Notes
a. Note:   NI190894
Note:   Written April 1991 by Cleo Blatter. I was two and a half years ald when dad came home from his mission in South Africa. He had been home a couple of days when I asked mother how much longer this man was going to stay. Dad bought a dry farm south east of Ammon, Idaho. I would go with Mother and horse and buggy to Idaho Falls for groceries. It was about ten miles one way. One day Mom and I were just outside the house. We heard something coming up the Dugway. Finally a car came around the bend. Here it was Dad. He got a Model T Ford. I will never forget the smell of that new car. By this time I had a brother and a sister. One day we went to Lorenzo, Idaho to see Dad's sister and her family. On the way home we had an electric storm. The road made a square turn across a large irrigation canal. The lightning struck Dad and his hands fell from the steering wheel, and we turned over in the water. The water caused dad to come to, and we got everyone out but Ila. The body was missing. Dad and I ran along the bank of the canal for a long distance, I thought. But the back cushion of the car was bobing along. Ila was lying on it. Her little face was blue. My father administered to her, and she came to. We were so happy and greatful to our father in heaven. In 1928, we moved to Chinook, Montana. We had a hard time for several years. We had to learn how to farm all over again. It was a difficut climate. The soil was much heavier. So we had to learn how to irrigate the crops. The 2nd of November, 1931, I left to begin my mission for the LDS church. I was sent to Fairmont, West Virginia. We traveled without purse or script most of the time. I spent most of my time in the smoke holes of West Virginia. The people were very poor. I had the experience of cutting grain with a Syth and cradle. I returned home in Sept 1932 due to my health. On April 17, 1933, Beryl and I were married. May 27, 1933 Beryl was baptized a member of the LDS Church. Feb 10, 1934 our first son was born, Coyne Alton. We were blessed with five boys and 2 girls. July 24, 1934, we went to the Alberta Canada Temple and Coyne was sealed to us. That was a most wonderful experience. We farmed in Chinook, Malta, and Glasgow. In 1958, I went to work for Farm Equipment as Service Man. August 14, 1972, Beryl passed away with cancer. Tillie and I were married February 11, 1973. We farmed and ranched in Opheim, Montana until 1975. We retired and moved to Glasgow, Montana, and we are still tired.Written April 1991 by Cleo Blatter.
