TRIBUTE TO A GREAT FAMILY
"Having been born of goodly parents" this family established a tradition of honesty, integrity and industry. All were hard workers and believed in giving value for value received.
The world was made more beautiful because the members of this family loved to plant and nurture flowers. They were always generous with the blossoms that nature provided. The world was made fruitful because they planted gardens and bushes and trees and shared the luscious fruits thereof with neighbors, friends and those in need.
The world was made a happier place because these men and women were willing to serve God and mankind. They worked in the Church and rendered aid to the sick and the needy. Several have filled missions to help spread the Gospel message to others, that they might know the joy it can bring into their lives. Most have taught, or served in other capacities to improve knowledge and love among the children of men,
This is the value of good families with high goals.
1) The first son was born Dec. 26, 1805 and died a few hours
Christian was very poor and was unable to provide for his family, so some of the children were "farmed" out to villagers,
where they were expected to earn their board and keep.
