth Sydenham was 11 years old when The Holocaust: The first prisoners arrive at a new concentration camp at Auschwitz. The Holocaust, also referred to as the Shoah, was a genocide during World War II in which Nazi Germany, aided by its collaborators, systematically murdered some six million European Jews, around two-thirds of the Jewish population of Europe, between 1941 and 1945. Jews were targeted for extermination as part of a larger event involving the persecution and murder of other groups, including in particular the Roma and "incurably sick", as well as ethnic Poles and other Slavs, Soviet citizens, Soviet prisoners of war, political opponents, gay men and Jehovah's Witnesses, resulting in up to 17 million deaths overall.
Sadie Beth Sydenham was 29 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
Sadie Beth Sydenham was 36 years old when Martin Luther King Jr. received the Nobel Peace Prize for combating racial inequality through nonviolence. Martin Luther King Jr. was an American Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement from 1954 until his death in 1968. Born in Atlanta, King is best known for advancing civil rights through nonviolence and civil disobedience, tactics his Christian beliefs and the nonviolent activism of Mahatma Gandhi helped inspire.
Sadie Beth Sydenham was 44 years old when Munich massacre: Nine Israeli athletes die (along with a German policeman) at the hands of the Palestinian "Black September" terrorist group after being taken hostage at the Munich Olympic Games. Two other Israeli athletes were slain in the initial attack the previous day. The Munich massacre was an attack during the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, West Germany, in which the Palestinian terrorist group Black September took eleven Israeli Olympic team members hostage and killed them along with a West German police officer.
Sadie Beth Sydenham was 60 years old when The tanker Exxon Valdez spilled 10.8 million US gallons (260,000 bbl; 41,000 m3) of oil into Prince William Sound, Alaska, causing one of the most devastating man-made maritime environmental disasters. A tanker is a ship designed to transport or store liquids or gases in bulk. Major types of tankship include the oil tanker, the chemical tanker, and gas carrier. Tankers also carry commodities such as vegetable oils, molasses and wine. In the United States Navy and Military Sealift Command, a tanker used to refuel other ships is called an oiler but many other navies use the terms tanker and replenishment tanker.
Sadie Beth Sydenham was 70 years old when Columbine High School massacre: Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed 13 people and injured 24 others before committing suicide at Columbine High School in Columbine, Colorado. The Columbine High School massacre was a school shooting that occurred on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School in Columbine, an unincorporated area of Jefferson County, Colorado, United States, in the Denver metropolitan area. In addition to the shootings, the complex and highly planned attack involved a fire bomb to divert firefighters, propane tanks converted to bombs placed in the cafeteria, 99 explosive devices, and car bombs. The perpetrators, senior students Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, murdered 12 students and one teacher. They injured 21 additional people, and three more were injured while attempting to escape the school. The pair subsequently committed suicide.
Sadie Beth Sydenham was 75 years old when Facebook, a mainstream online social networking site, is founded by Mark Zuckerberg. Facebook is an American online social media and social networking service company based in Menlo Park, California.
