Charles Quinton, a pioneer of Leavitt, Alberta district, was born on January 19,1859 at Crab Gutter (Neatly), Hampshire, England. His parents were James Quinton and Elizabeth Brown both of Downtown, Wiltshire, England . He was one of a family of four boys and five girls. As a boy Charles herded sheep for his father and trained a dog to be clever helper for him. At an early age he experienced a display of great faith. His young brother Harry drowned in the lake in front of their house. Charles brought the garden rake and his mother found Harry and raked him to shore. She pumped the water from his lungs and breathed into him at intervals for long hours until natural breathing returned. At the age of 21 Charles came to the U.S.A. by boat which took nine days. When he arrived he worked at anything he could; but was a carpenter and painter by trade. Later he went into farming and ranching. At the age of 22 he married Martha Wells of Fraeham, Hampshire, England and moved to Bloomington, Idaho in the Bear Lake Vicinity. He worked at carpentering and shortly his sister Sarah and her husband William cooper arrived from England. They Brought Martha's Niece, Ada Louise Wells. In 1892 five families loaded up their possessions and came to Canada by covered wagon, trailing stock the 800 miles. The caravan included Charles and Martha(Wells)Quinton, Ada Louise Wells, his brother James and Elizabeth(Dunford) Quinton and family, William and Sarah(Quinton) Cooper and family, Fred Walburger, and James McMurray and family. Arriving in Cardston, Charles had plenty of work at his carpenter trade. About two years later he took out a homestead west of Cardston called " Buffalo Flats" which later became Leavitt. Charles built homes while while other men hauled hay to Cardston for him to take care of his cattle for the winter. The next summer he built a home on his own homestead of 160 acres, the NE1/4-6-3-26-W4. Lavonte Marsden was the owner at the time of writing(1976). William Cooper homesteaded a piece of land on the south. Mountains for a background and rolling foothills with grass growing four to five feet tall, where, as more people arrived a small branch or ward of the L.D.S. Church was organized which necessitated a church house. Charles became first Counselor to Bishop Frank Leavitt and was in charge of building the church house which measured 20 feet by 50 feet. Logs were hauled and in the hands of a master builder became the first meeting house in Leavitt. He also constructed the benches which after 50 years of hard service were still in good condition in 1960 when a new chapel was built. Charles was a very religious man and gave much of his time and talent for the up-building of the community. He was a generous man, giving of his property as well as his time. He donated a piece of his land in Leavitt to be used to build a school, the property on which the new church now stands was part of his land. He knew how to make lime for mortar which he used for chinking between the logs and in chimney building and rock foundations. He could witch a well with a forked stick and was much in demand for this service. He and Will Cooper owned the fist binder in the district. They did custom work for neighbors, each man driving four head of horses in the three hour shift, and worked from daybreak until dark. In return for this service they were paid in firewood , logs and corral rails. Charles was known as the champion grain stooker. He could stook grain so that none ever spoiled from moisture, and taught this art to many others. Charles' wife,Martha, had no children.She was an excellent cook and many good parties and firesides were enjoyed in the Quinton home by young and old alike. Martha became ill (stomach cancer)and died, leaving an empty spot in the Leavitt community. Charles then married Francesca Charlotte Keeley from Kentish Town, Middlesex, England who had come out with Lucy Proctor on November 22, 1913. Life on a ranch was very different for one raised in a city but she quickly adapted to her new life. She was a lovely piano player and singer and was willing to use her talents in the new community. She accepted responsibilities and filled them honorably. When she was eight years of age she had played in large concerts and before coming to America had played and sung to royalty on many occasions. She had an outstanding memory for music and on one occasion E.J. Wood gave her a piece of music she had never seen before and she played it beautifully, and when the music was taken away she could play if from memory just the same. Francesca died July 22, 1922 leaving her family of young children, the oldest being only 10 years old. 1.(The youngest child Olive Elizabeth Quinton was given to Jeremiah Hatch Woodruff and Teaura Newby Woodruff, to be taken care of right after Francesca death. Olive was not allowed to see her family again until her father was sick in the hospital . Charles said to her " Olie I am so sorry. " He must of known how hard it was for her . Growing up in the Woodruff home was difficult . Teaura was not kind. But Olive tried to please her and worked very hard and learned to bake bread and pies. Jeremiah was the kind one to Olive and she did love her custodial father .) Charles lived until November 12,1933, never complaining of his troubles as he took care of his family and when his time was close he left them ( the other children minus Olive) in the guardianship of Bishop George E. Cahoon. Francesca and Charles Quinton's children are:MARTHA ( married Jay Jennings Moore), ROMA ( married Orval Jabez Burrows), VELMA (married Sorren Sorrenson), VENICE (married Charles Martin), CHARLES EVERARD( married Eleene Blackmore), OLIVE ELIZABETH (married John Lewis Oviatt). Charles motto in life was; "Do the Lord's work first and your own will be done later." So many remember him as a great and good man. Life history was taken from the Chief Mountain County : a history of Cardson and district. volume 1 . Some additions have been made. Each are annotated by a number and were added and given by Kimberly Lay Jackson, granddaughter, of Olive Elizabeth Quinton Woodruff ( She went by Betty through her life)
