89 A Short Life Story -- By Lloyd Jean Morrison

On the sixth day of October 1902 I was born in an apartment in the Windsor Hotel, in Anadarko, Caddo County, Oklahoma, (which was Indian territory at that time), to my good parents Bertha Winifred and Lewis James Morrison. Named Lloyd Jean by them, I was the third child and had been preceded by two sisters, Mona Emily and Lois Bertha who were born six and three years respectively prior to my arrival.

My parents were married the first day of September, 1895 in Cherokee, Crawford County, Kansas. Both parents were teachers and had taught in the coal mining camps of the area in southwest Missouri and southeast Kansas, often in the same two-room school.

Shortly after the Cherokee strip of the Indian territory was opened for settlement by white settlers, the balance of the Indian lands was also opened for settlement and my father went to El Reno, then to the settlement of Anadarko.

Beginning as a rag town of tents and frame shacks, about 1900, the settlement increased quite rapidly and so upon my arrival was a village of more permanent frame and metal buildings. I have been informed that my advent was anything but spectacular and that I was rather sickly for several months.

About 1906 mother urged Father to sell the cafe and hotel and move to a 160 acre farm some few miles from town, as she felt the hotel was poor environment in which to raise youngsters.

Father was quite easily discouraged by events on the farm and having obtained some literature on a golden bonanza to be had for the asking in south-central Idaho, he left the farm in the fall of 1908 to investigate. Mother, the girls and I, left also in the early spring of 1909. We traveled by train through the Royal Gorge to Salt Lake City, Utah where we had an opportunity to tour the town. This was my first contact with the 'Mormons'. I regret to say that I have no recollection of the Tabernacle and Temple, but I do recall the old Salt Palace on Ninth South between Main and State.

On we went to Idaho where father was then foreman of an Italian labor crew building the new Carey Act irrigation project, later to be known as the King Hill Irrigation Project. Father had filed on 40 acres of rocky hillside sage brush land, some three miles south of the railroad siding called King Hill. This was to be our home for years and my parents' home until their death in 1936 for Mother and 1937 for Father.

But first, we were to return to Anadarko in the fall of 1909 to dispose of our farm and stock. This took until spring 1910. While in Anadarko, we youngsters were put in school. This was my first real year of school, although Mother started me to school the previous year, she withdrew me when I became sick. Although the girls said it was because I didn't behave. In the spring of 1910 we again returned to Idaho to begin building our home in the west. We first built one room of old railroad ties until we could get the first room of our three room frame home ready to live in, which took the next couple of years.

My schooling began in earnest in 1911 in a frame building at King Hill, later continued in a brick school building, which upon my graduation in 1917, was still uncompleted.

Those were years of scant income for us and, although we always had plenty to eat, we had only a minimum of clothes, with only one pair of shoes each year. Father drove the school wagon and was also part time janitor of the school. I also had a job as janitor of the non-denominational church in King Hill, a one-room frame building. Many a Sunday I had to eat and ride like mad on my old horse, so that I could sweep and put the song books around before the folks began sitting down.

Besides my farm duties and chores I had another job peddling papers over a 20 mile route, which I rode for several hot summers and colder winters. I sold the Saturday Evening Post, The Ladies Home Journal and a 'Blood & Thunder' newspaper called 'The Saturday Blade and Chicago Ledger.'

During these years it fell to my eldest sister, Mona and me to peddle vegetables and melons during the summer, in the railroad town of Glenns Ferry, some six miles west of our ranch. Although those were long, hard days I have many fond recollections of our life and loves on our ranch. We subscribed to a magazine called the 'Youth's Companion' and how I looked forward to its arrival for mother would read the thrilling stories from it to us along with our nightly Bible readings. I enjoyed the pictures and stories of the Bible almost as much. My parents belonged to the Christian Church and on an early spring day in 1912 or 1914 my sisters were baptized. The only reason I was not baptized at the same time was because I suddenly decided the water was too cold.

In August of 1917, I began work on a survey crew on reconstruction of the King Hill Irrigation Project. In October I quit and went to Nampa Idaho to attend high school. In July 1918 I began work for the Bureau of Reclamation at Minidoka, Idaho on what is now being built as the north side of Minidoka pumping project, reclaiming the several acres of land north of Rupert and Paul. I continued working until the fall of 1919 when I quit to go to the school at Gooding College, a small Methodist school, at Gooding, Idaho.

In June 1920, I began working for the Idaho Bureau of Highways, at Glenns Ferry, on Highway construction. That was almost the beginning of highway construction, in the west. In 1921, while working on highway projects out of Pocatello, Idaho in Bannock County, I was assigned to work at Downey, Idaho. Although I had had some contact with the Mormon people while working at Minidoka and Paul, Idaho it was not until my work took me to Downey that I really became interested in the Church and I suspect at that time I was more interested in the people, for it was there that I met the very wonderful little girl that was to become my more wonderful wife.

Thora May Larson and I were in the Bannock County Court House at Pocatello, Idaho on the first day of September, 1922. That was surely the beginning of a rugged life for a young girl, untrained in that way of life and who had never before been very many miles away from her Mother and home. A surveyor of necessity lives a frontier type of life in construction and survey camps where ever his work may lead him.

In 1923 shortly after the birth of our first son, Jean Lloyd, on June 19, I began work for the Oregon Short Line Railroad Company at Hammett, Idaho. During my six years with the rail road our next three young ones were born. Thora June, June 20 1926, Richard Lewis, August 3 (8th) 1927, Rita May, Nov 1928. Rita was the only one who had the distinction of being born in a railroad outfit car in my old home town, King Hill. We now had what we thought was our family, two boys and two girls.

June 1929, the beginning of the depression years brought an end to my work with the railroad and we moved our family to Salt Lake City in June, where I began work with the Utah Power Company. I was at home little that year as my work took me to all parts of the State of Utah, southeast Idaho, southwest Wyoming and southwestern Colorado. That was the beginning of my wife's experience in raising a family alone. Her trials had begun in earnest. In 1930, while still with the power company an opportunity came for me to take a job in old Mexico and in March I left for Mexico City, DF. While there I was on transmission, high voltage line surveys in the States of San Luis Potosi, Leon and Guanajuato. In February 1931, the depression had again made itself felt and I returned to Salt Lake City, and my family, what a wonderful experience, not only returning to my family but to these wonderful United States.

Shortly after returning home I began work with the Utah State Road commission, working in various areas of the state. One of the projects was construction of the section of highway in Price Canyon, from Helper, through the tunnel at Castle Gate, to the town then called Rolapp, now known as Royal.

In April 1933, my work with the Bureau of Public Roads began. My first assignment was to complete the construction of eight miles of highway east from Cove Fort, Utah. I completed a six months appointment on the construction and again returned to the State Roads, working at Orderville, Utah. While on that project and living at Glendale, Kane County, or youngest daughter, Lois Ann, was born.

In 1934, I again returned to work for the Bureau of Roads working seasonally until 1936 on Park projects in southern Utah. In January of 1936 we moved our family to Ogden, Utah and in 1939 our last child, a son, Roy Dean was born in the Dee Hospital at Ogden, the only one of our children to have that honor.

In 1942, at the beginning of World War II I was assigned to work in northern British Columbia on the Alaska Highway, where I spent the next two years with the exception of three months during the winter. In March of 1943 I was again back in the bush country of Canada, returning home upon completion of the 250 mile highway in December 1943.

My work with the Bureau of Public Roads has been in Idaho and Utah and since 1946 has been solely in Utah, with headquarters at Ogden. Although I had a great deal of interest in the LDS church, reading and studying thru the years my work and way of life had not been particularly conducive to actively joining a church.

All three of our daughters followed their Mother and joined the LDS church at a fairly young age and when the youngest boy became old enough he too was baptized.

I had not yet become converted to all the precepts and philosophies of the Latter Day Saints, nor had I yet overcome all of my nuisance vices, principally swearing, which I had demined that I must do before I could in full honesty say that I was ready to live up to all the ordinances of the Church of Jesus Christ. In the fall of 1955, the home Missionaries of Ogden First Ward, Weber Stake, began giving us lessons and on the 16th day of March 1956, my youngest son, holding the office of Priest, baptized me. What a marvelous experience, for each of us, I believe. Since that day I have diligently tried to follow and to serve our Lord. On the 25th day of January, 1957 my wife and I were married again, in the Beautiful Salt Lake Temple, for time and all eternity. We had had the wonderful experience of accompanying our youngest daughter in her marriage on the same day and having our two youngest sealed to us. Since that time we have had the wonderful privilege of returning to the Salt Lake Temple several times and also to the Logan and Manti Temples to continue the work of our father in heaven.

We humbly pray that our testimony of the Gospel may be strengthened with each passing day and that we may dedicate the balance of our short earthly span to the fulfillment of any mission that our savior may have in store for us, in the Name of our Redeemer, Jesus Christ, AMEN.
