council with the Ancient of Days when he shall sit and all the patriarchs with him and shall

  • Notes 
    • Reuben worked as a miner at the Geyser mine before his marriage, he probably traveled through Lehi where he met Agnes, who's parents owned and operated the Lehi Hotel. Reuben was in a mining accident at the Geyser mine, where he received serious injuries. His children remembers his occupation was that of a blacksmith.
      Reuben and Agnes' marriage was strained. Out of deep love and respect for them and the hardships they and their children indured, I will not give details. Reuben and Agnes stayed together to the end, they must have loved each other.
      Reuben died in 1916, leaving Agnes with little ones that she could not financially support. The four youngest children were placed in the Salt Lake County Orphans Home and Day Nursery on 2 July 1918. Hattie, Glen and George were sent to live with several different families. They were used for free labor really. Chester was said to be adopted, however there are no records to indicate that is the case, in any event he is a missing person. Agnes was devastated over the loss of her baby Chester and longed to get her little ones back with her, she never did, She died in 1926 from a crippling arthritic condition, and I might add; most likely from stress. George Arthur Dodge is my father, he had a great love for his parents. He didn't remember his father at all, but remembered his mother as a a sweet and kind person, very fragile and bedridden.
      Although, Reuben and Agnes' lives ended on a tragic note, I believe they must have shared some good times together.
