Hyrum Broadbent WWI Story

Přispěvatel: dgmurray Vytvořeno: 1 year před Aktualizováno: 4 months 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.

Francis Greenwood Broadbent

Francis Greenwood Broadbent was born 28th of April 1839 at Cars, Cheshire, England. His father William Broadbent was born 12th April 1811 at Hurst, Lancashire, England. His mother Mary Greenwood was born 30th April, 1811 at Todmorden, Lancashire, England. Grandfather had five sisters and one brother, Grace, Elizabeth, Nancy, Esther, Mary and William. He and Elizabeth were twins. Esther and Mary passed away when children. Grace married Jessie Easters Murphy; Elizabeth married Charles Malin Dagget; Nancy married Hyrum Pearse Folsom; William married Ellen Stevens. Grandfather was baptized on the 5th day of September 1854. The 24th day of December 1860 he married Sarah Frances Steers. The 23rd of March 1861 they were sealed to each other in the Endowment House at Salt Lake City, Utah. To this union nine children were born, William Francis, John Howell, Sarah Frances, Elijah, Charles Franklin, Levi Delmar, Hyrum, Eliza Charlotte, and Maud Elizabeth. William Francis and John Howell passed away when children. Sarah Frances (Aunt Fanny we called her) married Andrew Morgan Spence; Elijah married Leah Curtis; Charles Franklin married Emeline Painter; Levi Delmar married Lettuce Ann Haslam; Hyrum married Lorana Smith; Eliza Charlotte married Samuel Redford Haslam and Maud Elizabeth married Moroni Allen. Grandfather came to America with his parents when very young. They lived in St. Louis, Missouri. Later when he came west he drove an ox team across the plains. After his marriage he lived in Mill Creek and Wellsville. He was very loyal to the Church and did his best to respond to the calls made of him. When living in Wellsville one Sunday at Sacrament Meeting the Bishop (William Maughn) ask for donations for some church need. Grandfather raised his hand and said “Put me down for $20.00,” then he began to think where can I raise $20.00. He had two heifers which he had been trying to sell but had been unsuccessful. He went home and said to his wife, I need cash to give to the church and I am sure the Lord will help me. The next day two cattle buyers came to town, he sold the heifers and kept this pledge with the Bishop. When telling this incident to one of his grand-daughters, he remarked to her, “you know my dear I have never been so in my life that I could not raise a donation to help the Lord’s work.” Grandfather herded sheep in the mountains in the summer time. He told of some incidents which happened at that time. One day a bear came to their camp, he called for Grandmother to bring his gun. He shot and wounded the bear then followed it until he shot and killed it.
Another time he had his young son, Charles, with him in the mountains. They were sitting watching the sheep, when suddenly he grabbed Charles and pushed him down the hill. A rattlesnake was crawling through the sagebrush right behind him. The snake was shot, they counted sixteen rattles on it. Grandfather lived in a large two-story house in Wellsville. The upstairs had a wall through the middle of it with bedrooms on both sides, with two stairways. It is situated on the north west corner of the block diagonally across the street South East from the Good Morning Milk Co., dairy, which is now used for a cheese factory (1967). Before Grandfather left Wellsville to come to Canada he sold their home to a man by the name of Mr. Wyatt. Leo Harrison who married Mr. Wyatt’s granddaughter now owns it. Grandfather and family lived in this home until the 23rd of May 1893. His sons were getting at the age when they would be taking companions and starting homes of their own. Not having money to finance themselves in starting new homes they decided to come to Canada where other Latter Day Saints from Wellsville had come, and take up homesteads. They sold their home, traded sheep for cattle, gathered food and what possessions could be brought in their wagons. On the 23rd of May 1893 all that were leaving in Grandfather’s Company gathered at his place, here they said goodbye to relatives and friends who wished them well on their journey to Canada. Their hearts were heavy but they felt like they were doing what was for the best. Grandfather, Grandmother, Charles Franklin and wife Emeline, Levi Delmar, Hyrum, Eliza Charlotte and Maud Elizabeth all came at that time, later Sarah Frances and husband Andrew came, Elijah never came to Canada except for a visit. The trek was slow and tedious by wagons and team, also driving cattle. They made their way through the mountains, fording streams of water, driving over desert and sagebrush land. They followed what was known as the Blue Trail, there being only two bridges over streams in the whole trek. They told of eating rabbits and sage hens. They always rested on the Sabbath day. They went through many hardships but also many happy hours. When they reached the St. Mary’s River near Cardston, Grandfather had some difficulty with his team and wagon but the Police were there and helped them across to safety. On the 5th of July they arrived in Cardston, Andrew Archibald (a friend who had come from Wellsville) invited them to camp on his lot. The next day he showed them some of the country. Five days later on July 10th they went west of Cardston to what was known then as Buffalo Flat (now known as Leavitt) the grass was up to the horse’s sides and strawberries were plentiful at that time of the year. They pitched their tents and found the surveyors stakes which marked the corners of each section of land. They got the number of the quarter sections they wanted to homestead. Grandfather and sons drove to Lethbridge in a Democrat (a two seated buggy) to file their claims. On their arrival at the Land Titles Office they found a stranger had been sent to take the place of the supervisor who had left on his holiday. The man knew nothing of the lease held by a cattle rancher at Buffalo Flat. He listened as they told him who they were and what they wanted. He was very friendly toward them and gave them forms to fill out and sign. The papers were signed and sealed in their presence. They brought what provisions they could in the democrat and returned home. When the rancher found that four homesteads had been filed right in the centre of his lease he became so angry he cancelled his lease and moved across the river north. When Grandfather related his experience to President Charles Ora Card he said “God Moved in a mysterious way His wonders to perform.” Grandfather and sons went to the mountains and got logs to build a two room home. Which was the first home built in Buffalo Flat. They went to Macleod by team and wagon for the lumber they needed, they traveled over prairie land, no fences and not much of a road. Years later Grandfather built a home of five rooms, a large barn and other buildings where he housed their cows, ducks, geese and chickens. He also had a brown horse which he used in a one horse shay as it was called. It was a small one seated buggy with two shays, the horse was put in between the shays and straps and buckles on the harness were fastened to them. This was the way Grandfather and Grandmother traveled about. As Grandchildren we were happy if we could sit or stand in a little space behind the seat and ride with our Grandparents. When they made their trips to Cardston a bundle of oats would go into that space behind the seat. A little bucket of oats in which the eggs would be packed to take to market. They would have a few pounds of butter packed in a box with green grass packed around it to keep it as cool as possible. When they got to Cardston, after the eggs were taken out and sold, the horse would enjoy his oat bundle and oats before returning home. Grandfather was a good gardener, he raised gooseberries, red, white, and black currants, raspberries and all kinds of vegetables, which he shared with his friends and family. He was a faithful Latter Day Saint and filled many positions of trust. He as a Sunday School Superintendent, Priesthood Representative to the Relief society and was required to attend their meetings. He was a Ward Teacher for many years. He taught his family the principles of the Gospel, to obey and respect those in authority. He was thrifty and taught his family to be the same. We as grandchildren loved him very dearly, we all have our happy memories of his kindness and love for us. He passed away the 23rd of April 1917 at his home in Leavitt and was buried in the Leavitt Cemetery.

Francis Broadbent se narodil(a) v 1839
Francis Broadbent bylo 1 let, když Samuel Morse receives the patent for the telegraph. Samuel Finley Breese Morse was an American painter and inventor. After having established his reputation as a portrait painter, in his middle age Morse contributed to the invention of a single-wire telegraph system based on European telegraphs. He was a co-developer of the Morse code and helped to develop the commercial use of telegraphy.
Francis Broadbent bylo 20 let, když Petroleum is discovered in Titusville, Pennsylvania leading to the world's first commercially successful oil well. Petroleum is a naturally occurring, yellow-to-black liquid found in geological formations beneath the Earth's surface. It is commonly refined into various types of fuels. Components of petroleum are separated using a technique called fractional distillation, i.e. separation of a liquid mixture into fractions differing in boiling point by means of distillation, typically using a fractionating column.
Francis Broadbent bylo 21 let, když Abraham Lincoln is elected as the 16th President of United States. Abraham Lincoln was an American statesman and lawyer who served as the 16th President of the United States from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States through the American Civil War—its bloodiest war and perhaps its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis. In doing so, he preserved the Union, abolished slavery, strengthened the federal government, and modernized the economy.
Francis Broadbent bylo 38 let, když Thomas Edison announces his invention of the phonograph, a machine that can record and play sound. Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.
Francis Broadbent bylo 49 let, když 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.
Francis Broadbent bylo 56 let, když George VI of the United Kingdom (d. 1952) George VI was King of the United Kingdom and the Dominions of the British Commonwealth from 11 December 1936 until his death in 1952. He was the last Emperor of India and the first Head of the Commonwealth.
Francis Broadbent bylo 66 let, když Albert Einstein publishes his first paper on the special theory of relativity. Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. He is best known to the general public for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2, which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation". He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect", a pivotal step in the development of quantum theory.
