Lettie Cornelia Hendricks
      Lettie Cornelia Hendricks was born on 7-May-1878 at Lewiston, Cache County, Utah. She was the daughter of William Dorris Hendricks and Almira Davenport. Lettie married Daniel Isaac Thompson, son of William David Thompson and Mary Ellen Isaacson, on 14-Mar-1900 at Logan Temple, Logan, Cache County, Utah.

The family moved to Richmond when she was a small girl and she received most of her education in the Richmond schools. She did, however, go to school
in Mexico for approximately three years, which in itself added greatly to her education. She married 1st DANIEL ISAAC THOMPSON on 14 Mar. 1900 in the Logan Temple and this marriage was blessed with two children.

Sorrow came to the family, when in Sept. of 1903 their baby boy passed away, and just two months later on 17 Nov. 1903, Daniel died from a heart ailment and was buried in Richmond, Ut.

Lettie and her little girl lived with her mother in Richmond and she obtained employment at the Sego Milk Plant until her marriage to JAMES HALLEY STOCKS on 4 Jan 1905. She and her daughter moved to Lewiston, Ut. with her husband, where they made their home. This marriage was blessed with six children. After the marriage of all of her children, Lettie took maternity patients into her home and also went to other homes to take care of maternity patients, to help earn a living after James had a stroke. On 20 Apr. 1941, James Halley (Hall) Stocks had another stroke and died. Lettie married 3rd LOUIS EDGAR MERRILL. Lettie has always been noted as an excellent cook and her home has always been well kept. She had very beautiful flowers and a wonderful garden in which she took a lot of pride.



Lettie Corneila Hendricks Thompson Stocks Merrill
As remembered by LaFaun Johnson, Granddaughter

I remember my Grandmother as being a very tall well dressed lady. I guess because I was so little she seemed so big. She was always dressed in a long sleeved dress with an apron. As I got older I found that she was just as fussy about her under clothes as she was her outside clothes. She always wore long bloomers, over her garments, plus a full girdle which included her bra, from the shoulders to the top of her legs. She then wore a slip , long stockings and then her dress and apron. She liked her dresses to have at least half length if not long sleeves. She was so particular about her clothes and how she looked. She also wore earrings, and sometimes a pin on her dress.

I can remember that later in life she was always saving her pretty slips to be buried in. I think there was at least four or five brand new slips in her drawer for that purpose.

Grandma liked to have her washing on the line before any of her neighbors. If she didn't beat them putting her clothes on the 1 inc she was very upset. She would rise very early to be sure and be the first one. She always washed with a wringer type washer and a rinse round tin tub.

Grandma was a very hard worker and her home was always very neat and clean. She was very fussy about her bedding and she washed the bedding every week. Her pillow cases were always crocheted and ironed to perfection. She would wash on Monday, iron on Tuesday as long as I knew her.

I was named after my Grandmother and I loved her very much. She was not the easiest person to please and not all of her grandchildren tried to please her. Maybe that came from living next door or across the street from her. I lived clear up in Washington and so only saw her on special trips that were not very often. After we moved to Lewiston I spent a lot more time at her home. She loved to eat her meals on the two bread boards that pulled out from her cupboard. She loved to eat home canned tomatoes and bread and butter. Also she loved raspberries. I can remember many a meal with her eating these two things. She had a cook stove plus an electrical stove in her kitchen as long as I could remember her. She loved to get up in the morning and heat up the cook stove and make baking powder biscuts[sic] and so with out mush we always had hot biscuts[sic] to eat with lots of butter and jam.

I can only remember Grandpa at the breakfast table once and he kept running out of cream on his cereal . Grandma would cuss him and keep adding more cream and tell him to eat a little mush along with the cream.

She always drank coffee and so I can remember the smell of coffee as I woke up. I never even tasted it so to this day I only know about the smell of coffee. However if I slip and get some things made of coffee like ice cream or a candy I just about gag. So I guess I just wouldn't like it. I really don't like hot drinks. Grandma did and so she also had tea a lot. I used to be given tea , or ginger tea when I came to her house with monthly uglies and didn't feel good. To this day I can't stand the smell of tea, or ginger. However I love ginger cookies, what happened.

Grandma used to always have some kind of candy hid in her closet which she would give to me on the sly so that the rest of the kids didn't see. She wouldn't give it to them. I liked the attention at first but as I got older it was not so much fun to have something that my bothers and sisters didn't have.

I remember Grandma sitting by the hours playing soli tare. She would read the paper at night and then sit and play cards. If she could get me to we would play hearts. I think Margene and some of the other kids liked to play cards with her. However I never played cards at home and so didn't care to much for it. I did learn to like Flinch and so played that some.

I used to get so tired of listening to her read the paper. She always read it out loud and I just wanted to read the funny book or something that I was doing but I always had to listen to her read the evening paper.

She was a very good cook and people use to rave about her cooking. My mom tells me that she can remember when grandma would stay home from church to fix a big Sunday meal while the rest of them went to church with grandpa. Everyone raved about her cooking and so I'm sure she was very good. The girls and her boys all were excellent cooks and so I'm sure they got this from their mom.

I can remember her rolling out pie crust and making delisious[sic] tasting pies. I also liked her meat loaf. I don't know how different it was than any other but it is something that I can remember.

I was at grandmas when I was about 14, and Amber was having a baby. All I can remember is that I felt I had to do a lot of goffer work and Aunt Amber called me a grumble bum. I guess I must have been.

Grandma was a maternity nurse and always had women come to her home to have their babies. I only remember about the one of Ambers, I don't even know for sure who it was.

I can remember a few funeral bodies being layed out in her front room. I can remember looking at Grandma Last. I thought he was the best person I could remember. He ran a candy store and I used to love to go and get a pennys worth of candy. I always came away with a sack full. I can also remember others there but I don't know now who they were.

Grandma always had a beautiful garden. I can remember her always bending over and I could see her bloomers. She would always bend straight over from the waist. She raised beautiful flowers. I will always remember the sweet peas growing on her fence. I loved the smell of them and they always looked so pretty. She always had some Holly hocks at the back of her garden. And around the side of the house I can remember lots of green flowers leaves and orange flowers.

I can remember that she always put her hair up on curlers. And when she combed it out they would go right back into the little rolled curls around her head. She taught me how to put rags curls in my hair. I couldn't stand to sleep on curlers. Her hair was always dark brown. Even when she got older her hair didn't turn grey very early. She had black or dark brown hair on the back of, her head the last time I ever remember seeing her.

Grandma loved to quilt and so she was always making or quilting or tying quilts. I can remember going to Relief Society as a little girl and my Grandma quilting. I guess I come by it naturally. I also love to work on quilts.

Grandma also crocheted. I learned to do that and embroidery from her. She loved pretty and nice things and so she was always making something to decorate or make things look nice. I don't remember her knitting and so I don't know it she ever did that or not.

I can remember when she came to Washington when I was about eight. Grandpa brought us a big bunch of suckers and he made the mistake of giving them to Thad or Sharon and Grandma took then away from them and said " we can't give them candy before supper" I can remember he didn't agree with her but she won the battle as she gave me the suckers and I had to put them up to be divided later after supper.

I also remember her coming when Nola was born. She had to sleep in my bed and I was left on the coutch[sic] where I could watch and see if Santa came. He put a chair with something on it and I didn't see anything.

Grandma could be very cross and down right mean to some of the kids and so my sister Hallie hated her. I can remember Hallie went up and said Grandma I love you and she couldn't hear and supposed her to be begging for something and so she slapped her and sent her away. I don't think Hallie ever forgave her.

She used to sit and look out her front room windows. She always knew who was coming and going and what everyone was doing . She blamed the neighbors for leaving her water running and for turning on her burner and leaving it going. I know that she did these things herself but she would never admit to it.

She always layed down and took a little cat map after lunch. She never slept , mind you, but she would snore so loud you could hear her all over the house. That is until she would wake herself up and cuss whoever happened to be around for making so much noise that she couldn't rest.

She would write me letters and I don't know if I ever wrote her back or not.

I loved my Grandma and would love to have all children love a grandma like I did.

When she died I was married and expecting Jana, I think. I was living in Seattle and so I didn't get to go to the funeral. I'm sure that she gave people around her all the time a much harder time than she ever gave me.

Grandma was very particular about being well dressed and yet I heard she would run around the nursing home with nothing on. I guess we just have to try different things.

I am only one of the many granddaughters that she had and so I'm sure that if each one would write the things you can remember about grandma we would get a pretty good picture of her.

Rebecca Hendricks
      Rebecca Hendricks was born on 30-Jan-1868 at Richmond, Cache County, Utah. She was the daughter of William Dorris Hendricks and Almira Davenport. Rebecca married Alma Merrill, son of Mariner Wood Merrill and Sarah Ann Atkinson, on 31-Jul-1886 at Logan, Cache County, Utah. Rebecca Hendricks died on 9-Aug-1943 at Richmond, Cache County, Utah, at age 75. Rebecca was buried on 13-Aug-1943 at Richmond, Cache County, Utah.
     

She was a triplet, being the last born of three daughters. During their girlhood days they were referred to as "Mira's three" and the townspeople, when hearing a racket on the street, would say, "Well, I guess Mira's three are out". She attended the district schools until she was seventeen, and a pri­vate school for one year under the direction of Miss Ida Cook from the Brigham Young College. At the age of eighteen, Rebecca became the second wife of ALMA MERRILL and was married in the Logan Temple 30 July 1886, with the full consent of the first wife, her sister, Rilda, who was present at the marriage. Rebecca was the mother of fifteen children six boys and nine girls five of them dying in infancy. Rebecca was a devoted and true mother in Israel. At the death of Rilda, the first wife, she remembered the words of her dying sister; "Rebecca, take care of my children." This she did, immediately moving the two large families together, mothering and rearing all of them as only a real mother could do. Her burden was heavy but she carried it bravely and honorably, treating her sister's children as she did her own. After they were married and gone she always welcomed Rilda's children into the home with open arms, until the day she died. For seven years after the death of her husband 17 Jan. 1936 in Richmond, she lived alone in the big twelve room house. Her doors were always open to relatives and friends who loved her dearly.



History and Autobiography of the Life of Rebecca Hendricks Merrill

The family is undebted to Iola Merrill Linford Stocking and to Vermont Merrill Anderson for much of this history. Part of it was dicatated to Iola by Rebecca Hendricks Merrill on July 3, 1937, at Salt Lake City, Utah, who typed it and gave a copy of it to Vermont for safe keeping.

-----------------

Richmond, Utah, was first settled in the fall of 1859, and when the father of this subject, William Dorris Hendricks with his families moved there to help make a permanent settlement there were only a few people who had built homes with the intention of staying.

He was of a sturdy pioneer stock from Kentucky with a good heritage. At an eraly age of 16 years, we find him crossing the plains in the Brigham Young company, making that trek of a thousand miles of dreary waste into the vastness of the rugged Rockies. It was while enroute that the United States Government called for 500 volunteers, who made up the famous "Mormon Battalion." It made one of the longest marches, eduring some of the greatest hardships of any army in United States recorded history.

The writer of this history next finds him springing into prominence in Richmond, Utah, on January 30, 1869, when his wife, Almira Davenport Hendricks, the third of a polygamist marriage, gave birth to triplet girls. The first to be born was Katherine Hendrticks Tippetts, then Ellen Hendricks Walton and last was Rebecca Hendricks Merrill, the subject of this history.

Less than one year before, on February 26, 1868, the Utah Terretorial Legislature incorporated Richmond into a city and on May 28, 1868, William Dorris Hendricks was elected as its first Mayor.
With this brief background the writer now turns to the history and autobiography of Rebecca Hendricks Merrill, and will give part of it in her own words as she dictated it to her granddaughter, Iola Linford Stocking, on July 3, 1937.

"I am the daughter of William Dorris Hendricks and Almira Davenport. I was born in Richmond, Utah, January 30, 1869. I am a triplet and was the last one born. My other triplet sisters were KAtherine Hendricks Tippetts and Ellen Hendricks Walton. I have outlived both of my sisters by many years. When we were born our outlived both of my sisters by many years. When we were born our mother had a baby, Esmerilda - just fifteen months old. In those early days mothers had a hard time getting things together for an expected baby. It was still in oxcart days and all supplies had to be brough from Salt LAke City, Utah, a distance of approximately one hundred miles, and a long hard journey. So mother just had one layette ready for the baby - two suits of clothes and a dozen diapers. After the first two of the triplets were born, my grandmother, Driscilla Dorris Hendricks ran to her daughter (Katherine VanNoy) and said, "get out all your baby clothes, Mira's got two babies and another coming."

In the spring after we were born, my father want to Salt Lake City, to get some material for baby clothes. He came back with a bolt of white material with a black stripe in it. Mother was so disappointed that she cried. Her mother Driscilla Dorris Hendricks went and got her temple robe and cut it up and made the babies dresses, so they could have their pictures taken. The picture was mother, Esmirilda and the Triplets.

The first school I attended was at Coveville, Utah, (Just north of Richmond). It was a one room school house and I attended one term. Next I went to Lewiston, Utah. At this school we had one long table and we sat on two by four planks. We lived at Lewiston five or six years.

When I was twelve we moved to Richmond to the Standige place (where in later years Aunt Marth lived).

Kate and Ellen were identical in looks and the teachers could never tell them apart, so the teacher would tie a pink ribbon on Kate, and blue ribbon on Ellen. Occassionally one or the other wouldn't know her lesson, so they would go out at recess and exchange ribbons and then recite perfectly. This must have been very confusing to the teacher.

I attended the district school until I was seventeen. Then a Miss Ida Cook came up from the B.Y.C. at Logan and had a private school. The truplets attended for one year.
I had my first beau when I was fifteen. He was Alozo Merrill.

"Mira's three" were always in mischief and the townspeople, when hearing a racket on the street would say, "Well, Iguess Mira's three are out again."

I was eighteen when I married Alma Merrill, on July 30, 1886, in the L.D.S. Temple at Logan, Utah. This was a polygamous marriage for sixteen months before Alma had married my older sister Esmerilda. Esmerilda believed the practice of polygamy to be true and gave her full consent for her husband to take her sister as his second wife. She took her baby (Lowell) and went with them to the Temple for the ceremony. She had eleven children and died with the eleventh, leaving eight children.

I lived in polygamy and was on the "underground" for ten years. At this time there was much persecution of the Mormons for practicing polygamy, and being on the "underground" meant that the wives of the polygamists had to keep on the move to keep from being arrested by the U.S. Marshalls and their deputies. My first born, Carrie Rebecca was born a year after I was married. When she was only two weeks old, I had to drive thirty five miles to keep from being arrested. Erma, my next child was born and died on the underground, and was buried at twelve o'clock at night. Her father never saw her.

My husband, Alma, was working on the railroad at this time, so I went out to Washington to be with him. I stayed there until just before my third child, Adrian, was born. I went back to Richmond, where he was born at the old mill.

There was a deputy scare when Adrian was two months old and I fled to Franklin, Idaho. There he had spinal menigitis and was ill for weeks. Through faith and prayers he was healed and had no ill effects. I promissed the Lord at that time if he would spare him, I would do my best to prepare him and send him on a mission. The Lord heard my prayer and answered it and I kept my word.

We lived at a north Richmond ranch for seven years. Ruel was born there, it was two and a half miles from Richmond. When he was six months old I had to go underground again. LaRue and Phebe were also born at that place. Then we moved back to Richmond and lived at theplace where George Hendricks lived in later life. This was just one block west of the home of Esmerilda. We lived there seven years, and Fern, Marriner and Ruth were born there. Ruth took pneumonia and spinal menigitis and died. She was a beautiful little child.

Matthias was the next child born. When he was nineteen months old, my sister, Esmerilda, who was the first wife of my hisband, died in child birth and her baby was born dead. She left a baby Denzil, eighteen months old, and seven other children. We affectionately call her "Rilda".

I then moved up to Rilda's place and took over the rearing of her children, eight of them, from tighteen months old to twenty-onw years, along with my own eight children. Two months after Rilda's death I gave birth to a little firl and I names her Rilda, in memory of my dead sister. I now had seventeen children to care for, since none had gotten married at this time.

My husband, Alma was president of the Benson Stake and was away a lot of the time. I had a lot of general and Stake authorities to feed and entertain.

Vermont was my next child and when she was two years old, Naomi was born. Naomi lived fourteen months and died with measles. She weighted 13-1/2 pounds when she was born. Two little boys were born and died at birth making me fifteen children that I had given birth to.

Wesley and Denzil, two of Rilda's children died in youth. Wesley was twenty-two and Denzil was nineteen.

After I took Rilda's children, I raised them all as if they were my own, and never made any distinction between them. They called me Aunt Beccy or Aunt Rebecca, and were always very good to me, and treated me like their mother.

Carrie was the first child married. One year we had four children get married.

About 1925, Alma and I went to Ithaca, N.Y. to witness the graduation exercises of our daughter Annie's husband, Orval, who was getting a Ph.D. Degree from Cornell University. Later we all went to New York City for a week, then to Philidelphia to the World's Fair, then to Washington, D.C. and stayed with Adrian and Thelma and family, for a week or ten days. We took the old Mormon Trail home and visited the Joseph Smith home, Carthage Jail, and many other early church landmarks. Orval's mother travelled with us on our way home.

Ruby, Esmerilda's daughters, died in April, 1933, in Portland, Oregon, and was brought back to Richmond for burial. She left seven children.

On January 17, 1936, my husband, Alma Merrill died from diabetes and heart trouble, and all of the children who were alive (fifteen of them) were at the funeral held in the Richmond Tabernacle. There were seven boys and eight girls.

We sent three boys on missions - Adrian and Nathan to California and Marriner to Germany.

There are four lawyers in the family - Lowell, Adrian, Ruel and LaRue.

There are two school teachers - Marriner and Matthias.

There are eight of the children who have college degrees, some two or three.

One of the boys followed the farming vocation of his father - Nathan.

The girls are all good housekeepers and mothers.

Now that my husband is gone, I am all alone and only two of our large family still live in Richmond - Nathan and Venna. I have visited around with the children all over the country and am now (1937) living alone in our large home at Richmond. Alma and I would have been farried fifty years had he lived until July, 1936. He died in January of the year."

----------------------

In closing this history the writer would like to state that at the close of her long and eventful life she had 41 grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren, 8 grandsons in the service of their country in World War II, and daughter with the American Red Cross stationed in Iceland and that six grandsons saw combat in foreign lands.

Her life was one of service to her family, to her neighbors and to her church. She spent 40 years as a Relief Society teacher. In later years she was an ardent temple worker and never missed an opportunity to go to Logan to the temple to do work for her kindred dead. She was a faithful member of the Daughters of the Pioneers, a faithful wife, mother and kind neighbor, befriended those in need, a staunch Latter-Day Saint.

She closed her mortal life in death on August 9, 1943, at the home she lived so well in Richmond, Utah, and was given a beautiful funeral service in the Richmond Tabernacle under the direction of the South Ward Bishopric, with Bp. E.M. Hicken presiding and conducting. Her remains were buried in the Richmond Cemetary beside that of her husband and her sister Rilda and among the children who had gone before.

Brigham Andrus Hendricks
      Brigham Andrus Hendricks was born on 27-Nov-1857 at Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Utah. He was the son of William Dorris Hendricks and Mary Jane Andrus. Brigham married Mary Rebecca Stoddard, daughter of Charles Henry Stoddard and Anna Telford, on 13-Jan-1881 at Endowment House, Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Utah; by Daniel H. Wells. Brigham Andrus Hendricks died on 16-Jul-1925 at Lewiston, Cache County, Utah, at age 67. Brigham was buried at Richmond City Cemetery, Richmond, Cache County, Utah.
     

At an early age he moved with his parents to Richmond, Cache Co., Ut, where the family home was established. There, with other young people, he participated in school activities and events of the day in a normal comity. However, schooling opportunities were limited, but being interested in various things-he acquired the habit of good reading. He thus informed himself on many subjects which proved to be of great value in his religious and community life.

On 13 Jan. 1881 at the age of twenty-four he was married to MARY REBECCA STODDARD, daughter of Charles Henry and Anna (Telford) Stoddard of Bountiful, Ut. She was born). May 1862. They too had moved to Richmond with the early pioneers. The marriage was performed by Daniel H. Wells in the Endowment House at Salt Lake City. Soon after his marriage he took his bride to Lewiston, Ut, where he established his own home in which he lived until his death. During his young manhood days he
worked with his father in railroading. He spent most of his time in construction work in the state of Montana. There he came in contact with unprincipled and undesirable men, and many times he was called upon to defend himself, his family, and church.

In the early days of its colonization, Lewiston was called "Poverty Flat" because people were poor, without money, and had to depend upon the elements for sustenance. They surely did "earn their bread by the sweat of their brow". The sell was sandy and needed much water for the crops. Many times aftet,the seed had been sown the winds would come and blow them all away and the land would have to be reseeded. However, as more people moved into the community and the land was tilled consistently, it became very-productive.

In a new town there are many projects to be undertaken such as digging canals'and irrigation ditchet, building school houses, and churchs, stores, milk factories, etc. Brig
or "B. A.", as he was called by his family and friends, with the Pond brothers, Hyer boys and others, was instrumental in promoting and completing these projects. Perhaps one of the most important of these was obtaining springs and piping pure drinking water into the community. For many years water for 'culinary purposes was hauled from Richmond or nearby places.

Primarily he was a farmer and dairyman, but found time to participate in civic and political activities. He served as trustee for the public' schools, was elected as Cache County Commissioner and Utah Legislator. Most of his time other than earning a livelihood was spent in religious and church service. He worked in the Priesthood Quorums and organizations of the LDS Church, holding such positions as Superintendent of Sunday School, Counselor in the Benson Stake Presidency, and President of South African Mission. He also. filled two other long term missions, one to the Southern States, the other to the Northwestern States.

He was stern but kind, hardworking, and honest in all his dealings, generous with time and means, and had the courage of his convictions. He was a fluent public speaker and was often called upon to preach funeral sermons.

Mary Jane Hendricks
      Mary Jane Hendricks was born on 19-Aug-1852 at Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Utah. She was the daughter of William Dorris Hendricks and Mary Jane Andrus. Mary married Antrim Byrd Harrison, son of Jesse Harrison and Phebe Tubbs, on 8-Feb-1870 at Endowment House, Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Utah. Mary Jane Hendricks died on 18-Jul-1931 at Richmond, Cache County, Utah, at age 78. Mary was buried on 21-Jul-1931 at Richmond City Cemetery, Richmond, Cache County, Utah.
     

MARY JANE HENDRICKS born 19 Aug. 1852, Salt Lake City, Ut., just five years after the first band of Mormon Pioneers reached their destination on the shores of Great Salt Lake. She was born in a home near the Old Tannery, a short distance northwest of the Temple Block. As a girl of seven, Mary Jane went with her parents to settle Richmond, Cache County, Ut., in the spring of 1860. She resided in the Old Fort at the North Cache outpost and lived through many trying experiences in the fight of the pioneers for survival against hostile Indians and the elements. Through it all she acquired a love for the Gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter- Day Saints and built within her a set of principles that in later years were to shape the lives of her own sons and daughters and their posterity for years to come. She became the sweetheart of ANTRIM BYRD HARRISON, a Huntington Mills, Pa. youth who had come west with freighters and went to work for Mary Jane's father, freighting between points in Montana and Corinne, Ut.
He was born 10 Apr. 1842 at Huntington Mills, Pa.
The winter of 1868 found the youthful Pensylvanian working in Richmond, where he met 16 year old Mary Jane, daughter of his boss. They became attached to each other, and in turn, the young man was attracted to the LDS church. He eventually joined the LDS church and claimed Mary Jane for his bride in the Endowment House in Salt Lake City, 8 Feb. 1870, They purchased a log cabin two blocks south of the old Co-op Store and there, on 10 Nov. 1870, their first child was born. In 1874 the Harrison's moved to Lewiston. There they homesteaded a quarter section of ground a mile south and a mile west of the Lewiston State Bank, continuing the pioneer trials of early Cache history. Mr. Harrison was the first clerk of the first store in Lewiston, originally owned by William D. Hendricks and later called the Lewiston Co-op. In 1870 the Harrisons disposed of the Lewiston property and returned to Richmond, eventually acquiring the old James Hendricks brick home, kitty-corner from the Richmond Tabernacle, where Mary Jane resided until her death at the age of 78, on 18 July, 1931. Mary Jane was an active worker in the LDS church. She was appointed President of the Richmond YMCA, a position she held thirteen years. She taught in the Richmond Sunday School and served in the Benson Stake Relief Society Presidency under Rebecca L. Rawlins as President.
Mr. Harrison died 1 Sept. 1893 in Richmond, Ut. where he was buried. He left Mary Jane with seven children, yet she went on to serve her church willingly and with marked effect. To sustain her family she sold charts throughout Cache Valley, gave lessons in sewing and performed odd jobs. Eventually she started a millinery store in her home in Richmond, a business she maintained until incapacitated by the illness which took her life. She was a woman of indomitable courage. She was industrious and often worked far beyond her strength. She had a sublime faith in God, which enabled her to rear her family and serve her fellow men throughout her life, even though 38 years were spent as a widow.

Juel worked at his father's sawmill on Warm River and was appointed Postmaster 25 Mar. 1901. They built a larger home and moved in just before Alma Kay was born 18 Nov. 1901. Then Juel was called on a mission to go the Northwestern States. He turned the Post Office over to his wife and she was appointed Postmistress. When Juel returned from his mission he contracted building the Yellowstone Canal at Green Timber. They gave up the Post Office - Mary then went with him and cooked for the men. In 1907 Juel had several teams and contracted freighting in Twin Falls, Jerome, Eden, Hazelton, Gooding, and Hagerman, Ida. About 1909 Lucinda Bess Hendricks and her sons, Asa with his family, and Hyrum, moved to LaGrande, Ore. There Juel hauled timber and lumber and also did some excavating. Then his other brother, John, joined him. Juel was Street Supt. for 3 1/2 years in LaGrande.

      John Henry Hendricks was born on 29-Sep-1873 at Richmond, Cache County, Utah. He was the son of Joseph Smith Hendricks and Lucinda Bess.

John Henry Hendricks died on 16-May-1949 at Rexburg, Madison County, Idaho, at age 75. John was buried on 20-May-1949 at Pineview Cemetery, Ashton, Fremont County, Idaho.
     

He came to Idaho when a boy of sixteen, and met CLARA WAHLEN at Nelsons Dairy where she was working. Clara's parents were very poor - her father obtained work in a sawmill in Paradise, Ut. Then they moved to Logan, Ut. where he worked in a tailor shop and in the Temple. When Clara was about 8 years old they went to Rexburg, Ida. with the early pioneers. There she grew up, working at odd jobs and going to school at Ricks Academy. Her parents were still paying for their fare over the ocean. So they all worked and saved to help. The mother made yeast for the town, did washings and sewing, Clara and her sister helping.

John and Clara were married at Marysville, Ida., 1 Apr. 1895 by Thomas E. Gooch - the first couple married at Marysville. In October of 1895 they were married in the Logan Temple. They came back to Marysville where they made their home except for a period of nine years when they moved to Mt. Glen Ore.

There were only about nine or ten families living in Marysville when they went there. John and his brothers worked at the sawmill at Warm River and hauled lumber to St. Anthony for about 15 years. He helped build the Marysville canal. Clara took the children and moved up in the timber with him. He homesteaded the Big Falls near Bear Gulch, which he later sold and was a stage coach driver in the Yellowstone Park for eleven summers. He liked music and dancing. He obtained a violin and practiced in the barn until his screeching became the lovely music everyone enjoyed. He also played the drums and piano. Clara was very active in Church organizations, Primary, Relief Society, and Genealogical work. She was a good neighbor, was always the first to be there when help was needed. She attended over one hundred births, acting as nurse or midwife many times without the help of a doctor.

      Lurinda Alice Hendricks was born on 19-Jul-1875 at Richmond, Cache County, Utah. She was the daughter of Joseph Smith Hendricks and Lucinda Bess. Lurinda married Horton Brinkerhoff Leavitt, son of George Leavitt and Janette Brinkerhoff, on 15-Nov-1899. Lurinda Alice Hendricks died on 19-Sep-1958 at Idaho Falls, Bonneville County, Idaho, at age 83. Lurinda was buried on 23-Sep-1958 at Pineview Cemetery, Ashton, Fremont County, Idaho.
     

She attended public schools in Lewiston, and later attended school at Logan Ut., and Ricks Academy at Rexburg, Ida. Sunday School and Primary were also a very important part of her childhood.

On 22 December 1891 she moved with her parents to Marysville, Ida. During the long winter months she, with other young people, created entertainment with drama.
Her work was in the kitchen helping prepare meals for the hearty appetites of her men folks. Life was not all work, for she and her best pal, Lucy Harris, had many laughable experiences. Occasionally, she even tried her hand at fishing, often with surprising luck. After living in Lewiston they moved to Marysville, Ida., where they engaged in farming.

Horton Leavitt was called to serve a 26 month mission for the Church. He left Lurinda with a 16 month old daughter, Cleah, and a few months later their second daughter was born. Lurinda bravely carried on alone. In 1914 Druzilla became ill and died. One week after the burial of her little girl, a son was born, who was never able to walk. It took courage, faith, and prayer to carry on but Lurinda faced her work with a humble heart and a prayer for strength.

In 1920 her husband's health became poor and the family moved to Rigby, Ida., and later to Idaho Falls, Ida. Lurinda's mother (Lucinda Bess) lived with her the last 8 years of her life. Many beautiful poems were written by Lurinda and also many tributes to friends. Through all her years she instilled in the hearts of her children a testimony of the Gospel as she lived her religion and worked in the various organizations.

His father helped build the Oregon Short Line Railroad. The greatest event in his young life was to go visit his father at one of his camps.
He started to school in Lewiston, Ut., but in 1892 his mother moved to Marysville, Ida. where she homesteaded 160 acres of land. He remembers when they made the first shingles, as all the houses had dirt roofs, and what a thrill to have a shingled house. His first wife was MARTHA ELEANOR WILSON. In March 1908, because of ill health, Martha Eleanor's father moved with his family and 8 or 9 other families from Marysville, to LaGrande, Ore. Asa and his family went also. They worked in the lumber business. He moved to Portland and found work in the Plainer Mills. Their mother, against a lot of wishes, brought her organ with her to Marysville and they all learned to play. Joseph Smith Hendricks gave the gift of music to his family. John and Asa were in the Marysville Band. Asa's last carpentering job was making and trimming caskets. His gifts and arts were many.
