      PERSONAL HISTORY:
      I was born 17 Jul 1873 at Garneck, Fifeshire, Scotland, daughter of Robert Hogg Jr. and Mary Ann Norman. Garneck is a town of average size in the maritime co., of Fifeshire, located in the East of Scotland. It is bounded on the north by Firth of Tay, on the east by the North Sea, on the west by the counties of Perth, Kinross and Clackmanand and on the south by the Firth of Forth; across which is Edinborough. Dunfirmlin, a town where the family lived where some of the family were born.
      The family joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and came to Utah in 1875. I was a sickly child only two years old. She was stricken by an epedemic which was raging on the boat and was the cause of much worry to the parents on the entire trip across the water. The parents had all of their possessions in a large box and some bundles. As the train on which we were riding passes through the little valley of the Weber River, father recognized it as the place Grandfather Hogg lived, and had described to his as Morgan Co. As the train stopped only a few minutes in the Weber Canyon, he hurried his little family from the train onto a freight train flat car which was going back to Morgan. The strain of lifting the big box and family, overcame him and nearly caused his death.
      My health improved and I took my share of family tasks as I grew older. We children gathered bright pebbles which father cast into the white plaster on the outside of our new house. Father was a mason doing brick and adobe work
      as well as plastering and painting. I attended the public schools last of which was the Morgan Stake Academy. Some of my schoolmates were: The Welches, Amelis Francis, The Grover girls, Hannah, Evelyn and Della, The Turners,
      Gibbes, and Frys. The teachers were Albert N. Tollestrup, Dr. Karl G. Maaser and Dr. Joseph Tanner. One of the first teachers was James Mason.
      When I was 15 years old, I left school and found ployment to provide for myself and help with the expenses of the family. I did housework and one of my employers whom I loved was Mrs. Driver in Ogden, Utah. I also worked as a
      milliner there.
      At an early age I was taught to have faith in God and learned to call on him when in sickness and danger and always received help.
      In the early days in Morgan, the young people had very few places for entertainment, but one such was the times we could gather at the Union Pacific Railroad Station to see the train come in, then go to the post office for the
      mail. On one occasion a young North Morgan boy, Thomas Grover, who had met with an accident some time previous, was having trouble getting his horse untied. I assisted him and he took me to my home, which was in South Morgan
      across the river. A friendship sprang up which developed into love and we were married in the Logan Temple on 29 Jun 1892, by Brother Merril. We lived at Stottard, west of Morgan on a farm which was his Mother's inheritance. His
      mother had died when he was 15 years old, leaving five children, Thomas, Evelyn, Hannah, Adelgunda, Daniels Wells, and an infant daughter who only lived a short time.
      Our children: Merle, Elizabeth, Leo and Mary were born here. Evelyn and Della were married; Hannah was attending school at Provo, Utah.
      Here at Stottard, my husband was Presiding Elder of our Branch of the Church, also Superintendent of the Sunday School, a trustee of the School, and I was counselor in the Relief Society, and teacher in Sunday School and Primary.
      In 1900, many families sought their fortunes in Idaho and Wyoming. Some of Thomas' relatives had taken up land in the Upper Snake River Valley. After investigating the possibilities, Thomas bought a farm of 160 acres in
      Salem, a small community north of Rexburg, Idaho. He and my brother Robert moved our 27 animals (cows and horses), the machinery, seed grain, some hay and oats and the household furniture by covered wagon, whitetop buggy and on
      foot from Morgan west through Weber Canyon to Corrinne to Malad and north to Salem Idaho. The trip took them two weeks and they arrived the last of March 1900. I together with my four children, our clothing, bedding came by train.
      It was an exceedingly hard trip. I was weak from a severe case of diptheria the previous winter, Merle and Lizzie had also been very sick. There were several overnight delays at Ogden, Pocatello, and Idaho Falls. We arrived at
      Rexburg in a drizzling snow storm on the 1st of April. Thomas was not here to meet us. We went inside the old depot where there were several trappers with their furs (stinking). Around the room were several spittoons, trunks, valices and traps. It was a dreary smoky outlook, but the children thought it exciting and blamed my tears to the bad weather, thinking they were caused by my pretty
      new spring hat getting wet. I got a Mr. Ricks from the livery stable to take us to Salem in his whitetop buggy. When we arrived, Thomas and Bob were trying to fix the tongue in the whitetop. They had started to meet the train,
      but one of the horses had bolted and broken the tongue.
      We lived in a rented house for a time while Thomas and his brother-in-law William Worlton got out logs and with the help of Hyrum Bell and Wells Cheney built us a large log house adjoining the town site. This was a nice home and
      we were comfortable while clearing the sage brush from the land, making ditches, and putting in the crops. Angus our second son was born in this house on 31 Aug 1901. By this time my parents had come to prove up on land, so their sons could have land. Our farm proved successful and we built shed, a nice barn and planted an orchard, under the expert supervision of my father who had been a gardener for aristockricy in the old country.
      Norma was born 14 Feb 1904, the year my brother Norman died. After this Father and Mother went back to their home in Morgan.
      The family was getting to large for out two room house, so we added three more rooms made of brick, which were laid by Henry and Jared Rock, two old friends who had lived in Morgan. Then my brother Bob stuccoed and painted the
      log part red, then marked it off to resemble brick. Three more children, Roscoe-2 Jun 1906, Isabella-24 May 1909, Elva-9 Jul 1912. All three of these children were born in this home.
      Thomas was 2nd counselor to Bishop Victor Hegsted in the Salem Ward.
      I worked in the different organizations, especially the Primary.
      In 1913, we sold our home and moved to a farm on the edge of Sugar City. We had a lovely home here. A two story frame house with five rooms and a pantry, a closet down stairs, and four bedrooms and closets up stairs. We had a good garden, lovely lawn and flowers here. We all worked in the Church and the children attended the good schools. On the 30 Apr, Morgan was born and I suffered with Milk Leg all summer. Merle was married to Ellis P. Wilding 2
      Jun 1914 in the Salt Lake Temple. Grant Robert was born 26 Jan 1918. Leo married Lizzie Leone Wilding on 29 May 1918.
      Although the home at sugar city was almost ideal, still sugar beet farming was a new and hard task. Thomas had spent a great deal of his life on the large Echo Canyon cattle ranch of his Uncle Daniel Heiner; so when he got the
      opportunity to trade the beet farm for 200 acres of land with a large stock of cattle, a large house (unfinished) and good barn sheds, shop, grainery, etc., we traded and moved to Fox Creek, Chapin Ward in Teton Basin. Shortly
      thereafter, Merl's husband Ellis P. Wilding took typhoid fever and with the addition of influenza, passed away on 22 Sep 1918, leaving her with two small children and not much else. The crops were good for a time and the children
      big and little hand plenty of chance to work at home. Putting up hay, milking the cows, feeding the many animals and tending and selling the milk.
      Chapin was a friendly community and all enjoyed the church work, dances and parties, also the school. The young folks stayed with Merle for a time and went to high school in Sugar City. The family was stricken with the Flu, and everyone except Merle had it. But all pulled through. We were very fortunate for many passed away. The country was in a depression, and we did not escape
      that. In fact, we never quite overcame it's effects. Merle and Mary went to summer school in Pocatello during the summer of 1920 to prepare to teach school.
      Mary had a school at Jefferson Co. and Merle at Cache, Teton Co. In October,
      Mary was married to Alma A. Kunz; of the same year Norma was married to Evan B. Floyd, and Merle was married to Solomon Fullmer on 22 Dec 1920. We moved to Draper, Utah in 1930 and engaged in farming, chicken raising, dairying and stayed there two years. This move did not work out and we were glad to return to Teton Basin, where we lived in Driggs in several different houses,down on the Covet, the Timpson place, the Hobbs house, the old Eddington Hotel, the Paul place.
      We finally bought the Chestie Henry place and remodeled it,and made us a very comfortable home. We had chickens, some cows still at the place where Grant lived, a nice garden. Morgan was married on 1 Jun 1937 to Ivy Lorraine
      Griggs. Grant was married on 2 Oct 1940 to Leona Josephine Nelson. Angus had married Charlotte Hablin on 18 Dec 1924. Roscoe was married to Lucile Vaudrey on 23 Apr 1931. Isabel had married David Earl Simmons on 25 Feb 1927. Elva
      had married Eldon Winger on 2 Apr 1930. Elizabeth never married, she was a true musician and played the tunes she liked.
      Thomas had cancer in his late years and suffered terribly. Finally passing away on 22 Sep 1948 at home here in Driggs. Lizzie health began to fail and after an operation she passed away in Feb 1949.
      I have raised eleven children. All of them except one have married and have families, and all of them have had their endowments.
      Isabella Hogg Grover passed away 9 Dec 1950 after a stroke at home in Driggs. She was buried beside her husband, Thomas M. Grover and her daughter Elizabeth in the Rexburg Cemetery in Madison Co., Rexburg, Idaho, on 12 Dec 1950 This
      history was found in material obtained from a family reunion in abt 1981.
