  • Notes 
    • Birth: Blessing record
      Blessed: 29 Sept 1870, by F.M. Ewell, page 156 Santaquin Ward Rec 027,323
      Bapt: 1880,[no day and month given] by Eli Openshaw, Midway Ward record of Members, Film 026,184 page 19, 1897
      IGI: gives this date even though it's before 8 years old. She was rebaptized in the following record:
      Recorded on the 24 Nov 1895, Spring Glen Branch, HDC film WRF pt 1, Page 2:
      Received from Price Ward, Parents FM Ewell and Fanny Weech, Rebapt. 6 Sept 1888, was rebaptized in 1894 and went away later with husband Dan Dennis"

      When Laura Ann was growing up there were no schools nearby and used to take a school book with while she would herd cows. By this means, she learned how to read and spell. There wasn't any school until her father built a house large enough to hold a school, church, and a place in which to play; this was when she was 14 years old.

      As Laura tells the story, - after she married Daniel, they really had a hard time because jobs were scarce and they lived in shacks. In the winter, when the cold was below zero, and snow drifts came into the house, there was no way to keep warm because the wood pile was underneath the snow. Her husband was oftern away from the from in order to find work, and the two oldest children had to do too of the much work around the house.
