James Henrie (1858)

      JAMES HENRIE, 6th child of Daniel and Amanda (Bradley) Henrie, was b. 25-27 Jan. 1858, Manti, Sanpete Co., Utah [bapt. 1876, end. 3 Oct. 1888], d. 1920s, Roosevelt, Duchesne Co., Utah, bur. 11 Oct. 1922, Hayden, Uintah Co., Utah. He m. (1) 7 Apr. 1878, Manti, Utah, to Hannah Maria Snow, b. 6 Sept. 1860, Manti, d. 2 Dec. 1904, Clawson, Fremont Co., Idaho. She was a dau. of Warren S. & Maria (Baum) Snow. James m. (2) Caroline Eliza Westenskow, dau. of Hans & Karen (Peterson) Westenskow. She was b. 12 Apr. 1873, Manti, Utah [bapt. 2 June 1881], d. 1930s, in Salt Lake City.

      In the summer of 1896, James Henrie decided to leave Manti and look for a new home in Idaho. The family packed all their things in a covered wagon and the boys drove the livestock. They were a long time on the road, as James stopped occasionally to find work, and after the job was through he would continue on with his family.

      They thought of making their home several places along the way, but there seemed to be always something wrong with the locality. They finally came to the Teton Basin, then known as Pierre’s Hole. This was the most famous place for the Rendezvous in Idaho. Herds of wild elk and deer grazed in the meadows. The grass grew as high as horses. The people had to keep close watch of their animals or cattle so that they would not be killed by the bear and other fierce animals.

      Here they settled. The place later was named Clawson, Idaho. They took up a large tract of land and built a log house upon it. Farming and trading horses became James’ main occupation.

      They helped to organize a branch of the Church here; it was later known as Clawson Ward. James loved to sing and he lead all the singing. He also loved to take part in plays and did this very well. At one time he and his daughter Mary Etta were in the play “Little Eva,” which was so well liked that they took the play to many communities.

      His wife, Hannah, died shortly after the birth of their son Hannah Roosevelt, causes incident to birth. James and a friend, Henry Lamoreaux, chose the site for the first cemetery, on a little hill overlooking the valley. (It is known as the Cache Clawson Cemetery. Here his wife was buried, on December 5, 1904, the first person interred.

      James remarried to Caroline Westenskow and lived in Teton Valley until the year 1914. From there he moved to Oregon; then to Neola, Utah, where he lived until his death. He was a man loved by everyone. If anyone had sickness or was in need, he could be counted on to be the first there to help. If a death happened in a family, he was always called to prepare the body and dress him for the services. [p. 97]

      JAMES EDWARD HENRIE, eldest child of James & Hannah Marie (Snow) Henrie, was b. 4-14 Dec. 1878-9, Manti, Sanpete Co., Utah [bapt. 3 July 1887, end. 2 Feb. 1902], d. 1940s, Driggs, Idaho, and bur. 27 Oct., Clawson, Idaho.

She was b. 10 Aug. 1884, Salem, Utah Co., Utah [bapt. 1 Aug. 1895, end. & H. 7 Apr. 1904].

      James Edward was the first missionary called from his community in 1902. He labored in the Northern States Mission for two years. After his return in [p. 98] 1904, he married Rosa Eliza Shaw, a daughter of another pioneer family that came to the valley in 1888.

      He was a farmer and loved to trade horses. He admired good horses and always drove a “foxy” team. For a long time he had the first and only surrey buggy in his community. The family had many good times, dressing up in their best clothes, and going for a ride in this buggy.

      James Edward and Rosa Eliza were ardent Church workers and taught their children that God and the Sabbath came first. He was always ready to help the sick and needy. At one time during an epidemic of smallpox, no one but James Edward would help a certain family. When their daughter died, he helped the family care for the body and arrange the outside services to be held for her. He was asked to kill their old cat so that it would not carry the germs.

      He spent a great deal of his time logging. One time when he was out on a logging job he had the big toe of his right foot bumped and then frozen. This gave him considerable trouble. Years later he bumped it again and, with the poor circulation, he suffered greatly. He had to have the leg amputated at the knee. He was never contented and happy, and never enjoyed good health after his leg was removed. Ten months after the operation he passed away from a heart attack. He is now resting in the cemetery his father chose and where his mother lies. Rosa Eliza is living at Driggs, Idaho; for the past year she has been ailing in health. They had 7 children:

1.       Rosa Elva Henrie, b. 21 Apr. 1905, Haden, Fremont Co., Idaho [bapt. 1910s, end. & S.toH. 1930s]; m. 1930s, Salt Lake City (L.D.S. Temple) to Paul Tiimothy Delaney, s. of Joseph & Sarah (Lewis) Delaney. He was b. 2 Jan. 1904-5, Dedham, Carroll Co., Iowa [bapt. 1910s, end. 1930s].

            Paul did not have the privilege of being reared in the Church as his father was from Ireland and did not belong. Although his mother was a member, only every other child in the family was allowed to be baptized L.D.S. Through hard work and sincere prayer he has gained a strong testimony; he has been Superintendent of Sunday School, 2nd counselor in the Bishopric, and now is Bishop of Darby Ward. During the period he has been Bishop, a new chapel has been built and dedicated by Pres. David O. McKay. After the services, Pres. and Sis. McKay and several others came to their home for dinner. Pres. McKay blessed their baby Aleaha, who had an infected leg, and she improved immediately and now runs everywhere. They have had many faith-promoting incidents in their married life.
