Memories from their Granddaughter Leora C. Allen. Who is a daughter of Josie Juanita and Collins Rowe Charlesworth:
Grandma and Grandpa
Grandma and Grandpa lived in Kanosh and was married when young. Sarah was about 14 years old in my recollection. They had 8 children 4 of each. Abinadi was a small Welch man around 5ft tall and average build. Sarah was around 5ft 5, a few inches taller than grandpa and larger built. They lived in a 4 room stucco home, with an average yard. Grandpa had a shop in his yard he made things for the farmers with his advil and billows. Granpa was an onery man he had quite a temper. They were both LDS. Grandma was a wonderful homemaker. She had a sweet disposition.
One day Grandma, poured Grandpa a cup of coffee. He said it was cold so he threw it on the floor, breaking the cup. Grandma went in the bedroom and packed her suitcase. Grandpa thought she was in there sulking. She walked up to Uncle Leonard's and had him take her to her sisters in Fillmore. Where she stayed a few days. Grandpa in the meantime cleaned up the coffee and broken cup.
Don Abraham a grandson was staying there at the time and witnessed this and told the story to Leora.
After Grandpa died Grandma moved to Kentucky with Mildred and Armond. Armond was in the service and was stationed there.
Memories from Leora
Uncle Leonard worked with Papa a lot. They would haul wood together, for winter burning. Uncle Leonard and Aunt Florance, Uncle Frank and Aunt Alice Christensen, Charles and Freda Chistensen and Papa and Moma, would get together about once a week to someones home and play donkey a card game. We kids were sent to bed early when the party was at our house. Moma always served homemade ice cream and cake. They would grab one or more spoons, and even crawl on the floor to get one if they or anyone had four cards alike. The one who didn't get a spoon had a letter against their name that finally spelled DONKEY. At the end of the game the one who had all the letters DONKEY had to bray. So, it got pretty ruff, Moma had skinned up hands after each evening, because they could grab the spoon out of each others hands.
Uncle Leonard, Aunt Florance and my Folks, went on several lovely trips together, including some fishing trips.
Uncle Leonard served as one of the town Councilmen for several years.
Memories from her daughter Leora

Some of the things I remember about Moma were: Her honesy, she was hard working, a good manager, her temper, religious, she was a good companion, and her by-words "tut-tut." She was also neat and tidy.
Papa liked jokes but Moma was more serious.
When the Folks were on their missions, she said she had to distroy my letters immediatly after reading them, because they were so honest, and I told everything.
My Folks were the ward dance directors, and although they worked hard during the day they were ready to attend the dances on Friday nights. They were a handsome couple on the dance floor. One night she danced so hard, Papa sang this to her:
"Right foot, left foot;
Any foot at all;
Neda lost her petticoat;
Dancing in the hall"
It had been said that her petticoat came off and she scooted it across the floor and kept on dancing.
She was a wonderful seamstress too, she made all of her five daughter's clothes and remodeled them for the next one in line.
Memories from Leora
Uncle Myron drove a street car in Los Angeles for years. The day he had a heart attack he stopped so his passengers were safe.
We all liked to see Uncle Myron come to Utah, because he had a big, long purse and gave us some money from it.
I stayed out of school in 1940 and had my foot opperated on. That winter the Folks and I took a trip to Los Angeles where we stayed with Uncle Myron and Aunt Elva. Their son (Don), had an accordian and he let me practice on it. I'm sure I drove them all nuts because I didn't want to eat I just wanted to play that instrument. When Papa saw how interested I was, Uncle Leonard sold Papa their small accordian. Then Papa bought a larger one in Provo. We sisters learned to play. Iris formed a band later.
We (Lloyd and Leora), went to their home in Los Angeles and stayed a couple of days. We went on a Giant Racer in Los Angeles. It went way out over the ocean, Aunt Elva wouldn't go with us on the ride. Lloyd and I got in the front car, Uncle Myron got in the car behind us. He held on so tight that the knuckles on his fingers went white, and he hallered every few minutes "OOH Ahh, OOH AAH." They said that it was the fastest racer in the world. This happened when Lloyd and I were first married in 1942.
Uncle Myron was short and fat and good looking and wouldn't let us pay for anything.
Memories from Leora
Some words to discribe her would be: hard working, good, great cook, and religious.
Aunt Manilla would insist on us eating if we were ever at her house during a meal, she was a great cook, and lived in Fillmore.
When she moved from Fillmore she went up north and lived in a trailer. She made beautiful beaded curtains for the bathroom, and she made her own bedstead. She was quite a carpenter. Her yard was beautiful with flowers and she had a beautiful lawn.
She worked up north with children with disabilities. One big boy wet his diaper, took it off and threw it at her knocking her wig off, it rolled down the hall. She wanted to slap him side-ways but the workers weren't allowed to disapline the patients.
Memories from Leora
Uncle Sanford was fun at a get-together, because he was full of jokes, and a good sport. He had two wives, Aunt Leah died and then he married Aunt Harriet, who came with him every year to the Abraham Reunion. They lived in California. She was a good sport also. Since he passed away Aunt Harriet corresponds with us and visits us occasionally.
One night in our camp trailer, he jumped up quick from the table and tipped over the gas lanturn which threw sparks all over my clothes causing deep burns on my legs. He was so appologetic that it was funny. We've laughed since.
He had a nice singing voice, and would join in with a crowd when singing. All Abrahams are nice singers.

Memories from Leora
Aunt Mona married Uncle Ed Robison. Uncle Ed was a gifted painter. He drew beautiful pictures.
She hired me to tend Dan and Eva Dean when I was just a little girl. When she went someplace with Uncle Ed for two nights, but she stayed a week. She told me to charge $0.25 worth of loose rice at Cutlers Store, which I did. But I didn't know that rice swelled up when cooked. So I cooked the whole thing and I filled all her kettels, so I jumped on my bike and went down to ask Moma what to do, she sent three Triplicates with me to hold the rice. When I could see what I done I fed it to Dan and Eva Dean 3 meals a day. Even in late years Dan reminded me that he hated rice.
Aunt Mona said when she came home she would pay me in make-up she was selling, but she never did.
She had borrowed some sheet music from me years before. When I moved her piano to clean, there was my music chewed into bits by mice, to make nests for newly born mice. Some of the music was "It's A Sin To Tell A Lie," "Always," and White Christmas." Which I had bought from the money I had earned from tending LaRue Crowley's boys on dance nights.
Aunt Mona had a beautiful singing voice. At one of our reunions she stood on a mound at Adalade park and looked like an angel. She sang "Utah Trail" and several other familiar songs that day and her voice just echoed all over the park. We kept suggesting different songs, she sang for over an hour, and passed this talent on to her children.
Memories from Leora
Aunt Mildred married Uncle Evan Day and had one daughter Barbara Gail. They divorced, then she later married Uncle Ormond Gardner. He was in the service in Kentucky. After Grandpa's death, Aunt Mildred had Grandma come to stay for a while in Kentucky where they lived.
One night when Don Abraham was visiting in Kanosh he, Aunt Mildred, Varua Rappleye, and I stole some chickens from Brig Kimball. He had a house that was a block west of his home where he had some chickens. Don was the driver while we 3 went in that house and took as many chickens as we could carry in our arms. Aunt Mildred was wearing a housecoat and house shoes and couldn't run as fast, but made it to the car with 4 chickens. Varua and I lost some on the way but still had our arms full of chickens. We went to Grandma Abraham's, cleaned and cooked them. We got our fill of chicken.
Another night we stole 3 chickens under an old tub. Took them to the canyon, cleaned and cooked them. When I was working at Mrs. Cutlers the next day Will Watts came in and said someone had stole his 3 sick chickens, this made me want to throw up.
When I told Papa about stealing chickens he said, "My land Leora you could have had all you wanted here in our coop." Then I said, "It was funner to steal them!" Then Papa said, "You're a smart-aleck!"
Memories from Leora
Uncle Clawson's nickname was "Banty-legs."
One night when they had been drinking, Franklin and friends opened Clawson's bedroom window and shoved him inside, then left.
Uncle Clawson took Margaret Penny for a ride, and tipped over down the crooked lane. I asked him where he had his hand and he just giggled.
One night Uncle Clawson and I went to the Wickiups above Kanosh. We joined in their dance, as someone had died and they were going to dance and chant all night. They got in a circle and just pivoted around. Also they were roasting pine-nuts in a bon-fire in the center of the circle. They sold us some pine-nuts when they got cooked. The women were bare foot. It was interesting and fun.
Uncle Clawson visited us while we lived at the Jew farm. While driving the cows to a field, he found a snake and killed it then whipped it around my sisters and my legs while walking down the dusty road. I didn't like snakes.
Uncle Clawson and Frank Penny hooked up a machine in Aunt Ann Penny's outside toilet. When she went out to use the toilet it was a dark night. And when she sat down one of them must have said this over the microphone "Move over Annie I'm using this hole!" Which sounded like James Cortsen's voice and he was already dead. She ran out of the door with bloomers hanging.
