Memories from Daughter Zora

Contributor: mike Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

WRITTEN BY ZORA ELLINGFORD SMITH At one time my brother, Gilbert Ellingford was very sick, Mother had asked my father several times to let her have the Elders come in and administer to him, but father always refused. Finally the Doctors said they could not do anymore for him. Mother started crying and again asked if she could have the Elders in. Father told her if she would fell better by so doing, to go ahead. As the Elders administered to Gilbert, Dad said he saw a ***** expression go over his face and from then on he started to improve. I have heard my father say he told Mother if she believed in anything that could do things like that, he thought it was time he started to investigate . It wasn't so very long after, that my father was baptized into the church. I can remember very well when my father used to smoke. He said he had wished many times that he were in a position so that he might baptize me. One day Bishop Horace Morrill came up to him and asked him how long it would take him to quit smoking if he gave his word that he would quite, My father answered and said, "Bishop if I give you my word that I will quite, I will." The Bishop said, "I am taking that as your word that you will quite. Come on to Vernal Sunday and be ordained an Elder." Dad said he really wanted to smoke but rather than have Bishop Morrill lose faith in him he gave up his smoking. Therefore he was not only able to baptize me, but also to confirm me. He used to pass the Sacrament when he was a grown man. He also herded sheep for a good many years.

Thomas John Ellingford: A Brief History of My Life

Contributor: mike Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

*Written to a granddaugher, found in the papers of Lurrine Moosmann Bartlett. I don’t think he wrote it to her; I think it might have to been one of her cousins.* I was born in England in the city of London on the 26 September 1873. I am the second child of John and Emily Clark Ellingford, who are my parents. We came to America when I was a small boy, I think that was about the year of 1881. We came to Utah and stopped in a little place called “Round Valley.” From there, we moved to South Morgan, in Morgan County, Utah, where I lived until after I was 21 years, and then I went to Lyman, Wyoming and famed on my brother’s place, and while there, I met your grandmother and married her on the 22nd of October 1901. She is the daughter of Joseph Christian and Amanda Twitchell Hoopes. We lived on a little place of our own. I did not stay there all the time. Part of the time, I herded sheep, and part of the time, I worked on the railroad and at the coal mine. After the mine closed down, I moved back to Lyman and farmed for a while. It was about this time that I became converted to the church and was baptized on the 12th of August 1911 and your daddy was baptized the same day (referring to his son, Orvel). From then on, I have been quite active in the church. I was married in the temple on the 22nd of October 1924, just 23 years after I was married by the bishop of the Lyman ward.

Life timeline of Thomas John Ellingford

1873
Thomas John Ellingford was born on 26 Sep 1873
Thomas John Ellingford was 10 years old when Eruption of Krakatoa: Four enormous explosions destroy the island of Krakatoa and cause years of climate change. The 1883 eruption of Krakatoa in the Dutch East Indies began in the afternoon of Sunday, 26 August 1883, and peaked in the late morning of Monday, 27 August when over 70% of the island and its surrounding archipelago were destroyed as it collapsed into a caldera. Additional seismic activity was reported to have continued until February 1884, though reports of seismic activity after October 1883 were later dismissed by Rogier Verbeek's investigation into the eruption. The 1883 eruption was one of the deadliest and most destructive volcanic events in recorded history. At least 36,417 deaths are attributed to the eruption and the tsunamis it created. Significant additional effects were also felt around the world in the days and weeks after the volcano's eruption.
Thomas John Ellingford was 19 years old when Electrical engineer Nikola Tesla gives the first public demonstration of radio in St. Louis, Missouri. Nikola Tesla was a Serbian American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist who is best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system.
Thomas John Ellingford was 30 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.
Thomas John Ellingford was 43 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.
Thomas John Ellingford was 47 years old when The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, guaranteeing women's suffrage in America. The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens of the United States on the basis of sex. It was adopted on August 18, 1920.
Thomas John Ellingford was 57 years old when Great Depression: In a State of the Union message, U.S. President Herbert Hoover proposes a $150 million (equivalent to $2,197,000,000 in 2017) public works program to help generate jobs and stimulate the economy. The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, beginning in the United States. The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations; in most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until the late-1930s. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression of the 20th century. In the 21st century, the Great Depression is commonly used as an example of how far the world's economy can decline.
Thomas John Ellingford was 72 years old when World War II: Combat ends in the Pacific Theater: The Japanese Instrument of Surrender is signed by Japanese Foreign Minister Mamoru Shigemitsu and accepted aboard the battleship USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay. The Pacific War, sometimes called the Asia-Pacific War, was the theater of World War II that was fought in the Pacific and Asia. It was fought over a vast area that included the Pacific Ocean and islands, the South West Pacific, South-East Asia, and in China.
Thomas John Ellingford died on 23 Mar 1952 at the age of 78
