LIFE STORY OF LEWIS RIAL AND LOIS EMELINE WINEGAR ALLEN.
This is the life story of our Father, Lewis Rial (Riley) Allen and our Mother,
Emeline Winegar Allen. Dad was the 7th son and the youngest son of Samuel Jackson Allen and Caroline Marie Davids Allen. He being the 7th son acquired the name of "Doc". He was affectionately called that all of his life.
Dad was born at Lewiston, Ut on 6 Sept 1886. Three years later, his only sister Caroline was born, 19 Sept 1889. From that time on, Grandmother Allen was left an invalid, and for 10 years she was in a chair or her bed.
Dad's Father and Mother both came across the plains with the handcart company. Samuel Jackson Allen was Capt. of one of the companies. As they trudged across the plains he noticed our little Danish Grandmother, who couldn't speak English, and was so lonely and frail. He befriended her and helped her all he could.
Grandad Samuel Jackson Allen hadn't joined the Church at this time, but his father and brothers had. He offered to be a leader of the Company to Utah.
Grandmother Allen was born of Danish parents in Nordruplund, Soro, Den. She was the eldest child of well to do parents. When she was 16 years old, she heard the Mormon Missionaries, and started attending their cottage meetings as often as she could. When her parents found out about her interest in the gospel, they forbid her to go again. But her faith was so strong, she could not give up her new found belief so when the missionaries left to come to America, our little Grandmother had taken her belongings and had smuggled herself on the ship bound for America. When they were 3 days out at sea, she came out of her hiding place and had with her food and money for her passage.
After 6 weeks at sea, the company arrived in New York. Arrangements were soon made and the Elders and immigrants left for Winter Quarters, Where they were met by teams that had been sent by Brigham Young. Pres. Young asked James Allen to go and furnish teams and wagons. James said he could not go but would send Sam. Sam was James' son, and not a member of the Church, but he went as Capt. of the Company. Sam, our Grandfather, could not forget the wistful little Danish girl, and after several trips across the plains, he was converted, and married Caroline Marie Davids in the Endowment House in Salt Lake City, Utah.
During the late 1860's the tract of land lying between the Bear River and Cub River was used as grazing land. The 1st efforts to found a settlement in the locality proved unsuccessful because of failure to bring water for irrigation. The Ist settlers pastured their cattle and sold cheese and butter to the freighter who passed by. It was believed the settlers did not make permanent homes there until 1870. The pioneers who made homes in Lewiston from 1870-1872 are honored with a monument. And those who followed them and helped build the foundation for the beautiful city, are named on that monument.
Among those named , were Samuel Jackson Allen and Caroline Davids Allen, also John Rial Allen, our Grandfather's brother. This was copied from records of the Daughters of the Pioneers.
Their 1st two children, George Davids, born 20 Oct 1868, and Samuel Jackson Jr. born 20 Jan 1871, were born in Draper, Utah. In 1871 or 1872, they were asked by Pres. Brigham Young to help settle Cache Valley, They went to Lewiston, Cache Valley, Utah and built a home, took up land and settled in the heart of Lewiston. They were one of the 1st families in the Valley. It was here, brothers: James, born 20 Aug 1873; [Conrad, born 28 March 1874, Draper, Utah, by a different Mother]; Arthur, born 9 May 1876; Julius born 20 Oct 1879; Francis, born 31 Aug 1883; our father Lewis Rial was born 6 Sept 1886; and then Caroline, born 18 Sept 1889.
There is little known about Dad's childhood and growing up. He never talked to us about it. His sisters-in-law and sister told us all we know. They told us he was a sweet affectionate child, laughing a lot and was noted for his pranks, and for his jolliness. When Uncle Julius married, Aunt Ada said Dad made many unkind remarks about her cooking. She said she was a poor cook, every time Dad sat down to a meal, he made remarks about her lumpy gravy and hard biscuits.
Grandmother Allen passed away when Dad was 14 years old, after that time he lived with his Father and his married brothers. He was fun loving and spoiled, but was loved by everyone. Sister Audessa Wilcox said they were in the same school, and was well liked, so good and generous to everyone. Sister Wilcox said she loved to go to Grandfather's home because of the friendliness and hospitality there.
When our father was 21, his father died at Lewiston. Dad and Aunt Carrie were the only ones of the children not married, so when the property was divided, the brothers moved to Idaho, to the upper Snake River Valley to take up homesteads. They settled at Parker, Fremont Co. ID. in 1908. They proved up on land northwest of Parker, a place called "The Junipers".
At that time our Father met and fell in love with our Mother, Lois Emeline Winegar. She was born 22 Apr 1890. She was the 4th child and 2nd daughter of George Stephen Winegar and Emeline Parker Winegar. At the time Mother was 8 years old, circumstances in the home were so deplorable, their Father gone so much, that Grandmother divorced him. In 1900, she remarried. She married Joseph Hussey Brower. In 1901, Mother's sister Arvilla was born, a year later they moved to Canada to build the canals at Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. These canals were built by 4 Brower brothers. They lived in Canada about 2 years. The winters were so severe, and circumstances were rough, but they enjoyed living there. After they moved back to the states, Vesta, the youngest child was born. Mother really loved her 2 younger sisters, altho she had other sisters and brothers. Laura Lavina, the oldest, born 30 Mar l885; George Stephen, stillborn 29 Nov 1886; William Henry, born 31 May 1888; Klea Rhoda, born 26 May 1893 and Eliza Ann, born 7 Dec l895.
Our Grandmother's Mother, Eliza Ann Parker and Grandfather, Wyman Minard Parker, had been sent to settle the Upper Snake River Valley. He being a surveyor, laid out the town of Parker, which was named after him. He was the 1st Bishop of Parker, and at the time of his death, he was a Patriarch. Grandmother Parker's health was very poor so our Mother went to work for her. She had so much work to do, washing, ironing and cooking for Uncles Lionel and Albert, 3 small cousins, Frank, Joel and Josephine Oviatt, children of Grandmother Brower's sister Lucy, who died in Canada. There was also Grandmother's sister Caroline to care for. Mother had to churn, bake the bread and take care of the very large house. Mother was loved by everyone, especially the Uncles there. She had Typhoid fever and was at death's door. She received a special blessing from one of the High Council, and was told that she would recover and would raise a large family, and would have her family in Heaven. Mother lived at Grandmother Parker's until she was about 18 years old.
This was the time when she met our Father, and they fell in love. Our Mother, as we have been told by Dad's family and her own family, was a lovely, tall, big boned girl, 5ft. 8in., with large gray eyes, and dark wavy hair. She was very modest and bashful. We have been told that Dad was her Ist and only boy friend. Dad was very handsome and dashing, having dark auburn hair and blue eyes. He was 5 ft. 11 in. tall and had a very jolly winning personality. He came there from UT. and had the fastest span of mares, and a new rubber tired buggy. He fell in love with Mother from the start. They were married 20 Jan 1909 at Parker, Idaho by Bishop Miller.
Their first home was two rooms of Uncle Arthur's home at Teton, ID. In the spring the men all went to their farms to build a summer home also to fence and improve their land. Mother cooked for most of the men, as many never had housing for their families. In the winter, the men moved their families into the town of Parker. In the spring of 5 Apr 1910, lona Emeline was born, their Ist child, in a brick house 1 mile North and 1 mile West of Parker. Dad was very happy that she was a girl. Dad and Mother had hard times and little to do with, just as many others had at that time. Mabel was born 29 Jan 1912 at Parker, during a terrible blizzard. Dad had to go to St. Anthony in the snow storm for the Doctor. Stella was born 10 Nov 1913 at the Post Office building that had been converted into living quarters for the family. Mother said that Dad was very good at helping her with the washing and hanging out the clothes. They moved then East and South of Parker, down by the River. Most of their time was spent visiting. I never heard Mother and Dad mention going to Church, except when the babies were blessed.
Our brother Ronald Lewis was born 17 Sept 1915, in a little house by the railroad tracks, across from the Parker Church. He was a beautiful blonde little boy and we thought he was special because he was the only boy, as he grew he had such a sweet disposition. Winifred was born 19 Sept 1917 in Parker. At that time we were living in 2 front rooms at Mr. Mason's house, across the street from Uncle Julius and Aunt Ada. We were very close and enjoyed them.
When the folks had crop failure in the Junipers, they sold out and moved to St. Anthony. Several of their friends, who had lived in Parker, were Mel Baker, he married Mother's girl friend Mary Flint, Ed and El Stocks who we called Uncle Ed and Aunt El. Hyde and Maude Dopp, Will R, and Florence Terry, Charles and Thora Bright and the Jim Ferguson family. Daddy got a homestead up above Newdale, on Canyon Creek, in the spring we went up there and returned when school started in September.
At the close of World War I, ending in Nov 1918, there was a terrible flu epidemic that took so many lives. Mother was ill with the flu and very near to death. We children were taken to Uncle Arthur's home to stay until Mother improved, Our dear little Grandmother Brower took care of many patients in her home and helped to take care of Mother too. They hired a nurse to care for Mother also. By the power of the Priesthood and the faith of Mother and the Family, she was healed. Our Grandmother was so willing and brave to go into homes where the flu was and to care for the sick.
Daddy tried to struggle through crop failure and hard times which made it very hard for our parents. The 29 Nov 1919 Maxine was born. At that time we lived in a duplex with our Grandmother Brower. Maxine was such a pretty child, we all loved her so much, times were very difficult, but with a cow and a garden our Mother managed very well. We never knew a time when we felt that we didn't have plenty to eat.
We always enjoyed going up to the dry farm, we always had good times, even tho we didn't have any luxuries, just the necessities. There was so much love in our home, Daddy would often sing melodies which we enjoyed. He was always so good to Mother, He always told us, "Girls, make things easy for Mother, and be good to her".
One incident that we remember when we lived on the dry farm was when a small colt fell into a large hole filled with water. Mother was trying to get him out and because he had splashed water all over the edges which made it slick, Mother's feet slipped and she fell in. She had just prayed, "Lord please help me get this colt out". The colt stepped upon her knees and came out of the hole, leaving Mother in the water which was very icy as it had drained from the ice on the hill. We had to get a chair to put in the hole to get her out. It was very serious to her, but funny to us.
Our brother Robert Wendell was born 18 Oct 1921. He was our 2nd brother, so very special to us. He had such cute ways. In 1922, Dad with Uncle Will Winegar and cousin Raymond Parker also a number of others, left St. Anthony to go to work in Glenns Ferry, ID. There Daddy started working for the railroad. In April 1923, he sent for us. We traveled by train, it was the first time any of us had been on a train, which was very exciting. When we arrived in Glenns Ferry, we stayed with Uncle Will's family until our furniture arrived. We moved into an old two story house for awhile. It was there Kenneth Eugene was born 25 Mar 1924. He was our Ist redhead, and by summer he had a few freckles. We really bragged about our little redhead, he was so cute. When we lived at this house, Mother took in boarders to help with the income. The men really enjoyed Mother's cooking.
We went to the Glenns Ferry elementary school, lona in the 7th grade, Mabel in the 5th, Stella in the 3rd, and Ronald in the Ist, all being taught by Mrs. Carnes. The Church, Glenns Ferry Branch, was held in a building across the street from the school, the Bishop was Henry Blouser, his wife was Relief Society President. The town was very anti Mormon, because of the railroad strike, so there were quite a few persecutions and humiliations that we didn't know how to cope with.
Our new found friends were the Crocketts, Eldridges, Belnaps, Browers. Johnsons, Poes, Messerleys, Wardles, Raymond Parker, Hamons, Hardestys, Barnhills, Pete Sorensens, Sarge Rice, Joe and Elva Owens, Denzel Dye and many more. While we had hard times we had such love for one another also respect and adoration for our parents that we thought we were the richest family in the world. We made our own good times, as a family, and with our wonderful friends we had found. There were lots of young people in our church, we belonged to the Boise Stake 75 miles away. In 1925, we moved into a 2 story house by the Union Pacific water tank, it had 4 porches, 2 upstairs and 2 down, we had the best play area in town under the big arc light out in front of our house. As many as 20 or 30 kids met every night in front of our house. We had a great sledding hill in back of it. Our fondest memories were of that home.
Our brother Cloyd William was stillborn in this house 14 Apr 1926. He was buried in Parker, ID where Dad and Raymond took him. Dad bought a family plot there.
Winifred was deathly ill with spotted fever in 1926. Her fever was beyond reading on the thermometer. Lloyd Hunter's mother was visiting from Canada, she said if they would do as she told them, she could save Winnie's life. They dipped water from a boiler over her blanket covered body several times a day, this broke her fever. She then hemorrhaged from the nose which they packed. Her nervous system was depleted. She had to learn to crawl and walk again. It took many months for her to get well. The disease left her a very nervous and high strung person.
Stella was l4 and was baby sitting at the Montague home, when the Grandpa asked her to help him lift a boiler of boiling water. He lifted his end of the boiler higher than hers causing the hot soapy water to spill on her hands. She dropped it and fell into the boiling water. It scalded her hands, arms, legs, hips and feet. She was in bed under Dr. Davis' and Mother's care for weeks. This happened soon after our brother Howard Leon was born, 19 Sept 1928. Howard was born on Winnifred's llth birthday, she always said he was her birthday present. He was a beautiful child. Mother had such a bad time that year, having taken a bad fall, injuring both knees and one leg below the knee, also had blood clots. Vera Hardesty took care of Mother at that time. Just previous to this Dad had broken his collar bone and shoulder in a car wreck, while helping to chivaree a young couple. With no insurance and a long healing period, things were pretty rough. This time was also the beginning of the depression. lona graduated from High School in 1928, she had been on the basketball team and had the opportunity of going with the team to games all over Southern ID. After her graduation, she attended the LDS business college in Salt Lake City.
In 1930 we moved into the old Orr place, a big home with our 1st indoor plumbing. Mabel played basketball on the team and traveled to the State Tournament at Rupert , where the team won the trophy. Mabel graduated from High School in 1930, then married Jesse Coulter (Dick) Sims, then moved to Missouri to live. The house where we lived was sold, so our parents moved to the south side of town, south of the Roundhouse. This was a fun place, we enjoyed living there. Mother was so much fun, she played ball with us, even though she couldn't run, she would bat the ball and one of us would run for her. She played marbles with the boys and won nearly every time. Mother could play checkers and win, she could challenge most anyone. She sewed for hours, not only for her own children but for neighbors as well and was happy doing it. She whistled every time she sewed. Most of the time she used the old treadle machine, but later she bought an electric one. And did she whip up a storm with the new one.
Mother was expecting Neil in 1930, and was miserable. It was during canning season so everyone pitched in to help. Stephen Neil was born 22 Sept 1930 and had a real struggle arriving. Dr. Davis told Daddy he had done all he could do to save her and did we believe in prayer? Very special prayers and administrations were given to her. Joe Owens and Sarge Rice never left her bedside until Neil was born. Neil was such a sweet and affectionate child, he has been loved by all of us all his life.
Mother and Dad's 1st grandchild, Joy Lee Sims, Mabel's daughter was born [private], in Reed Springs, MO. In April of that year, lona married Dallas Elmer Henderson, 6 Apr 1931, St. Anthony, ID. They came to Glenns Ferry and stayed with the children while Mother and Stella went to MO. to visit Mabel and see the new baby. Stella worked in Glenns Ferry, in 1932 she married Mel Blackwell. He operated the theater in Glenns Ferry. lona's Ist child Wayne Allen Henderson was born [private], he was a little red head, nicknamed Angelo. In May of 1932 our parents bought a small ranch at Pasadena Valley, about 7 miles from Glenns Ferry. lona and Dallas moved to the ranch and took Howard with them. They had a big garden, chickens, cows and pigs. There was an apple orchard, they also raised hay to feed the cattle through the winter.

They later rode on a bus to school in King Hill, Ronald graduated from High School in Glenns Ferry in 1934 and then helped on the ranch and worked to earn money to go to College.

Stella's baby boy, Leo Paul Blackwell was born [private]. Mabel's baby boy, Jack Thomas Sims was born [private]. Also in l935 she was hit broadside in her car by a Mrs .House. Her left arm was crushed between the car and the curb. Mother suffered several months during this period of healing, we were so afraid she would lose her arm, but she had such faith in Dr. Davis, she was administrated to and knew her arm would heal. Our Mother had such strong faith in her heavenly Father that she always was an inspiration to us. About this time Bob fell off of a slide at school and broke his elbow. It was in a cast for months, and has been a trouble to him all of his life. Iona's baby Wayne broke his arm at this time too.
In 1936 Ronald and Bob were sick with typhoid fever, both were at deaths door, They got this fever from drinking poor water at the Woodward farm, while helping with the haying there, It took months for them to recuperate, we were so thankful for the power of the Priesthood, it was through this power their lives were spared.
About this time Stella divorced Mel. ln 1937 she took a beauty course in Twin Falls ID, staying with the Hardesty's. When she finished her course she opened a Beauty Shoppe in Glenns Ferry. lona and Mother took care of Stella's 2 children while she was away from home. Mother and the 6 younger children lived at the ranch, and Daddy lived with Stella while working on the railroad. He spent all of his off days at the ranch with his family.

Our Father had such poor health that he wasn't able to work for several years, he was in the hospital several times when suffering. Mother and Dad bought their 1st home in Glenns Ferry, for taxes. It was a small 2 roomed house with a front porch. Hurd Vincent remodeled it for them and built on a nice kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and back porch. Most of us helped, we were so happy for the folks having their own home. They enjoyed it so much. They had always rented, so really enjoyed living in their own place. About 1946, they moved to Seattle for a few months. Daddy was so appreciative and grateful for all of the care he had received during those years of suffering, but found he could not live in Seattle, so they moved to Pocatello, ID. Their 1st home there was on 7th Street, but moved again to a nice little house on North 10th. Neil lived with them there as he was the only child left as Howard had left home when he was 17 to join the Merchant Marines. He came home on visits, but never lived at home after that. Kenneth had been in the Air Force. He had been sent to Italy, where he developed Tuberculosis. The government sent him to Fitzsimmons Hospital in Denver, CO. where he stayed for about 2 years.
Daddy's health kept going down, we were all very concerned, but Mother watched over him day and night, doing everything she could for his comfort. Daddy died 19 Oct l947 and was buried in Parker, ID. There was a funeral for him in Pocatello, then the police escorted the funeral procession to Parker, where there was another short service at the Parker church.

Her body was taken to Parker, Idaho for burial. She was laid to rest beside Grandfather Brower. Our Grandmother was such an exceptional lovely person, was loved by everyone.
Winnifred had another daughter, lona Ruth, born [private]. Mother made a visit to each of her children after Grandmother passed away. None of ua realized how ill Mother was.

Stella and Emeline took her to the Hospital in Pocatello. lona was also in the Hospital with a ruptured disc in her back and was unable to go to her until Jan 9. She was taken to surgery Jan 14. When they got her up after surgery, she hemmoraged and was never able to be on her feet again. She died of Nephritis pneumonia and jaundice, 24 Jan 1952. We were all so heartbroken at losing our beloved Mother, but were grateful that she wasn't suffering as she had been, and the Lord had taken her to her reward. She had said that her work was finished and that she was ready to go. She was buried beside Daddy in Parker the 26 of Jan after the funeral service in Pocatello.
