Charles Franklin Broadbent was born in Wellsville, Cache County, Utah on October 13, 1869 in a one-room log house with a dirt roof. He was the fifth child in a family of nine, born to Francis Broadbent and Sarah Frances Steers Broadbent. The first two children died in infancy. Sarah Frances (Fanny) being the next, who married Andrew Morgan Spence, Elijah married Leah Curtis, next came Charles Franklin who married Emeline Painter, Levi Delmar married Lettuce Ann Haslam, Hyram married Lorena Smith, Eliza Charlotte married Samuel Haslam, Maud Elizabeth married Moroni Allen. When Charles was four years old his father took a herd of sheep to herd up in the hills or mountains west of Wellsville. When he was five, he was sitting with his father watching the sheep when all of a sudden his father grabbed him and threw him down the hill which sprained his ankle. A rattle snake was crawling through the sage brush right behind him. The snake was shot and they counted sixteen rattles on it. The fall he was nine, he took care of the sheep camp and cooked for his father and Joseph Shaw. He spent twelve years on the sheep camp. He received very little schooling. He worked one summer on the railroad. He worked two summers in Salt Lake City hauling gravel and rock. He hauled the first load of rock for the basement of the Hotel Utah. He first met Emeline Painter to know her in July 1889. She was with other girls hunting four leaf clovers along the sidewalk. He fell in love at first sight, they started keeping company right away although she was going with another boy at this time. They went together four years, were married May 3, 1893 in the Logan Temple by George Teasdale. It rained all day, Levi drove them to Logan in a Democrat. They left Wellsville May 23, 1893 for Canada to make their new home. Their company consisted of his father, mother, two sisters (Eliza and Maud), two brothers (Levi and Hyram), and Charles and Emeline Painter. His father drove one wagon, his mother a democrat. He drove four horses pulling two wagons (in tandem) The lead wagon was loaded with flour, their bed springs were on top which served as their bedroom at night. The trailing wagon carried their furniture, which was very meager. Levi drove a wagon, Hyram drove the cattle. They were three days on the road. They did not travel on Sundays. Their caravan met in front of Francis Broadbent’s home on the north street in Wellsville, just east of where the Good Morning Milk factory now stands. (August 1958). They spent the first night at Bear River and spent some time square dancing to lift their spirits. There was much weeping the next morning as they said goodbyes to loved ones being left behind. They started with Leishmans and High Woodward. Then they decided there were too many in the company, so they left when they reached Camas Creek, below Beaver Canyon. They arrived in Cardston five days ahead of the others, on the fifth of July, 1893. They stayed in Cardston five days while they located land. Charles, Levi, Hyram and their father located on section 32, Township 2, Range 26. They pitched their tents about two blocks east of where the Leavitt Church house now stands (1961). They stayed there until they found the corners of their section, then moved up to the spring on the south west corner of the section. There they built a two-room log house for their father and mother. (This place was known as Buffalo Flats at the time, but was later given the name of Leavitt.) Charles and Emeline moved back to Cardston for the winter. Here their first child was born on February 23, 1894 (Charles Franklin Jr.) They moved back to Buffalo Flats in the spring and started to set out logs for a one-room house. They hauled their lumber from McLeod. In the spring of 1898 they added another room. In this house nine more children were born. In 1911 they built a larger bungalow, which the family were very happy and proud to move into. In this house, two more children were born, making a total of 12 children. On September 23, 1898, Charles was ordained a seventy by Apostle Owen Woodruff. He received his Patriarchial Blessing under the hands of Henry L. Hinman. He left for a mission to Manitoba October 7, 1898. The mission was closed, he came home November 10, 1899. It was not easy for his wife at this time with four small children, a farm to take care of, and the responsibility of keeping him on a mission. With the blessings of the Lord, good neighbors and his brother Hyram’s help, all came out fine. Before he left for his mission, he was in Heber S. Allen’s store. Brother Allen asked if he had a watch and overcoat. When told that he did not, Brother Allen gave them to him. When he came back, they were all paid for. His brother Hyram lived with the family for many years and they worked their farms together. Hyram was called on a mission to Samoa. He was gone three years. When he came home they worked together until the first World War. Hyram joined the army. The oldest son (Charles) also joined. He was at the front lines for two years. And was killed in action September 28, 1918, just one month before the armistice was signed. His Temple work was done by his father, August 1925. The first child to be married was Ella in 1915 and they gradually all left until they were left alone. In August 1925 they moved to Cardston to put some of the younger girls through high school. They stayed two years then moved back to the farm. After the last child was married (in November 18, 1935) they stayed on the farm two more years, then sold it to their son (William) and moved into Cardston in 1937. During his life at Leavitt, he worked as school trustee, superintendent of the Sunday School, taught in the Sunday School. He looked after the missionary fund and for many years part of his farm was used to raise grain for the funds. He was a temple worker for many years and also did many endowments for the dead. He had some research work done. On March 5, 1952, his wife passed away. His daughter, Elizabeth and husband lived with him for a few months. He went to Utah with them that fall. They moved to their own home that fall. Father lived alone for some time, then lived with his daughter (Ella and husband ) for a short time. He then moved back to Cardston and rented two rooms in the Tolley house. He and his sister Eliza moved back into his home for awhile. He made one more trip to Utah with his daughter, Sarah, and husband. He was quite ill while in Utah and came back and went to Calgary for an operation. While on his trip south he met a lot of relatives and friends which he enjoyed visiting again. He finally moved to his daughter-in-law’s home where she took care of elderly people. He was taken to the hospital on the second of January, 1958 and passed away the 2nd of February, 1958. He was buried in Leavitt cemetery beside his wife.

Hyrum Broadbent WWI Story

Přispěvatel: dgmurray Vytvořeno: 1 year před Aktualizováno: 1 year před

Transcribed from Hyrum Broadbent’s recorded testimony: About this time [1918] I was assigned to an advanced transport section. Our job was to keep ammunitions up to the front lines for the machine guns. Three of us pulled our limbers up behind a railroad embankment (quite a high one), as close as we could get them. We were there waiting for a runner to tell us where we were wanted; then we would have to take them into the front line. That night the shells were coming over our heads in constant streams. Large shells not small ones. They were exploding about a hundred yards behind us. The horses that we had were so nervous that they stood there and sweat all night although it was quite a cold night. They stood there and we could hear the sweat dropping off of them in the middle of the night whenever the guns where silent for a few seconds. That night my father came to me. He had been dead for a year and half. He came to me and told me he had come for Charlie. Charlie was my brother’s son. A very fine boy; clean and pure and sweet. I loved him almost as I love my own children. He was a wonderful boy. I pled with father not to take him. I said “we need him here, we need him to set an example before us, before the rest of the people.” And I kept pleading with him not to take him. He finally got a little out of patience with me and said, “you can go in his place if you want to,” but before I could make reply, a voice spoke to me, not father’s voice; someone else’s. A voice spoke to me and said, “Who are you that you should mar the plan?” That was the first I realized it was wrong for me to plead for Charlie’s life. He had filled his mission, it was His plan that he should go on. I thought of the Savior in Gethsemane when he went out in the garden and prayed “Father, if it be possible let this cup pass from me.” And I thought if He could bow and accept it, than it was right for me to accept the plan just as it had been made. So I said, “Father thy will, not mine be done.” Just as the Savior did, I took my words from His example. Well, Father left me then and early the next morning, I got word that Charlie had been killed. I’ve had many experiences like that, I’ve had many testimonies. Some people would say that it was foolish that the voice should speak to me. But I know that I heard the voice. And I know that I saw my father. I knew him intimately. I saw him and he saw me. We talked to each other. I know that he lived after death; and if he lived after death, so will we. We’ll all live after death.

Charles F Broadbent was 18 years old when The Great Blizzard of 1888 struck the northeastern United States, producing snowdrifts in excess of 50 ft (15 m) and confining some people to their houses for up to a week. The Great Blizzard of 1888 or Great Blizzard of '88 was one of the most severe recorded blizzards in the history of the United States of America. The storm, referred to as the Great White Hurricane, paralyzed the East Coast from the Chesapeake Bay to Maine, as well as the Atlantic provinces of Canada. Snowfalls of 10 to 58 inches fell in parts of New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut, and sustained winds of more than 45 miles per hour (72 km/h) produced snowdrifts in excess of 50 feet (15 m). Railroads were shut down, and people were confined to their houses for up to a week. Railway and telegraph lines were disabled, and this provided the impetus to move these pieces of infrastructure underground. Emergency services were also affected.
