    Birth: Area is now called Mt Emmons

    Occupation: Accountant and Farmer

    Burial: Blufdale City Cemetery

    Walter was a farmer and an accountant. He was born on the banks of Lake Fork River near the place where the town of Mt. Emmons, Duchesne County, Utah; stands today. His father and uncle pioneered the opening of that area for homesteading. His early life was spent riding horse, exploring Indian paintings, fishing, and herding cows. His early schooling was in a log school house; he attended school at Bluebell and then at Mt. Emmons.

    It was at that point in his life when the first notable tragedy occurred. The family had just moved back to their home on the ranch from having wintered in Mt. Emmons. The house was cold from having been lived in during the winter months. So having unpacking the first load of belongings, they started a large fire to warm up the house until they returned with the second load. Just they were leaving they looked back and saw that the house was on fire. Pork stored in barrels and honey in cans had been placed in the attic.

    The containers had exploded and honey dripped down through the ceiling; the fire was so they had to stand by while the house burned to the ground- nothing was saved.

    The family then moved to Salt Lake City, where Walter Leon finished his schooling. Walter graduated from L.D.S. College and attended B.Y.U. in Provo. He has filled many church positions, scouting positions, and community leadership jobs.

    History:
    Spring Glen Branch, HDC WfT pt1, pg 2, Elder, Priest, Teacher, rebapt. 5 Sep. 1889 by T. Pratt, Recieved from Price 24 Nov 1889

    1918 Lived on 235 Hazel Street SLC Utah.
    Ref: William Lamar Ewell's WWI draft card listed his father's residence in 1918

    He is buried right next to his wife in the Provo City Cemetery.

    William's first words were swear words he learned from the mill workers in his father's plant. He usually played on the front porch, but being an adventurous child, one day he wandered off. A mill race ran in front of the the house.

    HIs mother and neighbors were frantically searching for him, and thinking he had drowned, had turned off the mill water race water and were looking everywhere they thought the body might have lodged. The boy boy walked up to his mother, from the rear, and pulling on her dress, asked what she was looking for; she almost fainted.

    Having a sensitve stomach, Will had a hard time trying different new food. He tried eating bear meat, but said the meat the more he chewed each bite, the bigger it got.

    In 1882, the Ewells moved to the Helper, in Spring Glen; where they bought a farm on the Price River. They were some of the first settlers in that part of the country. They raised melons, sugar cane and horse radish, all of which they processed and sold.

    At the age of twelve years, Will saw his future wife for the first time, when her family, the Asa Elijah Bigelow's, were moving from Gunlock, Washington County; Utah, to Provo. They had been camping on the river at the Ewell place and Will went down to get acquainted.

    While talking to the boys he saw this beautiful little five year old, golden -haired, blue-eyed girl. He never saw her again until he went to the academy at Provo. He lived in the Bigelow home.

    Will, as he was always known, owned the first coal mine in Spring Canyon. He found it while rounding up cattle. Not having eithr the money or transportation to move it, he sold the mine to a large company , this mine was later known as the Store's mine.

    At the age of seventeen, Will developed diptheria. This sickness was so bad, it destroyed his tonsils and pallet. Thinking he wouldn't live long, his father asked if there was anything he would like to eat. His request was for hamhock and beans. When Will ate them, it seemed to put a coating on his stomach and throat. This put him to sleep and he got better.

    An interesting case happened with the Bigelow boys. While they had been camping on the Ewell property they had been sleeping on the ground. When Will's father came to check on them one morning he found mountain lion track's and could see where the lion had lain at the heads of the boys, waiting for one of them to move. A train had come through nearby, during the night, and when it had whistled it scared the cat away.

    At the age of nineteen, William went to Provo to attend the Brigham Youth Academy and lived at the home of Asa E. Bigelow. Being a friend of the Bigelow boys, this way a natural place to stay. Lillian and her chums had a natural crush on Will, so when he teased her about not going out with him, she took it seriously. Her brother told him, he better not not disappoint her, and after the first date, they courted, and fell in love.

    The first home they occuppied was behind the Ewell store in Spring Glen. They then moved to Tintic, Utah, where Will went into the mining business. From there they moved to Provo.

    At the time first child was born with the help of a mid-wife, Mrs. Davis, they were still living at the Ewell store. The next two babies were at Grandma Bigelow's home in Provo. When Vivian was two or 2 1/2, every day about eleven o'clock she would ask for bread and milk. She take it and go to the cottonwoods. Her mother was curious one day, so one she followed her and found her feeding big blow snake. That friendship abruptedly ended.

    William died 26 October 1950 of four different heart conditions.
