I was born in the pioneer town of Snowflake Ariz, I was born April 26 / 1911 in Grandpa Smith's home. picture of home
Here - parents occupation
(over) Teacher, Snowflake Stake Academy
When I was 2 1/2 years old I went with my parents and older bro. to Davenport where Dad studied chiropractic.
Returned to Provo.
Chicago mother studied
About 19-- we moved to Alta., Can where my Father taught in the Raymond Academy for a yr. We lived a short while in Magrath & Cardston & then came to Lethbridge where Dad & Mother opened an office picture in part of a large home
whe there. It was a pioneering step for them but with faith & works combined their business soon grew & they became well known for the ir fine results their patients rec'd.
started entered Kindergarten at 5 yrs. & up to grade 5 attended Central School. I remember as a child the fun we had building snow men & snow forts - playing house on our wide veranda & on long summer days exploring with my brothers other sections of town.
P Having now 3 2 bro and no sisters I used to entertain myself with my many dolls Oliver I & doll & had a special hobby of wearing out 2 or 3 ruffly parasols in a summer. attic cooked tree needles When I was about 8
or 9 Marvin, 10, and I spent a few weeks on Wm Stuarts farm riding horses in the summer & Marvin had a small pinto pony to ride which was the delight of the neighborhood.
we had a swing in our large back yard where we flew kites, played pirates & made graves for dead birds & kittens. boys on a horse, fish & Oliver
During the flu epidemic 19?18 I remember wearing mask for protection but none of our family was included on the sick list. Any Mary Watson ( __ __ __) was staying with us & Mother was in US on a church trip when the Contagion broke out.
In grade 2 or 3 I remember being taught to knit sox for our soldiers but didn't realize what the war meant even after the big Armistice parade &
fictitious burning of the Kaiser to a stake.
When about 9 yrs old took an interest in drawing faces & heads which
later gradually became a hindrance to my interest in some subjects but later was to be a rewarding hobby or a vocation.
